    Got in my first ride on the Growler. It almost didn't happen, I noticed the derailleur hanger was a little tweaked on the Friday night before the race and failed at straightening it. Willo saved my butt by overnighting me a new hanger. BIG thanks to Willo for making a special trip to FedEx (after it sounded like he had just got home too). I was about ready to give up and admit defeat but he made sure I was ready to ride by Sunday.

    The bike did great. With the conditions we had I was really glad that I opted for the Bud/Lou combo and the Bluto.

    Tavis!

    I am glad I was able to help get you up and running. Those conditions looked brutal. You know they were when even the bud and lou were struggling to keep you upright. Looks like the bike was running good. You can hear that rear cassette spinning away on those downhills. Thanks for posting the video and pics!

    Wheels!

    Good looking bikes. A little longer chainstay but love the color options. Great pricing too. This might be a good way to get the SRAM eagle 1x12 on a bike.

    Phatallica (my Growler MBS) in her Sonoran element. My 40K race is in 29 days and I covered about 2/3rds of the course today. I'm whopped but feel pretty good. I think I got this.

    Hey SalsaSalsa!...I think Willo (owner of Growler Bikes) will likely chime-in with the specifics; however, I'm pretty sure it's 69-deg.

    I will absolutely agree with you on it being trail ready. On my ride today, the most fun I had was our descent. It was about 20 minutes of 20+mph downhill and about 70% of the trail down was littered with rocks (kinda like the ones my bike is leaning against in the last two pictures. My Growler MBS just soaked that stuff up (and I noticed near the bottom of the trail that I was just one-click off of lockout on the Bluto!...forgetful me).

    Anyway, I was very impressed with the handling all the way down...it was incredible. My buddy was the one GoPro'ing today, I left mine in the truck. I'll see what kinda footage he's got ....his GoPro should have picked-up a lot of my backside ....He's riding a 29'er and I just smoked him all day long on the descents (and admittedly he chewed me up a bit on the ascents).

    Thanks Grimacetimus for jumping in for me! You are ablsolutly correct. The headtube angle is 69° on the Growler Mr. Big Stuff.

    That's a little slacker then my Blackborow, nice. I am loving that fat bikes are getting set up for trails. At 43 I am okay going a little slower up to make th technical easier and the downhill safer and who doesn't want to go faster.

    Salsa...just a little more of my back-story...

    I've been riding something on two-wheels since I was 3 years old ...a 50/50 mixture of dirt-bikes (motorcycles) and BMX & Mountain bikes. I preface with that, because I do have some learned/ingrained riding skills.

    That being said, I have been away from the leg-powered game for quite a while (10+ years)...and have been throwing around a 900# bagger on the highways instead. I still have fun doing that, but it just doesn't offer me the same kind of health benefits or full familial time I like. Anyway, I have been incredibly surprised with my Growler MBS. It has been very nimble and a joy to ride thru all kinds of terrain here in the desert southwest. (I admittedly only have about 50 hard miles on it, but those miles have been over sandy washes, loose gravel, hard-pack & the uber-rocky downhills I mentioned.)

    We're about the same age (I'm 45), and I tip the scales at 230# ...trying to get down to 180. And the Growler MBS is taking everything I can throw at it. I forgot to mention that I had a few opportunities to catch some air yesterday too. Nothing crazy, just probably 18-24" drops from a stair-step in the trail. Still fun as all get out!

    The last thing I'll say is never once did I feel out of control. With the Magura brakes on this baby, they were always there for me to get me out of any trouble I saw coming. Can't believe how much fun I had yesterday. Could ramble on for hours....

    Grimace, while I was in Az a few weeks ago, the opportunity to ride some damn nice terrain was amazing. Glad to see you threw your hat in the ring with the Growler. It looks great. It seems that Growler and RSD have done a nice job of making a fatbike that is not just a repurposed commuter. Good stuff, Growler Bikes!!
    You keep hitting the dirt and riding it wide open throttle and you'll make your goal! Just do yourself a favor and work your way up to it tho.
    How is the clearance of the pedals?

    Banshee...no doubt about it, I'm riding at my comfort level. Especially being on trails for the first time, I don't like to work-up to much speed unless I can see well ahead. One of the first lessons I learned about riding on two wheels was avoiding "riding over your head." I've taken my fair share of spills ...and I don't think my current 45 year-old bag of bones would like me too much if I started that up again. There's also a pretty significant difference in technique between the petro-powered and leg-powered .....the throttle has saved me many, many times ....so I ride quite a bit differently on MTB/my Growler.

