A video review by Bullet

A Ride up to Mineral Basin—American Fork Canyon

A ride report by the Professor. I went for a ride today up American Fork Canyon, looking for snow. I missed the last group ride in the snow because I was out of town on business. I also enjoy riding solo—lots of time to think. I drove up to Tibble Fork Reservoir and started my […]

Available Fat Bike Tires

A repost by the Professor. I came across this list of available fat bike tires on the mtbr fat bike forum. The options are getting better.

Sometimes we feel like we can’t do something because we don’t have the right equipment. Most of us will probably […]
