    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.

    comfort on my H-Bar

    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.

    fat-biking at the Oregon Dunes

    Finally got my editing,exporting,etc. issues worked out so heres my first attempt at puttin' a movie up. Hope everything works. This was my 3rd & last day at the dunes last summer. I'm putting it up first because theres some great late afternoon light. In the open dunes I'm running just under 4psi Ft. and just under 5psi Rr. ( little more out on the beach) I'll put more up as I get them edited. Cheers!

    i'm pretty amazed by how well the endos float on the sand in the dunes and how little sideways washing out you get in turns. Very cool!

    Thanks CK. As you guys that ride sand & snow could guess, I spent plenty of time pushin' the bike too! The surface conditions really vary in big sand like that - from hard as pavement to deep powder. you really have to learn to read the stuff... and try to link the ridable "swaths" together. Actually, on the windward side of the higher ridgelines is where I found some of the best sand.So to get from point A to point B you end up zig-zaging all over the place to avoid the freshly blown in soft sand...kind of like a sail boat tacking against the wind. I've got hours (three days worth) of raw video two edit from on that trip, lots of stuff "commuting" to the dunes on the beach too. More to come!! By the way CK, there's a very "high end" golf resort just a few miles south of where I was riding in Bandon (Oregon). They bill thereselfs as the west coast equivilant to the "Ancient links of Scottland". I'll try to rustle you up a link.

    take care,
    -Ward

    P.S. here you go CK-

    thanks for the link ward,that place looks outstanding...,where i stay is a few miles from where golf all started on the east side of edinburgh at lieth links..,saint andrews on the north side of the forth estuary takes the name as the home of golf because of the rules being drawen up there and the rest as they say is history..i was time served at http://www.gullanegolfclub.com/ where nearby is my favourite beaches and dunes to ride...i dont play golf now but love greenkeeping still,next to running a guided beachriding tour company( a 1st) or a countryside ranger as my dad was it is the next best thing to being on the coast every day

    Beach riding tour service... sounds interesting. I wonder if the forest service would permit me for that at the oregon dunes? I'm afraid to ask, the way our forest service operates - they might panic and close the dunes to biking! I did ask them if it was legal to ride out there and nobody could tell me. I was the first they'd heard of doing such a thing.

    an idea i thought about after about a week of owning the pug ward..,but the state of everything this now with the recession (and my bank balance!) means maybe its not the right time...have left it on the back burner for now...dont think fatbikes are gonna catch on here much in the UK..,people in general here are a bit reluctant to anything new or diffrent...glad i saw the light...
    but hey i dont mind,i have my own deserted coastline to go ride........unless i head southwest and bump into the doc...

    It's just a little Canon SD1000 point and shoot. It has pretty limited video capabilities. I would not buy one for that purpose.

    This is my 1st ride on my dune trip last summer. Woke up to a "blue-bird" day that the weatherman didn't predict so I took advantage of it. I wanted to record the ride, the route & the scenery but I didn't want to mess with the camera gear all the time so I mounted it on the boom, kept fresh batterys & cards in and let it run. Might get redundant for some...lots & lots of sand, but for those that our interested in the route & the terrain, I finished out the loop. I'm working on ride # 2 ( #3 highlights are posted above) which was a rainy day until late afternoon when the clouds peeled back. it's a shorter ride but with real cool late afternoon light!! Trying to get some partners together for next summer - love to have some other riders to film! Could put a cam on someone in the front pointing backwards too.

    sand for snow...

    yep even i got snow on our local hills in east lothian...s.e. scotland..




    i had 2 days last febuary but although deep it was wet and thawed quick..
    this stuff is dry on top of frozen ground and a bit diffrent to ride than sand!
    first off... now i know why you guys all go on about the new larry tyre now..i had a few moments as the front stepped out a few times on fast down hills while crossing 4x4 tracks..
    snow is a lot harder to read than sand for sure,though ive proberly got my local beaches sussed out now and know what to look for in traction in colour,texture,and looking ahead at any footprints...
    anyway full write up on blog...
    heres links to satuardays 40 mile ride;my attempt at snowbiking....

    Very nice! Love the flask - gotta' get one of those. My Tachyon should be here in a couple days. They e-mailed me the tracking number today. Can't wait! Spending New years + a couple of days up skiing with my family. Taking the bike for sure - if the skiing's good I'll do alot of skiing and a little biking and vise - versa if the skiing is bad.

