    I had some beat up demo pedals on it and decided to pull them for the pic. This bike was purpose built for someone, so no brake or front der. It will eventually get a chain guide, just didn't have the etype in stock.

    I get your point.
    And i already thought something like that.
    It wouldnt look right, a cool looking brandspanking new bike with old and beaten up pedals.
    Nice one.

    The Mukluk had it's first event today, after breaking 3 of my ribs, smashing my hip and my shoulder in a crash over the New Year, knocking me unconcisious for 30 mins and putting me in hospital for 3 days.

    Here are some shots I found, The bag on the back was full of camera gear making it about 42lbs against CX bikes. I did a couple of laps and took loads of photos.

    Coastkid71, Pug meets Pug might be the koolest picture EVER! Sweet.

    With a forecast of temps in the 34 to 52 degree range for the next ten days, this may be my last good snow riding session for a while.

    A beautiful morning.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/xyvsTD-96WwLLuTUG4Wtnw?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/_0QmYnGh1Yp0/TVbY6lc35QI/AAAAAAAAA_Y/7DUZPaWiphs/s640/DSCN8325.JPG" height="640" width="480" /></a>

    Conditions were perfect on this snowmobile trail.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Jw1Oy_-xr08XCgt1tnttZQ?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/_0QmYnGh1Yp0/TVbY7xeF-YI/AAAAAAAAA_k/TOnMdvGdMRo/s640/DSCN8334.JPG" height="480" width="640" /></a>

    Here's a corny Mukluk shot.
    <a href="https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/LyfwI7SoTaU9lAdS0XGR4Q?feat=embedwebsite"><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_0QmYnGh1Yp0/TVbY8Z2GSDI/AAAAAAAAA_o/NCIdXm-13rs/s640/DSCN8335.JPG" height="480" width="640" /></a>

    Your standard obligatory fence shot.

    A large tractor/truck drove thru the park. Its tracks were a blast to ride in.

    Given that I rode alone, no action shots to be had. So instead I have a few pics of some weird stuff I found on the trail....

    A perfunctory "guard rail" for the XC skiers


    Even though alone, I was kept company by some new "friends"...


    These were to be found literally every 10 feet along all trails...


    They apparently are put there by a young man whose main mission in life is to make that particular park more inviting. He also painted the abandoned crane I pictured earlier. He has been described by the Trail Coordinator, who is a local police officer, as "harmless, but weird".

    Oh, OK. Here's a picture of the Pug leaning against my car...


    Let the market decide!

    AK Fatbikes

    Seeing some more love for Alaskan Fatbikes in Michigan, met a new fatbiker at the end of my ride today with his new 907 Al. First 907 I've seen up close:

    Tomorrow's a big day: I'm ordering a titanium Fatback frame.

    EDIT: Thanks to Tim at Speedway, my 18" Ti Fatback is ordered. And decided to have Tim add some water bottle threads behind the legs of the Fatback steel fork.

    Just added up the price of the wheelset—ouch. But...I'm selling 'em all to build "The One"—not "The Halfway."

    I had such a great ride yesterday... 10km on the local river when I was coming from work. It was a bit cold -18C and headwind.

    At the end I could not move my body anymore cause jacket was so frozen

    Hi everybody! I'm new to the site and thought I'd post my new Pug. I decided to make the jump after the insane snow storm we just got in chicago which was the first thing that's ever prevented me from riding(for one day).
    Here it is on its inaugural ride, completely stock.

    And here it is after I swapped out the grips and saddle, removed the giant outside chainring, mounted my CETMA rack and built ugly cloroplast fenders for it:

    ps, some of you may know me as rudyluciani on Flickr.

    Wasn't in the mood for the backpack, so I threw the rack and bags on and went on a 15 mile exploring trip. Good day on the bike.

    I got out Saturday for 23 miles of gravel on the Pugsley. For a heavy bike, it rides great on gravel. I really only notice the weight on climbs. But then I carry a lot of gear with me anyway.


    Bridge Shot


    Beeler Trail


    Deer antler


    Bike at rest


    Cedar River


    Hey, those look unopened...


    6 ditch beers rescued


    6 beers in a bag


    And then there were 5


    Filthy, heavy bike...

