    Winter does not want to let go! Pictures from my ride tuesday. Right now it is gusting to 80 and snowing sideways outside. Spring is out there somewhere.

    Last Snow

    Today was probably my last snow ride of the season - temps are supposed to get up to 70 by Monday. My plan was to ride some of the higher elevation snowmobile trails in Camel's Hump State Park, starting at the top of Camel's Hump Rd. But we got 2" of new snow the day before while temps were well above freezing, so the old snow underneath never firmed up in spite of it dropping into the upper teens overnight. After 20 min of working way too hard to keep a super slow pace on a moderate climb, I turned around and took the snowmobile trail in the (mostly) downhill direction. Then it was a nice easy ride back up the frozen dirt road to my truck.

    VTMike - awesomeness. I'll have to get out there next year. Here in BTV I've been dodging the remaining ice and have been thinking about road bikes and the single speed again! Such a difference from my location to just 20 miles east in the mountains!

    Some of us are having to tough it out with no snow...

    I dislike artificial stuff, I'd sooner ride through the bog.



    The road less travelled...


    I could live here

    Great day for a ride today.

    We still have a bit of snow.

    Downtown Anchorage trails are getting thin in spots but this is 1 hour south. The crust gets soft in the afternoon but it is great in the morning.

    The Fatback has landed!

    Fork = Fatback carbon
    Hubs = Hadley
    Crank = The Hive
    Rims = UMA II
    Seatpost & Stem = Thompson

    It's not quite done but Geno @ OneOnOne released it into my custody over the weekend. I was expecting a great bike but I completely underestimated how fun this one is to ride.

    Urban Camouflage

    Not exactly the scenic northwoods....

    Deer trails and rogue pathways in this 5-mile swath of ground just outside downtown Minneapolis (city and 'burbs either side of the trees)...who knew? Now that I'm looking, I do! The above bit of graffiti is somewhere in the woods to the left.

    Bogs as a substitute for snow?

    Went out and killed myself yesterday on my fixie round the mtb track - not a good idea - plenty mincing and cursing

    So to make up for it, I took the Pug out to check out a disused track which is now overgrown and boggy and learned a lesson. The lesson? You can't be prepared for every eventuality.

    I was riding through some heather when a small piece got caught in the disc and ended up in the calliper. It pulled out easily enough but then every time the wheel turned there was a ticking noise. After much faffing around I realised it was coming from the calliper, so I pulled it off the bike to check it. Somehow the heather had got under the small spring clip that keeps the pads apart and bent up the first few millimetres at right angles. This was catching on the holes on the disc. None of the tools I had with me were suitable to fix it although I did manage to flatten it slightly. I couldn't get the pads out with my fingers, so in future it looks like I'll have to carry a small pair of pliers as well.


    Achterneed to Rogie track - not used these days.


    In the forest, loads of fallen trees and debris across track


    140 year old rail bridge. Have to ford here - it would be difficult in wet weather.


    Not a good place for a breakdown (disc brake)


    More bog

    Velobike, Love the green in your picture. The attached was taken yesterday. Admittedly I drove up looking for crust but all I found was deep, soft and flat light to boot. Spring in Ak can be slow in coming, even down low all we have is muddy and brown. Spring will get here though and we still might get some crust up high.

    Hope you were observing that speed limit

    Unfortunately a lot of the nice green long grasses on the ground is a sign that you are in a bog. Nothing a pair of sandals, Seakskinz socks, and nimble hopping from tussock to tussock couldn't handle though.

    You'll be enjoying the longer days though - I'm enjoying them on the my parallel (57ºN) which is 4º south of you.

    It's amazing there's still that much snow -- although we didn't spend time at the mine, we were up at Hatcher Pass a couple years ago in the summer and took the back route through Willow (which had just opened in June sometime, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised there's still a pile-o-snow). What a great place to ride, even in the summer!

    I had to work in/around Minneapolis for a few weeks last summer, and was stoked to find their great network of bike trails and rail trails, including that exact stretch in the picture. Minneapolis is pretty cool, and I don't like cities.

    I think it was just a garter snake. Enjoying some heat from the trail.He looked up as I stepped over him but didn't seem too concerned.

    Hey I recognize that, typical ribbon snake you find up here in the midwest. I've had a few of those tangle in my front wheel, worst time was going across a small wooden bridge. Almost fell in the swamp trying to avoid running him over. Early spring right around this time these guys are pretty active.

