    Sealed cartridge bearings in the hubs and bottom bracket are essential if you plan to get wet as is the use of frame saver to protect a steel frame from internal rust.

    I picked up my Pug used at a great price and with the new freewheel in the back and what I would have had to pay for a custom rack (I build these) I am into this for less than 1K although buying a new Pugsley off the rack would cost double that but would still be cheaper than building it up from it's respective parts.

    They really are a rather incredible ride and much more versatile than many people think... I live in a place where winter lasts over 6 months and the Pug really shines at this and is also great for adventuring and will handle terrain other bikes cannot.
    Thanks for the great reply, the pugsley sounds amazing! I looked around on ebay and gumtree but no sign of the pugsley! I did find this though, and it's near me is it worth it? http://bit.ly/14h1EBN. And thanks for the advice on the waterproof bit I'll be sure to go sealed cartridge! Are there any other similair bikes to the pugsley with that much wheel clearance? I've never seen wheels that thick to buy

    Getting this sweet babe on Sunday!! Quite a steal for 130 bucks!


    (Note, this is not my picture, found online to show what it looks like)

    My first real MTB. A Haro Zero-Eight. Alloy frame, 130mm travel fork, 2x8 drivetrain, disc brakes F/R. I've heard some bad things about the adjustable dropout but this bike seems to be fine. Needs new brake pads for front and rear and maybe new calipers.

    Sixty Fiver: your fat content is not good! I have no need for one. Despite that fact, I want one. Badly.

    Meantime: new fork. Just on today. No ride time yet. Dumped rain most of the day. Feels great around the block... Hope to get on trail tomorrow to get pressure/sag/damping sorted.

    I believe the clouds in my coffee more than the weatherman on t.v.