    Cheers...

    Towbike in the heart of Europe

    The surface was hard like highway. Even on meadows I enjoyed less fun I expected. But still nice x-country skying. 8-)

    Shoo, that second pic is making my toes freeze. Please get some winter shoes or at least throw a pair of shoe covers over those vents.

    It's amazing what you find on your old routes.

    I ride along this track about twice a week, but haven't done it for the last month. So today I had new eyes and spotted this just off the track. Don't know how I missed it for the last few years. There's a small cemetery off to the right.

    If your name is Davidson, this is where your clan chiefs are buried.

    Thanks for the concern icecreamjay, I have a nice set of Sidetrack toe covers. I have a good system, I can ride down into the single digits before I add the covers. I wear sock liners (2 weights) and have socks of different weights for various tempeture. I have had great success with my system. I haven't needed the toe covers in a really long time, It rarely gets below five degrees here.

    Cheers,

    It's a Maxpedition 10x4 bottle holder with a Nalgene bottle inside. I though I might need extra water if I stopped to cook oatmeal.

Yeah, Surly f%&ked up when they designed the Big Dummy with no option of running fatbike meats, I agree, but I don’t think there’s enough strength left in that bottom section for proper cargobike needs. Looks incredibly badass, though!

    The crust is the best part...

    Nome has had plenty of snow this year, seems like a blizzard a week, but not enough traffic to keep the trails in shape for biking. The amount of time I've been spending on the road has had me less than thrilled. But the last storm changed all that. It came in wet and warm and on its heels was a big frigid high thats supposed to stay in place most of the week. Normally, rain on snow sucks, but when all that wet snow freezes into a nice rideable crust - who needs trails? Today's ride was pretty much point the bike in any direction and go. Not as good as the stuff tscheesy and barney had us drooling over awhile ago, but close (sans Kodiak's spectacular landscape). It was a grand day of 'sperimentin' and 'splorin'. Stuffed some qiviut (musk ox wool) I gathered last summer into the toes of my size 15 Columbias and was surprised how warm my feet stayed at -5 for 3 plus hours - without Neos. I may be on to something. I even ran into a herd of the wooly Pleistocene beasts. Heading out again tomorrow. Too much fun!

    I hear they lactate pink milk. Did you get close enough to find out? A water-bottle full would be enough evidence in my book.

    It's the least I could do in exchange for the stellar vid you post here. A worthy goal for today's ride.

    Pink, huh? Hadn't heard that. The closest I to one was years ago when a friend and I on snowmachines crested a hill and accidentally found ourselves in the middle of a herd. The herd ran off (too surprised to circle up I guess) and abandoned one young fellow with umbilical cord attached. He imprinted on my machine and crawled up in the tunnel, like he was under mom's skirt. Had to pull him out and it was hard to get him to stop following us.

    Enjoy the Anchorage trails. Looking forward to your next release.

    I watched your video, it was great. Is that a Jones H Loop bar? How do you like it? Thinking of putting one on my Pug.......

    Yep it's a Jones Loop in alloy.

    I like it a lot. Seems much nicer that the standard H Bar. The rear sections are a lot longer and you get a lot more hand positions.

    I'm a big fan of Jeffs bars though.

    Y'know how some dude or dudette blows a fat wad of cash on some new Sparkly and gushes about how great it is...and ya kinda feel like all the gush is probably linked to the fact that Sparkly was just stupid expensive?

    Yeah...

    Well, the Jones bars, though expensive, aren't like that. Worth the money, in my opinion. My Jones Loop (ti) is the only thing that I'm keeping from my Big Dummy (yep, The Goat's for sale).

    The Jones Loop is my favorite bar ever. OK, so I'm gushing a bit. 3 years riding with it gives me a bit o' gush room, I hope.

    Sunshine, mountains, waterfalls and hot springs

    I'm a lucky man! This trailhead is 10 miles from my house, and then a snowmobile road takes me 10 miles up and in to the hot springs pool. (Sure feels longer on the way out though, after soaking and after the snowmobiles have loosened up the track.) Yesterday was sunny and beautiful, and I finally remembered to bring my camera. Why oh why did I wait so long to buy a fat bike? Hope the photos are as inspiring to you as they are me.

