So, I find it odd that the Pugs fork accepts rim brakes... because I don't know of any that would clear that tire...

Nah, both the rim and the fork are offset. It is funny that Surly offers canti bosses. The customer was happy with it, though, just in case he gets stuck in Bolivia without access to disc brake parts.

Before I got my xtra I was dreaming of how amazing a pugsley xtracycle would be. That thing would be (is) a beast.

True story. My roommate had an Xtracycle on his bike... and being young and dumb we'd be at the bars about 3-4 days a week. We'd drive there, and then walk home (pretty long walk, but short when drunk). But he would take us back to our cars the next day on the Xtracycle. Those things are the best.
