    Daily fatbike pic thread

    Let's start showing where we take our bikes.


    Rogie

    I only managed 5 metres on those rocks. Maybe softer pressure and a fat rear tyre might help - or maybe I should acquire some "skillz"

    Today's ride - Fyrish Monument. If you look at the background you'll see oil rigs.

    Loose dry tracks which made for an interesting climb. The big wheel was nice and reassuring on the descent

    It's back! Snow that is...

    The bike was cleaner when I got back from my ride yesterday than when I left. That can only mean one thing - snowbiking season is here. Just two inches or so at the 700-800 ft level, but it was enough that I had to drop tire pressure to keep from spinning out on the steeps. When I heard the crunch of snow under fat rubber I realized how much I missed that sound. Three cheers for winter! vb

    This far, Will:

    Nome AK 64° 30' 4" N - 165° 24' 23" W. You'll recall from the last election that we can see Russia from here. I sure wish they would haul off their junk and mow the grass cause it's hurting my property value. Musk oxen are as common as cows up here. A fellow rider jokingly referred to them as "cockroaches" the other day after locals complained to the newspaper they can't walk their dogs without getting charged. I still love seeing them, though. vb

    Thanks for the kind words. I am also a fan.
    It was made by Curtis Inglis out of Napa California.
    He makes bikes under the name Retrotec and Inglis.
    This was his first Fat build. I had it built with the Fat winter/29er summer mentality.

    Have not been, but would really like to—looks like very scenic country. I ask because Last Train to Nowhere is pretty famous in photography circles. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to make some snaps for us with a fatbike included for scale...

    As common as cows? But they're not domestic like cows right? Or are people tending them for their fur or something? Also, I thought they circled up when threatened, not charged. Guess I'm misinformed. I've got to get to Alaska one of these days. I feel crowded in Vermont, and it's pretty rural...

    kikinik - what handlebars are those? I like the wrist angles of my Space Bar and my H-Bar, but they both have equipment mounting disadvantages. Your bars look much more friendly toward my only complaint.

    (That bike is stylish as hell, and the bars even complement the excess joint appearance)

    Or perhaps I should have said vastly more common than cows since the nearest cows are probably 400 miles away. Certainly they're not as common as cows in Vermont. These guys are wild, but hunting them is restricted around Nome and the population has grown dramatically in the last 10 years. There are three herds within 20 miles of town totaling maybe100-150 animals. A coworker had some in his yard the other day. You're right, they typically circle when threatened, but people with dogs have been getting charged lately for some reason. The local animals usually ignore me on my bike, or trot off 50 yards and stare. No crowds here, man, and no fences for 500 miles. But then there's not much else either. Can make a person feel small and insignificant, which is a good way for humans to feel now and then. Cheers and thanks for taking an interest. vb

    Open space has that effect on me. Above treeline, bald mountains, even just pastures. Can't imagine what it's like with 500+ miles of tundra. I like looking off into the distance, and seeing no sign of humans. I often try to picture a landscape as it would have looked before we screwed it up. Vermont isn't too bad, but there's not many places (besides deep in the woods) where you can't see signs of people. Our biggest mountain (Mt. Mansfield) has a ski resort (Stowe) on it's flank, and an old road almost to the summit. The Long Trail traverses it too, but trails are another matter.
