I AM FAT, Two - January 12

Postby Rage » Tue Dec 17, 2013 10:59 pm

Yep, time for the second crack at Iowa's Annual Magestic Fat-ride Around Trueblood. Once again we're joining up with our friends from World of Bikes, Geoff's Bike and SKi, and Salsa Cycles to bring a Fatbike adventure that can't be beat. This year we'll have access to the new Terry Trueblood Lodge for our home base - very pimp! Fatbike demos will run from 9am to noon, with the solo or 3-person Enduro starting at noon. This year we'll run with the teams you organize in advance. If you don't get hooked up with a team, no worries: we'll get something setup to match people up before the enduro. Will provide updates when available.

Good times, ever'body gonna be there.

Any Lamba members want to do this? I don't have a fat bike, but I'd be happy to be on your team and ride yours! :)

Paul and I are doing this, and I think CG is teaming up too. We have two bikes, so we might be able to work something out. Maybe get Eric Fisher on board too.
When I was a kid, I rode bikes. Now I ride bikes and act like a kid. Some things never change.

If we can get Eric or someone with a medium or large I would do it! :)

I am sure we can find enough people and bikes to put together a couple of LAMBA teams. I am game for whatever everyone wants to do. Sounds fun!!

I'm thinking about doing it. Got a 19" Mukluk that's been gathering dust. Suppose I should get out on some long training rides. Will have to wait and see what the weather is like on the day of the event. Last year all the snow melted and it looked like mud, so I skipped.

Lets do this. Will I be disqualified because my rear tyre is 2.75 instead of 3.75?

3.8 min tire width requirement. Not to worry - share a bike with your posse!
