The Pug Ops, along with many Surly bikes, is going to ten speed in 2016. See the 10 speed Pug Ops.
This limited edition bike is a bigger footed, much more color matched version of the standard Pugsley. Comes stock with the wider Rolling Darryl rims for an expanded tire print and Surlys Offset Double crankset to avoid the possibility of the chain srubbing the tire on the wider rim. Also stock are the Surly Nate tires with 120 thread per inch casings.
