Surly Pugsley

After owning a different Pugsley a couple of years ago, I wasn’t sure I’d own another one. But I guess you never know…

Almost on a whim — though not quite — I hunted up the frameset and the wheels on eBay, raided the parts bin for a few things, and bought the rest at Revolution Cycles, who also took care of putting it all together.

Unlike the last one, this one actually fits me. It’s called “The Ox.” (Note: both photos are out of date, but it looks more like the second one than the first).
