Although too long for most of non-lawyer types (he he), thanks for the well written article. Living just south of the Canadian border, the laws are vastly different. It'd be very informative to compare liability laws in America. Thanks again.
Some things I've learned if it's any help:
For snow primarily:
-Racing bike: Essentially only good at perfectly groomed snow due to geometry and skinnier tires with lesser tread. Light weight. Rigid seatpost usually....
Just to clarify, when you said you greased all mating surfaces, does that include literally everything? I've had creaks from BB spacers rubbing against things. So if you haven't, grease everything that...
I've been running this post on my trail bike and the fatty with ZERO problems. 5-100 degrees F, mud, fine dust, etc. Don't waste your $ on the factory version and run the Wolf Tooth remote instead of the Fox.
Thank you for validating what a surprisingly large number of fat riders don't understand: LOW PSI !!! I've had countless peeps tell me my tires are flat and they scoff when I tell them I'm running 1.5-2psi.
I dig that Singletracks covers this kind of stuff. If you haven't tried it, phat biking is a blast. More than any other mtb genre, the fatties are all about goofing off. No goals about miles, heart rate, total vert, whatever. Just plain fun.
Hmmm. I'll run anywhere between 1.5-4 psi depending on conditions.
1.5-2.5 = very poor traction/adventure fat biking (the best kind imo)
3-4 = groomed/packed trails.
For reference, I'm on a fully rigid bike, weigh ~230...
