    I was debating on the pedals that I wanted to put on my Muk2. Finally decided to try the Wellgo WPD-996 pedals. Clipless on one side, platform on the other. The color even matches. Haven't used them much, so the jury is still out on how they will perform. Only cost me $50.00 too.

    I got these for my new fat front Mariachi to match it. I'm going with an all green, black, orange with it.

    I don't really see myself using any other clip ins that aren't crank brothers

    Shimano Alfine 8

    I just got my Pugs last week I made a lot of modifications, but the best was the Shimano Alfine SG-S501 8-Speed Internal Hub. A complete list of the modifications can be seen at:

    I built this up for my kid for Christmas. He got it early because he won't be home from Norway for long. I tried to chase him around the snowy flowy singletrack yesterday. That was very fun even though I couldn't keep up!
    As it sits the bike is right at 30#. It will gain a bit when I get the 80 mm wheels built up.
    He didn't seem to be at a disadvantage riding on hard pack with the 44mm rims versus my 80's. It is a more stable ride than my old FatBack. I'm looking forward to doing some real comparison rides.

    Here are my Latest Purchases

    1. OMM Cold Springs Racks F&R.
    Worked with John at OMM getting the mounting down for Pugs' non-canti boss fork.
    I had to do some noodling for the mounting, but made no modifications to the rack itself i.e. cutting (yikes).
    They look great, and the integrity speaks volumes.
    Now, just need some Arkel panniers for the rear. . .

    2. Paul Thumbies with D/A 9 speed levers.
    Got these for simplicity, elegance and most importantly RELIABILITY.
    Love the friction backup just in case.

    Sweet, I love my Paul Thumbies. I would recommend taking the barrel adjusters out. Those things have a tendency to loosen up and they aren't necessary with the set up.

    Toni Lund, what kinda studs are those? I managed to get 1,000 Tikka studs for $114 (plus an extra $50 international transfer charge from my bank).

    ^^Spovegas, if you have not tried out that Smartgauge yet, do so soon. Mine arrived before the fatbike and I found out too late that it was a dud (powered up but wouldn't read pressures). Topeak is warrantying it, but it's backordered until end of January.

    I've used mine numerous times and it seems to be working fine. Bummer that yours is a lemon. Hope they get it replaced for you soon.

    I have 2 of the same guage. I have not tried to use them on my fat bike with the low pressure, but know they work with my other 2 bikes.

    You're right these are sweet.

    Needed (wanted) the in-line barrel adjuster for the right lever since the newer XT rear derailleurs have no barrel adjusters on them.
    Honestly, I don't know why Shimano eliminated it.

    Probably don't need it for the front as they have a tendency to be less problematic, but I'll keep it just for symmetry.

    I considered mounting my old bulletproof Suntour XC Pro thumbies circa 1990, with my old XTR 950 RD and XTR 8sp cassette, and I still may.

    We'll see how it goes.


    Peace

    Barrel adjusters on the rear derailluer are unnecessary and fragile. If you have a barrel adjuster on the shifter, that will be more than enough to adjust out any cable stretch that occurs between adjustments.

    Imagine my excitement this morning


    Imagine my disapointment


    I think a small frame bag might have been packed as a medium, but an emails been sent and I'm sure it will all work out for the best.
    Now just the faffing of waiting for the correct one to come and sending the small one back over the pond.

    The drill bits are 2.5mm. I will write to my blog when the project continues. Should be fairly easy work, but surely somewhat time consuming.

    I got those studs from Outsider (yetirides.blogspot.com), not sure how many, closer to 300, should be enough.

    plastic bags

    I found this plastic Istad bags in the IKEA store.
    Four different sizes and very VERY cheap.

    Great to keep the stuff dry and clean in the saddle and frame bag

    Maybe you can find someone local with the right size frame? Not just a Mukluk; post the dimensions and sell it so someone with a small hardtail....

    latest fatty purchase...

    Forgive the horrible cellphone photo:



    Found a Pugsley 135mm offset fork on sale over the holidays and ordered it. Took it to my parents' place to borrow my grandfather's vise, a hacksaw and 14" mill bastard so I could remove the brake bosses. Note clever/ghetto use of mismatched work gloves to protect the fork legs from hacksaw bashing. BTW I think that vise weighs more than I do!

    Next step after final sanding is to take it to a local welder with frame repair skills to have Anything Cage mounts installed, inspired by gregclimbs' outstanding work here.

    Then off to the powdercoater for some RAL 2010 "Signal Orange" to match my 9:Zero:7

    I'm not sure. According to Bill at Chain Reaction Cycles, when I asked him about the orange on my 2011 907 he said:
    049/24520
    RAL 2010
    GL/SM
    Again, that's the 2011 orange. CRC was more than happy to provide that info for me, so I imagine that they'd do the same for your 2012. Maybe it's the same color, but I don't want to give you bad gouge and leave you with an "almost" matched fork!

