    Snow ride video

    Got out for a nice snow ride in the Monument Preserve today. Good conditions for my fat-tired Inbred (3.7" front, 2.7" rear). Should be even more fun after tonight's snow.

    Trying to figure out the ideal camera angle w/ the chest harness. I had snow on the lens issues, which I guess is inevitable when it is actively snowing...

    You kill me

    Can't believe you go that fast on a hardtail niner.

    Got a smile on my face a couple time though when you hit a stray rock or two and flew off the trail, thats happens all the time on that trail.

    May try to get out a ride freshies tomorrow.

    Dam,

    Good video. Where the HD?

    We have actually been riding stoopid for the last couple of months fairly regularly, and its always nice when the b man smashes down the snow with his fat tires!

    ha!

    I was just too impatient to take the time to publish in HD. I may do it tomorrow but iwas a bit bummed by the water on the lens and I can only do one HD vid per week on my basic vimeo account.

    I run a 46mm echo on the rear. I still have a lot of clearance. That inbred is really wide!

    I'm gonna try to get out again tomorrow if I can. May be my last flexible weekday for a long time. Hit me up on my cell if you want some company. I'll see if I can swing it.

    Thinking around 11am

    If the weather holds out I will hit the preserve, but its snowing harder now than it did all night.

    No meetings on my schedule, so I can probably work an early "lunch" ride. It was pounding here for a bit, but has chilled out. Only a few inches of freshies, but should make for a fun ride.

    Which Inbred is that 26 or 29? Now you've got me thinking about getting some new tires for my Inbred... I've got the 26er, but it's just been sitting in the basement since I built up something else.

    26er. Mine has massive clearance. Throw a Pugsley fork or a Maverick SC32 on there and you have a fairly capable snow machine.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what are the horn-like inward protrusions on your handlebars?

    those are titec h bars. Many hand positions, which are great for endurance rides and people like me with screwed up elbows (chroniic elbow tendinitis from years of climbing abuse)

    The new version of bar ends and bragging rights for non-fatigued hands.

    OK, got some fairly big tires for the Inbred: 2.5 and 2.6 (what I could find on closeout). I'm going to see just how this works... Got a little park next door I can experiment in. Heh heh.
