    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.

    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.

    The MS charity ride draws a lot of people who only ride once a year: to raise money for MS. The MS society also runs an MS walk, so I guess some people figure they would rather ride their bike once a year than walk once a year. But the way the event is set up it also attracts serious century riders.

    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!
