Specialized Fatboy / Specialized Fatboy Rear Hub Failure Watch
« on: June 28, 2015, 06:22:04 PM »
I have been reading about a lot of rear hub failures on the Specialized Fatboy's. I just got a new Fatboy Pro. I took a vid of before and after to capture the sound of the hub freewheeling to try to see if the sound changes over time. I guess I have too much time on my hands :D

Anyway, here it is new...

Someone posted on facebook what he says are 2016 Farley pics. 27.5 x 4" tires it seems. Who knows if they really are the 2016 designs but it is interesting regardless...

Other Fat Bike Mfrs / Framed Bikes

Framed bikes has multiple Fatbike options for sale online or through local dealers.

- Framed Minnesota
- Framed Alaskan (Alloy)
- Framed Alaskan (Carbon)

The bikes look good. They appear to be a great, cost effective option for a fatbike.

...a very cool video I found posted on their homepage. The first two clips rock...

According to this article you will lose 2% of your air pressure with every 10 degree F drop in temperature.

If you inflate your fatbike tires in your house (~65 degrees F) and ride outside (~25 degrees F) you will loose about 8% of your air pressure.

So if you have 10 lbs of pressure when inflated you will have 9.2 lbs when you get outside.

Some deep thoughts to keep in mind. :D

Ride Reports, Pics And Videos / Trek Farley Ride At Ray's MTB
« on: January 05, 2015, 08:14:29 PM »

I test ride a Farley yesterday at Rays Milwaukee. Unfortunately the bike was a small and I ride large.

My foot kept contacting the front wheel probably because it was too small and I have size 12 feet. :O

Regardless I had a blast riding it around Rays. Rays has Trek test bikes there you can take out for free for 15 mins. No jump lines tho! :D

Ride Reports, Pics And Videos / Salsa Bucksaw Review | Pink Bike
« on: January 05, 2015, 05:15:32 PM »
Pinkbike has a downhill / enduro bias so keep that in mind. Great Salsa Bucksaw review by Mike Levy...

Pinkbike's Take:

bigquotes   I had more fun on the Bucksaw than on any other bike I've ridden in the last few years, which says a lot given that I've been lucky enough to ride some pretty amazing machines in that time. That fact reinforces my belief that fun has nothing to do with being on the latest race-winning enduro machine, whatever wheel size is getting the most coverage, or the low weight of your carbon fiber bike that costs three times as much as my car. That said, I don't think that the Bucksaw would ever be the only bike in my garage, simply because it's still relatively slow and ungainly compared to a traditional mountain bike. It does make complete sense as an extremely entertaining second or third ride in your stable, though, especially if you like to loosen up and just focus on having fun, which is exactly why the majority of us ride, isn't it? - Mike Levy
