Fat Bikes at the Bottoms

IMG_6155

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you know I’ve been quite leary of the hoopla surrounding the whole fatbike thing, and feel that their capabilities have been way overblown. Well in an effort to fall in love with it, on Friday I overhauled my Pugsley w/ a new wheelset, rubber, and the changing out of some key contact points.

This is how it was:

And this is how it is now:

I swapped out the Marge XC’s for a set of Rolling Daryls laced to a Surly freewheel in the front, and a DT Swiss 350 hub for the rear. I was also fortunate to get my grubby hands on the soon to be released new Knard 3.8 tires. And guess what?

When you remove 600 or so grams of weight from your wheelset it makes a big difference in the effort needed to get it rolling. Who knew?

Also, the change in footprint from the Marges to the 20mm wider Daryls was very apparent.  They’re way wider and the feel of the tires w/ the now shorter sidewalls is dramatically different and way better.

Other smaller changes that are making a big difference in my comfort on the bike are a new saddle, seatpost, pedals, and I flipped the stem upside down which has given me a much more aggro “mountain” position.

On Saturday it was time to put some miles on this bad boy, so Treasure, Josh, Baroo, Pembo, and I headed down to the bottoms for some adventuring.

we found a real neat little hidey hole in this tree

in this photo of Treasure’s Moonlander, you can see that he’s made it all the way in

A bit later down the trail we ran into another hollow tree, and in this one we found a Geo Cache

so we signed it (first ones) “10/6/12 Jeff, Trevor, Joshy, 1st place ya’ll jealous bitches

It was a great day on the bikes with the dogs, and my Pugsley has never ridden better.  Everytime I go down to the bottoms I question why I’m not down there more often, it’s paradise.

Track or Treat Sponsors

I’m way deep into the planning of the sixth annual Track or Treat coming up on October 26th.

I’ll have the finished posters out this week, but in the meantime ya’ll should know that I’ve decided to make it open to all types of bikes, with time bonuses for fixed gear and costumes.

Also, the party is going to be off the proverbial chain, with smoke machines, strobes, and horror movies.  Start getting your costumes ready.

Here is the sponsor list as it sits right now.
