I want to build an all-purpose bicycle for accessing the maximum amount of the Alaskan outdoors.
This will NOT be a specialized sport bike for racing, stunt-riding, thrills, or riding on pavement.
It will be for transportation into the bush for me & my gear, guns, rods, sleeping bags, food, etc.
and then carry back out all of the above, plus fish, meat, and horns. It WILL pull a BOB type trailer.
Considering the various types of terrain that Alaska offers, from low & soggy, to high & rocky:
and without getting into brand loyalty, which type of bike would be the better basis for an AK bike?
29er MTB or Fat (26x3.7+)
