Here is my newly built Surly Pugsley.

Tried saving money on some things by reusing from other projects, but all in all I am pretty happy with the ride.

Thanks, yeah i have looked at the PDW racks. I was wondering if they would be compatible with Disc and the Pug. Do you have any idea?

well, i think you could mount it the same way people have mounted the nice rack to the pug. i believe they shift it so that one of the 'legs' of the rack is mounted to the inside of the rack-mount on the seatstay and the other is on the outside of the seatstay. like this: https://flic.kr/p/2785454019
the nice rack has extending 'legs' however, so that might be why it works. from the looks of the photos, the pdw rack has pretty long 'arms' (where it connects at the top of the seatstays) that look similar to the nice rack. so i am thinking that height maybe the issue, but i could be very wrong.
i am looking at the omm red rock rack to put on my pugs, since it is somewhat inexpensive, light, and stout. my pug is already going to weigh a ton, so I am going to steer away from the nice rack this time (have one on my LHT, a great rack).
