Danger Gnome Podcast – 2019 Birkie Champion Corey Stelljes

On this episode of the DGP we start the show with the launch of our new segment called “Ask Adam” where real-life bike shop professional – mi hermano de otra mamacita, Adam Blake from World of Bikes out in Iowa City, Iowa answers questions from folks like you! Then we welcome Corey Stelljes to the show. Corey is the Men’s 2019 Fat Bike Birkie Champion!

Ask Adam

Adam & Gomez

We received this question from Sebastien Gagnon about how to set up his Rocky Mountain SuziQ for Summer adventure.

I ride a Rocky Mountain Suzy Q50.  This bike has 27.5 x 3.8 tires on Mulefut 65.  I love this bike and very happy with my winter setup.  I have put some 45North Dillinger for the icy condition that we have in Southern Ontario, Canada.
I want to start bike packing this summer.  Do you have any suggestion about tires for better rolling resistance?  I could keep the original Maxxis Minion and blow them hard.  Do you think I could fit a 27.5 x 3 tires?  Ultimately I could get new rims setup with 29” tires. What do you suggest to get this baby rolling in the hot summer day?  I am planing a few warm-up trips of 100 miles.  50 miles to my location and back the next day.  I want to get my set up dial for a ride of 300km this August.
