|Where I had mud and water on the way to work, I was glad for the fat bike.|
I prepared the Ti Muk on Sunday by throwing in a new tube in the back tire, going over the drive train a bit, and mounting my "Dave's Mudshovel" rear mud guard for what I was sure would be a really wet, messy commute on Monday morning. I wasn't wrong about that!
I was definitely glad I ran the fat bike, and I used pressures at sub-10psi too, just to float over the mud. I didn't suffer too bad on the flats, but I could feel the low pressures dragging a bit on paved sections for sure. Hey! More work to burn more calories, right? I hope so anyway!
So, will today be a fat bike commute day? It should be yet, but I have something to test, actually a couple of things, so I am riding a different bike. stay tuned for that tomorrow.......
