I get interviewed by KTLA reporter Eric Spillman about my fatbike
The interview starts at 4:00 into the video. See the interview here
Eric was being pretty goofy so it is not a serious or technical interview, and it is pretty short. I rode the bike on a big charity road ride and it got more attention than every expensive road bike on the route all combined. Everyone loved it. You can watch the whole video of course.
Good on ya, two thumbs up!!!
That's cool, too bad Mr Spillman, viewed the bike as more of an oddity. However, I guess, it was out of it's element.
Congrats to you.

Most people had never seen or heard of fat bikes. That was really cool, I was sort of the fat bike ambassador out there on the course. I even met people at the end of the ride who said the had heard of me and my bike.
But there were some riders who had heard of fatbikes, too
My next road ride event is in February, I am tempted to take the Fatbike and do a full century on it.
You should definitely ride Fat for that Century DD! It is worth it at the end! And you get so much encouragement along the way!!! Great exposure on your MS ride too!
