Conrad Stoltz’s Fatbike beach riding Adventure – video
I LOVE adventure! Which, after a few laps too many around the athletics track, is what drew me to triathlon at age 14. Two decades later, that same “Adventure” also drew me to XTERRA.
This video is about me (Conrad Stoltz aka The Caveman) taking my FatBoy on a beach Adventure along the South African South Coast. (Brenton-on-Sea to Sedgefield and back- 53km in 5h10)
Stunning scenery, challenging coastal terrain, the rising tide (nearly got swept out to sea) and riding & crashing off a dune because of darkness… Plenty of adventure!
The ride was made possible by the amazingly capable Specialized Fatboy Pro: A Fatbike with 4.6inch (12cm) wide tyres, ridden at super low pressure, which allows you to ride terrain never thought ride-able. Tyre pressure: 6-12psi (0.4 -.08bar) depending if its firm or soft beach sand.
If you wonder about sand and rust: – Squirt lube keeps the chain clean and almost completely sand free – a feat achieved by being petroleum free. Unlike the other brands.
After each salty, sandy ride, I wash the bike thoroughly, let it dry and then layer the few parts which can rust, with Squirt lube.
Stay tuned for more Caveman Adventures!
