By now you're probably hear about this from the Surly Blog or other places. They are going to introduce a new fat bike this year, as well as a larger 4.5" Larry tire and wider 100mm Clown Shoe rims ala the Rolling Darryl.
From The Surly Blog.
This is well come news for all of us fat bikers. Whether or not you are in the market for these wider tires/rims, or even a newer, fatter Surly, this means more choice. More choice means more acceptance, acceptance means more innovation, innovations means more products, more price points, and likely more people on fat bikes.
For those of us who have been around long enough to see the development, standardization, and acceptance of 29ers by the general riding public, this all sounds familiar.
I will be following this story and these products as closely as I can, and I'll update here with any additional information I can. With a Pugsley in stock, 6 Mukluks in various configurations on the way, and of course Moonlanders when they are available, this is going to be a hell of a year for fat bikes here at Milltown.
I can't wait.
