Pugsley Kuskokwim River Kruzer Miss Pugsley 'work-bike'...getting the layup standardized...~3/4 the way there!
Surly racks are bombproof, great hardware, a little heavy but nothing a sawsall couldn't fix to modify the surly rear for the front...sealed the cuts with clear enamel nail-polish!
Single Paul Touring canti works well, more than adequate for beach and river riding ...it's simple...key was retro-ing w/a salsa wide hanger - which changes the width and pull angle and enables plenty clearance.
Doug White Duo Freewheel 17/19 is ideal - bravo primo Americano...but need a chaintensioner to make manual gear switching convenient...will add one this week.
Jones Bar...goes full-tilt w/o saying! Once you use one....!
SURLY NEEDS (thus far):
bottle braze-ons 'under' the downtube for litre fuel / water bottle hanger...every serious fatbiker I know is using a framebag in the main triangle for expeditioning - it's really the only way to go, so use of inside brazeons is limited!
access to rack braze-ons (esp near the head of the fork) are limited...need to move them out-board a/o have some longer bolts and poly spacers...especially for retrofit centering on the pugs offset frameset.
some good options for a cablestop for the cantis (esp the rear).
to get Phil Wood to make a 'real' bottom bracket for the Pugs shell...;)
