First some basics, with drop’s you are limited in width and not so much in tire clearance. This is the opposite of mountain bike flat bars where width is basically limitless but … [ Read More ]

Jones Loop bars are awesome bikepacking handle bars. Jeff graciously sent me a pair to play with this past winter. I promptly put them on my Ogre and they toured around with my 3 year old in Guatemala. Since then they’ve been on my fatbike providing the sort of all day comfort I love. To … [ Read More ]

Spring.. the sun has returned in full force. Trails are firm and snow stability is high. Time to get after it. Anchorage has amazing backcountry ski terrain right outside of town everything from mellow corn runs to steep test piece chutes. Last spring Billy and I headed out and accessed the Eklutna Glacier using fatbikes … [ Read More ]
