    Well done, Sir. Looks like you're having a blast.
    Do you have a pic of the bike?

        Take me with you! I have a skinny bike but I did just order a pair of ice spiker pro tires. I have got to give this a try this winter.

          Sorry, you can't do this with skinny tires, spikes or not. Flotation, traction and power is the key.

            Great, I gotta build another bike. Might be fun to watch me try... Anyways I rode this all summer. I am in Incline. You can come with me anytime. Retired and walk the dog (ride the bike) every day on the single tracks. I stick to Mt. Rose to Kingsbury, but don't go south much because of the construction on 28, but there is plenty here in Incline.

                Curious what type of range your battery can provide for you in these conditions. What tire pressures do you run ?

                  It is tempting to just hold the throttle wide open and spin the tires all day long. Battery life is terrible. One bike has 7p of GA cells and will go until I am tired. The new fat bike has 4p of 30Q batteries and we will see where they fall short.
