    Trail maker- still infatuated with your bike..... And I've had people scratching their heads on downhill speed achieved on the fat bike. I believe that its due to weight ad traction!!

    Lewy- AWESOME Picts!!

    Enjoyed a nice fatbiking-session on dry trails in my backyard in Arvika, Sweden. Hopefully the summer continues like this.

    The pics on the trails are not so exotic but shows some typical swedish trails and terrain in contrast to all the beautiful beaches and nice mountains shown elsewhere in this tread.

    Say...

    Send me a big bag of money and I'll build you one! Har. The last trail on this ride loop is a real corker. All downhill for a mile or so. Tight then fast, twisting, rolling, rocky, rooty classic rocking through the woods Eastcoast track. The guy behind me - on a 6" travel Enduro - was impressed with how the fat one was tracking. He was the only one keeping pace, and liked how it looked.

    I'm hoping to get back to a project that will make it even more mondo down-hillable. I need to get back to that...
    Most people ply the Well Trodden Path. A few seek a different way, and leave a Trail behind.

    ... and if we just ... Baby Pugsley

    A new Pugsley has been born.

    A pause to pose for a picture during its first ride today:

    It's a 200mm Shimano Ice Tech. I CNC'd a new adapter for it because the Shimano version didn't fit right.

    Old on New

    The shifter on my new Pugsley came from my first MTB. It's a Simplex shifter from my 1987 Peugeot Crazy Horse (RIP). Made in France. Works slick. Besides, I really liked that old bike and enjoy being able to still use one of its components.

    Daily fatbike pic thread-img_0391.jpg

    I like to ride a bike for a while before finishing the handlebar setup. Just in case I need to tinker with any of the setup. Eventually, it will have cork grips, maybe a little cotton bar tape, and shellac.

    Daily fatbike pic thread-fatboy-1-stp.jpg

    I just bought this baby 3 weeks ago and it is the most amazing thing I have ever experienced on 2 wheels. I hope to pick up the language of the fatbiker pronto and learn to get the most of this incredible lightweight beast. So far I have been hitting the beach as I live right by Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne, and have 20 miles of uninterrupted beach to trash. There aren't many fatties over here ( I know, we're always behind the rest of the planet) so every time I take it out, people freak. I've even been stopped by the cops just so they could get a good look at it. Look forward to getting into some XC - we have some good trails on the outskirts of town. Just gotta get my F100 back on the road so I can get to them trails. In the meantime, the sand is more than enough action for now!

    Thanks Steve! The pony is in the middle of a rebuild - a New Orleans car that survived Hurricane Katrina...it was loaded with Louisianna silt and sand and so far has had a new floor, drivetrain and still needs a trunk floor and 2 rear quarters before it gets new paint. So it'll just be fattie pics for a while LOL.

    Is that one of those Australian MURU brand Fat bikes? Sorry I can't tell what make it is. It could be a Pugsley Maybe? How do you find that your bike tracks across the sand on the beach? is it tough going or moderate pedaling?

    How many teeth do you have on your front sprocket? It looks tiny like mine.

    👍 It's a Fatboy and it goes great over the sand - even the fluffy stuff - though you have to drop the air to about 8 to not stall in the real fluffy stuff. I find even just leaving it at 20 still gets you across most sand and then back onto the road...

    Tiny twenty two.

    This is my bikepacking rig (=weight), it's hilly around here, speed isn't my thing, and my knees aren't the best any more. The cranks are 170, instead of the 175 on my other bikes. The gearing range I get with the 1x9 seems satisfactory to me.

    There is already blood flowing from elbows and knees... I had already done 7 x 16" bike races and won them all (apart from the one against my 7yr old son), the fatbike race was a serious race for "show".

    We have had a bit of rain lately but not for the last couple of days so I ventured out to see the trails. I was able to flatten out some of the ruts left by the people who have been out tearing it up.

    Today was a crummy day to hit the trails so I figured I'd hit a couple LBS to see what they had going on. Ended up riding to Paramount Cycles and Chain Reaction Cycles here in Anchorage. Sorry for the crummy cell phone pix.
