    how much does it weigh?

    those surlys are really attractive in the utilitarian function over form way...
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    The front is a rear wheel, a Surly singlespeed disc hub. I have a freewheel ordered so I can strip the derailleurs off and run it single in a pinch.

    I went big with this build: big bars, big brakes, big tires...I even have a big snow camo freeride saddle coming for it.

    What's it ride like? I can't imagine it rides like anything I've ever been on!

    Well, this bike has only seen a few trips around the parking lot. I just got it fully built up last night.

    Last Winter a very cool customer lent me his personal Pugsley to ride for a couple weeks. He had it stripped of canti bosses and powdercoated with a cool Alaska state flag headbadge. It was so nice that I felt a little nervous borrowing it, but as he said, "Go for it...you can't hurt that thing". I built mine up to be tough so I can also lend it out and not worry about it.

    The ride is definitely different. The wheels measure out at 29", but it doesn't feel like a 'niner. I could best describe it as "inertial". The big tires are slow to accellerate, but they roll over curbs no problem, sort of like a short travel f/s. On the snow is where my mind was blown.

    Whatever you can do to make a bike fit for snow, snow chains, studded tires, etc...it's all owned by the float of a 4" tire. Even on ice there's so much tire laying down that there's as much traction as narrower tires on dirt. On dry pavement it's a little strange as the tires hook up so well, they're a little hard to turn. The 800mm wide bars actually help with that, but really I just had to have some after seeing them at Interbike. They're so audaciously wide...they just belong. I'll let you know more how they feel when I throw myself at a few snowbanks. It is coming soon.

    You getting any snow this weekend? It looks like our forecast is calling for some maybe Monday or Tuesday.

    That thing sounds like a blast and looks like a tank! I want one now.

    This is a craigslist buy I made a few weeks ago. Alpine Guadalupe 12 speed. I know little about this kind of bike a google search turned up nothing. She's my main commuter. Pretty fast for a steel frame and handles well. I plan to switch to a smoother tire and put on racks and panniers.



    Second commuter. Schwinn LeTour. I usually just ride this one on weekends. Actually this one is my favorite which is why I save her for weekends. Very fast and also handles well.



    My backup bike. Gary Fisher Wahoo. Tough and dependable but the slowest of my bikes. I ride this when it rains or I want a good workout.

    I love pho long time.

    52 cm Soma Smoothie, Surly Pacer fork, Ultegra group. Just got done slapping it together and tweaking it into working, but got the wrong sizr derailleur clamp so it's got a near 20 years old 7-speed 105 FD for now. Almost works well.

    That's toight like a toigah!

    Man, I was hoping to post some completion pics of the Pugsley but my parts didn't come in yesterday.

    I got a laugh out of the rep at our distributor when I told him I wanted the biggest everything. The saddle I ordered is one I saw last on the DH circuit. It's a Titec El Norte and is about 30mm longer than most saddles with a nice gray/black/white scheme. I also tried to order the Holzfeller pedals in metallic gray, but ended up with white. Now I'm wishing I'd ordered the Kore bar in white. Oh well, covered in snow it'll be white in any case.

    Anyone know a good source for pogies?

    Think back to that time when you were a little bike fiend and your most prized possession was your bike... what kind of bike was it ?

    When I was a kid my most beloved ride was my CCM Mustang... with some hocley cards and clothespins it became my motorcycle and without, it became my horse when we played Cowboys and Indians (I was always an Indian).

    That bike took me everywhere and was the coolest thing on two wheels...there were no mountain bikes or bmx bikes back in the early seventies and if you were anyone...you had a chopper... a muscle bike... and if you had a three speed you were king.

    This is my new old girl... I installed new wheels today (the stock wheels were thrashed) and used the SA 3 speed I took off my my Twenty and a 451 with a drum brake I had kicking around the shop.

    I need a stick shift...

    I didn't notice at first how the twin cantilever rails bend down sharply at the head tube - neat.

    I had always coveted a Stingray in sparkle green as a kid (I got a girls' knockoff - blue sparkle Pierce Arrow, my big sister's bike). I found one - a '64 - around my 30th birthday and kept it for a year or two....lotsa fun

    I don't think I have ever seen a Stingray here and the Raleigh Choppers are also pretty rare little birds... although the Mustang was made in abundant numbers and sold well the little boys like me that had them pretty much ran them into the ground.

    Finding one in such good shape was some very good luck on my part and I also have a box of Mustang parts and another scruffy frame that is almost enough to build another complete bike.

    They are also pretty popular among the younger folks who like to trick them out with 144 spoke wheels and extravagant metal work but I will keep the bike in it's nearly original condition.

    The three speed and drum brake are about as pimped as the bike will get... they are not original but make the bike fairly practical in that one can actually get some good road speed and provides some pretty decent stopping power.

    It is a wheelie popping machine for sure...
