    Raises hand

    I plan on going. Although I am undecided about whether to take my fixed 29er or my Pugs. Tough choice. And no way in hay-yul I am doing the 50.

    I am going, signed up for the metric. Did the 45(50) last year and had a great time. I got passed on the last big climb by another Fatback, it was redline814. I did not see any others but there were at least two of us.

    I'm going to do the 35 mile ride, I just need to convert the SS pug a 1x9 pug. I'm having some issues finding a chain tensioner system where I can used a bash guard

    I'm signed up for the 35 so as to leave time to demo some bikes back at the festival and still have something left in the tank. Carrying a box of parts is out of the question so I will technically be non-fat.

    I'll be there riding my Vertigo. I registered for the 65, but I'm feeling less ambitious now than when I signed up 4 months ago...so I might end up doing the 50 with a group of friends.

    Anybody else doing it singlespeed? I haven't decided on that either.

    I've met and ridden with Mark, so it'll be cool to meet some other local fatties.

    Cheers,
    -rickyd

    ps - anybody else doing the Seagull Century next weekend? I'm throwing on some slicks and gears onto the fatty. We'll see how that goes

    Aw snap! I've been sick and out of work the last couple of days. I was close to loading the bike in the car this morning, but I thought it wiser to just rest tonight so I will be good to go for the weekend.

    Do you get to Wakefield on Tuesday nights as well?

    Is there any other way to ride? 2:1 should be a good ratio...

    Might have to up my training plan from 4 laps at rville to 5-6 this weekend in preparation

    I did, back in TX... job is still in CO though.

    While I love the Rockies and the outdoor lifestyle of Colorado, I miss trees and lush forests of the east. I guess because I started mountain biking back east, it will always be what I consider the style of riding I enjoy. Tight, twisty single track roots and creek crossings.

    Wife and I visited OR this summer, and while I didn't ride, can see huge potential in that place not only for off road, but what a great place for commuting both Portland and Eugene were very cycle friendly

    I'll be riding the metric century on my fat front fixie this year. 26x4" tire up front and 29x2.4 out back. It is only half fatbike, but it is the perfect bike for this ride. The course is lovely again this year. Lots more singletrack with the new trail additions in the last 10 miles.

    This ride keeps getting better.

    I'll likely be rolling into the starting area a little before 0700. The bike is pretty hard to miss. You'll hear me coming. I guess I took the whole "more cow bell!" thing to heart.

    See y'all out there.

    I am. I did a trial run of the southern 35 loop weekend before last. It went well even with my finger still in a splint. The bone is healing well and I get the rest of the stitches out today.

    I'm not in as good of shape as last year. The course is harder. I will have much fresher legs though. Should be good to go. I will NOT be moving fast and I'll be using the easier side of the flip-flop for the official loop.

    Intro yourselves if we see yinz tomorrow. I'll be wearing a stripey Single Speed Outlaw jersey and jean shorts, attempting to complete 50 miles at a meager pace without too much whining...

    You'll be fine, sir. The 50 mile loop is my favorite of the bunch. You get to finish out on Seneca Ridge which is such a lovely trail that you'll forget about wanting to shift gears. That trail just SCREAMS to be ridden on a single speed... or fixie!

    I think I've got everything ready to go. Doing such a long ride kind of makes the bike look like crap. I use a seat bag that can carry 3 tubes + tools. I've got batteries for the lights and a back-up battery for the GPS, since the Garmin only lasts about 12 hours. Zip ties seem to be the repair item I use most often, so I have a few of those duct-taped (cutely) to the H-bars. I even have a little cue sheet with the KM# of each of the aid stations on it.

    I'll post up a photo soon.

    Like Drevil said, please introduce yourself along the way. I'll be in a black Bikenetic kit with pink arm warmers. You'll hear me coming with 2 cow bells on the handlebars.

    How did it go? I arrived very late, started the 65 at 9:35, oops! I saw 4 Fatbacks and one White Pugsley. I pased Mark while he was chatting, rode with Leo (orange fatback) for about 4 miles on the Greenway, chatted with the Ano Fatback guy at aid station 5 and passed the Pugs (GISdork?) about five miles from the finish, other than that I kept a steady pace. Had a great time, it is a great course for the big tires.

