So what does the Pugsley have (apart from being white) that the Mukluk didn't have? Track ends, I suppose, so you could run it SS or IGH. Although I'm not a big fan of track ends so that would count against the Pug for me.

Why not just have a Moonlander with two sets of wheels, BTW, if you want the two different tyre sizes? The frames can't be that different apart from tyre clearances.

I thinned the fleet.......and wasn't using the mukluk then.

The new 4.7" tires will fit on pugs and mukluks apparently, does mention in the blog.

Yep the moonlanders tyres will apparently fit the Pug when on the 65mm Large Marge rims.

Nice to see some more tyre choice too :D

Black looks very nice on the Moonlander and i think the Pug is going to be black too.

The Pug lets you run both which the Mukluk doesnt due to not having intechangable wheels front and rear. Oh and "steel is real" apparently

Mine running Alfine in the rear and ss in the front. Track ends are no biggie if you use chain tugs.

Reckon your right

Think the black ops pugsley should be matte or satin though
