    Trek Fatbike?

    Trekworld is in town this week, and we've had a sighting. No idea whether it's production, skunk works, or even a Trek, but there it is. I'll keep an eye open and my camera charged...

    I see cruiser styling, a chain guard, no brake levers, maybe internal hub with coaster brake?

    Sun Bicycles - Product

    I've test rode the Sun bike and it's kind of shoddy workmanship. The stem could not be tightened enough to keep it from slipping. After chatting with the bike mechanics at the shop where I work the shoddiness of Sun was confirmed. The tolerances of the parts they use are not very good.

    Sure looks like a Pug to me. Near horizontal TT, offset fork, and tons of braze on's. Great photo.

    That yellow one is a Spider. I sat on one at the LBS here in Miami. Sat pretty nice. Had a 2 speed auto hub with coaster brake on it though.

    No, the yellow one is a Tommisea Terrain Destroyer or sand cruiser:
    Products | EZ BEACH Attachments

    The tires are Spyders

    But check this out their fat tire trailer:



    And here is the original pic



    Doesn't look anything like a Pugs to me.

    I guess there's a more pertinent thread now, but yeah, that's not a Pug. Also, that's not the pic I saw when I clicked a few days ago.

    Looks like a Sunn Spider to me... Custom painted yeller, or the new color this year is yeller.

    Well - turns out it is indeed a Trek, but just a concept at this time:

    It is similar to the Sunn spider:

    But the yellow one posted here is absolutely a Tommisea Terrain Destroyer
