Bike line up for 2020...

Into February, better post up off road bikes now in use,
I sold 3 non Surly Fatbikes and a Surly ECR last December to thin the fleet, and now riding two old and two good Surlys now - 3 Pugsleys in various builds and the Surly Wednesday,
The two old Pugsleys are set up and will be ridden until worn out and retired,
The Wednesday and Pugsley 2.0 have both 29+ and Fat wheels and will be the long term bikes in use and will prob see my riding days out with these steel frames lasting over 10 years i have discovered..

All my bikes are set up with tools on board, tubeless tyres, Ergon grips, low maintenance Avid BB7 brakes, low maintenance Microshift thumb shifters,  mech Gears are Shimano Zee 1x 10 speed with Sunrace 11-40t cassette - with a 22t front ring bail out gear for the odd ride in the hills,

Surly KramPug;
Medium frame with Jtek lay back seat post, 29+ wheels set up Ghetto tubeless, Shimano 8 speed internal gear hub (IGH), Steel chain rings with stainless 1/8th pitch chain, Square taper Bottom Bracket, Avid BB7 cable brakes, Thumb shifter,  FUNN 760mm bars,

Bomber low maintenance set up for night rides this now and local trails, in summer it will see harvest cycling and overgrown field boundaries  where no mech to get tangled,
Reversible wheels just in case of a mechanical...

Surly Pugsley;
Medium frame with Jtek lay back seat post, 1 x 10 gears and 4" tyres set up Ghetto tubeless wheels, full lenght `Big O Manufacturing` mudguards, BB7 brakes, Alpkit frame bags, Brooks C17 saddle, FUNN 760mm bars, and again this Pug has reversible wheels just in case of a mechanical...

Low maintenance go to Fatbike for mid week cycling after work and wet days where the full mudguards help keep you dry and clean,

Surly Pugsley 2.0;
2019 Size large Pugsley 2.0 which fits larger 100mm Surly Clown shoe rims and  4.7: Surly BFL tyres - these are same size as new 4.4" tyres,  Also a set of Surly Rabbit Hole 29+ wheels ready to bot straight in with Maxxis Chronicle tyres. 1 x 10 gears with bail out 22t front ring, Alpkit mudguards, Alpkit saddle rail for saddle bag, Surly (Revelate)  frame bag, Brooks C17 saddle, Microshift thumb shifter, FUNN 760mm bars - also have a pair of narrower Nitto Moose bars for long bike packing trips,

Weekend and summer Ridged beach bike with Fat wheels and with 29+ wheels a ridged trail bike and bike packing rig...

Surly Wednesday;
29+ Halo wheels with Bontrager `Chupachabra 3" tyres which along with the the fat wheels have discs and cassette ready to bolt straight on,  Rock Shox Bluto 100mm travel suspension fork,  Rock Shock Revelate dropper seat post, Sram cranks with Hope bearing converter cups and Hope Bottom Bracket, Alpkit saddle rail for bike packing saddle bag,
Fat wheels are Halo hubs on DT Swiss BR710 rims with Schwalbe Jumbo Jim tyres - 4.4" rear, and 4.8" up front, 180 front 160 rear brakes, old Epic design frame back, Alpkit fuel pod tank bag and mudguards, FUNN 785mm wide bars,

Hooligan bike for out of the saddle riding with 29+ wheels - my mountain bike,  with fat wheels fitted a very confident bike for Rock Crawling and riding technical stuff where the dropper  post comes in handy and the forks soak up big hits...

Ready to roll on the coast and trails....
