Lol, that is exactly the way I ride a fat bike. It shouldn't be called Farley. Perhaps Slomo would be a better description.
Fun though...

Good try at riling things up, CM.
No one seems to be taking the bait though. Fatbikers just too lethargic I guess. Either that, or you're losing your touchBig Grin
Been focussing on skiing as per usual, 12 Mile has been riding nicely on skinnies though.

Bring a bike and a set of skiis to West Bragg Creek in the last few weeks and you will work less and enjoy moreSalute Pair of shoes to if you want to try winter funathaloning. Snowshoes are what I see a lot of but just don't quit understand given the options......too much work.....

Someone has to track out the less travelled trails so I can ride my fat bike on them, I even pondered cracking mine out so I could ride a sugar daddy/bobcat loop while waiting at the top of Strange Brew this weekend.

The masses are getting docile and complacent this time of year......just wait till spring is in the air and watch the e-panties twist up as they do every year! Nice to hear you're still reppin skinnies.

Just can't be bothered with getting a fatty, although if I didn't ski a lot I'd have one for sure.
I have been riding more this week though:
12 Mile trails are in primo shape for fat or thin on fast white dirt, studs nice for the handful of ice flows low down.
Paskapoo good also for all tires on most trails, no need at all for studs.

most places only allow pedal assist bikes, which that is not.

It's clearly an electric dirt motorbike, not "pedal assist" (which for many = "pedal controlled throttle"), and I don't think we will really see them on local bike trails, but it does raise concerns about the potential for ramping up the creeping motorization of non-motorized trails. After all, one could make many of the same arguments for inclusion, that we currently hear from e-bike proponents:
-it's "e"- eco friendly and all lol
-It's quiet!
-My wife/buddy can't ride/and or keep up without one.
-It's fun!
-Mind your own business, I can ride wherever I want.
What's interesting is segway's use of the term "dirt ebike". I wonder how "pedal assist" e-bikers feel about what looks like an attempt to piggyback on their designation.

Took the fatty for a spin in Fish Creek yesterday. Creek isn't frozen yet, so no ice-path, but all the singletrack was perfectly packed and running fast. Studded fatties probably preferable, but I'm sure it would be do-able with skinnies

Cleared out the late-night fog today with a great noontime ride on studded skinnies at Paskapoo. Did almost all the trails, conditions are very well packed, crunchy and firm throughout, studs not needed.
Here's to yet another year of bitchin', whining and the occasional trail reportBeer
