    A full fat is in the works. It is a slow process though. I've got too many projects going at once.

    When fitting Mrs Motorman's Winter wheels today, I found one of them had a nail sticking out, so with the garage just down the road & nice afternoon, it would be rude not to

    I also posted this in the commuters forum, but decided to share it here since it involved a fat bike:

    Not a good start to the day...I entered a crosswalk in front of a truck...I had a walk symbol but he turned right into me...a small bruise on my leg but otherwise I am okay. I had my wife bring a spare wheel set to the site and managed to finish the commute. Very lucky.

    So what did I do wrong? My normal practice is that unless I get a wave from a driver in the right-hand lane, I assume that he is planning to turn right and doesn't see me (eye contact isn't good enough, since you can never be sure that the driver is looking at you and not the ice cream truck across the street.) If I don't get a wave, I either stop or go behind the first vehicle. I was in a hurry this morning and instead of my normal practice, I slowed down and gave the driver a bit of extra room.--it wasn't enough. The lesson is always assume that they don't see you and act accordingly. The fact that the driver is in the wrong does you no good if you're dead.

    Bluebird days up north...

    Temps in the 30s. Plenty of sunshine. But what the pics don't show are the 30 mph winds we've had in Nome for the past week.

    Ha!

    I've been trying to tell people that for years. Amazing that some don't see the elemental value in embracing that.

    Careful what you ask for, gomez...

    I don't need much encouragement.

    (too funny - I've been complaining lately that all my rides and pics are basically the same - tundra, gravel, a bit of beach and muskox. I've gotta figure out some ways to shake things up. Not always an easy proposition in a small, remote, Bush Alaska town, with an ultra tiny biking community.)

    Nome ride - Musk Ox free!

    Rode 30 miles today at a pic conducive pace. My only goals were to spend the day outside, get some exercise, and take a few photos of something other than musk ox. Success! Note: Little Creek Station was the first stop on the Gold Rush-era Wildgoose Railroad and was later used as the backdrop for a tourist-oriented history talk. The rail motor car resembling a small train engine was a diesel service car of some sort. The converted truck was used the haul tourists in the 50s (I think) along the old railroad bed long after the line was abandonded. (PS Gomez, this post is for you).

    BobK, great photos, something in the second one, the light and the texture of the trees maybe, gives it great atmosphere.

    VeloB, enjoyed those even though I like your muskox ones. I like the old RR stuff too.

    Agreed, except I think the 3rd shot is the winner.... there's nothing that can compare to autumn in New England.

    VeloB - I really like the musk ox shots! The Fox and railroad shots in your last post are equally awesome! Keep on sharing, because as someone mentioned, Nome is exotic to us!

    So guess what? I've got a fever and the only prescription is More Musk Ox!

    Sorry that I gave you the impression that I was being critical with my "more musk ox" campaign. The truth is the 180 degree-exact opposite. PM me your snail mail address and I'll send you some fat-bike dot com schwag to help make up for the misunderstanding....if'n you want.

    Keep up your posts and include any subject matter that you may encounter.....like the Gnomes of Nome.....maybe?

    I'm 180-degrees away from being offended. [Hey, we make a circle!] But, if you must know, I am a schwag ****. BTW It's a myth that we have gnomes in Nome. But we do have ichigoks: little fairy people who cause trouble and dance around their stone houses on the first frost of the year. Snapping pics of them, though, will probably cause flats and broken spokes.

    Up on (Nome's) Anvil Mt.

    Snow on the ground today, but not much accumulation. My tires bit through to gravel, but I'm still calling it the first snow ride of the season. Thick cloud cover muted what little color we have up here this time of the year, giving these pics the look of B&W. I kind of like the effect. The big microwave dishes are what's left of the Cold War-era White Alice DEW Line site from late 50s, early 60s. Willow ptarmigan left the wing and footprints.

    Smile John Deere vs Surly Pugsley

    I purchased this bike last year and ever since then have caught the FatBike virus. There seems to be no cure for this strange illness. It seems as though each and every ride leaves me with the biggest smile on my face. I have tried everything possible not to derive such pleasure and enjoyment from my 38.5 pound Pugs but to no avail. I even have twinges of guilt as my full suspension 21.5 pound racing machine collects dust in my garage. Perhaps this beast of a bike brings me back to my simpler childhood days and the enjoyment I derived from pedalling down my street on my used single speed bike with seemingly no worries in the world!

    Sorry I don't have any breathtakingly awesome pictures like you guys have, I'll get there eventually,

    Picked up my Pugsley Necromancer this morning and have been tooling around on it all day. Only a few 20 minute rides around town while I tried to get things figured out on it,
    then me and my Father built a bike rack to keep my pugsley and another bike in the house! All in all a great day!


    This little fella climbed on my rear tire while I was trying to find a pressure gauge; that tire has pretty great traction, but on anything paved it feels bad and makes an awful noise.


