    I am starting to get used to my coaster break on the trail now, it is challenging at times but that kind of makes it fun. Am working on barspins too since I have no cables.
    I like all the pics of snow riding, I need to go north some time and try it.

    Seriously? Just a rear coaster brake? Thatís hardcore, seeing as youíre doing some loaded touring stuff from the looks of those pictures.

    Yeah, did it with acrylic paint, comes off with soap and water. I am not done yet, I am going to brand it Huffy, and put F.F.F. (F@*k fossil fuel) on the chainstay. Also something like S.R.T. (speed reduction technology) or "Shimano equipped" even though there is no shi-nay-nay on the bike.

    Pork Stacker: If things get out of control I have a plan, I will try to use my foot on the tire and if that does not work I will jump off the back of the bike and try to keep my arms and legs in tight so they do not flop around and get broke. So far everything is cool as long as I take it easy and don't head into the downhills with too much speed to begin with.

    Saw this at One on One in Downtown Minneapolis the other day. It was all kinds of awesome! The tag on the seat said SOLD.

    Awesome day to blow off the "afternoon shift" and go for a ride!





    Hard to tell that's a wheelie drop.



    Look at them big mushy tires!





    See, I don't always unconsciously stick my tongue out when riding technical features.





    A good time was had by all!

    Good day on the bike


    after a foot of snow in the last few days, snowmobiles have finally packed down the trails to make them rideable

    Probably the most enjoyable day out on the bike in 2 years. Was slowly wandering the woods on crust with some fast sled trail sections. Beach was nice but the wind was brutal...

    Did something a bit different today, rode on the fat trails at the local ski resort, a mix of single track in the woods and groomed trails (fat bikes allowed).



    Someone left some art

    Recovery Ride
    Hey;

    Last Sunday was 7" of sun warmed powder in the 30* sunshine. Thursday was Western-face-melting and all else variously crusty, and a 3rd that amount in 40* haze. Today was moderately icy on the hardpack and a super crusty 3-4" everywhere else. Howling winds here in upstate NY too, MiniTrail. 20*F with 20mph winds had me heading for the deep shelter of the craggy creek bottom. Quads still aching from Thursday's ride, so I went for a dink around. Riding all those spots where there are no trails, ya know? All the stuff the trails pass right by and no one pays attention to. No one but me, that is. There's nothing better for that kind of stuff than old creek bottom terrain. Both current wet and generations old dry beds just loaded with techy little challenges, and a Fatty is just the tool. Sweet!





    Looking for neat places to drop into the creek bed. It's Arse-over-Axle, and in we go!



    One of my current favorites; A narrow 6' high ridge in between two old beds. Lots of junk down and
    tight going, but that's the fun of it. How tight? Well... 700mm wide bars aint makin this!



    Of course, with creeks around, you have your own personal art gallery.




    Would it surprise you to find the name of this trail is Rock 'nRoll? I've already chronicled riding Boulder's 1&3 previously. Here's some face time for the "less rideable" #2.



    Hmmmm.... wonder what out-there shite I should ride over next?!

    ^^ we got another warm up this week and I hope it makes the crust more uniform. Seemed like I would just start diggin riding on top and then I'd sink :(

    Same, but ours melted down farther to mostly 3" on the Westerns & flats, a little more elsewhere. I could JUST keep rolling, mostly on top of the "styrofoam." Everywhere else it was the same crunch, but deeper. I was hopping between hard-pack and bare spots. Don't care as long as I'm out! :thumbsup:
