I don't think there is a single local bike shop that is not trying to get the Surly Pugsley and Salsa Mukluk on floor. Add to that the number of shops that are selling Fatback and 9 zero 7s and you have what amounts to a booming fat bike movement in the local cycling community.
The number of websites, blogs, and cycling retailers promoting "Snow Bikes" is growing weekly. Although it is still somewhat of a "niche" community I feel that it is rapidly growing into something closer to mainstream. Components manufacturers and designers continue to come up with new and improved fat bike specific components and accessories.
