Grand Targhee Resort Embraces The Fat

Grand Targhee Resort Embraces The Fat [ 8 ] November 30, 2011 |  XXC Mag XXC Magazine once again welcomes our friend and contributor Dave Byers to the blog to talk fat bikes. Grand Targhee Resort has become the first ski resort in the country to promote snow biking. Beginning this ski season, Grand Targhee will allow snow bikes on their groomed Nordic Trails as long as riders purchase a Nordic ticket for $10 per day or a Nordic season pass for $115. Grand Targhee is also hosting their first snow bike race on Sunday, January 15th to coincide with Teton Valley’s Winter Festival. I have to admit that for the past two years I have considered donning a black ninja suit and poaching Targhee’s Nordic track at night just to experience the undulating terrain that we enjoy all summer on our mountain bikes… but I resisted the temptation. Now it is perfectly legal thanks to Grand Targhee’s Andy Williams. Grand Targhee’s 2011/2012 winter season opened on Friday, Nov 25th so we rallied a

Busyman working on customized bikes, saddles and bar grips

For Robert in Queensland - some pretty heavy duty double toe straps with pink perforations to match the Fizik Arione recover in black kangaroo with Braille perforations. The pink is something close to 'Rapha' pink and the saddle says something like "f#@k art just dance". A nice little set, must do a black kangaroo saddle for myself one of these days. My latest leather pieces are two kangaroo tails in black, they're more textured and tougher looking than the main part of the hide. [Blog here] [Flick here]

Mmmm... I could go for some SALSA CASSEROLL!

Casseroll The Casseroll is our relaxed road bike, perfect for long road rides, credit card touring, and randonneuring events. Most road bikes these days are based around racing style geometry and that is where the Casseroll diverges from the herd…or peloton. Instead, the Casseroll is aimed at riding, both short and long distances, in comfort. That comfort results not just from frame geometry and rider position, but also from the Casseroll’s capability to run much larger than normal road tires, 700c x 38mm to be exact. Bigger tires equal increased comfort on rough pavement. Semi-horizontal, forward-rear dropouts let you set up the Casseroll as a singlespeed, fixed gear, or geared bike. A painted-to-match lightweight front rack tops it off. Enjoy the open road. Put in a nice long ride. Wave to the paceline and wish them well. Casseroll. Truly one hot dish.
