"Pugsley - 2012"
Bentley Cycle is now a Surly Bicycle dealer, if we don't have your Surly in stock we will specail order it for you!
By now you know that Pugsley was created to go where standard “all terrain” bikes flounder. The floatation and traction afforded by large-volume, low-pressure tires
can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain…sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice and many kinds of snow.
The Pugsley frame has 135mm-spaced horizontal rear-loading dropouts with a derailleur hanger. This means you can set it up with a derailleured drivetrain or an internally-geared hub.
Run it with a singlespeed freewheel or a fixed cog. You have lots of drivetrain choices.
The stock fork accepts a 135mm rear mountain hub, just like the frame. This makes it easier to install and remove the wheel (a big tire on a big rim benefits from a wide opening), and it allows
front and rear wheel interchangeability. This means you can have the ability to carry another full gear cluster, a singlespeed freewheel, or a fixed cog on the front wheel. And should something
go wrong with your primary drivetrain, you have the option of swapping wheels and continuing on your journey or retreating to a place where you can make necessary repairs.
In addition to the frameset, we offer the Pugsley as a complete bike. It features Large Marge rims with Larry and Endomorph tires, plus a nice mix of components chosen for their
durability and value.
"Pugsley - 2013"
"Necromancer - 2013"
This year, we offer you an alternative to the standard Pugsley. The Neck Romancer Pugsley is the stealth bomber in our fleet. The frame and fork are black with
subtle black and gray decals. The rims are black. The spokes are black. Almost everything is black. But this bike isn't just an alternate color version of the standard
Pugsley. Where the standard Pugsley sports 65mm-wide Large Marge double-wall rims, the Neck Romancer utilizes our 82mm-wide single-wall Rolling Darryl rims to
expand its tire footprint, increasing its traction and all-terrain floatation. The increase in rim width puts the tire closer to the chain, so to avoid chain rub we spec’d this
bike with our MWOD rings on a Mr. Whirly crankset. This provides all the chain/tire clearance necessary while retaining low- and mid-range gearing for crawling
through the sticky and flying under the radar. The Neck Romancer Pug is available as a complete bike (with a Moonlander fork) and as a frame, no fork. Choose the
right one for you from our fat bike fork offerings…or pick something else (there are a few non-Surly options out there) and build up your ride to suit your specific needs.
"Moonlander - 2013"
Years ago, our Pugsley’s 3.8" Endomorph tires and 65mm-wide Large Marge rims introduced the cycling world to new riding possibilities. Our big tires,
run at low pressures, get you over terrain that is difficult or impossible to ride on a ‘regular’ bike. That original Pugsley tire/rim format certainly changed the
game, but there are places and conditions that beg for a larger tire footprint. So, to satisfy our cravings for increased traction action, we introduced the
82mm-wide Rolling Darryl rim. Darryl spreads out the tire more than Marge does, effectively presenting more tread to the trail and adding traction potential.
Bigger can be better.
Not wanting to be limited to using the 82mm rim/3.8" tire combo (the largest recommended for the Pugsley), we decided that it was time to raise the bar
and develop higher-volume tires, wider rims and a frame to accommodate them. So, this year, we offer you the Big Fat Larry 4.7" tire, the 100mm-wide
Clown Shoe rim and, of course, the Moonlander frameset. Like all of our framesets, the Moonlander is made of Surly 4130 CroMoly steel. It features
135mm-spaced, 28mm-offset, rear-loading Surly horizontal dropouts (track ends) with a derailleur hanger…meaning you can set it up as a singlespeed or
geared bike, derailleured or internally geared. The bottom bracket height gives you clearance for bushwhacking and monster-trucking. The dropped and
gusseted top tube maximizes standover height. And the tallish headtube allows you to set your rig up with a comfortable riding position for those long
days grinding out miles in the saddle.
Moonlander’s fork measures 447mm axle-to-crown...same as the Pug, so all of our fat forks are interchangeable between the two models. The disc mount
allows you to use a front disc brake caliper with a 135mm O.L.D. rear hub…or with a 135mm-spaced Surly front hub. Mid-blade thru-eyelets and lower
rack barrels are included for installing fenders and racks. We offer the Moonlander as a frameset and as a complete bike. The complete bike components
were chosen for their durability and their suitability to the task at hand. We chose thumbshifters because they allow you to shift even when wearing mittens.
To accommodate the Clown Shoe rim/Big Fat Larry tire spec, the frame design pushes the chainline even farther outboard than that of the Pugsley. So we
spec’d Moonlander with our new MWOD crank system. The MWOD (Mr. Whirly Offset Double) ditches the big ring and moves the middle and granny
ring outboard. The 2 x 9 drivetrain offers the gear ratios most applicable to a bike of this type while avoiding chain/tire interference. Works like a charm.
If you’ve ever wanted a little more float and traction to get you over the hills and through the woods to Grandmother’s House of Ill Repute and Freestyle
Taxidermy, consider the Moonlander.
