    100mm rims on the rear of a 907??

    Has anyone got any photos of 100mm rims mounted on the rear of their 907?

    I was wondering about a 2nd wheelset for beachriding on my 2011 frame, but I do wonder about the frame clearance when using these rims & regular Larry, even though it is stated they do fit.

    Just want to see how snug they are

    With a 100mm/larry combo, i'd be more worried about drivetrain clearance.

    That can be dealt with, but I need to be convinced that they can be squeezed in before building begins

    I know there are people running a BFL on a 80 on the older 907's. Not sure what the width difference is between that and a skinny Larry on a hundie.

    I have tried that, but when I put the power down, there is enough flex in the wheel to cause rub, as there is only a few mm clearance
    May have to buy something fatter for beach work & keep the 907 for trails/camping adventures as I love it

    That was me. I had a BFL on a 70mm UMA 2 in my 2010 for a while, but when I'd stand to pedal it would rub the chainstays. Went back to an Endo on the rear. I suspect you'd be fine with a 100mm rim/3.7 or 3.8 tire, but I haven't tried it myself.

    907 2012 without offset + FlatTop 100 + BFL + 5-8 PSI (On 15 PSI rear wheel not fit to frame)

    Photo after several trips.

    fatbikes.com recommended to me this setup. no apologies, no decision from them I have not received so far.

    very bad service.

    now I buy moonlander and happy with rear wheel clearance!

    I've got some 100mm rims. I'll lend one to you so you can fit a BFL, Larry, Nate, or Endo to it and measure how far into your stays it will go. Then there's no need to get 100mm rims to build a wheel unless it works.

    I could also do this with my 907, but I suspect my mudguards would get in the way, so I'd have to remove them.

    I have Flat Top 100's and BFL's on my 907 and I have no frame rub. I needed to do some creative drive train spacing but I did not loose any gears. I run the tires around 5 psi

    Velo, I have to go to Norway for a couple of weeks, but I might take you up on your offer when I get back & maybe catch up for a ride somewhere

    My bike is an "old" 135mm frame, so there is no way a BFL is going to fit in the rear. It doesn't even work with 80mm rims

    Johnny, is your 907 170mm or 135mm frame? Fatbikes.com site clearly states that the 170mm frame is designed to run 100mm rims, so why is this even a question
    Your bike looks awesome btw!

    My bike is the 170 rear spacing. with a BFL it is close but it works. Since the last time you saw it I have removed the smallest cog and spaced the cassette out just to be safe

    If you are referring to my post, the 2011 frame is 135mm only. A nate on 80mm rims barely fits, so I wanted to find out how folks get on with 100's.

    Anyhow, I'm not wasting any money or time on this, I am buying a moonlander now & keeping the 907 the way it is.

    OK, I didn't know that, thanks.