    By the way that is still one of the coolest 907's I have seen.

    I love it. The most fun I've had on a bike in years. Did the John Muir loop at the Kettles at the end of last summer and it did fine. The handling was a little sluggo, but that's not really what I bought it for...I'm a pretty serious winter rider. Easily kept up with my buddy who was on a hardtail 26er.

    I think it's a good value, though I did go back and forth a little between this and the Alu Fatback.

    Thanks I went back and forth as well. Had a Pug so the parts will cross over and 907 answered my email and Fatback didn't. I have my Epic for fast summer but I love my Fatty and just want it to be a capable summer bike as well. I would like to take it on the last lap of the Wausau24 this year (if the time doesn't matter).
    Thanks for your help........Bob

    From this morning. Woods after the rain and cold were nice. Almost able to ride my entire morning loop. 1 more day of compressing some single track and it will be sweet. And then I'll move on to some other sections and get them packed in.

    Spent all day yesterday stripping my 29er down to the frame and replacing components worn out in the StrathPuffer 24 hour. Looked lovely all nice and polished and I was really looking forward to taking it out today.

    Got up, stuck helmet on, opened the shed, looked at the 29er and took out the Pug.

    Turned into a long day, several hours later I was here.


    The traffic was horrendous though. I saw 4 logging trucks and 2 other cyclists in the day, must be what rush hour is like in the city.

    Looks like a great place to get lost for a couple of hours. Bummer about the traffic though.

    Sweet ride at Cape Cod National Seashore today. Surprised how much singletrack there is in the inland forests. Anyway we rode north over singletrack, powerlines and the Kings old highway (the part that isn't Route 6 now), an old dirt road from when we still had a king. Then we popped out onto the beach and rode south with a tailwind back to Marconi Beach.

    And this is what the parking lot looked like I love winter.

    Then back into the woods for some more trails back to the truck.

    Looks like a great day for a ride.
    I love the way those big tires allow her to balance there so well.

    Today's ride, a fire road cruise.

    Gnarly tree, the sole survivor of the forest (every thing else had been chopped down) - why?

    17" fell overnight.
    And its still coming down fierce.

    I made it about 5 miles. Cafe for a coffee and bagel, followed by helping dig out a few people trying to drive, then a stop at the bank to deposit some $$.

    Crazy. Side roads were workable only in tire tracks. Main avenue nearby was plowed, sort of.

    It was tough getting up enough speed in the soft snow to cross the Teeter Totter, what a fun day.

    You can't have everything...

    Crappy pics from a great ride. Crust is holding up pretty good, but plenty of soft pockets that make you wish for hundies. When snow is blowin' those tripod placed every 50 yards are the only way to stay on the trail.

    I couldn't find "Nightly fatbike pic thread", so I post these pics here.
    I try to capture the Milky Way, but there was too much light pollution.

    We had a drop of snow today.



    This is from the same spot as one I posted the other day


    There's a whole mountain hidden behind that hill.


    Probably lose it all tomorrow, there's going to be sleet but it should be followed by heavy snow.

    I guess I'm not riding the bridge to North Dakota today. No footprints in the snow crossing the river either, so I didn't even bother trying. Warm temps coming this week, and record floods are expected later this month, so they raised the bridge to keep it out of the water.

    Knik Glacier Today

    It's still winter here! Pictures by Tom Schmid. 20 mile round trip to get to the glacier. 6F at the start 26F at the finish. Perfect day. Studs would have been nice on the lake ice but Fat was good everywhere else.

    I'm no good at the self-timed ones.

    Loads of photos of half a back/front wheel

    Need a camera with a remote.

    Awesome bike. Great pictures!

    Is that the road to Lincoln Gap?

    Velobike - I had a few shots where the timing was off and I had ridden too far by the time the camera took the pic. Definitely a bit of trial and error.

    Shoo - It's Smuggler's Notch, between Stowe and Jeffersonville.

    Bmike - Nice shot on the lake. The notch stays pretty well packed from all of the ski/snowshoe/snowmobile traffic. There's plenty of snowpack up there, it should be good to ride as long as it gets cold enough overnight to crust things over. I went from the Stowe side to the top and back down. I'd like to do it again, but go end to end and back. Let me know if you'd like to join me.

