Shown above in the 4 photos is the original "Bigfoot", looks like it's still going strong after 6 years and hundreds of miles of training... (photo courtesy of "Cougar Mountain Dogsledding")

Shown with the "Full-Runner" option above, also available with a half-runner platform ...

 NEW: The "Half-runner", check out the photos on the cart pages... 

 NEW for "BIGFOOT" one set of the standard tires/wheels for training, and a much lighter set for your "RACING BIGFOOT"... inquire here....

 YES, train & race with the same cart ......

Since the standard full runner frame for a "BIGFOOT" only weights 27 pounds and can take a beating like no other cart...... there was no point changing it, it just needed a lighter set of tires/wheels, I'm having custom wheels manufactured, they saved weight, and are stronger, plus, a set of custom racing wheels also, it takes only the removal of 3 nuts to make the change over....

Did I tell you "Bigfoot" likes to go swimming, look at those "Sammie's" pull ! ! !

(Thanks for the great photo Ricq, photo by Pam Landers)

Sometimes "Bigfoot" thinks he's a dog sled too....

To give you an idea how big the tires really are, here's a regulation basket ball for comparison...

Definition of "Bigfoot"

"Bigfoot" weighs 95 lbs. as seen here. It's 68" long, the handle bar height of 46" (from ground) can be made to your specifications, (custom sizing) but not adjustable, the running boards are 8" X 23" with a 12" X 16" section in the middle on the "Half-runner", the "Full-runner" is just missing the center section.... and 9" high (to the ground). When the front steering pin is removed the main part of the scooter is 55" long and weighs about 60 lbs.

The tires are 20" tall X 7" wide (see the photos above), and are of the ATV variety. They are capable of eating up all kinds of terrain: snow, sand, mud, rocks, roots, and limbs, and are equally at home on pavement if you choose. The tires are the shock absorbers of the cart/scooter, they are very flexible, and follow the contour of any surface. The wheels are a special bead-lock rim, they make it almost impossible for the tires to become unseated from the rims, making is safer for you to venture into the wilderness and encounter flats due to low tire pressures, I encourage low tire pressure for a softer ride, and to either increase or decrease the work-out for your dogs...

The front brake is hand operated, and the front fork assembly still removes as before, the rear brake is still foot operated to allow easy take-down for transportation.

The brakes are of a variety found on go-carts and mini-bikes. They cost a bit more, but are worth it when it comes time to stop. They don't drag or rub on the tire, so they won't wear on the tires. The brakes are adjustable, and very easy to work on if it is ever necessary.

The handlebars have foam grips to isolate your hands from the steel handlebars. Standard large front fender will keep you clean, wide (32") platform for comfortable stance, the model shown is the runner, with the middle cut-away, the full width brake bar is easy to find when you need to stop... handle bars can be custom ordered for height... All "BLACKSTAR" carts and scooters are painted/powder coated with a "Federal Safety Yellow", that is baked on at 400�F. giving you the most durable finish possible...

Please ask, if you have any questions...
