Word on the street says the '10 Pugsley frame—yeah, the new one with the dropped TT and the Baby Poop Curry color—isn't droppin' until January 11th. But (here comes the big but), we've already heard one dude across the pond (UK) who says his arrived.

Nice to be him.

How about you? Got yours yet? If so, post some pix!

Last thing: my money (what very little I have) says this batch is gonna go QUICKLY. And, word has it that this batch is it for the year...

Normbilt: getting a similar report from the LBS that ordered mine—that they're going fast.

So, this means you ordered it? Riding it on TOSRV? That would be funny!
Hey man! Was wondering if you would notice... :) Yes, I ordered it. Not TOSRV...using it for a sprint triathlon in May. Seriously. And you can bet your sweet patootie that I'll be whippin' on some carbon Nancys, too.

Glad you're getting one built! I dig the new frame but not the colors. If I hadn't just built mine I'd consider replacing the frame.
I actually like the color, but...I think she's headed for the stripdown and recoat. Might get out of the Full Darkness kick and get funky with the color...

dropping the top-tube on the new one makes me wonder about swapping out my 16" frame for an 18" one.

Actually that is just on my list of things to wonder about, I don't think it makes my list of things to do, which is pretty long.

... it needs a trip to the powder coaters. Any color you like... as long as its on the chart.

i dig the new color. i picked up my frame in August-ish, so i am a gray guy. i like the gray too. i like that it is somewhat 'menacing' with the black spokes (i insisted and got them special ordered from my main LBS), black hubs, black saddle, black pedals, black bartape/grips, thomson stem, thomson seatpost, black cranks/rings/bash ring, and black paul melvin.
i would like to get the frame painted flat black someday....someday.
i want all my bikes to be black with black components. i don't know why. just feels good.

i think the new color would contrast well with black components.
one consideration i haven't heard mentioned much is the ability to get a frame pack in the new frame. looks like there is some room, but it may be a custom job? i kinda prefer the 'classic-ness' of the old frame, but yeah, i have come pretty close to mashing the boys more than once. not a matter of if, but when.

We share a love for the Darkness. Behold, the Mangoman Family Fleet:



That said, I'm really hoping I can break away on the Pugs build and do something besides Jet Black. Frame's due tomorrow...and I need to make a quick~ish decision...

sweet dude. that's the first i have time i have seen 'monster trucker' before the trekking bars. i am thinking about giving my lht a good dark coat of paint on down the line. i originally liked truckacino, but it hasn't aged 'well' since i bought it a year ago. when i get the 29er wheelset for the pugs, i may end up selling the lht.
i just got my wife a black CC and she wants to get it stripped and clear coated. sounds sweet. i might copy her on that when i get my CC in a couple years.
