    Not scenic, but significant to me: this is home after my final commute from a job I've held for 5 and a half years... I've been waiting to switch jobs for a long time because I wanted the new one to still be within reasonable biking distance.

    With gas prices on the rise, I still say it makes sense in the long run to try and be close to work.

    I agree, traveling to work is terrible, it can turn an 8 hour day into a 12 hour day for many many people in the the Hamilton area who commute into the GTA for a job.

    When I lived in Calgary, I lived one block away from work

    No doubt. The sun warmed the goo just enough for it to bypass the fender and go straight to the frame. A nice problem to have.

    Mudflats

    I was finally was introduced to the tidal flats by an Anchorage rider that lives nearby ( thanks Tim).

    Beautiful day, looking North - long shadow at 13:00. Yes the days are getting short here in South Central AK. Not optimum riding today on the mudflats - tho' cold, 15 degrees F, the brackish tidal runoffs were still very soft...

    The Pic: Pugsley, jumble sea ice, the bluffs of Fire Island, and I believe the Tordillos mountains.

    Out and about in Nome...

    Great to see every one out and enjoying winter! The pics going up this weekend have been awesome.

    I spent almost as much time on snowshoes this weekend putting in trail as I did in the saddle. Even my rides were 50 percent hike-a-bike due to dry, unconsolidated winddrift snow. But it's all good. Finally got some snow to cover the sheet of ice we got awhile back. In week or so the sled necks and mushers will have things packed down and more rideable. Superb weather this weekend, if you like it cold. Down to -5F and not too much wind. The backlit photo of the sun over the Nome harbor, where I stopped for a stop of tea, was taken just after noon (cheers mauricio!). Yes... the days are short.

    Mukluk's first ride

    Just did my first snow ride with two friends on their Pugsleys. We rode in White Salmon, WA in the Columbia River George. Had fresh snow coming down with 4" to 10" on the trail. What a blast!!!!!!!!!!!

    White Salmon... we'll have to hook up sometime! I'm in Yakima. Theres 4 fat bikes here now (two of them are mine but I usually don't have any trouble finding a rider for my extra). You guys ever get up this way?

    This is what a forest Tri-Pod looks like

    Couldn't find a decent spot to mount my gorilla-pod onto.. so I made a tri-pod out of logs and branches.

    No snow yet here, but its cold enough. Here's where our fatbikes took us. First some trails like this.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5243524169/" title="2010-12-07 027 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5205/5243524169_bc81cdd625.jpg" width="500" height="375" alt="2010-12-07 027" /></a>



    Then some trails like this.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5244122046/" title="2010-12-07 028 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5006/5244122046_ddf78f424d_z.jpg" width="640" height="480" alt="2010-12-07 028" /></a>



    Which brought us here.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5243526041/" title="2010-12-07 031 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5168/5243526041_c5523d256a_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2010-12-07 031" /></a>



    Where we saw stuff like this...



    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5244125048/" title="2010-12-07 035 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5284/5244125048_bab069d544.jpg" width="375" height="500" alt="2010-12-07 035" /></a>

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5244126004/" title="2010-12-07 036 by Ice Cream Jay, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5203/5244126004_c4e9489659_b.jpg" width="1024" height="768" alt="2010-12-07 036" /></a>



    ....and this, poor little guy, wandered off from his pond and probably had no idea what he was heading into. No place for a turtle.

    Cool stuff ICJ! Where is this? We have small areas of "Juniper Dunes" scattered around the desert areas of eastern Washington and Oregon. Haven't rode 'em yet but they're all on my list...

    A big ass storm heading through Saint Paul right now... it's being forecasted as very large. We will see, but just in case, I wanted to get out there before it was bottom-bracket-deep.

    Yup, our snow has gone, but it won't be long before it's back...

    Finally I have SNOW!!!

    After 6 months of inpatient waiting and wanting of snow I finally have enough for a proper Christening of Pug Speedman (that's what I named my Pug). Seems where I live is the last place in Michigan to get snow and until last night the snow total was .30 inches while 60 miles west there's 18+ inches of snow on the ground!

    Anyway, here's a pic of the first snow ride of the season! I live half a mile from the White Pine recreation trail that runs 60 miles in length (I'm right in the middle) and links hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails in the winter time.

    I love the colour of your Pug, I can empathise with your inpatient waiting, over this side of the pond we currently have snow but no fat-bikes!! My Pug's not due to hit these shores until Feb/Mar by which time all our snow will be gone! :'-{

    Thanks Johnni and MiniTrail! I had the orange done just after the initial build because I couldn't stand the baby poo brown color. I love the purple too and contemplated going purple but wanted something a little...brighter! Here's one more.

    Burning daylight...

    It was great to get out while the sun was up after a week of riding in the dark. Finding time to ride when it's light can be a challenge with 3-4 hour days. Not that I saw the sun today, with the low clouds and light snowfall. Still, it was a nice day: calm with rising temps. Minus 3F yesterday; today it warmed from +8F to +15F during the three hours I spent riding along the Nome River, about 20 miles north of town.

