    I heard mention of a soft tail. Kind of the Surly mindset approach to FS, to counter Salsa's more tech heavy offering.

    Can't recall who said it, but there was a screen shot of a CAD drawing as well.....

    I also had a customer tell me they were at another shop and heard mention of a fatter tire for 2013, so who knows....

    Surly doesn't tell me squat.
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    Meh, it will be 5 or 6 years before they get their act together for what ever they are planning.

    WTF, people are still waiting for moonlanders.

    that's all the "they say it can't be done" I can think of in one bike that's still a rigid. (as per Surly's MO)
    ^Something like that would be excellent...maybe with some geo tweaks too.

    ...and with 'Big Feral Nates', on the mythical bike you envision--that we might describe as having Boar/'Pigsley'-like capacities, haha.

    OK, in keeping with the mythical beast thing, how about fat tires around 29" hoops. 29 x 4.0.
    so 3 creatures: Troll, Ogre, and this new thing. New rims and tires?

    Would a fattie with 29x 4 rims not be a niche for giants?

    That looks to possibly be a bike path on the right of that photo--does anyone recognize it? Someone should go out there to do some tire track analysis!?

    I'm not convinced its got wheelie-geometry...the rider may just be struggling to get the rear wheel off the ground for a bunny hop--likely due to the high weight of this mythical IGH,

    Either that grass is really tall or that rear wheel has like 2 psi in it.

    No, it's just "eating the trail alive".

    My guess: A 29er race fatty. Like a KM with room for a 29" Nate on a 65mm 29" Marge Lite. 170mm hub only. Dark blue.

    Wouldn't this effectively turn it into a 32" with the increased outside diameter? Like our 26x4 = 29" now?

    As much as I would want anything new that Surly puts out, I can honestly say that I do not want to see another fatty from Surly. Only because I already want a Moonlander and have only had my Pugsley for about 2 years now. My lottery list would include each bike that Surly puts out. They may not be the greatest or most popular brand out there but man do they bikes that are fun to ride. Salsa as well! I literally take my Pugs everywhere and rarely touch the other 2 I have.

    Looks like it has a banana seat and a sissy bar. Big fat Sting-ray?

    It won't be a 29er - that is too old hat already.

    I'm thinking 650C.....

    I just sold some more stuff today for the bike fund. It's a good time to have money parked on the sidelines.
