    I can't think of anything appropriate to say, really. Is that yours? Did you have to kill someone for it?

    zabriske??? you mean Deeznutz? What is he doing on a fat bike, the beach in california??? There is a video from TdF 2010 of him introducing his DZNutz product. I shared the video with everyone that rides 'cause it was one of the top highlights of the race and it wasn't even about racing, but the "behind the scenes" preparation. The new invention "Nut Up" was hilarious.

    I suppose that would be a yes.

    I'm like that with a lot of things, actually most things.

    that is, I mean to say, its not my place to debut someone's work.
    its their work, and I believe that they should have the right to show off their work, rather than have someone "scoop" the story.

    I was just surprised to see the card in his hand!

    beautiful bike!

    It was on the front page of this site a couple of months ago. June I posted sea otter pics on my blog and it was there. See fat bikes are just not for snow any more.

    amen bighit. Fat's are not only for snow. i love riding the pugs year round. I'm impressed that someone like DZ is on a fat bike. Signs of a true bike geek if there ever was one.
    Just a regular guy.

    Certainly that is an awesome bike, but... and 'scuse me if I'm uninformed... is a belt drive a good solution on a snow bike? It would seem to have the potential to pick up snow and debris and pack up the sprockets. I would think that the belt might even warm up slightly just from friction causing any snow to melt and re-freeze on the drive line.

    Anybody with some practical experience? I'm just guessing here.

    Thanks,
    -F

    Dude, even if it's just on there for a possibility, even if only for the weigh-in... C'mon. That thing is drool-worthy, belt drive or no.

    He's gonna ride it on the beach in SoCal. That's the perfect application for a belt.

    I had belt drive for a while in the snow. Much of the time it was fine, but nice fluffy snow on a cold night would make the most god-awful racket, screecheyscrunchey, sounded like the Terminator trying to eat itself.....

    Why a fake tank ?
    And why not go for the real deal instead ?
    Handy for those outdoor overnighters.

    I don't see how I could've foreseen to ask if a belt drive makes a "screecheyscrunchey" sound in the snow. ...but that sorta answers my question.

    Well, ok a real tank for booze. But I still want to see a big honky horn on it.

    REAL COOL DZ! As far as Belt or Chain.... both gonna have issues in sand and/or snow (especially the soft/loose of either)... once you get used to dealing with it, just becomes a normal part of the ride. Like to ride this one up the beach to the Green Lantern Tavern and park it out front w/ the Harleys...

    Cheers!

    Lynskey, I presume... though BS, Jim Kish or others would no doubt build you something similar on request.

    Like Sean said I suspect you can only have a Lynsky built fatbike if you go through Speedway.

    Not true AFAIK - if memory serves, I spoke to someone there about one (a custom design, not a standard Fatback) and they seemed ready to build one for me. Could be I was talking to them about something else, but I don't think so.

    You could be right on a custom one off. Would the Newsboy count? Maybe Merlin would build one. I suppose as you suggested earlier if someone wanted one they could ask around. I still think it is a good idea to support those that have invested the time and ingenuity into this aspect of the sport.

    I totally forgot about this thread until spambot "Geokeveseened" posted his useless post. How's the bike holding up? Any pics covered in mud?
