Platform Pedal Shootout

Platform Pedals are ubiquitous to the fat-bike scene. When I started riding fat-bikes, I ditched the spd pedals that I’d ridden for years and enjoyed the foot loose and fancy free platform pedal cycling lifestyle from there forward. I still run spuds on some of my bikes, but I run platforms on just as many, […]

It’s a beautiful 9km path with 800mt+ climbing as many other local hills are no higher than 1200mt and you can enjoy rides of […]

Stashers Bag Review by Andy Amstutz

Bags…Bags…get ya bags here.  I have fallen in love with bags on my bikes.  What used to be a simple “under the saddle” bag with a tube, tire lever, multi-tool and maybe some CO2, has evolved into carrying keys, phones, pumps, snacks and oh, maybe, just possibly, a few adult beverages for the mid-ride social […]

Due to the current health situation, I’m stuck inside thinking all things fat-bike. I’m planning future rides, reminiscing rides gone by and thinking about what some people think about fat-bikes.  So Why Fat-bike?  This is a question that’s come up many times over the years by some who may have never ridden a fat-bike. With this […]

Spring Glove Shootout

I’m a fan of full-fingered gloves all year round and when it comes to the gloves that I wear during early spring, I’ve traditionally gone to a softshell glove rated for around 40 degrees F. This would be the same glove that I wear inside of pogies for all but the coldest rides throughout the […]
