    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.

    I've fashioned a set of stirrups from the bead of a folding tire. They are lashed around the TT.

    I have to give credit to Penn Cycle in Eagan MN on the paint and build.
    I told them what I wanted and they made it happen.

    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
