Borealis Yampa Fat Bike Is A Pure Joy To Ride

We recently got out on a ride on a Borealis Yampa Fat Bike that we had the pleasure of selling and building for a valued customer.

In short let us just say that this bike is a pure joy to ride.

We built her up with a Sram XO kit and HED Big Deal Wheels.

In doing so we were able to keep the bike under 23 lbs!! Yep, you read that correctly. Insane.

The bike is just awesome! It climbs like a race oriented hard tail while descending like a short travel dually. Due to the performance of the bike we would feel comfortable making this our daily rider if we had to pick one mountain bike to own. It just does everything well..and of course it has a big advantage in deep snow that would slow non fatties down.

Borealis Yampa Front Tire
45NRTH Dillinger 5 tires are giant tires with lots of studs!

23 Lbs of Fat Bike fun! Isn’t she pretty…

Borealis 1

We just added studded 45NRTH Dillinger 5 tires to this beast! Let’s just say that traction is not an issue!

CycleOps Jet Fluid Pro Impressions

Well here we are again Mr. Winter…

Too cold for riding outside? Riding inside can be fun!
Too cold for riding outside? Riding inside can be fun!

For many cyclists this means less time on the bike or no time for some folks.

In our prior post regarding indoor trainers/training we made a good case for why in today’s world you shouldn’t be able to continue to ride your bike , albeit indoors.

Since our last post we have spent time using another one of our CycleOps trainers which has become our favorite go to trainer when riding indoors these days.

The Jet Fluid Pro by CycleOps has indeed become the trainer which we spend most of our time on these days.

Jet Fluid Pro Trainer By CycleOps

It is a fluid based trainer but with a better resistance unit on it than the Fluid 2.  We feel it offers a smoother , real world ride and maintains a constant power curve even after long rides where other less expensive trainers begin to change resistance with ride time when you don’t want them to.

In a nutshell(from CycleOps):

Road-Like Performance, Pure and Simple.

Powertuned Technology provides the perfect balance between the most realistic power curve and a precision balanced flywheel for sustained efforts and accelerations. Simply shift into the big ring for added resistance, just like out on the road, and let the JetFluid Pro prepare you for all the challenges of the upcoming season.

We designed the resistance units to be quieter and produce a more consistent power curve unit to unit, plus have extended bearing life.

How the Resistance Unit Works

  • PowerTuned flywheel creates higher inertia for a ride that’s like being out on the open road. Chamber and impeller allows for optimal fluid distribution for a smooth and quiet ride.

Cooling Airflow Design

  • Our patented design channels 100% of intake air to efficiently cool the resistance unit and maintain a consistent power curve.

Precision Balance

  • Individually precision balanced fly wheel eliminates “dead weight” and maximizes inertia.

Already have a trainer and are looking for some help setting it up or tweaking your setup?

Helpful Tips And Hints :

Newer CycleOps trainers are now using their patented Clutch Knob system:

Happy pedaling!


Fat Bikes Are Fun!

2014 Trek Farley Fat Bike
2014 Trek Farley Fat Bike

Well they are here to stay with their giant fatty tires designed to tame deep snow and sand.

And by they we mean Fat Bikes!

Yep , what started as a garage made winter project in parts unknown has become one of the fastest growing segments in the bike industry in recent months. Originally designed as a deep snow/sand machine they have morphed into an all around fun bike to ride. With several makes and models and countless after market accessories and parts available many folks are getting on the bandwagon to fun town and getting themselves a fat bike.

Trek recently released the Trek Farley , a reasonably lightweight aluminum offering a nice value package that will more than do the trick. Being situated in Wisconsin , an area that sees the very harsh side of winter Trek has a good grasp on what makes a good fat bike fat as you will see in the Farley.

So come check out what the buzz is about if for no other reason but to quench your curiosity , you may want to roll a fatty…
