    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
    Disclaimer: I run Regular Cycles (as of 2016). As a profiteer of the bicycle industry, I am not to be taken very seriously.

    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.
