    At some point I will switch out the Large Marge for a Marge Lite.
    Glad you went with a faster tire out back Pete that nev had to be dragging some ass. This is Travis from the OMG rides.

    Mine:





    Super fun, but need to replace the front tire for something with more grip - currently waiting on a first version (heavy) Devist8er to tide me over until the Husker's are available again.

    I hate to say that I don't find my Husker Du any grippier than my Larry for summer riding. I looks way cooler but that's all that I like about it after my first few rides.

    Here's my RM Hammer29 with the fat front. Thinking I may trade out the Larry for a Nate.

    Anyone run a Nate (or anthing else with some knobs) on the Maverick SC32?

    Couldn't resist trying a fat front

    For trail riding. The KM is my experimental platform. 5 tire sets, 2 crank sets, 3 wheel sets, 3 forks, 4 handlebars, geared and SS.

    Currently i am building up a KM.
    I will be using it as a normal 29er most of the time.
    And with kris Holm rims and Big Apples it won't be a skinny 29er.
    And i still have my Pug's stock fork and a offset SS wheel laying around...
    So with a fat front i have a nice loaner to get others to ride with me.

    I totally dig it..

    My favorite line on the trail when asked about why the big front tire -
    "So that people will stop running away from me and just stop and talk" said with the best Rick Moranis accent.

    So far I have be able to ride it better than on my Heckler, all I have to do is watch out for sharp - g outs and really new pointy rocks...(I weight 240 lbs) and I can fly over everything.


    I will be putting a 9 speed 35mm rim on the back as soon as I can get the coin for a cluster.
    Now I have a stock SS rear wheel with 2 cogs 20 and 34 and a friction thumb shifter.

    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    This is my 'accidental' Fat Front

    This Mav DUC 32 was very tatty when I bought it.

    It got stripped and re-sprayed by me, new decals from Gil at the Bikeshed + clearcoated and then a 'larger' rider tune up and 29er spacers from Craig at Simpson Cycle Services.

    It was 'meant' to go on the Fat Klein.........but during strip down I spotted a crack on the driveside chainstay weld so that will need sorting first

    So, newly refurbed fork and nothing to put it on.........

    Well not quite

    This is what happened

    ^All sorts of fun stuff. He has the Fargo that is posted earlier on. (and more recently a self built custom frame fat bike)
    I feel like subscribing to the thread and I thought I'd throw up some of my inspiration





    I would love to have a troll set up very similar to this!

    Not quite fat-front, more fat-tail...



    Reasoning - Have fattie - ride rock-garden-rich tracks near home - find my speed limited by unsophisticated full-fat-front - thought I'd try something slightly different.

    Works quite nicely so far....

    Here is my Brodie Drifter. It is technically a 700cc commuting bike mixed with an MTB. Has some decent clearance in the back so I am running COntinental Diesels in 2.5 on the rear. This is a temp setup while I finish my necro build.

    Had a great first snow ride this weekend, ss too!

    I've got around 100 miles in the last 10 days on my new fat front, and I am loving it!

    The biggest issue i'm dealing with is adjusting my bunny hops. Like everyone said, I'm finding that as I let air out and go from maybe 12 psi towards 6 psi, most of the ride gets better. But bunnyhopping at low pressure is crazy! If you're leaning in the slightest, the tire squirms away from you when you preload it. I was trying to hop one of the bigger logs across the trail, maybe 24" high and I had just let some more air out...wasn't ready for the squirm and didn't get the front wheel up in time.

    Now I'm trying to figure out if I can fully adjust my hop, either preloading the front end less or just muscling through the squirm or if I need to run slightly higher pressure than I would otherwise. I've also felt the rim hit a few bigger routes at the bottom of hills, so maybe I need to keep pressure a bit higher to keep the wheel and bead protected.

    surly bud on darryl with salsa instigator fork. the bike is a bikes direct gravity 29.4.

    I'm looking forward to having this as a permanent set-up...



    I was only able to take a couple laps around the block on the demo wheel, but I think this will be the preferred front wheel set-up for this bike.
