    Snow has completely disappeared in a little over 1 week. Trails are drying up nicely.

    I saw a few go-pro's attached to a few racers, so my money is on the answer to your question, being yes!

    Exploring near home

    A short ride this a.m. before work. I was a bit late getting out due to howling winds, blowing snow, and low 20s F after the 70's we saw last week. Too stubborn to turn the furnace back on. Pics of Spruce Mtn, a well-woodpeckered wood, and the remains of a barbed wire fence - strangely, only the section between these two trees has survived.

    Went out after work and discovered a few new trails and started pushing the Pugsley a bit more. Really loving the fat tyres.

    Enjoying the unusually warm weather (in the 20º+C range) and still riding on the Floyds.

    Deliberately taking the wrong path makes familiar places new again



    There's a line there, but I wasn't game with Floyds on the bike. (Steeper than it looks)



    Looking for shade for the first time this year.



    Oil rigs parked off Invergordon.



    Just under 100 years ago that was a huge naval base, and the water was covered with battleships and cruisers.



    In 1915 one of the cruisers exploded with the loss of nearly 400 men. Also killed were school children who were on board to watch a film at the ship's cinema.



    From 'The Sea Chaplains' by Gordon Taylor (1978)

    'A week before Christmas the Natal proceded to the Cromarty Firth and anchored in a depth of 8 fathoms between Cromarty village and Invergordon. On the afternoon of 30 December, not long after several lady guests, including QARNNS sisters, a male civilian and some children, had arrived on board to see a film show, a terrific explosion occurred, followed by several lesser internal explosions, and a severe fire bean to rage below. The Natal slowly heeled over to port and lay on her beam-ends while some members of her company escaped into the water, and then she completely capsized. The cpalain Algernon Sidney Osborne Sweet was among the 390 who died.


    Very few bodies were recovered.

I went an alternate route and got lost for a while (did I mention the dark/fog and having to take off the glasses so I could "see"?).

    But the Fat front worked great! It has a weird pushing sensation on hard ground, but I only noticed it on the flats. In the twisty rocky mess it hooked up great and was amazing on the off camber loose descents. I might have to put the gears on it... the climbs were a bit to cardiac - but it will help me get less fat.

    I will be putting the parts onto a lighter frame this afternoon/evening and will be ready to squish!
    And now it is 2 pounds lighter - Drilling and tubeless next.

    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    On today's ride I spotted this superb interpretation of a super proto fatbike





    I amazed it didn't set the market on fire, what with the long range beer tank...

    That thing is hilarious. No brakes, possible jet engine(!), and to top it off - reflector on the front wheel. Y'know, for safety.

    1300 meters climb, 7 hours, off-the-shelf mukluk. i like how stable is the climb. The tires are no good for rocks (duh).