    Thanks John @ Speedway Cycles

    First ride today in the snow, and I loved it to death.

    Took the wife along with me, on her Ragley mmmBop with 2.5" rubber, and damn that bike is super hard to keep up with the Fatback.

    We swapped bikes a few times, but mostly we rode our own bikes, she had to take a nap when we got home because she was so tired from working so hard sliding all over the place with the little tires.

    We rode across a large open field, more like I said we should race... and it took her easily twice as long to get across, the fat tires just glide over the fresh powder, and her tires just bite in and bog down.

    I love this bike so much

    Hopefully I can get some riding pictures tomorrow... then it's off for "Christmas Vacation" in Saskatchewan without my bike

    Socks courtesy of John, thanks for keeping my feet warm

    First Fat

    First Fatbike, stock Pugsley.
    Will need to make some changes, but couldn't pass it up for the price to get a great winter starter rig.

    Just did a shakedown around town. Lots to learn.
    Coming from a cross bike with 35mm Nokians, to a SS with the Extremes (will keep this on standby all winter for lake riding), now to the Pugs.

    I've found loads of those along the beach here. I believe they're used as cheap net floats. Edit: A friend who fishes lobsters tells me that the sponge balls are common tub/tank plugs.

    My week old Pugs. No snow in Los Angeles but some neat coast rides at the base of Palos Verdes. Nothing epic like Alaska, but a lot of fun!!

    Two Pugs on the top of Mt. Sheldon, the highest point in Macomb County, Michigan.

    While that sounds impressive, it's only about 920 ft. above sea level. .

    At last I can join in on this thread.

    My first fat bike UK beach ride. Video to follow









    It rode over/through deep sand that would even be hard to walk on.

    I love it

    Damn! Forgot the required tire-track shot!

    Though it was pretty powdery at 10F. Not good for tracks.

    longest ride to date. still breaking in the pugs and tweaking things. 12 miles in some new snow. a bit on sloppy pavement - but 90% of it off road. breaking trail is pretty surreal - especially when there is a great base. finding trail is another matter.

    My wife bought a Mukluk!

    I was astonished:

    She mentioned she wanted one Thursday night. That floored me enough as is...

    Friday morning, I called around, Freewheel Bike had two left, one of which was a small! They built it Friday, and we picked it up this morning.

    yesssssss

    my pug is now over 5 years old
    its gone thru untold sets of brakes, chains, cogs, etc...

    just this week I replaced the chain after about 1000 miles, which kind of blew my mind
    hoping that the cogset would still match
    but no luck
    rode it yesterday around Ft. Ord, and it jumped in a couple of gears, so its with a new chain.

    the BB isn't the best any more, I doused it in WD40 trying to smooth it out.

    a new Howitzer BB is sitting in its box, just waiting for a new crank.
    these days, my bikes are eating parts!

    Maybe you should make some "Pugapillar" stickers! Is the big "CAT" the head badge?

    will ask the gifted artist in the family to design one art for me!

    the custom stickers will be less than $15...I just need to give the guy the right sizes

    Nice decal set. I l;ike that you used the Caterpillar font throughout.
    Is the single CAT decal for the headtube, or are you sticking with the original?

    Sadly, I have no recent winter fatty shots. Sold the Pug, trying to source a Mukluk, with out a ton of luck...yet. So here's some summer shots!

    we had a pugsley team do the 24 hours of Wausau this past summer. 6 man team, and we got second in class. Certainly was awesome killing dreams that weekend.

    Thanks, I have been riding by myself lately and working on video's, there's no way anyone else would put up with me stopping and setting up angles from multiple cameras.
    I must confess the pics are stills from video shot in HD.

    Thanks! It's a motorsports trials front fender that I got off eBay from a seller called Viking Motors. Search for "Viking Trials Fender" and it'll pop right up.

    Drilled two very carefully located holes in the fender and fastened it into the 907's chainstay and seatstay bridge fender mounts using two SS capscrews, two fender washers and some nylon spacers.

    You can see the chainstay bridge mount here:

    Finally

    Well, I finally got out to do a snow ride. I had a lot of fun and got a great workout in. More snow is on its way here in Massachusetts.

    Fatties R Fine Group Ride

    My wish for a group Fatbike ride came true today, four of us on Fatbikes with one behind us on a regular MTB who shot the pic for me. The guy standing next to me is Mike Flack, maker of "Moose Mitts". Fun ride at Maybury State Park today, the snow was in great condition making some of the hills tough, and really made having Fatbikes the best choice for riding today.

    I'm sure we'll get another going, hope the snow holds out, especially for another four-day weekend next week. Today was perfect Fatbike conditions. Mike and two of the other guys who swapped the other loaner had never ridden a Fatbike in the snow before. Another guy that was behind us on a 29r said he still had a tough ride even with four of us packing the trail down.

    We were talking about doing a "Metro North" trail next, is Addison open in winter?

