    The best for last. Well the best piece of singletrack I filmed on the day I took these vids. This is a new piece of trail I recently discovered. Oodles of fun. The 5inch wide front tire is almost too fat for some sections....

    Sweet Singletrack #3 .....

    Went and seeked out one of the most brutal climbs in the area. Last fall when I first got my fat bike I tried to climb it. I had really let my fitness go at the tail end of the season and I only made it 75% up. Do I make it up this time?

    Just some footage from my Fat Bike ride from last weekend. I call it. Today's Ride. Yeah I know. Very profound....

    The trail has some huge puddles that haven't dried up this summer. They just keep getting bigger....

    Arrow

    Winter slowly approaches North Western Ontario. We had a few flurries but nothing major. The temperatures are yo-yoing up and down the freezing mark.

    I bought the bike I should have in the first place. The Surly Moonlander. More float for my boat.

    My younger brother always asked questions about my Fat Bike. But always cringed when I mentioned the price. He wanted one but didn't want to pay for one.

    So being the amazing brother that I am. I said if he bought a frame and fork I would give him all the parts off my Necromancer.

    I got the above average lung capacity and good looks from my parents. He got the height. My frame is too small for him. So we ordered him a Pugsley frame and fork.

    So he's now got himself a Surly Necro Pug for less than a grand with one season old parts. I got a spanking new Moonlander.

    No pictures yet or unveiling video yet. We only picked up our bikes yesterday from the LBS.

    I did take my brother out on his first Fat Bike Adventure today....

    Global Fat Bike Day 2013! Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada Edition!

    Well. 6 Fat Bikers were supposed to show up. But the first really cold day of winter (-20c) plus the accompanying wind chill kept 3 riders away. So me and 2 other Fat Bikers headed out on some snowy trails at a Centennial Park. 2 Moonlanders and 1 Necro Pug. That is probably a record for a Fat Bike ride gathering in this city!

    The Fat Biker who organized the ride wasn't feeling well and went home after 30mins. He was a trooper for even showing up! So me and my fellow Moonlander rider continued on.

    The results of the ride are found here......

    One of the most fun and beautiful things you can do on a Fat Bike is ride frozen rivers, creeks and streams. Me and my brother. Aka The Fat Bike Bros went out for a spin on a winding frozen river just on the edge of town. I used snowshoes to make a trail going upstream the day before. Downstream from our starting point a snowmachine had done the work for us.

    I present to you....Frozen River Raid!

    I've lived in this area all my life. Save for one year. I'm always surprised when I discover a new interesting place just a hop, skip and pedal stroke away from the city that I didn't know about. This is one of them.

    Me and my brother. The Fat Bike Bros went to visit the Lost Mountain Lookout.....

    Just a short clip from my ride last weekend. The snowmobile trails were almost in perfect condition in the area I rode. Nice and firm but not crusty. The days are getting longer and the sun is shining stronger. I think it is having a positive affect on the riding conditions...

    Me and my brother. The Fat Bike Bros. Went to visit the Flett Railway Tunnel a couple of weeks ago. It is a cool place to visit winter, spring, summer and fall. But it is particularly beautiful in the winter.

    It has been a few weeks since I have ridden my Fat Bike. The snow is almost all gone. I've been enjoying riding my other 'faster' bikes. Plus it is that in between time of the season where the off road trails are still wet and muddy and there is even snow left in some places.

    This weekend I went out to our family camp/cottage to help my dad cut firewood for the cooking stove and sauna. I brought my Moonie along and did the ride to Mountain Lake. The ride takes a bit over 2 hours. It is a occasionally maintained out and back gravel road with some tough climbs and super fun downhills.

    I would have to say that it was the most enjoyable ride I have done on my Fat Bike yet. Yes I would have been faster overall on one of my other bikes. The Fat Bike was great on the climbs. All the traction you need. You can just focus on your effort rather than looking for the lines with more traction.

    The downhills were awesome. There are numerous washouts from spring run off. Again I would probably have been faster one of my other bikes. But it would been that edge of control sketchiness feeling. The Fat Bike was very confidence inspiring on the downhills. In fact I hit a new Fat Bike top speed record on this ride.

    I present to you another one of my patented 20min boring vlogs. My ride to Moutain Lake...

    Never though I would own a road bike again. But I am getting into this Strava segment racing stuff. Need to close the equipment gap to my competition...
