    Hundies from ChoppersUS. The tire's pretty snug in the Pugs' stays, but I really like them.

    Fat Tire Ballerinas

    This is our Fat Tire Ballerinas (ad hoc biker gang in Whitehorse, Yukon). As you can see, a lone male snuck onto our group ride.

    A bunch of bike chicks cycling together. I'm not sure if one should envy or pity that lone male.

    Finally got out on my new Carver Semi-Fat setup on Sunday. Rode a rail trail and some powerline doubletrack for a few hours, lots of fun! Details on the bike are in a new thread I just started, enjoy:

    Below zero centigrade is too cold for toes, or not?
    What about balance? It looked to me as to unstable that I stopped thinking about it...

    I thought about similar built but I bought at the end http://mur.rajce.idnes.cz/PUG/ and bent I use only in lower snow http://mur.rajce.idnes.cz/2009-12-19...a_cyklostezka/ [-14°C, Schwalbe IceSpiker, the same Answsers You have]

    Nah, not very deep and I was close to home. Worst case I would have to wade in to rescue the dog, then go home wet. I definitely considered the possibility before moving on.

    Smile Checking in from Norway

    Most of these are taken on or around our "farm" in western Norway. I've only recently purchased the Pugs and unfortunately conditions have not been ideal; either very deep, powdery snow or slick ice on all of the trails and service roads. We have some better hard pack conditions today but it is coming down fairly thick at the moment, so I am on my way out the door!



    Pugsley on tractor duty



    The road down to our boathouse.



    From our dock. No rideable beaches here!



    Signposts for cycle route 1, also part of the North Sea Cycle Route.



    Tough going in all the fresh powder.





    And time to turn around at the water's edge.

    Slow going this morning... fresh snow. Had to see how / where I could ride.
    Almost easier in the woods without having anyone walked or skied where I needed to go...

    Blizzard conditions yesterday in Southern New England. Spent the day shoveling and snowshoeing. This morning brought bluebird conditions. Here's the Fatback in its native environment.

    Saturday I started out at the Garden Drive in, there were some footprints in the snow, but it wasn't packed down, and was really slow going.


    I fought through the pain in my knee and after a few miles it went away, I stopped at the old Train Station.


    Old Train Bridge across the Creek.


    An Antique International Farm Tractor.


    S.C.I. Retreat


    A stop at a boat launch.


    Would you believe there was a guy out on the River in a Canoe!


    I found a Million Dollars on the side of the road!


    I made it 8 miles one way, had a cup of Coffee and what tasted like the best Bannana Nut Muffin the World! Then the long trek back to the truck.

    Does that front fender fit turned round the other way? Seems like it was give more coverage from road slop coming up if the longer bit fit under the down tube.

    I tried it the other way, and it was so long it was rubbing the tire, I'm thinking about bending the bracket just enough so I can mount it the right way.

    Don't think I'll be racing it much but it's still a blast.

    Spent an hour riding on Lake Mendota here in Madison today. Need to adjust my layering some more.

    Probably going to take off the front rack and put on some Epic Designs bags for storage. Had a blast out there today!

    wasn't so pleasant or fun though a rear flat in km 8 of 30 made it very unpleasant...you got some mud too eh?...I never tried that until today...the added weight on Larrys wasn't pleasant either.

    Action pics weren't shoot with my camera...will try to get them tomorrow.

    A few miles in to a short Saturday trip.




    Moo



    I waited as I ate some dried cranberries and granola, but no Marmots came to cross.



    Close, but so far... Actually, not that far. Just a few miles left.



    Ahhhh... Maroon Lake and the Bells. Not many get to see this spot in the winter.

    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.

    That is so sweet, Frosty! Can I pick your brain about the Bar Mitts? If not, no biggie, and thanks for posting those pics. If so... Would you buy those Bar Mitts again? Trouble getting in/out or shifting? What temps do you ride with them on the Pugs? I've seen so many brands - and home made versions - just confused about what would work well here in CO. Thanks and peace.

    JSD, I don't think you need them for what we ride. A couple weeks ago my fingers were still toasty in my Pearl Izumi Amfibs after 4 hours of below zero. But what you do need are some of these:

    Heh... I agree, for the most part. But there are times, when I'd prefer to not have bulky gloves and might prefer the mitts. Like -22 with wind chill...

