    a buddy of mine and his wife just bought a couple of salsa mukluk fatbikes and he asked me over today to go on a fatbike ride. i rode his ("large" size...i'd need an extra large because i'm pretty tall) and he rode his wife's medium size.

    fucking thing was great. this isn't a pic of the bike i rode...it's just a pic of the same brands/types/models of bike:

    jesus was it fun to ride. if you have the means, i highly recommend picking one up. it's going to be my next bicycle purchase.

    Do you ever do anything other than purchase specific name-brand items and boast about your purchases of specific name-brand items?

    the thing rides like a dream. it's so comfortable and it goes over and through pretty much anything and everything. i thought it would be a tank to pedal but it wasn't. i really liked it.

    I've seen people convert their bmx bikes to these by just changing the fork and tires. But the rear frame looks way too tight for the fat tires.

    yeah, for sure. you'd also need to swap your cranks out because of how wide the tires are and how the front chain ring lines up with the rear cassette. i'm actually amazed at how affordable some of these bikes really are.

    i love to ride bikes and i live in a place where there's snow half the year. seems to make sense to have a bike at some point that is made for the snow (among other things).

    Seems pretty awesome. A bike you find for cheap at a garage sale would be perfect for a conversion project.
