    Idea! Brilliant idea? Or maybe not.

    I was watching some specials on Everest the past few days, and I was thinking....would you be able to cut the trip to the summit by riding a fatbike part of the way? I realize that once you get to the steps at the top, a bike wouldn't be useable anymore, but what about getting to the higher base camps on a fatbike. Or maybe, people could use a fatbike to get back down - maybe it would cut the time substantially and save lives. Just my brilliant of the day.

    I did it, it was rad. Had my drums in my backpack and played a solo at the summit.
