    Loving these fat bikes, like a self propelled dune buggy - out of interest, what weights are builds being built at? 30lbs? 40 lbs?

    I haven't bothered to weigh mine but I'd guess close to 40lbs even with my carbon seatpost.

    I will say when comparing pedaling efficiency to a DH bike I once had (33 lbs or so) the Pugsley is far superior. I only notice the weight when I have to lift or push the thing.... or trying to power over an obstacle at almost stall speed.

    That said, you can put down an unbelievable amount of power with zero finesse because the tires just wont let go.
    Just keep pedaling...

    generally speaking aside from a 'custom' build the steel or alum bikes range from 30-36lbs and if built from scratch can be 27lbs if desired.

    Finally got a pic of the Moonie standing on it's own in the soft silt. Bikesploring along Nine Mile Creek in the MN River Bottoms. Other Fat bikes had been by earlier. Tried to ride across the creek at a thin spot, but it was like knee deep quicksand, not even the BFL's had enough float for that. It was worth taking a shot though.

    If you do not want 100 questions, SMH, LOL, WTF, high-fives, "can I touch it?", people videoing/photoing you, or to talk to anyone, do NOT do a 100 mile road century with a fat bike.

    I did the Seagull Century on the Eastern Shore of Maryland that starts from Salisbury University and goes out to Assateague Island on the Atlantic with my Vertigo fat bike, shod with Surly Black Floyd tires and 20 psi. I ended up getting 2 flats from stupid tiny thorny balls at Assateague when I rode off the path and into the grass to check out the wild ponies. I replaced one tube (which eventually reflatted), but kept topping off my tires until the end of the ride (36 miles later).

    I have problems with my knees and IT band after about mile 50 of any biking event I do, and this was no exception. At that point, it was a struggle, but I managed to finish. I didn't smash any records, but was just happy to git'r done. My buddy Zack pulled me in for the last 13 miles of the ride.

    Great ride, sir! Sounds like you had fun.

    Honestly, I got similar treatment at the Arlington County Fun Ride and that was only about 17 miles.

    That's Buck-fitty Poncho Man. Not sure what his superpowers are, but I'm guessing they involve acquisition of rain gear at reasonable prices.

    No offense intended to anyone in the photo. It is early enough that I think I'm funny.

    Indeed. That section of trail has some very nice brambles along the trail's edge. It is hard to make it through without losing a little blood.
