Well, of course you know I'll take that as a compliment. Thank you.

But nah, not really. Just having fun where I live. Like many others up here, I love winter.

You're the man! Personally, I hate winter. However, my MIL is moving to Colorado in a yearish, so I'm wondering if there are any fatbike rental places.

Birthday present from my girlfriend - 2013 Giant Escape. My first new bicycle in 25 years - a far cry from my 1987 Diamondback Ascent EX.

Unusual build! Did you get the chance to compare how it rode w/ a regular fork vs. the suspended fork?

Actually, a build like that is quite popular in adventure cyclist circles.

Only when using the lockout on the forks, I am getting a bit soft in my old age and prefer the comfort of some front suspension. I also use this bike for everything including some off road touring, green laning, fetching the shopping and going to the pub, it is pretty universal.

ninja in a clown suit?

just another Land Shark,...



built for me in 2007, before John switched to building Carbon Fiber frames. a truly awesome bike, but most people are so distracted by the spectacular paint work that they don't notice how special the frame is.
