    Mine

    Saturday shakedown, finds caliper to close to spokes, but not by much. Could be the thickness of paint on the brake bosses. 5 hours later test ride over, time to tweak. Numb hands can't be good. The comp doesn't come with pedals now either. Show us your Moto Fatbikes! :-)-image.jpg

    His & Hers Fatties

    Got them done and a short park ride. Super fun in river rock and pea-gravel. Can't wait for the snow.

    Finally stopped raining in MD so I was able to get out for a quick ride at the nature area/trail down the street along with a short ride down the beach.

    It is going to take some time to get used to the fat tires, but I am having a blast with it.

    Just after assembly:

    Touring around some local woods. Didn't get a picture of the sandy riverbank, but that's where the bike really excelled. The super wide handlebars made some of the dense forest difficult to navigate.

    You know you can cut them down if they are too wide for you, right? I would leave them until you've tried it on really thick sand, mud, or snow... but it's up to you.

    Yeah, I could but it's not worth the effort at this point. It's just something to get used to.

    Trail ride

    Got mine out on some trails this weekend. Love it so far, it's been better for Florida trail riding than my Trek Remedy 5. With long uphills or downhills, the trek might be better, or even long straight flat stuff, but on the rocks and roots of the local parks here, I love the fatty.

    T Wing, where you riding that? I usually bring a 29er fully to Boyette and Alafia but I keep thinking a fatty would rock down there.
    I like turtles

    That was at Markham, I'm on the other side of the everglades. Is it worth the drive over there for your trails?

    These Moto Fatbikes are looking pretty cool to me! I usually ride a 21 inch MTB frame. I noticed the Moto's largest size is a 19 inch frame. Have any tall people around 6'4" or 6'5" ordered the 19" frame? If so how does it fit? I want a Fatbike to post a Photo of, but I want it to fit me properly

    Comp

    Here is my 15" Comp, mods so far:
    Cut down seatpost, swapped handlebar for a 710mm and added new Oury grips, and a Shimano CS protector.
    Cleaned up the cabling a little bit too. They're still too long, but I wanted to get some seat time before I trim the housings.
