    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.

    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.

    From the BIizzard last week

    Ice storm turning into Heavy Snow + 40+MPH Winds = 0 to 8ft of snow.
    I ran to the grocery store on the Pug in equal parts due to the Subaru probably getting stuck and I wanted to go out in snow/ice/-40F wind chills. My pregnant Wife was happy she got her Doritos, I was happy I didn't hurt myself on the ice.

    Here are some pictures from a recent trip to the Hoggar desert in south Algeria during which I tested a prototype fat bike, I hope you enjoy the views

    One of my Touareg guides at the campfire



    From the top of the Assekrem, pretty high at 2780 m altitude. The mountains are what's left from old volcanoes, the harder lava tubes having withstood erosion more than the bigger cones. Pretty amazing countryside



    Fat bikes are pretty amazing too... not only in the soft stuff, but they instantly became my favourite rough-terrain steeds. On this slope full of rocks stemming from an old volcanic eruption nearby I actually had been going sideways UP the slope, not down. Made pretty light work of it, something that would be unthinkable on my normal all-mountain bike.



    Just one of the views along the road



    Everyone in the know expects fat bikes to behave in soft stuff. Still it was pretty amazing to negotiate turns like this in the middle ring like it was nothing



    Tea ceremony around the campfire



    And in the meantime this was baking in the sand beneath that fire... pretty amazing people those Touareg: very friendly towards total strangers, resourceful (not a grain of sand on this bread when eating it an hour afterwards) and just plain nice people with a wonderful sense of humor



    Chugging along on one of the many singletracks between those mountains



    And here's what makes those amazing tracks, camel (actually dromedary) trains. You meet them at the most unexpected



    Abdellah, our cook, trying out the bike on a sand wash and looking for the perfect bivouc spot



    Which would have been this one. The speck in the middle of the wash is one of the guides praying toward Mecca.



    When I went exploring in the wash I came across this, 6000-years old rock art. Pretty amazing that giraffe, buffalo and rinoceros once roamed the Sahara.



    Once again having fun in the rough stuff, not all camel trails are flat

    I posted what I know of future production of the bike on this other thread here:

    Fatbike frame comparisons

    I'll ask what size they can go down to. After trying this prototype out I ordered an XL one I'll post some pictures of that one too, soon. But I'm afraid in not such spectacular scenery...

    I asked and the smallest he could make it would be around 40 cm, center to top (the seat tube). I have no idea to what size that translates ?

    That`s a 15 3/4" frame , good news for those that can ride a 16" Pug , but not so good for those that need a 14".

    Many thanks for checking for me anyway.

    Fat Muni

    Hey Mojoe, how long are your cranks?

    I'm struggling to get up some of the hills around here with 150s on a KH29 but I've only been riding 6 months. I would be fine on the sort of terrain shown in your videos.

    175's on that muni.
    I run 150's on this one....
    http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_SoQ7WQjmEh...9_muni+047.jpg

    and climbing is a lot harder. Years ago, when I had a couple 29ers, I ran 125's but counted on speed to get me up and over short climbs.

    My wife is now hunting down all fatties for putting a spark in my brain to build another bike! Watch your FATBACK!!! Great pictures!! I wish it snowed more in Arkansas. Looks like a blast! I'll probably build a dual sport version aka mountain cruiser.

    Damn! Great pics all! And effing nice bikes too. Unfortunately no real need for fatties here in London, but thanks to this thread am now determined to build myself one. Just as an excuse to go to the Sahara and ride around!

    I don't think so... most troubles in Algeria are up north or close to certain borders (Lybia). Tamanrasset is about 1250 miles down south and is the "gate" to black Africa. The local people are the Touareg, which are no Arabs but a Berber tribe. On top of the Assekrem there's a small community of Christian followers of father Foucauld, nobody takes offence - at all.

    Anyway, it's obligatory now to contract a local guide service and those guys know very well what's up. I spent some night around the campfire asking about the stories you hear about kidnapped tourists: when I was there a group of German 4x4's had dissapeared (1000 miles away in another part of the country). They were released a bit later.
    From what my guides had heard through the grapevine it was a dispute between drug smuggling partners ...
    The only people we came across in those mountains were wandering families of Touareg herdsmen, which were always very friendly encounters. They all know each other and the (still) wandering families are very poor but held in high respect by their more "civilised" tribesmen. Those and the occasional camel train, either transporting things or carrying the luggage of groups of hikers or lone 4x4 with locals.

    If you're interested in a trip there, pm me. I'm putting together a biking trip there. In march next year with a flight to Tamanrasset out of Paris. A fatbike will be a plus for the route I have in mind but it's doable on a skinny one as well - the soft or really rough stretches aren't that long.

    Half Fattie

    So here's mine. OK, not 100% fattie. Not ridden in the snow much either.... Read never.... I've had this for quite a number of years and have covered a lot of remote area tracks with it although this trailer is a recent addition. I have another BOB, an Ibex and I had the swingarm modified on that to also take the Endo, gave very specific drawings to frame builder....he decided he knew better...result, screaming failure and one pissed off Al in the bush Anyway this Yak is better as the old bloke who did this job was very particular in following my brief....result = 1 happy camper

    I have 2 full wheels for the SC32, 1 for the Endo and 1 for a Specilized fat Bob / Maxxis Hookworm. The Hookworm / Fat Bob combo gets used on the rear as well, accounting for the skinny rear rim, I'd love to be able to go up to an Endo on the rear but it just can't happen....time for a new project maybe

    Even though the modded Ibex trailer was a dog, I still towed 52Kg of snot in it on one trip, 26Kg of that consisted of water, the track consisted of 250 Km's of loose dry sand in temps up to 47 C. Sometimes I wonder about me.....

    The head set is off a Gazelle, it's a quill type fitting but I had a sleeve machined up so's it could be inserted as a quill, into an A head tube. I pretentioned the forks up then used an A head gooseneck to keep the tension. I was a bit leary of it at the begining but it seems to work well, not reconmended to to go screamin' off a drop off with it though ... Great for long distance as one can sit very up right and get to see the scenery but if the wind should pickup or hills be encountered, pull the lever, drop the bars, lockup and hey presto, I'm head down bum up....

    By the way, this is a great forum and I love some of the rides shown here.
