    I think there is more than ten of us!

    I've got two Pugsleys! One for my self and building up one for my better-half

    Maybe we should all try meet somewhere in the middle when the snow arrives "Aviemore, Drumochter Pass, Killiecrankie??"

    I think my frame could possibly be the first one to have been here. You might have seen it before........

    LoL.. I think half the universe has seen that particular frame. Truth be told it was Coastkids video's that got me hooked on fatbikes, that and struggling to get out in the snow with my "normal" MTB.

    Reason i let Yoda ride my pug at the weekend was to kickstart him again to save/scrounge/steal/beg or borrow the money to get my old pug frame built

    His grin after rolling down his first big dune was priceless

    Here is his film from Saturday, nice film Mike!

    Hi, sorry to jump on your topic, but as a fellow Scot, I need some Pugsley info rather quick!!

    With reference to a complete Pugsley, does the from fork (non brake side) have a slight curve to it?, or should it be straight like the brake side fork?.

    T.I.A.

    It is normal because of the offset front wheel......so no, it's not bent!

    Back OT........what colour is the pug getting repainted?

    The snow's here lads.

    Was considering heading up Ben Wyvis today, but had the pup with me.

    Looked like some more was being deposited, so maybe I'll take a look on Friday.

    'Puffer entries open soon - be good to see a fatbike turnout.

    I've always fancied doing the Corrieyairack in winter. I've been caught near the top in a blizzard in August - had to overnight, just as well I had a tent and sleeping bag. Any other idiots fancy a crack?

    Never biked in the Cairngorms, only walked and camped.
    So it may be time to be more environmentally aware and stop the erosion caused by size 7 vibram soles!!

    The Pug build has never slowed down, its just financially limited! I need to save up the rest of the money to buy everything. Good I've paid back my dad for the loan for the frame now though, and the money is there for the paint. Next up, wheels!

    Get some rims painted to make it look like a GT 40.
