    fatbike films thread

    how about a thread for fatbike films?
    i know ive posted a few all over the place on different threads and always making wee films but if there all together then if any browsers(endo lurkers?),intrested potential owners or non-believers are looking or wondering what these bikes can do then they dont have to go looking...(the truth is out there(here!)

    lets get the ball rolling 50 mile xc ride on the pug;

    Great Vid CK

    If anyone has any doubts regarding the Pug as an allrounder, then all they need do is watch this !

    Looks like a brilliant ride all round and great sunsets at the end.

    Here is a semi-annoying (too much camera shake) fat bike video with a couple wipeouts recorded from a handlebar perspective...

    thanks for the film baker!!,man looks real dry and hot there not like here in scotland
    and good how you included a couple of tumbles
    im collecting a small amount of my mishaps and will put them together soon
    how did you do the slow-mo riding over the rock?,real cool,i need a camera with time lapse but guess wont get that on a cheap camera and i think its more fun with a cheap camera as you have to be more creative with your filming
    com- on everyone else lets see some movies of you out on your fatbikes

    Oh yeah, this has been a super wet spring/summer for the Front Range of Colorado! Scarily, it is normally brown as toast by this time of the year.

    hi,think its the large size gastank,and the wide front bag,eric said this was the standard set up for pugsleys for loads of room to stash stuff,i use the gas tank to quickly grab my camera for `on the move` film shots , the bag can be opened easily one handed while riding having the two parrarel zips and pull tog, great piece of kit,exellent finish and fit

    Brilliant film about the sunset beach ride, Coastkid

    OT: Am I wrong, or did you use to have H-Bars on your Pug? If so, why the change to risers?

    Hey Orkje.

    Still got the Hbars on my Pug and I doubt I will ever change them, especially with ergon grips

    Hi Dr F, I've got H-bars as well, and coming off risers, I seriously doubt whether I'd ever change again, too. Never say never, though... In terms of grips, I'll stick with Oury, though I understand that H-bars combined with ergons must be incredibly comfy as well.

    a couple of beachride films last weekend while dogsitting,mostly filmed `from the saddle` so mostly scenery and front endo shots!
    that dog can run!! over 40 miles on the beaches over the weekend and dogs dont run in a straight line!

    Awsome videos coastkid! thanks for the inspiration. As I've said in a couple other posts, I've been shooting a ton of raw video mostly with a P.O.V. cam either mounted to my helmet or on a boom off the rack. Way behind on the editing (just learning) so bear with me- Hope to have something finished from the Oregon Dunes real soon. I've been trying to do more "tri-pod sets" lately so I know your having to ride alot of stuff two or even three times to get the shot, re-set the cam the other way (sometimes) and then retreve the cam. It's tough to pull off when your out with some buddies - they get tired of waiting for you. It would be cool to see what could be done with multiple riders all with cam systems and some co-operative editing. Keep up the good work...and thanks!!

    hi ward i just use the basic vista movie maker,i used to use the effects and fade out/in either in black or white but you can fade in sections by dragging over-you will see a blue mixing line appear,once you get the hang of it it isnt to difficult,look forward to seeing your films

    trairide to the beach after the big flood

    weve just had 2 months average rainfall in 2 days here in s.e. scotland!
    its been a bit mad,rivers burst there banks,roads closed etc..,
    Hmmm,sounds like ideal conditions for pugsley
    i actully planned to do a film crossing a river on the pugsley today after a thread was started on here asking if they float,my camera batterys died the other weekend before i went for a paddle on the pug!, so they do float-just need film evidence,but the sky basicly fell on our heads here on thursday so that was that, where i planned to film was -lets say a bit overflowed thursday evening!,heres a film i made http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wm6Ga_Bt9Lw

    so i made this today now the rain has passed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd-kdcjPJVY
    it was good fun

    new tachyon 2010 xc camera tryout

    heres first go on the pugsley using the new tachyon 2010 xc cameras i won,the sandy trails are around gullane beach,near where i grew up,its freaky that 22 years ago aged 16 i was down here on my first MTB, a raliegh maverick,which at the time i thought could go anywhere!,we also rode motorbikes on the dunes and beach (illegally!)
    and i remmember thinking at the time it would be cool having an MTB that could cycle on soft sand-so i could ride the miles of sandy tracks and the dunes legally,after 1000s of pounds of mountainbikes with all the latest suspension etc.. im back down here riding reguarly,who`d have thought it
    pugsley is nearly a year old now and still makes me smile every ride

    Excellent videos. I'd agree with your ideas of scenery and ride-by shots. I have a few ideas:

    When your in frame (shooting up from front fork and ride by) remove the helmet camera. Also I'd also throw in a few behind chainstay mounted shots of you pedaling.

