    I had the LBS give me a pair of those black platforms that clip into Shimano SPD pedals. The intent was to allow people to try out my bike without the need for special shoes.

    I had some issues with my pedals icing up yesterday, so I'm going to leave the platforms in as a fall back option.

    Riding in deep snow with the Pugsley is an odd sensation. You can feel the bike floating on the snow, yet when you pedal it just keeps going forward anyway instead of the rear tire just digging a hole.

    I run double sides spd pedals on my Pug and quite a few other bikes... for winter riding I wear boots but when it warms up I will switch to cycling shoes.

    Am not sure I will keep the helmet webbing as it really is not that practical unless I want to carry soccer balls or whole frozen turkeys...

    Will have to top load the bike to demonstrate how it works... it is pretty slick.

    The only other thing I have to do is swap one of the small male ends at the bottom by the compression strap for a female clip so these can serve to secure the bags against the frame... right now they are just tied down with those straps.

    You should be familiar with the set up of the bag and should see the free female end that the removable top straps will attach to... they are just tucked away in the side pocket

    You sir have inspired me to hit the pages of www.sportsmansguide.com Mil Surp pages in order to see if I can find something similar for an Xtracycle build I'll be doing.

    Now you've gone and posted yet another of your impressive stable, and it is a fat bike at that. Sixty, you'll get me into alot of trouble with this!
    I think that if you live in Colorado you can justify it.

    From today... has been great in the foot of snow we have received in the past three days.

    I love every fatbike I see. I can't wait for them to start getting more attainable.

    Here's my 71/72 Super Course getting gassed up. NJ is the last place where self-serve gas is still not legal, so this is the attending putting gas in it.

    Looks like some kind of shield to keep stuff from flying off the tires and hitting him in the face.

    I have been looking for a setup like you have for a LONG time. Are there any identifying marks in those bags? Where did you happen to find them?


    Those things are awesome!

    It's not legal in Oregon, either. Whenever I go across the border to CA I end up sitting in my car for a minute wondering where the attendant is before I remember.

    It is a spray shield... does more to protect the bike from spary than me as those tyres do not throw up much in the way of water or snow. Attached with velcro so I can take it on and off depending on what I am doing.

    a few more pics. I don't own a car. I've had the Hunter 29er for about 3 years now, and have used it for many things, including touring, an attempt at the tour divide, club rides, and of course mtb rides...

    Agreed, the Lambdas are quite nice. I still want to try the MKS RMX pedals, though.

    What are those extender-looking doohickies the pedals are screwed into?
