    Hey, when is the next winter riders support group event? I missed it this time to scope out the Star Wars Identities exhibition with my family.

    Okay ... sorry to sound like a nube but, I can see the benefit of the fat tires on snow, sand, etc. But what about ice? During winter, the backstreets I take around town are solid ice with ruts. Studded tires are my friends.

    My 3 season crappy wintry weather ride...with recently acquired Marathons (HS420) and Beaver Tail fenders. I have some home made studded tires I'm going to try, but may break down and get some Nokians anyway...

    Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think.

    No change from the last few years. Just waiting for more snow and frozen temps.

    Wanna trade weather ?

    Has been nice to be squirreled away in the frame shop while it has been rather cold... the Pug has been keeping me company as I sort out the details for the custom racks I am building and is of course needed so I can test the fit of things.

    The shop is in the country so there are lots of trails to ride there when I need a break from wielding the torch and the snowmobile tracks make a great road in the snow.

    Lots of fat bike love in here!

    I recently bought a set of 26"x1.9" Nokian W160 Mount & Grounds for my fixed-gear. I like them over the 26"x2.1" Kenda Klondikes I ran last year as they roll better (so much better that I'm considering bumping up the gearing from 58" to 61") and leave enough room to keep the fenders on:

    Maybe we'll even get more than a couple days of snow this winter.

    Yeah, I know. I hate when websites think they're smarter than you. Working on it.

    Sweet.

    ...

    I figured that if it works so well for my car that FWD would work really well for my extrabike (and it does) and it is really AWD when I am pedaling.

    Doing it single speed this year, used an 60's or so twin top tube murray and stretched the rear to fit 135 hub, enough room to run a skinny knobbie with fender out back and fender and knobbie or my stud up front. Gonna run bar end levers and wrap most the bars, the seat will go as soon as I get a new one. So far Boise has way warm weather so i'm in no hurry to finish (was 62f today)

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    I guessed that much... is it by the lake or in the mountains or somewhere else? It reminds me of Cascades Cons. Area, but I haven't been there for a long time.
