    Just got off the phone with Mark Ruda at Golden Bike Shop in Colorado and they have some large 2012's in stock if anyone needs one. They are a great shop and heavy into fat bikes.

    I just recently swapped my 2011 frame for a 2012 (so much better of a fit). Here is my contribution

    Hey all, my new 9 zero 7 build is near complete, but i have one problem.

    I got the 3 ring FSA crank with the 2 speed XT front derailur, and the derailur hits the big ring when shifting to mid gear preventing the shift. Should I just remove my big ring? I have an old race face ring that I was thinking of grinding the teeth off of and then it will clear and be as useless as a 3rd ring with teeth on a 2x10 set up.

    It seems weird they would send me this crazy setup, my 2x10 drive train is 22t -32t up front, is it just me or does that seem like some VERY low gearing even on a fatty.

    Any one have the same problem or have any good solutions?

    I would run it with a bash ring. I have a nice FSA I could sell if you need one.

    Running a Race Face 32t up front and a E13 chain guide. So far I have enough gears for where I ride.

    Only rode around on them for a couple of minutes since they just built them up today. Hopefully I will get a night ride in tomorrow to test them a bit. If not I will definitely put some miles on them this weekend. As far as the rim itself it is hands down the nicest quality 100mm rim I have seen yet. Surly did a great job on these and the guy at the shop said they built up very easily so that's a plus. If only they could make more of them. They are going to be very hard to find for awhile. Many thanks to Golden Bike Shop for releasing a set to me. I owe you guys some beers!

    I'm running 22/32 with a bash guard. The gearing is perfect for fat biking.

    I love those bash guards from BBG Bash Guard. custom

    I have used those on several of my bikes.

    Trumpits, is that an E-type derailleur? If so there is an oblong washer that needs to be flipped upside down. Kinda oval shaped and the hole needs to be on the low side which brings up the derailleur to clear the big ring.
    There is no charge for awesomeness......or attractiveness.

    Good rep does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good.

    I'm coming up with approx. 4 3/8" with the Nate and approx. 4 1/2" with a BFL. They are very close to same width. The BFL is a little taller. The rim tape is 3M reflective fabric.

    I've got a few rides on the Nate so far and I love it. It is the best tire so far IMO. Didn't care for the BFL in the rear and took a pretty good crash because it washed out on me. Not too bad in the front but hopefully something better comes out.

    Please keep in mind that I wasn't crazy about the BFL in the rear in conditions in the front range where I live and ride. I'm sure some people love it and it works great for them and where they ride. It just wasn't for me. The Nate just suits my riding style better. I plan on putting the Endo back on in the summer though just to lower the rolling resistance. Also have a Husker Du on order and have high hopes on that tire for summer use.

    I was wondering the same thing - I assumed it was red based on the photo above but then the last photo looks more orange. I wish they made the fork to color coordinate with the frame itself or at least gave the option (even if it were at additonal cost). Nice to have choices though. The orange and red both look sharp but the orange and green seem to really pop as the woods get darker during twilight. A friend of mine has a lime green 907 with lime bash and it just about glows on a dark and cloudy day!!

    Yes, it is the red color. I thought it was orange when I brought it. The salesperson told me that it was actually in red color and agreed that the color is slighty closer to orange. The color was so striking and couldn't resist buying it in this color. The LBS only had them in two colors - black and red. I bet they are awesome in orange or green color. Maybe I'll get to see those colors on trails. Thumbs up for color choices on those 907s.

    Loving this bike and the tire rim combo. The clownshoes with BFL/Nate is working great in the snow. Amazed by how much better the Nate climbs than the Endo. Pics were taken at Elk Meadow/ Bergen Peak.

    Today was the big day. My wife, amazingly, is fully stoked about the red size small 9:zero:7 aluminum frame and build kit I got for her for Christmas! Needless to say, I spent the afternoon putting it together in the garageóitís about halfway done, must break for dinner. She didnít seem too pissed off that I helped myself to an orange size large 9:zero:7 in aluminum for Christmas.

