    You still waiting for your hub? Looking forward to seeing what it will look like with the new fork.

    I took a small detour on the way home. Fun riding, but horrible light for photography.



    The deal with the bash ring is explained here.

    Like the colors Duggus! Have you seen the new yellow frame sticker set yet? Might be a fun addition.

    Keyhaven salt marshes, Isle of Wight and the Needles in the far background.

    For anyone wondering about sizing, I am 5'10" and the medium 18" Moonlander fits me very well. On One Mary Bars, Brooks saddle, and Ergon grips, she's the most comfortable well balanced bike I have ever had. Crud Catcher 29er guards and A530 pedals she weighs 36 lbs, and I love this bike.

    Cool-blue Rhythm 2012 Moonlander XL

    Show off your Moonlanders-bournda_moonlanders-20-large.jpg
    XT front and rear brakes with 200mm discs (Brilliant)
    Hope Pro hubs front and rear (could not get standard hubs to adjust properly and rear freewheel collapsed twice)
    20/36 front Mr Whirly's (cannot buy just the 20t have to purchase the pair)
    XT shifters front and rear (mini shifters bite)
    1.5" riser handlebar (better geometry for my big frame)
    Lou and Bud rubber (Brilliant)
    Jet Black flat pedals & Jet black grips (std cheap grips would never stay put despite being wired on)
    Bit of red bling (Red rim tape, salsa quick release seat clamp and the red hope hubs)
    Brooks seat coming and I can finally say I am happy with it. Best bike I have ever owned bar none.

    2013 Mini Moonie - 16"

    Show off your Moonlanders-minimoonie.jpg
    Still pretty new, hence not much new on this one as yet:
    Jet Black blue flat pedals,
    Jet black blue handgrips
    Salsa blue seat clamp
    20/33 Mr whirly on front
    Will replace the hubs (freewheel looking dubious after 4 rides only) with Hopes. Needs the blue rim tape too thats on order
    Likewise for mini shifters and brakes (BB7s are so poor in my opinion and even after "bedding in" fail to pull the bike up in any hurry).

    In case your wondering about weights - I hung them both on the scales yesterday:
    Mini moonie weighted a smidge over 17kg (37pounds)

    While my XL (22") frame (including rear bag, lights and mud) was about 17.5kg (38pounds):

    How do you like the Jones Loop on your Moonlander? Did you feel the need to go with a longer stem (or a larger frame than normal?) in order to obtain the right reach?

    Cooool. I have mine setup with a Jones truss fork too.

    Curious to hear about your impressions with this setup.

    I removed the 36 outer and kept the 22. I have a 12-36 rear and it's more than low enough.
    I could easily have kept the 12-34. MRP chain keeper. Tubeless next

    Real happy with the front end now for rock riding on the coast, it is not that noticeable untill you up the pace a bit across loose pebbles and the ride is real smooth

    In case you're interested in another take, mine has 26t front and 11-34 in the back. Quite the perfect range for me as the high gearing is fast enough, yet the low gears allow crawling. I had a 22t chainring first, but I was using the high end of the cassette too much, spent a lot of time on the small 11t sprocket and generally felt like it was just too little. I could go for a 24t but rather not back to a 22t.

    Aren't the granny rings special on the MWOD? Where did you get the 26.
    However, for the type of terrain and hills I climb the 22 front and 12-36 is perfect gear range.
    I would like to put a mid cage shadow derailleur on at some point to quicken the shifting.

    After the fire they have flown over and dropped straw over the entire burned area in hopes of keeping the dirt on the mountain.

    My preference on my Moonlander is 20/34 in front and a 11-34 in back. I'd be happier with a 36 in back. I rarely use the 34 ring in front. I have found that with Bud and Lou and 5 psi, I can ride over and through almost anything, the lower the gear, the better the crawling.

    Where'd your snow go alphazz?

    You can use any 58 BCD chainring if you have a single chainring.

    The 26t is a Surly steel MWOD chainring I bought at my LBS. It has ten evenly spaced holes with 58 BCD, so you use five (small) holes to mount it to the crank and the other five to attach an outboard chainring, or in my case a DIY bash guard. Pictures for clarification here: DIY: Bash ring for Surly MWOD (58 BCD / 26 t)

    EDIT: The outboard chainring or bash guard is mounted through four out of five holes. The fifth hole is naturally blocked by the crank.

    i bet your moonlander doesn't have X0 cranks.

    just popped these on today, still have to test ride them. the rest of my build info is in the bike specs with pics thread. recent changes include a 60mm stem, E*13 Guide Ring, toupe saddle, and BG Ergo XL grips. its tubeless now, and the brake cables are cut.

