    Yeah, and from what most everyone who has tried one says, they didn't work then either.

    In January 2012 Helen Skelton, Blue Peter presenter and adventurer, rode her HANEBRINK Extreme All-Terrain bicycle through Antartica to become the first person to ride a bicycle to the South Pole.

    The small diameter of the wheels, and their weight take away a lot of the fun factor (from what I've read). But the fact that they're still made implies that they still sell.
    This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic.

    Hydraulic disc brakes in the cold environment of Antarctica? Would that be dependable? I've always heard in extreme cold you need to run cables instead.

    They look weird, I don't think they would be nice to ride for more than a couple of miles.

    carbonio chubbster
    superfly frame, niner fork, slx 22/36 cranks, and profile 6 speed hub running 15-32, gives me nearly 5mm of chain-tire clearance. bb7's, couple other niceties.
    not half bad, bathroom scale says about 27 pounds. feels about right.
    hoping a husker du on a narrower rim will fit the niner fork?

    anywho, it's different from your fatbike for sure! :P
    so's my orange patriot with gazzis.
