    Wow, dunno what is up. Vimeo stuff takes 4x longer to play (than clip length) than Youtube videos (which seem to play seamlessly all the way through). Anyone know of any internet settings I need? I have a seemingly reasonable American 700kbps connection to teh intarwebs. I would very much like to see Coastkid71’s Vimeage without having to plan my day around it.

    My first Fat bike turned up yestarday and today was my first beach ride.

    Here's the video, I had to take off the sound as the wind was so strong it was too noisy to listen to all the way through.

    What do you think of my effort?

    I don't know about a great feeling on the day I made it as the wind was so strong and the video didn't pick up the driving snow.
    It's nice to have all that space and only see 2 people out with their dogs.

    CK your vids are giving me the itch to get to Scotland. Beautiful! By what band is the soundtrack you used on the third clip of your most recent post? I'd like to listen to more.

    Setting up a zipline on the beach would be nearly impossible. Not totally impossible, just really difficult.

    Here's my version of tscheezy in action

    And Mangoman, there's a couple of shots that illustrate your curiosity.

    So after my video, everyone thought I was a total punk rocker.

    But after your vid, Rando, I'm unmasked as a total geek.

    Doh!

    Great video, Coastkid! That sandy singletrack looks delicious.

    Tscheezy/EndoRando: amazing scenery and wonderful editing. Thanks a lot! The spinning headcam may be geeky, but the effect is unique indeed.

    I can finally contribute to these great video's on here.
    Second ride on the Pugsley and I love the bike!

    For the video I had my GoPro with a chesty mount running at the same time as a camera with a tripod, so it gives two different perspectives of going over the object at the same time.
    Glad I was by myself, it was time consuming, but fun!

    Thanks, I'm having so much fun adapting to this bike!

    All footage was done in one ride at Moon Lake Park, around 30 miles of fun flowy, technical trail for your riding pleasure.

    Lucky Dawg!

    A little late posting this, snow has already covered my state. This is a vid from a continually evoving trail system just a few miles from my home. The section's called "Lucky Dawg":

    Been busy so haven't been on the web for a few days... and some dang nice films popped up! nice to catch up on everybodys winter riding. Tscheesy & Endorando - Love the zip-lines & spinning boom... and thanks for sharing the tech. Going skiing next week for a few days... taking the bikes too! Spinning head mount boom looks like it might adapt to skiing - hope you don't mind if I copy. Don't know about the zip-line though, might take someone out. Would have to hang it high for sure. A little tree climbing may be in order. Great Stuff!

    Damn you and your intarnets!!! That tune grew on me in such a short amount of time, that I bought the album!!! Of course, that tune is the best track on the entire album. Sorta ambient UK-synthy stuff grows on me. Only took one tune from Fila Brazillia (Bumblehaun from the album Jump Leads) back in 2002 for me to buy six of their albums. Of course, being a synthhead (see this picture and of course this picture) I am a sucker for good synthy stuff.

    [QUOTE=tscheezy]Setting up a zipline on the beach would be nearly impossible. Not totally impossible, just really difficult.

    I could see it happening w/ the right piece's of driftwood handy...

    What are you using for a pulley on your zip-line?

    Wonder how much vibration a remote controlled helicopter would generate; how much weight one could carry? They make some cheap, simple,lightweight ones now that possibly could be carry'd in a pack...

    Like these perhaps... http://www.xheli.com/
    Check out the "Chinook"... gonna have to check into these...

    Loves me some Fila Brazilia. Like you, one song turned into buying the whole catalog.

    love the heli idea ward!
    you would need a pilot for it while riding but it'll give some nice shots!

    in the same page...http://www.xheli.com/86p-948h-hd-minicam.html
    720p x 30 fps for less than 60$ sounds good

    Cool! So obviously it's being done. Might be cumbersome on a long trip but for a shorter scenic ride, specially at the beach (here's your beach zip-line) might be just the thing. Trouble with this kind of stuff is you pretty much gotta buy the stuff and T&E the method yourself... can be a gamble. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained...

    Those pictures are from the setup I had back in 2002. My current setup is really small (one Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 ). But yes, the Novation Supernova was an amazing synth module. Getting married, buying a house, and then of course having kids pretty much changes things.