    Happy holidays

    my first vid. very basic. i was using a hand held 7yr old sony. i cant wait to get a cycling specific one.
    trail conditions were 6-8" of snow. i was the first person to ride the trails. there were some hiker tracks and some xc ski tracks other than that just deer prints.

    Get 'er Dune!

    This is the last of my dune vids ( until next year anyway ). This is the second days ride. A rainy day to start with, got a late start but found some great light for filming. Gonna try to spend a week straight there this Summer - endless areas, nooks & crantys to explore! Apperantly several lakes along the forest edge that I never got around to either.
    Enjoy! And Happy New Year Everyone!

    snowbiking,local woods...

    a quick film i made today out riding the local woods..as you may know the UK is in the grip of its coldest winter for 4 weeks now in 30-40 years...of course having the pugsley im loving it snow depth here is a perfect 4-6" near the coast but over 2 ft inland on the local hills..

    Nice vid, coastkid. We Belgians are also experiencing some real winter, after year upon year of drab, rainy mediocrity. Snow biking is such a rush, and I don't even ride a fatbike yet!

    Washington coast riding

    Here's some vids' from early last spring on the Washington (state) coast. This was my first test of the Sportzshot cam system and also my first attempt at filming with a boom. Also a little wider angle lens than the Oregon Dunes films - "flattens" out the terrain a little - shows more of the bike though. Not much variety of scenery here so might get redundant for some, but for those who are interested, they do show the Endo/ Lg. Marge combo doin' they're job. I'm running probably a little too low of pressure here and they're still rollin' right along! Having some cable and card issues with my cam systems so I haven't got any worthy snow & ice footage yet but replacements are on the way so hopefully soon!

    take care everyone, Ward

    The first snowless fatbike video of the year. Thanks, coastkid.
    What are the concrete boxes standing in a row in that wood? Not anti-tank obstacles, I gather?

    hi orkje, the concrete cubes are indeed WW2 coastal defence blocks built incase there had been an invasion by `ze germans`, there were posts out on flat sand beaches to prevent gliders landing too,many stumps are still there,there are hundreds of these blocks often in rows of three...alot were made from POWs captured in 1939-40,they sometimes wrote on the tops of them before they set...
    click on my blog and search the labels to see more pics of them...

    Great, coastkid. Another video to make the waiting for my fatbike even more unbearable.

    Pugs On Patrol...

    heres a film from the weekend when i took tommy(bike patrol) and his work colleague hanneke who are both police bikepatrol officers in the netherlands along my local coastline when theve been over for a work meeting at edinburgh...
    weather was pretty awful with drizzle and `scotch mist` and got quite cold...
    i put this film together for them as well as a full hours worth of edited stuff thats in the post...despite the weather we had fun
    music is some traditional scottish with a bit of modern beat to it by one of the best live bands ive seen..the peatbog faeries...great band to see live after a few beers..

    I have to say your local coastline, with its ruined landing craft and other war memorabilia, begins to feel like home to me

    NIce video and editing. I need to learn how to edit my stuff and piece together more of a story... Also, interesting music

    I like the variety of camera angles, the fact that you have other riders in the video, the mix with still shots, etc. I need to learn how to make vids that are more interesting, rather than just raw footage like this from yesterday:

    Inspirational, as usual! Looking for an HD camera, bike-mountable, of course. What would you recommend?

    great film CK

    Looks like a good time was had by all.

    Felt a little sorry for the Lady on `skinney tyres` but she seemed to do ok

    hanneke did real well riding her regular mtb on the sand..tommy had the big pug grin
    mangoman if your looking at an HD camera then maybe the go pro hero?,lots of info on them over on the films thread and videos to look at ,the tachyon i use isnt HD,but will take up to a 32G card(8 hours filming).4G on the go pro (2 hours filming ) unfortuantly either dont film at night well even behing HID lights,ok under city streetlights,
    i think it would be more benefical to find and up load image stabliser software like what comes standard with mac imovies, i believe it is available for windows vista...

    The thing that's bugging me bout the HD GoPro is their choice of lens, specifically the fish-eye effect. It's too much, IMO.

    Would love to find a 1028 HD waterproof camera without that effect.

    GoPro

    I shot that in the standard 4:3 frame, it does switch down to a 127 degree higher HD resolution. I'll try that out this weekend. Sometimes the "fisheye" is cool, other times it warps things a bit too much.
