    Pugsley vs mukluk

    I was at the bikeshop yesterday and they had a mukluk 3 and a pugsley. The pugsley is a 2014 so they had it marked down about $300 less than the mukluk. I rode both, I noticed a little difference between them but not that much riding around the neighborhood. The mukluk was a bit lighter but neither was light. I think I am going to pick up the pugsley because it's $300 less, but I just wanted to see if there is something I am missing. Other than the obvious aluminum vs steel and geometry differences. The components seem to spec out pretty close.

    Thanks for the help.

    I just picked up a used FB4 knowing that its 135 F&R spacing make it yestertech...it has good parts and is a good entry into fat biking....you are buying new, both of those bikes are nice, look at the componets and decide what you like the most.
    The bike is never to heavy, you are just to WEAK!

    I loved the geometry of the Muk over the Pugs, but it's all personal preference. I felt I could move around on it better.

    It is hard to go wrong with a Pugs as your first fat bike (or 3rd and 5th in my case). I owned a Muk and liked it, but I like the Pugs as an all-year bike better.

    Nothing wrong with either bike. My friends love their Mukluks. I love my Pugsley. I really like that it uses off the shelf 135 hubs. Makes piecing wheelsets together much easier! Almost 3 years now and I still love it! (full disclosure: I did order a Bucksaw!)

    Thanks, I picked up the pug. I love it I've been riding unimproved trails on it all day and I am having a blast. This thing is a ton of fun
