    Wow - that looks amazing! Out of curiosity: what size is your wife's bike? I'm a bit vertically challenged (5'4" w/ 29 1/2" inseam) and am wondering if there is any way a Moonlander would fit. We have a local dealer, but he does not keep any in stock to try out. I have been on the Surly site a few times but the #'s seemed to point the bike would be too big.

    They are great at keeping the wet spray off. Since they are pretty thin plastic, a sticky heavy mud will probably cause problems.
    That sticky mud you're talking about is no problem at all- it all sticks to your tires so the fender clearance is never an issue. Traction, however, is.

    New for 2013

    Ended up buying a complete just to have extra parts around. So far added the Formula brakes, Thomson stem, and Salsa pro moto bars. Will change out cassette and derailleur in due time. Bud and Lou are tubeless. I'm 165lbs and think that about 5psi is great for the conditions I'm riding right now. Enjoy!

    We had to build ours up from frame sets because full bikes were not available. So in the process we had some fun with colors. Here is the blue bike

    Hey all. Got a Moonlander about 2 months ago. We had a blizzard in Madison two weeks ago, and I am lovin it!. No exciting changes to the stock bike yet, but those will come. I am too busy enjoying riding this thing to want to make any changes! Found an aluminum channel that is wide enough to accommodate the tires for a roof rack without any problems, with the old school Yakima Raptor frame holding part. These aluminum channels can be purchased through any local metal dealer, as they are reasonable available I guess. Easily drilled too. Straps added later for holding things down, of course.

    1st Gen. Moonlander blinged out with pink anodized parts from Purely Custom. Also a Thompson seat post, Ritchey saddle and Bontrager Evoke grips.
    20 tooth granny & 36 tooth cassette for slower than walking speed technical crawling. (I've got a muscle disease that makes walking difficult, so the longer I can stay on the bike the better.)

    If one were to run Rolling Darryls, I think some other frame would be a better choice to begin with.

    Do you have a specific reason to go for RD instead of CS?

    Rolling Darryls have a spoke offset of 12.5 mm, Clown Shoe spoke beds are 20 mm offset. With an XT rear hub and Clown Shoe, the spokes are symmetrical when built 28 mm offset. With a Rolling Darryl you'll be looking at 100% tension on the left side and only 47% on the drive side because of the reduced spoke bed offset. You might want to look into building the wheel with different spokes on either side, possibly half-radial.

    I've posted this pic before, just not on this thread.It has become my everyday run around go to road bicycle. I'd like to have it powdercoated and throw drop bars on it & probably will eventually. I had my cross check powder coated not too long ago at a reasonable cost. I like the white pugsleys and it would match my truck.

    Saul - What would half radial spokes add to the 20mm offset Darryl for a Moonlander?

    Rgurney, I'm not sure I understand the question. The Moonlander rear hub is 28 mm offset, and the Rolling Darryl spoke bed offset is 12.5 mm. Different spoke thickness and/or half-radial lacing can be used to even the tension on the left and right side.

    Of course the smart choice is to use Clown Shoes with a 20 mm spoke bed offset with the Moonlander, because they were designed to work together and spoke tension will be even on both sides without sorcery.

    Or if you really must use 82 mm rims, pick a different frame.

    Saul - Thanks for your comments. I've built some wheels, but only with the same uniform thickness of spokes, in a 3 cross pattern. I'm not familiar with using a half radial pattern to increase strength. I'll look into that. Thanks.

    Here's a good piece of text on the subject: Wheelbuilding
    Look under "Half-radial Spoking". You're welcome!

    Yes and no. I didn't consider the cages and pedals to be part of the question, although they aren't stock. I threw on a better cassette, because I had it, and the spoke protector had to go. And my bike shipped without one of the headset bearings, so one of them isn't stock.
