    Rohloff in 16’’ Pugs, mounting hardware?

    All: I did the impossible and have got a used 16'' Pugs as well as a used Rohloff.

    I have Studded Dillingers on the way via the mail, am looking at racks front and rear, then some locally-made sheet metal fenders, kickstand, etc.

    In my small, extremely isolated subartic town, I have to get all of the parts brought in by mail, preferably no later than Feb., as the bike mech's get overrun once we get some sort of a thaw, even though May is still late winter here.

    I have a pretty complete parts set for the Rohloff, including an anti-torque arm, beaded German cable housings, regular cable+housings and a shifter, manual.

    Am I missing anything in terms of parts to mount the Rohloff in the Pugs frame?

    So, do I need Tugnuts to mount the Rohloff on a Pugsley? Is there any other hardware that I need?

    THe bike is great, the fenders hideous. You should un-ulglify it by ditching the fenders.

    How far north do you live?

    That is far north, and friggin cold in the winter. I'm a pu$$y and live in southern Ontario, however my wife lived in Grande Prairie, and she knows that cold.

    I'm only razzing you about your fenders because you've got a good pile of change into that machine, combined with an inelegant fender set up that doesn't do the bike justice.

    If you come accross a pair of mtorcycle front fenders from a trials bike you'd be golden, however that sounds like an impossibility due to your isolation.

    Do you carry a gun for bears?

    I would like to counter-Razz you on your fenders, & if you switch them out, I'd be interested in purchasing them.

    Do you carry cakes/cupcakes as seen in your cupcake holder in the very first pic you posted ?

    OC bear spray is much easier to carry around that a gun + easier to use...the plastic container on the front is an ex-deli box to sort spare parts for the bike into, motorcycle trials fenders would take 2 for each wheel to get the same coverage, would have to be mail-ordered in+cludged together somehow=same ugly.

    Biked up to Fraser's shack on Squatter's Row, an unserviced road, for dinner Sunday night, gray water-covered ice and slush in places slush+ice water was 10cm deep, so glad for the ugly full coverage fenders!
