Fat Front Monday

I’ll be honest – I have never really understood the appeal of putting a 3+” tire on the front of an otherwise “normal” XC bike. But it seem to be the popular thing lately, so who am I to argue (also, since I’ve ridden fat front/rear, but never front only, I’m not in a position to judge). I can sort of imagine it’s like having a short-travel suspension fork on the front of the bike in some situations – and cornering traction probably rules!

In any case, thanks to Joel for the “obligatory old crappy cabin” photo.
