There was also a display of fat bike related goods from 45 North, I have one of their Greazy merino wool cycling caps and it is fantastic, keeps your biscuit rather warm and fits easily under a cycle helmet. The demo bikes were popular even when it started snowing and the two bikes I enjoyed riding the most in the wet trail conditions were the - Bear grease , Salsas carbon fiber fat bike & Surlys Moonlander
Hopefully within the next year or so I would like to help organize a winter Fat Bike race as that way current fat bike owners could come together for some friendly competition plus it would help promote Fat biking in Japan. At present there are not winter fat bike races held here as finding available space is sometimes difficult although with places like Snow peak and ski feilds I sure we can find a suitable location somewhere. Snow peak is a well known maker of quality out door products based in the foothills of Sanjo and thanks to them we have a great space for the winter fat bike demo weekend. When the weather is nice , its also a great place to go camping as well.
To finish off the day we stopped off in Sanjo one the way back for a hot bowl of the local famous ramen, I like ramen but I certainly did not require the extra portion on top that made my bowl look like Mt Fuji.