    Hello, I need the help of experienced riders.
    In November I was looking for another hobby I could do 3-4 times a week and decided on cycling. Iím on the east coast, Florida, and live on the beach. I plan on building up to 25 mile rides. House to work is 25 miles with 24 of them on the beach and Iíd like to do that run once or twice a week as soon as I have the stamina and speed to do it in a reasonable amount of time. Otherwise Iíll be riding 75% beach and 25% trails. Nothing rocky and Florida is flat. I ordered a Surly Krampus complete from my LBS and have been waiting impatiently ever since. I am so amped about cycling I canít wait any longer and would like to order a second bike I can start enjoying now. This is where I could use your advice. From what Iíve read the surly Moonlander works great in soft sand. With the goals stated above what bike would you recommend? $3000 is my budget for the second bike. I appreciate any input. Thanks, Saint

    What this thread needs are some pictures of a Moonlander being used as it was designed to be used. From today's ride, April 25.

    Re: Show off your Moonlanders

    I think it goes without saying it was incredible! I had test rode a Pugsley on the beach and found there was not enough flotation for my body size. The moonlander did great and the tire size increase was immediately confirmed!

    Here is my new Moonie in pick-a-nick mode. Ha ha!


    Kind of a steam punk vibe.


    Is it really [that much] uglier than a derailleur?


    That much uglier and more... That cable box is just so fugly. When I gaze adoringly at the bike I sort of skip over that particular area. Ha ha!


    Clean machine on this side, if you don't mind the Soviet era dynohub esthetic. I think I like it, 7th feeling like running mice through a coffee grinder withstanding. And steel is real.


    On the OV Porteur rack I rigged up a Container Store fabric storage cube with straps. There is a wire frame in the bag that folds flat if you want. That's a buzzard feather.


    A rivbikes seat bag that's seen commuter duty on a variety of bikes.


    The bottom of the bag follows the curve of of the tire pretty well.


    That stand-off is a Carradice leather strap run through a piece of feral bamboo I harvested on a ride. Works well to stop the bag from swaying and bumping your legs.

    The Surly Packmulander is the ultimate adventure bike, in my somewhat experienced opinion.

    Did a little bikepack/tour trip 33 miles up the North Fork of the Coeur d'Alene river just last weekend (same 33 coming back). Mostly pavement, a little dirt. The ML makes it all more fun and almost too easy! Averaged 15MPH on the way out, 16MPH coming back - with all the gear below.

    The Gear List

    On the front rack:
    • Two man tent (poles are strapped under the down tube)
    • Alite chair
    • Toob
    • Leatherman
    • Pump
    • Keens
    • 100oz of water
    • 6-pack of Coors (added half-way through the outbound ride)

    In the frame bag:
    • Glad container packed with chewy chips ahoys
    • 16oz Gatorade
    • Starbucks doubleshot energy in a can
    • Dehydrated dinner and breakfast
    • Cooking essentials
    • Toiletries
    • 22oz No-Li IPA

    In the viscacha seat bag:
    • Down sleeping bag
    • Inflatable pad
    • Inflatable pillow
    • Clothes for one night

    In the gas tank:
    • More chewy chips ahoys!
    • Beef jerky
    • Endurolytes

    In the Jerrycan:
    • Camera
    • Patches
    • Matches

    Elsewhere:
    • Another 16oz Gatorade
    • Alien tool
    • Tent poles
    • Front and rear lights
    • Phone
    • Bike puter
    • Contour cam

    ...and no backpack!

    One valuable lesson learned on this trip:
    NEVER SHARE A TWO MAN TENT WITH A PALEO DIETER WHO HAD DEHYDRATED CHILI MAC FOR DINNER.

    Ready to roll fatties!

    SupremeDork, how have the videos turned out while filmed from your rack and what mount are you using for your Contour? I have one and have considered trying it on my rack as well, but wondered if it would be to washy.

    I guess it just depends on what kind of perspective you want. I put mine up front to get it out of the way for the ride. I've gotten handlebar footage in the past and was not happy with it. I like having a fixed point in the frame. I suppose if you want that "car chase" perspective, it'll work for that. I've also attached the camera to the fender mounts at axle-level. That's a cool perspective. You get the bike in half the frame as well as the scenery zipping by. Here's some footage of that I made last Summer: Moonlander XC Rear View Radness - YouTube

    I'm impressed. It is a fairly flat trip but averaging 15 and 16 for 33 miles each way on a Moonlander loaded for camping is pretty good. I hope you're trying to get on a world pro team because you have the legs for it.

    Ha! I wish! Your compliment is appreciated Once those 30PSI BFLs get rolling I cruise right along with the skinnies.

    Indeed, mostly flat. A couple months ago I hauled maybe 1/2 the gear for a 30 mile round trip on blacktop with about 1200' of climbing (5-10% grade) on the way home. I had to take it slow, but I wouldn't say it was difficult.

    Back to a Lefty on my ML. This time a Max with the PBR setup by Mendon. I wanted a little more Axle-to-Crown than my old DLR gave me. Glad to have the Lefty again, and it's the first time I've had a lefty with the Bud/Lou combo. Lovin' it!

    Final touches on Moonie

    Put the final touches on the Moonie! Carradice cotton canvas rear rack bag on the OMM with chopped mounts to lower the rack.

