SURLY PUGS OP
With all of the snow we have received this past week it is time to show off another one of the fat bikes that we can get for you - The Surly Pugs Op:
Pug Ops is a mid-fat fat bike. It shares the same frame as the standard Pugsley, and it has the same non-offset fork. The fork has clearance for 4.8˝ tires on 100mm rims, it’s spaced for 135mm hubs and has cage-mounting bosses on each leg for running either standard bottle cages in a high or low position or a larger gear cage.
It isn’t just the wider rims that set it apart though. Where the standard Pugsley sports 3.8” tires on 65mm rims and the Moonlander runs 4.8” tires on 100mm rims, Pug Ops has 3.8˝ Nate tires on 82mm Rolling Darryl rims, increasing the footprint of the 3.8” tire, and thereby its float and traction, while keeping the wheel weight lower than Moonlander. Many of Pug Ops’ parts are nicer. It gets our O.D. crank with 36/22 rings, 120tpi Nate 3.8˝ tires, Shimano LX derailleurs and SLX shifters and 180/160mm front/rear rotors with all black Avid BB7 cable disc brakes. This year it comes in a beautiful olive drab color with matching rims.
Here is a picture of Tom Seiler's Pug Ops last week at the shop waiting for the commute home! These bikes have a purpose and you can use them for commuting, trails, snow, beach, and where ever else you want to ride your bike!
There are many upgrades that you can make as well so if you are interested stop by the shop and test ride one of our standard Pugsleys and if you want to go with the Pug Ops we can order you one in!
