    I do love the fat tires , for me the main reason is durability. I weigh in at 210lb and I constantly have to true the rims on my regular mountain bike. So I figured rather than diet :rolleyes: I'll just get a tougher bike.
    The grip is excellent to a point as evidenced in the picture. I think I ended up 15ft down the mountain side

    My (slightly modified) poor old Merida HFS 1000. Currently I'm looking for full-suspension successor to relieve my old bones.

    Took my MTB out today for a spin. Haven't seen much dirt as I kept it nicely on the tarmac :)

    Insane how strong and decent those 90s MTB's were. I still have my Cannondale M500 from 1993 that still runs smooth as silk.

    Certainly, the Maverick is the only one in the country.

    Whoop's I've done it again - 2016 Kona Precept 120. An end of model year bargain (£360 off) and the 7th thing to pedal in my ever increasing stable. Needs some position and suspension adjustments still but a lot of fun

    Mavericks are a rare breed in Europe, in America however you do see them much more.

    I also had a ML7 in '13 but after a rear shock that died I scrapped it.
