As the editor of this video Kevin from Hawley USA said, “easily one of the best times to be had in Vegas!” Agreed! And we’re planning next season already.

Thanks to our partners that make it possible and all those that rode with us.

Fat Bike Dunes


From Dronescape Media Consulting and with Bike Hugger Magazine contributor, @mathowie, Fat Bike Dunes. I asked Matt about the video and he said

I’ve been borrowing a fatbike off a friend for the last couple weeks and had a fun time riding the sand dunes near Pacific City. Then I realized my friend Kenji was getting really good at his drone video work and asked him to join me on a day at the beach. I climbed and descended the dunes a few times, then just rode around and he flew around me the whole time. It came out better than I imagined, but I hope to do it again in the spring after I’ve ridden those dunes a bunch more and figured out the right lines, tire pressures, etc.

You can read more about the fun Matt had on the beach with a fat bike, in Issue 17 on iTunes and the Web. His article is the free cover story.

More drone videos are available on Dronescape.tv too. What I’d like about Matt’s dune ride is there were no big-air ramps, no energy drinks, just a couple cyclists doing what they love.

Music: MDK, Shinespark.

Tourists and Folding Bikes

Tourist and Folders

German tourists at Seacrest Park

After an errand for more beekeeping supplies at Home Depot and asking Santa Yoda career advice, we rode around Alki Beach. Stopped at a bike shop to adjust a derailer, and watched kayakers paddle around Elliott Bay. Then stopped for lunch at Marination at Seacrest park. That was part of our #2daysinseattle with folding bikes. The visual story was shared on G+.

Deal Killers

Remains of the day

Remains of the Day

In an issue labeled as fun, Patrick didn’t want to be the Debbie Downer, but what he wrote is important about the decline of shops in the US and it’s the bro deal.

The recent closing of Elliott Bay Bicycles is a bellwether for the larger concerns facing retailers throughout the sport. EBB had been around for decades, had attracted not just the best in mechanics, but was the home to one of the Pacific Northwest’s best-respected frame builders, Bill Davidson.

Hi. Thanks for coming into my shop and taking part of the consumer experience. Your disposable income is the sole source of our meager profit margins that support the shop’s overhead and indirectly my income.

The huge four and five inch tires rolled effortlessly down the street. I jumped off a curb, I darted through traffic, I popped a wheelie. However much this bike tipped the scales, it felt like any random 20lb hardtail mountain bike, and it was wickedly maneuverable, which surprised me even more. I fell instantly in love with this giant overgrown BMX bike underneath me.

A while ago, when I wrote about Fat Bikes, my take wasn’t quite that enthusiastic. I didn’t ride on the beach though, but in the snow.
