    Bearing in mind that I havent actually ridden my Pugs in snow you may want to take this with a pinch of salt . My impression from reading on here is that the Endo is pretty good in snow. All of my fat riding has been in mud or on dirt and I found that the Endo washed out too easily some put a Nate up front and immediately felt more confident. Just got a good deal on a Hüsker Dü which I'll fit on the rear when it arrives (and I move house and get my Pugs from storage!)
    If you need me I'll be at the bar

    Congrats on the Pug!
    I say ride the Endo. Great tire in sand and snow, good in the dirt unless you're really fast or ride a lot of off camber trails.

    Enjoy the new Pugs. You can replace that Endo with:

    - a second Larry
    - Husker Du
    - Nate

    In order of traction in snow. There is also a studded Husker Du coming out if you see a lot of ice.

    Send me your Endo. I'll make sure it gets used up!....
    Safe riding,

    depends on your weight.

    I am a petite female, so to get a decent tread footprint, I need a flatter tread pattern side to side like the endo. Rounded profiles make me ride at such a low psi to utilize them, they feel flat and turn horrible.
    The endo might surprise you, so don't count it out yet.

    If you want to try a second larry for the back, I have a takeoff with less than 75 miles on it I could make you a deal on. I swapped my front for another endo.

    HEY....
    did you sneak into my garage and take a pic of mine, lol!
    I have a 16 necro pugs too!

    are you gonna leave the fork spacers or cut the fork tube? I can't decide yet which one I plan on ending up doing.
