Fat Bikes May Be Habit Forming

There’s a lot of anecdotal evidence that sports can be addictive — hours spent alone running through the woods, spending every last dollar to purchase a cam needed to lead a coveted route and maxing out a credit card each spring for a season ski pass that isn’t used until winter are just a few examples I can think of from my life in about 30 seconds.

Apparently I’m not alone. The website Singletracks.com did a survey among its readers to back up what we suspected: Fat-biking is addictive! They allowed us to share their graphical data with you. —Sean McCoy
