I headed out last night in the Front Range foothills of Colorado near Estes Park with Cytoe, Venatarama, and Crash for an inaugural ride of two Pugsleys we've recently finished. We've been waiting for parts since I-bike and just finally got everything in. Thanks go out to Ventanarama for yet another top notch kick arse wheel build and component group.
Monster Truck Rallye:
It had been snowing all day with 3-4" of fresh cyrstalline snow when we arrived at the Mt. Crosier singletrack trailhead. It continued to snow through most of our ride and WOW...what an awesome ride. The Pugs rides like a little Monster Truck....decimating all in it's path. With a smooth even cadence....the Pugs will tractor up surprisingly steep terrain in the fresh snow and for it's 36.5lbs, feels very nimble yet stable on the snow. The Pugs was much easier to pedal uphill than the 2.35 tire-d bikes that were slipping & sliding. The Pugs made short work of the snow. On the way down we dropped the front tire pressure to 5-7psi....and the traction under braking was silly awesome. The two Pugs left the other bikes in the dust. Ventanarama and I drove back to town together and laughed most of the way as we recalled our ride on the Pugs......smiles galore.
