…things to do before you die

this outing’s adventure figures fat. as in the bike.

headed out on my first fatbike adventure in the snow around watertower. still cold, but after about 3 minutes of riding, cold is not an issue. sweat is.

i rented orange crush from brown’s cycles downtown. it is a 9zero7 bike with a salsa fork. fun. i played around with tire pressure a lot. when you let out all the air, the bike will climb a glass wall. i want to play around with font pressures. the only issue in deep snow was front end directional control. considering i was wading through 6″ of super dry snow, it tracked pretty well. sidehill stability was interesting. the big, balloon tire floated downhill easier than it did cross slope.

i made some fun powder turns down a 30 degree slope at the end. like skiing. huge grin on my face at the end.

 the song is by the swedish band, johnossi off their 2007 self-titled debut. an amazing album. but track, There’s A Lot of Things to Do Before You Die, is 2 minutes and 39 seconds of goodness.
