    Who's got the new Vicious Thunderwing?

    Spoke to Greg at Vicious yesturday, he said they just made a Thunderwing for someone who is 4'11". My wife is 1" taller. I'd like to see it built up with the rider next to it.

    Anyone know who the lucky rider is?

    I am 5' with a 28" inseam. I have an xs Wildfire frame, she's welcome to try it. I know how hard it is to find bikes that fit petites.

    Thanks for the offer

    We live in Maine. Any chance you have pictures of the bike?
    There aren't too many xs snowbikes outthere. Most are up in Alaska. A little too far for a test ride

    Desalvo can make a xs, it takes about 6months but nothing can compare to a custom, hand built bike made just for you! Worth the wait!

    That's pretty cool. Even though it has a tiny seat tube,it still looks "right". Big tires liven up any frame.

    Another option is the Fatback which can be made to any custom geometry.
    Prices are usually~$1500 for frame and fork. Not bad for Ti. And the wait is usually about a1-11/2month.

    Too bad the Surly's don't have more standover.

    Thanks for the pictures

    That could be my wifes new background on her computer. That bike looks just right.

    I have been pestering Surly for a few years now about a 14in Pugs. They tell me it's too small of a market in an already small market. I understand,but I still bug them .
    That leaves more room for the Viciuos,Wildfire,Desalvo and others to fill the gap. Price puts the purchase off, making for a longer wait or forcing the purchase of a bike too big. We bought a 16 in Pugs knowing it wouldd be a touch too big for me. Adjusted the stem lenght and handlebar pull back. Rides great. Now my wife wants one.

    runts rule

    Nice Fatbike er..back.

    The StubPug really goes well in most snow conditions. Its just when the snow in churned-up by snowmachines that it bogs down. The Pugs just floats over. I have been playing with tire pressure alot lately. Some gains at lower psi, some losses.

    Still, WAY TOO MUCH FUN In the snow

    I think I'll "suffer through " this winter and keep stashing away $$ for a custom frame.
