    Here's my new toy! I've taken in out a couple times and love the grip and climbing ability of these tires!

    A large number of Fatties on the 2010 Simpson Desert Cycle Challenge (ironically, the Great Victoria Desert Cycle Challenge as the Simpson was flooded).

    I was thinking the same when I saw that pic.

    Great minds, etc.

    Completely redid my drivetrain today finally. My old chain can't even be measured on my Park Chain Checker.. goes past 100% Haha.

    e.Thirteen 33t Guide Ring
    Wipperman ConneX 908
    SRAM PG-990 11-34t Redwin

    My old cassette and chain are supposed to be silver! Winter and Spring mud have made it completely black.

    Arctic Creek - Cripple R. Solstice Ride

    This is the second year I've done this 44-mile loop around the time of the summer solstice. This year it was June 18-19th - Sunset 1:46 am, sunrise 4:19am. I left around 11 pm to ensure I was at the high point approx. at sunset. Got back home just after sunrise, six hours later. I picked June 18th because there was a minus tide for good beach cruising on the way back at about 2:30 am, plus the forecaste of a tailwind for the last 13 sandy miles. It's nice when a ride goes according to plan. This is my favorite longer Nome-area loop: approx 20 miles of maintained gravel road, 11 miles of rough double track and stream crossings, and 13 miles of beach. No bears this year, but I did see a baby seal on the beach. I was too slow to get photo, so had to settle for his tracks. The unrecognizable black dot on the water is the seal. The buildings belong to the GPAA Cripple River mining camps, a tourist operation. The old dredge was abandoned in the late 80s. I used to work on it occasionally as a summer job to pay for college. Cheers

    Say, could someone tell me how to place text under each photo as a caption?

    First, nice shots!

    As to the captions, instead of uploading/attaching the pics to the post, you need to host them elsewhere (Photobucket/Picasa/Flickr/etc.), then post the links in IMG tags. You can then sprinkle captions among the IMG tags. Try looking at a quote of a post with captioned pics (like one of coastkid's posts) as a guide. HTH.

    What kind of grips/barplugs are those ?
    I am looking for a pair like them to match my DK pedals and DaBomb headset, but can't find them.
    A local chopper/cruiserbikeshop had them (or similair ones) , but don't sell them any longer...

    Tnx in advance !

    Went exploring some trails unkown to me on the Pugs just before the heavy rains came yesterday.

    Thanks for the year-round fat inspiration, all!

    I really like that fatbike frame. But what's up with the ape hangers on the Cannondale?

    Thanks MiniTrail. Helps a lot.

    We'll have the part ways on "missing snow." seven months of it is enough for me. I'll be ready for it when it comes, say around October.

    I think the 907 frame is orange is awesome!
    The reason I have those bars on the lefty is because it's my commuter/all mountain bike. I ride my bike to work everyday and I prefer a much higher bar than most people. Usualy I would use a riser but the longer sterring tube for the leftys are $80+ and don't give the amount of rise I want, also no one carries them locally. So I spent $35 instead for these bars that have a huge rise in them and it set my grips right where I like them. I know they're funny looking but I'm much more comfortable and I don't have any problems with handling with the level of riding I do. Mostly easy single track riding with a few paved trails on my commute and when out on the downhill single tracks I haven't noticed any problems even on the advanced trails. I guess I'm used to it.

    It was a great ride. The light was incredible. I thought the shots came out pretty good considering the cheap point-n-shoot camera and the clueless photographer. Glad you liked them. And thanks for the pointers.

    Two Fat Family

    I took these about a month ago before all the rains brought out the foliage.

    The Pardner's Fat -- demo saddle...still dialing in.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/11596590@N08/5868013842/" title="WD's Fatback by u.jeanne, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5228/5868013842_c41e52c008_b.jpg" width="729" height="617" alt="WD's Fatback"></a>

    My Fat -- this spot is tough to get to now due to tree and brush growth.

    Just so you don't think it's all graffiti in the city -- actually, in the upper part of the below shot, there's a fence with a paved trail high on the other side. The fence sits atop a concrete retaining wall -- grafitti is just to the left of this shot. I did a hike-a-bike to get up there back in early May. Now the hill is clogged with brush, mosquitoes, ticks....

    MM, I've loved all of your bikes, but this one is just about perfect. How did you convince yourself to sell the rest of them for this beaut?

    Sold 'em all out of necessity to fund this one. A philosophical sorta shift, too: trying to simplify my life in every way. Even bicycles.

    Off Season Riding in "Bush" Alaska...

    I bought my Mukluk in May so that I might join a friend of mine on the Susitna 100 next year. I did not realize I would ride it so much even before the snow flies. Here are some pics from near Aleknagik, Alaska where firm tundra and old roads from a long-gone cinnabar mine make off-season riding possible...
