Roadie... sort of

In the last post my Wildfire was up for sale. I am super excited the bike went to someone local who I know will enjoy it as much as me and take care of it too.  Our fatbike community is growing!

I was debating to write an excerpt on what the Wildfire meant to me and all we went through.  Just then I saw Jill Homer sold her Pugsley, took her sentiments and wrote a surprisingly similar epitaph, though much better than I ever could, for her own bike.  I concur with her thoughts.

That leaves me with only a road bike, my GT carbon.  Oh what fun to go 20 mph again.   I can't help feel a little like this though (the funniest video ever).

And here's what is in the works... a photo of the new fatback in process by Master P.

Fatbike Anyone?

It's weird, I feel like I'm cheating on my bike.  I am selling the wildfire, shhhh don't tell her.  I wouldn't be completely upset if I kept her but it should go to a good home so I get my new younger better looking fatty all to myself- The Fatback.  Here are the specifics:


1)    Wildfire aluminum 17" frame, 2008.
2)      New light wheelset (70 mm) made last year by Speedway.
3)      Xtra Wheelset Large Marge (65 mm).
4)      Phil wood bottom bracket with middleburn cranks
5)      SRAM X9 rear derailler, shifters
6)      Drive drain (RaceFace) replaced right before this years race.
7)    Relevate Designs frame bag
8)      Rear Old Man Mountain rack.
9)      Carbon handlebars
10)   WTB hubs on both wheelsets.