    And what am I supposed to get.. the XTR brakes.. or the grips.. or the bar? I might call up James (BS) and ask him if he can make me something sweet... I'll ride this stock one for a bit and see what I would change.

    Thanks JSD.

    Pogies are great. Bar Mitts are a very good brand. I like the neoprene. I can ride without gloves at zero, but not for long as the tops of my hands get a bit cold and the neoprene rubs back and forth on that spot. With a small set of North Face Windstopper gloves, I am cooking at any temperature. I have used them in (-21F). I would buy them again. I like them alot and they are my first pair. Moose Mitts are also a valued brand. They have a bit more space for some food and a pocket for a hand warmer I guess. They also have a shell that people believe would stand up to trees and such a bit better. Too much for me. I can put a sleeve or two of cliff blocks in them. Carried my sunglasses in one a bit the other day, but they got in the way after a bit.

    No trouble shifting and braking as you can just wear your standard mountain biking gloves. Nothing gets in the way for Gripshift anyway. I can't see triggers being an issue. I went over the bars on Saturday going pretty fast. I came out of the Mitts just fine, but did leave a glove behind in one. That would be typical for my "system" as the gloves I use are intended to come off very, very easy. I have it so I can choose to pull my hand out of the pogie with the glove or without the glove based on the circumstances. No issue with getting your hands stuck. They are also great for braking as that can be troubling with bigger gloves. I find they are great for commuting as well. I use the same gloves that I use for hours of riding in -20F and for commuting in the morning at 25F. They stay on the Pugs all winter.



    And all that aside, they are just sort of fun. They are people pleasing. They will add to your "hardcore level" street cred. More people will say, "Man, you are crazy!". "Hey everyone, this guy over here is freaking crazy!"



    Too many words... I best throw in another pic.

    JSD303, I love my Bar Mitts, but they're very temperature dependent. Are you at less than 20F often? I had a buddy take my bike for a spin while at an ice race the other day, he thought they were electrically powered =P

    Hand/shifting maneuverability is plenty with thin full finger bike gloves on.

    Snowy Day in Milwaukee

    Had my Schlick North Paw out on the trails along the Milwaukee River today. It was a beautiful day with fresh snow.

    Drew Diller - Thanks for the mitts response. Much appreciated. I kinda figured there would be days they would be way overkill - and days in CO where they would come in handy. I think the fact that they can go on and off the bars pretty quickly would make them useful and a great thing to pack in my uber camelbak just in case.

    gomez - I never tire of seeing your Pugs - clean and beautiful. Those Mitts look awesome, too. I'm thinking about throwing racks on the pugs for fenders and for carrying stuff. I usually use a big camelbak when riding, but I could see distributing some of that weight front and rear on racks could be useful.

    Fat bikes rule!!!

    I too recently bought some Bar Mitts,not that it is often that cold here to need them in Scotland (-18C during the freak cold snaps) but for wet weather riding on Beaches,
    Damp wet days on the coast feel colder than dry frosty -C days,
    I can just wear thin liner gloves and have toasty hands, there ace

    I never seem to be able to pedal hard enough to lift the front high enough. I know it's a timing thing but I always get it wrong.

    The closest I got was while drunk.

    A beautiful southern desert day. About 40F start, nearly 60F by end of ride. In the first shot you can see the road I rode back (just above stem) and the arroyo full of deep soft sand I was floating blissfully along. Trailhead is at the right end of the closer line of rocky hills.

    I feel fat in New York City

    Crappy cell phone picture:




    Overlooking the Lasker Ice Rink, on top of Harlem Hill in the North Wood of Central Park. It was almost like not being in a city of 8 million people for a while this morning...



    Kinda-fat bike:

    Surly 1x1=11
    24" Large Marge Rims
    Felt Berm Master tires, 24x3"
    Red: MUni pedals, Oury grips, THE fender, Salsa QR seatpost clamp, Surly 1x1 hubs, bottle cage & Pake top tube pad (a little salute to hipsters).
    GoPro HD cam mounted to the stem, but I haven't had a chance to mess with the videos I took yet.

