I decided to take the plunge and get a Pugsley too. After I road Matt's pug (from Alpha Bicycle Company) I had to get one. So far I have only treated the frame with frame saver. The parts are at the shop and I'm just waiting on rims. Here is what the build will be:

16" Pugs
70mm Speedway rims w/ DT DB spokes, brass nipples, XT rear, Surly front hub
Endo tires. Snow camo tape to fill in the rim holes
Thomson seatpost and stem
Brooks B17 narrow
Jones/Titec H-bar, ESI grips, Ruffwrap tape
XTR levers, Paul Thumbies
Jagwire ripcord cables
Chris King dreadset
King cages
Origin 8 cranks, FSA Platnum BB
LX Front, XT rear
Crank Bros Mallets
Old Man Mountain rack

Will post more pics when complete.

Nice build spec :thumbsup:

Surly should fit the frame with an addiction warning sticker.............

Once you`ve ridden one, you just want MORE ! :)

the sticker should say, warning you will never need to buy an expensive bicycle to have fun again.
Or:-
TIME TRAVEL WARNING !

THIS BIKE WILL TURN YOU INTO A 10yr OLD !

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I work just down the street from Alpha, small world. His pug is pretty sweet (and light). I saw it in the shop the a few weeks ago, and I've been doing nothing but dreaming about snow ever since. I'm still waiting on mine, but expect to have it rocking by early November.
