|Anyone ever say your bike was too big and it looked like you were riding a gate?|
As the name suggests, the Fat Lion was originally designed for a fat bike, specifically Aidan Harding’s fat bike and the 2014 Iditarod Trail Invitational … obviously 13L isn’t really an option when you’re riding 1000 miles through Alaska in winter. The design shares some characteristics with the Mountain Lion while others are unique, consider it a Mountain Lion on steroids. Although conceived for use on bikes sporting 4″ tyres or bigger, there’s nothing to stop anyone with larger than usual loads from using one … I believe it could even be fitted to a bike with tyres narrower than 2″ without the world ending.
On my next few trips, I shall be packing my -20° bag, great big jacket and other stuff I’d usually leave behind … I’ll let you know how the fat one and me get on.
