Well, the last of the weekend's guests having departed, and no one scheduled in until Monday night (unlike winter bikers, these folks are seriously demented: ice divers! ), and the record-breaking cold of November being past, Vox Clamantis and I took Fatty on its inaugural bikjör.
Good stuff! FatBike and Voxy both did extremely well, and I did okay, too. Never has that initial 1.5-mile up-ramp of the Denali Highway been so easy in any non-motorized fashion.
Sorry I haven't any pix, but there was no way I could manage a camera. Besides, the light was wretched.
Although I do have a "Springer" (device for marrying dog & bicycle), I opted for affixing Voxy to me via my normal skijör fashion - with her harness's line leading to a carabiner attached to my old climbing harness. I recommend this: the dog is attached to the rider, and not the bike. Leads to less squirreliness, something a winter biker has enough of already.
Mark can detail the history of my FatBike, if he cares. BTW, Mark - that heading down that ramp reinforces my belief that you and I really do need to talk about a front brake, and not just for the summertime.....
Also, that saddle isn't doing the trick with my neuralgia. Any suggestions/options? Anyone?
