    As promised, though the straight-on garage door shot didn't come out.











    Now if I can just keep people from messing with it then leaning the frame against the concrete pilings and scratching it.

    I don't mind some scratches on a bike...I'd just prefer to earn them myself.

    "love is in the air..."

    maybe put the rear wheel in one of those slot stands, so the bike won't need to get leaned? That or put a crash pad on the top tube, etc.

    put a "touch and die" sticker on it
    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. ;)

    WB - Lemme ghost ride that Pug into the shrubbery for ya... once that happens you won't be worried about scratches.

    I was riding with some guys one morning and a fellow shows up on a totally gorgeous FS bike that has been totally blinged out and after listenng to him go on and on about how much he spent and how he thought he should probably not ride it (cause it might get scratched up) I asked if I could check it out.

    I immediately proceeded to fire the bike into the bush and down a small embankment and said that he was now okay to ride his bike.

    Strangely enough...he seemed very appreciative of my gesture and did not try to kill me.

    We actually couldn't ride for quite a few minutes as everyone was laughing too hard.

    Show me a slot stand that can handle a 4" tire and I might consider it.

    I could just lock it up. Putting a sign on it that says, "Touch me and I'll kill you" sounds like more fun, though it wouldn't be read anyway.

    Why do I always think about the electric fence charger approach at times like these?

    After 10 to 15 minutes of "my bike is too pretty to ride" you would have done the same thing.

    So WB... lemme see your Pug.



    When I get my Kona built I may have to have someone ghost ride it into the bush for me cause it will be also be too pretty to ride and if I am thinking that I will get myself killed on the singletrack.

    WB - You are getting to that age where no-one would think having a kickstand was odd.

    I'd gladly let you take it out and thrash it soundly, but therein is my point: I don't have a problem with scratches from riding. It's scratches from ignorance that don't belong there that I take issue with, like getting redneck marks on your truck from hillbillys leaning up against it with their rodeo belt buckles, or the scratches we get on our rental bikes from the idiots the outfitter hires that pile bikes up on top of one another. If the customer has a crash and scratches a bike I always ask if they're OK and tell them I'm sorry that they had a mishap, but damaging perfectly good equipment due to neglect is not acceptable. I have given more than one of the outfitter's drivers a piece of my mind.

    I built the pug tough to lend out, but if you're not tough enough to ride it...GTFA.

    That's actually the first thing I do to any new mtb frame I get, I purposely scratch it before I put any parts on it.
    Strike like an eagle and sacrifice the dove.

    I concur.

    Race Face made a 100mm BB Diabolus crank for a while that was a nice higher-end choice for a Pugsley. Apparently all the Pugsley and DH folks snapped them up and they're just not available. I'm happy enough with mine though.

    Word, you need to name that bike The DeathMobile. Maybe finish it off with a Delta Tau Chi sticker, or get it a white bike cover that says "Eat Me".

    Exactly. That is also what Sixty will level as he heaves your bike into some bushes at the bottom of a shallow ravine.

    If you don't mind telling, how much would a similar pugsley build cost? This winter is looking a bit rough, so I may want a snow bike to keep me sane.

    I would estimate in the $2500 range. It is possible to economize and build one up for just under $2K. I went a bit higher end with the few parts that aren't Pugsley-specific ( i.e.: frame, fork, bottom bracket/crankset, wheels and tires). It's also entirely possible to build a higher end model, though the base weight doesn't allow any lightweight wonders.
