    Fat Front Set-Ups: Post Your Pics

    I figured some fat bikes might be turning into fat front bikes now that summer weather has arrived in the northern climates...

    ...or maybe the southern hemisphere folks are turning their skinny bikes into a fat front for the winter?

    If you have one, let's see some pics of your fat front set-up!

    Here are a couple pics from yesterday's ride. More pics and stuff here.

    Large Marge w/ 2.7 Nevegal up front. I'm tempted to buy a Larry, but not sure it's worth the price. The Nevegal works nicely on our local singletrack.

    p.s. - MauricioB... that jersey you're wearing in your last pic is the wrong color. Should be purple and gold, not green and gold.

    Hey FT:

    1. Very nice pix of a very haute bike, and
    2. You know that's a sensitive topic for those of us on this side of the Mississippi

    1. Thanks MauricioB!
    2. All you gotta do is remind me how many times the Vikes have been to the Super Bowl and never won... the 1999 NFC Championship... the 2010 NFC Championship... the list goes on and on...

    Oh, to be a Vikes fan...

    Back to fat front bikes...

    Here's a pic of my Pug from last year that I've spammed around MTBR. The snow's almost gone so it'll soon be time to switch back.

    I'm covered in beer.

    This something you're organising yourself, or has Sam come on board about fatbikes?

    If it's homebrew, plenty pics please!

    It's in the works now. Talking with US builders. It'll be similar to Sam's Ti bike's over there. Just not Ti. Think steel + fat. More to come. More to come.

    THe Singular? It'll have a taller than normal head tube, so putting drops on it will be easier than say...a Pugsley. But not designed specifically for them like the Gryphon.

    I've never not been on board really.... Just that it's a hard thing to commit to doing minimum quantities of when I have a hard enough time keeping existing models in stock. There are some (fat) wheels in motion though, especially so as Team Singular rider Aidan Harding just took second at Iditabike - watch this space.
    Yes - I do own Singular Cycles

    I also had a fat front on my Black Sheep for a while. But it's now been permanently "borrowed" for the El M.

    I think the more people who see fatbikes, the bigger the market will get.

    I'll be looking forward to seeing a Singular version.