    Pass and Stowe rack, Big O Manufacturing prototype fenders, Inside Line Equipment cotton canvas porteur rack bag.


    The orange spindle coming off the P&S is my purposefully cheesy light mount.


    I thought some of the details on this ILE bag were odd, but the more I use it, the more I like it. Easy access, quick secure mounting, rides tight to the rack. Notice the depressed lock button on the brake levers.


    A better look at the Carradice bag. I love cotton canvas. So much so that, when I'm not going commando, I wear boxers custom made from old Carradice Nelson Longflap saddle bags. Makes me feel like I'm in a Frank Patterson print!




    CRG bar end mirror that didn't work out on the sumo, Brooks grip, bell, and another view of the locking brake lever. What can I say? Fatties just want to roll! Or I just want to roll fatties? Either way, the thing is loads easier to park leaning against something when a brake or two is locked so the wheels aren't always rolling out from under it.




    Several options for routing the front fender stay: I sort of liked this one.


    Rather than using a supplied "L" bracket between the fender and caliper brake hole in the steerer, I put a star nut in the bottom of the steerer then used a piece of PVC as a stand-off to get the curvature right. I carry a mud flap for the front that slides under the stay so the slop stays off the bike, but the flap comes off without disturbing the fender if it gets caught up in brush.


    The chain stay stand-off supplied with the fenders.


    Seat stay stand-off, also supplied.

    I shortened the rear fender and wanted to avoid using the rear stay. I used another piece of PVC to stand-off the fender from the rack. The PVC is cut on a slant to fit correctly between the bottom of the rack and the fender. One interesting and useful side effect is that as you rotate the stand-off the rear of the fender twists left and right making it easy to center the fender over the tire with out fender stays to adjust. Even over rough terrain the fender doesn't shimmy enough to rub the tire.


    Heavy equipment. That excavator, too... Ha ha!

    Well, I accidently started another show and tell thread and someone directed me here. So here I am. Only had my Moonie a couple of months but am loving it. Can't wait for more snowy conditions.

    That's awesome! I'll have to keep that trick in mind.

    That Carradice trunk looks great too. I was looking at the Super C saddlebag a few days ago, but I'm not sure if I'd need a bag support.

    Switched the rim tape in the front to match the rear and installed reflective stripe on the rear wheel. Swapped a Toupe saddle for a well broken in B17. Still waiting on my big bag of stainless bolts to replace the assorted temporary ones in the bikes many bosses. I'm not sure if I'll install a rear rack or get a seat bag.

    I don't like how high my Arkel handlebar bag sits. I've got a few stems laying around, so I'll try adding a second one to mount the bag lower.

    The Ibera bags are only $20 shipped. Not as nice as the higher end bags but for those on a budget (such as myself) they make lots of sense. I plan on looking at racks down the line as well.

    I got it from Amazon, its called Progrip Wheel Tape. On some parts of the backing you can see it is 3M reflective tape cut into a 7mm wide roll. Its designed for motorcycles and a single package only has enough for the sides of 3 26" wheels so two packages are needed. The included applicator doesn't work on bike rims but it is simple enough to apply manually. In comes in reflective red, blue or white, but also some fluorescent but non-reflective colors.

    I was tempted to get yellow ones from here: Fiks:Reflective I believe their prices are per wheel. I think those hexagons are new, I may have to buy a pack.


    Personally I think green is the last color they should be selling

    Very cool thanks. Might have to pick up some black just to stick with the moonlander black theme

    Here was my Moonlanders first snowy ride. Ran 7 psi rear, and 5 psi up front. Surprised the thing could go through 10" of powder so easily. However it was nice to finally get on a snowmobile track. Yahoo

    Forgot to mention, I need to get some flats. Way to many times did I have a problem clipping in. Any recommendations, never had to even think about this.

    Got mine about 4 weeks ago. I've been doing beach rides up to 40 miles long along the shoreline of Lake Michigan and on local mtb trails. It's been loads of fun, but I'll be happy when the snow starts flying.

    Good morning! You did well, sounds like a great ride! Consider dropping the pressures a bit, especially if you have any hills to climb!

    I ride Time mx/dh pedals, a flat base around a normal Time ATAC clip. It's not a perfect solution, still gets iced up, but I like being able to clip in most of the time. YMMV! Enjoy!

    Mark, looks like a great ride! I miss the Lake Michigan beaches! I have ridden in SE Mi and around TC a few times in the last few years and I always wish I had the Moonie with me for the float on those sandy trails! Enjoy!

    Right after the inaugural Filthy 50 gravel race. I smooshed a lot of gravel today. Crushing is for small tires.

    i saw 2 moonlanders, a fat tandem, and a mukluk. would have been nice to see more but everyone had their gravel specific ti bikes out today. i was just trying to stay ahead of the tandem.

    edit- yeah, the course was aaaaamazing. the downhills were crazy and almost made up for all the climbing
