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 […]

Here’s what John shared about this weeks WW feature photo. The […]

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 […]

Borealis Telluride Preview

Back in February, we received a Borealis Telluride demo to ride and review. We took the bike down into the shop and built it up just in time for our product tester (Ronsta) to be headed out of town on vacation. Since the bike was the size I ride, I decided upon a short term […]

Wallpaper Wednesday – Legends

ITI Champion John Lackey sent us this week’s Wallpaper Wednesday featured photograph. When one ITI Champ takes a photo of another ITI Champ we believe that’s a pretty good recipe for something legendary. Here’s a shot of Fatback Bikes rider/snow biking legend Tim Berntson on the Yentna River on Saturday, Feb 23rd.  We were riding out to Northwoods Lodge […]

Fat (video) Tuesday – Sunset Boulevard

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. Crust Cruising – By William Amaya Every […]

Raid Trans-Mauritania

Philippe Berruyer was part of the very first edition of Raid Trans-Mauritania (RTM) run last month (February 2019). He sent us some striking photos that sent me down the wormhole of discovering more about the East African Nation of Mauritania and the RTM. Mauritania is on the east coast of Africa and right next to […]

Wallpaper Wednesday – Sedona

This week’s Wallpaper Wednesday features a shot from Tom Cagle. Here’s what Tom shared about this striking portrait. It’s late Winter/early Spring in West Sedona. The photo was taken on a small side-trail just off Aerie trailhead. I stopped to imbibe in a post-ride, libation, and enjoy the panorama. This spot offers a spectacular view eastward of iconic […]

Wallpaper Wednesday – Staten Island

Today’s Wallpaper Wednesday feature comes to us from Gregg Murray from the beaches of Staten Island, New York. Gregg doesn’t mention gnomes in the description of his portrait, but the trained eye can detect the handiwork of these clever little devil’s.

Afterglow Lake Resort – Phelps WI – Northwoods Paradise

I was drawn to Afterglow Lake Resort by their incredible social media photo-stream. The intense sunset photography made me think back to shooting Kodachrome slide film and spoke to one of my life-long passions (photography). And it didn’t hurt that their photos feature two Bernese Mountain Dogs along with a Golden Retriever at the lodge to […]

First Look – RSD Mayor v4 – By Andy Amstutz

  I like being medium.  Medium is good.  Vertically…I’m medium.  I’m about halfway between two extremes of height.  In other words, I’m average.  Doors open up for those above me and those below but recently, one opened up for me in the form of a fat bike to test and review.  Medium has its benefits […]
