By now you know that Pugsley was created to go where standard ‘all terrain’ bikes flounder. The floatation and traction afforded by large-volume, low-pressure tires can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain, such as sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice, and many kinds of snow. Wide, low-pressure tires are easier than standard tires on whatever terrain you pass over because they don’t dig in as easily.

The Pugsley frame has horizontal rear dropouts with a derailleur hanger. You can set it up with derailleurs or an internally geared hub, or set it up as a singlespeed or fixed-gear. This isn’t just a nice option. In certain situations, extra weight and the potential for a complex part to fail isn’t just a pain. It can be deadly serious business. The stock fork accepts a 135mm rear mountain hub, just like the frame. This makes it easier to install and remove the wheel (a big tire on a big rim benefits from a wide opening), but more to the point also allows front and rear wheel interchangeability. This means you can have another full gear cluster, a singlespeed or a fixed-gear wheel option should something go wrong with your freehub body or derailleurs. In other words, it’s one more option for getting you back out from whatever situation you’ve gotten yourself into.

We have until now offered the Pugsley only as a frameset, but we’re now offering a complete bike option. Like our other complete bike models, it sports a nice mix of components chosen for their durability, affordability, and suitability to the task at hand, which is to say it’ll get you out there, off the beaten path, and back under your own power, hopefully with enough extra cash to buy a round at the bar when you’re done. Cheers to that.
