A fine gentleman put together a fat terrain / urban X / get lost in the woods ride yesterday. A lot more people than I expected. This is between Burnsville and Saint Paul in Minnesota.

With the amount of hike a bike and equipment abuse it involves, I gained a more intimate understanding of mikesee's remote touring equipment choices.

The Nate tires really do well in the mud!

Cleaning this without putting a foot down was interesting. Can't stop, can't go too fast either. Felt a bit like braking on a snowboard.

My new build: size large Fatback aluminum with carbon forks, Sram X0 9-speed gear, e.13 cranks, Time X-roc pedals, Fatback imported hubs, Dura-ace cassette, XTR front derailleur, Thomson elite post, Syntace F109 stem, Easton EC90 bars, Larry tires, Michelin inners, Avid BB7's, Avid ultimate levers, Uma II rims, Salsa skewers, Gore cables, WTB seat and Cane Creek 110 headset. The only thing missing is the chain (pretty damn handy devices). Total weight: 29.7 lbs. Not too bad, but could be lighter. Kevlar tires anyone? In the meantime: bring on winter! :thumbsup:

Yesterday's ride in SoDak included running into bodies of water on 4 of the 8 roads I traveled. Windy as hell too.

Finally, it's my first real contribution to this thread !

This morning i went out for a ride through the park and around town.
This gave me the opportunity to take a few shots.
While i was at it i had the idea to make as much of the seemingly obligatory pics that frequently pass my screen.
You might know them as the 'leaning against a fence' or 'bike at sunrise' or 'bike hanging in a tree' and the 'bike and wildlife' pictures.
Also i have a few pics that conveniently combine 2 of the previous named themes.
(to bad i could not find an old WW-2 sub laying around...;))