    I think it was Orange Fatback Leo that parked across from me, but he was on the phone and I didn't want to interrupt him. I talked to CargoPete a lil. I think I saw Redline Mark at the Germantown Cycles/Hula Aid Station. I saw someone on a silver one pull up to the finish tent, but I was eating and figured I'd try to catch them later.

    I started the 50 at 7:20ish. The weather and the 50-miler were perfect for me. Here's my uninspiring stats: MoCo Epic 2012, 50-miler by rdeleyos at Garmin Connect - Details

    Sightings:
    -Mrs Drevil working registration tent at 8:45.
    -Silver Fatback w/ black fork in parking lot unloading his gear. I'd already started my trip computer, was in the mind set to "go" and didn't feel like delaying anymore.
    -Silver Fatback #2 (?, looked like different rider than #1) finishing around the 4pm hour, rounding the registration tent and heading for the parking lot. Son was in moon bounce and I wasn't going to run 100yds to catch the guy.
    -Pugsley on roof of Jeep Liberty. Stood there for a few minutes discussing it with my son. He said "the part of the frame from near the seat to rear wheel" (gave him correct term), "had to be about this wide (holding his fingers about 8" apart) for the tire to fit" I chuckled and told him the tire was 4" and his bike had 2.1s. The other bike on the rack had one of those phantom flats that seem to occur after the ride is over and bike is safely stowed.

    Did not see any fats or half fats even on the 35 trail. Left at 9:30 and finished about 2:15 w/ 50min of total aid station time including RD adjustment and hanger alignment at AS6.

    Nice to see a bunch of fat ones out there. I saw Drevil in Black Hill and Little Bennett before the guy I was riding with flatted. I didn't see any fatness or half fatness until I ran into a couple of guys .. one on a white pug and the other on ??? I don't remember what it was... on Muddy Branch. I saw a few at the finish before I rode home. In all, the fat front fixie was a blast to ride on those trails. I will admit that my arms and shoulders were tired when I got home. Long-assed day in the saddle.

    Rock on, y'all!


    Sean got a photo of my good side. Kinda obscures my fatness though.

    Way to go Pete. Nice shot also, I like the rear number placement. I think you have to be the most Epic epic-er, Kudos for sure. The only way to top your ride is to come back full fat next year.

    I had hoped to be there well before 7:00 to do a little meet and greet, but after a restless night with a health issue (that I hope is minor), I did not arrive till after 9:00 and rushed to get ready as fast as I could. I already dropped down a distance category in Jereimiah's Gran Fondo back in September so I was determined to do the Repair Max 65 miler as registered.

    I hit the trail at 9:35 sharp and never looked back. I did finish the 65 as planned. Like Drevil I road mostly alone, ocasionally hooking up with another bike for a mile or two, I road with Orange bike Leo for close over three miles near the end of Seneca Greenway, the longest person all day.

    Looks like 1% out of the total riders were on fat bikes. I believe we had a 100% finish rate. I had quite a few spares with me but luckily did not have any trouble.
    Perfect Day!

    Cheers,
    Steven

    bme107, I may have been the silver one you saw when you started, I carried a camera and the only picture I took was as I was leaving.

    I finished the 65 miler in 7.5 hours and saw a lot of fat bikes along the way. At one point (I think it was right after coming off the C&O) there were 4 fat bikes in row - a Pugs, a 907, a Carver, and me on my orange Pugs. I had a great time - thanks to everyone that helped make this event happen.

    I ran into 2 others who rode a long ways to get to the epic. One rode from Arlington, about 22 miles, the other was about 36 miles, like me, but from a different direction. I saw a lot of single speeders... and Drevil's amazing single speed fatty, but I didn't see anyone else riding fixie. My buddy Ben rode the 35 mile route on his unicycle. Truly awesome.

    The cool thing about the MoCo Epic is that it can be epic for all kinds of cyclists. There was a time not that many years ago where 25 miles was epic for me. This event makes it possible for people to challenge themselves and do stuff that they didn't think was possible!

    Quick observation about riding fixie for that kind of mileage... It is a very interesting prospect. One thing I love about the fat front fixie is that the bike just SCREAMS to just blast through, up and over things. On a 137 mile ride with a rolling time of over 12 1/2 hours, I am not able to ride it that way. My game plan from the get-go was to do enough to make it over the next hill. I didn't blast up anything. I rode to survive. There were some times where my legs were saying, "Come on!! You can crush this hill!" and I had to hold back a lot. I made it home, but there wasn't much left in the tank.

