    Shorter chainstay. More rake in the front end or something similar to get weight further back and stay light on the front end. Maybe taller stem or larger riser bars.

    ^you bought the studs...nice!

    We just got 3-4" of wet heavy shit and it's still coming down as mostly rain/ice now. Should pack down well for some good snow riding before it melts.

    Yeah, I bought the 1st gen Kona and it is a tank. Changing tubes, tires, handlebars, and derailleur has helped tremendously, but she is still a tank. I guess I really don't care though...sometimes I...

    Got out yesterday on some well traveled stuff and it was good, but the line was narrow. Getting a little bounce off line and I'd sink 8-10" instantly and then my foot would go up to my knee. It was...

    Totally shut out today :cussing: No crust or firmness formed at all and fuck it's soo deep. Tried to ride a deer trail to no avail. Went up and down snowbanks to make the best of a road ride....

    Isothermal snowpack and now going into a freeze for few days. Riding could be really nice if it sets up solid. Woot woot!

    ^I could have fun with one of those.

    It's going to be a lot of work to actually get my trails back. It may never happen! 25-30" last week and now we're looking at another 12" today. I need a snowmobile because this snowshoeing isn't...
  15. Ha!

    Ha!

    I added a slightly stoopid track to my vid and Vimeo shut me down. That's new to me. Anyway, here is a little vid of my local ride...it was snowing so lens got a little messy.

    ^went with the pogies, nice!

    Yeah, I'm gonna have to snowshoe my trails in once this is over. I'm sill riding single track that only has short uphills, so it's doable. There are some dirt roads...

    Yeah, that was happening a lot last yr for us too.

    Today's ride was dicey and fun depending on aspects. North facing was snow covered sandpaper! Awesome! South and western were dirt or thin...

    Predicting 3-5" here. Should be perfect if it stays in the 3" range.

    Yeah, I rode yesterday and it was a little sketchy without studs. I have a mix of dry land and snow/ice covered now in Portsmouth.



    I was thinking the same thing for western riding. It would...

    Damn, those Framed bikes have nice components for the price.
  24. Yeah, I don't know what to say. When you have...

    Yeah, I don't know what to say. When you have 1k, you really don't have a lot of options. So, what is more important that cannot be easily upgraded, is what I would look at. Then of course the...
  25. Yeah, you really have to counter steer those...

    Yeah, you really have to counter steer those tires. Although, I don't have any experience riding others, so I really don't know. The Vee's are nice on slick rock and firm sand paper snow since they...
  26. That's interesting. I have the same Vee Mission...

    That's interesting. I have the same Vee Mission and it does suck if the snow is soft at all. Spin spin spin. Seems like a really good price and nice tread pattern.

    Weight is close enough and...

    It's so good right now! Light snow falling right now which is just perfect on this hardpack layer.

    Woo! That is definitely saying Fkit! Those are sweet tires though.

    I finally got a fat tire air gauge yesterday and realized I had run with 3lbs in the rear on my Sunday ride! Didn't even check...

    An inch or so of fresh on frozen ground, also on 1-2" coral reef, and rogue ice patches is just a blast on the fatty! So fun riding techy snow covered features on essentially flat tires and just...

    This yrs is quite a bit better and not a big price increase. Tubeless compatible rims/lighter, derailleur like you said, better brakes, little different frame, no stupid wraparound handlebars and...

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure I'd like that! I'm all over the map with bike wants. Similar to my ski quiver wants. It's definitely wrong...thankfully I have two boys that are now 6-6'+ and can justify...

    Saw the Bucksaw and Ice cream truck live for the first time yesterday. I'll take one of each. :smile: They can't keep the Bucksaw or the Fatboy pro in stock...large that is.

    yeah, inside is nice and all, but my little rig barely fits the fatty...plus how can I look core if my bike isn't showing off to the lessers of the world.

    Rog, you realize they salt the roads...

    What's the deal to help the build up of shit (aka Salt) when transporting during the winter months. Inside is the obvious answer, but that isn't always an option and makes a mess of the car.

    Or...

    my situation is much different than yours.

    I'd say we had 4+ of wet shit, but it was rideable with FAT tires, not those hybrid things you ride! :fmicon: Once you set a track is was good, I just did laps f'n around.

    Wake today, funeral...

    Fun to get out on some snow yesterday! Although admittedly, I'm not ready for the firm fast dirt season to be over yet and looking forward to the melt down here.
  41. Do you have the bluto one either one? Why are...

    Do you have the bluto one either one? Why are you riding the Fatboy over the Farley? $$ does factor into decisions if you don't get the pro deal like you two. Well even when I got the pro deals,...

    Couple grand less for the fat boy pro is more my speed. Trying to get one will be shitshow once again most likely.

    Oh shit! Thanks for that info as I would definitely have done the same.

    Hey numbnuts, I ride at lunch and it's extremely limited where I can go! It is what it is biatch :the_finge
  46. I agree with your friend. Here on the coast we...

    I agree with your friend. Here on the coast we get melt/rain/freeze cycles along with snowshoers and those ruts are a bitch. Suspension would help all of that I think.

    I think I would still...

    Well, we have the 'roughest' stuff here. Mandatory rock drops and stuff....the Granite State :wink: Not big, but enough that you're hanging off the ass end. The other part is my bike is a tank. ...

    I actually ride stuff that has some tech to it. Not just dirt roads to the da beach.

    I rode that stiff shit enough in the 80's and now these balloon tires are great...on SNOW...but the rebound...

    riding dirt on a fat tire is like bouncing down the trail similar to a kangaroo.

    suspension is very necessary on dirt!
