    BC Comes to Upstate NY

    Pacific Northwest conditions. Near 80, and humidity as high as it can get. Hanging in the air, just shy of pouring from the sky. Dark, damp, mossy, and lush. Not sure there was any oxygen in the air at all. Sweat just rolling off like a waterfall. Fatbike heaven. Everybody else was sitting on their butts. Riding at its best!

    Hey;

    Perhaps not the best post ride beer - at a robust 8%!!! - but yes, it is uber yummy for sure. In this type of condition, I'm riding mudder, the schlogger, the tractor; The Old Humvee.

    Rollin A Fatty on the Beach

    What's up my fellow fat riders! It's the end of the beach season here in NYC, but I finally got my Fatty onto the beach sands. Now, my Fatty sports 4" Spider Treads made by Innova. I keep my tire's pumped full of air since my riding is mostly on concrete and asphalt bike paths. When I hit the soft Beach with those fully pumped Spider tires, I came to an immediate full stop. Pedaling did not help at all. So, I let some air out of both tires. Got them squishy and what a difference squishy tires make! I was able to ride all over the beach! I definitely had to pedal a little harder than normal over the sand, so, there's no doubt my legs and lungs got a workout. But the biggest surprise came when I left the beach and hit the streets with those half inflated spiders! Talk about flotation! That bike floated over every pothole, every curb and every other road and sidewalk obstacle I could roll over. With the even wider footprint, the spider Treads gripped the ground like suction cups. I am blown away! Now, I am certain that my 7 speed Fatty is going to get a smaller chainring so I can have the Granny Gear. Anyway, much fun on the beach. Now, I'm waiting for the snow!

    I like how you are using the extra wide BB of your fatbike to carry your board.
    I don't think it would fit on a regular bike.

    My Fatboy's arrived - a month early!

    I wasn't expecting the a until the end of the month, but mine and my wifes Specialized Fatboys came in over the weekend!

    Now I'm behind a little - I need to build a couple of bike stands big enough for them in the basement. Need to grab that Topeak digital tire gauge too.

    This is the first year EVER I'm looking forward to winter!

    We had some rather unusual wet weather here in Phoenix that flooded out a good part of the state... perfect opportunity to try my new SS fatty in some ankle-deep mud, wet sand, and 6+ inches of water over grass and gravel. She's a tank, I couldn't get it stuck even when I tried, and that was with 45psi in the tires.

    What tires are those? I thought these tires were only rated for low pressure. My Snowshoes and my Vee8 both say 8 to 20 PSI on the sidewall.

    Or am I missing out on some inside joke?

    45psi will surely lead to loud explosions.

    'Twas sort of a typo... I meant 35psi, which is the max of what my 26x3.0 Duro Razorbacks are rated for, although the real pressure was actually closer to 32psi.

    New to fatbiking. This is my third ride and each one has been better than the last. It's been rather wet this past week, and has made for some excellent fat tire trekking fun.

    Having ridden many 26" and 24" DH downhill tires (Nokian Gazzaloddi, Arrow Racing Wide Bite, Duro Razorbacks, etc.) I would strongly advise against running them higher than 25psi, unless you weigh more than 200 pounds. The fatter the rim (and tubeless) the lower you can go pressure-wise. All those fat-volume heavy-carcass DH tires can be aired down really low without getting pinchflats (when running tubes), and are a real kick in the pants when run tubeless (if you have the patience to get them set up as such).

    Old school surly instigator converted to fat bike

    When the endomorph first came out I immediately pulled out the hacksaw and welder. I was running 24"x3" nokian tires before that

    Thanks. I had an Instigator back then and I considered doing just that to it, but I was in Oz and trying to get all the right bits was impossible.

    Add: White wheels and tyres - but, hard to find then in the snow.

    What is the tooth-ratio on your bike? & more pictures, please.

    Been to Oslo and Bergen. Multiple times to Bodø and the Lofoten. Mainly strolling through the Fjell (lots of sleeping on wet soil, which I didn't bother). One time cycling up there with a FS plus trailer. Hard. Didn't find too many ridable single trails - too steep and too rocky.

    How are trails around Trondheim, the backcountry? Are you allowed to ride on the langlauf ski-tracks? Looking for flights up there myself in January/February.

    How's the ride anyways?
