    Finally, another Dutch Pug !!

    It all started little under a year ago with me stumbling upon some pics and films of Pugsley's on the net (guess who's ?), and i immediately knew i wanted one !
    Then i had some financial luck, and immediately started to order the bulk of the goods to build one.
    My first plan was to build one with a 11spd Alfine that was not available yet.
    And while i was waiting on that, i was offered a Rohloff for a good price.
    Which is now being fully serviced before it goes on the bike.
    Shortly after that i found a brandspanking new SC32, only i had some trouble getting the hub form a UK shop. (thanks Canoe for helping me out with this !! )
    After taking so much time that others have even fabricated babies...
    Today i finally got to take a ride on mine !

    The temporary set up for now consists of the following parts :

    22" Pugs
    47mm Trialtech rim laced to a 24/7 hub and SC32 up in the front.
    Large Marge laced to a Hope Pro2 SS hub in the rear and stopped with Magura HS-33's
    CK headset
    Da Bomb stem.
    Da Bomb saddle. (The Lepper saddle is still on my Cannondale so it can shape itself to my ass a bit more)
    Brave Stiffee handlebars.
    Brave Serial Killah cranks.
    DK Iron cross pedals.
    Gusset bachelor chain tensioner.

    First part of the ride was awesome, i wanted to run over everything in my path...
    The second part at the beach wasn't that good due to the wrong gearing.
    So back to the road it was for a bit more of fun.

    When the build of the bike will enter it's final stage i will post more pics.

    Well done Rabies! Welcome to the club!
    Great you were able to testdrive it! But no fun on the beach....mmmm....hope better gearing helps, as for me sand, snow and mud are most fun to drive with the Pug.
    My legs are still too weak to cycle much, definitely no Pug for me yet, but I'll work on that, so you can finalize the last bits& pieces!
    Enjoy the wonderful world of fatbik-ing ;-)

    ^^What he said.^^

    As soon as the wheel With the Rohllof hub is finished, i will be swapping forks to see how the original rigid one rides and feels.
    Also it will be nice to have 2 brakes as well, becasue i still have to make up my mind on what discbrake i will be putting on the SC-32.

    Rabies, was zelf blij verrast hoe goed de mechanische BB7 werken (180mm schijf, dat wel).
    Maakt allemaal niet zo uit, alles werkt uiteindelijk wel

    Thanks Guitar Ted,

    I will look it up, have you had any experience with this fork on a fatbike?

    Two years ago the USFS had my two favorite fire roads "graded", and they also dug fairly deep ditches across the road surface, mostly at an angle, with the associated entry and exit berms.

    I mark these spots with surveyor's tape before the snow, but I still get a few surprises with my FS bike.

    I hope one of these will help.

    Judging by the inverted design, these must have been developed specifically for the fatbikes and to minimize un-sprung weight, correct?

    Are there others? I looked into the 29 r offerings, but had not heard about the SC32.

    Thanks

    @ BPT : Thanks !

    @ constantijn.
    I have to say that i prefer hydraulic brakes over mechanical ones, and i am thinking of
    Magura Marta's or somthing like that.

    @PG.
    If you use the search function of the forum and look for Maverick SC-23 or DUC-32 you will find a metric ton of info on them.
    And they are not build for fatbikes, but they just happen to have the clearance needed for the tires.

    Maverick SC-32's I have not ridden, but a good friend got one to put on a fat bike. I mentioned the torsional flex I had heard about regarding the SC-32, so he clamped a fat bike front wheel in one, and we bench tested it. I will say that it is easy to twist this fork. I have heard reports that it does manifest itself as flexy on trails as well, due to the bigger contact patch/more grip of a fat bike tire. On snow? Maybe this will not be an issue, but for someone your size/ maybe it would be.

    After viewing what I saw first hand, I would not want to try a Maverick fork myself.

    ...you'll need to add another to his total then.

    Apart from being awakened to the existance of these bikes back in 2006 by Singletrack Magazine in the UK, CK and Wards videos finaly persuaded me to buy.

    Have i regreted it ....no.

    Enjoy your bike Rabies.

    Those are Magura HS-33's with ol HS-11 mounts with "elbow's" on the inside of the seatstay to keep them from spreading outwards.
    My definitive set-up will have custom made brake boosters on them.
    And for the front i am thinking of Magura Marta's of maybe hope M4's.

    Maybe fatbike's and movies about or with them should have a warning before they start...?

    I had no idea that a hydraulic rim brake even existed.

    They have been around for a while now.
    And they are probably the best rim brakes out there....

    Thanks, and i am more or less counting the days, and hoping that it will stay dry that day....

    Last weekend i got some surprisingly good news about the Rohloff hub.
    It seems that mine got lost in the mail after being serviced by the Rohloff company.
    Wait a minute, is that good news ? i can hear you think...
    No, it's not
    But the good news is that i will be getting a brandnew one !!
    So i am hoping that it will be on the bike before the 12th.