    How does that fender combo work for ya dirtrider? I'm thinking of using the crud-catcher in the front, but your placement is rather nice too.

    It's open, but likely to be tough sledding due to little foot traffic. Even a little bit helps a lot.

    I'll have to scout it out soon.

    On a ride between Middlebury and Shipshewana in Northern Indiana, I found the Pugsley attracted the attention of both Humans and others....



    Lots of attention!

    The front fender I found hanging on the wall at Main Bike World, it is by Sunny Wheel Ind. Co. model FLINGER , it makes the Topeak I bought last year look like a joke, much wider and super heavy duty mounting brackets, and hardware. I did have to switch the front and back due to the size of the tire, it was rubbing a little.

    I had the crud catcher in the propper place, but when I got the front fender I had to move it.
    Haven't really rode in any slop yet, but I'm ready for it when I do , I do think the cable for the front derailer was rubbing a little on it near the end of the ride, maybe I have it to tight, I'll have to take a look at it. If that doesn't work I'll move it to the other bike.

    Hi great bIkes. Was thinking about getting a fat bike for the beach however our winters seem to be getting worse as well. So are you a Jones Geordie or a Mukluk Macum (never thought I would say that!). Any way great bikes, how did you order the Mukluk? Appreciate your advice as I am considering pulling the trigger on one.
    Thanks

    im a geordie through and through

    i ordered from bikeman way back in september......

    http://www.bikeman.com/

    $1500 for the bike, $70 shipping......took 5 days when it was in stock to get to the UK then a week or so to get to my local depot who kindly took another ú250 custom charges!

    theres only 3 i know of in the UK, and no talk of releasing them over here direct, hence i ordered from the USA.

    Fatback with it's winter boots on

    Finally finished with winter set up.everything was selected and assembled by me (including the wheels,which was the first complete set i built myself) Thanks to Greg for his patience with me. and thanks to John from Speedway for his persistence with the shipping Company that kind of lost my package for a while. Speedway has a GREAT product and has recently shown to me that their customer service is on par build is under 30 lbs

    Really like this idea

    I'm still in the pre-fat phase and I really like the idea of the multi-purpose fat frame. I have a Niner MCR set up with a rigid carbon fork (Exotic) that I use for commuting, paved bike path, and fire road riding. I probably can't realistically take on a fourth complete bike by adding a fatty, so the idea of being able to change out wheels as a means of multi-purposing a frame is very appealing Now if I could just find the finances for a Ti Fatback...

    We got some of last weekends east coast storm. Heavy, wet snow, about a foot of it. The next night the winds shifted and cold air blasted out of Canada. The result was about 3 inches of hard crust on top of the softer stuff. Hard enough to ride on. I expected this bike to handle snow well, but to be able to ride right over untouched snow, floating on the crust was just, well, amazing. I guess this wet cement nor'easter snow is good for something.

    Here's my Muk, courtesy of the boys at Golden Bike Shop and my riding guru. Swapped out the stock saddle and stem for some white/silver colors to mix in with the downtube "Salsa"

    I love the Winterport boots. Didn't know guys were riding in them until I started reading this forum. I've worn them for the last couple of years anytime its cold out and now I'm riding in them. They work great all around.

    Last year's last ride...




    ... and this years first.





    More snow during the night made the trail conditions challenging.

    Last ride of 2010

    Perfect conditions for a snow bike ride. 15 inches of snow three days ago, 20 degrees last night and 43 degrees today! Very unusual for that temp in a Maine winter.

    Yesterday I took my Mukluk on its maiden voyage. I rode blown-in minimum maintenance roads in northwest Iowa. I will return home to west central Minnesota tomorrow to hit the snowmobile trails.

    I'm OK(ish) with 3 brokem ribs lots of bruises and I was knocked unconcious for up to 30 minutes before the paramedics arrived on the scene, I shouldn't have tried to jump in flats And spent 3 nights over the New Year in hospital.

    About the Mukluk all it needs is a bent brake lever and I think the Brooks saddle needs the rails un-bending a bit.

    My last post got filed under another thread of mine out of order, if you are referring to my latest post I updated the location:

    Potawatomi Trail (Silver Lake Loop) at Pinckney State Recreation Area, Mi. Remains of an old Irish homestead in Michigan.

    Thanks, I updated my post as I'm aware there is another Potawatomi Park/trail somewhere else in the US or possibly Canada.

    Nice two hour ride today. Mix of highway, beeler trails, and singletrack along the river. 11 degrees and sunny made for a beautiful day.

    I'd rather be . . .

    . . . on a coffee ride, like this lucky soul I spotted on my way to work this morning. Looked like a perfect morning to be out!

    (Sorry for the low-quality phone pic.)

    I've wanted to post here for while now. Here's a recent ride/hike. A lot of downed trees made for slow going. The dog and I were lucky not to get wet crossing the dam. It hasn't been cold for long enough. There's good ice out in the open, but not in the woods.







    I'm covered in beer.

    Wow CLONG, is that stuff any deep? Might want to consider carrying an ice pick.
