    Hey MT ,

    great beach ride

    Fatbikes do `eat it up` but it can be a `bucking broncho ride`

    Have you considered the Mav SC32 up front?

    It really does make a difference !

    Looking forward to more of your Pix .

    Cheers,
    Dr FG.

    Had a friend down here in Australia who rode 10 deserts, 7000 odd km, sand dunes & towed a custom fat tyre trailer. Two different trailers shown as one snapped. Can read his increadible story in link below. Very inspiring guy.

    when is surly going to make a fat tire big dummy? That would make more sense to me than a trailer. Certainly a crazy trip though!

    You won`t regret getting some front bounce MT, it really does help

    The blocks are `tank traps` from WW2.

    They were put in place to prevent tanks and large vehicles getting off the beaches if there was a sea borne invasion.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    mini trail the blocks are WW2 anti tank blocks, if `ze germans` had won the battle of britain then we would have proberly been invaded so coastal defences were built to slow down an invasion force until the home gaurd and RAF were scrambled,there was also posts out in the flat sand bays to stop gliders landing and machine gun pill boxes,i did some film at them yest which will go on my blog by tomorrow,
    heres one with the date written on it by the soilder who proberly made it..



    heres an intresting website of wartime here in east lothian http://www.eastlothianatwar.co.uk/

    anyway thanks to the supermarine spitfire it all wasnt needed

    im having a week (and 2 wknds) riding pugs mainly at home around the coast, but hope to do a mini road trip up to NW scotland to sandwood bay, 6 hour/285 mile drive end to end of scotland (s.e to s.w. corner) leave midnight drive up in car with pugsley-spend the day then head back again in the evening,sandwood bay is the most remote and said scenic beach in scotland-accessable by a rough 4 mile track..., i went there back in 2001 on a motorbike,its an amazing place,beach is 2 miles long between cliffs with a sea stack and dunes inland, heres a really cool film at sandwood bay, the music is the exellent scottish band `the beta band` i like this film,esp at 5.00mins!!, but i will do my own film.., enjoy...,http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uMIbp9tRKo

    Great pics there folks!

    There are some fun pics of steel frames riding on the beach. I'm curious what, if anything, you guys do to prevent your frames and parts from rusting.

    Cheers,

    just spray them inside with a frame preserver/wax then go ride..., dont worry about the rust.., its a cro moly not mild steel frameset so will take years to rust through,buy the time it does you will be onto another fatbike/pugsley build anyway so dont worry about it...,just get out there,get your moneys worth and enjoy...,

    The biggest advance I had with the endomorphs, were on the parts we ride from the seafront to the firm sand and back.
    It's also big fun to see all the riders walking with their ultra light, high-tech, carbon frame, expensive bikes

    On the hard parts of the beach I had the advance of a 29er.

    I started back in the 900 and higher group and finished as 516.

    Next race please

    With no mountains in the Netherlands, racing on the beach is very popular.
    The are all open races. You donít to be a member or something.
    Just bring a bike and a helmet.

    Pro riders use it for there wintertraining.

    This was the Rabobank Beach Challenge in my home town Scheveningen.
    http://www.interimsport.nl/beachchallenge/

    Other beach race in the Netherlands and Belgium.

    well done tommy
    thats the first beach race ive heard of and the pug would be the way to go!,
    they used to do sand racing on ovals on motorbikes until the mid 1960s and stockcar racing on the beaches until the early 1970s here in the UK but i never knew of any bicycle races on sand,but the netherlands is the embraced homeland of the bicycle and being coastal it makes sense...im well jealous!!!!!!, will just have to go a solo beachride tomorrow then! (bottom lip out,,,)

    Broken lobster traps. I hate seeing these things, because every time one is lost at sea it just keeps killing and killing until it's smashed or washed ashore. One creature goes in for the bait, gets trapped and dies and another comes along to eat it, etc...


    No motorvehicles allowed.


    Local beach gravel. Sedimentary red sandstone (iron oxide) and glacial river gravel.


    Sponge Bob?!!


    A barnacle and some young mussels growing inside a piece of driftwood.


    It was a quick ride so I picked a landmark to pedal to before turning around.


    It isn't just a landmark to me. I found tracks all around this dead tree; coyote, fox, seagull, crow, mink, raccoon, sparrow, sandpiper. Everyone goes out of their way to check out what's new at the tree. It must be the local rest stop.


    I'll update with more pics as I get them. We're in for a few days of sloppy rain, but after that I'm going past the area where I took these photos to the mouth of the bay. I'll snap some photos of Pugs with the enormous dunes. Until then, keep it fat.

    Thanks coastkid71, MiniTrail. My beach is on the north Shore of Canada's smallest province. We're in the Gulf of St. Lawrence which is shallow, warm, and fairly well protected from the deep, cold Atlantic. Great swimming in the summer!

    Great Pix Clong

    Looks like you will have lots of great places to go on your bike judging by the map you attatched.
    Looks like a really interesting part of the world

    Hey CK,
    here in Cumbria if it rains any more I may have to try and get SPD WELLIES

    Is that a nuclear power station in your Pix ? We have lots of those in this part of the world too

    My Pug will soon be back on the road(aka beach) as the new rear brake caliper is now here.

    Cheers, Dr FG