    I have had a couple of pedal strikes; however, it wasn't for lack of clearance as much as it was poor technique on my part, going up gnarly ascents with big rocks...no boulders...in the trail. As far as descents go, I level my pedals on the straights and drop the outside pedal on turns. I have yet to have any kind of pedal strike in those situations.

    For comparative purposes....my small-frame Growler MBS has about 6" of ground clearance to the pedal, at bottom of stroke ....and it's close to 12" from the ground to the bottom-bracket.

    (EDIT: Actually, it's closer to 12.5" from the BB to the ground.)

    Grimace, sounds like they hit it with the Growler! I can't remember the last time I had a pedal strike, but they have been far and few between. My 907 was plain and simply a manufacturing plant for pedalstrikes.
    The long trail in you pic looks like a flowy rail trail. You should be able to wind it up some and get a feel for acceleration and speed. Basically, what you have is much like what I have, a mountain bike that can wear Ronald McDonald's shoes! I just cannot get enough of riding the fat. I think you're just as hooked. Props, my friend, props...

    Thanks DD.

    One of the strengths of this product is that the (still) small business model allows Willo to customize your order.

    I've looked at a bunch of tires all of which he will throw on the bike at your request. The stock tires (Fat B Nimble) are an all-around tire that likely will work for many, while I've seen others putting on Bud n Lou, Van Helgas, and so on. JJs would be great for summer, but I wanted an option for all-season use and also that didn't break my budget (anything by 45 North). I wanted t go a little wider and as a stocky guy was a little nervous about the sidewalls on the Nimbles.

    Bottom line is put what you want on there. I think I'll go with https://fat-bike.com/2017/02/mid-ter...ene-wazia-4-6/ minus the studs. Should be good for fun mountain riding - not going to be racing any time soon and still work well for summer and winter (since I probably won't be seeing any of the really deep stuff).

    Already have a Bud but missing the Lou so my plan is to use the Fat B's in the mean time (while saving $$$ for the Lou) and use them as my other than winter tires. Some of my biking buddies ride Fat B's all winter and are happy with them so no worries for now.

    My issue now is to find a rideable trail around here, we have been pounded with snow and all trails near me are not groomed and tomorrow a thaw starts, good times in central new york.

    Not the best conditions for the maiden ride but had fun and can truly say that the MBS is a lot better (and lighter) than the Minnesota 2 that I was riding. Still need to make some minor adjustments but the ride was great, need to get used to the 1x11 gearing coming from a 2x9.

    Looks like a kick Devil! It rained on me all weekend here in AZ and I have some serious cabin fever. Gotta get out and ride my MBS today!

    Wheels set me up 2x11 until I can get a few pounds of my abdominal fat tire. I've got a 22/32 set of front rings and I've had to use the 22T/42T combo plenty of times. But my strength and stamina is growing a bit with each ride. I'm hoping to be down 40# and down to 1x11 (probably a 28T or 30T single-ring) by my birthday...about 8 months away.

    Happy riding!

    Tavis ...I've sure looked at them a lot. More trying to figure-out if it is something I need. I think I've reached a conclusion where the price just doesn't justify it for the very rare occasion that I might use it. Of course, with the current MBS frame, I think you have to go with an external cable, which a couple of vendors don't even offer, based on my research.

    If you decide to get one, let us know how it goes!

    *** Growler Race Report ***

    Well folks ...this fat man has some more work to do.

    The first thing I want to mention is how awesome, agile and easy to ride my Growler MBS is. I've had my MBS for exactly two months now. My very first ride was a pretty easy 6-mile jaunt in the desert. Ho-leeee cow was I a mess after that first ride. I haven't been able to ride as much as I'd have liked; however, I managed to get in about 75 miles prior to today's race (Cactus Cup - FT40 ...a 40K/26-mile race). We even went out multiple times in the last 3 weeks and rode different parts of today's course. Unfortunately, there was a pretty critical section that we neglected to ride that would have likely forced a change to our training regimen.

    Three miles into the full course, we encountered a rocky climb up ....well, I'll call it a cliff .....but it was about a 400' climb through a series of (all uphill) ridge-runners & switchbacks littered with grapefruit-to-pumpkin size boulders in the trail.

