    Sinuk R. bikeraft

    This local (Nome AK) 70+-mike bikeraft has been on my list of must do trips every since I got a fatbike and a packraft. 26 mi. of gravel rd., 19 miles of river, and 27 mi. of beach riding. One ferry crossing across the outlet from a large lagoon where we used one raft to ferry all the bikes, gear and us. Keith C., Jack G. and I did it as a leisurely 2 night 3day camping trip. Photos by vb and Keith C. Three grizzly bears sighted at a safe, friendly distance. Ran into brush before we could get pics. Many bear (literally everywhere) and one set of wolf tracks on the beach. Though close to town, this area has a wild, remote feel.

    VB, Do you run the sand through a sluice after you clean it off the bikes?

    Great trip, I just got a raft to go with the bike and then took myself out of the bike or raft game for awhile until my ribs heal up. I'll be ready to bike by winter and the raft will have to wait til spring.

    The tourist folks working the sluice boxes in that last shot were having a good time, but not raving about the amount of gold coming off the beach this year. The offshore suction dredges are doing much better, when they can work. It's been a windy summer, lot's of down days. Hope you heal up quickly and get back out there.

    Yeah! I'm really digging' your 24"marge laced to alfine.
    24" 36 hole Large Marge's are bomb proof!
    I also built a wheelset with a rohloff laced up to 26" DT500's
    Kinda wish I went with Alex DX32's, or 26" Kris Holm rims

    Lately Iíve been running in singlespeed though, 32x20 ratio. The Alfine is just too heavy and power-sapping for the sort of riding Iíve been doing. Iíve done over 3,000 miles of Alfine riding and so that equates to roughly 5,000 miles of singlespeed riding.

    New to me Pugsley!

    Even a fat bike can't make me good at technical mountain biking... Almost endo-ed before this downhill, ended up sideways instead.



    I'm guessing the Mississippi used to be a bit higher at this point and this bridge served a purpose but for now, it seems to be a random bridge linking a the foresty trail area to a big empty field...

    Greetings Adventurers!

    I'm unknown around here, but I assure you I have ridden countless miles on grades steeper than 2%!

    I present to you my Surly Moonlander! Just finished assembling it last night. It's all stock except the stem and bars. Having ridden plenty of non-fat bikes I can say for certain that just taking this thing around the yard and driveway has me 100% satisfied with my purchase (there's some tiny mole hills in my yard that didn't stand a chance against these tires!). I AM IN LOVE! And that whole thing about the fat bike permasmile? TRUE.



    Moonlander and Giant Reign X1 with 2.4" tires.




    I hope to take it on a 1200' vertical climb after work today. I'm curious to see how it handles coming down at 25+MPH on hardpack. Maybe I'm playing with fire, but IDGAF!

    Sure, why not?

    Last night I didn't get to the mountain, but I was able to squeeze in a 9 mile XC ride.

    Now before I continue, let me preface my spiel with this: I am not trying to "fanboy" this up. I've ridden literally hundreds of miles on these same XC trails. They're close to home and great for quick rides. Over the years I've ridden the following bikes there: '94 Giant Iguana (full-rigid), '98 GT Backwoods XC hard tail, '05 Kona Shred hard tail, '09 Giant Reign X1 FS (40+lb porker), and now the '12 Moonlander.

    The verdict? MOONLANDER WINS. Holy shatballs I was having SO MUCH FUN last night! And with a sinus infection and cough to boot! I cruised on the flats and bombed through loose gravel and chunky basalt like a boss. It climbs like a billy goat! None of the other bikes compare!

    I did experience some bounce while pedaling (PSI adjustments needed, but I lack the tool for that at the moment). I just dealt with it. I also nearly got bucked off in a steep rock garden. Too much rebound! lol

    EDIT: I uploaded some super exciting uncut video for you guys. It's a rear-view fork mounted angle. Mostly just an experiment that turned out halfway decent! Rotor noise BAH!
    Moonlander XC Rear View Radness - YouTube

    Anyway, didn't get any action pictures, but here's some fat bike porn (very durty):

    First ride on a new to me Pugs! No action shots, as I was riding alone. But I had a huge grin on my face as I was rolling over roots, rocks, into mud and through the singletrack like I never have before. So happy with this purchase.

    My new pug came in today! I think I'm one of the very few, if only, guy riding a fatbike around downtown cincinnati. I got some weird looks from roadies, a couple complemented, and most just stared. This thing is so awesome. I can't wait to take it on some trails this weekend. Perma grin isn't a lie

    Greetings sir,

    It's a Gravity Light (FSA brand I think). They're more of a bright neon green in person. Perhaps radioactive. Scroll up and you'll see the matching bars on my Giant. I think they're limited edition. How limited? I do not know this.

    I got 32" bars "special" ordered. I really don't think I'm that special, but it made me feel good for a few seconds.

    Took it out for a sunrise ride. What a great bike. I thought it would handle like a truck, but it is pretty quick and took corner great. Cannot wait for this weekend if the rain holds off.

    Kickass!

    I too was expecting my Moonlander to handle like a truck. I was proven wrong. It rolls and steers without any trouble, IMO.

    However, I can see the benefit of a tire like the Nate or HuDu (or upcoming Bud and Lou) over a BFL. Cornering on the round and less knobby BFL was a bit sketchy for me. Normally I can lean hard on my 2.4" Maxxis Advantage tires and they hook up nicely, but the BFLs washed out too easily and too early for my comfort level. It's all good though. It's not a GD downhill bike anyway! .
