Thanks for the review. I wonder how it would feel in snow. I imagine they are often ridden in conditions that are pretty slow and maybe less bouncy.

I'd go for snowshoes first!

I will get snow shoes first. These fat tests are for Mrs. who has been worrying about how to stick with the transportation theme for birthdays with zeros in them: cedar canoe, rodeo kayak and super trike in the past.

A couple lbs more pressure is a lot less bounced, but would also negate some of the fat grip. My past observations in snow suggest that it hides the bounce quite a bit.

That's what I've heard, they are bouncy on hard surface but you don't notice it on soggy or soft ground.

I observed the bounce a bit more closely on the second bike and would agree with that 'Bent. Even a bed of damp pine needles hid it completely. I'd have to keep a log for a while to dial in the best pressure for different rides. And get a gauge that reads below 10psi.
