    I recently bought a Larry from them, kind of annoying I had to sign for a bicycle tire. Almost had to take a day off work to get it.

    I have talked to them on the phone. They seem a little hard to deal with. I was interested in their fatbike, the "Perfect Storm", just thought it would be cool to have a fatbike made in New England. I wanted to ride some to figure out what size I like, but they didnt have any built up and wouldn't build one up for me to try, I actually asked if they could and they declined. I thought that was pretty weak. So I dont know what to make of them.

    if I were you and looking to get a New England made fat bike, i'd skip the middleman (HIBS) and go straight to the source (Frank the Welder, of FTW Industries)... to be honest, that was the only positive thing you could say about those Perfect Storm frames is that they were comissioned to FTW for the actual fabrication.. he did the welding, not the specs/design. in my opinion the frame is an odd duck and Frank could do much better with something he designed himself.

    Thats exactly why I wanted to ride one built up, didnt trust just having one shipped to me, I have contacted Frank so we'll see what he says....

    I bought a Pugsley from High Intensity last Jan. Picked it up at the shop. I found the owner to be nice as can be; definitely a mt biker. I know their retail shop is pretty much closed for the winter. Best way to contact is probably through one of his ebay auctions.
    The snow bikes built by FTWelder are not intended to run with wide rims but they will
    Fit endomorphs on reg rims. The frame/fork are not offset like a Pugsley either. Last I knew, they did regular snow rides out of the shop and had demo bikes available for anyone looking to buy.
