THE WORLD HEADQUARTERS
OF WINTER RIDING FANATICS
Welcome to the second annual WINTER BIKE EXPO presented by Freewheel Bike.
For decades Minneapolis cyclists have gathered in the winter to ride their bikes, share their tales, and have good times. The movement has lived at the front of our collective brains for some time. We just recently gave it a name and a venue. We gather all the brands with a dedication to winter riding and put them on display in one location. Watch the video. View the SLIDESHOW. Then come ride with us, learn with us, and embrace the wonderful mayhem that winter has to offer.
A demo featuring only winter bikes and winter bike equipment. Hundreds of riders took advantage of last year's fatbike demo to help them decide on the perfect bike. This year the demo is expanding to a studded tire course for both fatbike tires and standard tires. A fleet of bikes will be outfitted with the latest in studded tires. The Midtown Bike Center is equipped with a natural ice slide just outside the front door, making it the perfect proving grounds for studded tires. Find more details on our DEMO page.
"What on earth is a fatbike?" You're new here, aren't you? A fatbike has great big fat tires to ride over anything. Great for staying on top of the snow when it gets deep. Extremely capable of sloshing through mud, and sand. Ideal for bike camping in uncharted wildlands. And an all around hoot to ride just about anywhere. Stable, comfortable, fast, and durable. Kinda perfect.
The SUPERFAT CRIT is a fatbike event unlike any you will find. Race is set in an old railroad trench in the Minneapolis Midtown area. The course incorporates bridge runnoffs, log crossings, skinny rides, and man-made jumps. For 2012 more than a dozen new obstacles will be added to the course to test the limits of your fatbike handling skills. Race details can be found on our SUPERFAT CRIT page.
The 2012 edition of the Superfat Crit promises to be heaps more exciting than last year. Take a moment to checkout some of the new features we have planned, then head over to the Superfat page for more details.
