    Impressive! I like your plaid rim tape and the Police riff at the end just was the icing on the cake.

    Nicely done.

    Oh yeah.............nice bike too, by the way.

    If Newt gets elected, we might actually see a Moon Lander on the Moon.

    Frightening....

    What an amazing bike on soft sand!, so far so good, It is a bit more hard work riding on the road at same speed as a Pug and Mukluk, but its float on the sand is unreal, as is the steering rolling over the top of dunes, simply unreal

    Excellent work, coastkid! So the Scots went to the Moon after all, eh? Make sure to post exploration reports!

    Thanks for the Lego touch, too. Old-school space has always been and will always be my favourite

    By the way, how are you planning to choose between the pugsley and the moonlander?

    Lego space sells for a fortune now on ebay!, my mum dumped all our stuff a few months back! There is still loads of Technic stuff up in their loft,

    Choice will be mostly the Moonie for a bit then use both, esp the pug if riding any distance on road and trails,

    Superb Bikes ain't they!

    Looking at the pug, even with nates on, its like looking at downhill tires to a fatbike.....real life is huge difference!

    I would be keen to see a shot like that, but a BFL on 80mm rim, against a moonie wheel for comparison.

    Since getting my Mukluk a few weeks ago it has come as a surprise how much difference rim width can make - I was in between the Pug and the Moonlander yesterday. But having heard the latter on the road yesterday I don't think I'd want any wider for the riding I do...

    80mm rims will slow you down, not by much though, depends on tire pressures too.

    I have rode longer tarmac distances on my pug, like to the beach or even around town, and you get used to it more, but that's while running the tires at 10-20psi.....the moonlander stays at 5psi!

    I keep the moonlander rides around 3-15 miles, obviously mainly offload, just little 1-3 mile rides to where I'm going before playing/exploring for a few more miles.

    Hence my low mileage after 9 days use.
