To compliment our demo Mukluks, we now have a Surly Moonlander available for demo at the shop. It is an 18". Decked out Gaddo style with white rim strips and white cable housing it's quite the looker.
Chainrings differ slightly from the stock Moonlander ones. This bike sports the lower gearing 33t/20t MWOD chainring offerings.
This build uses slightly different thumb shifters than the stock bike as well. These XT seven speed shifters have been waiting around for a project just like this on. They work wonderfully for this application.
The front shifter required a little work. The bolt had been stripped out who knows how long ago. By drilling straight through the body, tapping the remaining portion, and flush filing a longer bolt the shifter was saved from the junk bin. This new set up offers many more threads engaged at the clamp. The small silver dot next to the shifter is the flush fit bolt. Slick
These are great bikes. With the current set up, and with the new super huge Bud and Lou tires coming, the Moonlander offers super float and crawling ability above and beyond that of a standard fatbike. Come check out if this bike's for you today!
