    Lift-accessed downhill on a fatbike

    Decided to push the Pugs a bit at Vail, Colorados downhill trails. The verdict? The Pugs is solid and a very capable bike!

    I went to Bryce Bike/Ski resort in Shenandoah, Va the last two Saturdays. I used my Vertigo fat bike both times, but the first time I went, I had my fat Lefty on. The second time, I had my rigid fork on. No doubt I could ride faster and in better control with the Lefty.

    I had a friend try my bike on one of his runs, and he really liked the tenacious grip that the Surly Nates gave him.

    Drevil,

    Awesome! I'm running 120TPI Nates setup tubeless and am in love with grip! Would have been nice to try some suspension for comparisons sake, but I can't complain. The bike just shreds.

    Very cool vids!
    I have to agree, front suspension makes a huge difference when going through the rough stuff, takes the fatbike to a whole new level.
