It might not feel like spring when you’re de-icing your car windscreen on a grey and chilly morning, but it’s safe to say in mid-March those first signs of spring are beginning to show.

Whether the cold and wet weather over winter has kept you off your bike or not, the arrival of spring brings with it the excitement of longer days (or at least daylight) fast approaching – meaning more time to get those legs spinning.

Fat Bike fun with the Calibre Dune!

1
Comments

Spring might be around the corner but the wet and wintry weather is still lingering on. So with sloppy trails and no end in sight, why not embrace the mud (and maybe even snow) and treat yourself to a fat bike?

Two Wheels Better took a first look at our Dune and a range of customer reviews from the Go Outdoors website to get an idea of whether the Dune is a budget blaster to be reckoned with.

Their verdict? We’re thrilled to see the team at Two Wheels Better were impressed with the look and that it “didn’t feel like a cheap bike” following a quick spin at Mountain Mayhem.

Why not take a look at their full review and even some of our customers’ thoughts here: http://twowheelsbetter.cc/bikes-gear/calibre-dune-fatbike-from-gooutdoors-first-look/
