Admittedly, I am a novice to fat biking. While the Mukluk looks to be a stellar bike, I am searching for more of an entry-level set-up. The Framed Minnesota, which I test rode in Old Forge, looks to be more my speed. Plus, they designed a fatbike specifically for women with a lower standover and shortened crank length.That's where I went with my mountain bike and my knees and back still thank me to this day.

Took a look and the frame is too large, but thanks so much for the heads-up. Appreciate it.

ADK123 you should find one on Amazon.com if it pleases you

looking forward to some winter bike trips... maybe across the pond. have done a few november trips here in VT, and just this weekend did a december overnight to a lean to on the 'chubby' bike, my krampus.

could have used the fatbike for a section of it. and will definitely get back when it is colder and we have more snow. pushed the bike about 5 miles this trip. and will get to the campground via 8-10 or even 20-30 miles of snowmobile trails.

have a 0dF down bag on the way, will make my winter season on skis and bike that much more comfortable. (i've been down into the low 20s in my current 30dF down bag...)

Looks like you could use some fenders on the 29er

Bmike-vt did you have any issues mounting the 29 x 3 tires on your 29er wheels or did you need to buy different wheels? Did the tires clear your chain stays? Send a pic of your tire clearance on the rear chain stays if you can.

I have a Fisher X Caliber 2008 29er and was wondering if the tires would mount my rims. I have about 3/8 clearance on each side of the rear chain stays running a 2.3 tire now.

My bike is a Surly Krampus.
Designed for the big tires from the ground up.
