    Zabriskie's custom titanium snowbike...

    He's got one of the sweetest fatbikes I've ever seen.

    Belt drive, extra lightweight rims, hydros... and (just started making them) carbon fork.

    Not sure his new home in Westlake Village has much snow ... but a cool bike nonetheless.

    I think it would work in soft sand too, where the lack of a greasey chain would be particularly welcome.

    Anchorage's Speedway Cycles' Fatbacks are starting to break into the big time! Between the Fatback and Chain Reaction's (another Anchorage shop) 9:Zero:7s, most of the locals are starting to offload their Pugsleys. I was at Chain Reaction the other day and they had an aluminum 9:Zero:7 with drop bars and SRAM Apex and I almost dropped the money. I'm not sure how chugging down the road at 10-14MPH on a drop-bar snowbike would look, though. Then again, when it's single digits out I don't like going all that fast anyway.

    Snow bikes are lots of fun and sure beat the trainer during the winter. I know guys that ride them year-round.

    Sweet Machine!

    Z's ride is one sweet machine. I just got the same type Ritchey WCS stem and seat post for my roadie. I suppose Z got it for training on snowy days is Utah. Still, I bet it would seem pretty to most of us roadie weight weenies. My theory is that everyone is a weight weenie a greater or lesser degree. Thanks for posting it and brightening my morning.

    Nice BMW with the Thule rack in the background too.

    I wouldn't bet my life on it, but I'm pretty sure it's not a 1. The 1 doesn't have the side marker light on the front fender like the 3. The 1 has a more "surprised" look to the front fascia and the roof line of the 1 is more squared off than the 3.

    Other than that, I could be wrong!

    It's a 3. I have a 1 and that is not a 1.

    Wonder how the belt drive handles snow or ice build-up.
