    I tend to narrow my bars and add bar ends on all my bikes. Where I'm at here in Colorado EVERY ride starts with a climb. I need all the leverage I can get.

    They are Outerdo Carbon Fiber ends I got off of Amazon. Took a risk because they are inexpensive, but I've been really happy with them and very much like the contour on them in my hand and the cutout where my thumb rests.

    On vacation this week, so I'm trying to get a ride in every day. Today's ride was at Apex Park. Long a favorite of mine, today I learned that "Apex" is actually Latin for "Scary a$$ed, slick as snot ice ride from the gates of Hell".

    There were dogs and hikers stacked up like leftover Halloween pumpkins in the switchbacks as it was too slick to walk.

    The picture where my track goes off the edge is where I soiled my shorts. There is a creek about 20 feet down from this edge, with nothing but the twigs you can see to keep me from the snow covered rocks below. It was cold enough that had I gone completely off the edge my carcass would probably been preserved until the spring thaw, save for the occasional tidbit gnawed on by one of the local mountain lions. I managed to only tweak my knee a bit, and rip off part of my thumbnail in a desperate attempt to gain purchase on a hunk of ice covered rock.

    I'm not gonna lie, I ended up walking a few sections, but that was as treacherous as riding, maybe more, so I let more air out of the tires and crawled along.

    Still, it was better than working!

    Thanks for that BansheeRun, not really injured as much as rattled. I've ridden technical singletrack for more than 20 years and had my share of biffs over that period, but tend to be more aware of my mortality as I grow older. The FatBoy was a present to myself on my 60th birthday back in August, and I have to say that riding the fatbike is both increasing my fitness and honing my technical skills. I'm cleaning a lot of sections lately that have slowed me up over the past few years. I just need to make sure I don't get too cocky and hurt myself beyond the normal bumps, bruises and contusions. I know that chicks dig scars, but my wife won't give me much sympathy if I do something stupid.

    Mitt, a wise approach, indeed! My fatty was my bd present to myself on my 50th. Nothing's more euphoric than lacing a pair of wheels on my bd!
    If you make the pilgrimage to Glemweird, shout out! I'll take you to the sled trails.

    By Glemweird do you mean Glenwood Springs? I've never ridden the area, just passed through on my way to Fruita or Moab.

    Some of the rolling fire roads near Laguna Seca Raceway. First time out there with the fat bike. Sand pits no problem and rolled up everything with plenty of traction.

    That would be the place! We have Glenweird, then there's Junktown!
    There's good groomed fatbiking in the area with the sled trail system.

    Trees down from a wind storm that came through before the first snow.

    Daily fatbike pic thread-20151119_194434_resized.jpg

    The dawg's nickname was "CL", cuz I kept threatening to put him on CraigsList, but he's settled down, likely because he has come to recognize my superior intellect; that and I'm the "food guy"


    Got more snow last night, heading out after work to keep it groomed; it's a tough job, but someones got to do it

    Second ride after another dusting, made my son ride skinny, kid needs a haircut; damn hippies!

    Actually, you can't! Those weeds stopped me dead in my tracks, even picking the bike up to turn it around was quite difficult, with muddy terrain at the bottom. It took me 3 tries to find a way out of that draw. Tallest tumbleweeds I've ever seen!

    I think Shelterock was trying to make a joke (Think I got it Sheltrock) comparing the tall weeds in the fist pic to what appears to be the weeds destroyed by the bike (revealing the view) in the second.

    Thanks for keeping me straight, dude. Today I took my brand-spankin new Night Train Bullet out for a short ride on a section of undeveloped commercial real estate I call Erie Fat Track.

    Looks like fun times Thomcom.

    Wish we could get BD bikes over here in the UK.
    They sure do have some good looking bikes regardless of price.

    We might not have BD bikes over here but we got actual snow last week.
    Well 3/4" of it that come down during the night and managed to hang around till all of 7am !!!!

    If ya blinked ya missed it.

    Oh well there's still time yet. We've got the rest of the winter (read as next 9 months it's the UK after all)

    Thomcom yup. The sequence of the pics looked like you mowed the weeds down to show the view.
    Cheers to Fat Biker.
    I just did 4 miles with my aussi shepherd on the beach in Southampton. 58f on thanksgiving day. No wind. Amazing weather.

    Snow and ice ride after 6 inches of snow. The local fat bike community had the trail packed down right away so we had to do a little freeriding.

    A day later with the holiday, but I was able to get out in the the snow and 20* temps to hit some hill intervals in my neighborhood. This hill is the highest point in my town and normally there is a 360 degree view of the plains, DIA, Downtown Denver, Pikes Peak and the entire northern front range including the Flatirons and Longs Peak. yesterday (and today with continued snow), it was all pretty well obscured. Got to use my new Bar Mitt pogies though. With very lightweight gloves my hands stayed toasty warm.

    I, too, hit the cold today. It was cold.





    VEE Snowshoe XLs did well, except for one spill I took at the bottom of a fairly steep un-bermed curve. No knobs on the sides of the tire means as soon as I leaned too far, I went down and spun around like a skiing accident. Pretty fun.

    @thomcom Where did you ride? Was there much ice? I haven't gotten my Dillenger 5s in yet. I'm a little timid. I did Mt Falcon Park this week and had a few wipe outs. 😊

    Smileyboy, I had ridden Mt. Falcon a few weeks ago myself. From the east lot down by Morrison there wasn't any snow until I got up near the top. I did Apex on Monday and it was almost all solid ice by the creek. Think I'm go up a little higher on Sunday and hit Sourdough. As cold as it's been the past few days the snow should be pretty good.

    That's the Erie Single Track (eriesingletrack.com). There was no ice, only about 2-4 inches of cold dry snow. By the time I left the sun had began to expose some dirt on the north facing slopes, but it was still cold.

    While you folks are getting ready to freeze your fenders off, I was enjoying windy but enjoyable weather in Daytona Beach. The sea was bearing the foam of a giant turquoise Guinness stout, heaved against the shore as if two giant flagons had collided beyond the horizon.

    In other words, the beach was unridable, as the surf was beyond "up" with 35 knot winds blowing in from the east.

    And so, Jennifer and I did the next best thing....
