Double-boinger blubber bikes

The rumors started yesterday.  Salsa’s working on a double-suspension fat bike.  “Oh, goody,” thought I.  “Sheldon Brown’s not dead and it’s April 1st.  This is awesome on so many levels!”  As it turns out, I was only dreaming about waking from a bad dream.  Affix your dull stare here.  Seriously, how much squishy can one cyclist need?  A lot, apparently.  The cycloblogosphere is full of “OMG! Shiny!” today.

On a more serious note, I’ve always been a proponent of strong property rights.  In other words, it’s your money and you can spend it however you want.  However, HOWEVER, I do reserve full rights to point and laugh.

Maybe this will hit the market one day and someone will mount a Brooks B135 on it with a Thudbuster.  It’s only fitting.

  1. I’m getting one and putting my brooks B.190 on it!


  2. I can’t get the page to load. I really want to see it! It sounds fun and absurd. Nothing wrong with that!

  3. Don’t forget yer Softride stem, too.

  4. I am perfectly happy with the built-in squish of the 4″ tires on my Mukluk. But, then again, I am perfectly happy with the built-in squish of any tires, on bicycles, and no longer ride with the extra weight of suspension components. That’s one of the advantages of being a slow mountain biker: You can ride a simpler, lighter bike.
