    2 Wheel SUV

    I just got my Pug all built up and man is it a blast. On my maiden ride through the desert I played with tire pres. and ended up at 10psi for float in the soft sand. This thing floats over everything. I think I ran over a soccer mom and her baby jogger but I can't confirm it. I was worried the bike wouldn't be that great on hardpack but it is good. All in all this thing is a blast to ride. Now all I have to do is wait for the snow.

    The Build: Pug frame and fork, Salsa bars, Ritchey stem and post, Brooks saddle, Race Face crank, Avid discs, P. Wood huds (one single speed and one 9spd with spacers to keep my options open), Surly offset rims (The wheels are kind of a pain to build with the 17.5mm offset), Crank bros. pedals.

    Nice! I will have to talk you into a test ride when I come over.

    Are you going to get the Ectomorph tires?

    Anytime Shiggy. A few of us are going to do a midnight first run on flagline if you can make it over for a good ride. It will be a shuttle ride from Dutchmans flat back to town starting at 12am on the 15th. I'm comming down to your neck of the woods on sunday if you want to do a ride? See you soon. Shawn

    I am planning on riding Flagline with Nat on the 15th (daylight). May bring the "new" Big Shot < http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=119850 >.

    Are you going to be over here this Sunday (Aug 7)? I could ride. What are you thinking of?

    The night ride is a yearly thing. I guess I could do it in the day also. I think I will be there this sunday around lunch time for some riding.

    I am probably not up to doing both the night ride and day ride.

    Planning on racing the DH at Willamette Pass on Sunday and driving over to Bend that night.

    Nat is talking about riding from town for the Flagline ride. Link to his thread below.

    couple Qs

    How heavy is it?

    Will it fit 29er tires?

    what kind of gas mileage does it get?

    Ok then: What's the curb weight?

    Seriously. It can't be that bad if he's toting it around in a Caddy.

    What spoke lengths did you end up running and did you use brass or alloy nips? Thanks!
