A North Shore Beer Run - Fat Bike Growler Style

The concept of a beer run is open to interpretation. For some it involves a fat bike, growler and some purple stuff. http://beermebc.com

 I know ima sound stupid but what's the point of a fat bike? Like in my opinion they're super ugly and look awkward to ride. Someone clue me in..

 I'll clue you in Kurt...you're a clueless child looking to bolster your self esteem by comparing yourself favorably against something outside your experience... The protagonist had a fun ride, enjoyed a nice view, got drunk and probably had a great screw with a beautiful girl... I'll have a fatbike..and a few of those beers too thanks....

 theres something fun about riding one that you have to experience to understand. its like the monster truck of bikes, and who doesn't like monster trucks!?

 I thought the original purpose of the fat bike was for riding across sand and snow and that sort of shizz

 Everybody on this site cries when a bike doesn't have 26"x2.35-2.7" tires and it makes me laugh so hard at the immaturity and arrogance of most of you.

 They were originally designed for snow in places like Alaska and the Yukon, tons of people ride them up there. I guess it trickled down when people realized the suspension the huge tires give you while trail riding and the stability from the wide tires. They are surprisingly light too.

 i loved the fat bike, i had the pleasure of riding one during my stay in the Caribou last week. I thought at first sight i was going to die on this mini epic xc behind Groundhog Lake cause of these f*ckn huge ass tires, but I was wrong. Thanks to Shreddy from the puddle I`m gonna get one of these.

 A few guys nailed it here, you have to ride one to understand it. If you don't have $2,500 in your bank account, don't even take the test ride because you're going to want to take it home. The thing that makes me laugh here is that most of the haters probably don't even have bank accounts!

Why have a fat bike? Why have a DH bike, or a 4" 29er or 6" all mountain ride? Because they each have a time and a place that let's me ride every week, all year long. I don't have a road bike, but I don't hate on my friends that do. I just tell them they're nuts because riding next to cars is crazy! A tree has never hit me once...

 Well said! I don't get 29ers or road bikes! No biggie! To each their own!

 I agree with you! Different bikes for different uses Smile I was lucky enough to demo a Bigfoot last week and it's really a super fun bike! In southwestern Ontario,, we rarely get enough snow anymore for winter sports, but with this bike I will be trail riding through those gloomy months. I believe the price for this bike is just over $1500 and they are not planning to build very many (at this point), so if you are interested, you should contact your local bike shop soon Smile

 Turnerburton, that was the most intelligent thing I've read on Pinkbike. Do I plan on buying a fat bike? no.
Do they look like a lot of fun? hell ya. You know what's not fun? haters!

 Nice dude, your hands must hurt riding without suspension lol.

 Instead of suspension parts he got super fat super ugly tires therefore..
  • + 1
 Suspension is overrated anyways. It's great for fast DH style riding, but for most of the impacts you don't need suspension (unless you ride Rampage). Look at what type of stuff BMX riders do without suspension: www.youtube.com/watch?v=91tde3iv8IQ

 ^ that idiot needs to get himself a helmet.

and the fat bike looks like alot of fun.

 Oh look, a comments thread where peeps are pissing on a bike that's not a DH, DJ/Slope bike or style of riding. People ride bikes (whatever style) for fun. You all should try it sometime.
