    1 in NE Scotland - 907
    Moonlander & Pug in Aviemore (Backcountrybiking)

    Not too many of these North of Perth which is really surprising, given the terrain up here

    Bristol. I have a Pugsley...........

    Any idea on the date for the Fat weekend, I missed it last year as I was "racing" at SSUK.

    Ideally different weekends please as SSEC and SSW are both too far away for me to manage this year................

    Andy and Jane are sorting it out this year, Andy told me yesterday that they will start planning once they return from a race in Scandinavia in a couple of weeks time.

    If I was guessing (don't quote me) but I'd say it will be on a Fri/Sat/Sun sometime this summer and on the North Yorks coast

    I'm about to finish my build, currently in the south east, but returning to my roots down in devon permanently this summer.

    I'd be up for some group rides/weekend on some of those scottish beaches!

    Currently building a mukluk/enabler, which is having frame beadblasted today, so i can hand polish it, and the fork in black.

    xt 1x10, surly/salsa hubs, rolling darryls (self-drilled, happening soon), raceface cranks, hope x2 brakes. All components are black.

    Can't wait!

    Any riders of fatties down in the South West?

    theres more of us riding fatties thesedays so regular meets, maybe mini meets in different areas is the next step, especially with coastal areas but lets not forget woodlands etc.

    How long have you had your Mukluk for..? (Was thinking that I was the first person in Scotland to have one!)

    Would be interested in knowing where in Fife you are; although I live in Midlothian I work in Glenrothes and fancy exploring some Fife coast sometime.

    Still can't believe that once you head North of Perth, there only seems to be me, Velo & the guys from backcountry biking that have fattys.
    Going to be a very long time before I bump into anybody

    I've had it for 3weeks - bought as a frame and forks from Triton cycles and thrown together with a selection of bits. Its actually an '11 frame tho. I'm based near Dunfermline.

    Tons of fat bike potential around the fife coast. I've done Tentsmuir and Leven to Elie (last sunday I did wave coastrider!) so far - both excellent rides - miles of beach and some good rocky stuff too but there is a lot more with the coastal path offering an alternative or return route

    A couple of weeks ago I was pretty sure that I spotted fatbike tire treads up near Redlake, (in the heart of southern Dartmoor), and there was also a suspected fatbike tread reported a little further east on the 'moor within a few days of my sighting, so it certainly sounds like some kinda fattie was about down here recently. If we accept it was a fatbike, it's still unknown whether it's resident or migratory tho' ...

    Give it till a bit later in the year and there is every likelihood that there will be at least one more resident fatbike in the SW.

    Hi HT5rider

    I want to do a ride sometime along the coast at Carnoustie, preferably when the army are not out playing
    A friend was a Green keeper there and says there is a lot of WW2 defence stuff to see, the beaches look good on Google Earth

    Saw a SS white Pug at Llandegla mid week, the rider says it's never been ridden anywhere else and he pushes up the steep climbs.

    What a shame....

    I SS half fatted Llandegla on the same day and didn't push ;-)

    PS If any UK riders fancy a few beach miles in the North West early this Sunday morning I'll be around Crobsy/Southport as normal but looking for more dunes, just PM me for details

    Mantastic,i know whats coming next.. how much for it?
    I said it already, and keep saying it to folk - the Moonlander is an amazing bike, in the right conditions, and is at present the only bike to have proper chain/tyre clearance (20mm+) with 100mm rims and BFLs at present. I know you really want one , but it is not a replacement for a Pugsley or any other regular 3.7" tyre fatbike. It is a LOT of work on the road and not much fun on singletrack, but where it gets real soft and also on techy loose rocks it is amazing

    I know you really want one and folk find it strange me saying it is not a bike for 99% of folk interested in fatbikes but it is really a niche of niche!

    I will bring mine to the next UK fatbike meet and you can ride it up the road or trail

    talking of which... Chadwick!

    Must say I concur 100% with Bruce's comments here. I've come to the same (independent) conclusion when he's kindly let me have a shot of his on the rides we've shared. The Moonlander fulfils a very specific need. Überniche One day I will have one, since that specific need starts just a mile from my front door, but no way would the Pugsley leave my stable.

    @Bruce I have been reading loads about the moonie in recent months and it has crossed my mind (a Lot) about just buying one, there is space in the shed. (If I sell my Cannondale it would almost be free, well nearly) Saying that I totally understand the comments re singletrack etc, given your and Jasons experience of fatbikes and the moonlander I totally trust your judgement and comments. PS Keep up the good work with the films.

    I should be in the fortunate position (Aug) to have a wife that has finally finshed her PHD, only been 7 years in the making. This would give me the opportunity to be riding the beaches in north/Mid wales on a very regular basis.(every other weekend) This then would bring the possibility of using a moonlander for its intended purpose a reality. Harlec beach is only a 2 hour drive and having recently walked it looks a good stomping ground for moonlander activity. Infact having looked into the beaches in mid/north wales it seems I have a few 4mile+ expanses of beach to go play on within an easy drive.

    In regards to the pug, I am finding it is superb in the woods, I have really been playing around with the tyre pressures over the last few months. Infact the only advice I would give to future pug owners is buy a digital gauge and experiement. The difference 1 or 2 psi can make is quite incredible. This bike is most certainly a keeper and not going anywhere. Having taken the nates off, now running Larry upfront and endomorph its a whole new world in the spring and dry dusty singletrack

    Still undecided, see checklist

    wife happy with a new bike purchase Check
    Time on hands to ride beaches Nearly Check
    Space for another bike Check
    money for another bike sort of check


    PS Come On Chadders, throw us some dates. I have some malt waiting in my cupboard for all to try, not sure how long I can last with it not being opened

    i was after a cheap car to get around in, im having some serious personal problems recently that have since gotten worse.

    when i sit down and look at my life, i have to admit though, my passion for cycling is the one thing keeping me going at the moment.

    i guess letting go of my favourite bike to get a grubby car would make me worse......

    is there a fatbike meet soon? that would do me good if i can get to it that is.

    @sfbp - dont think that was me, unless I was in a world of my own and didnt notice you. Am sure I would of noticed a singular Peggy.

    Will let you know next time I am over that way

    @salty - good decison, once you sell a bike it always seem hellishly expensive to replace them..

    Although I've not got the money just yet, so when you do finally sell it you know where I am

    Soon to be many many more!!

    For some reason this thread has passed me by, until now!

    Two pugs in Fife near Cowdenbeath, but only one rider!

    I initially bought the second for my LSW* (VB should know who I mean!) after she showed interest in my Pug. She has lately shown little interest so I have two! But that got me thinking and after a previous posting on the forum regarding fatbike hire in the UK and wanting a career change I've decided to go for it and start a fatbike rental business. It's still early days but I've got a website and I'm slowely building up a hire fleet and sorting out interesting routes and trails. Lets be honest here, Scotland and indeed the whole of the UK is fast becoming the second home of fatbikes!

    Feel free to check me out at Fatbike Trails | Fatbike rentals and assisted trails in Scotland and say hi

    *LSW = Long Suffering Wife
