This year, we offer you an alternative to the standard Pugsley. The Black Ops 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. Everything is black…except the chain. Where the standard Pugsley sports 65mm-wide Large Marge double-wall rims, the Black Ops 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 Black Ops Pug is available as a complete bike and as a frame without a fork. Choose from our three 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.
