- Salsa Beargrease carbon fattie ready for winter!!
First ride report… I set the tyres to about 15psi and went for a ride…
That bike is remarkable. I’ve never ridden a fatbike before and so it took a little getting used to. I’m quite used to riding rigid but that thing is something else entirely. You have to totally readjust how you attack trails and just forget about any sort of line choice. The tyres have so much momentum that you just point it at things and pedal. Riding through the fairly sloppy bits in Swinley you just keep pedalling and it plows on through. Roots? No problem, even soaking wet off camber ones. The tyres just float over everything.
The frame is really stiff – when you stand up and give it the beans there is no flex at all – you can feel you are just going forwards rather than flexing about.
Only downside? Cleaning it took ages as everything is so large.
Just need some new brake pads now! Oh, and some snow.
