Large and in charge, the Surly Pugsley bike features super-fat wheels to conquer sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice, and many kinds of snow, making it a hugely versatile adventure touring bike.
Big, fat tires provide lots of flotation, more ground contact and better traction, especially when run at low pressures, allowing the tires to ride over the top of stuff
Frame is made of sturdy 4130 chromoly steel with double-butted tubing in the main triangle for strength
Fork uses 135mm hub spacing—same as the rear hub—so you can have a front wheel with a full gear cluster or single cog and swap the front and rear wheels in a bind
Triple Truvativ cranks are matched up with Shimano derailleurs and shifters to create a smooth, easily shiftable drivetrain with 27 adventure-hungry gears
Horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger mean you can run the Pugsley as-is, or go to an internally geared hub, fixie or single-speed later on
Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes facilitate controlled deceleration and sure stopping power in mixed conditions
Finer details include 2 water bottle mounts and guides for continuous brake/shift housing to protect cables in harsh conditions
The Pugsley also has rack and fender eyelets (rack and fenders sold separately—please note, rack and fenders will need to accommodate oversize tires)
Specs on the Surly Pugsley bike are subject to change
After its initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
