    Yeah the plus thing was starting to get me a little cranky to the point where I was going to leave for the summer. Now ya'all are stuck with me a little while longer

    problem is we collect them and no one reads them. At one time we got up to 6 or 7 so gomez consolidated them. Getting crowded up there again. Sux on a small mobile screen.

    I'm a whiner. You know this. I'll try to behave
    Yep, playing clean and reorganize this week, must be Spring!

    No need to behave, if no one says anything, nothing gets better.

    Besides, a sticky or two gives shamelessly unresearched threads about which $600 bike to buy, or that they just found, a place to go without resorting to a "cheap fatty" subforum!

    You moving the Surly KramPug thread then?
    29+ is a Fatbike in my books, its a lower pressure bigger volume tyre than a regular MTB tyre, add the formula of a Fatbike with the added advantage of taking a 29+ wheelset and for myself and others that removes the need to own a rigid 29er anymore,
    A lot of folks cannot afford 2 bling bikes but can combine 2 in 1 with this option,

    So that concept is excluded on here?
    plan it...build it....ride it...love it....

    No, because it's relevant to a fat bike(r). It's a usage of a fatbike frame. Therefore, at least to me, makes perfect sense to leave it here.

    That said, haven't looked, did it move??

    I would argue though, as I tell anyone at the shop, + bikes are not fatbikes, at all. No way, no how. They suck comparatively in true fat bike conditions, so anyone thinking they can buy that, and have it do dual duty, is going to be sadly mistaken. The Krampug concept though? That rocks. Two wheelsets, one frame, happy all year.

    Don't get me wrong, I love mine, pretty much my go to bike all the rest of the year....

    Minitrail, I agree, most folks ignore the stickies. Not that I can change city hall, but I hope by pushing like minded new threads into them, we can ease congestion, and reduce the overall ennui that's been present here these last several months. Bear with me, I hear you!

    THIS
    With the classic info threads, like Tubeless Tuesday, etc..
    The threads that already have the info that that newbie's keep making new threads to ask for because the threads they need have dropped off the first page.

    I'd think that the existing sticky, Fatbike Info is the obvious choice for this.
