    Daily fatbike pic thread

    Let's start showing where we take our bikes.


    Rogie

    I only managed 5 metres on those rocks. Maybe softer pressure and a fat rear tyre might help - or maybe I should acquire some "skillz"

    Today's ride - Fyrish Monument. If you look at the background you'll see oil rigs.

    Loose dry tracks which made for an interesting climb. The big wheel was nice and reassuring on the descent

    It's back! Snow that is...

    The bike was cleaner when I got back from my ride yesterday than when I left. That can only mean one thing - snowbiking season is here. Just two inches or so at the 700-800 ft level, but it was enough that I had to drop tire pressure to keep from spinning out on the steeps. When I heard the crunch of snow under fat rubber I realized how much I missed that sound. Three cheers for winter! vb

    This far, Will:

    Nome AK 64° 30' 4" N - 165° 24' 23" W. You'll recall from the last election that we can see Russia from here. I sure wish they would haul off their junk and mow the grass cause it's hurting my property value. Musk oxen are as common as cows up here. A fellow rider jokingly referred to them as "cockroaches" the other day after locals complained to the newspaper they can't walk their dogs without getting charged. I still love seeing them, though. vb

    Thanks for the kind words. I am also a fan.
    It was made by Curtis Inglis out of Napa California.
    He makes bikes under the name Retrotec and Inglis.
    This was his first Fat build. I had it built with the Fat winter/29er summer mentality.

    I have Last Train pics somewhere but all are from motorized excursions. Sounds like you've been up this way before? Here are a few other shots from around the area. vb

    Have not been, but would really like to—looks like very scenic country. I ask because Last Train to Nowhere is pretty famous in photography circles. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to make some snaps for us with a fatbike included for scale...

    As common as cows? But they're not domestic like cows right? Or are people tending them for their fur or something? Also, I thought they circled up when threatened, not charged. Guess I'm misinformed. I've got to get to Alaska one of these days. I feel crowded in Vermont, and it's pretty rural...

    kikinik - what handlebars are those? I like the wrist angles of my Space Bar and my H-Bar, but they both have equipment mounting disadvantages. Your bars look much more friendly toward my only complaint.

    (That bike is stylish as hell, and the bars even complement the excess joint appearance)

    Or perhaps I should have said vastly more common than cows since the nearest cows are probably 400 miles away. Certainly they're not as common as cows in Vermont. These guys are wild, but hunting them is restricted around Nome and the population has grown dramatically in the last 10 years. There are three herds within 20 miles of town totaling maybe100-150 animals. A coworker had some in his yard the other day. You're right, they typically circle when threatened, but people with dogs have been getting charged lately for some reason. The local animals usually ignore me on my bike, or trot off 50 yards and stare. No crowds here, man, and no fences for 500 miles. But then there's not much else either. Can make a person feel small and insignificant, which is a good way for humans to feel now and then. Cheers and thanks for taking an interest. vb

    Open space has that effect on me. Above treeline, bald mountains, even just pastures. Can't imagine what it's like with 500+ miles of tundra. I like looking off into the distance, and seeing no sign of humans. I often try to picture a landscape as it would have looked before we screwed it up. Vermont isn't too bad, but there's not many places (besides deep in the woods) where you can't see signs of people. Our biggest mountain (Mt. Mansfield) has a ski resort (Stowe) on it's flank, and an old road almost to the summit. The Long Trail traverses it too, but trails are another matter.

    Homer to Anchor point

    There was a storm coming so we made a quick dash to get in a ride before it hit.
    The light was amazing and we had a tail wind the whole way.
    Almost ran over a sleeping sea otter that looked like a rock until it woke up and hissed at us.
    We backed up and let it slink off to the sea.
    The snow line is dropping everyday. Cant wait to hit the trails.

    Probably the last we'll see of autumn.





    Taken on the 'Puffer course.

