    Send Jon (Magnum357) a PM and see if he responds. I know he is in sparks but think he works in Reno so would be up for a ride (last I knew he was training for next years Death Ride).

    Haha! I think our vibrant colors just blew away last week! Phatty, from what you wrote in another thread, I have the impression that you`re serious about the fat biking thing. Do you ride skinny also? Personally, I hate sand and mud, but I`m only 45 minutes of (hard-surface) pedalling from you, and do occasionally ride midweek mornings or evenings.

    I'm Reno as well! I think I've just about put the mountain bikes away for the winter, but I'd always be down for a road ride somewhere as long as the weather isn't too shitty.

    *Except for the next few weeks, because my immune system kinda hates me.
    I've made some bad decisions like taking the gears off my bike. So here's the warning: Do not as I say, nor as I do.

    I've got a 2.35" tire on the front of my hardtail... That's fat, right?

    Hmmm.... where do my 20 X 2.0 Big Apples fall in the fat heirarchy? I hope they rate for something because my "skinnies" don`t really qualify as official skinnies at 32mm!

    Erik, your profile says "Bay Area". Did you recently move up from there?

    Kinda, yeah. I go to school at UNR so I kinda split my time between here and there. Here for the school year, there during summer.

    I was born in Redwood City, but have been in Reno since kindergarten, so I consider myself a naturalized Nevadan.
