    Hey Doc I've been thinking a little more about your mav suggestion this week. My wrists have been killing me after last weekend. The mav would have cut down on that I'm sure.

    CK
    What are the blocks in the second and third pics?

    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

    As I get older, I increasingly find that `Normal` is over-rated !!!

    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,

    Coach
    eh?

    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...,

    Great photo. The sand looks very firm. Any parts of the race where you had an advantage on Endomorphs?
