Two years later and the Marges/Lites combo with the Clown Shoes rim strip has made, for me, a perfect set of tubeless fun. I’ve not unseated the beads once, only adding more sealant from time to time.
When that Surly 50% off sale happened two years ago, I thought: why not? Roll fat out in the desert and maybe ride some snow if/when it falls. The big tires are a lot more fun than I could have known, though. I ride the Pugsley quite a bit, the heavier bike being good training and the rolling on 4 inches a goofy-grinned high time.
The 20 miles with friends in the Cuyamacas was a brisk-to-windy, chilly/cold, good-times pedal this past weekend. Fat or skinny, or somewhere in between … who cares?