    I got mine in last week. I love it! I will try to get some pics up. If I can figure out how. Is there a thread somewhere ... how to post pictures? I thought the XL frame might be to big, but it feels just right.

    Yes they are the 647's. I really like them . I use them on my snow bike and my all-mountain bike.

    Should be possible as long as you use a Surly MYOB or a crankset with similar spacing. There is now way I could run a granny right now with the 100mm rims and Nate.

    Pretty happy to weigh in at just under 32 lbs with the Clownshoes and studded Nate/BFL. Also including heavy 647 pedals. Probably could get it down a little more if I washed it.

    Has anyone tried out 2012 model with a Big Fat Larry in the rear, on a 100mm rim and Mr.Whirly Offset Double front rings on drive train? Can the rear casette be modified so, that you could keep a reasonable range between 36/34T cog and a 11/12 tooth cog? With how many rear cogs would this be possible? Thanks!

    Fatbikes.com shows this set up on their facebook page. They got the full gear range with a 10 spd cassette.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    You won't have a problem with the drive drain, but you will with the frame.

    I have a 170mm rear 2012 907 with 100mm Flattop rims. I put a BFL in the rear, but after it stretched out it had virtually no (1-2mm) clearance at the chainstays at 10psi. So now it's BFL on the front (with an Enabler fork, plenty of clearance), and a regular Larry in the rear.
    I do recommend the MWOD, since even with a regular Larry you'll get still get some chain rub. I spaced my cassette over 1 cog to ensure clearance in the MWOD granny + largest cog combo.

    I imagine that the MWOD chain rings would give you full clearance drivetrain wise. I get a little bit of chain rub with my Nate/RD combo in the small ring and the two large rings in the back. For what its worth, I never use that high of a gear when in the small ring. I do know that the tire knobby's are awfully close to the chainstays with this setup. There is a facebook picture showing that the BFL on a 100mm rim fitting their frame.

    This may be on an 80mm rim, it doesn't say.


    The description from these photo's say they are 100mm Flattop's with BFL's.

    9zero7 landed in 315..The orangemen has arrived.

    After coming off a great pugsley, th 9zero7 is more refined and more responsive. The Du's did great in light fluffy snow. The Jones bars feel great.

    I just ordered , actually preordered the Medium Blue 907, fatbike.com says it's a different shade of Blue not the bright blue from the previous model, frame won't be available until mid March 2012. I got time to sell some stuff to pay of the credit card bill, my first fat one. Looking forward to the new ride. If anyone has a pic of the new blue, share the pic please, ordered new color without even seeing a pic. Hoping to get a pic before they sent this one out to me, in case I change my mind regarding color.

    Can't wait to see the polished one. Also noticed the Ti frames are on sale so hopefully some pics of new builds soon.

    I too would be curious what the polished frame looks like. Anyone got a sneak peek?

    Question for Fatterisbetter - please can you tell me what size frame your 9zero7 is and roughly how tall you are? Great looking bike by the way. Thanks.

    I am 6'2" and the bike is an XL. I prefer a larger frame. I wouldn't change a thing. Love this bike.

    How is the responsiveness of the 2012 in the trails (singletrack), I am getting one, setting it up for aggresive XC, 47mm rims with Larry's 3.8, Maverick SC32 fork, e13 cranks. A chainstay of 18.4", is this good or bad for trail riding. No Snow where I live so my set up will be different, I appreciate the input before i make the move. Thanks

    I really like the geometry of the 907 on single track. I live in Denver and we have barely gotten any snow this season but I have still been riding it on everything else. I owned a Fatback last season (old style) and have ridden it on lots of dry single track and technical terrain. So far I prefer the fit and feel of the 907 without a doubt. I'm running 100's on it so I occasionally hit the sidewalls on rocks but if you are running 47's I wouldn't worry about it. You'll be able to ride it anywhere and have a blast.

