Sorry.  Your post brings an expensive minded nightmare (that we've all pondered) back to real time.  Glad you didn't suffer a bad crash. Rode the GDMBR on my rigid fatbike w/3" wide rubber...

replied to What bike rack do you use?
 
Agree with the 1Upusa, two bike rack with fatbike modification on both...added some Lexan shields on one so during winter the rotors and spokes don't become coated in ice and frozen grime. ...
Rode N-S on the GDMBR (supported, I'm old) from Canmore to Antelope Wells last summer.  The legendary descent down Fleecer Ridge (south of Butte) terminates at, reportedly, 37%. Stupidly, one other rider...

No matter how careful, particular and how you'll slice it...you'll be buying more and changing/upgrading components/gear very soon.  Seek out some buddies who will let you ride theirs (AND demo at the...

Helmet???  Most definitely. Retrospectly, the only time that I, knowingly, benefitted by one (other than a few minor tree branch clunks) was when I was walking my mtb across a short patch of...

Fatback Corvus is available in a 14" frame.  Their fatbike frames may be most beautiful ones currently on the market and they will ship out of Bend, OR. (nearly purchased one of...

Like Jeff Barber said, tough to nail down and it's all relative. Indeed historical vs. current objective metrics such as weight, BMI, resting pulse, % body fat may be good to compare...tho' the...
resuming the head to head competition with the 2 big boy OEMs (& the multitudes of after market options) will benefit every 1X luver (never SRAM folks, never Shimano folks & riders like me w/ SRAM drivetrain, Shimano brakes) on the price points & future refinements.

Hey, thanks.
Agree with so many of the comment posters and the essence of the article (uni-quiver). Purchased a Mukluk carbon frame (w/ essential mounts) 1 wk ago to build my 3rd fatbike for snow, summer and solo tours. Previously owned a 1st gen Mukluk and then (now) a carbon fiber beargrease 1X11 that I just rode…

Nice. Sold my Moots YBB after (first bought 1st gen Mukluk out of a rental pool) after I bought my Salsa Beargrease (now my only mtb for ridin' 52 wks of the year). Just love the handling and simplicity of riding a rigid fatty (buddies say I could be the poster child for fatbikes....child? Hell,…

Nice upgrade but not sure it seems as sweet as a 1upusa (can carry road, FS mtbs, kid bikes and fatty with 4" wide studs/3" summer rubber) and all aluminum (fittings-hardware).
