    Listening to these guys excitement about BMX.. racing…. How they felt in the gate before the main event…. I miss feelings like those..  I think they are harder to feel the older you get too….  Makes me want to race something again….  badly…. I used to be real serious about my toy racing back in the day…  I couldn’t wait to go racing on the weekends..  Going out of town was awesome.. Those butterflies witing ont he start….  that was just tor car racing…    I dunno if I want to play with “toys” again… or something “real”.. real.. thats funny there!!!!!

    That panther looks sweet. But those old cruisers have terrible geometry compared to new MTB rigs. If you want to build a retro looking fat bike. I suggest buying a used bike and cutting it up. Fabricate a new top tube to make it look different. Something like that… Be on the look-out for a chromoly/steel fat bike. I couldn’t find much on our local craigslist. But I’ll keep my eye open. This one is a good deal considering that it has the suspension fork. https://westslope.craigslist.org/bik/d/2016-motobecane-boris/6284526101.html Here is a steel one. https://rockies.craigslist.org/bik/d/surly-pugsley-fat-bike-high/6297682734.html This one is spec’d-out nice. All the good stuff. https://westslope.craigslist.org/bik/d/specialized-fat-boy-large/6323518561.html

    Thanks for the info Franz. I’m kind of going away from the retro look now. That third link looks promising. If I knew a large was good for me, I’d have Rusty go pick it up for me and bring it to Moab.

    Well, after talking to a bunch of MB riders here about “fat tires”, I decided to shelf the idea and just bought a new 29’er with an XXL frame. Test rode it in the parking lot and fell in love with it.  It’s a Fuji Nevada 29. Kind of fitting, I grew up in NV.

    Yep! Made some major dietary changes and got my weight down 40lbs. Got plenty more to go, but kind of hit the wall weight loss wise with just diet. About all I can do is walk or ride, and I hate walking as it gets painful on the joints. So I got the road bike Kevin gave me back in riding condition, and want to do some dirt trails too. Plus, I can take this MB to Havasu and Moab and not have to walk everywhere.

    It all ties into the ultra light I’m building too. The max pilot weight is 275lbs, and I was way over that. I’m down to 255-260ish now, with a target of 230lbs.
