I have wanted to own a Pugsley for last two winters... now I finally have one! I was going to order Salsa Mukluk, but they are not easy to get at the moment...

First really short ride done today... too cold (-20C) and too busy, but I smiled all the time.

I have ordered Alfine 11 -rear hub, but it still takes at least a month to arrive, so decided to build it with normal gears first.

I love these to bits. Surly are ace, I love the way they do things that little bit differently like to offset 135 OLD spaced forks that allow you to run the front wheel in the rear with a different gearing set up 8)

I would love one to go along side my Big Dummy.

I see you are running the Mr Whirly cranks are you using the bb that comes with them or are you running another brand?

Very, very nice - at one time I thought that I could see a fat bike in my future, but as I can't even do justice to what I already have..... :(
