Pugsley!!

Picked this up yesterday:


Pugsley 1 by paulfulford, on Flickr


Pugsley 2 by paulfulford, on Flickr

Just need to work out what I need to add to finish building it up. I was given a purple chain with it and somewhere I have an anodised purple seatpost but that may be OTT.

Neither can I - you need to open the pics up for public viewing. They are showing as 'unauthorised' atm.

Looks fun! I'm jealous, especially as someone on twitter has shown you can fit a fat tyre in my Singular Swift steel fork... :demon:

If that's the one that Sam built for the demo day then I don't think that it's a Swift fork there. There was a thread about it on MTBR but the sites down at the moment...

Just been to the shed and checked....

Whilst you can get a fat tyre (3.7" Endomorph) into a Swift fork it's such a tight fit that the wheel won't turn ???

Yeah, the Sam picture recently. This one:



Looking at it again you might be right; a different fork painted the Swift blue. Thank deity for that. I do have a DT Swiss XRR470 sitting on my office desk waiting to be fitted though, and I've also seen a picture on twentynineinches of a fat tyre in that... ::-)

I'll be very interested in how you Pugesly builds up. I live quite near a few beaches... :hand:

That's a Salsa Enabler on the Swift.

Nice Pugsley!  S/H I assume.  Would love to try a fat front on the Inbred, but it'd cost about £400 for new parts. :(

Don't even think about it! That's how I ended up with a whole fatbike! Saw the cost of a fat front end and just had a glance on eBay (just for information of course) to see if there were any fatbikes on sale. The starting price for the Pugsley (frame, fork, wheels, tyres and tubes) was only a little more. One thing then lead to another....

Chain ring
Cables
Cranks
Freewheel
Skewers
Spacers
Brakes
Levers
Headset
Pedals

Seatpost
Bars
Stem
Discs
Grips

Added as a result of this thread:
Single ring bolts

Stem cap
Star nut
Bottle cages
Chain
Bottom bracket
Seatclamp

What's missing?


*Why do they say won when you have to pay for it?

Thanks! Rather unhelpfully I left of some things that were already fitted or in my parts box ???

Won't I normally get a stem cap with the headset?

Yes, probably.

You'll need these as well: http://surlybikes.com/uploads/downloads/Pugsley_Instructions.pdf

The BB is a 100mm shell so you'll need a special (DH?) one.

Another item I helpfully omitted from the parts supplied list. Also got the instructions thanks.

No the one have is bad enough as it is ???

Are you after some of these parts? I've got a few bits that might help, including a pair of BB5 calipers, Deore brake levers, a selection of seatposts and clamps, a 16T freewheel (possibly), a selection of saddles, possibly a black Chris King 1 1/8" headset (I'm splitting my 26" On One for sale), QR skewers, some Easton 660mm riser bars...

Drop me a pm if you haven't already got all the parts you need.

Looking forward to seeing the final bike. :thumbsup:

(By the way, you mentioned trying your fat front wheel in your Swift fork. Could you measure the width of the inflated tyre for me please, I might have a new plan... :facepalm:)

Thanks - would have taken the brakes/levers but just bought some from eBay :(. What's the freewheel? It's too small for the Pugsley (I'm starting at 32:20 there) but may have a place on the Swift

Just measured, it's about 9.5 cm unladen - I don't have any calipers though, so did it by eye.

Bear in mind that as your'e running at low pressure the tyre will get wider with your weight
