    Nice to see your ride report and pic Stripes! So glad you are able to enjoy the trails more now. I'm curious - what chainrings/crankset did you get? Did you have to change derailleur at all? I too am using the lowest possible Shimano XT 2x10 gearing and completely agree - it leaves much to be desired on steeper climbs. Mr. Shred doesn't seem to notice, of course. But I do.

    Yes,I'm in central VT. Here it changed to rain this morning, but I stayed home getting ready for company. Hope they get here soon, as it's down to 32F now. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving everyone!

    Unseasonably warm weather today in upstate New York. Did a nice 2 hour solo ride at Chenango Valley State Park near Binghamton. Felt amazing to get back out on the bike again after a brutally busy semester that didn't allow me to ride as much as I would have liked. Also the first ride on my bike since I rebuilt my fork..happy with how it feels.

    ^^ for some reason i thought you were in wyoming? or was that somebody else?

    btw, got a fat bike only had it less than a week, and i've had three rides. the snow is starting to get a little slushy so i need some colder temps to firm it up. then it's game on!

    Nice fatty, selfie, and a cute pup too, Nicole. Sadly this weekend's rain, freezing rain, and temps as high as 45F has just about killed our snow for fatbiking here in central VT. I have about 2" left in the yard but it may not survive the day. Then I see we're back to below zero tomorrow night.

    Wow! I see you rollin' and I'm hatin'...hating the fact that you got a fat bike and I want one! Nice pics. You're smaller, so tell me how the Pugsley feels?

    CVSP - my stomping grounds, too. I'm originally from Bingo but now live in Ithaca. However, I frequent CVSP most weekends. I recognized those trails right away - nice pics .

    ^ How does it handle? I've been interested in the XS Mukluk, in part because I wanted to get into off-road bike touring. I think Fatback also makes a bike down to 14"? But it's really $$$.

    i've only had it a week, and it's been less than stellar conditions. the good thing about the pugs is that the lowest model, still has decent wheels and tires (something that many budget fatbikes need upgrading). The mukluk is a bit more pricy. the major diff between those two, is i believe geometry. The mukluk is slacker.

    Ice storm here in southern Ontario... so what to do but check out the conditions!

    Every home had a tree that cracked and broke branches under the weight of the freezing rain building up on the trees

    Beautiful effects

    Checking out the river valley

    We rode in the open areas because of the danger of falling branches.

    Found a schoolyard with glare ice. Thank you studded tires

    ^^ Awesome pix, story, and exploring. Hope your power is on, some further north in VT don't have theirs back on for Christmas from last weekend's ice here.

    Rang in the new year with one of my favorite rides- headed out from my house and rode up and around and back down the mountains which bisect El Paso. Couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day.
