    Pugsley went on a diet. New wheelset - Marge Lites, Paul whub front, XT rear, and a new snowpack fork.

    Solid updates for sure, can you feel a significant "lightening up" of the bike?

    Nice, I was looking into the same basic setup. What is the bike weighing in at?

    The bike is still a tank, as these are the only upgrades over stock so far. With that said, the wheels definitely spin up faster, and I've found that I can maintain a higher speed with less effort as well.

    While the snowpack helped lighten up the front end a bit, I can't say that the weight savings is very noticeable. I got it primarily to go non-offset with the wheel build, and am loving that aspect. The steering is much more balanced when leaning either way now, and the carbon does smooth out the ride a bit. I haven't noticed any issues with flex, but I'm only 160 lbs. I considered a carver or beargrease fork for even more weight savings over the snowpack, but decided against them since the axle to crown was almost an inch more and I didn't want to change the geometry that much.

    my reasons as well however when solid traction is avail with brakes applied the fork does flex to the naked eyes.

    My first fat bike

    The frame came in 2 weeks ago and the LBS says they should be able to finish the build this week.



    Just in time for the 15* C weather that's arrived in Toronto.

    Can't wait to try it out.

    Carl

    Edit: Just for fun, we tried out a 700x23 on the front since it was built up and well, it makes an interesting comparison:

    Thanks, the shop owner wanted to see just how big the Floyds were on a bike. I'll be using them in the summer and have a Nate and Larry to get me through the winter. With our streetcar tracks and the size of the potholes these days, I don't think I can go wrong with the fat tires or the fork

    I'll get more pics up once it's finished.

    It's right around 33 lbs now (med. frame). Only other mods on the bike are Qtube SL's and a Thomson seatpost. I had never weighed it before so I/m not sure how much the overall weight savings was.

    I called around while riding today. I just couldn't stand those microshi_t shifters any longer. I cut my ride short in order to make it to the LBS to pick up some XT shifters. WOW, what a difference. I'll take the indicators off later.

    I took off my XT shifters to put on the Microshift thumb shifters. I am very happy with them.

    Had to pick up an Enabler so I can ride this thing before I get in on the next run of O'Beasts. And while not newly purchased, a bunch of parts have been pulled from the xc 29er. I was going to order some Escalators tomorrow.... But the 'Q' changed the est available dat ffrom the 15th to...... Well something later.

    Carver snow fork with 100mm spacing for my generator hub and an extra long tube to accommodate my upright riding position. At the top it is wide enough to fit a Bud or Lou. It also has rack mounts. Your Latest Fatbike Related Purchase (pics required!)-uploadfromtaptalk1352950943629.jpg

    I've been experiencing a lot of accidental upshifts at the worst possible time with the the thumb shifters on my Pugsley. Particularly when wearing larger gloves and I hit the side of the lever.

    I don't know much because I picked it up the other day in my local bike shop here in Oz.

    Here's a couple more pics that show the brand.. I like the way it clips onto the seat rails.

    This is why I love MTBR. I'm looking for a saddle bag for a while but could not decide which one I go with. Thanks to DavidJohn my problem is solved. Love how the bag looks so I ordered it already.

    Just bought a 9:zero:7 in blue today with matching fork. Ordered Vee tires. Opted to go with them because most of the riding I plan to do will be at the Leadville Snowbike Race series. I did okay using my 2.2's on an SS setup for the past few years but since I can make the whole series, it's time to go fat.

    Now to decide about wheels.

    Looking good DJ.... some XT hydros would finish the bars off nicely, also has a side effect of dropping a decent weight of the BB7's.

    While riding last Sunday, the temperature went from 30 to 6 with winds over 40. My bottles in fifteen minutes were frozen. I stopped, melted some snow, made some hot chocolate, and thawed my bottles in some water but I don't want that happening again. I got online and ordered some anything cages and Outdoor Research Bottle Parkas in a couple different sizes.
    A road bike buddy commented, "You got out your stove?" "Yep, I carry a Jet Boil, just for instances like this."

    QBP was out of stock in a few days. Hope you were 1 of the lucky folks that got a pair. Word has it the (red) cranks will be available soon. First come first serve with anything fat bike before it goes out of stock! These cranks are not the regular Turbines with a 100mm spindle. The Fat cranks only became available last week. RaceFace moved the chain line out so these are true fat cranks. Some frames are not compatible with these cranks. Running mine with a Bash/32/22 set up.

