    A Magical Afternoon

    Rain & Sun. Rain & Sun. The Forest Glade was like a shimmering jewel.
    The colors and smells were just insanely vivid. Bless the Creek Gods!

    Yeah it was my first ride on that trail, pretty nice. We also rode some "4 wheeler"? trail that heads back north paralleling the highway to get back to Primrose that was awesome for fat bikes.

    After the windstorm I strapped my chainsaw to the rack of my fatty and got to work. Never pedaled single track at kincaid with a chainsaw on my bike, it was interesting. Loving the fatty!

    Here is a pic of the Pug I put together with some exra parts laying around, the 32 - 18 SS setup is a little rough at times, but a heck of a good time.

    Cuyuna is an excellent fat bike trail! I had my Necro Pug up for the weekend during the Rusty Ride. Did you make it over to the "fat bike trail"?

    Wha? I've been up there many times now, but didn't know there is a dedicated "fat bike trail" Where? In what unit? And what exactly makes it a fat bike trail?

    I know they have a section they use as an official winter riding trail and they are building a pump track, but I thought it ridden everything several times over.

    I use the term "trail" loosely. We rode the "fat bike trail" as part of the race(MN Rusty Ride). It was a mowed path through a prairie. Absolute garbage. Skip it and ride the mountain bike trail. (my perception could be biased since we rode 2/3rds non-mountain bike trails at a mountain bike race I drove 6 hours to ride.)

    This is why I find mountain bike racing silly in general, but very specifically in Minnesota. So much off road riding here is singletrack, designed to be twisty, low impact, maximal trail length for given land area. It doesn't jive with the idea of a passing lane.d

    I totally agree. Racing takes all of the fun out of it for me, and I suck at it.

    I don't think those are going to fit on my 9-0-7. My BFL's on Clownshoes just make it now.

    I haven't measured them but here's a couple of pic's of the BFL's and the Lou's. At least the same if not more clearance with the Lou's on my Moonie. YMMV of course.

    I was under the impression that the Bud and Lou were 4.9 " and the BFL's are 4.7 ". If the Bud and Lou are actually narrower I will have them ASAP

    Entered the fat world today... must say the bike is a blast. I figured I'd mostly relegate it to the snow season (what little we have) but after some tech and then forested trail exploration this ride is going to get a lot more use than I expected.

    Nice to see your pics of the Dells. I miss that place. As you're discovering, fatbikes are better trail bikes than most people think. If I had one down in your area I'd be exploring all the dry, sandy arroyos that aren't over run by the moto crowd. Enjoy your pugs. Like the custom paint.

    Loving these fat bikes, like a self propelled dune buggy - out of interest, what weights are builds being built at? 30lbs? 40 lbs?

    I haven't bothered to weigh mine but I'd guess close to 40lbs even with my carbon seatpost.

    I will say when comparing pedaling efficiency to a DH bike I once had (33 lbs or so) the Pugsley is far superior. I only notice the weight when I have to lift or push the thing.... or trying to power over an obstacle at almost stall speed.

    That said, you can put down an unbelievable amount of power with zero finesse because the tires just wont let go.
    Just keep pedaling...

    generally speaking aside from a 'custom' build the steel or alum bikes range from 30-36lbs and if built from scratch can be 27lbs if desired.

    I will say when comparing pedaling efficiency to a DH bike I once had (33 lbs or so) the Pugsley is far superior. I only notice the weight when I have to lift or push the thing.... or trying to power over an obstacle at almost stall speed.

    That said, you can put down an unbelievable amount of power with zero finesse because the tires just wont let go.
    it gets even faster if you run it as a single speed. mine is as fast as my 22lb 1x1

    Finally got a pic of the Moonie standing on it's own in the soft silt. Bikesploring along Nine Mile Creek in the MN River Bottoms. Other Fat bikes had been by earlier. Tried to ride across the creek at a thin spot, but it was like knee deep quicksand, not even the BFL's had enough float for that. It was worth taking a shot though.

    If you do not want 100 questions, SMH, LOL, WTF, high-fives, "can I touch it?", people videoing/photoing you, or to talk to anyone, do NOT do a 100 mile road century with a fat bike.

    I did the Seagull Century on the Eastern Shore of Maryland that starts from Salisbury University and goes out to Assateague Island on the Atlantic with my Vertigo fat bike, shod with Surly Black Floyd tires and 20 psi. I ended up getting 2 flats from stupid tiny thorny balls at Assateague when I rode off the path and into the grass to check out the wild ponies. I replaced one tube (which eventually reflatted), but kept topping off my tires until the end of the ride (36 miles later).

    I have problems with my knees and IT band after about mile 50 of any biking event I do, and this was no exception. At that point, it was a struggle, but I managed to finish. I didn't smash any records, but was just happy to git'r done. My buddy Zack pulled me in for the last 13 miles of the ride.

    Great ride, sir! Sounds like you had fun.

    Honestly, I got similar treatment at the Arlington County Fun Ride and that was only about 17 miles.

    That's Buck-fitty Poncho Man. Not sure what his superpowers are, but I'm guessing they involve acquisition of rain gear at reasonable prices.

    No offense intended to anyone in the photo. It is early enough that I think I'm funny.

    Indeed. That section of trail has some very nice brambles along the trail's edge. It is hard to make it through without losing a little blood.
