Welcome 2020 !

I haven't been feeling great the last couple of days, but with the day off it was time to play. So it was off on my new Giant Yukon Fat Bike for some much needed fun. I'm sure looking forward to a fun filled winter and with several other bikes set-up with studded tires I'm hoping to get a few people out for some fun with me.

It takes getting used too, but it does help block a straight shot of cold air hitting me.

Looks like you set that bike up perfectly - did I hear you say 5 tires?

Yes they are Dillinger 5's, but depending on your rim width you can get a different width. With the rims I have on that fat bike they are at 4 1/2", and I know that some guys are at 4.2" and another at 4.8 inches. With my Dillinger 4's on the other fat bike the front is at 3 3/4" while the back is at 4', different size rims.
