The big tires make it look as if it must weigh a ton, but they're mostly air, after all! Our display bike, shown above, tips the scales at 37 pounds.


still heavy by my reckoning :shock:

Heavy yeah, but think of the fun factor - grinning like a twat and riding over anything that gets in your way with 18psi..........it appeals to me anyway :)

That is just such a barking concept that I love it! What sick mind thought it up? I know, wouldn't it be nice to swap the front and back wheels over mid-ride...?

I'd love a Pugsley, if I lived somewhere I could use it. I could certainly have had a lot of fun on one in Oz:

A lot of these fat-tyre bikes grew out of the Iditabike race in Alaska. The Pugsley is a budget version, but for the deluxe models, try Googling for the Moots snowbike or Vicious Thunderwing:
