    Bergen Peak with a hangover sounds mildly appealing.

    I am off this new years, so I say yes ! However, not being DD may make this difficult...

    I also have your book, PBRyou!

    I missed the last two years so I'll try something different. I vow to only drink until I puke instead of drinking until I pass out so I will be nice and fresh for the ride.

    Yes, carpool please.

    Oh hell yes. Good times with good people, I'll be there with bells on. And maybe trying out a new bike again...
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    I can either drive from Golden with 2 more bikes and 2 more people, or ride with someone.

    Golden carpool anyone?

    I am letting the sideburns grow together, reminding the family about the date/time and have been pigging out on chocolate pretzels at work and turkey with stuffing and pie leftovers at home. It looks like I may be able to attend

    I can drive. Does MGE have racks to accomdate 3 bikes? I'll be "demo-ing" a Mukluk, not sure how that fits on racks. We can put bikes in the back of my truck.

    Thought about bringing the wife, but I have yet to do much riding on the snow on the tandem and don't want to start the new year off injuring the wife...

    I'll be leaving from the Apex neighborhoods around 9:20 and can pick folks up at the TRex lots also if needed. I should have at least two spots available- hitch rack should take the fatties, too. Lemme know if anyone needs a ride.

    Thank you all that showed today for the opportunity to carry your beer to the top. I had a great hike today. Saw a few deer and even a pine martin. Cool stuff and I needed the fresh air.

    I didn't have a camera today but this is what a martin looks like:


    Not this martin:

    Wish I'd charged the camera the night before, I wound up bringing it and it gave up after one photo.

    Awesome shots! Keep 'em coming!

    Thanks for the motivation PBR! It is always nice to ride bikes with friends, the first day of the year. The whiskey was tasty and the traction was good!



    Plus, a girl had to represent!

    I had so much fun, I did a solo ride at lunch today...

    some people never learn (goldenboy - 1st of MGE's pix).
    Don't you remember the last time you tried a stunt like that???
    Think Cent Cone switchback. That wasn't on a fatbike though, so maybe the fatbike saved your bacon this time.

    Scared is what's wrong with this forum. The Krampus is what's right.

    Ignore Scared, I was the fella on the Krampus. They're not available for purchase yet, I was on a prototype that Salvagetti let me demo.

    On snow it's about halfway between a normal bike and a fatbike. If I wavered away from the packed down trails and got into powder things still got real slippery real fast. It was way fun and grippy on the packed stuff though, and I could motor up things that were giving others a hard time from lack of grip.

    On dirt I think it's replaced the Titanium Hardtail 29er as my n+1 bike. The tires had plenty of cush at 9 psi to smooth out rocks and bumps, it still felt very efficient climbing, if heavy, and in the prototype 1x9 setup (39x36 is the granny!) I could stand up on steep sections and hammer big, sloppy, square pedal strokes without the rear tire breaking loose. It handles nice and grips for days.

    The steering geometry felt right, but the bars were very low for me with the short headtube. I always felt too over the front of the bike the way it's set up, and friends who own one that pedaled around the parking lot said it's very similar to Karate Monkey geometry. I'd have to put an embarrassing amount of spacers under the bars or have Surly tweak the geometry from the factory to get the bars level with the seat. Your mileage may vary.

    They're reworking the prototype a bit before it's released to the public, I understand the front cog is going to be changed to 32T, the rear was too flexy for them (it felt fine, but I didn't take it on any sweet jumps), and I hear they're beefing up the sidewalls on the tires, which (I hear) tend to shred and explode easily. It uses normal 29er tubes.

    If it fit me better, $2 grand would be hard to ignore, it'd be the perfect winter commuter when it's too sloppy for road tires and a big-smile-inducing cross country machine. 29er+ is absolutely the right thing to call it, it feels like a normal 29er, but more. It smooths out the trail more, grips more, and carries more momentum.

    Thanks, hirschmj. I rode a Krampus at the Salvagetti/Surly demo, but there wasn't any snow to try it in at the time. I mostly ride road, but I'm planning on doing more mountain biking. My all-purpose roadie is a Surly LHT with 2" Schwalbe Marathon Supremes - great for commuting and awesome for all of the metro area paths/roads.

    My only mountain bike is an old, heavy Trek 820. I'm considering a Necro or a Krampus and keep leaning back and forth between the two. The Necro Pug would be better for the snow, but I think the Krampus might fill more roles for me, since I'm looking for a bike to handle year-round Colorado mountain biking duty.

    Those Schwalbe Marathons don't give a F, you can ride on razorwire all day long and not get flats.

    If I wanted a fatbike as my do everything front range year round mountain bike, it'd be between the Krampus and the Beargrease. That Pugs is way cool but heavy for summer riding, the Beargrease drops like 6-8 pounds off your standard fatbike weight and at 28.5 pounds it really makes all-season riding a reality. The Krampus is 1x10, so keep that in mind.
    The correct number of bikes one should own is N+1, where N is the number of bikes currently owned.

    Would have loved to have been there for that one--looks like a blast! Maybe next year! Gotta start workin' on both me beeerd and me belly NOW to match some of that largesse though, wow!

    No snow in Austin this year, but here's one of the 20s in action after the Great Texas Blizzard of 2011:



    Snows maybe once a decade here, yet only one other person in the whole damn town showed up to ride the trails that day... I am proud to say, however, that at least it turned out to be a buddy of mine.

    Cheers,
