Saturday's Snow/Mud demo

Most riders loved the Moonlander. How could you not?

This stuff was absent.

Fat bikes are great trick bikes also.

This guy got the most miles in for the day.

Riders marveling as to how agile and nimble Fat bikes are.

Moonlanders were riding in the swamp, just off the river behind us.

This young man was trying to fly to the moon.

So we had hoped for some snow but on the other hand we got thinking how it was actually good that the conditions were what they were. The people that showed up were more interested in seeing the bikes, getting a good feel as to how they rode and getting a lot of doubts out of their heads. You see a fat bike is a bike made for all conditions. With the amount of forest preserves, trails and wilderness that this area has to offer it is a no brainer that a fat bike is at home in Central New York. We had Pugsleys and Moonlanders for the demo and all bikes got a good use on them. Bob and I drove the herd back and powerwashed, oiled and brought the bikes back to life. We are hoping to have another outing with some snow so we can do this over again. Here are some pictures of the day. It was a lot of fun and everyone got a chance to try the bikes out!
