I think you know MY Answer. Hell Yes!

In the last two years owning a Fat Bike has given me to opportunity to Ride all year round. I have NOT had to ride a trainer this Winter at all.

Is it easy to ride? Hell No. It takes work to pedal those big tires.

Does it go fast? Hell No. But I don't need to be riding 20mph in 17 degree temps either.

Ok... I'll take the 'Hell Nos" back becuase Fat Bikes ARE actually EASY ride. They soak up the bumps and pretty much go over everything.

I won't go into too much more details, but we love the freedom a Fat Bike offers both in the Winter, Summer and those other two seasons...

We definiltey recommend a set of nice Winter boote, Ski goggles and Pogies for the best experience!

Fat Bike = Adventure
