    Say what you will about fat bikes, I’m a fan and love seeing the array of custom builds such as this custom Pugsley. While I’m not entirely sure that my fat bike will have a permanent home in my stable, I’ve been having a lot of fun on it so far; so we’ll see. Anyway, this fattie is a fully customized from the paint done by Swamp to the singlespeed Paul x Large Marge wheels; I’m really feelin’ the Black Floyds too. Check out a few more details below, and see some more crazy custom builds here.

  • Minnesota Bicycle Commuter: Pug Riding

    I just came across Doug’s blog – MnBicycleCommuter, a few months ago and love what he’s got going on out there. We’ve yet to get any “real” snow here in Burlington, Vermont but watching Doug ride his Surly Pugsley through snow-covered paths just makes me want winter to kick in even more (and has pushed me to make next winter my “fat bike” debut). Make sure to check out some more photos here.

  • 2 Wheels, 2 Planks

    Loyal reader and local enthusiast Peter W. sent along this heads up on what sounds like an awesome time. It’s going on this Saturday night at Starks Nest Pub down at Mad River Glen.

    “A multi-media slideshows featuring our month-long, bike-supported, backcountry skiing adventure through Norway’s Arctic Alps this past spring 2010. Carrying everything we needed on our bicycles to ski, camp and explore, we immersed ourselves in a human-powered adventure unlike any we had experienced before. We climbed and skied mountains from summit to sea, pedaled our bikes under the light of midnight sun, and discovered a generous, caring and environmentally conscious people. Don’t miss this extraordinary celebration of human-powered mountain adventure.

    Admission to this show is 5 for Green Mountain Club members, $8 for non-members. All proceeds from this show benefit the Green Mountain Club (GMC), the keepers of Vermont’s precious Long Trail.”

  • Hunting on a Pugsley

    I can’t think of a better bike for all you hunters. Although that handlebar mounted gun rack might be a tough one to track down.
