Forum Pulse: No Whining, Kona Fat Bike, Last Purchase

Fat Bike

Each week, we will choose a few discussion threads from the Mtbr forums to highlight and feature. This is the first installment and there is much to choose from! The discussions and topics are as varied as the forum members that participate in it. Having a discussion that includes photos always makes a thread more visually appealing, but of course photos aren’t a requirement. Most often, it is the subject matter and information that is shared among a common user base (mountain bikers like you!) that help create useful and interesting hot topics.


1). One picture, one line. No whining. Something about YOUR last ride.
Just like the title says, this thread is loaded with pix from the trail. Started in February of 2011 by Mtbr forum member “scrublover”, this thread is full of crash photos, riding shots, beautiful scenery, crash wounds, bike damage and more. Perfect photography skills not needed, just something that represents your ride. This thread is in our Passion forum and has over 6,760 replies and the current view count is over 800,000!


2.) Kona Fat Bike
Often times, a discussion comes up in our forums that is a sneak peek of something that someone found or saw that is an early look at a new product. This just might be one of those. Popular this week, Mtbr forum member “Machinist” posted this 6 days ago in the Fat Bike forum. Is it a rendering of a new Kona model?



3.) Post a PIC of your latest purchase [bike related only]
What started as a simple “show us what ya bought” thread has turned into a glimpse into the mountain bike market as a whole and what people are spending their hard earned cash on. Maybe you have your eye on a certain new helmet or wheelset and aren’t sure if you should pull the trigger? Find out if other mountain bikers like you are buying the same thing! Popular purchases seem to be bikes, forks, wheels, dropper posts, tools, tires, hydration packs and even bike transporters (aka vehicles)! What brands and models are most popular? Read and find out! This discussion was started in June of 2011 by Mtbr forum member (and SuperModerator) “CHUM”. This thread is also in our Passion forum and has 3,830 replies and over 514,600 views!

We hope you enjoy reading these highlighted discussions. These are just a few of the many great discussions going on in our forums right now. Why not register for the forums and participate? Maybe YOUR forum discussion will get chosen as a hot topic next week!
