Wound a fat bike be suitable for the Mega ?
my mate took the sandman up after the main race to do the qualifier on it, sandman were looking for people to race on them (letting you take it for nothing)
If I could have had a few days to practice on it I would have been tempted. This fat bike had a 6″ fork dropper post and proper AM kit on it not one of those UK prancing things 😉Posted 4 years agozerocoolMember
Probably not, but then I don’t think they’re a suitable choice for most things. Just the next new ‘hipster cool’ niche now that everyone has CX and Fixies.
What about doing it on a fat, fixed CX bike, then you’d be the first for sure.
Just a question, but what type of riding/terrain in the UK are they more suited to than other types of bike?Posted 4 years agotazzymtbMember
As long as you have a modicum of riding ability a fat bike goes up seriously steep, rocky, evily off camber climbs way better than any standard full bouncey or 29er thing. They also rock on seriously tech steep slow trialsy downs…on the sort of high speed trail mincer gnarecore bmx track with the odd rock in like what I presume you ride zerocool, then they are a bit of handful and a normal rider will be quicker on a skll compensation suspension sled. Oh and fatties arw cack at xc racing and cyclo cross as well.Posted 4 years ago
