    Pug Ops with Tubeless Clown Shoe and Big Fat Larry

    Hi everyone. I am new here, so yell at me if I am doing anything wrong with posting here. Yesterday I put a Clown Shoe/BFL on the front of my 2014 Pug Ops, and thought I would share the images here, since I have not been able to locate any on the net (only Necromancers with the Clown Show/BFL). The rear is still the stock Rolling Darryl/Nate. Both are tubeless using the Gorilla Tape method. I had to use two strips of overlapping 3" tape for the Clown Shoe. I seen a few who had trouble seating the tubeless Clown Shoe, but I nailed it the first shot. For some reason it was easier than the Darryl/Nates, which took a few shots to seat. When I first setup the BFL on the CS, with maybe 12psi in it, it did not look much larger than the RD/Nate, but after inflating to 30psi, it got huge! Not sure if it is in my head, but I think after converting to tubeless, that it got even bigger. I should have taken some measurements before and after. I have also included an image of the stock RD/Nate on the front for comparison. Note that the Clown Shoe does not come in canvas green like the Pug Ops Rolling Darryl, so went with black. Not sure if I will keep the back in green yet or not, kinda liking the frankenbike feel with the two different rims .

    how is it holding up? I'm having trouble with mine. It holds air fine at 8 psi, but once i go lower, it leaks pretty fast along the bead of the rim. THoughts?

    Yes, as long as it comes with the Moonlander Fork and not the Offset Pugsley Fork.
