    Poison Spider Trail on a fat bike.

    Kinda newby fat bike question: would Poison Spider be a much better trail on a fat bike than my 29'r 2.2? I would think the fat bike would roll the sand pits easily. Thoughts?

    Lots of kids tell me they want to be firefighters when they grow up, I tell them they can't do both!

    Fun on 2.2, even better with the fat, especially the sand. Fat is slightly slower than FS down the portal trail.

    Sounds like tons of fun on a fatbike.
    I remember almost getting lost up on the Poison Spider Mesa back in 1994. Was getting in a few days of Moab riding on the way back home to Salt Lake after doing the Cactus Cup down in Scottsdale.
    Found my way down from the mesa right before it got dark.
    Fatbike (and GPS) sounds like a good thing for the Spider

    Yes, definitely! The fatty will rip through all the miserable sand. Have fun!

    It is sandy. I think it would be a blast on a fatty. Probably not the Portal though.
