The business owner and mechanic (Billy) tunes up every bike so you are ready to ride. Therefore, we do NOT recommend breaking the bike down to fit in a small vehicle. It is recommended that you have a vehicle which can accommodate these large bicycles (pickup truck, Subaru wagon with all seats down in the back, etc.) to keep them intact. A normal bike rack on the roof of your car will not fit the fat bikes.

Rear racks are for those going to the local (in town) trail heads. These rear racks are not meant for long-distance excursions (the bikes are bulky & heavy). If renters use rear-mounted racks, they may be charged a ($45) cleaning fee per bike if there is excessive road grime (salt, mud etc.) on the bike/drive train, etc. To avoid the cleaning fees, it is recommended to transport the bikes in the back of a truck for long-distance adventures.

A common misunderstanding with fat bikes is that new riders think that you can ride through three feet of fresh snow like it’s asphalt! This is not true. By reducing your air pressure, it makes it easier to navigate through less than ideal snow conditions. You also need to understand, fat bikes are not that fast. Not until you get your legs used to the ten plus pounds of rotational weight! This is how our guided trips help people understand the techniques of fat biking in all conditions. When you have the proper information and training on the bikes, you will probably never ride another bike again (at least not for off road riding).trip #3 billy
