    Hundies from ChoppersUS. The tire's pretty snug in the Pugs' stays, but I really like them.

    Fat Tire Ballerinas

    This is our Fat Tire Ballerinas (ad hoc biker gang in Whitehorse, Yukon). As you can see, a lone male snuck onto our group ride.

    A bunch of bike chicks cycling together. I'm not sure if one should envy or pity that lone male.

    Below zero centigrade is too cold for toes, or not?
    What about balance? It looked to me as to unstable that I stopped thinking about it...

    I thought about similar built but I bought at the end http://mur.rajce.idnes.cz/PUG/ and bent I use only in lower snow http://mur.rajce.idnes.cz/2009-12-19...a_cyklostezka/ [-14°C, Schwalbe IceSpiker, the same Answsers You have]

    Nah, not very deep and I was close to home. Worst case I would have to wade in to rescue the dog, then go home wet. I definitely considered the possibility before moving on.

    Smile Checking in from Norway

    Most of these are taken on or around our "farm" in western Norway. I've only recently purchased the Pugs and unfortunately conditions have not been ideal; either very deep, powdery snow or slick ice on all of the trails and service roads. We have some better hard pack conditions today but it is coming down fairly thick at the moment, so I am on my way out the door!



    Pugsley on tractor duty



    The road down to our boathouse.



    From our dock. No rideable beaches here!



    Signposts for cycle route 1, also part of the North Sea Cycle Route.



    Tough going in all the fresh powder.





    And time to turn around at the water's edge.

    Slow going this morning... fresh snow. Had to see how / where I could ride.
    Almost easier in the woods without having anyone walked or skied where I needed to go...

    Blizzard conditions yesterday in Southern New England. Spent the day shoveling and snowshoeing. This morning brought bluebird conditions. Here's the Fatback in its native environment.

    Saturday I started out at the Garden Drive in, there were some footprints in the snow, but it wasn't packed down, and was really slow going.


    I fought through the pain in my knee and after a few miles it went away, I stopped at the old Train Station.


    Old Train Bridge across the Creek.


    An Antique International Farm Tractor.


    S.C.I. Retreat


    A stop at a boat launch.


    Would you believe there was a guy out on the River in a Canoe!


    I found a Million Dollars on the side of the road!


    I made it 8 miles one way, had a cup of Coffee and what tasted like the best Bannana Nut Muffin the World! Then the long trek back to the truck.

    Does that front fender fit turned round the other way? Seems like it was give more coverage from road slop coming up if the longer bit fit under the down tube.

    I tried it the other way, and it was so long it was rubbing the tire, I'm thinking about bending the bracket just enough so I can mount it the right way.

    Spent an hour riding on Lake Mendota here in Madison today. Need to adjust my layering some more.

    Probably going to take off the front rack and put on some Epic Designs bags for storage. Had a blast out there today!

    wasn't so pleasant or fun though a rear flat in km 8 of 30 made it very unpleasant...you got some mud too eh?...I never tried that until today...the added weight on Larrys wasn't pleasant either.

    Action pics weren't shoot with my camera...will try to get them tomorrow.

    A few miles in to a short Saturday trip.




    Moo



    I waited as I ate some dried cranberries and granola, but no Marmots came to cross.



    Close, but so far... Actually, not that far. Just a few miles left.



    Ahhhh... Maroon Lake and the Bells. Not many get to see this spot in the winter.

    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.

    That is so sweet, Frosty! Can I pick your brain about the Bar Mitts? If not, no biggie, and thanks for posting those pics. If so... Would you buy those Bar Mitts again? Trouble getting in/out or shifting? What temps do you ride with them on the Pugs? I've seen so many brands - and home made versions - just confused about what would work well here in CO. Thanks and peace.

    JSD, I don't think you need them for what we ride. A couple weeks ago my fingers were still toasty in my Pearl Izumi Amfibs after 4 hours of below zero. But what you do need are some of these:

    Heh... I agree, for the most part. But there are times, when I'd prefer to not have bulky gloves and might prefer the mitts. Like -22 with wind chill...

    And what am I supposed to get.. the XTR brakes.. or the grips.. or the bar? I might call up James (BS) and ask him if he can make me something sweet... I'll ride this stock one for a bit and see what I would change.

    Thanks JSD.

