The green tracer in the photo above, almost makes it look like her fat-bike is hopping down the road, all under a billion stars (give or take a hundred million).

I bet just about everybody will have something to say about Bluto. Today we get to talk […]

He says “This picture was taken at Island Lake State recreation area in Brighton, Michigan along the Huron River. Thanks to all the snowmobiles for keeping the trails […]
What’s the difference between a mountain bike and a fat bike? It’s really the same as the difference between a violin and a fiddle… It’s just the way you play it. While most people reply “Snow and Sand” when answering the question of “What do you ride with tires like that?” – I like to […]
To some of us this may be the most exciting tire offering in a while. Finally, there is more than one choice for the 29+ crowd with the introduction of the Vee Tire Co. Traxx Fatty 29×3.0 tire! The Traxx Fatty is built around a 120tpi carcass and is Tubeless ready. You can see from […]
By : Jesse LaLonde I don’t recall a time in my life when the weather was ever an issue. In fact I tend to welcome the extreme with hungry lungs and an open mind. I’ll be the first to admit that this mentality can lead to a sink or swim situation but that’s the type […]
Continued from Part 1 by : John Lackey Race Day Part 2: At the next vantage point about 10 km on, the race had actually started to come back together, the top 9 were still all close, but at this point Kara was only about 4 minutes back from the leaders. This road section was […]

by : John Lackey About three weeks before my fiancé, Kara, and I were going to set out to Finland to tackle the Rovaniemi 150 race I was having bad back pain, but we started on what was supposed to be an 8 hour training ride on Saturday anyway. After about 5 minutes, I couldn’t […]

The new Vee Tire H-Billie is a kind of a ‘tweener tire. It is marked as a 4.25 on the side wall and definitely comes in between other fat-bike tires being larger than the likes of the Dillinger and Husker Du but is certainly smaller than the big 5.0 tires out there. The tire is […]
From the moment that I laid eyes on Ventana’s new El Gordo fat bike, I knew that we had to find a way to test one of them. I first discovered Ventana way back in the 90′s when a friend of mine lived out in Sacramento, CA. I stumbled into a local bike shop and […]