    When I saw that pic, I checked Shark's profile - Indiana, right next door to me. Funny I could figure that out by the snake he posted. We have Massasauga rattler's here in Michigan as well as Eastern Waternakes which are protected species which could land you in jail if you intentionally kill one. So I often check the net to see what some our snakes look like. I often use the Fatbike down by the Ohio/ Mich border where watersnakes are common. Sometimes it's hard to tell them from the one in Shark's pics
    when they move fast. Some ribbon snakes have faint "ribbons" which make them hard to identify.

    Cool pic Shark, reminds me, I have a vid I haven't posted from last year's "snake encounter" on my Fatbike.

    The Pugzarillaz from 18 hours of Fruita last weekend. Not only did these guys party harder than anyone else but they also won their class. They put on a great show.

    Although we don't have snow at the moment, we still have plenty bogs.

    I'm on a quest to find and follow all the old abandoned trails I can find.

    This one started in a bog

    Where's the track?

    I followed a small stream - on the map the old track was marked beside it

    Bridge from nowhere to nowhere - no sign of a track either side.

    Eventually I found a faint trace which lead into the forest.

    Should have brought a machete. There were a few miles of this - the track could just be seen, but there was plenty of trees blown down in the gales of the last few years.

    Eventually it improved and I got about 500 metres of clear track


    And then I came to a 7' deer fence


    But where there's a will there's a way.

    I put one on to protect the Alfine shifter in a crash (it sticks up). Then I got the brainwave of putting one on the other side so now I can turn the bike upside down for trailside repairs and have it nice and stable and not scratch the bars etc.

    The only time they're a hassle is when I'm fence wrestling...

    It was fun riding the Pugsley again, the first time after the winter. (I'm one saddle short currently and borrowed the seatpost and saddle from my Fargo, hence the Thudbuster).

    Just this is my caprice. I have dreamt this type of riding at coast of Spain (Cadiz)

    I would like to ask something. Could I use normal wheels with normal size tyres (for normal days)? I think thit concept of bike have a lot of features that I love. For instance, I can use SS, I can ride it on the sand (using fat wheels) and if I could use normal size rims would be perfect!. Multi-uses configuration. (gears or SS, Fat or normal, Full rigid or suspension fork...)

    Thanking you in advance!

    Finally back to my local trails, & they even recently opened up a new section I hadn't seen
    Must find out who built this bridge, I have a porch I'm working on that could use a railing like that!

    I like that railing too... loved the way they scribed it around a live tree. Bike looks good too, by the way.

    Where is this? vegetation looks similar to ours, but we're nowhere near that dry or snow-free yet.

    Do mistakes come from bad judgment? Do you learn from your mistakes? I have learned from my mistakes and now make better choices. It is a phrase I stole from a book. If it bothers you that much put me on the ignore list. I am sorry I didn't mean to offend anyone.

    @bdundee... LP is a bit impulsive but he loves the peace and camaraderie on this forum, so I don't think (and hope) he was actually offended and sure was a quick statement to express his personal opinion and not an "order" as in he wasn't going to be able to live with that...you can do what you please on your signature (following mtbr rules ).

    ^^ hehe I had to rode back like that for about 5 km until I reached a river...that was on the other side of the dam...I got in nice but hit this extra soft area where I sunk...had to ask for a little help with the bike to get out of there...sit, get my legs out and then roll out

    I was testing my bikepacking setup and proving I was going to be able to cross the dam...I'll try to do an overnighter on the other side next weekend

    I spent the last few days on the beautiful Island of Raasay.



    Perfect weather. I had to delay my trip by one day because the waves were breaking over the top of the cliffs, and it was quite "interesting" while I was there.

    My first stop was the abandoned iron mine. Fatbikes are useful for exploring.




    Viaduct foundations, remains of kilns, hopper, &amp; pier.

    This was constructed in WW1 to help overcome the shortage of raw materials. Ironically half the labour force was German PoWs (about 250 of them) because almost every able bodied man from the island was away at the front.


    Remains of rail viaduct. The mine was mothballed, but remained fully operational until WW2 when it was completely dismantled for scrap iron. There's barely any metal left anywhere on the site. The mine itself is another mile over the hill but I couldn't get any further because of forestry operations.


    Bit boggy in the old rail cutting.


    Too boggy actually!

    Pics from yesterday's ride

    Went to the Castalia Rock Quarry in Ohio, sunny, 74degrees, unlike my home in Michigan, rainy&colder. Once I got past Toledo the weather was fantastic.




    I'll have some videos in a week or two, pretty neat place to ride.

    Thanks everyone! Here are larger rez versions of those pix.

    The saddle is the Gyes 560-026 from ebay. It's ~$70 and cheaper than Brooks. It's my first leather saddle and I wasn't sure what I would be getting into. It's not exactly light and it's not a recliner. I also slide around a bit on it but it's OK.

