New Mukluks in garage

Got our new Mukluk 2s home last night. Will start getting them sorted out this weekend with some rides. I did remove one cog out of the cassette to make an 8spd out of it and eleminate the chain/tire rub.

I look forward to adding the winter riding forum to my read list and getting some tips. Winter riding is new to us as we usually rot away on the trainers when it gets cold.

Those are Mukluk3s, not the 2s. Sweet bikes regardless, you're going to have so much fun riding them year round!

My Mukluk 3 (small) just came in and it is a blast. I am amazed that it can handle very loose and deep sand. I have had three great rides on it. It's a lot more work than my road bike!!
