    i'm still excited to get a fat bike, but i've felt that way since the first time i saw a pugsly in dirt rag 5 years ago. hopefully with the influx of new fatties, the used market will pick up a bit and i can get something on the cheap...

    Carbon RaceFace crank with direct mount and XX1 drivetrain are pretty intriguing to me, and the prospect of front suspension. Both look to be pretty pricey, though. That said, both fatbikes are pretty well squared away at the moment, so I'll stand pat until something irresistable comes out.

    About time someone did a removable axle (with amazingly length options), now if Raceface can do an alloy version of their new crank (as much as I love carbon) I think I'd rather spend less thanks.

    The new 190mm rear end bikes, so nearly ready to pull the trigger on a small 9:Zero:7 but want to see when weight difference between the alloy and carbon versions first.

    And for my daughter the soon to be released OnOne baby fat, I just hope it's got light wheels not the heavy double wall 24" Marge`s!

    Right now I am 100% content with what I have. RD and Nates for winter, RD and Hudu, Knard to for summer.

    My ideal would be CS BUD/LOU for winter, but not a snowballs-chance-in hell that is going to happen any time soon...as that would mean a 190mm 9ZERO7 frame.

    I need to invest in warm cloths for the little man, so he can come with me when momma and the new little one need some time away from the noisy boys.

    Any ideas on sled setups?

    My thoughts exactly!

    Seems like I saw that both the Spesh and Fatback tires are a little smaller than the 4.8's... might be able to squeeze 'em on some of the older bikes a little easier.

    How about we just keep it simple and say that it would be awesome if anything was actually in stock after mid november.

    Honestly, that would be awesome. I don't care about any of the other stuff, I just want tires in stock all year. Ditto rims.

    I'm waiting impatiently for my black ano 190mm 907 frame.
    I even more so wish the 190mm hubs were available now so I could lace up the wheels.

    The "suspension fork of many names" looks intriguing. However, I'm more likely to buy a new wheelset with Hope Fatsno hubs and some purdie rims in 80mm.

    Since it hasn't been mentioned, y'all know that Schmidt makes their SON dyno hubs available in 135mm now?

    I am still excited about my recent Pugsley purchase. Only new stuff I will likely be buying for that will be in the racks category. Want to do some bikepacking

    I'm really curious to see the new Rock Shox fat fork but realistically the only big purchase I am planning for the fall/winter is a Dirt Wizard 29" (which probably won't be available for a while anyway).

    I had the ski kit for my Chariot, it worked reasonably well except that the big fat tires didn't clear the towing arm by quite as much as narrow tires. You wouldn't want to tow your kid on an epic ride, but they are great when conditions are good and there is snow cover. I have also towed a kick sled which works reasonably.

    I am excited about the Baby Fat, I need to get the measurements of it to see if my little one can ride it. She would really like to go winter bikepacking with her dad. While I probably won't buy one, the suspension forks do look like a good addition to the mix.

    If you come up with a sled idea let me know. I'm thinking the same thing. I'm thinking about converting a burley Bee.

    Well, since I sold my Pugsley in March to help fund a carbon Beargrease I'd have to say I'm waiting for that bike to show up. I'm not a racer but I might just enter a few due to owning this over the top beast! Pretty much decided on the X9 build but that XX1 looks sick, although way expensive.

    No sign of it at the Euro Bike show. I'm not feeling like that bodes well for a release this season, but it's possible RS wants to blow their load at Interbike.

    If we don't hear about it Sept 16-17 than we are waiting another year.

    Probably not one product, more the mainstreaming of fatbikes, so we're going to get a wider choice of parts.

    Nothing really...

    Pugsley frameset ticks all the boxes for a multi purpose fatbike that takes all kinds of hubs etc for myself who rides everything on a fatbike with 4" and 29+,
    and i have the Moonlander for the beach/ low tide rock riding and will be ideal if we ever get another Artic conditions winter of a few years back, and don`t see anything new coming out that is so radical and better preforming to sell and buy at a huge outlay any other bikes...

    Loads of stuff like the carbon beargrease is i am sure an awesome bike for snow racers etc, but for regular riders there is just the usual mainstream bike market jumping on the band wagon to cash in on a new niche and they come with some or other marketing bull, for the UK it is `Trail specific` whatever that means ...

    Just remember Specialized, who are about to launch a fatbike - and made Eric Parsons change his company name of bikepacking bags...
    plan it...build it....ride it...love it....

    Google 'pulk', there are plenty of DIY ideas around or you can just buy one. It would likely make sense to modify it to attach to the bike as apposed to your waist although I suppose either would work.
