    Hi, coastkid71! I was very impressed by your films - http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=coastkid71 !
    Thank you!

    Hi, from Sibiria! Sorry, but all my photos might be called as "swamp riding" instead "sand/beach riding".

    Siberia is a really mad and wild country!



    Next year I am going to take part in the Trans-Baikal marathon race on fatbikes in the pair with my daughter . It will be real adventure!

    Zmey70,

    Sounds interesting, can you tell us a bit more about the race. How long, winter or summer, how many people and that sort of thing. I had a quick look o the web but it's all in Russian.... funny that Maybe you could put it in it's own thread.

    I've seen an interesting DVD about two Aussie guys who rode from Moscow to somewhere in China, an epic ride that went through some beautiful country in Russia.

    Al,

    Trans-Baikal is one of interesting events near the Lake Baikal. In 2010 Trans-Bakal will take place from July 19 to July 25. The registration will end in June 20. The length of the race will be 310 km divided by 5 stages with singletracks and gravel roads along the west Lake Baikal coast from Maloe Goloustnoe to Olkhon Island.
    http://www.waytorussia.net/Baikal/De...ns/Olkhon.html
    In 2009 30 commands (60 racers) took part in this race.
    The course of the race is suitable for fatbiking because of much sand, mud, gravel and swamps on the course though the forms of landscape are large and smooth.

    There are many interesting places for fatbiking around Irkutsk and Baikal Lake.
    For example:
    Traditional 100 km ride across the Lake Baikal in winter on fatbikes, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/00016sb5 .
    Irkut river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/000151hw .
    Kaya river valley fatbiking, http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/gallery/0001aec4 .
    Wild and amazing world of Olkhinskoe Plateau, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGvADRz9ntY .
    Fatbiking on Olkhon Island, http://pics.livejournal.com/kaer3/gallery/00007fb9 .

    If somebody has interest in the information about that I can create a special topic "Fatbiking in Siberia" or “Trans-Baikal marathon race”.

    Zmey,

    I'm interested in reading and seeing more of the Siberian cycling scene. Some of your pics look like some areas I've been here in Alaska. At what latitude are you located ?

    These are from a couple years ago. Test riding my fat bike before powder coating - my first peddle strokes! I had just finished assembling it an hour or so before these pics.

    Great Pix as always Guys

    1st ride on the beach for quite some time yesterday (reasons to be explained later !?!).

    Here are some Pix to set the mood.

    Yes those are (or were) four wheel drive cars stuck in the sand.

    The `wreck` is the Steamboat Anastasia, lost 1946. Here is a link to more info:-

    Blood Calls

    La Pugsdozer and I went to the river to check on the status after Alex (the hurricane)...

    We were impressed to see everything converted in a big riverbed (I was riding in what it was a Golf field)





    we had some fun though...we even found some sand!



    suddenly... La Pugdozer went crazy...totally out of control.





    of course!!



    she went nuts!





    specially with her blood cousin...The Bulldozer:



    she just couldn't contain herself



    She ask them to join us and play...but they were resting after a full week of labor...they ask us to see their work instead:





    * I didn't say anything but, due to their job I wasn't able to keep riding on that side of the river

    A nice ride last night

    Sun going down.......

    Moon coming up.....

    Tide coming in .......

    And a deserted beach , Bliss

    I did have a mechanical first last night, the none drive side crank arm fell off

    Bit of a surprise that, luckily not too far from civilization and with careful pedaling it stayed back on despite no crank bolt (lost in the sand somewhere!).

    Enjoy,
    Dr FG

    Advice

    Great pics and bikes every one.
    Dr Feelygood/Coastkid where did you get your bikes, wheels and tyres. I live by the coast and some great beaches (Tynemouth/Whitley Bay and the Northumberland coast).
    I would like to start a new build and have got some inspiration from all the bikes and scenery.
    Appreciate every ones advice.
    Thanks
    Skye

    Hey Skye,


    I went to lived in Newcastle for 1 year and loved the beaches around the coast.

    Used to get the metro and feed my coastal addiction at weekends

    Here are some useful threads for you :-

    Where to buy FAT in European Union

    Fat bike products in Europe?

    My bike was imported from the USA from http://www.highintensitybikeshop.com/

    but at that time £1 = nearly $2 so even with shipping and import duty it was good.

    As mentioned in the 2nd thread Billys in the UK has and can get all you need but it IS expensive.

    You can also pick up stuff on Ebay if you are lucky.

    Cheapest 100mm BB I`ve found in the UK is here :-

    Cheers,