    Making that climb took so much out of me (and my riding partner). On the backside downhill section, my buddy took a spill and in the process his rear wheel came off (Spesh 29'er). We were sidelined for a little over 15 minutes while we dealt with a bent derailleur hanger (the mount point...hanger was actually fine), brake pads that didn't want to open back-up ....finally we got the wheel back on and everything checked-out (thank goodness I had some tools). So, we pushed on.

    Around mile 6, we starting being trailed by the "clean-up pace-setter". He patiently trailed us ....when we stopped at a checkpoint, my buddy noted that we had averaged just 3.9 MPH with our "surprise" cliff climb and the crash repairs delay. We were arguably looking at exceeding the maximum time allowed by the race organizers. We attempted to pick-up the pace but "the cliff" really took it out of us...and we faced far more ascending than descending ahead. At the half-way mark, we had "improved" to a 4.3 mph average.

    Anyway, it had become clear that we were not going to make it thru the course in the 5-hour time limit. We exited the course & picked-up an all-downhill return trail.

    I really think we could have finished the course .....with a lunch-break and a nap!

    I had a blast and learned a lot about how much further I have to go. In the two months since getting my MBS, I've only managed to drop about 12 pounds ....but at that rate, if I keep at it, I should easily be a full 60-70 pounds lighter for next year's event.

    In spite of my first race being a DNF ...I couldn't be happier with my experience thus far. Getting back on a bike ...choosing the fat tire geometry ....and selecting Growler Bikes has been an incredible adventure that's just getting started!

    I am mildly disappointed that I could not finish today; however, I learned so much about my Growler, my technique and competitive MTB racing, that I don't think I'd change a thing. Liposuction. Maybe lipsuction. ....just kidding, of course. I'm getting rid of the extra parts of Grimace the old-fashioned way.

    Rubber side down! Everyone have a great weekend!

    Some pics .....

    Grimace, the important thing is that you took away from it a great experience in general. Getting in shape is an investment of time, persistence and more time. You already have the largest contributing factor down, passion for the sport! That passion will take you there and get you feeling the best you have in years. But, it takes time to work up to that kind of exertion and you'll get there.

    Banshee ... Thanks! Couldn't have said it better myself. My stamina is 5x what it was just 2 months ago ...but I definitely have a way to go. Lookin' forward to the trip. Phatallica and I are in it for the long haul.

    These look pretty nice. Any plans for a full suspension fat bike?

    Hi Blinkz!

    We have several bikes in testing currently. The next two bikes that will most likely launch will be a carbon fatty and an aluminum full suspension 27.5/29. We haven't released any details just yet but you should see something before DirtFest. At least 1 of those bikes will launch at that festival.

    Wheels!

    Very cool, I'll keep watching.
    Do you currently offer custom colors on your carbon frames or only the ones that can be powder coated?

    One of the most attractive aspects of Growler is that we customize our bikes at this price point. With the exception of a few limited edition versions that will be launching soon you will be able to full customize the carbon bikes just like the current lineup.

    Hi Plasmaguy!

    We will be launching the 2 position dropout Nitro Stout Carbon Fat Bike no later than May 17th. It will go on display for the first time at our booth at DirtRag's DirtFest May 17-21. We will be releasing more details of this bike soon. If you want to get a sneak peak at the Nitro Stout follow on social media the pro downhill racer Amanda Batty. She is working on a sick fat bike video using a limited edition Nitro Stout as we speak. We also repost all of her stuff on our social media as well.

    No problem. I know how the mobile devices can do that.
    Great.

    I'll be watching.

    PhdPepper!

    Just waiting for the word. USPS has the logistics to get it to your base in Germany. I hope all is well and you and the boys and girls over seas are staying safe.

    Haven't posted in a while but I figured I'd chime in on my rig.
    I borrowed a demo bike for my brother who's interested now in getting into biking but the demo from Wheels had the 29+ wheelset. So I swapped the fatty tires for the 29er tires and mingia does it rip. I had a rigid fork set up for the winter so I decided to put the bluto back on with these wheels and it was as comfortable as I could have possibly wanted it to be. The setup climbed and cornered well and was fast as hell on the downhills I encountered. I've ridden mine as a fatty and as a 29+ rig so far so if you have any questions, let me know. I'l be glad to share with you.
