    I got the Pugsley, but trying to work out if I should get the 100mm or 120mm motor. I've seen both builds but definitely worried about the chain line and I don't want the chain falling off like I've seen people saying...

    I didn't find an answer, but I gave it a go anyway. No way to make the Gates belt drive work, but I did get the 100mm BBSHD to work with a Nuvinci n360. It required a lot of spacers, though, and an offset crank on the non-drive side, as I recall, and the chainline ia a mess. If you're running singlespeed, I'd recommend chain tensioners to keep the chain from dropping constantly due to the bad chainline.

    Surly Pugsley 2.0 with BBSHD 100mm?

    Hi all,

    Has anyone had success (or failure) with building the new, redesigned Surly Pugsley 2.0 with a BBSHD 100mm? I see this thread regarding a build with the older Pugsley, but it sounds like the updated version may have more intrusive chainstays, so wondering if the 100mm BBSHD will work. Ultimately thinking of using a Gates Carbon Drive system with Nuvinci N360 hub, if anyone has thoughts/experience on that.
    My daily commute is 13 miles each way, and I found myself making excuses for driving my car instead of biking, especially with snow on the road. I own a Surly
