    I believe that they are used in Motor cross, but this is a mountain bike specific item.

    The aim is to reduce the tendancy to over correct your steering in rough terrain, or ( in the case of a Fatbike) the self steering tendancies of the Endomorph tyre !
    Ahh,got it - good idea.
    do they self center? or is it just damping?
    Honestly... ahh I give up

    INCREDIBLE PICTURES!!!...It's a real Blessing having the means to access such beautiful remote areas( THANK YOU JESUS for creating such a beautiful Planet for us ). I can't wait until I take delivery of my new Hanebrink Extreme Terrain next week, then I'll be able to ride the beaches again. My first one I had twelve yearsago was able to traverse sand, mud and snow like it was pavement. It would be cool to catch up with some Pugsly owners, we could show off for folks who have regular sized tires(no insult intended...I have and ride one of those also, just on different terrain; ie technical single track and such). We could see who can see which bike can go the furthest in the deep sand...

    Thanks

    Here is some info about the big gun.
    Battery 519

    It has been renovated as a museum now, hence the glass windows.

    Great Pix

    I enjoyed the slideshow.

    They are some serious bunkers. We have some on our coast too, but not on that scale and they are not being preserved.

    Yea, they were a serious part of our coastal defense during WWII. After the war, the land slowly was given over to the state for a state park. The Navy still used areas till 80s. The park is about a 15 minute drive from my house. Can't wait to go there more this summer.

    Hey aljee,
    welcome to the beach club

    riding a Pug on the sand is an amazing experience

    You don`t realise HOW GOOD until you try it with 'normal' tyres and end up sinking and sliding all over the place.

    The sand does get everywhere and it will (over time) EAT parts of the Pug.......

    BUT it IS worth it for the shear fun and smiles that you will enjoy.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    thanks Doc.
    glad to be here.
    i understood at the time of building that some parts will fail faster than on other bikes, that's kinda the whole point of this bike is to go places you can't take other bikes, regardless of what will happen to it.
    i built it with all the good intentions of destroying it (or destroying myself, which ever comes first) and i won't stop till i do. it's quickly become my number 1. i have even been commuting on it most of the time, till i get it all dialed in perfect.

    B & T, I'm not sure if I missed it but are you getting the electric version. Do they still sell the regular pedal version? I checked out their site but only the electric version is posted. I love to get one but might have to sell my Triumph in order to afford it.<input id="gwProxy" type="hidden"><!--Session data--><input onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" type="hidden">

    Another sunny day in coastal Alaska accompanied by minus tides called for a beach ride. Spring is trying to assert itself, though temps are still a bit cool.

    We started from just north of a cape marking one of the eastern-most points on Kodiak Island and rode north on the wide sand beach. Other than critter tracks (Sitka black-tail deer, fox, buffalo, etc) and some kelp, the beach was totally unmarked.





    There are a few shallow creeks cutting the beach to cross.



    The Emerald Isle won't green up for a few more weeks, but spring shoots were in evidence.





    A series of small capes break the beach into sections with easily negotiated boulder fields. Easy at low tides, that is.







    We got to the Sacramento River and had lunch. This river cuts through the beach at the northern exent of the sandy coastline. North of this point are uninterrupted steep cliffs for miles.









    A small ranch borders the beach and livestock roam the hills freely. These horses seemed especially thankful for a warm spring day.



    On our way back we decided to ride all the way over and around the cape we started near. This required us to leave the beach and ride the meadows above the cliffs. There are plenty of buffalo trails to follow.











    We are in the middle of the California gray whale migration right now and all along the coast hundreds of spouts dotted the ocean. In the water below the bluffs, harbor seals played in the shallows.







    An eagle prepares to build its nest in the usual spot.



    It was a good day.

    Kasilof Alaska Beach Ride

    I took the 9 Zero 7 for its first beach ride today rode about 10 miles on the beach south of Kasilof today weather was perfect little wind and the Cook Inlet was as flat as a mirror today. Alaska does it get any better than this? Love the Kodiak pictures going to have to venture down there and put some fat tracks on the beach there too! Well of to put the Zero in the snow one more time before it's gone Monday will post pics after that trip too.
