    First real ride on my fatty

    I'm a little late on the posting, but I was incredibly happy with my first ride. Very impressed that I could get up some rocky, snow covered portions... This is Marshall Mesa, between Denver and Boulder, about a week or so ago... Just after they opened up the new bike trail (uh maybe some hikers too) under a major highway...

    Called A Fat Bike Audible...

    Great ride last night in DeKalb, IL. Light snow, good temps, so someone called an audible!

    It started to snow today, but not very much yet. But most of the ground was frozen, so we had a very nice trip.

    Bars are Satori Minotaurs, but I have an identical set called One23 Bull Bars so it is likely a generic bar with different brand names applied.

    They are very comfortable and I now have them on 3 bikes. I used them in the World 24 Hour Solo Champs because they are comfortable.

    So they are like a North Road or a Nitto Albatros, turned upside-down?

    Pre ride of Chenango Valley State Park;

    Home of the Central NY World Fatbike ride next Saturday.





    We had 8" of sweet powder late last week, but now it is in the 30s and melting fast. Hopefully it will all be gone for Saturday, because these are some of the toughest snow conditions you will find. Heavy wet melting snow cone snow with little grip and sloppy wet where it had all melted. You need low pressures to climb, but that kills you on the flats or snowless ground. VERY high rolling resistance means very short mileage to whoopage. Lots of fits, slips, and starts, and not conducive to high mile group rides.

    And yet, we broke in two brand-ee new Borealii on this ride, and christened three new Fatnoobs. John on the left was the only skinny rider, and these conditions definitely worked to his advantage. As for myself, I found the apres ride libation was just the ticket for these tough conditions, and so moved the schedule forward and started imbibing early! "Kentucky Tap Water."

    I have some sets of original North Road bars. I used to ride with those but prefer a more parallel bar because it allows a narrower bar with the same leverage, and I think it's easier on the wrists on a rigid bike. (I usually ride singlespeed so I probably haul on the bars more than a geared rider).

    I've just looked at the Nitto Albatros. Nice sweep back on those, looks like a bigger version of the Minotaur with a wee bit less drop, and probably most people would prefer the extra width over the Minotaur.

    Edit: just looked at the Satori site. Looks like they have renamed the "Minotaur" as "The Smooth Drop".

    Looking forward to meeting you on Saturday John! Rode it with snow on the ground last year, hope to see what it looks like without snow this year.

    Yeah, Global Fat Bike Day in upstate NY.
