Recently finished building this up - Surly 1x1 frame with the brake bosses cut off and a rear derailleur (1x7 thanks to a DMR chain tug w/ mech hanger), large marge rims front and back with a 2.7 Nevegal up front and a 2.5 Nevegal in back. Got done building it the night before our first big storm....

I just saw one of those tires the other day at ReCyclery in San Rafael. I was tempted. I'm totally kicking myself for not picking up the 3.0 Nokon Gazzarras (or whatever they are called) I came across at teh swap meet a few weeks ago for $10 each. I seriously wanna try the poor man's pug thing on my cargo bike hardtail. Not sure a super big tire would fit in back, but it prolly will up front.

Checked out your extra pics . Great writeup and nice bike. I think its great to see someone tinkering and making their own custom set up. Those nevengal's must feel like a ton while spinning. I like the endo's , but the only thing keeping me from going that route is rotational weight. I ran 2.3 DH nevengals on my hard tail and hated the feel. My Endo's felt light compaired to them, and they were just 2.3's !. Keep on riding !
