Hello all. I am a long time lurker of this website and a fat-biker as of September 2012. I own a 15" Moonlander and keep it pretty standard. I am rocking a few 'upgrades' though, as you can see from the pictures. Blue Surly rim tape, blue Peaty Lizard Skins lock on grips, blue Jagwire cable housing, anodized blue disc brake rotor bolts (I forget who I got them from), blue Growler Cage, and a PDW rear Mud Shovel (already broken).
I love this thing. Since I was 'financially relocated' in 2010, I no longer have access to good trails, such as in the Chicago area where I moved from (specifically, Naperville), therefore speed is not a huge concern of mine. I am still rocking the original BFLs (front & rear), and my Moonlander has become my daily rider. Occasionally in the summer, I'll hop on my Nirve, but for the most part it's all Surly.
When I finish school in a year or so, I am undertaking my most epic life adventure. I want to do Portland (ME) to Portland (OR) on my fat bike. I know it will be slow and cumbersome, but I am stubborn and my mind has been made up. I am working on piecing together a rack and pannier system already.
There are some cool bikes in here, and am glad to see such a fat-minded community. Keep the pictures coming!
Yes, I keep my bikes inside. Don't you?
Yes, that's exactly what you think it is.
This is an older photo, from when I put these on.

I have a few snow photos from last year and this year, but I think that's enough for now. I don't want to bore you.
