Fat Bikes

I thought some of you fat bike enthusiasts might enjoy this...
"Fat Bikes Are Taking Over the World. And We Love It." That's the headline to a link posted at Outside online for the trailer of "Off the Beaten Path," a film "that explores how fatties are enabling cyclists to ride places they've never ridden before." The footage is stunning; the riders, extremely skilled. They perform wheelies and zip through and over snowfields, rocks, and sand, along with riding in some places maybe they shouldn't be, like wings of a wrecked airplane and the walls of a decaying building. (Note: If you have trouble loading the video, as we did, click on the "First Tracks Productions" link and you'll be whisked right to it.)
The opening photo alone makes tapping into the following site worthwhile. The piece focuses on the inaugural Fat Bike World Championships, which happened in late January in Crested Butte, Colorado.

It's from Adventure Cycling's monthly "Bike Bits" newsletter.

Almost bought one of these last year before I bought my current bike. I may need to get one for next season, this no riding for 5-6 months of the year is getting to me!
Cool link!
