    Don't go changing...I love you just the way you are....

    With all the new stuff coming out she thought perhaps I was looking to upgrade...Just had to give me Pugs a little hug and kiss, sang her some Billy Joel. She's not going anywhere, I love me Pugs just the way she is. OK maybe she wants a new pair of shoes, what woman doesn't?

    I agree. I'm just now getting to know my Pugs, but I don't think I want anything bigger than a 4" tire. I know most of you will scream blasphemy, but hey, everyone has their opinions. I'm thinking some new tires, some frame bags, and show the original some love this winter.

    Who knows, maybe after I see one in the flesh, I may come to fall in love again with the Moonlander, but I'd also like to see what other offerings come out for 2012.

    I've got a set of new Black FLoyds on the way for my Mukluk. I don't even have any winter riding in on mine yet, so no idea what I do or don't want to change.

    What is this "cassette" device you speak of?
    In the time before time, long before the arrival of what we consider to be "fatbikes", our ape ancestors rode astride two wheeled creations of granite. Each wheel was a tire as well and is said to have been 10 grunts "fat", or a foot wide. These "apemen" fashioned together mammoth vertebrae, creating a multi-toothed device called "Ugg" which we know of today as the cassette. This invention allowed these beasts to almost nearly outrun some of earths ancient predators, like the giant sloth, by pedaling under their own power and not forcing the whole ape clan to push the ancient bike.

    Truly ancient technology.

    Hey PugsleyLvr,

    If you want thumb shifters you could go with shimano bar end shifters on Paul Thumbies. That's what I'm doing on my build that hopefully should be complete this next week. I already had the bar end shifters sitting around, so it was an obvious choice.

    I know, but they're kinda pricey. I'm attempting to choose low cost, but effective upgrades. I'm looking toward Sram "ATTACK" grip shifters with X0 grips instead. May still spring for thumbies though. I loooove 'em.

    No upgrading for me ( if that's what you call it ) No need or desire for a moon lander or clown shoes. If my Pugs can't get me there I don't need to go

    Did I mention I love my Pugs just the way it is

    The Nate weighs ~300gms more than a 3.8 Larry. Even on wet rocks I never have felt the need for more traction on trails, I doubt I'll add almost 1.5lbs to the wheels/tires to fix a problem I don't have. More float in the snow might be nice but my big snow issue was front wheel washout and slipping on ice, not lack of float. I wonder if the Nate or Huskur-Du will help fix that?

    Now I'm not so sure. After seeing a close up of the "Space" paint job, I'm re-thinking my decision to not upgrade. But either way, I won't be getting rid of the Pugs. I'll keep her happy with some new shoes I just purchased (Nates) and a frame bag so she can accessorize.
