New arrival that I probably won't be keeping but it sure is a blast to ride... 2001 Rocky Mountain Stratos.

Everything is original except the saddle and post.

Take a basic 2006 Pugsley with a 3 by 1 drive, add an Easton stem, Ritchey ergo bar, and Tektro linear pull levers to replace the risers and controls, and build a custom rear rack. :)

The tensioner is a Suntour XC Sport tri pulley and shifters are Suntour Accushift... right lever is there because I am building up a new wheel with a cassette so I can expand my gearing but for wet work that White Industries freehub in the rear is bombproof and the gearing range is not bad at all.

I'm pretty new to bikes in general and espcially building bikes so I didn't understand a word you said! haha I caught some of it. What kind of wheels are you running there, would you need to get extra thick rims to get tyres that fat? and I got it add race stem and bar, then pull levers though building a custom rack may be a bit out of my depth lol (i am only 15!) so I'll have to buy one. I prefer going single speed just for the sheer simplicity of it and I just wanted to ask. Do you have any suggestions for making it totally bombproof and strong as well as waterproof like you said? I'll check out white industries hubs btw :)

Pretty much primed and ready for the spring/summer.

Nice!

Start here:

http://surlybikes.com/bikes/pugsley

The Pugsley and it's many cousins are purpose built to run much wider rims and tyres that cannot be run in a standard frame... drop bars and their controls are my preferred set up on most bikes.

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!

http://oi26.tinypic.com/34q73uv.jpg
(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.

alexaschwanden 07-28-13 08:28 PM

I bought a new 2013 Scott Scale 970, also i did 50+ miles on it's maiden voyage. the hydraulic brakes are something to get use to.

.. and damn nice guns, they are! :thumb:

scrublover 08-13-13 01:41 PM

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.
