    ... and if we just ... Husker Du

    Got a pair of Husker Du tires for our Mukluks. It was too dark to head to the local trails so we just went around the block. The ride seems more supple than the 27tpi Larrys and a little more easy rolling. That could be all psychological, won't really know until we hit the trails.

    5/20 update: HuDu on back is great! It seems to want to roll forever. Great grip on the back and it doesn't lock up as quickly under braking.

    You'll never be able to use another tire ever again. Unless you plan to ride on the road a lot.

    Only ordered them 4 days ago and arrived this morning, both rims weighed in at around 610g which is less than the published weight. Hope FatSno 170/135's are on the way too.

    Waaaaay-Hoooo! .. Just picked up my new Moonlander..

    I've never even seen or ridden a fat bike.. ever.. But after seeing and reading about them on the net I just had to get one.

    I'm as happy as a pig in mud.. .. Here's my first pic taken with my phone as soon as I got home from the bike shop.. Still haven't ridden it yet other than a quick whiz around the block.

    I'm looking forward to getting it out on some of our local beaches soon.

    I wanted to make sure the carpet matched the drapes so I picked up this seat to go with the green rims. Should have a photo of the complete fatness here soon for every one.

    Fresh from FedEx: Black Sheep Titanium Faith fork. 135mm OLD with front disk spacing. 908 grams with star nut.



    Should couple well with the Vertigo whenever I don't need the squish of the Lefty.

    Makes it sound like you'll be swapping forks on a per ride basis.
    Me? I pick which bike to ride based on whether I need to pump up the tires or not...

    Super nice fork. Awaiting pics and ride report!

    Per ride? Heck no! Way too much effort.

    If I ever get out to the beach where it's smooth and I don't want to worry if my bike gets dunked in the water, it'll be with this fork instead of the Lefty. Same with smoother snow rides (however rare that is), or if I want to use a 29er wheels.

    I love my Lefty (but it's a little heavy and overkill for some rides), and I loved my rigid on my other bikes (unless it got too rocky AND fast). Great to have options

    Does it require the same headset setup as the Jones? Or can you use whichever you like?

    Not totally sure of all the tech terms because all the new headset stuff befuddles me. I have a 44mm Chris King like the Vertigo on this page, but in silver. The top is inset, and the bottom has the bearings on the outside.

    Sean sent me and extra one of these thingamabobs also because he knew I had plans to get a truss style fork. I guess I put it on the bottom, and leave the top as is:


    I dropped the fork off at home and grabbed a bike to ride after work. I'll find out if I have all the parts to make it work when I get home tonight.

    I google, beg and grovel

    Sadly the above is just about true, you can buy complete bikes or frames here (Surly & Salsa) including components like tyres and rims but anything else is alien. I had a 10 email exchanged with the Middleburn importer here about the 100mm spindle cranks, hes still trying to sell me a set of X-type 83mm for a sheepstation and my first born so i gave up, i'll worry about them later.

    If you find something you want, email the shop and ask for a price to ship it here, its really only cranks/tyres/wheels/hubs that are specifically fat after you have got the frame and forks that is.
    Im still going throught the elimination process of a raw fatback or ti Carver which can be bought from the Carver importer here with the Australian levvy added on of course.

    I have a set of Hope FatSno hubs on the way from Scotland as the shop there discounted the VAT(same as GST only 15%) as the were shipping it to me in Oz and the hubs ended up the cheapest that could be bought anywhere.

    Take advantage of the high Au$ and the fact we can import anything under $1000 without duties as i dont reckon its going to last much longer

    I'm in agreement with this as well. There's simply something odd about lefty's from an asthetic standpoint (piece missing kinda thing) from a functiional standpoint no doubt they perform though.