    BTW registration opens for the 'Puffer 24 hour on Friday at 10.00am. Be poised on your computer, the solo entries are likely to go within 5 to 10 minutes. (I want to see a few fatbikes there this year)

    If you're not already registered with Sportident it's a good idea to do it in advance, because while you're filling in the registration the places are all getting filled.

    I'm liking it very much. It will probably end up my favorite bike beside the Salsa Fargo. Originally i had three goals with the Pugsley and I have the feeling that they all have been achieved:

    1. Snowbike capable of a week long self supported trip in a place like this. This is something I've never doubted, though I have yet to try it in snow. I really look forward to this.

    2. "Stupid bike". This doesn't quite have the same ring in English, but it would be e.g doing a 24H event with it or some longer road events. The Pugsley isn't really stupid at all in terrain, but it has already been talk about taking a group of Pugsleys to a longer road event, which in turn would be stupid.

    3. Week long self supported trip in uneven terrain in the summer. I was uncertain about this, but now I actually think it might be a good idea. In sustainable touring speed, the big tires provide about the same comfort as a 100 mm FS bike. It weighs a lot more, but on the other hand it enables riding without a large backpack, which I'm sure would be worth it for me.

    Nome roamings

    With several inches of snow on the ground, I spent last weekend roaming around the Nome area on the fatback checking on trail conditions. Not too many slednecks or dog mushers out yet, but trails are slowly emerging. Did some walking and pushing, too. All in all a great weekend on the bike. vb

    Great pics velo, love that northern sky. Here's some from Great Island on Cape Cod, great mix of beach, elevated bluffs and sandy forest trails.

    Heh, I didn't see the entire height of the first pic right away, my reaction was "Why is it that teenagers can always wheelie better than I?"

    Then I remembered, I've always sucked at wheelies. I can prop up the front end, but I can't keep it there.

    I'm in the same boat. I can (or at least used to be able to) hop on the back wheel all day long, but suck monkey balls at riding a wheelie.

    First snow in Minnesota today. Wet, wet, very wet. So wet that it took down a lot of branches and knocked out power here and there. I was lucky that my home did not lose power, nor was my roof damaged, after a large branch fell.

    I was kinda lamenting not having studded my Larry tires yet, but, with the layer of slush at the bottom, they wouldn't have reached through anyway.

    Learned a valuable lesson: if you can't walk on it well, you can't ride it well. Very slow and wobbly ride. Time to wait for some powder.

    Also learned that Power Grips aren't going to do it for me.

    Drew, In my somewhat limited experience if there is any snow at all the studs won't reach through. You only need them on glare ice or totally iced over snow. But when you need them you really need them. In AK it is seldom we need them so most go without, but there are times ..... I just wish Nokian would make some bike tires out of the rubber they make their studless car tires out of!

    Good to know. I'm in the process of adding Ugigrip studs to my Larrys, they're pretty similar in outward appearance to what Nokian uses.

    Today's efforts were no-track stuff. Trying to ride cross country where there are no tracks or just deer tracks. Did more than my share of pushing. The trash left after forestry operations makes life difficult.



    Came down the hill in the background. The lower section is fairly deep bog, hike a bike stuff.

    Took the Fatback to Greenville Maine, on Moosehead lake. Nothing but logging roads and ATV trails up here, no singletrack.

    It's cooling down here now. Not long before the snow (-5ºC here today)



    Tried a bit more no-track riding. A bit easier when the boggy bits are frozen, but the bits of branch etc still makes it difficult, and it's mainly hike-a-bike still.

    pinky the fatback

    Sunday everything was nice and frozen for her second ride on "pinky". the baseball boogie trails were rad! at least i think that's what they're called. they start above speedway and shoot down toward elmore where there are a bunch of boardwalks.

    I think the tought is that they work better with winter gloves. Although akgreeff has grips on his mtb and trigger on his snow bike.

    i'm sure there are other reasons.

    They do work better with winter gloves/mittens. Not everyone likes poggies.

