    Looks like the rider on the left is attempting the classic *mask the sound of my fart with a fake cough* move, but the position of his left leg is a dead give away. I am guessing rider #6 is wise to this, as the look on his face tells me he is not impressed.

    We are all impressed, there were riders that emptied the contents of their guts into their knicks, men fainted on sand dunes, riders collapsed and when asked their name, they replied "Tuesday"... I am rider #1 on the left by the way, and ****ting my knicks was the least of my worries.

    Incredible work, Oz. So I was looking at this pic, and it looks like there were at least a few people not using fat bikes (over 3.0" tires) at this challenge. How did the skinnies do overall? I'm guessing they wished they had full fat by the end?

    There was only 2 guys who rode regular MTBs, both failed to 100% it. The bloke in the foreground changed his wheels between 29+ and fat, I can't speak for him but he miscalculated on a couple of days... the sound bet was just to run fattys for the whole event.

    Next year is apparently more soft dunes... Bring it on !

    The technique is called Tilt-Shift and I agree, turkish_sp took a great pic.

    Jones Bar alternative. Most comfortable bars I've ever had.

    Just thought I'd upload a couple of pictures of FSA Metropolis Bars. Thought you might like to see them mounted and how far they sweep back. The sweep is 45 degrees. Also had them in the Boris thread post no. 614.

    First bars I've had that haven't stressed arms and wrists. Bought these because they brought my arms back further into the cockpit. Less than half the price of Jones Bars and built really well. Light to boot. Better description in the post above.

    Not enough wide IMHO.

    I just bought wider ones from SQlab GmbH - Ergonomisches Fahrradzubehör, Testsieger, Fahrradsattel, Fahrradsättel, Fahrrad, Fahrradgriffe, Sattel For city and touring I took in fact these: SQlab 311 MTB handle bar.
    (For AM I prefer Vector from Syntace.)

    Looks similar to the Mary from On One that I have on my Mukluk. I like mine, and it did help alleviate some wrist and hand numbness issues. The Mary is cheaper, wider (685), and also well-made. Personally, I think the FSA is too narrow. If I change mine out, it will be to go wider still.

    I looked hard at the Mary and didn't like the way it looked like it went forward and then swept back. I was aiming to get into a more comfortable upright position further back in the cockpit. The last thing I wanted to do was have to spread my arms further and lean more in an uncomfortable hunched position. I've cut off a couple of handlebars that were too long for me already and the FSA saved me from that. The Mary wasn't going to accomplish what I was personally looking for.

    You know the idea was to disseminate information so that everyone one can make an informed purchase because no one piece of equipment is going to be right for everyone. This was certainly not about who has the bestest in the whole world.

    FSA was under $35 shipped to my door.

    I got the Metropolis on my Kona & Sawyer and ordered the Mary along with my Fatty. I can't tell the difference other than I like the looks of the Mary.

    Some images from my recent fatbike fishing trip on Cape York (the finger shaped peninsular at the top of Queensland, Australia.) Yes the footprints with a tyre track across them are a crocodile slide.

    Yep... know that. That's why I said "personally". Bars, like saddles, are personal choices for most. The fsa looks nice. Glad you like yours. Mary is still cheaper though, and wider. Dissemination is a super highway, btw, not a one way street.

    As we're on bars, I tried the Mary's - too narrow for my liking

    Today was a good day. Got to ride a few miles with my girl out at Kincaid then rode the hillside single track trails solo with some suds and a light.

    First long ride on my Rocky Mountain Blizzard: 16 miles, 2758 ft. Also first fatty I have ridden on dirt. Some snow but mostly frozen tread. Bike performed well. Handled great for a fatty. Able to coax the bike over roots and rocks fine. I am hooked.

    Fat Family Camping; Henry W Coe SP

    The photo quality isn't the best as this was truly a "snapshot"; I had pulled my rig off the trail to let this guy past---when I saw what his trailer was hauling (his very young son) I had to get a quick picture:

    The smile says it all; I met them again the next day in the parking lot to discover that in the photo they were heading out for an over-night camping adventure.

    Way to go Dad!

    Saturday did a nice 3 hour ride at the local trails and rode the shoreline to check the the bay area of the old Patela sawmill. Studded tires would have been nice

    I love my 2012 Raw framed Fatback. Carbon fork, Thomson, Ritchey, full Sram XO and 90mm UMAS. What a difference two weeks makes. From bikepacking in 24 degrees to biking with a -22 degree windchill and 4" of snow here in the Canadian Rockies. Riding fat all year round.

    I saw a Yampa with a broken frame at a different bike shop from where I bought my bike, 2 hours after I bought my bike.
    That frame was broke in the same spot.

    How old is your bike?
    Where did your other Yampa break?