    Lefties are weird... you don't say

    I have seriously finished a few rides and have people ask me about my lefty and i go "oh crap the other side must have fallen off on the trail, would they mind helping me look for it?" or said when I finish making the payments I get the other half, or when I get more money I'll buy the rest of the fork... LMAO

    yeah lefties are weird looking I have 4 lefties 3 on bikes I even have a rigid lefty on a 20" wheeled bike

    Those truss forks are pieces of art, i want one just to hang on the wall, like a triumph boneville side cover.... an old alfa romeo grill, some things are just beatutiful......

    Decals?

    The fork didn't have decals on it when it arrived but maybe it should so Carver gets some advertising value out there on the trail. People do notice the fork and usually ask about it.

    I've always thought Lefty's looked weird to. But they are starting to look a lot less weird on fatbikes. Somehow to me the look balances out better against the fat tires.

    Pugs has landed (sort of)

    It's been an agonizing 3 months acquiring parts for the final assem with the frameset being the latest addition. Since i'll be using a WB snowpac the NIB pug fork will be sold. (hopefully)

    ... and if we just ... It's getting close...

    With all the parts finally accumulated it was time to get the build process under way....
    I really like these pedals from Twenty6, they have foot print big enough to hold a winter boot nicely.

    A pair of Black Floyds. Not at their best in mesic heath forest where I took the picture, but rolls very smoothly in trails & asphalt (when compared to Larry/Endo combo).

    Darryl.

    I sanded them from 360 grit up to 1000 grit, then used 4 stages of buffing compound and did 3 passes at each stage. An electric drill with some attachments was the weapon I used. But a lot of it was done by hand as well.

    probably a numpty question but are you coating them with anything to help keep the finish and prevent corrosion?

    150mm x 49.57mm head tube mandrel. Going to make my own head tubes to (1) shed metal I don't need for structure, and (2) allow me to join larger diameter bamboo. This guy should pay for itself in just a handful of uses!

    Dropouts meant for Paragon slider inserts. Paragon doesn't make dropouts that have enough surface area for bonding with carbon, in my opinion - water jet cutting to the rescue. Overbuilt. I think next time I'll give it the hole treatment. As my brother would say, That's how the pros do it. I seen 'em once.

    Hubs arrived today, straight to the bike shop for spokes and built these up this evening.

    Rear 1165g, front 1070g = 2235g

    Will attempt going tubeless with Husker Du's tomorrow, if not im happy enough with the maxxis freeride tubes.

    I'm only new to these fat bikes and I get asked that all the time.. You only really notice the weight if you have to lift the bike up and lift it over a fence or something like that.. Once moving the bike actually feels light.. There may be slightly more drag on smooth surfaces but once the surface gets rough.. or sandy.. or gravel.. or even grass these bikes seem to have much less drag than other mt bikes.

    I relatively new myself and can tell you they are with out a doubt harder to pedal. Spinning up 15lb+ of rotating weight and cranking a 30-35lb+ bike up hills is definately harder than a normal mountain bike but if you were a weight weenie you wouldnt be riding one to start with and im talking trail riding not snow or deep sand BTW.

    I have ridden my Muk, 9 out of 10 rides since i got it, theres just more fun to be had riding a fat bike, forget about the weight and enjoy the ride.

    I've long been tempted to buy a Rohloff, and Paragon mildly screwed up my recent order, as though to pressure me into doing it... sorry guys, not yet.

    I just pimped my ride by adding some trick bits and bling to my Moonie.

    Thompson stem.



    Race Face carbon handlebar with Oury grips.



    Thompson seatpost with Salsa collar and Sella Italia Flight seat.



    Also a larger (203) front disc.



    Chris King headset and coloured screws on frame and fork.





    Time to ride..

    Custom Seven Cycles Titanium bar. 720mm wide, 20 degrees sweep, with the bend starting 220mm inboard from the ends. I also stripped the black off of a Thomson stem and polished it up with some Mothers Mag Polish.

    I know I'm not the first to put red wheels on a Muk2 but I do like the way they look.

    I'll probably catch crap for it, but this was my initial inspiration, my sons old Huffy Rock-It!