    I used the "new" 2x10 Turbines all summer on the Race 29er, a nice product for the price. That said they are not nearly as awesome as the OG Turbines.

    I can't tell are they the 3xX or 2xX version? It looks like the 3 chainring version, but the 2 ring would be pretty sweet if that's what was used.

    UPS stopped again today. New Dogwood Poggies. (Wow, these are going to be the ticket for those days under 30 degrees.) New Revelate frame bag. Set up front tire as tubeless. (A test before doing the rear tire.)

    Carver yes indeed...

    Good eye Bob ! the bead blasted logo is subtle... someone was asking for more detail so, here we go - no it's not a full fat Jones it's a Carver Chubby. Carver did have a custom frame
    on their website similar to a space frame, I asked if it could be made as a Fat Bike and my wish was granted.Yes it was made in China. I was sent a schematic prior to the build and was able to change the geometry to my liking with Carver's help and input. The welds are quite nice. I was told that this would be the only one made by Carver as Jeff has asked him not to produce anymore...

    I'm new to this site, and have been stalking all the fat bike posts. I just ordered a surly neck romancer and it's coming as a complete in a box. No surly dealer anywhere near me. Wondering if any of you guys could tell me if the assemble is within the realm of a rookie bike mechanic. I don't have a clue how many pieces the thing is going to be in. I'm looking forward to it, but don't know if I need to be making a call to the LBS for an assembly quote. Also, I'm going to have a brand new never ridden 2013 redline monobelt for sale if you know any one interested. My wife got me the redline as a birthday present, but I wanted a fatbike. The monobelt is sweet with the reba, hydros, and new center track system, but I couldn't help myself. I figured I could peddle the monobelt to fund most of my new fatbike. I'll post a pic when I get the new pugsley (after it's assembled).

    Assuming it is as it comes from Surly, it will need the steerer tube cut for the fork, and then the brakes and derailleurs will need to be trimmed properly (both cables as well as the "trim" of the shifting). If these are something you are comfortable doing, then you will be all set.

    Thanks a bunch for the info. I'll probably get it all assemble then maybe take it to the bike shop for the trimming. I need to get some stuff anyways up there(pedals, a new helmet, etc), so maybe they'll hook me up on the fine tuning.

    I picked up an extra tube and a chain-stay protector. If I could get rid of this damn sinus infection I could actually ride the thing again!

    Did Blacksheep get asked to stop making their bikes? What a load of crap. Jeff did not invent the design. He shouldn't ask anyone to stop using a frame design the he copied himself. I think carver should put it into production.

    Is this an adaptor?

    [QUOTE=All Seasons Cyclist;8835771]I just got my Pugs last week I made a lot of modifications, but the best was the Shimano Alfine SG-S501 8-Speed Internal Hub. A complete list of the modifications can be seen at:



    Are you putting this 135mm hub in a 170mm frame? I'm trying to find a solution for this. Not sure how it would work if so giving that the hub is a bolt on. Unless that end is threaded. Any help would be great.

    Thanks, Wil

    Thats a righteous setup. Looking forward to a Lefty on my 9:zero:7 someday for riding the technical stuff.

    Serfas tool

    I've had my Salsa Beargrease a week and the first thing I've purchased for it is this serfas ST-17i CO2 Inflator tool and a couple of 25 gr cartridges.

    First ever wheel build; Holey Rolling Darryl, Circus Monkey Lefty Hub, Sapim Laser Spokes with Chrome Brass nipples. Not the straightest, or most round, although most of the deviation is at the weld, and it's a single wall fatbike wheel.

    Darryls with even joints are VERY few and far between.

    I was truing my front wheel before installing my Bud last night. I got it very close to radially true on the left side but there was still a notable radial jog on the right side. Truing is enough of a hassle when the rims are actually straight to begin with.

    I'm with you. I really am getting frustrated with the lack of QC applied to fat rims and tires. At least they're reasonably priced.

    Initially I was not happy with the variations in the rims, but these are for 4" tyres after all, and so the effect of a little inaccuracy in the rim isn't going to be noticed compared to say, a 700c wheel with a skinny tyre.

    My latest fatbike purchase is... um... snowshoes...

    We've had over 60cm of snowfall this November, compared to 50cm all last year. I think they are saying we broke the local snowfall record for this month.

    After the first big dump a 2hr hike-a-bike brought home the reality that you have to walk before you ride. So I picked up my first set of snowshoes. It turns out snowshoeing isn't all bad. In fact it is kind of fun in its own way.
