Reserve is £150 lower than I last advertised the bike on here, saving almost £700 on new bike.

They will both do the same things, just the moonlander has the edge on wetter, softer ground with the larger footprint.

Very few things it can do better than the pug if I'm honest, I'm happy to praise both bikes.

Bike was up for £1200 the other week, before I pulled it off for my girlfriend to use.

Now have it on eBay at reserve of £1050.

Quite a bargain, seeing as it was new in October, easy life and new tires etc.

Jango....20" on a Pugsley is potentially on the large size, even for a tall geezer like you.

The 'new' Pugsley's have a slightly higher top tube than the old ones and don't forget the effect of 4" tyres, i.e. standover height on a Pug is MUCH higher than a 20" MTB.

If it was an 18" I would have bought it :twisted:

Tires work out same height as a 29er

BB to centre of TT is 18" so lower.

BB to top of triangle below seat collar is 20" that's how surly measure things.

Im 6ft and it's fine, girlfriend rides it with seat down and she's 5ft 2"

Hope this helps, any questions just ask.