    Great "attached" feel on single track. Very responsive and phenomenal feel over roots rocks etc. I think to make my bike more responsive, I would have to change out the bars to a wider bar that doesn't sweep back as much as the Jones Loop.

    I rode my Pugsley 1,410 miles on trails, mostly technical singletrack. On my 9:zero:7 Iíve found that the front end stays planted better on really steep climbs as compared to the Pugsley. It just rides a bit differentlyóbetter.

    Hi guys, I just got my 2012 9:0:7 frame. building it up myself, mainly for South Florida's soft beaches and XC riding. What is your recommendation for drivetrain? I'm planning to have Husker Du-s on Large Marge lites, Hope pro 2 evo hubs 170mm. Thinking of 2x9. What shifter-cassette-derailleur combination should I use, what r u guys using? Thanks for any help.

    I really like X9 10spd drivetrain myself. The new X9 trigger shifters are pretty high quality stuff as well.

    sizing question:

    Looking at this for a slow summer build to be ready for first snow. Debating between the Medium and Large Frames. I'm about 5'10, which puts be right between on the size chart. I find the stock 18" Pugsley feels about right, and the 17" Mukluk feels a bit short. I am leaning towards the medium frame. Thoughts?

    As long as you have enough seatpost for the med and the 18' pugs feel good then I would go Med for sure. The Effective TT on a med 907 is a little longer than the 18" pugs so a large would be too long, but like I said make sure you will have enough seatpost left in the frame on the med which you should.

    BDundee is right IMO.

    effective top tube (ETT) is the measurement you need to check for sure. Since they changed the frame the standover doesn't matter.

    I'm 5'10" and ordered a large. My Inbred 29er's ETT is 619 and the large 9:zero:7 is 622 if I remember right. I also rode a friend's 29er the other night and his ETT was like 629 and he had a 120mm stem and while it was a long it wasn't unrideable. Of course, I also have a Haro Mary 29er and the ETT on that is like 600...

    Measure the bike you ride and like the best and order the closest.

    Pjbaz and Bdundee are correct
    I would go with the MED. 9zero7 after comparing specs the ETT. is 7mm longer than your Pug.

    Nice 907! I also have a XL orange 907 that I love!! - Curious though, where did you get your orange spacers for the steerer tube??? right now I have a mix of silver and black (just what was on hand) and I was considering going all black spacers until I just saw your ride - like you my fellow fat rider and I love these bikes for singletrack, with or without snow!!!

    I'm 5'7" and ride a Medium 2012 907. I'd definitely be looking for a Large if I was 5'10".

    True 'dat. 5'8" with a medium on the way when the next batch arrives.

    ETT is a good tool to get you in the ballpark, BUT (big but), seatpost offset and stem length will make up for small variances in ETT versus your current ride. ETT coupled with reach (distance from BB to HT) will allow you to calculate the seatpost setback and actual fit on the bike. The biggest concern should be weight distribution on the bike and this is more directly related to body position relative to wheelbase. Since you are the engine, choose the size that allows for a saddle, seatpost and stem set-up that gives you the best possible postion over the crank and between the wheels.

    Morej,nice 907 - is that a BBG bashguard by any chance?

    My friend and I just got two BBGs and that looks identical. My first fatbike was a black 907 like yours and then I went up a size and went with orange. Still like the black though since it then comes with a matching fork. I always wondered if a white bashguard would set off both black and orange but have not seen it done yet. Is that a 21 or 19" 907?

    I'd love to find out what I could change on my 907 to make it two pounds lighter, but I can see little on your build which could make that sort of difference. Mind you, I've no idea how much the Black Floyds weigh :-)

    29.5# is not out of reach on a Fat Bike if one really cares to.

    It is 21" and yes, it is a BBG bashguard.

    New ride after a nice singletrack excursion in Park City, UT. Waited 5 months for the frame to arrive but it was worth it! Close-up of custom paintjob on rims - 2nd set of wheels with RD's and BFL's for winter use in the works. 27 lbs of fat tire goodness

    is that paint or some sort of applique? Something you did yourself, or did you source it somewhere.
