Good hubs and tires will keep you moving, proper brakes will limit your run-ins with local flora. I like disc brakes, rather than calipers. They don’t take nearly the effort on steep downhills, adjust with a simple twist of a knob, don’t get hot and fade, and don’t make as much noise.
Standard fork: Thursday has had pretty good luck with White Brothers and Marzocchi. The prototype had a White Brothers Magic 120. It looks as if the new “Stage” model will clear a 3-inch tire, so I’ll give that a shot. Thursday gets a pretty decent price from White Brothers/MRP, so he can pass on some savings here.
The bikes allow us to cover more country faster than walking, plus game retrieval is many times a downhill cruise. That first year, we were the only hunters riding bikes opening weekend. Since then, we’ve seen many others use bikes in our area, but few stay the course every day of the season.
2006 Specialized Hardrock Comp hardtail. I don’t like rear suspension because I feel it robs energy that I want transferred to the ground when I pedal. I use conventional toe-clips to accommodate my hunting footwear. The tires are 2.20″ for extra load distribution. I also have TopPeak front fender to keep mud and water out of my face.
Flat Tires: While infrequent, there is the risk of getting a flat. I always carry a spare tube while out hunting so I’m not stranded and left walking my bike back if I get flat. This is really only a risk depending on your terrain. We had some run-ins with cactus in South Dakota that ended with a flat but even so on a trip with four people all on bikes, we only had one flat.
While he’s not one to brag, Rick’s frames are the go-to choice of riders from the legendary DFL Cross Dress Series to the Cycle Messenger World Championships. They will all tell you the same thing: There is no finer frame than a Hunter.
I love the CB4 and what it means for future tools that allow me to easily hunt from a bike. I hope that means more innovative scabbards, gun racks, frame bags, panniers and trailers designed for hunting.
The predator-afflicted can make stands for miles across the desert without the need of firing up a noisy vehicle. There is little doubt that e-bikes are vehicles of many applications, and they cost a fraction of their electric-powered counterparts.
Then I saw tire tracks. Bicycle tire tracks. DAMN!! That’s what I need. I started thinking about all the deer, elk and moose I’ve seen riding trails in Idaho, about the way they often just stare at you when you ride up on them, or maybe just amble away. That might be just the thing for elk hunting, right?
A number of things can make hunting from bikes successful and downright fun. To start, get in shape. We see hunters bring a bike on opening morning, ride it for a few hours, take it back to the pickup and not ride it the rest of the season, because their leg and butt muscles hurt so much.
Patented features of the AutoComp Elite® such as Automatic Compensation, Anti-Chatter Technology (ACT) and Bit Minder, save time and increase productivity. Hunter on-car and bench brake lathes service rotors at the fastest possible speed without sacrificing quality. Hunter brakes lathes can also easily service a wide range of vehicle applications.
Getting to remote stands usually requires entering into the woods well before daylight; getting out requires long walks in the dark. Neither scenario makes for a silent passage. Striking a compromise between a quiet approach and a quick advance can be difficult — which is exactly what a mountain bike can offer.
Admittedly, ATVs outperform bikes when it comes to one critical task: getting a deer out of the woods. Sorry, folks, but I’ve tried it all — plastic sleds, bike trailers, you name it — and there’s just no good way to lug dead weight with a bike.
Finding the balance between functionality, weight and aesthetics is no easy task—especially when it comes to electric bikes. With Biomega’s latest, the Biomega OKO designed in collaboration with Bkarje Ingels’ industrial design firm KiBiSi, all…