    Lessons learned for today:
    - too much air in tires
    - I ride for 2+ hours but all of the grime comes from the last 2 blocks to my apartment
    - need another bottle cage

    Blairadam forest, Kelty, Scotland - Sunday morning dog walk/ride..

    Initially bought as a single-speed, but now fitted with gears! The fat tyres make a real difference as to what I can ride and what I've got to walk/push! I mainly follow the horse trails which are usually churned up. With the Pugsley I can clear section which I normally sink up to my rims on the 29er. Not played about with tyre pressures too much, but there is definitely an increase in grip. The dog enjoys our trips into the woods too!

    Yes, totally uncommon for the Monterey area this time of year! On the 17th we (the boys and I) took the wife for her Skip Barber driving school class, it was 80°F in the infield/pit area!!!

    My camera still isn't playing along out on the trail, but here's one at home with "the good camera." All ready to go for the Arrowhead. I'll have some food and a few other things on me under layers, but other than that everything is tucked away on the bike this year.

    Finally got to take the new Pugsley out to hit the trails yesterday. I now understand what everyone has said, you just can't help but grin from ear to ear when riding this bike...

    '07 Prophet 3
    96' Killer V 900ht
    04' F700sx

    A couple from Yesterday's ride. First ride since I managed to stuff Larry in the back on my Carver 29er.

    Got out last evening to a small suburban trail which is about 3.5 miles from my house.

    The arrows really help with the snow


    An old crane left in the flood plane to rust away. Some local "artists" have made sure it was noticeable.


    An overlook on the mostly-frozen Clinton River

    Did a nice long, relaxed ride to the beach today. Weather was worse than forecast, but it didn't keep me in. I love my fatbike.

    What's the make/model of shifter ya got there, Elderberry? Looks like a Shimano bar-end model with different colored parts.

    Oh, that ol' thing? Just a set of cheap SunRace friction thumb shifters I found after scouring the parts room at the shop. Not sure of their year of manufacture. They've actually got a really positive ratchet feel. We'll see how long they last.

    I've been using those same shifters on my Big Dummy year round for 2 1/2 years now. I love them! I have some similar ones on my K Monkey that came off an old Huffy. I've been using those for over 3 years.

    Thumbies are like cockroaches.... you can't kill them

    ^Yeah, I s'pose there's not much that can go wrong. Been diggin' em so far. It's weird when I get on any bike with indexed triggers, now. I just wanna yank that chain around wherever I want, but am restricted by The Click.

    Late start, frozen front mech (or shifter, I answered the call of nature on the front derailer twice to no avail - so middle ring for the ride!), frozen Camelback hose, then leaking Camelback. Quite a few snowmos out. Really loud brakes on the Pugs. I'm guessing they need a cleaning after the car topping salt / spray. But they were really loud today, disturbing the peace in the forest (until the snowmos came through...)

    Lots more to learn about winter travel. But all good.

    I think my Pug is now 5 years old, and I've had the racks set up for just about the same.

    they are really freaking strong.
    I have zero complaints
    setting up the front rack was kind of interesting
    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=179026

    racks vs frame bags
    it really depends on what you want to carry

    honestly, the racks I have just sit.
    but I have a hard time wanting to sell them, I know the shipping would be stupid, and then next thing you know... I'd probably want them back on The Pug...

    Nice Racks are killer

    Took a ride today started off at Kirby Park.


    A Fire Trucksley



    Rode through the park, then hit up all the trails behind the park.

    Words of wisdom.



    Down by the River


    Shhh be very very quiet, Pugsley Tracks



    By the Train Bridge.





    Went out to the end of the Dike by the Cross Valley, rode the Dike back, then went over Main Bike to see Chuck, and get my Salsa Q.R. for the Pugsley.

    Cannon by the 109th Armory.

    Pug-a-lug.

    Loaded up with a little unplanned Rasta style.



    Gotta get it set up... get set up before the area gets dark. The temperature will drop 30 degrees in an hours time after the area becomes engulfed in shade. It took longer to get to the spot than usual due to huge snowfall. Still have much to do, and the snow isn't even solid yet... much post holeing and repairing of post holeing was done while setting up and sorting and snowshoeig for some firewood. WooHoo... the luxury of a fire will be nice indeed.