    I'd consider it, as long as you promise not to wait on me... pretty slow going in the lungs and heart as of late. Would love to explore up there for sure.

    Hows the mountain road? Would love to try that too... if we get a good spring freeze after the skiers pack it down.

    Thanks VT Mike. Duh! When I went back and looked I saw your title. I was caught by your stunning bike after that my eye went to the curvy sign and then I scrolled down and never saw the title.

    bmike, I'm going to do that Notch ride either Saturday or Sunday, probably start late morning, maybe 10:00 or so. Should be a 2.5 - 3 hr ride. I sent you a PM a day or two ago, not sure if you got it. Get in touch with me if you'd like to come along.

    The snow is melting here, so I thought I'd chase it to get the last of it for this winter.

    It involved a bit of climbing...



    The snow on the lower levels was variable, going from wet to crunchy to icy and back depending how much shade it had.


    After almost completing my loop, I was looking back over my ride and already the snow had almost vanished from some areas


    I decided not to waste the opportunity for my last snow so went higher and started another loop on to the moors at the base of the mountain


    Some of it was not rideable - the snow was lying on top of wet boggy ground so I had to push*, but it was worth it


    It was interesting how some of the high ground was clear when I had been kneedeep a bit lower


    And this being Scotland, there were interesting ruins


    *I probably spent 1/2 hour pushing through kneedeep stuff - that's really frustrating. Increased my admiration for the guys who do the Iditarod and similar races.

    Here's a couple photos from my camp out last night. Rained and stormed all night. Sideways rain... blew through my tent vents and a couple seams were dripping a little by morning. I was dry and warm in my Gortex bivy. Broke camp in the rain and got SOAKED on the ride home this morning.

    Pugsley loaded up.


    The bike has been a work is progress from when I got is as a complete. Brooks B-17, Surly Open Bar, Sunrace thumbies, JANDD rack.



    That's a military sleep system with Gortex bivy tied to the top of my Carradice Nelson Longflap. I thought it would ride terrible with the weight up that high, but I didn't notice it.



    GoLite Hex 3 tipi. I love this tent, but I have a Hennessy Hammock on order right now too.



    Vans Classics are TOTALLY AWESOME!!!

    Hey Mike, do you ever get hassled by snow-mobilers when you're riding VAST trails? I live in Stowe (I assume you're in the area too based on the Smuggs shot), but I've held off getting a fat bike partly because I wasn't sure where to ride one besides VAST trails (but mainly because I can't afford one!). I XC ski a lot on their trails, particularly at Cotton Brook, but I've never seen anyone on a fat bike while I'm out there...

    No hassles yet, but I got my bike late in the season and ride at times that are probably low traffic for snowmobiles, so I've really only had a few pass by me on the trails. I'm mostly riding in Waterbury, south of Little River State Park, and down into Duxbury a bit. The VAST website has a paragraph about being respectful of other trail users on trails in the Green Mountain National Forrest, so I guess those are multi-use trails. I would think the same goes for trails on State Forrest land (which Cottonbrook is), but I'm not really sure about that. I rode a section of VAST trail in Bolton today between Notch Rd and Stage Rd. That was marked as some kind of conservation land, and the trail looked like it had more traffic from people on foot and xc skis than snowmobiles. I think the trails on private land are only supposed to be used by snowmobiles mainly because that is all that VAST requests permission for in their landowner agreements.

    That being said, when I'm riding VAST trails, I move to the edge of the trail and stop any time a snowmobile goes by, and I use a flashing red tail light on the bike. They are snowmobile trails after all, so I have no problem yielding to the primary trail users.

    Simple ride today, plugging around local farm tracks and woods. Forecast was heavy rain, but I went out anyway and got mainly sunshine. Score!

    Ran into 2 cars today, the Pug defeated them.






    Then ran into a house, the Pug defeated that.




    And then found where the pot of gold is hidden.




    Luckily I found somewhere to play as well.




    and the Pug met an old friend

    Holy Crap, I'm in So Cal and don't ride sometimes because it's cold out. Next time I think it's cold out, I'll think of you.
