    Maybe...I haven't ridden Lake Hope before and I just finished putting together the fatbike last night. Combining the two new things together makes me a little nervous.

    No Worries! Lake Hope is rolling and beautiful! Nothing to worry about.

    Come on down and lets christen that new bike on some amazing single track.

    OK. I'm going to take it out on an around town social ride tomorrow and if everything seems to be functioning OK I will probably be there.

    Would love to meet up (Mukluk 2 just arrived on Monday), but the wife made me promise to wait until Xmas before I can take it out. Keep me on your list for future rides (live in Columbus).

    We need to start a Ohio Fatbike FaceBook page or website. I got 5 guys here in Cincinnati that roll fatties. I would love to come up tomorrow but I'm currently helping the local MTB club finish a 4 mile trail. Here is my pugs loaded down for a trailday.
    Post pics of the ride at Lake Hope thats a kickass trail.

    Well...looks like the fatties are just crawlin' outta the woodwork. Good to see. Hope a few more can meet on Sunday's 10am ride at Hope, but if not...

    We're (loosely) planning a winter ride in mid-January at Lake Hope. Rent a big cabin. Make a fire. Ride the fatness. Beer. Fire. More Fatness. Interested?

    Doh, I' love to go. But alas, I have finals next week and they need all my attention. Haven't done many chores around the house, so if I went riding my wife would skillfully dispose of me.

    Oh btw, I'm located in Brunswick, OH and have a built Pugsley.

    Bummer! Looks like I missed out!

    If a Canuck can make the trip, you cool with that?
    Here's my crummy, slow-going blog The Slow Spoke if you're interested.
