More recently (about a year ago) I was introduced to Becky & Byron Vordemann and their Wee Lass April through Black Ribbon (Plus-Bike) Test Pilot, Bruce (best name ever) Smithhammer. Last winter […]

Wallpaper Wednesday – Long Island in Spring

  Greg Murray shot this week’s Wallpaper at Southampton, Long Island, New York. Spring provides a target rich environment for fat-bike beachventures! I think that I’ll try to get together with the willing and ride the beach this weekend. Spring is here. I know because I already have a mosquito bite on my ankle. But most […]

906 POLAR ROLL RACE REPORT – by Leia Schneeberger

The 906 Polar Roll is the final race of the Great Lakes Fat Bike Series.  It’s advertised as a 35 Mile race (Actually 41, Thanks Todd) which starts on the main street of Marquette Michigan.  This has taken the top spot for my all time favorite fat bike race.  I was nervous about this one as I’ve never been on […]

Mukluk – (noun) muk·luk  \ ˈmək-ˌlək \ a soft winter boot traditionally made of reindeer or seal skin originally worn by Arctic aboriginal people of Alaska.  Mukluks weigh little and allow hunters to move quietly.

Fat Video Tuesday – Kid and Hansi play “Go Fish”

I feel pretty connected to this story, even though I’m not a passionate angler. I’ve known Mike and Hansi for years and we’ve even worked with Mimi Matsuda, the artist that painted the bags, that are featured on the Salsa Blackborow mid-tail fat-bikes ridden in the piece. I’ve even done some bikepacking on a Salsa […]

Andy gives credit to Marty as the photographer and the rider is his own bad self…..Andy Oleson; aka – Angry Andy. He’s riding his […]

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 […]

Fat (video) Tuesday – Frensham

Tomorrow is the first day of Winter on the earth’s northern hemisphere, so that make’s this Yule’s Eve; or as your favorite cable TV meteorologist might refer to as the winter solstice. I like to say it’s the shortest day of the year (even though each day is 24 hours long, more or less). The […]

Bucksaw Goes Electric

By :  Jason Mead The Fatbike category has grown by leaps and bounds over the past two years. Once used solely for winter applications, the Fatbike has expanded its reach to touring, big box stores, and everyday trail riding. New technologies emerge for this category seemingly overnight and trickle into other categories. To see just […]

Hills and Beaches

By Jeff Price My local favourite loop this one. There’s nothing better than leaving the house in the early evening, riding some of the hills and dropping down onto the beach for the last few miles home. This ride takes me along the causeway to the medieval town of Conwy and up into the hills […]

Salsa Anything Cage New vs. Old

ad   The folks up at Salsa sent Sven one of their new fangled plastic Anything Cages, but he doesn’t own a fork with braze-ons to accept cargo cages, so it fell to me. Come to think of it, Sven is testing one of those sassy Salsa Blackborrow’s that has the appropriately ventilated fork made […]

The Pugsly did […]
