No, I wanted a Surly Pugsly but for that money I would get another motorcycle. This is a Walmart bike that I painted the rims and after a few rear sprocket changes, I have it where I want it.

This is a Mongoose Beast. A cheap bike that I don't mind getting a little rusty riding at low tide.

Oh man, tell me how you did it. I have wanted a fatty for quite a few years. Price held me back. I do have an S.A.S.S for pure exercise fun, and my race mountain bike I built up on a litespeed frame I got cheap because the local bike shop couldn't sell it.

It is so easy, change the rear sprocket to a 22 tooth, on Ebay for $5. add 1 link to the chain and you are riding in the sand. it is also a lot of fun in the snow.

Yes, there are plenty of bad reviews but I've had mine for quite a while and really like it. The tires are heavy, my next mod is to get the Surly tubes and tires, they are 2 pounds lighter!

It is not for everyone but if you do a few mods it is a lot of fun. Be prepared for the huge front tire to want to fall into turns, I am well used to that. I want to put wider bars on it.

Saw this guy on the beach this morning. I feel bad for him but it it is now flat calm and blowing off shore. He should get pulled off pretty easy on the next tide.

Fat bottomed girls, you make the rocking world go round.

I like it. I built my Mt. bike for sand use living on the coast but I kinda want one of those too now. Thanks for sharing the mod you did.

You would think, in this modern day and age I could find one within 100 miles of 46825. Heck, I'm on vacation next week with no plans....

Can't find a Beast, Dozer, or Brutus. This can't be right. Somehow instant gratification has to be possible. Not sure if I should thank you or curse you Ebbanflood. :D

Yep, got that option. Walmart is near by, and the distribution center is close too...and I still gotta wait until next Friday? Wrong. Gotta be a way. I'm a tenacious guy. Vacation would be over.

Sorry for the confusion, it comes with an 18 tooth and I put on a 22. I edited my post to correct that. It is the sprocket that is held on with the clip, not the threaded one.
