    ^ 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

    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.

    Warm day in Santa Cruz last weekend. Wonderful conditions, no one around. Good to get out and ride 4 months post-op. Need to get fitted for my new bike though (Mojo HD), because it's sooo much fun and I want to maximize what I can do it on it

    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.

    Love all the little details you use to personalize your bikes! How's the Pugsley treating you since you've had some time in the saddle?

    Well I couldn't get the jumping pic to upload, but here's one from yesterday's ride while I screwed up the courage to descend this. I made it, but it looks much worse from this angle than it really is. Been splitting my time this winter between DH and XC and probably spending more time on the DH bike, which is just way more fun!

    Oh how I miss that terrain and weather. Don't get me wrong, winter and rock gardens can be cool but I miss that open ground. West coast?

    Yikes, I would be scared to ride that close to open water. How did you decide it was OK? Follow someone bigger? Or was it shallow and pretty warm like it was here yesterday (30F)? The glare ice shot is impressive!

    I went to Uberwintern, a fatbike event in Stowe Saturday, and the trails were great! This spot is called the Green Chair and has a great view of the mountain.

    Yesterday I took the dog biking on local trails and was really happy he did not chase any critters and was very well behaved when we met skiers and walkers.

    The ice is several inches thick (we've had a couple weeks of freezing temps) but it's true you don't want to get too close to the edge. In some sections you can see the multiple layers of ice (which looks like escarpment rock) Although I've been riding on the ponds and rivers for 4-5 year (some years did not get cold enough to freeze) I only ride with experienced riders who know the conditions and safe sections. I've developed more confidence so I'm ok riding near the open sections.

    It's a ton o'fun! On the last ride, we had 11 people in our group. 6 riders had never experienced ice biking before and all reported they couldn't wait to go out again !

    Studded tires are best on ice. 3 folks in our group rode fat bikes, no studs. The fat bikes did well on snow covered sections but not so well on glare ice and off camber stretches. It's also better to run less air pressure in the tires. After some trial and error (many wipe-outs) riders were letting more air out of their tires.

    Wow! I commute year round but it only gets down to high 40's here. Gets quite wet and nasty though.

    ^^ Cool! Cold wet rain is plenty rugged and worse in some ways! At least at -17F, you and the bike stay clean and dry!

    No pic for my ride today but all week I have been hitting the local rail-trail in the snow. Nice super-cold powder snow, about 7 inches and 10 deg. It got a little rough today when it was all tracked up by a snow mobile, oh well. At least the scenery was picturesque with the light coming through the trees and glaring in on the creek beside.
