    Studs on Pug

    After three brutal falls on an ice rink yesterday I want studs. I am thinking Vee Rubber Snowshoe XL on the front. What about the back? I am pretty sure the Snowshoe won't fit my '14 Pugsley. Is the Dillinger 4 the only remaining option?

    My LBS has a set of Snowshoes coming in today I am going to check them out.

    I have been running Dillinger 4s on my Pug the last three winters - worth the price of admission. I had them on Marge Lite's and just had a set of Sun/Ringle Mulefuts built up. Went from 65mm to 80mm and then tubeless - really a solid way to go. I live in SE Wisconsin and the trails here have been hard packed and ice-y for the last 6 weeks or so.

    Really? D5s will fit with no rub?? I was pretty sure anything bigger than a 3.8" in the back was too big. The ice is gone in NH for now, but I think I'll save up for some Dillingers for next season. My Nates are performing well out here.

    PLUS, I want to grab a set of Rabbit Holes and 3" Knards for the summer.

    D5's should fit. You might have to move the wheel back for der. clearance. Fatback Sterling is about the same size as D5, and I installed one on my gf's Pugs. 65mm rims. There's plenty of clearance.

    So maybe a set of Monkey Nuts to scoot wheel back?

    I used a couple of chainring bolts/backers.

    Thnx Sean...I have limited wrenching skills. Will moving the wheel back require any derailleur or other adjustments?

    So the chainring bolts just provide a stop like the Monkey Nuts do to ride the wheel a little further back, right?

    You might have to adjust the single set screw on the back of the derailleur, called the 'B' screw, nothing else should change. Yep, the chainring bolts/monkey nuts just provide a stop for the wheel. Since they'll only sit on one side of the axle, I positioned it so that the leading edge of the QR is what contacts the trailing edge of the bolt, not the axle. That way the QR gets even clamping pressure/contact all the way around.

    Thnx Kelly...I figured the D4s were safe on my Pug. I was thinking D5 front, D4 rear, but it looks like the D5 MIGHT fit the rear too. Hmmmm.

    More photos for you.

    Location of B screw. Move the wheel back, ride the bike, only adjust this if the shifting is wonky. You'll be tightening it.

    Clearance on an old Purple Pug with the Sterling, tubed on a LM at about 5 psi.
