    Good job! Fat Bike Air and Action Shots on Tech Terrain

    EDIT: I figured this thread could have action shots on tech terrain (or features) piggyback on top.

    Show everyone that these wide-tired behemoths can actually separate from the ground and can take on tech terrain and features

    Post up shots of you and your buds catching air on a fatty or taking on rocks, obstacles, and tech terrain. Let us know where yer at.

    Sorry sir, you are in the minority. Most of these folk would rather bolt a bunch of crap to therir bikes than catch air!

    ...
    When you find a way to get air on this sort of surface, do let us know...



    Meanwhile I will restrict my airtime to a pogo-stick.

    Tweaked the title to include "Action Shots on Tech Terrain and Features" so we can show that even though they're the best choice for snow and sand, that they can take on other conditions just as well.

    Not a pic and I've posted it before, but I think it qualifies.

    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    That fork looks like a Foes DH fork, it's what the Dorado was built after. If it is that must be a nice ride with a Nate up front!!

    Closest thing I have to an action shot right now, here is one of the mud holes in Patapsco State Park, Maryland.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/droit/7189711201/" title="DSCN2979 by bdroit, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7233/7189711201_c3b365fdef_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="DSCN2979"></a>
    Went out for a ride this morning, jumped a few of the mud holes, later in the day took the dog for a walk and one of my landing spots had stuck.
    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/droit/7189711259/" title="DSCN2975 by bdroit, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7238/7189711259_8d650e6a84_z.jpg" width="480" height="640" alt="DSCN2975"></a>

    First picture in the direction of travel, second pictures is looking back at the hole showing my landing spot. The pictures don't show it well, its about a six foot hole.

    I just gotta say that I demo-ed a Carver Ti Fat Bike with a carbon fork at NEMBAFEST yesterday and it was just about the funnest bike I've ever ridden. I took it down a DH course called Jester 3 times and it was such a blast to hit tabletops and ride berms with. I was really amazed at it's capabilities as were the surprised riders whom I would catch and pass. Couldn't seem to get it more than 2 feet off the ground though!

    I usually ride alone or with the dog but these were taken when I went to NH and 2 out of 3 pics were the first time I went off em. The FatBox is still the most fun bike I've ever ridden and by far the most plush Almost 1500mi of me beating on her and still holding up well!

    Self portrait from a little while ago. Good thread to put it in so figured I'd add.

    Idk if you remember me, but I was the guy riding DH rig with the green full face helmet, was wondering if there were possibly any pics taken of me hitting that table top/ hip-step up right before the bridge... if you could please let me know it would be most appreciated, want to show my coworkers.. Thanks
    Ha! Kinda surprised you found me on here. Yup, I got one my buddy forwarded me from his P&S camera. I wonder how the pics from the guy with the fancy pants camera turned out. Do you know who he was? Oh yeah, what's a hip-step up? Cheers,

    its like the feature that I kept hitting but a hip is pretty much a diagonal transition aka the backside isn't totally linear with the take off theres some lateral travel and a step up is where the take off is lower than the backside of the jump... If you look next time your out there or at the pics you'll notice that the backside is higher and at a slight angle hence the hip/stepup/tabletop lol

    Ha! I wish. Although I don't have the money for two complete fat bikes, I do have the extra parts and time to swap the bike over from singlespeed to geared or rigid to squishy.

    I've been having health issues the past couple of weeks, and I need to run gears (doctor's orders to slow it waaaay down). I threw on the Lefty for shiggles. On Wednesday I have a singlespeed race, so the gears have to come off tonight. Undecided whether to run the Lefty since it's pretty smooth out there (Wakefield, in Northern Va). Planning to come in last so as not to stress my heart out too much.

    Extra cables and chain are all cut to the right length, I have two wheelsets, and two forks, so it doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes to go from one mode to another.

    Quick question for you all. What rims do you run for summer trail and single track riding? I'm looking into getting a 9:zero:7 and running rolling Darryl's originally I had thought about getting the ones with holes drilled, but does that cause them to lose structural integrity? I'm a smaller guy, so probably going to run Husker Du's year round. I'll have to sell my regular mountain bike to get the wife's approval on the purchase, but going fat year round looks like a lot of fun.

    If singlespeed and rigid, I am using a wheelset built with Speedway Uma 50mm rims. However, I'm not sure if they are still available.

    If geared and Lefty'd, I have a wheelset built with Surly Marge Lite (65mm) rims. They work well too.

    Tire-wise, HuDus have been my go-to tire, but I also like the Nate very much. When I started fat tires 4 years ago, it was the Endo, then I switched to the Larry when they became available. After getting the Nate and Hudus, the Larrys and Endos are gathering dust.

    Being local I can swing by Speedway and ask them in person. I'm still in the planning stage, test rode a speedway Fatback last week and the prototype 9:zero:7, but i noticed this week that the Fatback frame went up in price. I only remember seeing 70mm and 90mm rims on their site.

    Yeah, when I got my second silver Uma 50mm (about a year ago), it was the last one they had. Not sure if they've had any more made after that.

    I see that Jones has a black one, which looks exactly like my Speedway, except for the color: http://www.jonesbikes.com/Wheels/Rim...funky.tpl.html

    Thanks for the fresh material fellas!

    Wife, her friend and I rode Frederick Watershed and Gambrill today. We tried to get a clear shot with our latest camera (Nikon AW100). Didn't work so awesome in today's light conditions at that particular spot. Hop 1, Hop 2, Hop 3 below:



    I'm on the lookout for a new camera because a lot of my pics are starting to look like this. Never had a SLR/DSLR (or even a camera where the lens was interchangeable), and am seriously considering one, but not sure I'd ever take it on rides because they're too honking big...and fragile. Just discovered the Micro Four Thirds system, and very interested, but have to do more research. Final option is to pick up a new Canon S100. I had a S90 that took better shots in the woods, but it stopped working properly after filling with crud & mud (thus why I have a Nikon AW-100 now).

    If anyone has any insight on a pocketable (or nearly so) camera that can take sweet action shots in the woods, please share. I want to ride and take consistently good action shots, not do "photoshoot" rides . Thanks!

    Last weekend at Gambrill was so fun, I went back again today. Even wore the same jersey and shorts to make sure the experience was just as good

    Do I go left to right...?


    ...or right to left?


    Eh, Option 1 it is. Let's leave a buzzsaw mark while we're at it

    Loving the pics Drevil.

    I have a Ti frame about to be built, and a lefty about to be delivered. I hope very much that it will turn into a bike as nice as yours (will look similar, I think we're the same height). Either way your action shots are adding to my excitment.

    It's a stupid bike... yet I can't seem to wipe the smile off my face. I think a new rear tire is in order as the Nate seems a little much for my current needs. Might get an 80's punk band tire. I'll get some pics soon

    Thanks Steve. I ended up with a Sony NEX 5N, and plan to buy a 16mm pancake lens ASAP. Those last three pix are with the new camera, but I really have to figure out how to use it properly.

    The first two jumpy ones were taken at dusk with no flash, and I had to tweak them in Photoshop. Here's one we took with the flash.
