Fat Biking is Addictive: Singletracks’ New Infographic

After their look into 650b, Singletracks seems to be getting into the habit of making some fascinating infographics. The subject of the latest piece of visual information? What else, but fatbikes? You’ve read my opinion on the matter, but what does the general riding public think when it comes to the snow crushing, slop surfing fun machines? Based on their own survey of nearly 1,000 riders, Singletracks put together a graphic that includes who is riding them, where they’re being ridden, how long, how heavy, what brands and more. All that’s missing is the bike.

Plow through the world of fatbikes next.

I am addicted, I want to put front suspension on my current fat bike and also buy a full carbon fatbike.

This is all very interesting data. One number that jumps out at me is “64% of fatbike owners are willing to pay to ride groomed snow trails”. I thought fat bikes were all about making lemons out of lemonade. So why would riders be willing to pay extra to ride artificially neat trails when they have a “go-anywhere” bike? Am I missing something?

Sam Placette, my city is considering a proposal to groom some multi-use (no motorized) trails in the city trail network. They are not go anywhere bikes in places with lots of snow, they require packed snow to ride on and it take a lot of work to pack those trails when it is really snowy.. like a few inches every few days renders singletrack unrideable and you have to spend all your time snowshoeing. It is not surprising fat bikers would be willing to pay to ride on groomed trails. I pay an annual membership to ski on groomed trails… sometimes it would be nice for the fatbike too.
