I am pleased to present this beautiful new fat bike! Painted in Royal Purple with gold and black accents, this particular bicycle was designed to handle a mixture of trail surfaces, and is optimized for 26 x 4" tires. It was conceived as more of a "trail" bike than a "winter" bike. These 4" tires run at low pressures provide gobs of traction and a high level of confidence on rough trail surfaces. Though tires wider than 4" are popular too, I feel that this size hits a sweet spot in between monster size and weight, and something lighter and more nimble. A variety of lightweight parts brings the total weight to right around 25 pounds, ready to ride! It was a pleasure to build and I hope that it will be even more of a pleasure to ride.
The 2018 Tour de Heifer is coming up!
As in the past few years, I will be set up near the registration tent to offer mechanical support at the start for those who find they need a last-minute fix. The ride is happening on Sunday, June 3, at 8am, and this will mark the eighth edition of the Tour.
Register ahead of time at Bikereg.com. This is a fantastic local event, and there will be fresh beer and pizza at the finish line! Not to mention some of the best and most challenging routes in the area.
Hope to see you out there!
I am excited to be part of the 39th annual Putney Craft Tour!
The Putney Craft Tour began in 1978, and is the oldest continuous craft tour in the country. Every year during Thanksgiving weekend, a number of artisans and craftspeople in the Putney area open their workshop doors and welcome the public for shop tours and sales of their handmade goods. On the tour, you'll find a wide variety of talented craftspeople, and there are 24 studios in total this year. A big part of the fun of the tour is picking up a map and driving around to visit each shop in beautiful Putney and a few other surrounding towns. I will have bicycles on display and soft goods for sale.
I hope to see you this weekend during the tour. Come on by for a visit!
