    Which would you buy?

    Which would you buy-- a used 2014 Surley Pugsley (from what I can tell it seems to be in really good condition and it's already tubeless) for $615.00 or a brand new 2015 Specialized Fat Boy for $1340.00?

    I would buy the one I liked the best. The beauty of a bicycle is that every time you ride it your bringing down the per ride cost, the more you ride the less each ride cost. If you ride the Fatboy twice as much it will essentially cost the same. Generally the more you like a bike the more you ride it.

    Pugs, sounds like a great deal, and it's not a specialized

    Find a used Fatboy Carbon. I got mine almost brand new still on stock tires that looked like they had less than 100 miles on them for $1500. Be patient.

    You canít go wrong with either.

    Both are good gateway drugs.

    If you don't need tires wider than 4", go Pugs. If you need wider tires, I would look around a bit. The wheels with 135mm front axle and QR front and rear is a bit dated on the Specialized.
