I have been eyeballing the Surly Pugsley for some time now. At first it was because it was just so goofy that it could be fun. Now I'm really thinking there may be a place in my stable for one.
Any owners have any thoughts, experiences, or ideas why it'd be good to get one? What'd be a rough cost of one with an XT or X.0 level group?
Kansas weather is pretty unpredictable. Snow one day, sunny the next followed by 5" of rain.
There was a guy in Austrailia that crossed 3 deserts with his. He used an old cattle route and rode 1200 miles going from water well to well filling up the extra bladders in his "Large Marge" one-wheeled trailer. Here's a link: http://www.wildworks.co.nz/csr/home.php
I think it'd be pretty phat just to build a Pugsley, start at WA and ride the coastline all the way around to Maine.