    What clued me was the reference to military and border patrol. I'm thinking of getting one of those cheapies, I do photograph a lot of bike races, an aerial shot would be fantastic.
    I did a cross race this year and someone used a zip line. I didn't even notice the thing. Really does add value to a film.

    For sure Steve. Stayed up late last night studying up on RC Heli's... there's way more to choose from than I thought there would be. This is the first time I've actually thought about spending money on RC stuff... good timing too 'cause there appears to be some pretty affordable options now. Looks like fun too all by itself. I think I could have allot of fun w/ these things aside from cycling. Martinsillio sent me this link:

    Deffinatly giving me ideas. I've got some old Petzl climber's haul pulleys not gettin' any use these days... working on my zip-line today! Thanks TSC & ER for the inspiration! can't wait to go out & play.

    Her's another high dollar unit. Really cool though... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OcnTa...eature=related

    Here we go - programable GPS; object avoidance; GPS hold; wind resistant and maybe easyer to transport and deploy than traditional heli's. Looks like this thing is just now coming on the market and will be approx. $ 600.00 from what I've been able to find out so far. Pretty cool... you could program a "route" w/ the cam on, set the transmitter down and ride the FB (or whatever your ridin') through the "scene". Within the range of the transmitter, you could even have it follow you. Developement is just coming together on this so it's bound to get better.

    This is the only place I've found that lists a price... and it say's "currently unavailable". Got a feeling these will be popular. May have to wait a little while for them to get it all dialed in (and for them to become available).

    First ride of the new year.
    Not my usual video, but then again it wasn't my usual ride, I only rode here once before last year and the creek was dry, well I guess from the warm weather it wasn't dry anymore!
    sections of the trail were flooded, and I cant remember all the times I crossed water on different parts of the trail, man I'm glad it was warm.

    No music on this one... yet anyway. Just a quick late afternoon spin on the edge of town. Runnin' my tires a little low, had 'em adjusted for crusty snow... didn't expect so much rock hard ice. Would have been "setting" the studs better w/ a little more pressure. Speaking of stud's, wouldn't have been able to ride some of these sections w/o them, or at least would have had to skirt around the ice. These are the conditions where studs make the difference... You can hear the studs "clickin" on some of the clips...

    Went to a local Hobbyshop a couple days ago and asked about electric heli's. Ones with two sets of props on the same axis are the easiest to learn and fly - but they burn batteries. With most of them you get barely 10 minutes of flight time. If you buy a normal one - get lessons, just about everyone crashes their first flight. Seen several that looked like a Go-Pro could fit in them. I'm thinking even a remote controlled off-road car/truck could make some neat vids too.

    Awesome! Great comparison by the way. I'm hoping one of my buddies will invest in one after watching it.

    The comparison pretty much happened by accident. I was able to move so much faster on the snowmobile track that I had time to rig the camera and tripod, and the rest just happened. One piece of information for comparison purposes is also that I weigh almost 60 lbs more then my buddy, meaning the fat bike advantage is even bigger than is immediately obvious.

    We finally got some snow to ride the Pugsley in.
    I was trying many different angles on the camera mount, some trned out better than others, I ran out of card on the way down screamer.
    If you make it to the end, I put in a good blooper crash cought from 2 perspectives

    Actually you are very good example how well fatbike works even for big guy.

    More Cowiche Conservancy

    Same area, different day. Couple inches of fresh snow covering all that ice. Took a longer loop this time too instead of out & back... down into the Cowiche Canyon on "#3" and back out on "#1". Studs came in handy, specially climbing out on the icy, north facing slope. Happy Trails!

    Snow ride from last weekend

    Shot a lot of video last weekend, fresh snow on a sunny day. This one clip I thought was nice enough to just post without editing or music. Didn't hit the brakes too much, and it was my first ride ever using dual Larry's:

    Nice trail, how high was that bridge crossing? It looked high!

    How did you like the dual Larry setup?
    I just ordered another Larry, only took a few rides for me to learn I really don't care for the endo.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm a new Fat Bike rider. Built up a Pugsley in October of 2010 and loving it. Below are two videos. The quality is poor but not bad for a home-brew camera/video camera mount rig job.

