    Moonlander MWOD fit on Pugsley?

    Wondering if I can use a stock 2X ML MWOD Crankset on a Pugs.

    And if the cranks fit can I run 82mm rims with BFL's?

    I believe the spindle length is different and specific to ML, so no go.

    Yes, it will fit. I have that crankset on my Pug Ops. It came on the complete build. Both the Moonlander and Pugs have a 100mm BB shell.

    As to the tire question, I dont think there's any way you can clear anything larger than a 4" tire in the rear.

    I don't think this is correct. I believe the Moonlander has a longer spindle as stated above to account for wider chainstays. Which are wider to fit 5" tires.

    My thinking was that maybe you could fit the ML version MWOD on a Pugs and just have a wider Q factor. Not sure if the chainline would be off though.
