Pretty stoked about this new addition! I sold off a Giant Trance X2 and found the 2012 Fatback on Craigslist.
Came with Uma 70mm rims and Surly 100mm Clown Shoes with 45North studded tires. Already looking forward to next winter!
Been working a lot and have only had time for two rides, one was 28 miles mostly on dirt single-track. First thoughts are love at first ride. It is a shock going from years of full suspension to NO suspension except for those big fat tires, but I had a ton of fun. It climbs like a goat and rolls over small boulders. I played with several different tire pressures and it does make a big difference.
I'm planning on riding the Colorado Trail this September and so far this is the bike that I'm taking. I'll know more after doing many more miles on it this summer.
Looking forward to many miles and adventures on the Fatback.
