    I don't know much about Strava to be honest. Not much of a competitive cyclist either. More of a weekend warrior, recreational guy.

    Was debating whether to install my rack or get a seat bag and opted for the rack, it makes a great handle. I had to tweak the fender I was using on my Pugsley to get it to fit. I also trimmed about 10" off the end and attached it to the rack so I wouldn't need to use fender stays. Since it doesn't wrap around the rear, I can get the wheel out without having to loosen the fender.

    so having had a pugs, then a 9zero7, then a carver Ti (which I still have) I have always liked the sheer awesomeness of a moonie with 100's on

    so built his up from a used frameset

    clownshoes rims, 4.8 tyres (BUD/LOU)
    salsa OD moonlander crank
    bb7's, xtr/xt gears
    hope hubs/ headset
    running spesh 3,0 tubes
    weight is 35lbs

    my mate sprayed the clownshoes and bars, kawasaki green. Never seen one done in this colour scheme before. I am really pleased with how it came out. Big thanks to Tim at sideways for assembly of my box of bike parts !!!

    so this is gonna be my pure winter fat bike, keeping the carver with huskers on for summer times

    enjoy the pics

    it is technically 4 speed - 2 chainrings and two cogs (19 and 22) but close enough. This one was build for missus, will post mine as soon as its ready (will be fixed or single speed (for before the snow easy trails) with B&L as well)


    Next to my little fixed marin (little compared to Moonie - normal size mtb ):

    Yellow Surly Moonlander decals & headbadge

    Crappy picture... but just wanted to show my Moonlander in it's new yellow glory. I'll have to get some more in it's natural habitat.

    Despite how easy it seems to chip Surly decals... they surprisingly REALLY suck to try and take off.

    Moonlander shock - owner fits Black Floyds

    As she came with BFL's. Found these have decent grip, can slide on sloping shingle more float than grip, good for general riding nothing like the drag expected.



    Birthday present Bud and Lou. Huge amount of traction, ride much further on loose shingle, almost too much grip for my old legs. massive rolling resistance on the road.



    Have always found the Moonlander very comfortable to ride. riding my 29er somehow put my back out really badly, so needed to keep to Moonlander but with less resistance for now. So bought a pair of Black Floyds.



    Really interesting. almost gives you a new bike. It is frustrating that we cannot fit 29+ wheelsets, whereas the Pugsley can. I think these Black Floyds, and even more so the new ones due, meet that need. I have written about how able these tyres are. I was surprised to find I could ride shingle that i failed to ride on my 29er. So the BF's do give good float and very low rolling resistance.

    You may have read about "wander" with BF's. At 15 psi I found some wander on pavement, non on hardpack, tracks etc. At lower pressure about 13 psi the wander was much more noticeable and not something you would want all the time. Raising pressure to 20 psi eliminated just about all wander and is very fast to ride. rather bouncy but if you want to cover ground gravel touring etc it means the Moonie is completely fine.

    The new Black Floyds could be good and open up a whole new aspect of Moonie ownership.

    back is getting much better now and looking forward to some New Forest exploration with the Bud and Lou's over this winter.

    Just to note, she is standard apart from On One Mary bars, old Brooks B17, Crud Catcher guards, superbly comfortable Ergon grips.

    Sram 9 speed chain, VeloSolo 21T cog and surly lockring
    wellgo mg-1 pedals and ynot straps

    Took the bottle cages and planet bike wired computer which took my Moonlander into sub 30 lb territory. I took the pics on my phone and couldn't manage to get all of the bike and the scale in the same pic.

    I reused the hubs, bar, stem, fork, wire bead tire, and seatpost.

    it's got a 2.5 inch hookworm on a 47mm neon trials rim out back, so not quite full fat. it's seriously fun to ride though and makes me smile even more than my moonlander.

    Thank you! I love it - just got back from first ride, about 12k mixed pavement and mud. Such a fun bike! Got me thinking about downsizing (or rather adding different bikes to the stable) - I got several fixies for offroad and some are almost duplicate (like I have two karate monkeys which are setup very similar). So will probably sell one of the monkey frames and will build a Krampus for next summer.

    Wicked build, very cool! Debating at the moment between building another almost fat (Krampus) or redoing one of my KM's into 1/2 fat (29x3 in front and leave 29x2.4 at the back)

    Nice colour scheme. DMR makes a green grip that would match perfect.

    Working on the moonie

    I'm off for a beach ride after Christmas and have spent the last two days getting my new Moonie ready. Won’t be to everyone’s liking but it'll suit my needs.

    Had all the bits, apart from the racks, lying around / on other bikes.

    Had to mod the BOB yoke to fit the rear offset.

    Modded the mounts for the rear rack so it sits centre.

    I fitted a steerer tube extender and riser bars and so had to change the brake and shifter cables.

    Fitted a Race Face BMX head stem because it's nice and short.

    Fitted a 203 rotor to the front.

    Fitted mudgaurds, after getting into them with a hot air gun. Not pretty but will work!

    Fitted a KS dropper post and my trusty Brooks saddle.

    I've filled all tubes with Stans. Sadly, can report it didn't seal a 6mm snake bite...... Would love to go tubeless but hell, I don't have the time.

    Not overly happy with the front rack position, bit far forward, but hopefully it'll last for the trip. It'll only be carrying 10Kg of water and some light stuff.

    I need the trailer to carry the desal unit, 20L bucket, raft, and a bit of camera gear. Most weight will be on the bike.

    I'm picking up a Lou, [big thanks to Bike Works and Bike Bag Dude for making that happen] prior to leaving and will fit it to the rear prior to starting out. It now has BFL's on it.

    I still have to fit my 10" tablet with my onboard maps to the bar.

    If I survive the first week, I'll be gone for about a month. I'm calling it an "Exploratory Ride" That means I've done no planning other than "mmmm, might see if I can ride from Albany to Perth along the beach and 4WD tracks" !!!!! A lot of it passes through country I've never visited so I'm really looking forward to it.

    I've got 3 days to get my Shite together before my lift leaves......

    Did it mostly in my lounge because where I live it's too bl00dy hot to work outside.

    Good job!

    Been having fun in Boulder County's high country

    Show off your Moonlanders-dsc_7555.jpg

    This 11 mile loop out of Peaceful Valley has plenty of traffic in some places to provide a fast roller coaster decent, but only parts of the climb and the connector between road and trail had any traffic on it. A good mile was spent making a new kind of fat bike track

    I beat this 2012 Mulelander and she loves it.

    I beat this 2012 Mulelander and she loves it.

    I'm the male donkey and my friend is the mare.
    Abopted it via ebay in an effort to keep riding since I rode my full-squish all summer hard.
    I'm from southern NH and used to live-to-bike and wanted to get back into it at 56.
    2013 was the best year in a long long time for me and it will be very hard for me not to continue choosing Surly as my vendor of choice.
    Surly is the Phish of biking for me and I love the vibe.


    I ride it every other day on average since the fall and have experienced every type of winter terrain imaginable.
    Riding the same hard to ride in the summer on my FSR single-track with the Moonlander on shoeshoe packed trails at almost the same speed is a total high.
    I'm peaking!!!!! Go Trey.

    Well anyways here's some real bad pic's of my Moonie.

    Cool-blue Rhythm Awesome Day in the Snow

    Finally had a chance to play in the snow with my Moonie! What a blast! Almost makes me like winter! BTW: There were some pretty steep climbs on some ice covered snow and my Bud and Lou's were AWESOME!
