    I don't understand the post title or what you mean. I like the blue pugs this year though.

    Yeah, I'm confused by the title too.
    Nice blue though!

    Nice! 9.5 feet, sounds like you are building a monster for sure.

    Looking forward to see just what you do create.

    I doubt that's what's going on here, but I would love it. I would really like to make a fat recumbent myself, for when my back finally gives up on upright riding.

    You're affixing either a Specialized or a Fuji frame with a Pugsley frame?

    I've been wondering when someone was going to add some S&S couplers to a Pugsley. Although, is that what you're doing? Doesn't look like quite enough room left on the tail side to braze them on...

    When I first saw it, I thought S&S but when I looked closer I ruled that out because he cut the down tube straight down, if he was doing S&S I believe he would have cut the tube straight across.

    Hmm, didn't think KHS. I took a shot at Specialized or Fuji based on the J&B cycles sticker on the frame.

    My Dr Frankenstein pugsley build "this will upset some"-imag0199.jpg

    still waiting on my Nova order
    this is what I will be using off the donor bikes
    was hoping to use the seat tube but couldn't bring myself to use a small 26mm seat post for the captain
    I had to scrap the whole front because the head tube needed to go up 3 inches
    a 14.5 inch bottom bracket height would have been silly

    Have you rotated the stoker seat tube back? (less BB drop?) Seems more slack than stock and obviously more so than the captain.
