    2012 surly pugs necro. who is still riding one?

    I bought mine new in 2012. I rode it almost everyday this summer came in handy with all the rain.
    I was curious if anyone is still riding this bike, I don't remember all the details about this bike. i did have xt brakes swapped out when I bought it. I just ride it. I see a lot of fat bikes on the trails now but in 2012 people asked me what the hell is that!

    Not a 2012 but a green 2016. I ride mine weekly, now set up single/dingle speed. Fun bike for putting around taking in the sights.

    Bought my black Pug at the end of 2015. Still ride it loads and love it just as much as when I first got.

    I sold my gray 2008 Pugs a few years ago. I don't regret selling it, but I do miss that bike from time to time. Surly nailed a lot of things about that bike.
    Safe riding,

    I have a friend with one.
    He rides it twice a year.
    400 yrds up the driveway and back again.
    I have been trying to buy it from him since the day he brought it home.
    He says he could never sell it. He loves that bike.

    Yep, still have my 2012 Necro. I just converted it to drop bars, and Black Floyds on 65mm carbon rims. It was the only bike I really rode for the last 6+ years until I just picked up a Trek Farley 9.6 and that is now a game changer for me. I will still keep my Pugs for commuting, the bike is amazing in every way. Here is a picture before I had a chance to put the bar tape on. 2012 surly pugs necro.  who is still riding one?-pug.jpg

    I ride a 2013 Necro. I sold my other fat bikes and kept the Pug. Such a great bike. I am looking to see about building up a Summer fat wheelset, with Rabbit Hole 26" rims. I've got 29" Rabbit Hole wheelset, but looking for something more cush.