    I'm thinking about having handlebars coated while the fork's getting done. Anyone ever powdercoat handlebars? I've only ever seen BMX bars colored before.

    fresh set of gazzis and tubes bought from a charity that sends used road bikes to cuba.

    y'know gazzis fit in an explosif frame when they're mounted on atomlabs dhr rim?
    tried it on a lark (was planning on going the "dimple'em'yerself" route) and dry-fitted, wouldn't you know!!
    the Niner fork's definitely going back on now!

    true story!

And the best part is that I'm only about an hour north from Schlick Cycles. Keep it local brosephs.

    Fat bike related stuff that I got for Christmas from my parents, brother, and my wife. I thought pogies were dorky but they are now my favorite accessory for fat bike riding.

    Nice bike! I picked up a Mukluk 2 from the West Bank Freewheel a month ago and couldn't be happier. Those mitts look great! Are they the plus version?

    Reg. version -20. Plus version would've been to warm and I don't plan on doing any long rides when its -40, I will stay indoors and spin on the trainer during those days. I sure hope we get some snow soon or some colder weather would be nice 2.

    Ok so this is my collection so far. Getting H-Bars and a Revelate tangle bag tomorrow that I'll post, but wanted to get this pic out quick. Osprey Viper hydration pack, Bern Watts helmet with thermal liner, Cree XM-L light (magicshine ripoff copy), Keen Brixen boots, and Foxwear midweight pants in powershield pro material. I'd like to give a big thanks to Lou at Foxwear, and to Greg Smith and Tony Berger for pointing me in his direction. His pants are frickin' awesome and he answered every little question I had. Nothing like custom tailored cycling gear!, and Lou is great to work with!

    Can you spot all the newlies? Husker Du's on Rolling Darryls, Revelate gas tank (handy!), and Garmin Edge 200. All that and in a short snow storm. Perfect!

    Outdoor Research Water Bottle Parka

    I've grown tired of trying to drink cold, slushy Gatorade in the winter so I got a pair of Water Bottle Parkas and attached them to the Salsa Anything Cages on my Surly Necromancer.

    Planet Bike ARS Saddle

    I had to change out the saddle that came with my Surly Necromancer Pugsley. I know some folks love the stock saddle, but it left me "numb" in the wrong places. I picked up a Planet Bike ARS Saddle and love it! In fact, I bought two more for my other mountain bikes. You can see a review at: Planet Bike ARS Standard Anatomic Relief Saddle « All Seasons Cyclist

    Surly Nate Tires

    I got a pair of Surly Nate tires yesterday and tried them out today in the mud/snow (the temp rose to 37 degrees and ruined the trails). WOW! What a difference the Nates make.

    Oh, why not....

    I finally got everything in and switched over to a 1/8" drivetrain.

    Not long before I'l have my Pugs back together after several months on the stand.

    Low Pressure Tire Gauge

    We all strive to find the perfect tire pressure for the snow, but most of the tire gauges I own are not very accurate at low pressures.
    Cold temperatures have a great impact on the accuracy of digital tire gauges.
    The piston-plunger gauges on most bicycle pumps are affected by changes in temperature and humidity, but gauges with a Bourdon tube are not.
    Here is a product review for the gauge I like best for Fat Bikes: Accu-Gage Low Pressure Presta Tire Gauge « All Seasons Cyclist

    Great investment. Wearing summer riding gloves in the 20s you forget it is even cold until you biff it into a pile of snow

    Nice setup. Love the cranks. This is close to the setup I'm building right now. I'm going with the Middleburn RS7 UNO crank however.

    What is the rear sprocket you are running? I've been trying to figure out if the standard Afline sprocket will accept a 1/8" chain.

    The fatbike crowd....gotta love it

    Velo....thanks man. I appreciate the welcome...

    jpet....Velo's right. Get a cog and ring to match a 1/8" chain. Although you could run a 1/8 chain with 3/32 cog and ring I would not recommend it.

    You can fit a Sturmey-Archer or SRAM cog as well.

    S-A definitely make 1/8" cogs.

    I recently opened a new bike shop in SLC (beehivebicycles.com/ - sorry for the spam).

    And one thing I really have wanted for some time was in the cards (or at least finally quasi-justifiable)...



    And I have to say, for building fatbike wheels, it is awesome.

    Will take a 170mm hub without adapters. Will take a clownshoe with BFL and inches to spare.

    First wheelset I used it on already is a moonlander/alfine and I didn't have to use that silly little park tool adaptor. Just drop in the hub offset in the stand and tension it up. Check dish and go down the road...

    And not hard to get to +/-0.1mm:

    <iframe src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/36207598?title=0&amp;byline=0&amp;portrait=0&amp;c olor=ff99++33" width="900" height="675" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen mozallowfullscreen allowFullScreen></iframe>

    Very pleased with the purchase and wheels 3-5 will go through it in the next few days..

    My SANDMAN Hoggar Ti XL and me on the volcanic slopes north of Hekla (Iceland).

    Admire the straight and hardly visible tracks it leaves on the loose tephra surface - compared to the deep and erratic tracks of regular mountain bikes on the right.
