    The fatbike crew always looks like they're having a lot of fun. Unless someone has built up a dead ringer for Johnny Hair Boy's new bike shown in a recent thread, maybe Johnny Hair Boy is really not a johnny hair boy at all.

    Yes, JHB's bike! Being ridden, extremely well I might add, by Mrs. JHB!! What a gorgeous bike!!! To be honest I was underwhelmed with the redesigned 907 from pics I have seen, but this bike looks AMAZING in reality! Johnnny's build is spot on, the colour scheme throughout just pops!! First fatbike I have seen that I would seriously consider replacing old Barney Zirple with!

    That would be JHB's very lucky significant other we work completely different schedules & both get the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful bike. Thanks so much to BCD & the crew for an awesome day of riding in the beautiful town of Gravenhurst.

    AHA! It all makes perfect sense now! Awesome bike (sorry I didn't say so in the cold feet thread, ) and looks like it was a gorgeous day out!
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    I solved the cold feet problem. In addition to using his bike, I also used his shoes which allowed enough room for 3 pairs of socks & plastic bags. They were toasty warm throughout the 4hr ride John ordered a pair of the shimano winter shoes which hopefully will solve his problem.

    You can never generalize about what will or will not work for individuals re keeping hands and feet comfy. Everybody is different, learned that long ago from xc-skiing. Same 4 hr ride, I was fine in my Exustar winter shoes and 1 pair of well worn medium weight socks! Another rider in this group had riding boots with built in heaters!!

    Absolutely! I'm usually quick to overheat with the exception of my feet which tend to always be cold. Who had the boots with built in heaters?

    Doug D. I saw him adjusting them, and meant to check out brand etc. But then I was distracted by something else ( I think it was that stunning 907 ) and never thought of it again!

    OT, but I couldn't think of a better place to spread some fresh fat bike news:

    Salsa FS prototype:



    On-One Askja:



    Wow, so fighting desire to get one...

    I like the look of that Salsa Prototype. They said they are not sure if they will ever produce that model but I hope it eventually makes it to market. I have learned that my "old man" back dose not like hard tails I think I will try a suspension seat post. Every time I ride my fat bike I am blown away by how well it handles in snow. The only conditions that give me any trouble are really wet slushy snow. I had it out on my local trails yesterday and took it down a trail that has the tightest switchbacks I have ever seen and it cornered like a dream. The snow was not packed down enough to try climbing the switchbacks but I will eventually try climbing the steep stuff on this bike.

    Wait until you can get a fat bike in carbon.

    I doubt there is any gain by going FS for on-snow riding. Possibly some benefits in the off season though, and I do like this home brew version below. Well done!!

    Hmmm, I have a Maverick fork like that on a Brodie I converted to a 69er. I wonder if I could fit a wheel like that in there?

    They're definitely a lot more appealing than a 29r...

    I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong but I think the outside diameter of the fat tire makes it essentially a 29er. So you'd get all the benefits of the big wheels without having to jump on the fanboi bandwagon!

    Correct, and with the Big Fat Larry tires like Merdoff has on that 907 its probably 30" or better!

    I was on a ride this morning that included Doug D and temp was -18 C. I had my winter Exustars and I was fine. I asked him about his heated hiking boots, they are Wind River brand, look to be pretty good if you are riding flats. Doug is troubled by cold feet hence the heated boots. He seems to be very happy with them.
