RE: Bicycling On Beach Sand Or Snow?

What is holding that thing up in the sand? I don't see a kick stand or any support other than the small pile of sand around the tires. Barney Simply the wide tires and some sand, that's it. My fatty weighs in at around 35 lbs.

RE: Bicycling On Beach Sand Or Snow?

Walmart sells one for about $200 but I'd stay away since it's only a single speed. If you're on the beach then you definitely want some gears. There's times I have to put the bike in the absolute lowest gear which means I'm spinning and spinning the pedals but not going fast. lol That headwind on the beach can be a killer. You can get one for $450. I got the Elite version on the following page but I changed out the brakes. Bikes Direct Fat Bikes

RE: Bicycling On Beach Sand Or Snow?

Thanks for the info…love riding on the beach. The beaches have taken a toll on my cheapo diamondback mountain bike….starting to rust and sand is “grinding” in the crank bearings. Maybe I’ll set up this bike just for the beach. How they do on payment/dirt? Hopefully good enough ride around the campground. It handles really well on everything. A lot of people who ride the dirt trails have actually sold their standard mountain bikes in favor of a fat bike.

Bicycling On Beach Sand Or Snow?

95% or our camping is done at a beach campground about 20 miles from home. We are there very often from April-Halloween and we still commute to work from there. We are always looking for fun new things to do when camping and last year I bought two kayaks. This year my brother is building a cornhole game and I bought a fat tire bicycle or "fat bike." "What is a fat bike?" you might ask. Basically, a fat bike is a basic mountain bike that can accept MUCH wider tires. My fat bike has 4" wide tires where some fat bikes can accept 4.8" tires. You simply run the tires at 4-8 psi and you can actually pedal on the beach. It's a pretty cool feeling. Here's a shot of my fat bike tire compared to my mountain bike tire. They are both the same diameter at 26". http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/1622481_10203000219553956_1089891122_o_zps8d1927b1.jpg height=400 First shot of the assembled bike. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/41732A38-4912-4D78-AC8F-D25373567A7B-529-00000051D136A15D_zps04e4d7a7.jpg height=400 Now for some fat biking on the beach! http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/4DF4C0CD-5140-4A86-BA65-4ECEC5567CBB-277-00000018D26ECD93_zpseb005456.jpg height=400 http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/0F0D4C6C-A5EE-4211-8B23-33E63C9B1302-277-00000018C66F7CCE_zps90f8264b.jpg height=400 I packed some lunch the night before and hit the beach after work. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/7E32429C-806E-4C90-9F6B-BD7BF3F30387-12371-00000D6AFE64F0B0_zps3b3fd778.jpg height=400 http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e191/yourbasicdj/887EFA6D-FCE2-4839-8C1C-B76BFDDC48D6-12371-00000D6B0857D19B_zps052e3fd9.jpg height=400 This thing rolls very good and much better then you would think. I find that it's best to go about 2 hours after high tide because then you can ride over the smooth sand that was left behind by the high tide. This bike can also be used in snowy conditions with great results. It you like to mountain bike in the trails then this bike can handle that too. I love this thing and it's definitely a head turner when I'm pedaling on the beach because most folks haven't seen one.

RE: NASCAR decline

Let's be real. One person person has been a huge impact on the downfall of NASCAR. That would be the driver of the 48. Because...............? 66 Cup wins, 6 championships. Sounds like a wheel man to me..... That's exactly it. Always up front, always winning. That's great if you're a JJ fan, but not great if you're a fan of just about anyone else.

RE: Worst race name ever?

Today's NASCAR race is the "TreatMyClot.com 300" First thought: gross name. bleagh. Second thought: maybe it should be the "TreatMy$$$Hemorrhage 300" because there are so few spectators.... I'm pretty sure Brian Vickers had no problems with the name of the race.

RE: Fox sports, what a joke....

I like NASCAR on FOX the best, no contest. DW doesn't bother me at all and I'm not a fan of his brother but I do enjoy laughing AT him. :-) I don't like the new beginning montage and the stupid robots. I really liked Toby Lightman singing "Let's Go Racing Boys" or Dierks Bentley's NASCAR version of Sideways. Now Fox uses the same stupid music that they use for all their sporting events. Blah.

NASCAR Road Course With Banked Curves?

I heard Kyle Busch a week or two ago say that his idea of a cool track would be a road course with some banked curves. I never thought of that before. Sounds pretty cool to me.

RE: Nascar Fontana

I tuned in just as they were saying Denny Hamlin was sent to the hospital before the race started? What happened? I think Logano put the beat down on him again at Fontana. :-) Actually, it's just a sinus infection.

RE: Nascar Fontana

I feel the same way about Tony, despite what happened last week. If he has a couple of good races then I'll change my mind. As far Danica, I don't understand the hatred towards her. She gets a lot of attention even though she doesn't run all that well most of the time. So what. She's a girl. So what. She's good for the sport and she's a lot better to look at than Tony Stewart.

RE: Protecting Exterior Painted Wood?

I read that the sun can make the poly brittle and maybe turn it yellow though.

Protecting Exterior Painted Wood?

My brother and I just built a cornhole game to use while camping. We'd like to paint the wood but were wondering if there was a way to protect the painted wood? Basically, can you put a layer or two of poly or something over the painted wood?

RE: Mistakes we don't want to repeat!

No matter what, walk all the way around the rig before you climb in and drive away. X2 If someone strikes up a conversation when you are doing your breakdown procedure, check it all again before you roll down the highway. That antenna, wheel chock or power cord is real easy to forget. Do another walk after you are done. Its never a waste of time. There will be few times that you'll notice something important after you were Positive that you were already good to go. Not just around, check under and above too! At least 3 times in the past 2 years my brother forgot to close the dump valves on the camper after dumping to go home. You would think that the FIRST time he got soaked with holding tank remnants when he went camping again would have been enough to remind him.....

RE: Sand Mat For Bottom Of Stairs?

I Use the same system as BurbMan and it works pretty well and I spend a lot of time at my favorite beach location. I stumbled on This Mat that works better than any other mat that I have tried, The video shows how it works so well. X2 We also have all three steps covered with the same material. Works great!! We spend a lot of time at the Ocean and lots of sand. X3, we bought a couple of those mats after our friends recommendation. They work great. It seems like you wouldn't want to use it with your bare feet though. What do you think?

RE: Should I get a different camper

As mentioned, make sure that you understand what you can safely tow and consider your growing family too. More people means more food, more clothes, more toys and most importantly, more weight! Plan ahead. With that said, I would upgrade to something larger. You'll find that a LOT of people start off with tent camping and pop ups and gradually go bigger and bigger. Not too many people go out and purchase a fifth wheel right off the bat.

RE: Square Footage Of Your Sites?

You guys really measure your sites? No. The dimensions are listed when I reserve online.

RE: Square Footage Of Your Sites?

That sounds great, but unfortunately it's not an option around here. Basically all the CG's here on Long Island are setup kind of like parking lots.

RE: Square Footage Of Your Sites?

cm, what;s your favorite site? We always hit Wildwood to kick off the season and to make sure everything is working. We hit Smith Point a bunch of times with usually a summer trip to Hither Hills. We love Smith Point because we can still commute to work. :-)