    And it's a personal pref for me, I have GS on all my bikes.

    I wrecked my thumb joints pushing thumbshifters years ago so Gripshift is it. Besides they are lighter and work great and are better with mittens........

    Never encountered a thumbshifter in working order that could possibly ruin your thumb joints.

    I assume you're talking about "friction" shifters, and not trigger shifters.

    The old XT Thumbshifters, one lever for both up and down shifts were indexed, although they could be switched to friction mode. They were quite hard to push compared to todays trigger shifters and several years of racing , and probably bad genetics, led to arthritis or something similar so I just can't push very well with my thumbs. Fortunately twist shifting is not a problem.

    I'll consider myself lucky to be 21, and not had to suffer with poor thumb shifters.

    I've always had triggers, and was never a fan of grip shift, it's just not as easy to use for me.

    I haz the hang of this now

    I've had good luck with the Paul's Thumbie mount and barends. Easier action than the old thumb shifters...

    Bikes in the context of where we ride them. Got it.

    Here's a little detour I took on my way to work this morning:

    The winter is making another attempt to come. This time there is at least some hope. The ten day forecast promises day temperatures of around -12°C (10°F) and slightly colder nights.

    If I was still living in WI, a fat bike would be great. Grew up in Neenah, riding at High Cliff, Kettles, Hartman Creek, you should be able to find lots of snowmobile trails for the winter.

    Does this qualify as a fat bike???



    Started fattenizing it on Friday, finished it up Saturday. 26"x3" is pretty much the largest that will fit on a Surly Big Dummy after many hours of measuring/cutting/hammering and busting thumbs in the garage.

    My Pugs

    Here is how I've got mine set up, and will stay this way. I love the Ergons and the gas tank bag. I had to get the large saddle bag just to fit my inner tube. Love this bike.

    I love this thread! The diversity of terrain represented is just awesome. Snow, beaches, moors, Alaska, mountains, the arctic, northern europe, mexican jungle, even the bloody outback. Here's my shots from this mornings ride, sorry about the drab lighting, just how it was.

    No paint Martin, That's not my Fatback. That's my 1st fat bike. Had it custom made a few years back before anyone was building FB's w/ ALU. When I started the project, Speedway wasn't on the web yet and the Wildfire and Vicious Cycles were the only choices besides the Pugsly.It's symmetrical and It's geometry is styled after the Gary Fisher HT 29er's of the time, and built specificly for the Maverick fork as well. This is deffinatly one of the 1st ALU fat bikes That I am aware of. If you look close at the front end, you can tell it's no Fatback. Much more like an XC 29er... lower cock-pit, higher BB, ton's of clearance under the DT. I like my Fatback better on the soft sand (haven't rode it on the snow yet so can't compare yet) , 'corse it has 100's mounted up so it's a different animal anyway, but for XC and mountain riding, where there's long climbs and descents, fast singletrack, this thing rips! As much as I love every bit of what's going on out there right now with FB's, I still think there's room for some "not so tall in the front end"... little more XC designed models.

    I'll post some pic's of them side by side one of these days...

    That's interesting.

    Fits in with my observations. My half fat bike has a steep head angle and low front, and it feels much more nimble to me than the Pugsley.

    I was withholding a final judgement until I had tried them both in the snow.

    The builder used a 150mm hub on this one. DT had just stopped production of they're 165mm hub and others were hard to come by... so the chain-line is a little tweaked and the chain stays won't fit anything wider then the Large Marge's. Makes it awesome for a 29er "swap-out" set though and I can use a cheap 150 hub.

    All my mountain riding was on this bike this year. Should be some movies of a trip to Cirque Lake on the FB films thread... it was this summer, should just be back a page or so. Also, back just a little further, are films of a day trip on the Tieton River trail this past spring that also feature this bike (along side a couple reg. mt. bikes)

    I'll say it again, I think theres room for some more "xc oriented" fat bike designs... maybe we should start a thread about it one of these days...

