    Where do you have a battery for your lights? And what capacity? These two multileds must eat more than you. 8-)

    Finaly THIS looks like fatty I wanted. 8-( Pitty I had not known this before buying standard shaped frame. For snow it must be great advantage, this longer wheel base. In really loosy terain I usualy have trouble to shift my weight from rear to front tire evenly.

    Or am I wrong? Anybody tested?

    I have yet to ride this Fatty in snow. Looking forward to it!! But I have ridden it on the Beach in loose sand. I didn't notice if I was shifting my weight from front to rear though. My beach ride was captured to video....maybe you can tell from watching it.

    Also these looks nice Seat Packs | Custom Bicycle Bags - The Porcelain Rocket and OVEJA NEGRA bikepacking - Oveja Negra Bikepacking

    But all these are too small and also expensive. I wished at least 20 l under the seat and some universal belts for different loads on handlebar. So I had to persuade my friend to start producing it. This is one week testing ride with prototypes: mur | 2014-08-31-LUZICKE-kolem CR VII ? rajce.net
    mur | 2014-08-31-LUZICKE-kolem CR VII ? rajce.net
    ( This and nex few pictures are details of smaller version of seetbag: mur | Hadanky ? rajce.net )

    My friend had some older versions that are not the right way.
    Guys, what do you think?

    I ment if you have standard frame, your rear wheel bears cca 75 % of your weight and only remaining 25 is on front. With longer wheelbase - rear wheel shifted back - this could be 60 / 40, so it can help to rear wheel, not to sink into snow (sand, mud, ...).

    I have seen the video. this is not so loose IMHO. I ment the situation, when you ride and the rear wheel sinks 5 to 10 cm suddenly. Terrain like this around 1:50

    I have a Shimano "Pro" storage bottle, filled with a (2) 2c 5000mAh lipos (7.4v / 10000mAh combined). 1 turned on low beam is plenty. High beam with both on is crazy. I do that when I need to warm my hands up.

    I have on my city bike ordinary Isostar bottle with two cutouts for cables of two batterypacks. So the same solution. 8-)
    But I found, that even MickeyMouse (1x T6+2x R2) is just a way to through the chimney (as we say here). This multiled looks tha same. I use single T6 od Mickey with only central T6.
    How long you can operate your lights on the accupack? I have 2x 4800mAh. One lasts for 3 or 4 hours (cca 800 lm) or bit more than 10 hours (cca 200 lm).

    I haven't officially timed it, cause my night rides have averaged around 2-hours. I did run both on high for that amount of time, and they still had lots of charge left.

    You are wrong. Really long chainstays means you can't get your weight over the back wheel when you really need traction. The bike will spin out sooner then a bike with shorter stays. Long stays might be ok on flat beach rides but not so good in hills or soft going.

    Thanks. I have Revelate Designs for bags and Porcelain Rocket bags on the forks with Anything cages. Lots of storage. The Revelate bags are Sweet Roll, Frame bag, Gascan, Viscacha and Jerrycan. I also have the front pocket bag on the sweet roll for small items.

    Very sturdy and well made.

    Right, it looks like not so humble opinion. So at the end, I have no reason to cry, I bought standard frame. 8-)

    Pogies came out for a first wet snow ride on the Krampus. Pugsley needs some love, but getting close to fat time.

    I bought them local at a Gander Mountain or Cabellas, but they are similar to these:

    Amazon.com: Classic Accessories 78137 QuadGear Black ATV Mitts, Fits most ATVs: Automotive

    The neck for the bars is wide enough to fit over the jones bars. They are a little floppy, but for $15 they work well enough. I've also used them on my Pugsley with flat bars. I have to fold the neck down a bit before I velcro them.

    Perfect day in Ft Collins Colorado!
    About 14 degrees, 3 inches of snow and my first ride on the Farley in the snow.
    Oh, and my 45nrth Wolvhammers kept my feet nice and toasty.

    I don't know why it keeps posting my pictures sideways! Pretty annoying. Any ways no snow just cold on the coastal trail in Anchorage.
