    Thanks for the link.
    The guy sounds like just another bike snob to me but what do I know as I'm just a "loser", "geezer" who likes to ride a fatty.

    Straight up! They never give any attention to us measly fat bikers whatsoever. But they cannot deny what's comin'. Take the poll at the end.

    Sound like a bunch of one-eyed W-anchors. There's much more to cycling than racing.

    "I want to be the fatbike Word Champion" - said no mountain bike racer ever.

    Unless he was a really good speller in grade school.

    The guy is right though. Next thing you know they'll be racing them up in Alaska, on the snow.

    Or even in Scotland in January. Forgive the unseasonable lack of snow...

    I liked this quote....Fatbike racing isn't about rogue mountain bikers popping toads and skidding up endangered habitat.
    I kinda like toad popping but then again I like Cat Juggling too....

    The bike is never to heavy, you are just to WEAK!

    The article had some interesting things in it. I didn't know Specialized made a carbon fat bike, for one. And just imagine having a multi-day race where you have to go to checkpoints and they don't care what trail you take to get there. I think that could catch on.

    Um, no, actually, I won't admit it.

    Racing is something I have never done, will never do, and do not even consider when I throw a leg over whatever style bike I'm riding.

    The comments do bear out what I've always thought about most of their readership though, groms whose bodies growth outpaced their brains....

    And of course their survey never even considered that someone may own more than one fatbike...

    Anyone read the comments below from Pinkbike members? Not much love for Fat bikes at all, more like a flat out hatred?
