    Where have all the Pugsley gone?

    7 left in size 20" at QBP, so quite a few sold. Who's building one up? Even if it's geared, show it please!

    Looks like tires will retail for ~$85(30tpi) and ~100(60tpi) each
    DH rims $100-110
    XC rims $150-160
    Tubes $12
    Rim strips $4-5
    Framesets sub-$600

    Obviously, I regard the Pusgley concept the very last and ultimate attempt for the 26" movement to resist the inevitable world domination of the 29" wheel. But man, I want one soooo bad!

    Are the offset drilled rims available yet? The blog says they are "required".

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I don't think the rims are in yet, but at least the frames are out to dealers already.

    I'm not sure a 700c snow tire would be heavier. Sure the same width rim, longer spokes etc make for a heavier wheel, but a larger-diameter wheel may not require the same tire width for the same amount of float/speed. Slightly narrower tires can be quite a bit lighter. 700c x 3.0" snow tires, hmmmm....
    But first a Pugsley! (it might even fit a 700c x 3.0)

    The rims will be in stock next week. I have a pair coming for a guy. As for the bikes, you do need the offset rims to make them work. I've tried the normal rims in the Pugsley frame, and the dish on the wheel would be just extreme. The normal Large Marge rims will only work in a Surly 1x1 frame. I have one of those in the works, with the rims laced to the limited edition hub set. It's going to be pretty fun. The 1x1 will fit a 2.6 Gazzolodi just fun front and rear, and we're going to try and fit the 3.0's. The Pugsley tires have not come in stock either. So, for a full tilt, all inclusive Pugsley report, you'll have to wait a while. I'll post a report on the 1x1 conversion when I get it done.
