    sweet bike. the drilled out snowcats are a nice touch. So what's the verdict on the weight. Looks light.

    If we get some cold weather now the trails will firm up like concrete. Can't wait.

    perhaps indelicate...

    Would it be too carass to ask what your pugs weighs? - I am currently building one and curious how the Bonti fork and Snow cats affect that final number...

    I don't know the weight yet. One thing I do know, after building the Pugs, is horizonal drop outs suck, suck ,SUCK !

    I'm with ya on those pugsley drop outs. Its strange they look like a really good idea on paper but they are a little cumbersome in real life. There is a way to mount the caliper so that the wheel will slide in and out without any trouble. Its just a little goofy when you have to remove a geared rear wheel. The answer is don't get flats.

    I solved the Pug's rear caliber issue by using a 203mm disc on the back and a 160mm on the front. The large radius rear disc raises the caliber to not impede wheel removal. If I was starting over I would also grind the drop-out flanges down prior to repainting - this would be to make it easier to use a quick release lever on the rear.

    another winter bike weight

    29.5 or 30.5 pounds for the "Toothless Cousin". It depends on from which part of the seat I hang the bike on the digital fish scale. Killer traction on the trails right now!

    B!tchin' Camero. That thing turned out very nice.

    The horz drops do suck. However, with my Louise FR calipers and an Avid Wavy rotor, I can position the valley of one of the waves at the rear slot of the caliper and it actually gives me enough clearance to sneak the rear wheel out of the drops without messing with loosening the caliper. It is still an awkward operation, but suriveable. Hacksawing the lower end of the drops off would be the thing to do.

    That fork works nicely on that frame. I am amazed at the weight. My Pugs is built none too porky and is still a solid 36#. Good job.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    Pugs on Slim Fast

    Your Pugs makeover turned out great!

    You might have the lightest Pugs around. My buddy JayP built his up to 31 lbs using the stock Pugs fork but the Bonty fork is obviously lighter.

    Nice job!

    No, its clear Leo has them topped in the naming category,

    now it it were "The Vicious Thunderchicken", or "The Vicious Thunderbutt", then we'd be on to something

    If a ride with Queen Bee is in your future, be sure to get plenty of sleep and eat your "Wheaties". It's gonna' be a long day.
