    A day in the life of a Pugsley

    I'm going to be posting videos of me and my new love, I mean bike , a Surly Pugsley here.
    So check back every now and then for updates.
    Here's the first one.
    12-18-10
    Second ride on the Pugsley and I love the bike!

    For the video I had my GoPro with a chesty mount running at the same time as a camera with a tripod, so it gives two different perspectives of going over the object at the same time.Glad I was by myself, it was time consuming, but fun!

    There are two paths you can go by but in the long run........

    Your right on knowing the terrain, I knew all the spots I wanted to film.
    A few of the obstacles were my first attempts at them, and done in one take, this bike just gives you so much confidence.

    Whereabouts in PA are you? I live in Allentown and just took delivery of my Pugsley complete. I haven't ridden it yet though, I'm sick But I will be riding on Sunday and can't wait.

    Did you get a complete or build it up yourself?

    Another ride on the Pugsley 12-22-10

    <object width="640" height="505"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/X5z-1EFLi7I?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;color1=0x006699&amp; color2=0x54abd6"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/X5z-1EFLi7I?fs=1&amp;hl=en_US&amp;color1=0x006699&amp; color2=0x54abd6" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="640" height="505"></embed></object>

    The tree ramp over at the end was my first attempt at it, to say it was steep on both sides is an understatement! :shock:









    Who says Pugsleys cant fly?

    Thanks, I was thinking about the tubs, but I was only there once last winter, so I'm not sure on a loop.

    What PSI are you running for the non-snowed-on singletrack?

    I have been playing around with air pressure, 12psi is good for peddling, but kicks up on tree crossings, I think I ended up around 9.5psi on the rear and 8 on the front, I'm hoping to get the seat post shim in so I can try my suspension seatpost out (Nitropro) and see if that tkes away the spoginess feel to the rear tire while peddling uphill, then I can lower the pressure more.
    I'm still in the learning curve on setting up this bike, I just switched the weird stock 25.4 handlebars out for a set of high rise bars, rooting around the garage I found the stock handlebar stem from my Gary Fisher, so I might switch out to a set of 31.8 fat bars.

    Yeah, bought an 18" frame knowing it would be a tad small (for more standover), and I was happy I did, but I need a set of 40-50mm riser bars and they're sort of hard to find in 25.4mm. I may switch to 31.8 but I was figuring they spec'd the 25.4 because it was a rigid and that would help absorb some vibrations?

    I need to find a gauge that reads accurately down at such a low PSI...

    I also am thinking of getting a suspension seatpost, there are a few in the Pug's size from Gravity Dropper, Kind, and X-Fusion (the Kind and X-Fusion being hydraulic).


    Edit: whoops, I meant telescoping seatpost, not suspension

    I was going to buy a 22" glad they talked me out of it, the 20 feels perfect, I just hate the stock bars.

    I bought a digital air guage from Slime less than 10.00 and it works great.

    Check out the Nitro Pro, it has a nitrus shock inside, much like a motorcycle shock, they will set it up for your weight and riding style, it's one of the top rated, and they will throw in the first shim for free.

    I hadn't thought of that the 31.8 would be more rigid wouldn't they?


    Here's the one I bought for my Hardrock, and had laying around the Garage, nothing special, and a cheap price, but they are what you are looking for, 25.4 and a 50mm rise.

    $24.99 and FREE shipping.

    I've gone down around 8psi rear endo on rocky single track and it's pretty nice. I usually run 7 or 8 out front on the larry. Larry seems to be able to take a lower psi and feel good to me than the endo. I'm using the topeak digi gauge and it's working alright for me.

    Cool, thanks for the suggestions for the bar and gauge. I corrected my post, I meant telescoping seatpost, not suspension. I have a bad cold and am not thinking straight lol

    I'd be happy to show you around. In fact, me and the rest of the Tubs crew leaf-blew, trimmed, and generally cleaned up the loops we regularly ride about a month ago. It'd be a shame to let all that hard work go to waste.....

    Let me know when - possibly Sunday morning, if not maybe next weekend.

