Yes, the Hookworm tires popped into my head almost immediately. What a strange time to have lived

There's at least one 5-star review of them on the internet, so I can't blame you *too* much for being misled.

Would scheme a theoretical spencer around.

i have heard that the only way to fix the self-steer on the black floyds is to run them at 30psi. not joking.

lol 22-30 psi, that is some MTBR shit right there

All the fatbike tires I've ridden become a different kind of weird at like 12psi, 30 psi I can only imagine

I threw caution to the wind and went straight to 25 PSI. Two inches of rock hard contact patch. The self-steer vanished, and I did my 10 mile commute. I could feel every rock and stick in the road, ricocheting into my sit bones. A road spencer that hasn't slept in 72 hours, and is also drunk. MTB singlespeed gearing and 32 pounds of steel and rubber. I biked miserably up the hills, and then rolled begrudgingly down the other side with only a meager increase in speed. I hopped a curb, and the spencer bounced on the other side like a basketball.

At the end of the ride, I put the spencer away, walked inside, and caught my reflection in the mirror. I paused. I looked deep into my own eyes, and said to myself,

What the fuck am I doing right now

I made my spencer completely joyless. It's a nothing-spencer now. It's like a black hole of neutrality. It's a $2000 wal-mart Mongoose.

Fuck this project. Fucking tarck was right about me. Tarck, tell your sister you were right about me. Tell your sister... you were right.

But you got a lot of attention from Instagram, which is why 3/4 of custom bikes are built in the first place.

Can we take a minute to talk about that other dude though? I thought he was a typical cheap weirdo Surly guy who blew all his money in a Pugsley, but then he mounted those bastard wheels up to what appeared to be a Ti Mukluk with possibly a Rohloff? What the fuck? Clearly cost isn't keeping him from buying a pair of Dillingers.

I see so many idiots riding fat bikes around here with tires pumped up to 20+ psi and it makes me so upset that those idiots are riding around town year round with rock hard tires.

Not with Surly behind the wheel. As this point, they're basically just trolling.

Why are they trying to corner a section of the market that is rapidly shrinking? I don't get it.

World trolling or just regular trolling? Maybe Ogreing. It's exactly what surly would do.
