So... a month or so ago I build up a fatbike. I figure I'll use it once or twice during our very short mud season.
Turns out it's the most amazing bike ever and I can't put it down. I tried to find terrain that put a frown on my face but no matter how sandy, chunky, crappy, rocky, steep or overgrown I rolled I just kept smiling. This inspired me to put a little effort into building the thing.
So... I came up with the "El Muerto"
Probably to many pics of the wheels... but that's what makes a fatbike. Saved over two pounds on the wheels alone and I can really feel it. Weighs in at a svelte 36 pounds now.
Found this interesting detail once the paint came off. Brazed fill where the fork crown bend is on both sides.
Anyways... thought I would share. Before I get to many comments about a bare steel frame keep in mind I live in a very dry part of the US and ran a Ralight XXIX SS for over a year and a half with no paint and no issue. Just having some fun and appreciating the detail of how the frame was made.
