Question O'Beast

Had to go one of the local bike shops yesterday, and what did I see?

The biggest fattest tires I have ever seen. I think one of our engines would slide right What a monster!!

Is that the surly one? I saw one of those too and thought it would make a sweet off road machine!

Last winter i rode one of these for about 2 miles and it wore me out -- there is lots of road resistance -- i beleive you can run them on 5 lbs of air in the tires. Would take a more powerful engine it doesnt need front shocks!