    Go gadget go! Good thing I brought the snowshoes to stomp the snow so it could sinter up, but it was a lot of work. The snow is 6 feet deep. Deep, endless snow really adds to the issues of the day.

    I am liking it. If you put about 20 snow stakes in it, and let them set up for several hours, it will hold tight in a decent storm... It is a little different than what I am used to, but it is big and light... even with the floor.

    I am interested in a Kifaru stove (small)... Are you still using one? (I stumbled into your YT channel doing Kifaru research) I would have to have a pipejack sewn into the GoLite, but I believe it could work great.
    Yes, steel is most certainly stronger than aluminum EVERY time.

    the stoves are great.
    having a heat source inside a tent with venting and all that...
    is a completely different camping experience
    not to mention you can pile rocks around/ontop of the stove
    dry out clothing, etc...
    its crazy

    It's hard when your almost allways riding by yourself.

    Here's a couple from Yesterday.

    Unfortunately, as fat bikes are still relatively rare, it is often difficult to find others to join on rides, and it is really difficult to take a pic of one's self while actually riding. So in most cases, you'll just have to put up with the leaning fat bike look. Sorry.

    I'm at the Library and can't right click or view page source.. so links to Pinkbike had to be posted.

    I've been commuting for a week on some snow covered trails to work every day, and love it!

    Spotted this rack in the used rack pile... and it fits dead perfectly on the dropouts without any stretching/squishing.

    I would say that's it!

    It's not a flimsy rack either, and if you're keen, could probably bolt/weld on some reinforcements for side to side flex if you want to overload it a bit.

    Pretty gnarly storm heading through Wisconsin right now ... 30-40mph winds, icy snow, drifting like mad out there. Started out the ride from work by walking through a series of 4' tall snow drifts a little after 6pm. This photo taken on my last stretch before home after we closed down the shop early tonight.

    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/paranoidbadger/5409761810/" title="Untitled by G e o cycle, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5054/5409761810_fb1840b5da_z.jpg" width="640" height="478" alt="" /></a>

    Downright EERIE out there now. Massive winds, can't see more than 10 feet out my windows. Should be rather interesting tomorrow - a lot of the city sounds like it's shutting down!

    ^Did you actually ride 'tween those logs? That's awesome.

    Rode with a buddy on his SS mtb with 2.3's. He was fine on the super packed stuff, but when the going got a little looser I pulled away and took the opportunity to get a rad photo of the Lake Street bridge. You can see him walking just to the right of the tree in the center.

    Then bombed some stairs.

    All in all a good time.

    First ride with my new 27" Groovy Ti Luv Handles. I have to say that I had more front wheel control into today's soft snow.

    University of Wisconsin campus in Madison. Not where one would usually expect a fatbike, but this location is right near the lake.

    Is it possible to hit the lakes yet? We get a crust of hardpack to ride on? I'm itching to ride across!

    Some places are rideable, but they're mostly a pretty miserable mess at the moment. A couple inches of crust on top with several inches of really soupy slush underneath. The ice cover is plenty thick under all that. Hoping the cold will firm it up this week, and that the warmth next weekend will collapse it and maybe re-freeze. Time will tell.

    Indeed. On this ride we hopped off the paved path and it took me probably a half mile to realize that I'd ridden this particular trail before. Best winter ever!

    ^Very nice. Did you get deep in the mayhem or mostly observe? I did the latter at one of the stops in South MPLS and it was pretty nuts.

    I've never seen that thing in person, and that's a shame. We should fix that. Ride sometime?

    Pictures are every time from many cameras and are nonsorted. These people were on fatbike mostly for the first time, so there are plenty of bikes and bike parts.

    Went for a 3+ hour ride today. High was about 6-7ºF - getting out of the city was alright, but once I got far enough onto the State Trail that's been groomed for snowmobile use it was just a blast. I don't think the few people I saw out there expected to see a cyclist.

    Had my own little crust cruise today, we've had a few thaw/freeze cycles and the last blast of cold air just froze everything solid, the best riding was the untouched stuff on the sides of the trails.
