I did a write-up for tips for traveling with a dog in a camper van. Figured this is something people ask me a lot and I can share what I have learned so far. Also looked into remote monitoring systems, not in love with whats on the market right now, but there are some ok options out there.

We should really have some season-appropriate shots. Some of these are rather vintage with fat bikes being the rage these days. The Nokian Freddies Revenz studded tires were hard to beat for gnarly ice though.

Testing the new Fiamma 200DJ2 with the Yeti - at the beach and time in the bush down on the south coast of NSW.

Works fine with the wheel carrier with no adjustments to be made. It's solid but I'm going to make up a better security arm to solidly protect the bikes. Prob not needed but the bikes jut cant be replaced.. SB66's are not longer....

The Wedge Overlook recreation area near Green River, UT. Yes, you can go as close to the edge as you dare. There's a nice MTB singletrack trail along a good part of the rim around the canyon.

Eight days at Gooseberry Mesa. It doesn't get any better than that! My favorite camping spot, right at the edge of the mesa cliffs, partially overlooking Zion NP. At 71, I think I'll pass up the South Rim trail in the future. It's now rated at "Extreme Difficulty" and it worked me.

A while back I bought my wife, who has MS, an electric pedal assist bike. Only problem was I could not keep up with her. Even pulling the trailer with our two daughters she was smoking me. After bombing around town on her bike I bit the bullet and jumped in. I sold my FS freeride bike and bought a Surly Karate Monkey with Fox 34 Float and converted it to electric. 750W torque sensing mid drive, tuned to 1000W, with 700ah battery. After disparaging electric mountain bike riders for the last couple years I have to do a full 180. This is the most fun ive had on a bike since I bought my first FS bike and went bombing down a rock garden laughing like an idiot.

Did a thirty mile ride with 3200ft of climbing over the weekend in a hair under 2 hours. Its like having lift access wherever you ride. Way too much fun. Had to disassemble my bike rack and pull the welder out to do some reinforcements for the two e-bikes.

Weighs 49lbs. 41 without battery which is, coincidentally, the same weight as the 7" FR bike it is replacing.



Dont judge me! Its fun!

Interesting ^^. So do you typically pedal at the same time the motor is running? Can/do you also run under just pedal power, and/or just motor power?
