    Fat bikes in Boise?

    Does anyone ride fat bikes around Boise? I've only seen one on the trails in the past year. Does any shop demo them? I would like to ride one before dropping 2k on one.

    Hey Howley,
    Check out vibecycles.com for the bamboo fat bike and theres more photos on facebook I made it for this years NAHBS show, and just finished an aluminum frame and working on a steel frame. the fat bike interest is hitting Boise and growing.

    Meridian had the Mukluk at the Nampa CX race. They are sponsoring another upcoming race. Maybe will have it there too.

    I know a few guys that have pugsleys. Never ridden one myself.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!

    I have a Pugsley. Need to get a headset (stole the one off the Pugs for my 'cross bike...) and do a couple of other little things, but you're welcome to give it a shot.
    It's an 18".

    Could I give the Pugs a shot when it we have some snow? I would LOVE to ride a fattie in the snow. I was going to head to Driggs this weekend but they don't have snow to ride on
