    Considering that the Neck Romancer Pugs comes with a Moonlander fork on it, no, I don't think that it will work.

    Fork works fine with the frame, but you'll need a new, non-offset front wheel. It'd be better just to buy another offset Pugsley fork.

    Also what do you mean your fork is bent?

    They sell an off-set version of the Moonlander fork now as well, standard 135mm offset rims work fine.

    I have the non-offset moon lander for on my black pug with a daryl up front and a marge in the rear. You can run what ever rim you want in the moon lander fork, I got it simply because I loved the cage bolt options from my time using a Salsa Enabler fork on my 29'er.

    either moon lander fork works fine on a pug.

    The offset Moonlander fork is a different offset then the pugsley fork.

    I bought the bike used and the fork is bent a little just below the crown on both sides. The bike was jumped a little before me. I'll ride it like it is for now, I'm not hard on the bike so not really worried about it getting worse but I do plan to replace it with the stock fork when I can find one at a good price. Seems there was a recall for a problem but not the same thing as my fork.

    Just so no one else makes this mistake. The fork bend is by design. It matches a similar bend in the frame so the the wheels are interchangeable. Moonlander offset forks will have a similar but greater bend putting the hub 28mm offset to the right instead of 17.5mm so that is matches the Moonlander frame. Non-offset forks for either will be symmetric. All 3 require different wheel builds.
