    Something A little different.

    Hey, My first post here, so sort of an introduction.

    I've got a rather unusual Fatbike I thought some here might be interested in. Its a full suspension long travel Monsterbike. And yeah, it's got a motor.
    I built it partly in hopes to race Pikes Peak this year. Sadly, the ebike race was cancled, but that doesn't stop the fun!

    I had this thing rolling by pedal power back in September of 2012. I don't think it was the first FS Fatbike, but It surely one of the first.
    Its rolling on a 58" wheelbase, shod with Surly 3.8 Larry Tires. Marzocchi shocks give it 12 inches of wheel travel front and rear, and for those who like to brag about every gram they can shave off their bikes, skip reading this part. Its 120lbs.

    Have you thought about drilling out the rims?

    It is like the fat bike equivalent of the Pike's Peak Escudo custom rally car.

    Seriously dude I'd say that this one goes up to 11 but that doesn't quite do it justice.

    Wouldn't you want less weight for the Pikes uphill race? Definitely not as abusive as going down. Just a guess. Sounds like a hoot. Where is there more info on this race?