    Pogies are great. Bar Mitts are a very good brand. I like the neoprene. I can ride without gloves at zero, but not for long as the tops of my hands get a bit cold and the neoprene rubs back and forth on that spot. With a small set of North Face Windstopper gloves, I am cooking at any temperature. I have used them in (-21F). I would buy them again. I like them alot and they are my first pair. Moose Mitts are also a valued brand. They have a bit more space for some food and a pocket for a hand warmer I guess. They also have a shell that people believe would stand up to trees and such a bit better. Too much for me. I can put a sleeve or two of cliff blocks in them. Carried my sunglasses in one a bit the other day, but they got in the way after a bit.

    No trouble shifting and braking as you can just wear your standard mountain biking gloves. Nothing gets in the way for Gripshift anyway. I can't see triggers being an issue. I went over the bars on Saturday going pretty fast. I came out of the Mitts just fine, but did leave a glove behind in one. That would be typical for my "system" as the gloves I use are intended to come off very, very easy. I have it so I can choose to pull my hand out of the pogie with the glove or without the glove based on the circumstances. No issue with getting your hands stuck. They are also great for braking as that can be troubling with bigger gloves. I find they are great for commuting as well. I use the same gloves that I use for hours of riding in -20F and for commuting in the morning at 25F. They stay on the Pugs all winter.



    And all that aside, they are just sort of fun. They are people pleasing. They will add to your "hardcore level" street cred. More people will say, "Man, you are crazy!". "Hey everyone, this guy over here is freaking crazy!"



    Too many words... I best throw in another pic.

    JSD303, I love my Bar Mitts, but they're very temperature dependent. Are you at less than 20F often? I had a buddy take my bike for a spin while at an ice race the other day, he thought they were electrically powered =P

    Hand/shifting maneuverability is plenty with thin full finger bike gloves on.

    Drew Diller - Thanks for the mitts response. Much appreciated. I kinda figured there would be days they would be way overkill - and days in CO where they would come in handy. I think the fact that they can go on and off the bars pretty quickly would make them useful and a great thing to pack in my uber camelbak just in case.

    gomez - I never tire of seeing your Pugs - clean and beautiful. Those Mitts look awesome, too. I'm thinking about throwing racks on the pugs for fenders and for carrying stuff. I usually use a big camelbak when riding, but I could see distributing some of that weight front and rear on racks could be useful.

    Fat bikes rule!!!

    I too recently bought some Bar Mitts,not that it is often that cold here to need them in Scotland (-18C during the freak cold snaps) but for wet weather riding on Beaches,
    Damp wet days on the coast feel colder than dry frosty -C days,
    I can just wear thin liner gloves and have toasty hands, there ace

    I never seem to be able to pedal hard enough to lift the front high enough. I know it's a timing thing but I always get it wrong.

    The closest I got was while drunk.

    A beautiful southern desert day. About 40F start, nearly 60F by end of ride. In the first shot you can see the road I rode back (just above stem) and the arroyo full of deep soft sand I was floating blissfully along. Trailhead is at the right end of the closer line of rocky hills.

    I feel fat in New York City

    Crappy cell phone picture:




    Overlooking the Lasker Ice Rink, on top of Harlem Hill in the North Wood of Central Park. It was almost like not being in a city of 8 million people for a while this morning...



    Kinda-fat bike:

    Surly 1x1=11
    24" Large Marge Rims
    Felt Berm Master tires, 24x3"
    Red: MUni pedals, Oury grips, THE fender, Salsa QR seatpost clamp, Surly 1x1 hubs, bottle cage & Pake top tube pad (a little salute to hipsters).
    GoPro HD cam mounted to the stem, but I haven't had a chance to mess with the videos I took yet.

    Lessons learned for today:
    - too much air in tires
    - I ride for 2+ hours but all of the grime comes from the last 2 blocks to my apartment
    - need another bottle cage

    First Ride

    New Pugs and new to Fat Bikin'. 2 hr.'s and 14 miles of a mix of logging roads, snowmobile trails, snowshoe trails, and pavement. Temp. was a balmy 8 degrees.

    Blairadam forest, Kelty, Scotland - Sunday morning dog walk/ride..

    Initially bought as a single-speed, but now fitted with gears! The fat tyres make a real difference as to what I can ride and what I've got to walk/push! I mainly follow the horse trails which are usually churned up. With the Pugsley I can clear section which I normally sink up to my rims on the 29er. Not played about with tyre pressures too much, but there is definitely an increase in grip. The dog enjoys our trips into the woods too!

    My camera still isn't playing along out on the trail, but here's one at home with "the good camera." All ready to go for the Arrowhead. I'll have some food and a few other things on me under layers, but other than that everything is tucked away on the bike this year.

    A couple from Yesterday's ride. First ride since I managed to stuff Larry in the back on my Carver 29er.
