North of Norway? as in the North Pole?

Are there humans on Svalbard Island?



edit: wikipedia to the rescue.. holy heck those folks are hard core living 78 degrees north


"Longyearbyen is the world's northernmost town, and the northernmost settlement of any kind with greater than 1,000 permanent residents."

For north american reference, Barrow is only 71 degrees north!

Oh! Please tell me what high fender this is on your friend's bike!!!! I've not seen a blue one, was it painted?
The high fender that the blue KTM has got is from Polisport, Supermoto model. It was painted to match the colour of the his bike

I had screwed in Best Grip studs #1400 in Dunlop d908. I think #1400 is the best for iced asphalt roads. http://www.supatracks.com/pdfs/bestg...-ice-studs.pdf http://www.best-grip.com/pdf/catalogo_EN.pdf

P.S. 300 studs enough for iced roads.

Just picked it up on Sunday. Came with (literally) a carload of farkles from the other owner. Still have a few things I want to put on it (more lights, 19/17 wheelset), but it's pretty close right now.



It's fairly tall with the Renazco seat for my 5'9" height, but man do I love it so far.
