    Velocity Dually 29 on a Pugsley for 29+?

    Hey Guys,

    Trying to figure out what wheels I want to build myself for my birthday

    I would love to get me a Surly Krampus but its just not in the funds. However, I would love to build me up a pair of 29+ wheels that I could use on it with some Knards. That is what brings me to my question.

    Is anyone running 29 inch Velocity Dually's on their Pugsley? From plugging some numbers in Freespoke, it looks possible, but wanted to see if there were any real life experience out there!!

    Thanks!

    Just curious, why not go with a rabbit hole rim? It has an offset spoke bed that should allow for more even spoke tension. I looked at the dually and p35's but decided on the rabbit hole because of the offset. By the way, the 29er+ knards really do transform the Pugsley into a different bike, I think you'll be very happy with the 29er+ set up.

    +1 - get the RHs for the offset spokes.

    Yea, rabbit holes are the way to go with the pug offset.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    RH are by far the best way to go, but I just can't see paying 150 bucks a rim. It blows my budget out of the water

    MSRP on the dually is 134 per rim....so unless you're getting a killer deal on them, you're not going to save that much money and won't have nearly as strong a wheel build.

    Now if you could get an undrilled dually and have the holes drilled offset, you'd be set.
    Oh noes. I'm going to drink the Kool-Aid.

    For what it's worth, having built quite a few Dually wheelsets I can assure you tension has been extremely even on all the ones I've built -- 120kgf the whole way around with little variance from spoke to spoke. If you're referring to tension side to side, we don't however, recommend building it offset. You'll wind up with too much tension on the NDS and not enough on the DS.

    This post is about fitting 29+ rims to a Pugsley 135mm frame which is offset 17.5mm to the driveside.
