    MWOD Moonlander crankset

    Since the SURLY MWOD Moonlander crank has a 14mm longer spindle than the MWOD Pugs version, would it matter if I used it on a pugs? Other than increasing the q factor, is there an issue? Is it going to stick way out on one side? We''re only talking about 14mm about 1/2 inch, but that could be goofy.

    Trying to come up with a decent crankset solution and Pugs MWOD are not available yet unless I buy the old Mr. Whirly and new MWOD chainring set (antoher $100) and make my own. Looking at a $400+ crank set at that point!

    You could check into Fatbacks new crankset, I think that one is $250.

    Talk to Ben Witt @ Milltown Cycles about the Origin8 crankset. Much cheaper and it seems to accomplish similar results, all without using the overly complicated/heavy Whirly crank.

    Thanks.

    I had come across this Milltown Cycles: Mukluks and 4.7" tires. but it looks like the Origin 8 crank has 29 and 44 tooth sprockets. I need a granny gear. Will the inner ring spot take a 22? Form other pics looks like the outer can obviusly take a 32, etc.

    On the blog he does say: "On the 2012 Mukluks you'll of course need a ISIS splined BB, and 22t and 32t cogs if you wish.This is of course all doable with a MWOD, these are just available now, are less expensive, and will require less changes to stock Mukluks to make this work. So, I suppose you can. Origin 8's website is horrible for info.

    There's Ben's bike with the Origin8 crank with 32/22 rings.

    Thanks for the help. You guys on the fatbike forum are great.

    Think I'll try the O8. I'll post my experience for others to learn from.
