Has anybody looked into the Surly Pugsley I was thinking of getting one for all the horse trails in the area. A reg MB  just can't make it. I've seen them go very well on beaches

I've ridden one. It's one of the most stupid fun bikes I've ever ridden but I wouldn't buy one unless I had a special use in mind. Floats over stuff that the most aggressive regular profile knobbies would get bogged down in. It's a hell of a workout to push those big wheels. Don't expect to go anywhere fast.

Someone has one around here.  I saw a guy out at boyette on it a while ago (April or May maybe).  He was doing all of the trails including ridgeline.  Probably not very helpful if I don't know who it is, but ...

The one I saw was at a cyclocross race in Orlando. It was being used as a pit bike. It was really good at going across the ungroomed grass fields in the interior of the course. Other bikes tended to get bogged down in the tall wet grass on top of wet sandy soil. The Pugsley just floated over the stuff though.
