It was a big week in FatBike land!!
Surly bikes laid the smack down on the FatBike world with their Moonlander, the Black Ops Pug (which I really dig), and a bunch of new rubber.
Two new sets of rims. The 100mm Clownshoes. And the 65mm light large marge. That just sounds funny to me, then again, it's Surly, so I suppose it's meant to be funny!!? The Mr. Whirly crank off-set double something or other.
Along with other offerings for the non FatBike crowd.
After having a 1/2 day Thursday and all day Friday off of work; ah having metal shavings in ones eyes does suck as bad as it sounds!!! I had time to read and look at pictures of all Surly's offerings. Be it with limited vision ;) but just the same; I only saw the Nate 3.8 as something that interested me.
I already have a Pugs; so the Blacks Ops is out of the question, the Moonlander doesn't interest me, I like my granny and other gears to much to slap on the Clownshoes, and in my application of my Pugs the Black Floyd's would be a waste of my hard earned cash and time. The light large marge, na I want the wider younger brother Rolling D's thank you. The BFL belong on the Moonlander.
That leaves me with only the Nates to long for.
Maybe I'm settling, or maybe I'm just itching to see my young ones on their Mukluks next to me on the dark time trails??? Either way, more choice for us FatBikers can be a good thing in the long run!!! Anyway, my heart is still set on a Ti FatBack!!!! Call me crazy, but so be it!! ;))
