For traveling I have found that I just have too many bikes. Each with a specific purpose, they do a great job for me but it is just not possible to bring them all along.
I also have found I am needing a little more suspension to cushion my spine when mountain biking. So in doing some research I found the Mid-Fat or B-fat category of bike. These bikes sit smack between a Fat snow bike and a mountain bike.
They can generally support a 26x4.6 or 27.5x3.8 snow tire and for summer a 27.5x3.8 or 29x3 tire for trail riding. It makes for a very versatile general purpose do everything off-road bike. This new bike and my Carver Gravel bike together let me do any kind if riding I want and it fits on top of the car.
The frame I found is made by Devin Lenz in Colorado. He is a builder that specializes in 29'er and snow-ski bikes. He has been building for years and knows his business.
I was concerned about buying a bike unseen and unridden but luckily this bike fits me perfect and I really love riding it. I have been a big fan of plus sized tires since I got my Carver Gnarvester 29+ and this bike continues that tradition.
It is time for me to simplify and this bike helps allow me to continue to ride the trails I like without the baggage of too much stuff.