    Thanks for the offer, I remember last Winter when I was there, the trails were over my head at that time, and in the snow and ice I thought I was going to die several times over!
    I'm not a fast rider by no means especially on the pug, if you wouldn't mind a slow paced shoot some video type of ride let me know when.

    Well tomorrow 10:30ish would be o.k. as I'll be riding SOMEWHERE at that time. If I don't hear back from you before then I'll probably just do an easy loop at the Moon and we can re-schedule for next weekend or whenever. Either reply here or PM me.

    I'm by no means a fast rider any time of year but I'm especially slow in the cold, so no worries there.

    That looks like a real nice place I need to check out sometime on the bike, and great vid. I think the music was Black Sabbath (if I remember right), "Heaven and Hell"? I used to practice along with that song years ago (on bass). I wanna say that sounds like "Ronnie James Dio"? A shame how the memory fades over the years....

    Sweet vid! My favorite part is Rich almost going over the bars - that was a great save and a great use of slow motion.

    Thanks Nanner, going from F.S. to a rigid steel frame and huge tires was a leap of faith, but I'm so glad I did it, cant wait to do a snow ride with you guys this year.

    It was a great ride, Rich is a animal, I cant believe he rode that out, the forks were fully compressed and he must have been on the front wheel for at least four feet!

    Your memory serves you well, it is the late great Ronnie James Dio fronting Black Sabbath, I only had the pleasure of seeing him once at Tinks in Scranton what a awesome voice.

    Excellent videos! I liked the close-ups of the tires on the ground. I can't believe you're running under 10 psi. In the videos I'd have guessed you were at 20 psi or higher judging by how the tires looked. I was expecting them to look almost flat with the low pressures everyone sees to be running.

    I NEED TO GET ME ONE OF THESE BIKES!!! And if I do that means you, XJaredX and I can maybe meet up for a ride (I'm down near Allentown as well).

    I NEED TO GET ME ONE OF THESE BIKES!!! And if I do that means you, XJaredX and I can maybe meet up for a ride (I'm down near Allentown as well).

    Thanks, we need to get a Northeast Pennsylvania Fat bike club going!

    First ride of the new year.
    Not my usual video, but then again it wasn't my usual ride, I only rode here once before last year and the creek was dry, well I guess from the warm weather it wasn't dry anymore!
    sections of the trail were flooded, and I cant remember all the times I crossed water on different parts of the trail, man I'm glad it was warm.

    Pugsley in the snow

    We finally got some snow to ride the Pugsley in.
    I was trying many different angles on the camera mount, some trned out better than others, I ran out of card on the way down screamer.
    If you make it to the end, I put in a good blooper crash cought from 2 perspectives

    Good meeting you to, hope we get together for a ride.
    It was neat contorting the camera mounts in different directions and not being able to see the outcome till I downloaded them on the computer

    Warrior trail

    Saturday I started out at the Garden Drive in, there were some footprints in the snow, but it wasn't packed down, and was really slow going.


    I fought through the pain in my knee and after a few miles it went away, I stopped at the old Train Station.


    Old Train Bridge across the Creek.


    An Antique International Farm Tractor.


    S.C.I. Retreat


    A stop at a boat launch.


    Would you believe there was a guy out on the River in a Canoe!


    I found a Million Dollars on the side of the road!


    I made it 8 miles one way, had a cup of Coffee and what tasted like the best Bannana Nut Muffin the World! Then the long trek back to the truck.

    Video from the ride.

    Yet another ride in the snow alone.
    Started out at White Haven where they got a fresh 4-5 inches of snow the night before, making the trail very soft, my goal was Rockport 8.7 Miles away, even seen sled Dogs on the way, very cool.

    Tried to hit up the Moon today, but it was unrideable, so I settled for a Urban ride.

    Moon Lake 3/26/11

    Went out to Moon Lake after we got dumped on by yet another snow storm, Started out at 9:30 on Natures way 1, Rode 8 , backtracked to Ledgeview, at the end of Ledgview I didn't want to ride the service rode, and being the glutten for punishment that I am, I rode Ledgeview backwards, and Natures Way 1 back to the truck at around 11:45. I had a blast today!