    The Necromancer as new as it ever will be! I have a second stem on there because I plan to mount a handle bar piece/ pipe so I can mount things like my GoPro, or lights,
    without crowding up the actual handle bar. It needs new pedals, and I'd like grips, and, and... Well, I can ride it like it is for a while, its a BLAST to ride even without extras!


    Here is the bike rack we put together! Its made from six foot sections of 5 1/4" PVC pipe cut in half, then screwed to the walls and floor, it isn't going anywhere! The buckle strap
    will be replaced with something different and easy to use, the chock block is staying as the Pugsley tends to roll backwards if bumped. The wood bits will be painted white , hence the blue tape.



    I'm very happy with the day, and with my new Pugsley! I test rode the thing a bunch before deciding to get it, glad I snatched it up before someone else could! I also have a set of
    barely used Black Floyd's to be used as 'road slicks' and general warm weather riding.

    I think your pictures are great (love praying mantis')

    You could eliminate the need for the strap and block by adding something like a wall hook/hanger for a ladder, mount it sideways and just high enough to get the pugsley's rear wheel off the ground (stealing this idea for my garage BTW).

    Yea, I don't think I could have asked for better from that mantis, I was glad to have been able to capture it.

    As for the bike rack, we had a small space to work within and the ceiling is low there, plus I really wanted to have the bikes resting on their rear wheel and then just secured to the wall. The one on the right is at an angle so my Pugsley is about vertically balanced so the strap on the front wheel doesn't take much force, it ended up needing a chock block though.
    There are certainly better ways to secure a bike, but in a limited space I think it works quite well.


    This morning I commuted a short-ish distance on my Pugsley, later in the day it rained heavily for a bit and then it was drizzling and I went out right after this and hit a few puddles [off road and on] and some of them were like having water shoveled at me! I'm going to need to get some kind of fender figured out... And I really need to find a different set of pedals as the crap plastic pedals it has are slippery when wet.
    I was also testing how my Pugsley handles the wet conditions, when I was on pavement and going a decent clip I pulled the rear brake [not that hard] and the wheel locked up and the Nate just slid like there was no tomorrow but I kept it under control, mostly, off road it doesn't happen like that though.
    And a new top speed of 24.87mph! Its slow, but it rolls over everything!

    I've hit 37mph on pavement with my Mukluk 2 with the Nate tires. Going downhill of course.

    This is my 2012 Fatback Aluminum up in the Canadian Rockies this year. I love this bike!

    Yeah, I love the colors, and I made the frame bag myself. Usually it's also rockin a pair of 1000 lumen magicshine headlights and a magicshine taillight, but took them off to cut some weight for the 25 mile daytime ride on the CAMBA trails. Gravity Cavity was a lot of fun as well as the 177 foot log ride.

    Lotsa critters out and about in Anchorage this time of year. Saw a large bull moose, and a bear with her 3 cubs on Sunday. Bears and Moose, etc, all getting ready to hibernate! There's also bear spray, you just can't see it from those angles. Plus other trail users like hearing a bell coming when they can't see you on blind corners.

    Thanks! The trail is still being worked on yet. We've had guy running the Mini-X working on the lower part of the ridge the past few days. The new trail we added is 1.3 miles. We got a lot accomplished on the trail day on Sunday, but theres some work to be done yet.

    Pugstigator

    Here's my half breed fat bike. A Surly Instigator built up with a Puglsey fork and Nate tire. It has a Bontrager 2.7 rear tire and a 1x9 setup.

    I finally rode my first fatbike today! All of my suspicions were confirmed. I enjoyed it immensely! It was a mere test ride at a local shop, but i got to feel those glorious tires clobber curbs, roll smoothly across rocks and grass of front yards and catch some air bunny hopping in the street. If that frame had rear disc mounts it could e a contender for the IGH crowd. I used to think that I'd like a pug, but now I know I want a pug.

    And the perma-grin is no myth! I couldn't stop smiling during or after the ride.

    The red Surly rimtape is a different color red (not matching according to my eyes). Looked a bit "cheapish" with the red anodized parts in my bike imho...

    Maybe if I change to Bud and Lou when they come available to our flat country I'll search for third party rimstrips in a matching color...

    visit a craft store or perhaps a mill end fabric store for red material as many use something besides rim strips.

    I get that, it's gotta be right. I did hear from some folks at Surly that people are installing white rim strips under the red strips. They say it gives the red a brighter more saturated color look. I have no pics or actual evidence to prove it. Not sure if that helps but I thought I'd throw it out there.

    That might be a very good solution

    The Surly red rimstrip is a bit translucent so a black toob as a "background makes it look a but darkish dull red. White underneath will change this for sure.

    So when do we get white latex inner toobs....Surly .....???

    Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. Didn't realize there was a "2012" daily pic thread.

    Here's a pic from I posted the other day while out on the Pugs and one from this a.m. with the Pugs and Moonlander hoisted up onto the rack and heading out.

    It "looked" like my Subaru should have been pulling a wheelie with all that fat back there
