i have owned the pugsley from 2007 when i had to have one, i also use it with 29er wheels. i just had to have one the minute it came out. what other bike is as versatile?

GT is a similar story owned since 1999 second owner again! it has been used as my special bike ever since. never abused, parts are in a semi modern build but i think i've built this bike 6-8 times in different ways. it rides very nervously even with real tyres on it. i think i would be too scared to ride with these on rocks.
