    I thought about getting a bike from them. My brother lives near the company.

    Check out my new ride:

    4 inches of float.
    Ofcourse Surly rims and tires make a great addition to the better Wildfire frame.

    You got a Pugsley how cool. I like the Pugsley, But the Wildfire looks mean! I did see a few Wildfire cycles out fitted with Surley tires.

    I got a good deal on one on Ebay. Now I just need some snow to test it out. Days with 40F highs and 30F lows with occasional rain showers make a mess of offroad trails and riding them causes too much damage to the trail (and too much mess to the bike). Now if we could just get some normal Janurary weather, 25-30F for a high and snow every few days I can give the Pugs a real trial.
    The Wildfire looks real cool but a frame cost as much as I paid for the complete bike.

    I got the same temps up here very weird for this time of year. Pray for some of that deep cold powder snow. My 294 Nokians will not cut it in the deep stuff on snowmoblie trails at 25 PSI. I want float.

    I know about the cost of the Wildfire. Man that hits the pocket book hard, but just a having custom made snow bike made in Alaska gives you some bling factor in the lower 48. (I know cheesy but what to hell) I just might get the Pugs because of all the great stuff I hear about them and the price.

    Please keep me updated on your thoughts about the Pugs.

    Thanks
