    I know what my next MTB will be...

    So, while like a dork I dont have a picture of it and should have taken some when i had the chance, i saw an amazing bike this weekend ridden by Sherwood. I have toyed with the idea of a fatbike and when seeing Sherwood's in person...i want one now, no, i "need" one. I have not bought a MTB since 2011 which is very odd for me so i may break the streak soon

    p.s. El Salt...any pics you took by any chance?

    I'm with you, Fo. I'm leaning toward eventually building up an El G. around 29+ wheels.

    This El Gordo looks pretty bad ass...

    I also read in the Fat Bike Forum there is a FS fat bike in the works from Ventana.

    So it's this bike, except he switched out the Salsa Fork for the Rockshox Bluto . I have short bursts of video of him riding by me that I haven't had time to edit yet.

    Shhhh... Don't tell Sinyard. Plus, it will take Speshy another 3 years before they jump on the 29+ bandwagon. And 2 years after they state that there is no market for 29+ bikes.

    too bad for you Speshy has not declared the drive train irrelevant for if they did your bike would have been flawless this weekend...except for the overdone Speshy graphics which beg for spinner hubcaps

    Phat Bikes are fad just like 650B and 29er wheels Just wait a year for people to realize that. Then you can pick one up really cheap.
