I LOVE your vids, Steve! What a great was to promote the trails- how beautiful. It's also a good ad for the Pugsly- how else could one get through that much snow. Reminds us that those few precious snow rides are worth it.
Love the angles and various scenes. All you need now is a soundtrack and it can go viral!
Actually, the frame is not a Pugsley, although the rims and tires are from Surly. It's a Wildfire frame from Alaska. (If anyone wants a blue Pugs, they'll have to re-paint one on their own
). Unfortunately the builder Mark Gronewald has closed his business this year. He was the first guy to start making Fatbikes for the public as far back as 1999, unfortunately that's all he did cyclingwise besides build wheels. The other two Alaskans selling Fatbikes also run bikeshops and have Lynskey & Merlin building the frames for them. No worries - most of our fellow riders here in Michigan are not too familar with fatbikes, I hear a lot of "nice Pugsley!". Surly was a godsend for Fatbike builders having produced the Endomorph and Larry tires, but I've got to admit the "Pugsley" name is a seriously catchy name for a big-tired bike. I'm sure people will refer to their new aluminum Mukluk as a Pugsley as well. Key to remember if no one bought Pugsleys, then the Endo&Larry tires wouldn't exist for all manufacturers to use.
Do a Google search on "Coastkid71" from Scotland, Surly should compensate him for the amazing fatbike vids he puts out using their product.
Bad thing about my vid here is it has too many slow moments, and some scenes that just stop. Nothing to really inspire me to make any tunes for, or grabbing a royalty free tune to use. With the BacPac I don't have to shoot blind anymore, the video camera now has a viewfinder. Just used it at work, handy little gadget. Currently I'm sitting on a PLRA video from last spring I want to put some good music behind. May give you a completely different view of where fatbikes can be ridden.
