    Puffin in the desert sand [O]

    What is better on Independence Day than a mid-day fat bike ride in the desert sand dunes and sage, in 100F heat on my Singular Puffin? Not much.

    Is it a soft terrain bike or...

    ...a fat tire trail bike?

    Well--I would call it a mixed terrain trail bike.

    The Puffin rides very well in the sand, even with my 65mm rims. I am very pleased.

    Desert riding is no fun at all. Save your $$$ and buy a road bike.
    Safe riding,

    I already have a road bike so I'll have to buy a fatty.

    Are my road tires too fat?
