    Had some fun at Ghettocross cyclocross race in Eau Claire, WI. Jumps, creek crossings, fire, and explosions! I ended up taking first place too.

    Played on some of the SM100 trails in Stokesville, Virginia. Not a great example, but there is lots of rocky steep stuff.

    late to the party since i just stumbled on this thread--two big thumbs up for the stoke, and for big fun on big wheels.

    Shot during the END-TOMBED 12-hr mountain bike race near Grand Forks, ND. ~96 miles in the saddle - put in 9 laps @ 10.7 miles a piece. so sore the next day!

    Corresponding video summarizing a lap:

    The steps in that picture are at ~1:55

    About as much terrain as the trails get in eastern ND

    I got a personal best using my fatbike in a 24hr race I do every year. In the right conditions the advantages outweigh the disadvantages.

    Nice work on the fixie! Did you change your gearing or anything else about your setup with the addition of the fat tires?

    great thread! i'm very impressed by some of what you all ride. I'm a pretty decent tech rider, but won't get near some things on the mukluk that I'd do eyes-closed on my Pivot Firebird. at least until I upgrade the bb5 brakes.
    Cool vid and song choice! What bars are you running and what's the adjuster on the left had side?

    Fat Biking circa 1994
    This is the bike and tires that planted the seed for snow biking in me. I put these huge tires on my Klein and they raised the bb an inch and they were over 30% wider than the tires I had on.
    They were too big for all of my friends bikes except for one.

    Do you still have that old Klein? Adroit or Attitude? The old Kleins, pre-Trek, have some desire amongst collectors.

    Check out JonRock, he repaints old Kleins www.Kleinspainted.com - Kleins painted resprays by jonrock

    I have a '92 Attitude in gator linear fade with matching Rock Shocks. Should have maybe gotten the ridgid fork instead, they are more desired today.

    Nice, I know that area a little. Not far from where my mom lives in New Albany. I'll have to check it out next time I'm out there.

    Speaking of collectors' bikes, I have a 1980 Ritchey Everest, all original components (except grips). I answered a postage-stamp ad in the back of Bicycling magazine from the original "Mountain Bikes" company (Gary Fisher, Tom Ritchey, Charles Kelly) trio and was one of their first customers.

    One owner, never crashed. Original Ritchey Palo Alto decals. Classic Ritchey lugless brazing that looks like it was one piece of metal. Hugh Enochs/Jevelot paint job including custom-painted frame-fit pump. Components adapted from tandems, motorcycles and other sources since there were no mass-produced mountain bike specific gruppos or other parts available anywhere.

    This bike predates the Stumpjumper, the first mass-market mountain bike. Paint is fine, overall condition is good, but it hasn't been ridden in about 15 years.

    Any idea where I might best find a buyer who is interested in a (reasonably straightforward) restoration project of a historically notable bike?
