Yorlin they do tried it out, no need for a packraft
As Mantastic says Nates make em go anywhere,
let the haterz be haterz i say, who would wanna go aride with folk like that anyway?
I don`t fit the ideal owner then as im 42 and ride daily to work/shops/pub and ride easily over 100 miles offroad on fatbikes weekly. usually catching and waiting on MTBs on group rides and often pass road bikes on my Pugsley with its 29+ wheelset
Pinewood sums up the typical STW cynical type on here who has not ridden one properly away from where a regular MTB size tyre would struggle. If you dont like tham then piss off onto another thread and troll on there and don
t piss on the OTs post
lee170 get in touch with someone local who has one and go for a ride on one you will find an owner local to you on the UK Fatbike Forum
I've also ridden it on beaches a bit, which is novel,
but you can't get away from the fact that a beach is a big wide flat area so not that much fun for its own sake.
Come up to East Lothians coast if you think it is all flat and boring, How hard a work out would you like
Hopefully the mainstream MTB manufacturers who are jumping on something different to cash in on along with the press will move on and leave us who enjoy them to keep on rolling.
Each to their own, but STW is classic for small minded comments when they have not really tried out something.
Put you mouth where your riding skills are, i have two spare Pugsleys, come up and try them, i live 25 minutes by train from Edinburgh to North Berwick, you will have your eyes opened by what and where these bikes can be ridden, it is not a MTB and not a replacement for an MTB, but opens a new riding area and real fun. Oh you will need to buy the ice cream after though...
