Surly Pugsley 2018

Previously a great all-around fat bike, the Surly Pugsley bike has been redesigned to be the ultimate off-road touring and exploration rig.

Maximalist off-road tourists, explorers looking to get off the beaten path, and survivalists for whom being stranded isn’t an option will all appreciate Pugsley’s wider footprint, longer and more stable wheelbase, and plethora of accessory mounts…

Way back in twenty-aught-three, we found ourselves tired of riding over the same old sorts of terrain. We wanted to go over there but the trail only went over here.

We wanted to go for long rides on the beach. We wanted to get our float on in the winter. It was quite the Conundrum. Seeing as there wasn’t a bike that could do all those things, we made one. Thus, the Pugsley was born and set free unto the world to wreak havoc on previously unridden territory.

Since that time, the Pugsley (and fat bikes in general) have evolved quite a bit. So, allow us to re-introduce you to Pugsley.

In the rear, Pugsley now more closely resembles the rest of our dirt touring models with a few quirks of its own. It has a 142 x 12mm rear dropout with a dedicated Rohloff torque arm slot.

While the complete bike rolls on our Edna 26 x 4.3” tires and a full 1×11 drivetrain, the rear will clear a full 26 x 4.8” if you use a wider Q-factor crank and are ok with some drivetrain limitations.
