Got into a conversation with bedmaker the other day re fat bikes and it got me thinking....
Basically, as I understand it, those of us who ride HT's, amongst other things, like them because they keep it real, usually with steel! HT's might not be a fast down the bumpy stuff as a good FS but the buzz is awesome and they 'theoretically' make me a better, more skilful rider.
Conversely, I've 'observed' it being said that those of us who ride FS bikes are something labelled as cheating in that they make the trails easier to ride and go fast on.
Are fat bikes therefore 'cheating' in the same way?
