    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.

    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.

    I normally use photobucket and pop it in

    since that pick , I've added a charge spoon saddle, ergo cork grips, sks front downtube guard, white tire liners, new pedals and a cheap frame bag

    My Nick Drake "Pink Moon"lander.
    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.)

    Anyone running Roling Darryls on a Moonlander or is that blasphemous?

    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.
