Why I ride in the snow:
I like the first snow of the year after the mountain bike and cyclocross races are all done so I can break out the fat bike and just go play. I like the cold dark night rides in the dead of winter where your jacket freezes solid and it feels like it’s made of cardboard because I’m the only one on the trails. I like the springtime when the sun starts to feel warm again, but there’s still a month of beautiful snow waiting to be ridden. I really just like riding my bike and fat biking the snow brings it back to the basics of just getting out and enjoying the ride. Truthfully it’s a bit sad every year when the snow on the trails starts deteriorating I know that every day could be the last day on the snow until next year.
The Corvus is an amazing machine that feels so light and agile even though it keeps you afloat on 5 inch tires. It has the pedigree of an xc race bike, but it’s capable of tackling the toughest terrain in the world. This is the bike I piloted to the ITI success this year.
The single speed Ti Fatback is also a rocket ship and brings a smile to my face whenever I ride it. It handles everything and depending on the terrain I can run it as a fatty or 29+. It’s a perfect machine for beach rides and general fun. I also intend to race this bike in the Pierre’s Hole 100 SS category as a 29+ this summer.
