|The Boys at Chestnut Ridge playing in the snow|
Yes there have been a lot of photos flowing in through the Tom's Pro Bike Facebook page and blog report and most of them have been of people riding their bikes in snowy conditions. Most of the time those bikes are fat bikes and this is one of the largest growing segments in the bike industry right now.
|Yours truly at the 1/2 way point of the 200k D&L Fat Bike Epic held in early December|
There are many races around all parts of the country that are Fat Bike specific (3.8" or larger tires are required for entrance) and many more social group rides that you will find all over Facebook and their pages.
Today we are highlighting the Specialized Fatboy SE:
All the fun of a fat bike with the performance of a Specialized. The Fatboy SE combines a lightweight frame and fork with 4.6-inch Ground Control tires to create a geometry similar to Specialized 29er geometry for nimble handling in the most extreme conditions.
- Fully butted M4 Premium Aluminum frame w/ up to 5-inch tire clearance is lightweight and nimble
- Specialized alloy fork with airform construction is lightweight and stiff for precise handling
- Fatboy SL, alloy single wall rims provide a lightweight wheelset to tackle any terrain
- Specialized Ground Control Fat 26x4.6" tires roll over anything
- Custom 2x10, forged alloy crankarm, w/ 100mm spindle for putting the power down
- Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes for precise stopping power in all weather conditions
- SRAM X5, 10-speed, long cage rear derailleur for crisp and precise shifting
