hey Vik. Great photos of the Pug. How has it handled so far? Thinking about getting one myself.

The Pugsley was awesome. We had a ton of fun and rode everything from sandy beaches to rocky tracks and paved roads to mudflats.

I’ve spent a lot of time in Baja previously and the Pugsley has opened up a huge potential for fun and exploration that wasn’t possible on a normal MTB or on foot.

Both Kurt and I kept kicking ourselves for not buying Pugsleys sooner.

Hey Vik. Thanks for the response. One more question. Did you ever think of getting a 29 bike? It seems the bigger wheels would accomplish the same thing. I have been told that you could make the Pug into a 29. Thoughts? Your site has been very helpful to me in a number of ways(building my BD, soon to have Tiket and maybe the Pug or Karate Monkey). Thanks again!

I don’t think a 29er would be much better than a 26er MTB for soft conditions. The beauty of the Pugsley is the 3.7″ tires which are on a 26″ rim, but are the same diameter as a 29er.

You can use 29er rims/tires on a Pugsley which makes it quite versatile, but personally I have no desire for a 29er MTB. I’ll ride a 26er MTB for my normal mountain bike missions and use the Pugsley for soft conditions.

If I was going on a long trip and wanted to bring one frame I might get a set of 29er wheels made up for the Pug so I don’t have to haul around two bikes. That would make sense, but in that case it’s not that I’m after a 29er it just happens to be what works on the Pugsley. A 2.1″-2.4″ 26er tire/wheel on a Pug would be too low and you’d get pedal clearance issues.

I’ve long harboured a desire to get a Pug – this post serves only to strengthen that lust! Great pics.
