- If Tonka made bikes (new build)
I find it alright, i run 9psi in the back and 8 at front, but the Mukluk has a less “trail” more “snow” geometry than the On One Fatty, so guess that makes a difference, the head angle is steeper and i think that helps the slow speed turning (but i’m no expert at all!)
And it is Wells, i live just down the road and it is great on a fat bike, strange though before the storms a few months back there were big 30ft high dunes, they have all but been washed away, many of the beach huts are either damaged or brand new. There is one for sale at £60k and I can’t help but think that is a lot of cash for a shed on stilts that could get washed away!Posted 4 years ago40mpgSubscriber
Looks great – what rims are those, I’m guessing the On-One rims and self drilled?
I get some frankly dangerous self-steer with anything under 7 or 8 psi with the same fork on my on-one Fatty
I get this with On-One forks on my fatty, but fine over 9psi on front. Not a problem as long as you are expecting it!Posted 4 years ago
Posted this previously on the UK Fat Bikes Forum, but thought it might be of interest to a few on here. Built this having found a very cheap frame in the Jan. sales at Billys.
2012 Mukluk with Carver carbon forks, Hope hubs built on Robbson rims with Knard tyres, trying it at the moment with 1×10 and One Up adaptor, but have the bits to fit a granny ring if needed. Cranks are £18 ebay bargain Raceface Diabolous with black anodizing stripped off using Oven Pride. Wheels were built by Andy of this parish and a grand job he did to, brings a smile to my face everytime I ride it (or just look at it!)
I know that there are some that knock fat bikes as a novelty, but I live in North Norfolk, there is little decent MTBing, but what we do have is endless beaches.

Rims are from this company in Germany (about £35 each from memory)
Built onto Hope Fatsno hubs and drilled by the mate that built them.
Weight is about 31.8ibs at present, the cranks are just about the heaviest you can get, but i need to do it tubeless which should knock about another pound off.
I had a go on a Caribou as well at LBS and this feels a few pounds lighter.Posted 4 years ago
Now if only i’d known Tonka made fat full sus bikes! Reckon they could scale one up for this portly gent?
