Fat Bike Ripping – Ever Seen a Fat Bike do This?

Jan 8, 2018
by Pinkbike Staff  

Normally people pick up the fat bike for riding across Arctic tundra, over sand or through deep bogs. Not Pat Smage, though. At his local riding spot, Pat defies the preconceptions of fat biking by hucking, shredding and schralping his chunky-tyred beast around the woods.

 To everyone who’s hating on the video, can any of you do that on any bike? Pretty awesome riding all around. And it’s a 26” Bike which is the only way 26” is not dead.

 Was going to joke about how Fatbike hooning hasn't been a thing for 3 years... then realized this video came out 3 years ago. Ah.

 How did he convince his girl to film him?
Him: "Honey would you like to come out and watch me ride around an abandoned lot?"
Her: "???"
Him: "What if I gave you a fishing pole with a gopro on the end of it to chase me around with?"
Her: "Start the car"

 @employee7: Hannah loves this stuff! If you check out his YouTube channel you'll see she rides bikes too and even does motorcycle trials!

Pat is an insanely lucky guy to have her in his life.

Also, that "abandoned lot" is his... yet again he's pretty darn lucky Big Grin

And yes, I met them and they're super down to earth and cool.

 Good video but what he does on a trials motorcycle is much more impressive.

 @bubbrubb: I know... I wonder that... but we have a legit fat bike scene in the woods here. I really need to ride one a few more times and figure it all out!

 @mvwmvw: there’s a FB scene everywhere. Don’t have to buy what they sellin’ maaaaaan. For every FB I see, there’s a pair of tires waiting to fail.

 His wife is a great sport. You should see the wedding video where tries to do a stoppie into a kiss with her and almost takes her out!

 Sick video and that girl is a keeper! I can't even imagine how a conversation with my wife would go to ask her to film me.

 No but it would have been so much cooler if he was on a normal (slim?) bike.

 Exactly like the ski\snowboard arguments. Gear of choice DOESN'T matter, its all about the shenanigans your pulling in your chosen line... seak and send!!
