    No, he removes the stickers so you wont cry when he rides past you on the trail and you realize he only paid $225, while your pedaling $8k of depreciating expectations.

    Pugsley decal set is only $15, so you can have a Dologley or Pugsmite for $240.

    BTW, there is a video on YouTube of a guy removing stickers from the Dolo and it is very easy. Once removed they are done for...

    (I always remove the stickers from bikes, even before I grease the bearings and adjust the brakes. These I've left on. This probably won't last, but I can't bring myself to do it.)Seat post measures 10.5" below the seat clamp.
    Post is labelled 028. The diameter of the painted seat post measures between 28.35mm and 28.50mm, typically 28.45mm (to nearest .05).


    It looks like the post diameter is 28.6mm, the same as on the Beast. I have some 27.2mm seatposts that I will shim. Amazingly enough I found the exact shim size I need in my parts bin. No beer can will be harmed for this.

    Hopefully they don't up the price of the dolo anymore. I really don't think they can.

    Sold out in three days at original price. Raised price $75 and sold out again in a day. Boys, I think they struck a gusher.

    Looks like a lot of people were eager to get into fat biking at an affordable price point.
    I like bikes, and turtles. Well... mostly turtles. But bikes are cool also.

    My Mongoose Dolomite 26" - w/ fenders, 21-speed & front derailleur..

    The frame IS ALL STEEL - despite "aluminum/steel" in the description on the Walmart site.

    Below I've attached some photos of what I've done so far w/my 26" Mongoose Dolomite... These include:
    -added a 3-chain-ring crank. (now 21-speed. Cheap steel Next brand with 28-38-48 tooth rings.)
    - Added a front derailleur. (Fabricated from old stock 3-ring derailleurs - be sure not to use any with shorter "bails"(?) made for 2-ring cranks...)
    - Made & installed some fenders.
    - Added a bottle cage.
    - Added a clamp to hold a hand pump on the seat tube. (This needs to be a bigger, high-volume hand pump!)

    With this setup I have some chain rub on rear tire. Fender stays are made from 12-gauge galvanized wire (9-gauge wire would be stiffer).The fenders are fabricated from plastic landscape edging (6 inches originally w/the top & bottom removed for a 4 inch wide piece of flat stock...). Threading & routing the stays was a bit of a chore / conundrum - I only had to drill two small holes at each side on the rear of frame to fasten the wire stays w/small screws & nuts.

    Hey fellow Missoulian I think you can get some better cranks (from freecycles) that might stick out more and eliminate the chain rub issue. PM me if you need a hand.
    $299 is the (new) price on that contraption BTW, will probably go on "sale" for $249.95 when the next container arrives from China.

    I still have no idea how they can manufacture/ship a bike so large and heavy to your door so cheap... boggles my mind!

    Because fed ex or ups is giving them a great rate due to volume. Planes, trucks and trains have to move regardless if their full or not. Pretty sure the carrier would rather have them full.

    Don't remove the decals... you should be proud of what you have. Putting other bike decals on just screams "this is what I really wanted but I suck at saving money". Taking them off says "I'm embarrassed". And everyone will know what you really have under your legs. Be proud of what you have.

    Is there a double-standard? Other people get to say stupid comments but I can't? It's a valid point. Be proud of what you have and leave the decals on. Otherwise you just look ashamed.

    Those are simultaneously the most craptacular AND awesome fenders I have ever seen in my life- Absolutely brilliant idea. My grandfather, who believed that there was nothing in life that couldn't be fixed with bailing wire, would salute you. Ride the hell out of that thing!

    And that front derailleur is amazing.

    I stand in awe at your bodging stuff together skills. Seriously, amazing work.

    I doubt somebody in the market for this bike will spend $15 on stickers to make it something that it is not.

    If I got a Pugsley I would put Mongoose stickers on it so no one would steal it!

    I would definitely spend 15$ on stickers, I plan too when I get mine. Most likely going to get custom stickers made. I'm prolly going to drop around 200 into the bike, as well as drilling out the wheels.

    Nope.
    If you're willing to repeatedly remind people what you are, go for it.
