Dibs on a test ride...

Noted. The best test is either after (or during) a day of rain or 10cm of snow. I swear yesterday I left the terrain park with a good 1 cm wrap of mud surrounding the tires. It made the grip slip a bit back on pavement until I found some ponding water to rinse it off a bit. Of course a good bit of that ended up on my back, and more than I care to admit in my mouth.

The tires were a bit wide for some of the single track gulleys, so you'd want to be aware of that. I tried to steer out of the ruts when they were especially narrow.

Albion is opening a fat-bike-only trail this winter. 3" minimum tire.
I'd better get on that 650B+ experiment.

Excellent, I'll have to remember that.
And it does sound like it is 650B+ time.

There is a fat bike demo day at Albion Hills this weekend - Sunday, I think, although I can't find the email. The Caledon Hills Cycling shop in Inglewood would have the details, as they are putting it on. We'll be away.

And there's a fat bike festival at Albion Hills in January.

Thanks for the tip.
We'll be in Tennessee for the festival, but it sounds like great fun.
