Looking for a Pugsley to test ride on gold coast/Brisbane

Postby Cheesewheel » Thu Sep 20, 2012 8:19 pm

Or anything else with tyres around the 3.5 " + mark.

I'm thinking about getting a pugsley in the new year with suspension forks (for some serious touring) and my LBS suggested going on a test ride on a plain ol pugs before going down the road of custom jobs since the wheels are in a world of their own.

Any munificent MTB'ers in the area feel free to PM me and we can take it up from there.

I live on the gold-coast but I am willing to travel as far afield as Brisbane.

Wouldn't be looking to burn your machine down a trail or anything. I could get a taste of how things are in a park or even around a few lumpy asphalt things

many thanks
GO!! Run!!! GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!!!

I know your not in NSW but wondered if this might be of interest. Not mine. I just spotted it looking at Surly stuff on ebay after seeing your thread :D

I saw you post a heads up on this earlier but it is too far away .....however I did eventually chase down a Fat bike to test from another forum , but since then I have stumbled across recumbents ... and I think that I will have to start selling a bike before I buy another one (or start seeking professional help :| )

Shane from Just Ride at Nerabg has a Salsa Mukluk with 3.8 " tyres he has just built up.
My wife and I just scored his and hers Moonlandrs from there today.
