    New Bike Day! 2020 Trek Farely 7

    Last year about this time I picked up a barely used 2018 Viper Red Farley 7
    (was a demo at the LBS marked down by $1200, so I couldn't resist the deal of the year)

    When my Girl Friend came along for her first Fat Bike ride last weekend,
    I put her on my heavy Schwinn Biggity (47 pound) 6 speed turd, and to my surprise, she still had a really great time.

    No complaints until the end of the ride when I told her to try my Farely and she was like "Wow! No wonder you were kickin' my Arse!"
    I told her the right bike makes all the difference in the world, so she won't give it back now

    No Problemo! I wanted an excuse to upgrade to the new Eagle SRAM 12 speed
    BTW, unless you get the Large (19.5") the rear tire drops to a Gnarwhal 27.5 x 3.8
    (Both mine are Large with 27.5 x 4.5's)

    LBS just doing dealer prep and tubeless conversion as I type...

    I've been sick AF since I picked mine up,
    ...so haven't even been out for a good rip yet



    I cant wait to try that Big 50 tooth gear on a hill climb



    New pedals should arrive from amazon later today along with another set of LED lights.
    Picked up two more baggies of carbide studs, in case Winter decides to show up early this year.

    Got a new to me 9.6 put together today. Used bike but I can't find a single mark on it. Matte Olive Gray is stunning.
