Fat Free: Fat Bike Freeriding on a Blizzard

We have to admit, we were hesitant about the fat bike trend that’s taking the bike industry by storm (pun intended). There were definitely a few raised eyebrows in the office when we started designing and testing one. Wade Simmons was an instant convert though; “everyone thinks they’re so f@#&ing cool and serious, but it’s really just about having fun on your bike anyway.” And soon enough, the other guys stopped returning their test bikes on time. FAT FREE came out of a few days of experimenting and shredding the Blizzard in BC’s coastal mountains. It opened all our eyes to the spectacular terrain that’s available for fat biking, and it proved to us that the only limitations for these bikes are our own preconceived notions.

If it was ever even a question, the answer is yes. You can and should freeride a fat bike.

Kim Wilde – Merry Christmas

Kim Wilde and Ricky Wilde serenade passengers on the train home after the MagicFM Christmas Party. After a truly rubbish day, I got on the train home and couldn’t get a seat, a man pulled out his guitar “Oh here we go!” I thought. Then a drunken woman starts singing. Hang on a minute, I know that voice?! It really was KIM WILDE! This totally made my day. Thank you. She is an absolute legend! Merry Christmas everyone.

  1. Cant believe that miserable T**t in the green jacket on the train, c’mon where’s the party spirit there

  2. Wow. Maybe it’s the crimbo lager talking, but I got caught up in that chain reaction video, then the bit at the end with Sam Hill choking back the tears after coming off at Hafjell. He’s so neutral and business-like on the bike that you think it comes easy to him. It probably does come easy in a way, but he still puts in the hard yards.

  3. On the subject of the miserable geezer in the Kim Wilde video, just show him the video to ‘You Came’ by Kim Wilde sometime. I was only ten at the time, but things like that awake the inner man, even at that age!
