    Besoft, it is fairly accurate, although it seems that it gives slightly colder readings. It should be new.

    Topeak Aero Wedge Pack

    I finally found a saddle bag that will hold a spare inner tube (a Surly Toob) for my Pugs.
    The Topeak Aero Wedge Pack has room to spare and fits up snug under the saddle.

    Score! I stopped at 3 bike shops to find these. One came from a guy who won it in a bike race, but runs big fat larry's, so he didnt need it. They weigh in at 1339 and 1357 grams.

    Hey Fakie I have some good and bad news for ya, the bad is there is a recall on the HD that weigh under 1400g as they have been known to explode. The good news is we will exchange them with new to slightly used ones weighing over 1400g free of charge. I will PM you with the proper return shipping address shortly.

    Sorry for any inconvienence......BoB

    Some of the last Husker Du's left in the wild?



    They look kinda nice on the bike.



    They are noticeably narrower than the Larry's, and even Endo's. Nevertheless, the extra knobbiness will be welcome on off-camber stuffs.

    Project

    I love my Redline monocog 29er. (280 bucks from Craigslist). I cannot afford to spend the money for a full fat bike but have been wanting the "Fat Front" for a while.

    Universal cycles has GFS rims for $38. (Got one for Valentines Day! - I love my wife)
    I have the drill ready.. but am going finish the build before I get cocky.

    The hub is a Van Dessel 135mm flip flop. I spun the threads on the fixed side (note to self - do not buy cheap cogs - but the other side is untouched. Spokes are whatever I had in the right length. Brass nipples. For the brake Montano Velo has the adapter.
    ($35)

    Now for the fork. I know group of welders here who build off-road suspension and they think they can weld a bike fork - and I quote "it will take 10 minutes". So I am taking my Redline Monocog front fork and stretching it to 135mm spacing bottom to top (preserving the disk brake tab proximity and geometry). If this fails (failure during the build process is okay. Failure during first ride not so much)...

    I will save and buy for the Enabler or Pugs non offset 135mm this summer.

    So far the highest cost item will be the tire. I want to stay traditional so I will most likely go Larry, but a tubeless Origin 8 seems like a fun idea.

    The whole front end
    Salsa Enabler fork. Mukluk takeoff
    Surly Nate tire
    Surly tube/rim strip
    Surly ss hub/Vicious Cycles Graceful Fat Sheeba rim/skewer


    I am awaiting what On One will be doing with the proto fat bike and pretty loyal to them and would like that frame. Will also look at having the Sheeba drilled to cut some weight, it's overall not that much heavier then my Grande Maxle with flow and Bronson I can still maneuver just like a traditional front end if not better with so much grip.

    I am about to pull the trigger on a studded rear.

    High volume pump, perfect for fat tires (maybe in black would be nice). Easy mount, no rubbing.

    Rack now fitted. It's a cheapo from Madison and seems to be badged as it's also available under a few different names. I had to modify the lower mounts and I thought the Giant seatclamp with rack mounts gave a better line to the upper mounts than those on the frame.

    The seat is a Diamondback. They are reasonbly priced on Amazon.

    @Sand Rat. Our unit does off road patrol. We use motorcycles, ATVs and snowmobiles. The fat bikes makes sense to me. I can make the same patrols quietly.

    @gear. Thanks for the tip using the Surly rear rack on the front.

    Looks Fantastic! I would love to see closeups of the rear rack installed. Did you need to bend anything? Feel free to respond in the thread below.

    Moonlander Racks - Show and Tell

    Also a quick shot of your bicycle pump, brand name? Clearance issues? Again Fantastic Job on your bike.

    Side note the Moonlander works well at spoking kids on motorcycles. I had two the other day take a double take when they came around the corner. Dressed in black I think I had them spooked.

    Have fun out there!

    Picked up a Speedway 70mm rim and Salsa Mukluk 170mm rear hub. We've got fresh powder after a pretty disappointingly 'dry' winter here in NH. Almost done with my build. One of the most fun wheels I've built to date. More here.

    Nalgene ATB Bottles

    A few weeks ago I was riding my Pugs off-road and saw a horse emptying his bladder on the trail when it dawned in me that mud was not the only thing clinging to my water bottles!
    The next day I stopped at the local bike shop and they showed me the Nalgene ATB All-Terrain Bottle and it solved all of my problems.
    Here is a quick review of the bottles: Nalgene ATB All-Terrain Bottle With Domed Lid « All Seasons Cyclist

    If I could get a copy of the memo of how you justified that expenditure to your boss, I'd appreciate it. Because I want to scam the same thing. If you spent your own $$$ to serve and protect, then:


    1. Rock On!
    2. Thank you, and
    3. Get your accountant to deduct that!

    No taxpayers funds were used. The unit recieves a grant from Off Highway Vehicle registration in California. We are issued bikes but most use their personally owned vehicle (bike).

    Next step after final sanding is to take it to a local welder with frame repair skills to have Anything Cage mounts installed, inspired by gregclimbs' outstanding work here.

    Then off to the powdercoater for some RAL 2010 "Signal Orange" to match my 9:Zero:7
    Not exactly a "purchase", but certainly an expenditure of funds...

    Just picked up my Puglsey fork from Powder Coat Finishes in Baltimore.



    They didn't have RAL 2010 in stock, and I'm both a procrastinator and on a tight timeline, so they recommended (and I went with) "Bengal Tiger Orange". It looks pretty close to what I remember of my 9:Zero:7 frame; perhaps a little bit less "red". As yet I've been unable to compare them. When I get the two components together in a month after I move, I'll let you all know...

