    Things finally warmed up a bit today so I went for a ride up the one of the local rivers on my Moonlander.

    Nice looks like it was a fun ride. I wish I lived somewhere where I could justify buying a surly with the big tires.

    These things are called Fatbikes and if you live anywhere that gets snow or near a beach then these things are worth a look. Lots of fun

    Yeah, I've seen those in the bike stores in Santa Cruz. For a roadie like me, those tires look painfully slow on the street, though I know that's not their purpose. :biggrin:

    Awesome bike nonetheless, and great photos to boot!

    The bike is painfully slow compared to a road bike but very fun none the less. You have to try one to understand. Took me one try and I wanted one. That and the 8 months of winter we had last year. Thanks about the pics.
     
  8. I just found this thread and as a fellow Moonlanderer I thought I would respond. I've had my Moonlander for 14 months, and it's the only bike that I've ridden in that period. I take it slow and easy and lots of photo breaks.
