Melissa’s Fatcycle

This fatbike will be really fun to ride. I pushed with normal chainstays here so am "only" using the Specialized Ground Control 4.6" tire on the rear to give some room on the 430mm chainstays.  A Surly Lou 4.8" fits but with not enough room for comfort. Orange Nextie carbon tubeless ready rims, Surly Bud... Continue Reading →

Foresthill Dirt roads

We got a bunch of nice dirt roads around here, and they're all pretty nice for riding the cross bike. Especially with some 40mm tires. Other than a quick dip in a bigass puddle, we had a great ride yesterday covering 52 miles and 5600ft elevation, with maybe 1/4 of those miles on pavement.  A... Continue Reading →

Global Fatbike Day, Reno style

I joined the Nevada Fatbike group's ride today to celebrate GLOBAL fatbike day outside Reno on some trails around Dry Pond and Whites Creek. About 15 or so showed up on a balmy 55-degree mostly sunny day, most of us overdressed...at least I was. I think snow when I fatbike so dress appropriately. But today... Continue Reading →

Tour de Trash with Sean

Sean led me on a big sweet loop from his house in Foresthill down to Auburn and back up home. He calls it the Tour de Trash because the middle portion of the ride, which follows the train tracks and parallel frontage roads, passes by some "interesting" houses and lots of scattered trash from hobo...

A classic Foresthill loop

I played hooky on Wednesday to ride before a big rain came in. Never know when the snow will shut if off up higher for the winter.  Where i live outside Foresthill is pretty far out. Heading up higher on Foresthill Road gets you even farther out.  There's a big OHV park that's got something... Continue Reading →

Isaac’s foothills tourer

I forgot to post some photos up from Isaac's touring bike build. I was under a self-induced deadline to get this thing built for his annual Chillbilly ride last Saturday so lost track. Some fun old-school things I've never done before on this bike like under BB cable routing for the downtube mounted shifters, and... Continue Reading →

Sean’s all-rounder all dressed up

Sean sent some pictures of his bike all built up!  Jordan Low did the paint work, Sean built it and took the photos.  NAHBS ready even if I'm not.  I already blabbed about it HERE so i'll refrain and just show his pictures.  Hope you enjoy.    

Chillbilly #3

Isaac's 3rd fall classic called the Chillbilly was yesterday, starting and ending at his house outside of the small Sierra Foothills town of Georgetown.  The 40-mile loop is a mix of hardly used curvaceous paved and dirt roads rolling through huge trees and benching in and out of cold drainages.  Twenty or thirty riders showed...