    Love your videos keep them coming.

    fat-bike videos

    Sorry it's taking me so long to get my movies up! The camera I'm currently using to record from my P.O.V. cam is PC oriented and i'm editing on my MAC. I've got the editing thing down ( got the basics anyway) but having some issues converting, transfering, exporting,etc...Got my MAC-head brother and a couple of freinds coachin' me. Should have it all ironed out soon...hope so 'cause im pilein' up the raw video!! Trying to work it out without buying a new PC.... That's bike money!!

    Still having problems. The camera i'm using to record from the P.O.V. records in ASF files. I bought a program (Flipformac) that lets me play the raw video on Quick Time and I can load them on to I movies hd (I believe thats an '06 version) but after editing, a file that started out as 2gb increases to like 18gb. At that point my little MacBook Pro stops dead in it's tracks. Won't let me move the file anywhere - can't even put it back on my external hd. Visiting a friend tonight that has a very powerfull newer PC... We'll see what happens.So it's MAC vs PC! Don't believe the comercials - you can freeze up a MAC! Anyhow, trying to get out of this pickle without spending a bunch of $$. any advice will certainly be appreciated!!

    thanks, if you could get the vision of a human without spending thousands on a camera of television standards that would be great for capturing the atmosphere,even so filming like this was a dream 10 years ago,the song is `sweet tides (feat loulou)` by `thievery corperation` ,
    it is on itunes

    Het Coastkid,
    How do you maintain your bike after all those salt water beach rides?
    I've got miles of beach flats where I live on Cape Cod.
    The Pugs looks intriguing

    Hey CK, just got off the Phone with Tachyon. Those are real cool cams. They're running a special this month...100 bucks (USD) for the "mini"...might have to dip in to the bike fund for that. I'm currently using the "Sportzshot" 580 system.Have 3 different lenses for it but they're a hassle to change! need another cam(s) to simplify things.Your movies are really evolving.Keep up the good work! Finally having some luck with a friends PC - very "up-to-date" and very powerful. I get to use it two nights a week so hopefully I'll have some footage to share soon. Seriously thinking of moving? You (and your bike & cams) are certainly welcome here in the pacific north west.Lots of mountains,beaches,desserts... Plenty of snow in the winter; lots of golf courses too!

    -take care, Ward

    thanks ward,living in scotland is great what with all the history scenery and small distances to travel (here in the south east to the nw coast 5 hours drive) but not much money in alot of professions im afraid including greenkeeping and cost of living here near edinburgh the highest which is not much good when you want to buy and build most of surlys frame options so im keepimg all options open ,
    yeah the tachyon cameras are good and the guys are real helpfull with backup etc...,they seem prettty tough too and with the capability of 32g card capacity will film for 8 hours, thats alot of editing! lol

    New question here.

    Hey C.
    Have shot all your vids with such a tiny Tachyon XC Micro cam?

    hi velopax,yes the latest films are ive made on the cycling are all done with the tachyon 2010xc camera, you can tell by the `halo` type effect when pointed at the sun which i couldnt really do with there old camera with the narrower 50 degree lense as it went a white out,the new cameras 90 degree lense films into the sun and is better under trees and low light,it will film under bright street lights but unfortuantly not in pitch dark behind an H.I.D light ,its only draw back,i imagine it would film at night in snow under a moon, you can also take stills and again you get the halo effect into the sun, like this...


    heres another beachride film for all you beach bums

    Nice video. You found alot of junk in the sand on that ride. Great change from the "my aluminum bike is better than yours" threads as of late.
