I tested one once and was very impressed. Would love to add one to my fleet. It's amazing how fast it feels given how much we all bicker about tire grams.

Where do you keep all these bikes?

I rode Tom's briefly and it was awesome! Good luck with it!

Hard to believe that these bikes aren't popular in Westchester :?
I just don't see them anywhere on the trails.

Ross-, very stable feel, rolls over everything like a 29er maybe better
people that aren't in the know tend to step aside when you approach with a WTF look on their face :twisted:

just shy of 32lbs,that's with the heavy Surly tubes.
it's set up tubeless with stans tape, just need to get the valve stems
will be sub 30 when i'm done,that's light for a fatbike.

Some guy had a 9:zero:7 at the Sprain BBQ fest a few weeks ago. Looked pretty cool. He was getting along on the trails just fine. I also saw a few upstate at the place I ride when I visit the in-laws. Very sandy on that particular spot and he was chugging along nicely.

If you guys are looking for a bling bike or bling fatbike, check out this......I ride with this guy and his bikes are certainly unique. If you're worried they won't hold up, he's been riding his designs on the local PA trails (translate - 4.5 miles of pure rock gardens) with no problems. Totally custom, totally affordable.
