    No pics, but my uncle demo'd a Surly and fell in love with fat bikes. It was his first time on anything but a Yeti.

    I posted a few in the daily fat bike photo thread. There's a lot of them there including a Borealus with carbon rims that weighs under 22 pounds. I'll try to take more photos in the AM.

    Vee Rubber was suppose to be the tube sponsor, and they had zero tubes. They also had very little at their booth, except one bored looking guy. Hopefully they will do better at the indoor show.

    I am really liking the Borealis fat bike. I am hoping to pull the trigger on one of their frames soon.

    Several fat bike manufactures mentioned that they expect RockShox and X-Fusion to bring fat bike suspension forks to market in the near future, though neither company would comment on the possibility.
    I guess we wait.

    That Aluboo fat bike will be coming in with a complete build with X9 at $2400. Cheaper than the new Trek.

    I'm going to be surprised if anything fat bike related comes out at Interbike that this group hasn't already seen. We are pretty up on our "top secret" and new fat-stuff... ehhh? http://www.picgifs.com/smileys/smile...eer-817053.gif

    That or we will have 3 duplicate threads for each.

    I take this to mean no new fat suspension forks were introduced at the show?

    That new 4.25" Vee/Fatback tire looks mighty nice.

    Some good info and pics here:
    Interbike Outdoor Demo Report ? Day 1 | FAT-BIKE.COM
    Interbike Outdoor Demo ? Day 2 | FAT-BIKE.COM

    The olive drab green Pugs with matching green is cool. And it looks like e13 has a new TRS crank in a fat version. Direct mount 2x anyone?

    I don't know if this has been noticed by anyone, but in the Salsa preview catalog for the Mukluk it says that geometry has been updated to accept 100mm suspension forks. It may just be for the new inverted forks that hit the market...
    Just an observation...

    That's the way it looks. If anyone had a fat suspension fork for sale for the 2013/14 season we'd know about it by now.
