Hi Fellow Fatbikers,
I've been living in Sapporo, Japan, for about 4 months, and got a fatbike about 2 months ago (cancelled my Fatboy order due to delays, and got a 9:zero:7 instead!). This is post (and the blog post linked below) details my first decent fatbike ride. I've found that the ungroomed snow here is generally too deep and powdery to ride, and groomed trails are pretty hard to find, so I turned to the beach instead.
This weekend I took my 9:zero:7 190mm to Ishikari Beach, north of Sapporo, for a cruise with a long-time resident by the name of Rob. Rob doesn't have a fatbike, but since the sand was frozen solid (!), he got along just fine with spiked tyres.
I'll let Rob's fantastic pictures and blog post do the talking!

For the record, I was running 3.1 PSI rear and 3.5 front, Bud and Lou on Holy Darryls, both set up tubeless.
