    Anybody on a Rhino?

    I'm planning to buy a Fatback Rhino. Curious if anybody out there is riding one yet and what their general impressions are? What build did you go with? Any time on the snow yet? Tried any different tires, clearance on the rear good?

    Yes, but I plan to ride it in a normal fashion. I do not have his skills.

    That's cause you don't have a Rhino!!!! Rhino will make you a better trials rider, fact.

    I've seen quite a few of them up here in Anchorage. Every single rider I've seen on them, so far, was doing backflips, nose wheelies and bunnyhopping moose.

    Kidding aside, I have actually seen quite a few people on them, riding them like people ride bikes.

    That's weird, I always thought the bike makes the rider. Maybe they needed dropper posts or something.

    Bike may not make the rider, but it can certainly make the rider perform better.

    So is Smage the only person who has one? I'm ordering one, I was just curious what people who had ridden them thought.

    Quite happy with the bike. Got mine with a Bluto, GX1 4 season and DT wheel upgrade which came with 4.8 liteskin Jumbo Jims. I've been running it with the chainstays full short which measures 17.3, going to try them full long just to see how it rides.
