Surley Pugsley Complete Big Tire Bikes where created to go where standard 'all terrain' bikes flounder thanks to their large-volume, low-pressure tires. The difference between these large tires and standard tires is that they can get you over and through otherwise unrideable terrain, such as sand, mud, wet rocks and roots, ice, and many kinds of snow.
Before the Surley Pugsley was only available as a frameset, but we're now comes in a complete bike option. Another cool feature on this bike are the horizontal rear dropouts with a derailleur hanger. You can set it up with derailleurs or an internally geared hub, or set it up as a singlespeed or fixed-gear. "This isn't just a nice option. In certain situations, extra weight and the potential for a complex part to fail isn't just a pain." Overall, the Pugsley Complete sports a nice mix of components chosen for their durability, affordability, and suitability. Look for it to be out late October 2010.