    The down-side to riding to and from the ride is that I really didn't get to spend any time at the after party. I finished up a little before 4pm and was on my way home not long after. The good news was that I hit 2 aid stations on the way home to top off on gummi bears.

    Rock on, folks. It will be interesting to see what next year will look like.

    Pete

    So I guess that I only saw one silver 2x, since your story corroborates the AM sighting and I definitely remember that nice navy wagon cutting across the field at the end of the day just after seeing you leave the tent area.

    I think you saw two. There was a raw anodized one that I passed at aid station 5. I finished at three thirty and spent close to an hour getting cleaned up, eating some food, chatting with a couple friends I hadn't seen in awhile and calling my wife and a few other friends before moving.

    I saw quite a few fat folks. Saw my 1st bare framed Fatback (other then mine). My hats off to the guy on the single speed fat bike...crazy. The usual pug was spotted here and there. No 907's. The ano orange Fatback looked soooo pretty.

    The group I was riding with set out to do the 67, but ended up doing the 50. We wanted to spend more time enjoying the bands, beer and food! I ruined my back tire with only about 5-6 miles to go. There was an old metal fence post in the trail and I hit it...2 nice size rips in me tire (blew it of course). There was another guy who hit the same thing about a minute before I did...already changing his tire.

    Did any of you ride across the water crossing that had the wire guideline? I watched a guy ride across and then hop up un the muddy bank at the other side. Amazing talent. I did not care to take a swim since it was not a race situation

    I rode across, but didn't get up and out the other side. I stepped back and hefted the bike up and out. That creek crossing is much easier when it hasn't been ridden a few hundred times before you get to it.

    Sounds like you had a great ride. Rock on!

    The huge concrete bridge over Seneca Creek early in the 65 (in the middle of Hoyles Mill) is my pet peeve. That bridge killed my favorite creek crossing. The good news is that it is avoidable.

    I've never ridden that. It's a pretty steep transition on each bank and I can't imagine having the traction to make it out, especially after numerous people have crossed making it slick. On foot I usually take the time to clear the mud out of my cleats even. Reviewing it in my mind I'd be scared to try riding for fear of sliding backward and impaling myself on one of the fence posts.
    Would have been interesting to see that rider.

    We take the club kids ride wading in the water there over the summer. Good 1/2 way rest stop for the HM out/back when it is 100deg out.

    It is great for that. We'll see how my resolve to not use the bridge holds up to a real winter ride. That video was shot when the air temps were in the mid 40s.

    The group I was riding with set out to do the 67, but ended up doing the 50. We wanted to spend more time enjoying the bands, beer and food! I ruined my back tire with only about 5-6 miles to go. There was an old metal fence post in the trail and I hit it...2 nice size rips in me tire (blew it of course). There was another guy who hit the same thing about a minute before I did...already changing his tire.

    Did any of you ride across the water crossing that had the wire guideline? I watched a guy ride across and then hop up un the muddy bank at the other side. Amazing talent. I did not care to take a swim since it was not a race situation
    I was on a singlespeed, but only did the 50. Pete was on a fixie and did 140 (his house in Falls Church -> Epic -> his house).

    I rode across, but not up. I was there when uberkid Dylan rode down, across and up like it was nothing. Following behind him were Chris Eatough and Jeff Schalk, neither looking as smooth as the kid.

    I was with Crashmore once and the water must've been over our wheels. He spills, and his bike starts floating down the stream

    So who were the fatties in your vid, Pete?

    I've had a few instances where the water was deep enough and the current strong enough that even 205lb me got enough lift that the front wheel moved downstream noticeably. I kept it upright tripod style, but it was close. I wasn't really ready for the increased air volume to have that big an effect.

    The two that I ride with periodically are a couple of friends I met in the EPA bike facility. They *DROVE* to Minneapolis the week that the Salsa Mukluks were released so they could buy them the first day they were available in a shop. I took them to the new Fountainhead a few weeks ago and they had a blast!

    D'OH! Saturdays are hosed for me. That's the one day of the week where my rides are minimal.

    Keep me in the loop though. I'd enjoy some riding this fall and winter.

    Thanks, the base is made by Thule with a modified Yakima Boa holding the bike. Works really well.
