    Fantastic 616fabrication in Landes, France

    Friday sept 13, i bought it direct in michigan, colorado
    wednesday 18, US french postal let me a note;
    Friday 20, i go to post office, incredible, it was my 616 fab...

    After serious inspect, it's cool, i decide to mount the bike.

    E13 XCX+ crankset, Hope fastno, d lite sapim, mrge lite rims and Surly 3.8 tires (to havy...)
    carbon saddle (or not), salsa bend 2 bar...
    good fat staff.

    After the surly, this FAT bike is my second fat bike.

    This frame is much lighter and more nimble and climb like a mountain goat. the head tube angle is sharp and give the rider a mountain bike style ride.

    impossible to be anonymous on the way.

    i ride it to time, and all i can say is, what a pure FAT bike my friends...
    not too heavy, unique head badge, enormous bases, disc compatible, no VB plots.

    Moonlander surly fork color match perfectly

    I put nylon crew in every hole (too much in my mind), because of salt water.
    steel frame doesn't like salt conditions.
    Crankset was really ong to install but it's a rigidity absolute monster

    do you want some pics?

    Congratulations on your purchase. Yes, pictures please! Can you ride the beach there? I am considering a trip to Provence next spring, and would like to bring my bike.

    I choose the frame for all season ride, but essential on sand.
    Surly was a good choice for mud too, 616 "ll be muddy at the first rain.

    Big Fat couldn't be on this frame, but 3.8" is enought to have fun;

    More is better?
    just sure that more 'll be heavier, so i hesitate to order big fat tire (Bud and lou) for front;
    in my mind, Lou is good to be placed on front of, on my moonlander.

    I have to ride.
    see you later...
