Haulin’ Some History
Monday, May 20, 2013
Recently, I gave a fatbike-oriented presentation. I figured some props would be helpful, so I dug around in the garage and came up with some appropriate pieces. I had to get the hardware to the office, so I attached Bill to the Big Dummy and Junk Strap'd everything in place.
* Pugsley #1...the first prototype. This was our Interbike show bike, then my geared test rig, and, eventually, my single-speed. I rode it with 26 x 3.0 Nokian Gazzaloddi tires before Endomorphs were available. That's how it was equipped when we introduced it at Interbike in 2004. I still ride it with cantilever brakes...no rotors to get bent in a derby.
* My latest Moonlander...2nd-round proto. This is my worst-case scenerio bike. It's my out-of-bounds camper/commuter/playbike.
* The Goiter. I built this rig to test the viability of using fat wheels on a unicycle. I commuted on it, ran errands on it, and went uni-camping on it.
* The Conundrum. Our discontinued fat-tired unicycle offering.
