    Wow. So much to like about this. The trails are awesome! Were are they? The riding is great, nice looking bike also, couldn't tell what it was though, I imagine you have a 650b rear wheel based on the cross post reference. The filming is really good also, did you film it yourself or did you have a cameraman?

    Great video, thanks for sharing.

    front is at 12psi...might reduce to 11 or so...sidewalls/casing seem a little more supportive than the end i had on there....rear (quasi moto to P35) is at 23psi with a heavy ish tube....fixed/fatfront has a way of getting the rear wheel in over its head!...

    and yep, filmed myself on a canon s95...amazing wee camera!....

    What gear? I'm running my KM 61" fixed and have just got my hands on a Pugsley fork, have a Endo tyre and if I can get my hands on some Marge Lites, that'll free up the Marge for KM duty....

    Without doubt, one of the best and most inspiring videos I've seen in quite a while. I really want to ride those trails. On that bike.

    The trails and the music are awesome and make this a great video. Thanks for sharing.

    I would love to come over and ride when I get my fatbike built. (Hopefully will start the build in a couple months.)
