i have never ridden a fat bike as well balanced as this one, its just right. it rolled straight and steady up and over everything. the trails are thrashed in jersey. there are trees down everywhere and the moonie went right around them all. the perfect bike to venture off the trail and forge new lines. i dont ever see myself getting rid of this one.
I like the orange accent color scheme on your Moonlander. What is the brand name on the fenders? I haven't seen them before. And have you gotten into serious mud with your bike to the point that you have really needed them? Did they clear out the mud effectively? Thanks...
(this is in response to #8 on this board, the "Orange Crush" bike -- this is my first post here so I am learning how the software works; I thought this question would appear under the original post in threaded format... sorry about confusion...)

They are great at keeping the wet spray off. Since they are pretty thin plastic, a sticky heavy mud will probably cause problems. I've been splashing through typical wet mud holes from the freeze thaw cycle and they've handled that well. The amount of clearance is pretty much up to the installer so plenty of room can be had.

FYI... I left the tape backing on and then used a 24" split tube as my rim strip. If you try to back it with duct tape it will crack when the tube inflates. Might not on smaller holes, but on the clown shoe cutouts it did.
