surprised nobody's brought up the drivetrain; 4 cogs & 2 chainrings all on a single speed? can you explain this please? - doesn't it throw off chainline? & isn't it more work to remove the front wheel for access than carrying the spares with? would it make more sense to find a more common ground in tooth profile between all your sizes?

Sure, the fork is designed to run a rear wheel. Same hub spacing, wheel offset, disk brake spacing, everything. So the front and rear wheels are swappable with a few turns of a wrench.

I've got two wheelsets for this bike, an Alfine 8/fixed wheelset, and a paul hub SS/fixed wheelset. The Alfine 8 wheelset is self explanatory, the fixed cog up front is the same size as the Alfine cog (22t). The SS wheelset is setup as a double-double, or dinglespeed. 30x22 for a low gear, 32x20 for a cruising gear. Same 22 fixed cog up front of course.

The designer of the original Pugsley wanted these features for security, when you're riding way out in remote areas, in inclement weather, so you're not stranded in the event of hub failure. I think its a sweet idea, just for sheer customizations sake.
