    Nice. How did you like the fatty tires on the cobbles/stream beds and other stuff in Lopez Cyn riding to the overpass and back?

    Sierra G - All I can say is that I would ride that trail every time if I had even a fat front on my El Mar. No more bouncing around, no more sinking and spinning out in the cobbles and sand. It was not nearly as sluggish as I imagined for a 38 lb bike. I have seen fat bikes in the 27 lb range now too. Granted they are $5k and up, but for a bike that can go anywhere and go anywhere fast while not needing suspension, yeah...that might be a bike in my future. Still loving the El Mar, but may need to pop a fatty on the front in the not so distant future.
