This Surly Neck Romancer Pug bike is a fatter-tire version of the iconic Pugsley. The larger tire print offers increased traction and flotation for romancing stones, sticks, sand and snow.
Bigger, fatter 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
TIG-welded 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
Surly MWOD double cranks are matched up with Shimano derailleurs and Microshift shifters to create a smooth, easily shiftable 18-gear drivetrain (even with gloves on!)
Horizontal dropouts with a derailleur hanger mean you can run the Neck Romancer Pug 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
82mm wide Surly Rolling Darryl rims are outfitted with a 3.8 in. Surly Larry front tire for good steering and 3.7 in. Surly Nate rear tire for good traction
Also includes 2 water bottle mounts and continuous brake/shift housing to protect cables in harsh conditions
The Neck Romancer Pug also has rack and fender eyelets (rack and fenders not included—please note: rack and fenders will need to accommodate oversize tires)
