    New Fatbike rider :)

    Started reading about them, watched most of youtube and got really amped about getting one after I tried one out.. Then I visited the websites of different manufacturers and my jaw dropped, never had I expected the pricetags that popped up.

    Some time passed and I randomly walked into a store and there it was, it took a couple of visits before I walked out with it, but when I did and pedaled away I did so with a grin on my face. In the end this kickass bike only cost me $1400 (including 25% tax) well within reason for something that I'll ride for fun. (A new pugsley would be almost double)

    Ever since it has continued to blow my mind in terms of performance, it's so different from the XC oriented Scalpel that I normally ride.

    I'm a happy new fatbike user!

    PS- Diamant and Nakamura fatbikes are the same and the above is a mk1 prototype, full release of the mk2 in Norway will be in september. Norco is apparently doing a prototype based on this design aswell.

    Welcome to the world of fat. You’ll be here a while; once you go fat, you never look back.

    Looks cool, the tyres look like they might not be too grippy, but that is easily remedied!!

    Indeed, they're awful on rocks and roots. They do alright but nothing more on dry dirt so I won't change them til I have a reason to put on spiked winter tires. Perhaps I'll get some proper summer tires for next season. though.

    Here's some new updates:




    The weight is around 14,5kg I believe.
