    Seems directly opposite of their philosophy to design/produce a FS anything.

    And that's why I like them.

    he is correct. that is not a full suspension. no pivots, no shock.
    looks like new dropouts though.
    think dirtydoug's right, fat troll
    makes sense since more peeps are using fatbikes for epic adventures than originally expected (which was that they'd be snowbikes only basically!)

    Actual question here. Isn't a fat Troll just a Puglsey with more bottle braze-ons? what else would set it apart? I'm thinking that, with the Moonlander now on the market, the Pugs is due for an update, so what would that actually entail?

    doesn't even look like a fat frame to me, those look like overhead shots of the chain and seat stays..

    I think Surly is going, "why be beat" by Salsa?
    This is a Pugs not some carbon wannabee pretzel wagon!!

    How many times does Surly have to write "This is not full suspension" in their post before anyone notices? They are not going to pee on your shoe and tell you it's raining.

    Huh, I read that post and figured they just didn't want to bother with people freaking out and speculating on forums like MTBR. So what do people do....freak out and speculate on forums like MTBR. I think the existence of this thread is funny, and I bet they do to.

    If it's what I'm thinking it is, the folks in Lincoln saw a proto rolling around, so we should all just stay quiet... It's not our news to break.
