    What should I add to my necro Pug?

    Im picking up my Surly Necromancer Pugsley and it has places for attachments up the wazoo. Other than the standard water bottle cages, what are some other items I can/should attach? I will be using the bike for off road, the occasional commute, and maybe more once I get used to the bike

    You'll need a place for your pump and quite possibly your lock too!

    It's not for hunting... it's for the zombies.

    By the way, my last name is Hendricks!

    Serously, you will probably want a frame bag or rack for the Pug for errands and commuting. Possibly mounts for lights, and a maybe bell/horn if you're riding in traffic a lot.

    Im a Hendricks that also plays guitars. I used to joke about Jimi being a distant relative. In regards to the Pug, I was thinking more about the front fork has a couple sets of braze-ons on each side. It seems like they are everywhere on that bike

    Racks!! You have to have somewhere to put weight in case you get in deep water or the tire floats up

    Have you seen the Salsa Enabler fork? That fork has ridiculous amounts of braze-ons, people put multiple bottle cages, etc. on those.

    I saw the thread title:
    What should I add to my necro Pug?

    And thought "He's gotta small dog that likes to get his from cold, stiff ones?"

    no pics yet, because Im picking it up today. It will be stock until I recover financially from buying it. In regards to the fork, Im pretty sure it has the same amount, if not more than the Enabler. I was looking at adding some color bolts (and other items)and I counted at least 16, dont know for sure till I get it. Im also talking to Seagull about having them build a custom frame bag, but in the meantime everything I need to carry fits in my Seagull messenger bag, so I can wait a while on the rack, if I go with one

    Just ride. The do-dads that you can't live without will find you. Isn't that what the Pugsley did?
