    Bilenky did one or two of these fat cargo bikes. This link is the only photo I could find quickly, though fear not, the owner recovered their stolen rig.

    It is definitely a beast, not the sexy, curvy example the OP was looking for. But, it does seem to be one's best hope when facing the apocalypse!

    That's lovely

    How does the rear end on that work? 135 offset, or 170mm hubs?

    I just ordered most of the parts for my own fat cargo project today Looking forward to the challanges that lay ahead

    I used a 150mm hub and it works good, the chain does rub when in the 36t cog (lowest) This wouldn't be a problem if I ran one chainring but I like the 2 chainrings.



    I also chose 150mm rear hub because there are great choices out there in that size. I chose The Stealth Hub from True Precision. 2nd set and I love them!

    Thanks for the info. I'm about to start my own fat cargo project & looking for solutions that others have used. Are you running a 100mm BB?

    Yes, 100mm BB and a 150mm rear hub. The frame was made with the Surly Instagator drop outs too.

    Fat Cargo Bike, I actually need one...

    Hi All: I have been interested to see the Banjo Cycles Fat Bike and some of the Near Fat Bike versions of Yuba Mundo with Pugsley front forks etc.

    My interest is serious, as I live in a small, isolated, town with no snow-clearing, 60N, 134W in Canada's Yukon. We have 20 hour long nights now, and 4 hour long nights in July, 40 below in the winter, and +30C in the summer. And I get around summer and winter for all tasks, on a bike. Towns or heated shelters are 200kms apart, frostbite or death by hypothermia is a really big issue, so reliability is a must. Spare parts can take up to 2 weeks to arrive here by mail.

    Climate change means we can't count on riding on packed down snow, as above -14C, salt begins to work, and the snow on the streets turns into brown sugar slush. This is for as long as a month a year now, sorry to say.

    So, as the Sachs 7spd internal hub on my 1993 Bridgestone commuter bike is down to 5 gears instead of 7, I really am interested in replacing it. Studded Nokian Mtn+Grnd 26x1.95, fine for packed snow, useless in brown sugar slush or 2cm+ of fresh snow.

    I would like horizontal drop-outs so as to fit a Rohloff IGHub. And fat tire capability, preferably a fat wheel set, and a skinny kevlar-belted summer wheelset, maybe on a frame that would be more amenable to hauling 56L MEC world tour panniers, and a 90L cooler full of fruit+veg, which I do every Tuesday...

    Here are my options:

    -Yuba Mundo, one has sat in town unsold for over a year, but it is here! (shipping to here is $$!) It feels too big though, and too heavy to push up the clay cliffs...

    -try to find a used or new Surly Pugsley, much harder than it might seem...no one is interested in boxing and shippping a used one....then stick Nice Racks front and rear on it, fenders, Rohloff

    -Yuba Boda Boda, like the size and weight of it, but it can't fit a disk brake in the back, no tab, not sure we have alu welding capability here

    Evidently both Yuba bikes I would get a Surly disc Fork for the front, with as wide a tire as I can get...

    I guess my question is how useful in deep 15cm (6in) brown-sugar type slush would a cargo bike be with at least a 3.7in wide front tire, maybe only 2.5 (Boda) or a 3.0 (Mundo) on the rear?

    Ideally, I would like to go for Husker Du studs, as we do have lots of black ice when it drops below the magic -14C, which was for the last 3 weeks at -30C, though we are at 0C now in a chinook...

    Whilst I do snowshoe-pack the bike shortcut trails through town, I do find that fat bike people, mostly on Pugsley's, zip around me whilst I am snowshoeing...so the fat bike thing would mean less use of a pulk-sled to haul groceries with after snowstorms...

    What do you all think?

    MooseCaboose,

    Mate, whats that rear disc you're running? It looks like a ventilated disc.

    Cheers,
    Al

    The Banjo bike is delicious!

    Sadly, I need something shorter and lighter...

    How about a Rohloff in a 14’’ Fat Back Alu Rocker Drop out Frame?

    Has anybody done this before?

    Looking to build a fat snow cargo bike, racks front and rear, in NW Canada, Surly Pugsley’s aren’t available until at least June….Yuba Mundo is just too long and too heavy for me.

    But the Banjo bike is appealing!

    The Manufacture is Bikes at Work. I believe its rated for 400 but can go 600 if you want to pull it. How you see it is in 96" mode, Its a modular design and goes 32,64,96 and the wheel is offset so it can be placed to balance the load. Its a brilliant design!
