Wallpaper Wednesday – Beach Hunt

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday comes from a time when we could ride the shores of Lake Michigan on a hot summer day and spend the entire day riding our fat-bikes and stopping to session driftwood ramps. At the end of the ride, there’s usually a good chance for a cold beer and maybe… if you’re […]

Fat (video) Tuesday – Cwm Dulyn

Cwm Dulyn translates to the Black Lake and is one of my favorite valleys here in Snowdonia, Wales. This is a route that not many take, especially on a bike due to the terrain. Its usually very hard going due to the long grasses and sodden ground. Perfect for the Salsa Mukluk then! Would you […]

Surly Crosscheck v3.0

There’s an enduring love for the type of bike that’s become popular recently under the heading ‘Gravel Bike’…distant cousin to the ‘Touring Bike’…influenced by European cyclocross and road bikes. Hell, Trek made their bones in that now-famous barn in Waterloo Wisconsin making steel touring bikes that allowed cyclists to roam the vast American landscape. A […]

Cedaero Custom Frame-pack Review – by Dustin Marsh

I’ve been using framebags on all of my adventure oriented bikes since 2013. After good clothing, I would put a framebag as second on my list of must-haves for winter fatbiking. When I adopted a new Salsa Beargrease last summer, I began the search for my next bag. I introduced Cedaero in my product spotlight […]

First Look – Wren Sports Bar & Stem

A couple of weeks ago, I bolted a new joystick onto my Fatback Corvus FLT carbon fat-bike that some of you might know as Ten Beers. Joystick is an interesting bit of gnomenclature from the early days of gaming. A stick that creates joy! In this case, the joystick, in question translates to what most […]

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, […]
