And, in reality, it’s still prime fat bike season. So we thought that we would provide you with some fat bike candy — everything you want to feast your eyes on in regards to fat bikes, bike partscycling accessories, and cycling apparel.

The Intrepid Specialized Fatboy

(Other models include Fatboy Comp, Comp Carbon, Expert Carbon, Trail, and Pro Trail see details here)

We find that the Specialized Fatboy models continually maintain a positive reputation among fat bike riders and critics as a reliable, light weight, and enjoyable all around bike. If you ride around Golden, CO in the winter, you will have most certainly seen Fatboy prints in the snow because we see them all the time, and regularly take our bikes out on test rides.

If you race fat bikes, bikerader.com published a glowing review of the Fatboy Expert Carbon with the verdict that, with a lightweight carbon frame, fork and wheelset, the bike is “race-ready out of the box.”

We’ve been hearing more and more that our riders really appreciate having quality bike bags when they are out on their fat bike for long periods of time. Whether you’re bike packing, bike commuting, our just out for an extended ride, you might find a bike bag for your fat bike very useful.

Similarly, weather is changeable in the winter and spring months so riders are often putting on and taking off layers. And where do they store them? Bike bags! We recommend that you look into bike bags from Apidura, Revelate Designs, and Salsa. These are well-priced, durable bike bags that fit on your frame, handlebars, saddle, or top tube. You won’t regret purchasing one of these!

If you’re a winter cyclist, you are tough. You’re love of cycle overcomes any inhibitions to stay inside during cold, windy, and snowy winter weather. And while it’s not always easy to be outside in winter, you love the chill on your face and the wind whipping through your helmet holes.

But winter cycling doesn’t have to be a tough experience. Having the right gear can make an otherwise grueling outdoor ride into a much more enjoyable experience. Winter apparel staples include boots, poagies, and layers.

Your feet and hands are critical. bikerumor.com recently released a review of a favorite boot of ours — 45NRTH Wölvhammer which bike rumor described as “burly,” “rugged,” and the “warmest” and “most waterproof” boots tested. Similarly, we always recommend a pair of pogies to keep your hands nice and toasty.
