    New question here. Snow Blows

    Just bought a Trek Marlin 29er during TrekFest, but the snow is still on the ground up here in AK. Any one have any experience riding skii/snowmachine trails with a reg 29er and not a fat-tire?

    From my personal experience, unless the trails are hard packed and frozen and without studs, you will get no where fast. It is fun to try though.
    Good luck.

    I feel your pain buddy, I'm up in fairbanks, spring seems like its just right there but wont quite break. Another week or so and that breakup switch will flip, and it'll be a freaking mess outside. Im a fairweather rider though, so I cant give any tips on riding packed trails.
