    my uma 29 is undrilled. i have a 26 drilled (built to the same hub) for use as a fat front and its fine...i used to have the uma 29 laced to a dt 240 100mm disc front hub but it felt far too flimsy for trail use.

    if the hub was like a chub with massive flanges it might be ok, but i wouldnt be convinced...i weight 86kg if thats any indication...

    yeah, the marge lites i have seem to be the same construction idea...nice rims - id expect the rabbit holes to be good, and intend to get some.

    I found someone who had 2 UMA rims brand new. Non drilled. Ive been on the front for a week now lots of slow rocky tech stuff and it feels very solid.

    Another option that's available now is the Kris Holm 29er rim, 47mm wide double wall, but only available in 36 hole. Should be plenty strong!

    I have wheels and a frame ready to go, just waiting (impatiently!) for the Knard tires.

    I can't wait to try out this combo, should be super fun!

    PS: J.J's blog shows him building up a Rabbit Hole on an Industry Nine XX1 hub, looked pretty cool.
    Funny I looked at what Holm had to offer today too. It seems if I could get hands on the Knards(That sounds really dirty) you could build a custom 29+

    Nobody knows. The date of release keeps getting pushed back. Finding it in Europe may be even more difficult. May have to check Surly's website for European dealers.

    Word from the shop I'm buying my Necro Pug from is that Krampii sets (frame, rims, & tires) are shipping 1/17 from Surly so if anyone is trying to get one, contact your dealer asap!

    pretty sure when surly announced the krampus, they said the individual items would be early december. so they are only a little month late (if they actually arrive per the new date)

    Does anyone know how long it will be before someone can get rims and tires without purchasing a frame set?

    Luck and timing will play a big part. Could be next week, could be late March.

    The old retail adage... When supply catches up with demand. The completes are still on schedule for March (according to my LBS who got the info from his QBP rep), so if I were to guess... around May.

    If your LBS has a QBP account, they can put an item watch on these. But all that does is notify the shop when they are available - they still have to jump on the items and get the order in at that time.

    You still have to be patient. And for some of these new items that sell out quickly, the shop must be proactive.

    Oh, I'm patient. When it comes to the bike industry, I'm a believe it when I see it guy. Gives me time to store more change in the penny jar to pay for them anyways.

    I had my first dream of riding a Krampus lat night. It was rather disappointing ;way too short front to back and gigantically wide bars!

    qbp says feb 1st for the next lot.

    It will be here soon

    My Krampus shipped today. Should arrive by the end of the week.

    I guess it is time to order the King hubs.

    I picked up my Krampus frameset, rims, and tires this afternoon.

    Surprise! The frame and fork are bass boat green, not matte black. Surly had said that the pre-order frames would be flat black. I do like the green better.

    I got pictures, will upload them later.
