Alaska bikes

Fatbikes are the S-10s, 350s and Rams of the bike world and it’s no wonder that Alaskans love them.  Ride them all winter on snowmachine trails, then float over gravel along the Susitna River and venture into the thick on unsigned, unmarked and unmapped ATV trails.  These are Alaska bikes.  Mine is an Alaskan road bike.

Jeremy’s Salsa Mukluk 3 receives it’s first mudbath while creek-crossing near the Susitna.  It endos and wheelies like a bike should, and passes the rigorous testing of an ex-BMX rider.  A Revelate framebag has permanently converted him from his usual habits of riding with a backpack.  A rack will serve as overflow capacity; never again a backpack.