    Damn, that's real nice. I'm loving the Enabler and extra bottle mounts. Are those are the polished hundies from choppersus?

    My first fatbike singletrack session. So much fun! I have a feeling me being able to ride these trails today were in part to G-reg's handy work with that chainsaw posted above. Thanks Greg!

    Your welcome. I had to buy a saw in order to clear 60yrs of tree that ended up in my driveway. A little trail work allowed me to be happier about the unplanned purchase.

    Rode a bunch of singletrack tonight with a buddy. The Fatback just ate up all them roots! Hit Brown Bear, Black Bear, Moose Meadow, Rovers Run, and the Tour Trail. An angry bull moose found us, and a porcupine couldn't run away fast enough!

    Fatback @ the bottom of Brown Bear, it was so much, I had to ride up and do it again!


    Fatback @ the top of Black Bear.

    Just completed my 9:Zero:7 today (Thanks Al )

    So out for a trial run.

    Obligatory shot while it was still clean.



    I rediscover this every year. Wet nettles, thistles and shorts don't mix...


    Shortly after the last shot the skies opened and the lightning was being followed almost immediately by the thunder, so I chickened out of the rest of the ride.

    Hasn't been weighed yet.

    But I cannibalised the Pug so this this thing will be = Pug Weight - frame weight difference.

    What set up have you got and is it pretty solid?

    That's a Yakima High Roller. Front wheel fits in perfert (holds 29'r wheels). Tray is wide enough for the Larry's. The racthet strap isn't long enough so I just use a tie down for the back wheel. No issues on the highway up to 65 mph.

    Thanks

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for posting all the pics. I saw a couple Pugs in a bike shop and I haven't been able to think about anything else since. There is a great vibe in this forum too

    Alfine'd the pug and rode my first non-winter miles on it this last week.



    LOVE this setup and now just need to figure out an enclosure for the chain so it doesn't get ruined real quick like it did last year. It's good to be fat again.

    If you are a ballsy enough rider, they will do fine. I did a rather large off road ride with lots of steep climbs on my Surly 1x1 (the 2009 Anniversary Edition) with a 32x20 singlespeed setup, running Large Marge rims front and rear (26"x2.5" up front, 24"x2.5" back) shod with a 26"x2.5" Maxxis Hookworm up front and a 24"x3.45" 3GBikes Hoggy-G out back. On the corners one has to use discretion, and usually do it with the inside foot dragging the ground when at speed. I don’t regularly run such a setup however, I had just done a few rides on it to check it out.

    Depends on the trail. A lot of the trails I ride are relatively flat and have soils that are so compact they ride like tarmac. As long as there isn't a lot of loose over hardpack conditions the Hookworms work just fine... plus they make riding the pavement to the trail that much easier.

    If I was riding a trail with more hills and/or loose conditions, I'd probably ride a different bike. That said, I just installed a Vredestein Black Panther in back to see how it rides. I figure it should compliment the Endo up front nicely.

    Completely redid my drivetrain today finally. My old chain can't even be measured on my Park Chain Checker.. goes past 100% Haha.

    e.Thirteen 33t Guide Ring
    Wipperman ConneX 908
    SRAM PG-990 11-34t Redwin

    My old cassette and chain are supposed to be silver! Winter and Spring mud have made it completely black.

    Arctic Creek - Cripple R. Solstice Ride

    This is the second year I've done this 44-mile loop around the time of the summer solstice. This year it was June 18-19th - Sunset 1:46 am, sunrise 4:19am. I left around 11 pm to ensure I was at the high point approx. at sunset. Got back home just after sunrise, six hours later. I picked June 18th because there was a minus tide for good beach cruising on the way back at about 2:30 am, plus the forecaste of a tailwind for the last 13 sandy miles. It's nice when a ride goes according to plan. This is my favorite longer Nome-area loop: approx 20 miles of maintained gravel road, 11 miles of rough double track and stream crossings, and 13 miles of beach. No bears this year, but I did see a baby seal on the beach. I was too slow to get photo, so had to settle for his tracks. The unrecognizable black dot on the water is the seal. The buildings belong to the GPAA Cripple River mining camps, a tourist operation. The old dredge was abandoned in the late 80s. I used to work on it occasionally as a summer job to pay for college. Cheers

    Say, could someone tell me how to place text under each photo as a caption?

    First, nice shots!

    As to the captions, instead of uploading/attaching the pics to the post, you need to host them elsewhere (Photobucket/Picasa/Flickr/etc.), then post the links in IMG tags. You can then sprinkle captions among the IMG tags. Try looking at a quote of a post with captioned pics (like one of coastkid's posts) as a guide. HTH.

