Thrasher Fat Bike
I've never seen that before
After seeing all the stuff everyone is doing throughout the year on their fat bikes,(Joboo, Farrow, Curiak etc.) I decided to build one up that would be a dedicated thrasher.I bought a frame as a reward to myself after working some overtime. I had a set of wheels laying around,some other misc. parts and I robbed a few things off some of my other bikes. I know most people don't even have a snow bike yet and having two fat bikes seems a little excessive but I've been riding these things since 05', I need this. During that time I've experimented with many different setups,as a result I'm on my 6th fatbike. The only goal over the years was to improve the ride for the Arrowhead 135, in doing so I built a bike that was too nice to destroy in the sand, mud, riverbeds,ditches,shorelines and whatever else these bikes will go through. My first bikes were kind of crappy so I rode them in the summer but as the bike got better I stopped until today when I got to break in my new thrasher. I also bought the new Nates, and they rock! They roll very well on pavement and pull like a tractor in the dirt.
