Congratulations @PdalPowr. I hope you enjoy your new fat bike. The smiles-per-mile that a fattie provides is priceless.

I went to pick up my fatty and my mechanic
gave me two Vee Rubber slick tires.
There was plenty of rubber on them.
He says the slick surface is prone to picking up glass.
I at least get to try them out. It looks like I will be doing some pavement riding.

I have a strange job, keeping tabs on about 1000 acres is part of it. Being a cyclist, it only made sense to ride a bike on it whenever possible and a fat bike is perfect for doing that. As it turns out, it's great for getting in seat time when the weather is to dicey to get out on the road, and it's even better to hunt with.

Cool beans about the great job.
Is the thousand acres wooded? I too am a hunter and
took a doe with my longbow after seven years of hard hunting.
I bet you nice fat tires will make very little sound.

It's mostly wooded, with a little agriculture. Grats on your doe. No small feat with a long bow. You're right, fat bike tires are very quiet. I exclusively hunt off the fat bike. I never start an atv unless I need to haul one out. I'll ride up on deer fairly often getting in and out of the woods. The only exception is when the acorns are falling. Acorns popping under those tires is comically loud. Turkey season is even better. I can cover the entire place twice while locating gobblers, and do it very quietly.
