    Clown Shoe - who has them in stock?

    So I missed last silver one at tree fort bikes and black at universal.
    Jenson has no firm ETA
    Who has them in stock (any color) and ships to Canada?

    Have you tried an LBS? The Canadian distributor might have some of their own stock.

    I just want to finish mine badly. One for missus is ready and it is oh so much fun! But can't get it down and dirty - if I put a single scratch on it I'll end up in dog house for sure.

    Maybe you'll have to "settle" for a pair of those gold ones Surly announced last week.

    I don't care for color - already got front in black so whatever rear I can get fastest I'll take it.

    Thank you everyone - got couple of PMs and couple of leads so I have options now.
    Will ask my LBS again today - they will be building the wheel so if it is two weeks then makes sense to buy from them.

    If you were just missing the front wheel I have symmetrically laced Rolling Darryl that I could lend you.

    Thank you very much! I got front wheel already, need rim to build the rear.
    Heading to LBS in a minute - if they can get me the rim and build it in 2 weeks or so I'll go for it. In the meantime - I think I can do half fat bike. My 2nd monkey has same headset so I can put moonie fork on it and front wheel i have.

    The story told me by the LBS is that NRG got two containers of Surly fat bike stuff. Both containers have landed in Vancouver. Container one has the Pugsley bikes and parts. It has cleared customs and is heading to Nelson (best place on Earth! ) to be distributed. Container two has Moonlander bikes and parts. As of Monday it had not yet been inspected by CBS so they are estimating 2 weeks until the Moonlander gear drops.

    gecho - thanks for the offer, but I've got my currently Pugsley still rolling. I'm moving up to the Moonlander after NRG warrantied my Pugsley for the infamous seat stay, seat tube junction cracks. Pretty good of them I must say, I just have to pay the difference in frameset costs, so like $100. Getting two Clownshoes and a Bud/Lou from them too. Selling my Pugs wheels to a friend, 120tpi "ultra light" Nates are going to Pedro. Praying for a massive dump of snow this winter to make the Moonlander worthwhile! Last winter was awesome! I'm looking forward to seeing if the Moonlander will keep me on top of some of the ski trails (shhh, don't tell!), snowmobile trails, and just general semi packed stuff I was punching through last winter. I'll miss my Pugs though, love that bike. Sometimes I think of getting another one, or doing a 1/2 fat 1X1 with Rabbit Holes and Dirt Wizards for when the trails are packed tight and I want to go fast.

    Got my Clownshoes from my LBS today. So in stock in Canada. MSRP $240 a piece, less if you're buddies with a shop owner.

    After talking with couple of lbs and taking into consideration wheel build labor, wheelbuilder with experience in fatbike wheels build, etc, etc - I went with Derrick who was recommended by bdundee (thank you!). Derrick should be getting my hub on Tue and will start wheel build right after. Will post when done.
    After talking to him I had a good feeling and he was awesome so far.
