    Thanks.
    Yes, a real and definitive Offset.

    Buy a steel frame, it can be repair...
    an alloy frame failed as well.

    lot of rain, unlucky day, Voodoo spell, no free parkmeter.

    it was a lucky day to me, i wasn't riding on at this moment.
    But 2 hours before, it could be a Mixture of pulpit and Cro-mo 4130 "snatch"...

    Mr Whirly crank set desagree wit massiv attack too, and giv'up the fight.
    a crank arm broken, spider and stainless ring forever twisted...

    Jeez. What are the odds? You should go play some sort of lottery. And stay indoors if there's lightning.

    Wonder if they'd do a crash replacement. How often can you say God smote my bike?

    In the same time, Someone bring back my GT stolen one year ago and Cops do the rest...

    Pugsley was a second hand deal, with no bill, and no insurrance anyway.
    I keep the frame but don't hope.

    only in my Holy star.
    rear wheel is a few twist, but i 'll perhaps change the hub (135 > 170mm) so no work on it now.

    Just take a decision for the futur fat frame.

    almost 36 firm all arounds the world.
    thanks fatbikes.com for the listing.
    thanks for the mtbr fotum for the outseiders. ( "triton bikes" miss from fatbikes )

    We prepare another bike, not far the place.

    In the AM, yes we heard a heavy noise, like a three falling;

    but, we didn't react.

    it was raining, we stay protected in the house to up grade a sunnXircuit '98.

    It's my bros, who gone bring back grease, when he pass front of Pug's, he just say: "You won't believe it... it's like a bad joke..."

    The big noise, the place i park my spad, ****, it's a bad trip.

    580(frame)+250 (Mr Whirly) scratch by a rock in 1 seconde.

    i'm not a liar, it happen, that's all folks.
    Any bike is nothing VS a rock like this.
    if it had been a titanium frame, results had been the same.

    I pay this one 900 shipment included, and broke my car a week later.
    Sometimes, we must still sleeping because the day is coming is full of bad surprise.

    I'm in luck, my wife stay with me;
    just i look for another fat frame, more symetric...

    do you have good deal ?

    -Carver? 1300 USD, instantany delay VAT out
    -616fab? 1700 USD, 2 weeks delay VAT out
    -Triton? 1200, 4-6month delay, VAT out
    -Rapid-titan? 700, 75 day delay, VAT out
    -Murucycles? 1400, VAT out, delay?
    -Curve enginering? 1400, VAT in 7week delay...

    i'm a few lost.

    Im lost, you break a Pug and need to replace yet a Mukluk is too heavy ? Do you want a Ti to replace, going on your list above ? An off the shelf 9:zero:7 is in the Ti ballpark at 1720g'ish.

    No stress.
    if a rock wasn't appear, i stll riding on my Pug.
    13.5kgs with marge light and SS.

    i compare since 3week, and brainstorm a lot, too much
    alloy frame = no way to me, too stiff

    i look steel or titanium frame to replace my surly, lighter is better.
    i keep marge light rims, but except 9;zero:9, all the rest of frame are in 170mm rear hub, si i 'll replace surly hub by another 170mm (Salsa, Hope, 616fab but centerlock...)

    i look a crankset too, the hive e thirteen is coolest i had seen, or race face 100mm are great.
    my price for a rep^lceant frame is max 1400, so 9;zero:9 and twentycycle= very beautifull frame but too expensive to me.
