Fat Tire Bike

I purchased a Salsa Mukluk this summer after a ton of deliberation on what fat tire bike I wanted and what I wanted to accomplish on it. Denver has received a ton of snow this winter, providing an awesome opportunity to finally get the bike in the snow.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect…

Look Mom No Training Wheels – Isla Bikes

Mountain Biking in Fruita, CO for Thanksgiving

  If you’ve followed us for any significant amount of time, you’ll notice that we don’t let stereotypical holidays drive what we do with our down time.
