Sûrly unearths Fester

In the movies, Fester was lost during a Typhoon in the Bermuda Triangle, but we dug this fester out of a big corrugated cardboard box. E-Bikes, Aluminum Handlebars and now Titanium? It’s beginning to look like an all too familiar slippery slope of full-grown bicycle geekery. So like…steel is real, but titanium is real light? […]

RSD Mayor Review – By Andy Amstutz

    For the past two months, I’ve been riding the newest version of the RSD Mayor Aluminum fat bike, appropriately named V4 (version 4).  If my local riding crew is any indicator of how much I enjoyed riding and testing this fat bike, I’d bet they’d all agree that I was thoroughly stoked during the time […]

Quiring Rhymes with Bike Bling

Editor’s Note:  There are so many builders of exquisite bicycles located all over the US that can’t take the time or expense to hit NAHBS every year. Other shows like the one in Philly draw regional builders. The great lakes or the mid-west area doesn’t have a regional handbuilt show and it’s been a while […]

Surly Terminal Bar – By Spinner

Let’s be honest here, Surly is trying a few new things that you might not have expected.  Sure, they’re usually one of the first to get weird when compared to other companies in the bike industry when they introduced fat bikes, fatter bikes, 29+ bikes and fat cargo bikes but it appears they’re willing to […]

Otis gets a 2×9 to 1×11 Conversion

  I got this crazy idea to upgrade the drivetrain on my legacy fat-bike Otis from a 2×9 Shimano/Microshift set-up to a Box 1×11 with a 30 Tooth Wolftooth Oval chairing and Camo/Direct Mount spider. Let me begin by saying that it’s not our intention to disparage our long-time amigo ‘the front derailleur’ or the folks […]

Antti Hakonen and a friend went out to try a new drone and shot some video last summer. They shot their clip in Central Finland at Lake Kankarisvesi. Antti shared that the water level was so low that it exposed the beach for the riding. I think this really captures the tranquility of a nice beach ride. […]

Crust a ride (and you’ll be sitting on the top of the world)

(editor’s note:) I’m a card-carrying crustifarian so it should come as no surprise that today’s fat-bike fairytale is entitled Crust Cruising. We suggest that you take your favorite surf-punk classic and trade the word Surf with the word Crust in the lyrics for an ideal soundtrack for today’s reformed crustifarian proclivities.
