Foto Gordo from Germany

This week’s desktop background was shot by Michael Schneider on the Brocken, which is the highest mountain in the Harz district in Germany. The Brocken is known for strong winds which frosted everything with snow and his Mukluk really pops, in stark contrast, from the frosty background. If you’d like to see more from Michael, he put […]

My Salsa Mukluk might look like an ordinary Salsa Mukluk, but to me, it’s a little different. It wasn’t always MY mukluk, and in fact, at one point, I even looked DOWN on […]

We’ve combined those two elements together on an extra small 9:Zero:7 that belongs to Bethany Raven. Bethany’s Dom’L’Orange fatty […]

Salsa Mukluk 2 – Mid-Term Review

It seems in some ways like I’ve had this bike forever, but yet, the first time it hit the trail was early December, just six months ago.  The Mukluk 2 somehow has become my defacto mountain bike.  I’ve come to believe that this fat bike is what all other mountain bikes,  really want to be […]

Frozen Water Ride

With each passing ride, I discover why I’m loving this bike so much…it takes me places I normally couldn’t explore. The lack of snow this “winter” has been a blessing and curse in many ways.  I am a cross country skier and if a snow-less December had happened in previous years (it has) I’d be […]

Mukluk 2 Second Ride

As luck (and Mother Nature) would have it, nearly all the beautiful snow we had a week ago, had withered away from three days of incessant rain. Not that I really needed snow to ride the Mukluk, now named Fatty Bo Batty, but it’s at least a feature of enjoying these fat bikes. Instead, and […]
