I would have preferred to see the Blizzard come back just like the Kona Explosif did - as a long travel hardtail - but, if you own the name Blizzard, you have to make it a fatbike.
On top of that, short of the Surly Pug Special Ops, the Blizzard is the sexiest fatbike on the market.
And there's still room for the Hammer to come back as a steel hardtail, right Rocky? Please?
Apologies for the repost, but I figured since 2015 marks the return of the Blizzard to Rocky Mountain's lineup, why not rerun what I wrote about it leaving the lineup in 2012.
Anyway, here is my eulogy to the longest running, fundamentally unchanged, mountain bike ever.
I'm 80. I wrench more than I ride and I like it that way.
