    JBuzz thanks :-) the wheels are stock and came on the bike, a gen 2 Cooker Maxi. With regards to your previous comment about going tubeless I tried to set them up this way but my LBS found it very difficult due to the lack of space inside to secure the tyre. Have you tried lighter inner tubes? You're probably find, as all Charge Cooker owners, that the weight of the bike is counteracted by the perfect geometry and that you will not have any complaints once you go out and hit the trails - incredible bikes..

    Fattingham:




    Then my chain overshifted into 1 and fell behind the cassette, stupid plastic thingy be-damned:



    Funny XO because I've adjusted my L limit about 4 times and thought it was pretty tight. I realized after getting home that shifting was all off because it was the first ride in the COLD. After spending half an hour freeing it (removing the wheel and then pulling with both hands worked), it jammed again a few minutes later! I was mad. Ride ended well luckily in a huuuuge field of 6 foot tall common mulleins:



    I shopped really hard for a Night Train Bullet on Monday but chickened out. This mechanical failure motivated me to order one this morning. Hoping I have better luck with it!

    "Stupid plastic thingy" saved your spokes! a small derailleur adjustment will prevent it from happening again.

    First snow in the Scottish Borders, first time out in it on the fat bike :-)

    Daily fatbike pic thread-22882681360_b3cae4d20b_c.jpg

    Out for the first time in the snow and ice on the fat bike I picked up a couple of weeks ago, beautiful day and great fun.

    Looking forward to more snow!

    First tubeless outing...

    Finally got the Bud and Lou's tubeless on DTswiss BR 710. All is well out east (Bridgehampton Long Pond behind). Happy Saturday indeed.

    First snow in the Detroit area! We rode along the river to the brewery, ate and drank too much, and got pretty soaked on the way home. I'm loving the IGH and tubeless- sit and spin right up a snowy hill (albeit with considerable power modulation). It was awesome!

    We rode that last weekend including crooked pond. That's a great little loop. The rail trail is really good with the fat bike given the soft sand.
    We rode Hither woods in Montauk today 9.5 mile loop on serpent back and Paumanok Path.
    Great looking bike.

    The snow pics are coming thick and fast now.

    Anyone got any tips for getting rid of the blue tinge while taking the pic? Is there a filter that could be used?

    If the scene is lit with somewhat blue light, a blue tinge is expected. If you look at ~Jb's image above, you can see that at work. Generally, you're looking at a blue tinge, as that is the colour of the light coming from the sky, except where a bit of sunlight sneaks in to light some of the scene. Where you've got the yellow sunlight present, you can see the objects it lights have a more "normal" colour: that light is more balanced between the blue light from the sky and the yellow from the sun. Sun at an angle on a snow bank is the classic for showing this: the side in shadow is lit by blue sky and looks blue, the side towards the sun looks yellow like the sun, the middle near the top looks "white" as it's got the perfect balance between the two coloured light sources, in between you've got graduations between the colours.

    However, the auto colour-balance that adjusts the rendering of the sensor into an image file will adjust the image colours. In some, you can see the sunlight presence throwing the colour balance off a little, with somewhat of a cyan tinge leaking into the snow. The second image where you have the sun making the trees "red", you can see the processing shift to green to "balance" the colour resulting in tinting the snow green. The top image has the snow pretty much the correct colour for that time. The bottom image looks pretty close to "true" as well: you can see the blue in the snow farthest from the bike this side of the treeline, while closer to the camera you can see the snow colour change as it gets different amounts of the sunlight peaking over the trees. As enough of other colours are present, it can throw the colour balance off. You can see the third image has a tiny cyan/green shift and the fourth a tiny magenta/red shift (I'd have to load it and measure the values to see for sure).

    To avoid false shifts, in most cameras you can turn the colour-balance from "auto" to a fixed setting to match the light source the scene is lit with. "Sunlight"/"daylight"/"5000K" will usually give the most accurate colour rendering outdoors; then on the computer, you can adjust it to make it look the way you "saw" it at the time you took the shot (a lot of software has an Auto-Colour feature that will tempt to adjust colours; sometimes this makes it better). Tungsten would be used for typical residential interior lighting, but that can be thrown off with all of the different colour-temps of CF and LED lights out these days.

    (in looking at the EXIF data for ~Jb's images, I didn't see a colour balance setting, so his Nexus 6 may not have the ability to select a fixed setting)
    Crazy on this ship of fools...

    Warren. NWS was saying we were supposed to get 4" yesterday, and it seems accurate. It's gorgeous.

    The sun.... Just kidding. I'm not sure of any filter, could try the flash but I think that would wash out the background.

    Totally depends on the camera.

    You can try an 81a filter. The 81b or 81c are also useful, give stronger results.

    But... it really depends on the camera, its sensor, how it handles "auto" vs daylight light balancing.

    Generally, and in simplistic terms, cameras try to adjust a scene for a tone of medium brightness. Scenes that contain very bright and vast areas (ie, snow, white sand, bright overcast sky), will tend to be somewhat under-exposed. Most cameras allow for a corrective "exposure factor" to be set. You can try a plus 2/3 to even plus 1-2/3 exposure increase (or plus 1/2 to plus 1-1/2 depending on the camera).

    Getting the exposure more dialed in will also help with color. We're not accustomed to seeing medium blue snow. When the snow is more brilliant, close to pure white, the colors will "seem" more correct. Its a mind visualization thing.

    So to recap -
    *yes a filter, 81 series a, b, and c in order of strength.
    * try adjusting white balance on the camera, if you're camera has adjustment
    * try upping the exposure with an over-ride, which will just look better

    One last thing... some cameras (better ones, SLR's) have a "custom white balance". If yours has that, its fairly easy to take a picture of white snow, and use that as a reference for the "custom" setting. The camera will take the bluish scene and correct it as the stored "custom" setting. Again... its camera dependent.

    PM if you want more info

    I had for my 29er already, so tried it on the Fat, it does a great job considering its not wide enough, l always use it on wet rides (common here in Switzerland) and wont bother getting a fat mudguard.

    I will take a pic from above to show the width, and post later.

    EDIT: and the pic, it actually looks better than what it is, but you can just see the tyre (Ground Control 4.6 on 90mm rim) is wider than the guard, so l still get a little wet/dirty but not totally soaked/mud covered. I would reckon it'd be perfect for a 4" tyre, and it is fully adjustable (position & seat post size)



    Oh, it does get skinnier towards the front, but then its just your legs that cop it, and they cop it from the front anyway.

    Back when I got my fat bike. There weren't really many 5 in offering on the market other than the Moonlander. Today it still holds it own. I have upgraded a ton of parts to it and I still love the bike.

    Looks like most of the Colorado guys rode North Table Mesa this past weekend. I on the other hand made a relatively bad choice and rode Marshall Mesa. Bad only because I got started too late and Friday night's snow had already started melting by the time I got to the top, which turned my snow ride into a mud ride unfortunately. That, and the wind was howling about 40 mph. Between the 20 lbs. of mud on the bike and the headwind, I got a hell of a good workout. Regardless, it was a blast!

    On vacation this week, with a goal to ride every day. Hopefully that will translate to a few more posts here...

Bad only because I got started too late and Friday night's snow had already started melting by the time I got to the top, which turned my snow ride into a mud ride unfortunately. That, and the wind was howling about 40 mph. Between the 20 lbs. of mud on the bike and the headwind, I got a hell of a good workout. Regardless, it was a blast!

    On vacation this week, with a goal to ride every day. Hopefully that will translate to a few more posts here...

    Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 2011