    Have a good riding season....
    Steve

    The bridges are a few feet off the water - those were the tame ones. Not shown is the first bridge which is a bit creaky and has a couple of bumps in it. None of them are anything I would want to slip off of.

    So far I'm liking the dual Larry setup. Hopefully Wisconsin's getting the dumping of snow we're getting here. I may get out tonight or tomorrow beforehand to see how they go in deeper snow. I did not notice any increased rolling resistance so far. Funny thing is when you go across concrete they sound like engines off a WWII fighter plane.

    It's hard to tell from the video, it looks like your going over a crevace.
    Do you have the rear mounted in reverse?

    The water is always still and dark, on film it can look wayyy deeper.

    I considered doing reverse, but figured it would be fine in the normal direction. I did not have any spinouts. On most of the trails I do I can can usually get enough momentum so more speed is what I usually want. If anything, having more traction going down a few twisty downhills actually helps me more. That hill at the start of the video has put me on my rear a few times in the past when it gets icy. Unfortunately one trail that I could make use of a reverse-Larry is not open for winter riding.

    Just a matter of where you are riding.

    Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions, I'm new to the fatbike world, but whatever I ride if I don't like something, I make changes, and it's nice to have your insight.
    I ride mainly tight twisty but flowy singletrack, with plenty of hills thrown in to test your lungs, and downhills to test your nerves!

    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 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.

    You're welcome! The dual Larry's worked well for me and the team mate that used my bike at the Wisconsin Fatbike race last Saturday. However, back home today me and Utabintarbo from this board rode that trail today. We have a bit more snow now, and I was having issues on flat ground with footprints and powder snow. Hard to keep the bike in line. Following Bob through a few of those sections he was going pretty good with a Larry upfront and an Endo for the rear, he rode stable, held a good line. I let out some air, was at 8 lbs originally. That helped a little. Other sections with less snow I was doing OK.

    I walked the bridges today that you saw in my vid, didn't want to risk getting wet.

    Afterwards, I went to another trail near my house, and reversed the rear Larry. Gave me a little extra traction, and the ride was a lot more stable, in conditions that were far worse. Seriously, I'm thinking the hikers near my house weigh as much as a bull Moose as it was a seriously bone jarring ride going over all those footprints. So with deeper snow and bad trail conditions, I find the reversed Larry to work better. I didn't notice any spectacular improvement in climbs, but it does give more power to maintain a good line in bad conditions.

    I'm thinking if we get even more snow, the Endomorph will have to go back on the rear. I once did a comparison of the Endo to Nokian 3.0 Gazzas. The massive Gazza's had a lot of bite, but made pedaling way harder with the weight and rolling resistance. I could do almost three laps on a short local trail with the Endo in the same time it would take me to do only one lap with the Gazza. One the flipside the Gazza worked great in coarse sand during the summer. The Endo is still a great tire for rear use in deep conditions. You just have to experiment where you ride to understand what works when.

    Now I'm GAS'n for some wider rims.

    I just got my Larry in the mail yesterday, based on your very valuable feedback I think I'll hold off on changing out the Endo, we have around 4-5 inches in the woods, and we just got some light snow and ice last night and today, and probably more snow Friday.
    How hard are these tires to change compaed to normal tires.

    By all means I encourage you to experiment. I found if you use gloves, changing these tires on Large Marge rims is incredibly easy. I swapped that Larry around outside in the cold. The first time I ever swapped out tires I had a hard time as I didn't quite get all the air out, plus the Endos back then were a little different than the new improved versions. Waiting for all that air to release is the hardest part. Sometimes I get lucky and don't need levers. However, getting Nokian Freddie Revenz off a LM rim is a different story. Keep in mind our snow was still a bit powdery last weekend. Not sure yet how Larry handles a good deep packing snow. I may get that chance this weekend with the rain we are having, and a little more snow in the forecast. The main thing I learned this past weekend is reversing the Larry does not make a huge difference in hill climbing. I've heard the same from a few other Pugs owners who've tried it too. You get a little extra grip, but nothing spectacular for climbing the big hills. But riding "Moosetrack-like" footprints, the reversed Larry with low pressure around 7 psi was a huge improvement to me. The bike was way more stable.

    4 and a half fay bikes

    We had 4 and a half fat bikes out for a 18 mile ride up in Forest City, well packed snowmobile trails, with plenty of grueling hills, and some scary steep downhills, man what a great ride!