    There's a story to this loch (lake). I was told it didn't exist a few years ago.

    There was a loch higher up the mountain which belonged to one of the landed gentry who used to make money out of letting the fishing rights.

    There was a week of storms and heavy rain and the original loch overflowed. The torrent of water cut through its banks with the result that the next morning there was a new loch here, where there had been none before.

    The original loch is now just a swamp.

    Looking at the amount of water involved, I wouldn't have wanted to have been doing a night ride in the path of that lot.

    I was just eyeballing the 100mm fork and hadn't noticed the rim. If I got a 100mm fork I would be aiming for a dynohub wheel next.

    No, it's a Dice rim 42mm I got in Australia several years ago. I was intending doing an offroad overland trip and wanted the fattest tyre section I could get.

    No fatbikes back then unfortunately, because that's basically what I was trying to build.

    New paint job

    Got a new paint job, or actually a coating. The process is done on the inside and out, so no worries of rust.

    Brown is not my color of choice but it still looks really good. Nice job, especially the close up.

    Does this count? First real snow of the year has arrived, but my bike hasn't.

    No, I actually found it in a bike shop in the Idaho farm country. Made by some welders somewhere in their spare time and marketed under the name Dirt King. Recently handed down from big sister, and just now big enough to ride it! I just realized that this might be one of the reasons that fat bikes now look "normal" to me, while every other bike looks anemic.

    Oh wait, the website shows adults with mullets riding those things—do I need to grow a mullet to buy one?

    Got some nice snow last night:

    Mostly the only bike tracks I saw were my own from 2 days ago.

    I remember years ago when I could go out after several days and still find my old tracks. That does not happen in Anchorage anymore. It only takes a couple of hours on most trails no matter what time of day before tracks are covered. I miss when winter bikes were such a novelty but it sure is cool to be able to ride packed singletrack soon after a snowfall.

    Cool bike, Jordy. Black on white, very nice!!!

    We need a snow dump like that up north to cover all the ice from our last freezing rain episode. The riding is still pretty sketchy. What's the red cannister thingie?

    Plenty snow today. Started out ok, and then the snow began to pile on



    Diverted to the local bike shop in the hope of bludging a cup of tea. They'd closed up and gone sledging



    The bike got heavier and heavier...



    or maybe I was getting knackered

    A simple ride took hours longer than normal, and by the time I had the high point in sight it was getting dark.



    Needless to say I hadn't brought my lights.

    A few hours later after struggling through a track where the foliage had all collapsed onto the path under a deep layer of snow - I wasn't doing much cycling there - I saw the light



    It was all downhill from there

    The annual beer ride overnighter featured two Pugsleys and three ordinary bikes this time. Only the Pugsleys could ride the snow covered boardwalks. My log contains a small write-up about the outing.

    In some places I realised that if anything went wrong no-one would find me until spring. And all within a few miles from home.

    I'm pretty cautious, but I'm going to carry more gear from now on - a lesson learned.

    BTW what pressures are you running now?

    Waiting for sunrise...

    at 11 am. Days sure are short this time of the year. Finally got an inch of snow to cover the ice. Rideable, barely, without studs.

    Hey velobike, the previous post was not intended as a reply. I was enviously enjoying the pics of your pug in fresh snow and posted mine in the wrong place.

    The rumors that you've heard about a fatbike race in Wisconsin are true. Unfortunately you have to wait a few more days for the details....but the date is going to be January 15th.

    Picture a track covered with deep snow, the trees bending over from the load of snow on the branches, a freezing mist making the detail on the lower slopes white out, the sun shining on a fatbike positioned to best advantage, but not obscuring the mountain range or the clear blue sky. A perfect shot.

    Now picture the idiot who forgot to put the battery back in his camera....

    On that note, no pictures yet, but picture clear -12F temps, squeaky hardpack snow, and over 2 hours of singletrack known as winter night riding in Anchorage. COLD!
