    Good job! Fat Bike Air and Action Shots on Tech Terrain

    EDIT: I figured this thread could have action shots on tech terrain (or features) piggyback on top.

    Show everyone that these wide-tired behemoths can actually separate from the ground and can take on tech terrain and features

    Post up shots of you and your buds catching air on a fatty or taking on rocks, obstacles, and tech terrain. Let us know where yer at.

    Sorry sir, you are in the minority. Most of these folk would rather bolt a bunch of crap to therir bikes than catch air!

    When you find a way to get air on this sort of surface, do let us know...



    Meanwhile I will restrict my airtime to a pogo-stick.

    Tweaked the title to include "Action Shots on Tech Terrain and Features" so we can show that even though they're the best choice for snow and sand, that they can take on other conditions just as well.

    Not a pic and I've posted it before, but I think it qualifies.

    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    That fork looks like a Foes DH fork, it's what the Dorado was built after. If it is that must be a nice ride with a Nate up front!!

    Some local tech - seriously hot + humid last night. Big tires kept my spirits high though:

    Closest thing I have to an action shot right now, here is one of the mud holes in Patapsco State Park, Maryland.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/droit/7189711201/" title="DSCN2979 by bdroit, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7233/7189711201_c3b365fdef_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="DSCN2979"></a>
    Went out for a ride this morning, jumped a few of the mud holes, later in the day took the dog for a walk and one of my landing spots had stuck.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/droit/7189711259/" title="DSCN2975 by bdroit, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7238/7189711259_8d650e6a84_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="DSCN2975"></a>

    First picture in the direction of travel, second pictures is looking back at the hole showing my landing spot. The pictures don't show it well, its about a six foot hole.

    I just gotta say that I demo-ed a Carver Ti Fat Bike with a carbon fork at NEMBAFEST yesterday and it was just about the funnest bike I've ever ridden. I took it down a DH course called Jester 3 times and it was such a blast to hit tabletops and ride berms with. I was really amazed at it's capabilities as were the surprised riders whom I would catch and pass. Couldn't seem to get it more than 2 feet off the ground though!

    I usually ride alone or with the dog but these were taken when I went to NH and 2 out of 3 pics were the first time I went off em. The FatBox is still the most fun bike I've ever ridden and by far the most plush Almost 1500mi of me beating on her and still holding up well!

    Self portrait from a little while ago. Good thread to put it in so figured I'd add.
