Vic, that must be incredibly cool to see your photo used! I’ve been reading your blog for the last while, really enjoying your stuff. You were the first “blog”, set of articles, to come up when I was looking up pugsleys. Your GDR, and subsequent bikepacking set up hooked me, and now I check in every day. I like the fact that you, like many of us, enjoy two wheels, and your own “bought and paid for” in sweat and beers momentum. I, too, have a slight two wheel addiction, mine however, does include some big travel gravity assisted machines, but I have, and will continue to enjoy climbing, and covering territory.
And as a Red Deer AB boy, and a left coaster by origin, I envy you living in the most beautiful place in Canada! Living in Alberta is what is causing me to look at snow bikes, as I’m tired of not riding in the mountains thru the winter, and thought those might increase my ridable time. But, working oilfield, and having two wonderful kids, and an awesome active wife who likes to ski, means winter riding usually isn’t a reality any way!
Sorry to go on, I did mean to just say how cool it is to see your photo being used by Jones, and how your riding is a lift to a snow bound alberta boy!
All the best!

@Mike – I appreciate the kind words and I am always happy to hear from a regular blog reader. Although the Nomad is as much bike as I need I would like to try some lift served riding this summer – partially because I’m a bit lazy and partially because I think it would be great for Sharon to get in a full day’s riding without the climbs to hone her skills. I was also thinking of hiring a coach to give me a 1 day session on faster turns on the DH. I slow down a lot more than I need to on my fast DH runs. I’ve tried some less steep runs braking as little as possible and been amazed how much faster I get down the course if I have the balls to commit to a turn, but I need more technique to feel good about that.

A Pugsley isn’t just for winter so if you get one and just get in 10 rides in the winter you don’t have to put it away in the summer. In fact you can ride mtn trails in May/early June long before the snow melts for MTBers with 2.1-2.4″ tires. Plus when you go to a family event and can’t go far or long the Pugs is a great bike to goof off on within eye sight of the family.

I am stoked about seeing my photo on the Jeff Jones website. I love sharing the MTB stoke and photos are a great way to do this. I would also love to make some $$ of my photography to supplement my reduced income these days. Staying on the Island is tough due to the limited job options and even if I could trade pics for a bike frame it would help a lot since most of my disposable income spending is gear and travel. I didn’t “sell” this photo, but who knows maybe it’s the start of something…=-)
