    I like it... maybe because of the hub widths, thru axle and fork. 190mm didn't appeal but this new 150mm front does, if it comes hand in hand with 197mm rear then so be it.

    We fatbikers are simply not gnarcore enough. Now that the originator of gnar gnar shredtasticness has joined the fray, we can all call eachother brah, and dress like we are immune to mother nature....

    Nice fork though!

    Suspension forks in the snow are a waste of money, time, brain power, and adds a bunch of weight. I don't think some of these manufacturers even know what snow riding is even about.

    awesome to see a squishy fork for the masses, and for those that want it for their BIG wheeled fatties.

    You know that Rocky is based out of coastal BC right? Mild temperatures are part of the gig here so you can find snow and spring conditions a lot of the year. Hence the clothing.

    For a bunch of folks that ride goofy looking bikes you are being pretty judgemental about appearances.

    People out riding fatbikes = good.

    Worry about what you look like.
    Safe riding,

    I think we are seeing a trend of manufactures focusing on trail riding vs what we used to focus on snow/sand riding. Sure the bike is shown in the snow and it is named blizzard.

    I have a On-One Fatty and that bike is billed more for ripping up singletrack more so than riding in the snow. Granted it does just fine in the snow, but I just think a lot of newer companies are showing these fat bikes as "all-arounder" setups not just for the off season.

    I am interested in this Sun Ringle tubeless rim offering though.

    Open your mind, guess what, just because the picture shows him in the snow, that fat bike can probably go other places too ...where suspension might be needed....lol

    That comment was not regarding fashion you diva, it was regarding the riders choice of gear for the riding conditions.

    Just like you might regret wearing a winter parka while riding in 100 degree temps, he might regret wearing shorts and tennis shoes when he goes over the bars and is rewaded with a snow enema, and a long walk back to the car in snow cuz there is too much snow packed up there to sit on the bike.

    Regarless, it was a joke. Lighten up a bit man.

    How can you have any idea what the temps were when they shot that photo? Folks go spring skiing in t-shirts and shorts.

    Don't be a tool - man.

    BTW - if you want people to know you are joking that helps.
    Safe riding,
