    who has more than 1 fatty in their stable?

    While I have been debating on another wheelset for my Farley or just picking up another fatty, I was wondering how many have more than 1 fatty in their stable?

    We currently have 6 fatbikes ranging from 20"X4" to 26"x4.8".

    As with bikes in general, the correct number of fat bikes is n+1.

    I have two fatties - my 1st was (is) a Framed Minnesota 2.0. I put a lot of miles on that bike before buying the LaMere fat bike (kind of went all out on that one ).

    I usually maintain 1-3 but always end up riding the best one. So I should just stick to one but I get bored.

    Fatboy for snow and rides where fun is priority over speed, Bucksaw for all other rides. Seems to work pretty well for me. I have non-fat bikes, but they just collect dust, I need to sell them.

    The n+1 system is making my garage really full lately, lol. I was thinking of getting my step daughters one to share and debating on a second for myself. I have a Farley 9.8 now but was thinking about getting a fatty towards the lower end of the middle class and studding it. By the time I get a second wheelset for the Farley I would be probably more than what it would cost to buy a second bike.

    For those who have a fatty for their kids, what would you recommend for a kid 51" tall. I was thinking the Farley 24 but not sure I would want to drop that much at this time. The girls are very petite for their ages so I am sure that it would fit them for many years. Also looked into the Framed Mini-sota.

    Bucksaw for all around shredding, and a 9:Zero:7 for snow, which are my 5th & 4th fat bikes in the past 3 years.

    I'm actually down to one, surprisingly. My custom Waltworks was just always my go-to bike, so I narrowed it down to that one.

    The wife has an old blue Mukluk... so based on that we have two.

    I do have about a thousand wheelsets for both bikes - 29+, 68mm, 82mm for my Waltworks. 82mm and 100mm for the Muk.

    Fatback Corvus for snow and speed, Meriwether custom for dirt and 'techier' riding. Also have a 29+ wheelset for either. I'll probably be reducing my collection to just those two and my commuter/bar bike sometime this year.

    1 with multiple wheel sets. If you like the frame I don't see a reason to change bikes.

    Specialized Fatboy's 20 and 24's are on sale this month for $649. Much cheaper than the $1k+ for the Farley for a similar bike. Definitely try to have your daughter test ride if possible before you buy. I was dead set on getting my girl a 24", but it was way too big for her to ride. 20" was perfect.

    I started with a Fatboy, but liked it so much I ended up selling my 29er FS to buy a Bucksaw. Then the wife and daughter wanted in, so now I have n+3.

    I have a Fatboy and a new Pug SS. Wifey has a Fatboy too. She hasn't caught the single speed bug yet, although she is starting to take runs at the hills and carry a hgher gear so she can keep up on the climbs. It's fun mixing it up with different bikes, especially if you tend to ride the same trails, as we often do.

    I have two because no one is buying my Moonlander and even when it was unlocked in my garage and the door was left open no one stole it.
    You change your own flats? Support your LBS and pay them to instead.

    So where exactly is this garage?

    Currently have a Yampa and an old ti Fatback, kid has a Mukluk and wife has an alu Fatback. But there is room for a Moonlander too.

    Mukluk for winter, Bucksaw for summer. My wife rides a Pugsley, but she likes to be independent - so i'll say 2 fat bikes.

    I ended up adding 2 fatties to the stable for the girls. I had to order them so within a few days my step daughters will be fat too. I was debating on the colors but ended up getting the same color, we will just get different bottle cages to tell which one is which. My better half doesn't know yet but it came out of my piggy bank. Now gotta figure out how to talk her into a fatty.

    I bought an aluminium salsa beargrease a couple of years ago when I was off work with a broken ankle. I had a bit to much internet time and found a local bike shop with one in stock. I pursuaded my wife to drive me there so I could take a look. (I was in a cast and could not drive) sat on the bike, and got out my credit card. How could you not buy a bike this cool?

    A week later, I rode the bike for the first time and loved it. A few months later and when I saw (online) a Borealis Echo I knew that I needed carbon and suspension. I sold my Porsche 911 and got one.

    I kept the beargrease and my daughter borrows it occasionally. I have it set up as a night bike and have not long been back from 8 miles of nighttime off road.

    I love the simplicity of the beargrease and the speed of the echo

    I'm n-1 as of yesterday
    Nice story however

    I've been offering a riding buddy of mine a chance to ride fat, and he accepted my invitation on account of our first real snow fall. As we were heading off another fat buddy remarked that I had that particular bike listed. Well we popped down a .5 miles trail and my buddy makes me a fair offer. So he's n + 1, I'm n - 1, but I may just put a pair of fat shoes on on the Echo (purchased as a 29 plus and then the snow came!!)

    I have a pugsley and a moonlander. I don't really need two but I got a screaming deal on the moonie frame. It is nice having 2 fat bikes but the moonlander does feel like overkill 99% of the time. My pugs is my mtn bike and feels like a normal tire compared to the moonlander. I think it might be a different on a bigger frame but I don't like the way 29+ or 4.8'' tires handle on a small frame although the 4.8'' are very nice in the snow.

    I would consolidate to an ice cream truck if it wasn't for the press fit BB.

    Just a Bucksaw right now. Once I find a house to solve the N+1 dilemma I will probably get another.
