Avoiding any Metallica references

My new fat bike is nearly done. It's a stock Sandman Gobi. 80mm rims and 135mm spaced rigid fork for snow. SC32 and tougher 47mm rims for the summer (no photos of that yet). I've yet to build the 80mm rear wheel but.

The ride is great. Steering is much more positive than the Pugsley. It's also almost 7lb lighter than the Pug but with added with gears. It's really noticeable on the climbs. It's amazing what you can ride up in the 20:34! I'm looking forward to getting out on it more.

More pictures on my Flickr page.

Thanks to Conrad at Sandman for sorting it out in double quick time.
