    Show us your Fat Bikes

    This is a "Lets see your Fat Bike" thread....

    I'll start

    Here's my Quiring 29er setup for winter duty. It happens to fit a 3.0" x 26 rear tire. And of course it will fit an Endomorph in the front with a DeSalvo fat fork.

    Here's my Surly 1x1 fat bike conversion... large marge rims, DH tires, and gears.

    It's a 'budget' fat bike. Not nearly as cool as some of the fat bike projects already posted here.

    This was made (IIRC) by Traffic cycles for the "Ride the Spine" guys. I think they named it Chupacabra - but I can't find much by that name.

    Ironic to the creation of this board, I just put the finishing touches on Barny's Snaux Flux. 34.4 pounds of Monster Bike. Not a bad weight for a 4x4" full suspension bike with truck rubber.





    We're going on a ride today. Action pics to follow, hopefully.

    Here is my faux Fat bike.
    Banshee_SS_Fat.jpg

    I really thought about a Pug, but wanted something a little more durable (dare I say versatile in this forum?). Anyway I still want a little more fat for next Winter, so I'm thinking of building an endomorph wheel (50mm) on a Viscious 135 fork.

    Any thoughts how this bike might ride as a Front Fat? Above I see a lot of Gazz/Endo combinations...

    It is a 2008 Banshee Scratch, sadly the last of it's kind. It was designed to clear up to 3-inch tires. That is a 2.6 Gazz in the rear, since I have the rear axle as far forward as possible. 3-inch shouldn't be a problem with the axle slid back a bit. I don't think a pug/endo would ever fit. I really like the bike and tires for all-around riding. I can't imagine what wider tires are like!

    I don't have any tire clearance shots, but I can take a few when I get home this weekend...

    Extreme Terrain Bike - The FATTEST

    Dan Hanebrink was Pioneering Fat Tire cycling Long ago, as were a few others - i bought 1 of his Extreme Terrain bikes. I only Rode mine in the sand, Not much snow here in So. Cal., the bike was a Blast on the sand, riding nearer the surf where the sand was damp was much easier, but this bike floated over almost everything except the DEEPEST sand, these tires ran at about 3 lbs of Pressure. NO Doubt, these are the Fattest of the Fat! I Wonder if Dan will ever make these again since there is much more interest in this type of Bike now, he stopped a few years back as demand was too low to continue production, he was ahead of his time for sure!
    I sold mine last year as i was just NOT using it enough and had too many bikes at that time to justify keeping them all.
    This Bike weighed in at 40 lbs., and felt like it had a 50/50 Front to Rear Weight Ratio, it could NOT wheelie, so you could muscle it up ANY hill you had the strength for - it could handle almost ANY Grade, i once rode it up Fargo Street in Los Angeles, which is reportedly a 33% grade (you can Google it) and about 2 city blocks long.
    Any other Hanebrink ET BIke owners out there?

    I can't see a bike using 19" trials wheels being all that great for float. As far as I know the widest tire you can get that fits on the rims is the Monty Eagle Claw at 2.6" but I would love to be proved wrong.

    My WildFire...

    ...in lean mode. I also have racks for front and rear, along with a front triangle bag, but I've just been riding local stuff lately and have been enjoying not riding the packmule version. Also now equipped with 70mm Speedway rims, lighter and a bit more flotation than Large Marges. I've had it for three years now, and with each upgrade it just keeps getting better!

    measure from 12.5" to 13.5" from the axle along your chain and seatstays. if there is @3" clearance between each chainstay, and likewise between each seatstay, it will work.

    My Pugsley

    Last shot is the wheel I rigged up as a fixed gear with a rear SS hub and a bottom bracket lockring. I usually run it up front so I have a limp home solution if there is a problem with the freehub in back.
