I just picked up my first fat tire. This thing ( Salsa beargrease) is awesome, rides great. Going to sell my lightspeed now.

Lightspeed details

XT brakes
Lx rear derailer
Mavic tubeless rims
Derore cranks and front derailer.......nothing special

Year 2004
Size ...... I am not sure I ride a medium. I am 5 10.

As for price I do not know if interested make me an offer.

Trying to attach picture but no luck. I will try later.

wow I read your post real quick and I thought you said you picked up a Fat City bike form the early 90s.

LOVE the ultra fat-tire bikes... I already have too many bikes in the garage otherwise I'd have to get one. Have you ridden it in the snow yet? Apparently it is a load of fun.

I was looking at the Salsa Mukluk, looks sweet. Not sure what the difference is between that and the Beargrease (and I'm too lazy to look it up right now) I know a guy out in Colorado who IIRC swapped out the stock with 4" wheels on the back and 5" on the front. Says it's awesome in the snow.

Brett- Who sells Salsa around here? What are the vitals on the Litespeed?

Added vitals for the lightspeed in my first post.


The salsa bear grease weighs 26 pounds and is one step up from the mukluk 3. Rides like your typical 29er but with snow tires. Wheel Werks in Crystal Lake sells Salsa.

Fat tire bike seem to be getting more poplular on the NJ mtb site. I rode one down the street and back the other day. Pretty neat but not really my style - just felt so weird riding such low psi.

If I had a lot more ride time I would get one tho just to mix things up. I bet they are a blast in the snow but when there is snow out or its cold my head is thinking riding a snowboard or play some outside hockey. But yeah, they are pretty cool

Here are some more pictures of the high-speed. I am going to price it at 600 or obo plus shipping.

Also a correction front derailer is Lx.

I had a Fat Chance Wicked, sold it about 2 years ago to a collector, fun bike.

The fat tire bikes look fun and if I had unlimited funds for bikes, I would have one, but not as a replacement to a FS XC bike.

Haha, I know - I was just joking/being a deck.

I agree, Hanebrink was ahead of his time on that design. Definitely an out of the box thinker. I remeber thinking "riding in the sand sucks, who would want one of those?" when it came out. But what the hell do I know. Hanebrink still makes a very similiar bike and offer an electric version which could be cool for certain applications.

I thought my tires were wide, but the monster bike crazy!


FYI, I will go 500 on the Lightspeed.