    Snow bikin' (and skiing) got soggy for a spell here in the PNW so off to the beach for a little winter cruise. My first time to film this stretch of beach, first time to ride it in winter too. Lots of rainwater & snowmelt draining into the ocean... don't think my tires touched dry sand all day.

    Yessir. Have seen Metheny many times. I think he peaked a long time ago, but I still dig the old catalog of work.

    Sheesh...still shaking my head about Klemmer. Haven't heard that in a long while. Brings back memories and I'm glad you rattled my brain this morning...

    My pleasure Bro! And agreed, PM's first 5 or 6 album's are all I pull out to listen too. How about that early David Grisman stuff? and those few "jazzy" Tony Rice album's... "Acoustics" and "Mar West"... (Mar West is now out of print... just digitized it onto my iTunes)...

    Ward, your videos are definitely showing a progression in the quality of editing and content. So when do you debut the helicopter?

    Do you use iMovie? You should try playing with the Ken Burns effect for our static shots (when the camera is sitting still and you ride by). It gives the effect of the camera being on a dolly.

    Liking it Ward!,
    you seem to always be able to capture the relaxed vibe of fat biking...just bopping along soaking up the views and terrain and being relaxed and chilled...
    well done...

    Thanks TSC! Did you notice I was saltwater testing your frame bag? No helicopter yet, bit of a career reconfiguration going on the next couple months. I think the little "quad copters" look like the way to go. You can break them down to carry them and they're allot easier to set up quick out in the feild. I'm using iMovies '08, haven't messed much w/ the effects it has yet, I know it doesn't have the "stablizer" feature though. Waiting to upgrade 'till I purchase a new computer too. Thinking about a cable actuated "turntable" cam mount for the rear rack... put an old friction lever to good use...

    iMovie '11 is like a $15 download from Apple. It does a lot more than iMovie '08, which was generally considered to be a turd of an app, unfortunately. If you decide to upgrade, to take full advantage of what the program can do I would highly recommend David Pogue's (technology writer for the NYT) excellent Missing Manual series that is a very readable and comprehensive guide to iMovie and iDVD.

    Thanks for the info, didn't realize I could upgrade for $15... Painless! Definatly needing the missing manual too. My computer skills came largely from my daughters (and trial & error)... wouldn't hurt me to take a class or two at our local Mac shop either.

    Wow, I was thinking something from Windham Hill and/or Chuck Greenberg. What’s your favourite Metheny album? I have two: New Chautauqua and the album titled Jim Hall and Pat Metheny. Too bad his newer stuff just has that “let’s try everything that is new an mix it all together” sound, although As Falls Wichita, So Falls Wichita Falls has one or two nice tracks on it.

    Yes, they pulled the music. You might be able to sync it with the same vid from my blog - while viewing the higher quality YouTube version.

    I can always hear ...Chautauqua. And ...Wichita. And I agree, for the most part, that he's just rehashing. But there have been some powerful moments, even in the later stuff. Surrounded by rehashed stuff.

    Tough to pick a fave LP LP, They have such different mood's. I heard "San Lorenzo" when it first came out (I was a junior in high school) on a "Jazz Hour" on a local FM station - the only jazz available on the radio here at that time. Went out and bought it the next day! Steered me away from mainstream music for good... though I do/did listen to "good" pop like Eric Burdon and WAR, Robin Trower (In City Dreams in perticular), Maria Muldaur, Joni Mitchell, Pheobe Snow,etc... I purchased every thing up through "Offramp" and "Rejoicing"w/ Charlie Haden & Billy Higgins... Started gettin' hooked on other sounds after that, especially "Bossa Nova" and Brazillian pop stuff... always cool stuff comin' out of Brazil...

    Yet another ride in the snow alone.
    Started out at White Haven where they got a fresh 4-5 inches of snow the night before, making the trail very soft, my goal was Rockport 8.7 Miles away, even seen sled Dogs on the way, very cool.

    Soggy Cascades

    Ton's of rain a few weeks back made for super slushy conditions, ski area's lost some snow, and skiers. Took a quick spin up to the "Yurt" (they serve ale there) and back just to get out...swimmin' around on this one...
