    New to me Pugsley!

    Even a fat bike can't make me good at technical mountain biking... Almost endo-ed before this downhill, ended up sideways instead.



    I'm guessing the Mississippi used to be a bit higher at this point and this bridge served a purpose but for now, it seems to be a random bridge linking a the foresty trail area to a big empty field...

    Greetings Adventurers!

    I'm unknown around here, but I assure you I have ridden countless miles on grades steeper than 2%!

    I present to you my Surly Moonlander! Just finished assembling it last night. It's all stock except the stem and bars. Having ridden plenty of non-fat bikes I can say for certain that just taking this thing around the yard and driveway has me 100% satisfied with my purchase (there's some tiny mole hills in my yard that didn't stand a chance against these tires!). I AM IN LOVE! And that whole thing about the fat bike permasmile? TRUE.



    Moonlander and Giant Reign X1 with 2.4" tires.




    I hope to take it on a 1200' vertical climb after work today. I'm curious to see how it handles coming down at 25+MPH on hardpack. Maybe I'm playing with fire, but IDGAF!

    Sure, why not?

    Last night I didn't get to the mountain, but I was able to squeeze in a 9 mile XC ride.

    Now before I continue, let me preface my spiel with this: I am not trying to "fanboy" this up. I've ridden literally hundreds of miles on these same XC trails. They're close to home and great for quick rides. Over the years I've ridden the following bikes there: '94 Giant Iguana (full-rigid), '98 GT Backwoods XC hard tail, '05 Kona Shred hard tail, '09 Giant Reign X1 FS (40+lb porker), and now the '12 Moonlander.

    The verdict? MOONLANDER WINS. Holy shatballs I was having SO MUCH FUN last night! And with a sinus infection and cough to boot! I cruised on the flats and bombed through loose gravel and chunky basalt like a boss. It climbs like a billy goat! None of the other bikes compare!

    I did experience some bounce while pedaling (PSI adjustments needed, but I lack the tool for that at the moment). I just dealt with it. I also nearly got bucked off in a steep rock garden. Too much rebound! lol

    EDIT: I uploaded some super exciting uncut video for you guys. It's a rear-view fork mounted angle. Mostly just an experiment that turned out halfway decent! Rotor noise BAH!

    Anyway, didn't get any action pictures, but here's some fat bike porn (very durty):

    First ride on a new to me Pugs! No action shots, as I was riding alone. But I had a huge grin on my face as I was rolling over roots, rocks, into mud and through the singletrack like I never have before. So happy with this purchase.

    My new pug came in today! I think I'm one of the very few, if only, guy riding a fatbike around downtown cincinnati. I got some weird looks from roadies, a couple complemented, and most just stared. This thing is so awesome. I can't wait to take it on some trails this weekend. Perma grin isn't a lie

    Greetings sir,

    It's a Gravity Light (FSA brand I think). They're more of a bright neon green in person. Perhaps radioactive. Scroll up and you'll see the matching bars on my Giant. I think they're limited edition. How limited? I do not know this.

    Yeah, those are it!

    I got 32" bars "special" ordered. I really don't think I'm that special, but it made me feel good for a few seconds.

    Got this in the mail yesterday. Thanks Pete!!
    Took it out for a sunrise ride. What a great bike. I thought it would handle like a truck, but it is pretty quick and took corner great. Cannot wait for this weekend if the rain holds off.

    Kickass!

    I too was expecting my Moonlander to handle like a truck. I was proven wrong. It rolls and steers without any trouble, IMO.

    However, I can see the benefit of a tire like the Nate or HuDu (or upcoming Bud and Lou) over a BFL. Cornering on the round and less knobby BFL was a bit sketchy for me. Normally I can lean hard on my 2.4" Maxxis Advantage tires and they hook up nicely, but the BFLs washed out too easily and too early for my comfort level. It's all good though. It's not a GD downhill bike anyway! .
