Maybe I'm out of touch, but $4100Cdn for a frame only?!?!
Actually started Sunday night, second episode was Monday night. (I guess we can debate is Sunday last week or this week…)
Go to the NSMB Vimeo account, you should be able to see them all there.
There is a huge variation in Chilcotin descents. The stuff near Tyaughton lake isn't typical for the rest of the park.
Lynn Headwaters Park has 54km of hiking trails and 0km of bike trails:
Re: #8. Instead of taking your own bike, rent. Gives you the opportunity to try something different too. I'd suggest taking your own pedals and saddle in your luggage though.
I don't think the article was clear if that was a "work" trip or a personal trip since that wasn't the point of the article, but I was guessing that if you have a pro photographer along, pics and/or photos will show up somewhere, or maybe not.
Looking forward to seeing whatever comes out of his latest trip to the South Chilcotins (article, photos, videos?), it must have made a big impression on him as he mentioned it 3 or 4 times in this interview.
26+ already exists, it is called a fat bike.
Wet Chilcotin bike packing is what we were thinking of.
Kamloops is another area where they are packing trails to create fat bike loops. The group up there has a very active FB group.
"I think that if you live in the lower Mainland you really are in no position to judge fat bikes and the experience of riding them."
I think we are, after renting them 3 times last in Pemberton:
My wife and I bought a couple of them to open up more winter riding opportunities.
Due to the lack of snow in the Metro Van area, last weekend we traveled to Manning Park to ride in snow.
We've also used them to ride beaches in Metro Van and on the Sunshine Coast. Riding on sand & round rock beach isn't possible with a regular mountain bike.
We are also hoping to use them for bike packing trips this summer (after swapping to ~4″ tires from the current ~5″.)
"And check out those mitts." They are called pogs; motorsports (motorcycles, atv, snowmachine) & winter bike riders have been using they for years.
Expedition fat bike video? What about one? "Lost Coast Fat Bike and Packraft: Pedal, Paddle, and Push"

"Now that bottle cages are back…" They went away?
