THE FORCE IS STRONG WITH THIS ONE!!
« on: July 31, 2015, 03:41:49 pm »
Found this on a FB group ( Mongoose Fat-Bikes) Limited edition HUFFY ( yeah I know not Mongoose) Star Wars Fat bike... Apparently it is on sale at Target next month for $350... Not for me at that price.... Nice style frame though. Disc front ( by the looks of it) Canti/Vbrake rear.... Bad looking welds on down tube/ BB..... Strange wide axle on BB to accommodate the off set... Looks a bit weak... They must have used a standard MTB shell for the BB.

Yeah I'm sticking with The Beast ( eventually...... Next month yay!!!!) I have some nice ideas for it....and not being bike mechanical minded I love the idea of no gears... Nice simple bike for cruising .... See one of my other posts.... I'll be posting pics of the build once I get started....

Yeah I had a 21 speed MTB back in the UK.... I hated the derailer... And hated setting it  up.... Single speed is great as long as you get the right gearing.... You and the other guys on here, underground and YouTube have given out some great hints and tips.... And is what made me decided on the Beast... Plus its cheap as chips so you can mod and customize it with out messing up too much... Albert could you just check one of my other posts.. Just to make sure the gear I listed is OK... I don't want to order if I'm wrong... Thanks Mate!!

Cheers Mate..... Just needed to make sure.. Before I ordered... Thanks
Going to build a DiY bike stand out of Black pipe real soon ( designed by me) and I'll be doing that BB mod (like Either BigCam or Blown on Underground) where you put a grease nipple in it to create a sealed BB... :-)
