Global Fat Bike Day

 Back in Black

The weather out was very pleasant and overcast.  This made for a great day of riding and today I rode on the Surly Pugsley Neck Romancer and what a bike.  First and foremost I have to give big ups to The Bike Shoppe for allowing me to enjoy the ride on a Fat Bike.

Thank you!

There were a whole slew of Fat Bikes at the Ogden event.  Mine is on top with a couple of Surly's and the boys with 9zero7 from

On the Bonneville Shoreline Trail just up from 12th street after the second climb and I am just starting to really enjoy the ride of the Neck Romancer.  I did not have to get out of the saddle in the steeps because this bike had great traction and the tire size allowed it to roll over most obstacles.  The only issue I had was rocks in a switchback, the handling was amazing and the ride was so cushioned that it did not need suspension.

The best part of the ride is the views we see from the trail.  The ride has been plush so far and the traction is amazing, have not had a single slip, such a clean run. A quarter of the way through the ride and everything has been so amazing.

Then the ride came to an end and we had quite the crew avail for an op at the end.  After riding for a couple of hours my hands were still good and did not feel like a non-suspended bike.  A great ride!  Thank you to everyone who was a part of the Global Fat Bike Day event at Rainbow Gardens in Ogden.  Thank you to The Bike Shoppe for the use of a demo Surly, you guys rock!

The long is that I need to get my hands on these bikes a few more times and different manufacture and model.  The short, try one of these bikes and you will be sold.  We will let you know when there will be a demo on the snow and after talking to the guys at I know there will be many a chance to get on one of these amazing bikes.
