    Somedays I just wanna hug my fatbike!

    6 weeks into owning a Pugs, I dropped it off for a checkup today and nearly cried at the empty space left in my garage.

    I rode 10 miles before dropping it off and loved every second! Why the heck is a fat bike so dang fun???!!!!

    I literally smile from ear to ear the whole time I am on it. And I have been known to give the tires a squeeze as I walk by it to get into my car.

    I hate winter but man, I can't wait for the snow to start flying!

    Now if your Pug had ears and a vagina, it would know how you really feel.

    Nothing wrong at all with being a lesbian and a fat biker.

    I guess if you take the wheels and seat off, a Pug has 7 girl friendly parts.

    Glad you are loving your Pug NBT

    Fat bikes do make you smile so much that your face actually does ache afterwards

    Pugsley's are like people, soft and squishy in some spots, but stiff in just the right places, and they make you smile when you ride them

    He said Tuesday near closing unless they find an issue. Seems pretty straightforward on the tuneup and I'm not having them cut the fork, I'm keeping the spacers ontop. That way if I decide to go with a suspension fork, my Moonie fork will be more resellable since it can fit the larger sized Pugs & Moonies. If I cut it, it can only fit another 16".
    I clued him in on my tight BB/crank, he didn't think it was anything major and that might be the only thing that would delay the pickup if it wasn't just grass wound up in there or needing grease.

    Oh, they actually had an orange Muk with Nates on it in stock!!! Too big for me(looked about like your 19 Beth!) and I love my all black Necro. But it is cool to see other fatbikes.

    Homerdrool on the orange Mukluk. LOL. Bikes will always be n+1.

    Glad you decided not to cut down the fork.

    ^^^^^nice indeed! I have those Brooks washer grips on my 1974 Duke Terd fixie! Love those things!

    I loved the hammock swing TT Surly did in the 2005-6 line, I seriously would sell my oldest child to get a small frame of that model BD!

    My Necro Pug needed grease on the bb bearings very soon after I purchased it. Since I lubed it all up I haven't had an issue in a few months.

    Mukluk 2's and 3's are in stock at my LBS (or they were in stock yesterday, probably all sold out by now ):
