    But was more fun (and less work) than other bikes.

    after 4 months...

    (at least)... I was able to take La Pugsdozer for a ride!
    nothing fancy or extreme...just a couple of kms on the river bed of Santa Catarina's River...(the one that was flooded two years ago)

    The best part was to find a lost member of the family!

    The Beetle...dozer?



    was it great to be back?...ohh yeah!

    The new Fatback!!!

    My first fatbike.

    Haven't been able to ride it yet due to an accident that left me slightly broken, but here it is, teasing me. Good newz is that it's all done, bad news is, I am still 2 weeks away from healing enough to ride it. Arghh!!

    Pretty stock build, with an XT cassette, pedals and chain, and Gore cables throughout.

    32.5 lbs even as you see it.

    The mighty iron atom....

    On monday i went to Brussel (Belgium) to see a Primus concert, and i though it would be a nice idea to take the Pugs with me on the train and see a bit more of Brussel.
    When i arived at my hotel i found there was no safe place to store my bike or something big and solid to secure it to.
    So the bike had no other place to stay than in the comforts of the hotel room.
    One of the things i went to see was the Atomium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    But it was to crowded with large groups of tourists that, so i only took only 3 or 4 shots of it.
    Rode around a bit more until i realised that i needed to eat as i had skipped breakfast and only had a mars bar.
    I got some food and found a nice place to sit along the canal.

    It was a nice place with lot's of interesting things to see.
    Since i am Dutch, and the Netherlands is a flat country, i am not used to climbing as much as in Brussel.
    That was something i knew already, but had to experience it the hard way.
    (But what goes up, must come down.... FAST !! )
    So this was hard with the Pugs, but with the realy bad road and sidewalk conditions i encountered at some points in the city, it was a blessing to ride on it as well.

    yeah, it's a mukluk, I had the paint stripped at the powdercoaters, they did the fork black too. They also bead blasted the frame, which gets rid of all the paint, but leaves a very 'matte' finish, it needs a lot of sanding to finish it off well.
