Thanks to Wayne from Eds Bikes and Clare Woodall of Walkies with Woodall for these pictures. Some nice monster cross action
We dont get much snow in Essex, it seemed rude not to take the Fat Race out in it!
The Travers Fat Race has been away on long term review since October last year 2013. In fact it been away so long the frame has now been updated! with 5mm longer chainstay to allow for the use of 29+ wheels and a tapered headtube.
I think Matt is a convert!
We took the Fat Race and Rudy Fat along to the launch of the Cyclocross.com website and 34km off road ride from the Gravesend Cyclopark in Kent. It was a tough loop considering its short distance with some steep loose climbs.
We also bumped into the Travers CX Elite they had on test
It was the first proper Fat Bike race yesterday for the Fat Race in the Brighton Big Dog. We entered the Fat Bike pairs category with was for bike with 3" plus tyres (so I could also ride the Rudy Fat).
We can in 2nd place in the category. The time would have put us in the top 20 in the male pairs (out of 70)! who said fat bike cant be fast!
The review of the Fat Race appeared in the "What Mountain Bike" magazine last month, this month a slightly updated version appeared on Bike Radar with the addition of comment about our new Fat Prong forks. Which will also be reviewed later in the long term test.
The Fat Race set up as a "Monster Cross" bike with trail dog! #monstercross
Wayne Elliot from Eds Bikes left this morning on his epic coast to coast 150 mile ride on his Fat Race. There is still a chance to sponsor his and raise money for JDRF and Type 1 Diabetes.
Guess how long it will take him £5 per guess, all the money goes to JDRF and the 3 closest win a prize.
Wayne Elliot from Eds Bikes is doing the 150 mile coast to coast ride in 1 day on his monster Travers Fat Race...I will let him explain more...
Hi everyone, keep an eye out for me over the day, for those that don't know I am the mad one that took the bet from a good friend Tom Needham betting me i could not do the event on a fatbike.
To make it even harder it looks like i have no friends wanting to do it with me so im on my own
Im going to set out from the start at 6am so if anyone wants to join me then i will see you then.
for those that see me and pass me, do pull up and have a chat, i do respond well to been called a mad idiot and asked why.
Good luck to all taking part, remember if it gets tough and your hurting think about me lugging this bike across the country.
Im raising money for JDRF a charity close to a friend and organiser of the event, im not one for asking for sponsorship but if you want to have a look at the link and pledge £5 you can then take a bid how long it will take me, the closest bid will win some prizes.
