    Show off your Moonlanders

    There dosent seem to be a thread for some moonlander love. Oh sure they all are the same color, but each has its own personality so let's see em.

    If you could list some of your upgrades or custom mods for them.

    Some changes I have made include Azonic double wall risers, old xtr seat post, bud & loud tires, revelate bags, salsa seat clamp, wtb rocket V saddle and some white grips and rim tape.

    Nice Moonies! I got a chance to ride one a couple of weeks ago at a Surly demo and had a blast. The ability to crawl over just about anything on the trail (or off the trail, for that matter!) put a HUGE smile on my face all afternoon.

    My buddy (who rides a larger frame than I do) got a chance to ride a Moonlander that afternoon that was setup with Bud and Lou: the traction was crazy, even on extremely loose trail going uphill -- very impressive!

    I should have mine up and running by the end of the week.

    It looks like the bud/Lou tire combo is going to be the most popular upgrade for this beast.

    I would like to see pegs for their feet too. My son is 8 months and I can't wait until he's old enough to ride with me like this...but he could absorb so much more of the trail and really ride the bike if he had a place to put his feet.

    When I first ordered this frame I thought that I would repaint it. Then it came in and I was blown away. wow is this a pretty paint job or what.

    Love the Scottish twist! Is that actual tartan rim tape, or just fabric, with (presumably?) rim tap on the tube side? I was at a Surly fat bike demo a few weeks ago (Pugsley/Moonlander/Krampus!) and met a handful of guys who all had tartan seats

    Love the purple/magenta accents, too -- looks awesome!

    The Tartan rim tape is 2" wide ribbon with the Surly rim tape behind, as with the Gusset tartan seat they are `Stewart` Royal Tartan` as worn by the man himself Bonnie Prince Charlie

    Wish i could get Brooks to dye a saddle in tartan

    Haven't gotten around to building up the red front wheel - but only because I put a Lefty on the fatback and had a spare front wheel. I'd rather ride than wrench, I suppose....

    Almost done minus the crankset. I think I have to get a Lou for the back eventually because Bud makes BFL look like a slick or something.

    Edit: I guess my pictures didnt show up. Stupid tablet.

    i have never ridden a fat bike as well balanced as this one, its just right. it rolled straight and steady up and over everything. the trails are thrashed in jersey. there are trees down everywhere and the moonie went right around them all. the perfect bike to venture off the trail and forge new lines. i dont ever see myself getting rid of this one.

    bighit's Moonie with the green and black gives me a total broner. I am a Mukluk guy now, but this makes me think my next bike will be a Moonie. Very well done!

    I like the orange accent color scheme on your Moonlander. What is the brand name on the fenders? I haven't seen them before. And have you gotten into serious mud with your bike to the point that you have really needed them? Did they clear out the mud effectively? Thanks...

    (this is in response to #8 on this board, the "Orange Crush" bike -- this is my first post here so I am learning how the software works; I thought this question would appear under the original post in threaded format... sorry about confusion...)

    Dave's Mud Shovel from Portland Design Works.

    They are great at keeping the wet spray off. Since they are pretty thin plastic, a sticky heavy mud will probably cause problems. I've been splashing through typical wet mud holes from the freeze thaw cycle and they've handled that well. The amount of clearance is pretty much up to the installer so plenty of room can be had.

    Reflective marking tape. Looks good at night when lights hit it. Other colors are available too... Top Tape And Label RST134SR Tape, Reflective, 3W x 15 ft L, Yellow

    FYI... I left the tape backing on and then used a 24" split tube as my rim strip. If you try to back it with duct tape it will crack when the tube inflates. Might not on smaller holes, but on the clown shoe cutouts it did.
