    Moonlander compatibility

    100mm rims fit fine but I'm pretty certain 4 1/2 tires aren't going to fit in my pugsley frame, correct?

    Good thing I just got that promotion, huh?

    Makes sense with the fatter tires and a 2x9 (or 2x10?) drivetrain. Doubt a symmetrical wheel would give enough clearance for that fat a tire and a full cassette.

    Offset crank

    I believe they mention an offset crank in combo with the frame and wheel.
    Sounds pretty interesting...

    Didn't realize that they shrunk it for their blog.... I tried clicking, but not right clicking to view it. Usually just left click to enlarge if they are kind enough to embed it like that.

    I have a habit of opening pictures in another tab. It makes it easy for me to toggle back and fourth between the picture and the text.

    I like the tread on the front tire, wonder if it is the Big Fat Larry? Would love to have that tread on my bike now.

    Definitely. I'd imagine the moonlander set up is going to carry a considerable price tag, however it will also set a new standard.
    It seems necessary items to buy include frame, crankset, tires and possibly rims. Other parts could transfer I'm assuming. I wonder what rear hub it takes? 170mm?

    With that absurd offset and super wide rims, I'm wondering if they kept 135mm rear dropouts.

    I just hope this doesn't obsolete the Pug and under 4" tires for those of us who've already invested!

    Just looking at that pic again.

    If that's a 135mm fork, that's one seriously fat tyre, but the fact he's not pedalling suggests we need even wider...

    looks like a 100mm fork to me. Could this be the Black Floyd? looks like a great rear tire for more grip.

    So is the new standard going to be BFL in front with Floyd in back?

    I hope all the new carbon forks from fatback and white brothers work with the 4.5 tire.

    That's what I thought at first, but the tubes of that fork look like they go straight up and down like the 135mm fork, where the 100mm fork curves out a bit.

    Due to the application I bet it'll have the same dropouts too. That's another thing I don't like. I want vertical dropouts. I just want to the be the only one with the big tires. Blarg.

    Look at the head tube and the fork blades.

    http://www.surlybikes.com/blog/ says:
    You’ll also be pleased to know that the fork (symmetrical blades, no offset) operates using a 135mm hub but unlike the Pug fork will use a front disc caliper adapter.

    From the surly blog post;

    These things induced palpitations in a small group of bike nerds and questions began immediately to percolate. “Is it what we think it is?” the nerds asked hopefully.
    That will be us lot then ,
    I have to admit to be happy being a nerd when a bike like this is coming...

    The hub in the photo also looks like a DT front hub, judging by the red label on it.

    SO stoked I went 170 symmetrical with ample clearance for more than the current crop, on my new build....

    Thank you Surly.

    I'm kinda curious about the big guns myself. I ride my Pug on the beach regularly but where I live, at the edge of the water, the beach can sometimes be a loose mound of shells. Even at lower pressures, I often end up grinding in first or second gear (the frequent 20mph headwind doesn't help in this regard...), and end up having to jump off and walk sometimes when I run into steep wave-made mounds or walls of a foot or more in height and loose. Will wait eagerly to hear Velo's report on bog running with these!

    Rig up the first as a commuter, but of course you need a recreational bike too!