    What kind of grips/barplugs are those ?
    I am looking for a pair like them to match my DK pedals and DaBomb headset, but can't find them.
    A local chopper/cruiserbikeshop had them (or similair ones) , but don't sell them any longer...

    Tnx in advance !

    Thanks MiniTrail. Helps a lot.

    We'll have the part ways on "missing snow." seven months of it is enough for me. I'll be ready for it when it comes, say around October.

    The reason I have those bars on the lefty is because it's my commuter/all mountain bike. I ride my bike to work everyday and I prefer a much higher bar than most people. Usualy I would use a riser but the longer sterring tube for the leftys are $80+ and don't give the amount of rise I want, also no one carries them locally. So I spent $35 instead for these bars that have a huge rise in them and it set my grips right where I like them. I know they're funny looking but I'm much more comfortable and I don't have any problems with handling with the level of riding I do. Mostly easy single track riding with a few paved trails on my commute and when out on the downhill single tracks I haven't noticed any problems even on the advanced trails. I guess I'm used to it.

    It was a great ride. The light was incredible. I thought the shots came out pretty good considering the cheap point-n-shoot camera and the clueless photographer. Glad you liked them. And thanks for the pointers.

    Two Fat Family

    I took these about a month ago before all the rains brought out the foliage.

    The Pardner's Fat -- demo saddle...still dialing in.
    <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/5868013842/" title="WD's Fatback by u.jeanne, on Flickr"><img src="https://farm6.static.flickr.com/5228/5868013842_c41e52c008_b.jpg" width="729" height="617" alt="WD's Fatback"></a>

    My Fat -- this spot is tough to get to now due to tree and brush growth.

    Just so you don't think it's all graffiti in the city -- actually, in the upper part of the below shot, there's a fence with a paved trail high on the other side. The fence sits atop a concrete retaining wall -- grafitti is just to the left of this shot. I did a hike-a-bike to get up there back in early May. Now the hill is clogged with brush, mosquitoes, ticks....

    Sold 'em all out of necessity to fund this one. A philosophical sorta shift, too: trying to simplify my life in every way. Even bicycles.

    Off Season Riding in "Bush" Alaska...

    I bought my Mukluk in May so that I might join a friend of mine on the Susitna 100 next year. I did not realize I would ride it so much even before the snow flies. Here are some pics from near Aleknagik, Alaska where firm tundra and old roads from a long-gone cinnabar mine make off-season riding possible...

    This is, without doubt, and in my most-correct opinion, the premier thread in all of MTBR. All of this Siberian/Alaskan/Wildernessy riding is making me tres jealous. Many props to all of you for having too much fun!

    Looks like a swamp Joe

    Rode a lenght of coast yest with Jason that is only accessable at High tide,
    It istoo dangerous to do alone in the past as cut off by cliffs at low tide,
    It is about 60% ridable, with some bike carrying in places, hard going in the 20C+ mini heatwave of this weekend more pics on the beach/sand riding thread

    Did the 54 mile Liverpool - Chester - Liverpool (down the Mersey tunnel twice) bike ride today on the Mukluk with a low down camera taking one shot every 10 seconds

    Only got overtaken by 20 roadies but past thousands of other riders on route

    Cuyuna Park in north central MN. The whole area is reclaimed mine land, hence the rusty looking tires.

    Anvil Mt., El. 1062' - Nome AK

    July 3rd, noon, 44 degrees, 15 mph nw wind. Hardly feels like summer. It's a short but steep climb, 900 feet or so, most of which occurs in under a mile- 17+ % grade. The headland in the background is Cape Nome on the Bering Sea.

    I live in Irkutsk not far from the Lake Baikal. Thanks to the Baikal, in Irkutsk the weather changes from a heat to a snowing even in summer.

    For example, this photo was made in the beginning of May (2011/05/01)
    <img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/pic/000tprq7" />

    ... and some weeks later
    <img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/pic/000th1ry" />

    <img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/pic/000tkezz" />

    <img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/pic/000tfsea" />

    The panorama of Irkutsk. The water on the background is the Angara river.
    <img src="http://pics.livejournal.com/macsimka/pic/000tgp0s" />

    Irkutsk is a nice place for a snow fatbiking even in late spring or even in summer

    ... and if we just ... Carver

    Here are a couple of photos of my New Carver Fatbike. It is so much fun to ride and can go anywhere anytime. I wish they made a knobby rear tire for it.

    that's nice!! is it ti or steel? I see the ti snow bike listed on their site but if there's a steel option it'd be nice to hear!
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    Just use a Larry in the rear. It will give you plenty of traction.