    Thanks for the saddle info. btw, what type of bag is that on the top tube of the Moonlander? It looks like the gas tank style as shown on the Revelate Designs website. Thanks again,

    it will be both... Singlespeed in the "front" using a Quando XT singlespeed hub and in the "back" an Shimano Alfine (8 or 11 ... still searching) the front will get a 38tooth chainring... i wanted an octane one Crankset but the one i liked was discontinued and nowhere to buy anymore...

    thats the PROJECT to this crankset...

    i wanted a red Octane One DH1... but the colour is discontinued...now they have only blue, black and white... and so i bought the also white NC-17 Crankset of a friend (he only drove it 25miles to check it on his bike before he found out he wanted something lighter (569gramms))... the red Octane one was a 2011 model and can't be ordered by my LBS anymore

    If all goes well today, I'll be the owner of a lightly used Pugsley. I've got to see if the geometry will work for me though. I'm 6'-0" and normally ride a large Nomad, but I've kind of had my eye on the 18" Pugsley. The one that I'm about to check out is a 20"... Hopefully it works, because I think I can get a good deal on it, but if not I'll just have to wait for an 18" to come along. I think it should be ok, because the top tube measures out pretty much the same as my Nomad, but the standover height has me concerned, though it's not clear how standover is measured on the Pugsley from the Surly website. I've got a 33" inseam, and Surly lists the standover at 32.25". Are my nads going to have enough room with that kind of setup?

    It turned out to be just fine actually. I'm a little more stretched out than I would prefer, but it's nothing that I can't fix with a shorter stem (had the stock 110mm stem on it). I got a great deal on it too, so it was hard to pass up

    Wow. I always feel 'build' or 'project' are big terms for what is basically an assembly.

    But that is certainly a build.

    SKS Grand M.O.M. Oversized Rear Mudguard

    I love playing in the mud on my Pugs, but the clean-up is a real pain.
    So, I purchased the SKS Grand M.O.M. Oversized Rear Mudguard and life is much better.

    multiple purchases

    Well I received my fat sand bike on thursday, purchased the lefty and already made contact with MendonCycleSmith for clamps and a 36 hole hub.

    I purchased a hayes gram front 160 hyd. setup ($90 including rotor mount and all hardware still with warranty) looking for the adapter for 9" rotors now....

    left to purchase rear igh setup, nuvinci or alfine, grips and pedals.

    ^Is that frame suspension corrected? Sure doesn't look like it. Can that fork even handle a 9" rotor? I would think a XC fork wouldn't be design to take it.

    I can see the trail from here!

    All I need is the brake adapter and make the call on cutting for the stem height.
    (Might leave it high for the dirt drops)

    The pugs fork lowered the font about 30mm but fast and twitchy is my style.
    Total fat investment is 230 bucks.

    If I like it, parts will be migrated to the JabberWocky frame - Then out comes the hole saw - and the ghetto tubeless!

    Finished.. okay still need....

    Done. I cannot find a spacer and still need zip ties (and for it to stop raining!).
    But Frank is finished for now... I should have the new frame in a few days (Jabberwocky) - so it is not finished yet... and I am going to drill the rim... Okay so it is never done - but that is why I do things like this..

    Thanks for the huge storm we had this weekend.. I had 3 whole hours undisturbed by children or wife in bike shed (it was 45 deg and raining) but problems were solved.

    I had some trouble with the pugs fork disc spacing.. my cunning plan with the flip flop hub and adapter required a little work with a grinder and for some reason a post mount adapter (still cannot figure that out) but everything works and lines up! I have a few extra mounting brackets in the shed for "modification" mishaps.

    I am a little ashamed of the PVC spacer but I vowed not to disassemble any working bike in this project and did not feel like running out to the LBS.

    Need some platform pedals, so ordered up some DMR V12's...


    Love the position of the stock Pugsley bars, but the grips make my hands numb, so I have some Ergon GS1's on the way...


    And finally, I found what seems to be the last Husker Du available anywhere... It arrives tomorrow, then the ghetto tubeless conversion begins

    Here are a few shots of the bags from Buggybags.
    (Especially interesting for Europeans !)
    I ordered a frambag from Jon, and i am happy to say that i am very pleased with it !
    The order took a bit longer than usual, but he made up for that big time !
    ( the delay was because Jon had to move, at the last moment i thought of some some changes, and there was an error made with the shipping adress that i use so it was returned to Jon twice....)

    The righthand side of the framebag has 2 compartments, a small one for tools, pump and lock. (with black on black embroidery!)
    And a bigger one that has a smaller pocket inside for some small things, (pretzel M&M's in this case)
    And the Bottom of the upper compartment can be removed to create one big compartment.
    The entire left side is one big pocket for maps.
    As a bonus Jon made 2 gastank/TTbags that were a try out for some other things he's working on.
    The first one a a basic bag that is attached to the frambag with 2 velcro flaps, that will easily fit a 1.25 liter soda bottle. (the bottle in the picture is a 0.75Ltr one)
    And the second one is a bag with a window to put your phone/gps in and it will be protected from the elements and still see or use it.
    this one also attaches with 2 velcro flaps, but it has a extra piece of velcro so that it can be used on other bikes as well without having to use the framebag.

    Jon has another satisfied cutomer that is already contemplating another order for a frambag..!

    That looks like one bad ass commuter bike... Is that a hydraulic rim brake?
