    What have you been riding lately?

    It’s winter in Alberta. Went for a ride on global fat bike day. Finished with a tailgate bbq in the snow . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Felt Bicycle Pics

    Sorry haven’t logged on in sometime , the bars on the felt are from the motoX shop ,cheap and no name very wide and flat . I’m looking at going with some. Klunker bars from velo orange .they seem to have more sweep back and will likely be more comfy . Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
