    The poor Pugs. She has been watching the Ice Cream Truck head out the door all winter. She finally got a chance to stretch her legs yesterday on some local singletrack. I forgot how much I loved this bike. Looks like I need to plan a little bike-packing adventure!

    Phat Cactus, the Pugz says, either way, you're going over the bars cause I didn't get to play all winter long!!

    Looks like a nice trail ride was in store!

    Hehe Banshee! The guys sitting on their full suspension steeds at the trailhead looked at me funny as I passed by to hit the single track. I overhead some rumblings of steel, racks, and craziness coming from them. Lol!

    Sarge finds those peeps most annoying cause they are in our way on climbs in particular. I can't get enough of 3.0's on singletrack. Haven't thought about +tires/wheels for the Mayor cause the fat rides into the backcountry in search of unimproved deer trails is highly irresistible.

    Glad taking your lumps wasn't too hard on ya!

    OK, that race looks like a riot! I would have some natural "gravitational assistance" in the downhill, too (I'm fat). Might just have to organize something like that in my area! Thanks for sharing!

    No such thing as 'fat' on a cyclist.

    Long range fuel tank, maybe.

    Race was from the top of the tram down to the day lodge, something like 2200 vertical. Speeds weren't nearly as fast this year, only around 45mph instead of 55mph, big ruts formed, which wouldn't be so bad, but you couldn't see well at the top, in typical Alyeska fashion. I remember a ski day this year when I shared the lift with a girl visiting from CO who asked "is the visibility always this bad?" Yep. This race is a blast though, you get some fast speeds going. I got 9th, which was better than I thought I'd do, given how slow I was at first trying to see where I was going and then later when I crashed on a switchback (but it's snow, so who cares?). Brakes were burning like crazy coming though, haha. Top time still less than 3 minutes.

    Riding down from the Tram building to the start of the race...figuring out "holy shit, this is soft as heck" (new snow)

    Don't you love the Maxxis Minions? They're grippy AF!

    BTW, I am surprised that you could fit 4.8 in the Bucksaw. Thought the largest size you could fit was 4.0

    I rode my Bucksaw in the MDH 25 last year. Registered for the MDH 50 this year. Haven't decided if I'm riding the Bucksaw or what yet. Do you ride in the race?

    I too have a Bucksaw now, just picked it up a few weeks ago in Bismarck. Very cool you raced it in that race. I haven't done the race yet; my son was talking about the 4x25 mile segment relay last year and I was going to do one leg, but it never came to fruition.

    Congrats on the Bucksaw! Great bikes. You should sign up for the race. My son and I and 2 buddies are doing the 50. Will be camping at the Medora Campground!

    They are really grippy. I especially enjoy the side knobs and how far you can lean the bike over. Quite a difference from the FBN that was on the rear previously.

    These are the 4.0 Minions. The Bucksaw is not likely to clear the 4.8.

    I'll have to look into the dates -- I already have a good chunk of my summer booked up with holidays and other commitments.

    And yep, am already deeply in love with my Bucksaw!

    IDK if you've been to Nockamixon in PA, very flowy and fast. I lean the hell out of my fattie and pick up a lot of speed. Handles a hell of a lot better than my 29er.

    Ok, thanks for that. I wonder why they do it in August...the Badlands are usually hot as hades that time of year. Hence the 6:00 AM start I suppose.

    My Fatboy Carbon with Vee Apache Fattyslick.. super fun "townie" mode, Oveja Negra bag for beers. The 4.5" Fattyslicks measure roughy 10mm wider than the stock Ground Controls 4.6" tires, but they fit fine with no clearance issues.
