But huge technological leaps have the masses wanting Fatbacks, Mukluks, Pugsleys and 9:ZERO:7 bikes. Alaska's shops are shipping their frames all over the freakin' place. If you walk into a shop and see a fat bike you like, you'd better buy it or it very well might be gone the next day.
But I was still surprised to learn that so many are people riding fat bikes, IMBA felt the need to come up with a list of "best practices."
I know IMBA means well, but I'm not so sure I like this "legitimizing" of my beloved winter activity. And I definitely have some problems with rule No. 4: "You are able to safely control your bike and ride in a straight line."
When fresh snow and flask rides are outlawed, only outlaws will ride in fresh snow and carry flasks.
