    Hydrographic dip process usually used for interior panels on automobiles and to camouflage hunting equipment.

    It's a simple process that can be applied to very complex shapes. In a nutshell, the parts to be painted are primed with a base color, a film with chosen graphic is floated in a tank of water and sprayed with an activator, the part is dipped through the film which applies the design and then a few coats of automotive clear to protect the finish. Had it done by the fine folks at Black Ice Coatings in Spanish Fork, UT. Added only 20g to each rim. There are many options available - woodgrain, stone, camo, faux carbon fiber... you name it. I chose Mothwing Winter Mimicry camo over a white base given the intended use of this bike.

    I've been pulling this thread up every little bit trying to plan my build. I have my drive train, breaks, Carver Carbon Fiber fork on the way, I'm using my existing seat/seat post, Bars, and bits off other bikes, and looking at getting Red 170mm 9:zero:7 frame next month, and building a set of wheels, undecided on them yet.

    Nice bike, someone had mentioned the Uma 70's on another thread, they do look good with Husker Du's. How do you like the Carver fork? I have one coming for my build.

    Is the Carver pretty stiff? Do you know what size rotor it can handle?

    I am loving this thread, I'm so close to building my 9:zero:7, waiting on a few parts and time to build. I am concerned with the size frame I got. I stood over a 18" pug at the LBS, way too tall. ouch! I figured I'd order a 16" pug until I saw the 907, I was in heaven! I ordered a small because that's what I was told. I have a 29" inseam and about 5'9". The size chart says I should be a medium. Hmmm I hope it isn't too small. I have to ride a small (15.5") 29er because I don't have the standover on the medium frames. The medium 26" wheel fits me great, Same with road bike, I have to go with a 51cm frame because I cannot stand over the 54cm. I might be ok with the small, even though the stand over on these are so low! Thoughts?

    Edit: after some measurements the ETT of my mountain bike is 570mm, the EFF of the small 907 is 583mm. I should be ok

    I'm Getting a small. At 5'7" on a tall day I could have gone with either small or medium but decided the extra stand over would be good in the snow.

    Although I don't have much to compare to, I'd say the carver fork is on the stiffer end of things yet able to dampen out vibrations nicely (a la carbon). I'd say some would be inclined to say soft, but I think the low tire pressures and wide footprint mask it's stiffness. I'm running at 30psi on hard gravel and dirt trails being pulled by a dog (15-25mph), hitting the local singletrack, and commuting to work with it. As I said it's quick and nimble, not soft and slushy. I don't anticipate the carbon will give any serious advantage over alum/steel when the snow flies, but I'll see....

    FWIW.......I'm 5'8" w/ a 30" inseam and got the medium. It fits perfectly....after dialing in the cockpit.

    edit...oh yeah....Not sure what size rotor it can handle. I'm running a 185mm avid though.

    I'm 5'7" and riding a Medium 2012 model. No way could I get comfy on a Small. In fact, the Medium even looks small in photos of me riding it - though it isn't.

    I know I posted this in another thread but might as well add it here too...



    Built more as a trail bike rather than a snow / sand bike. Weight is approx 12.5 kg. Waiting on an E-Thirteen crankset to complete it... the Middleburns will go back on my singlespeed.

    Since I took this photo I've converted the front wheel setup to tubeless using the Gorilla Tape method. Will convert the rear wheel this weekend. The first attempt failed horribly but I revised my technique, bought a new roll of Gorilla tape and tried again. Great success. Rode in the forest last Sunday and smashed the front tire into every rock and root I could find... no burps, no leaks.

    There is no normal amount of spacers, use as many as you need to make yourself comfortable.

    My suggestion would be to buy a pack of spacers from here.

    1 - Put them on bike with stem and ride around....
    2 - Change the stem and spacers around ride some more....
    3 - Change the stem and spacers around ride some more....
    4 - Choose prefered setup and cut steerer stem if applicable.

    Who's going to post some pictures of the new sliding dropout frame? Mine's in transit, so I know they are now in the wild. My build should be finished in a week and I'll share some pics then.

    What SRAM front derailleur are you using? I went with High Mount X.0 -2x and it doesn't appear to fit. Thoughts?

    What bike, what crank, what mount, what tire/rim, what appears to be the problem? And pictures can often help.

    The new 907/red/medium. I just received it yesterday. My crank is race face turbine triple w/bashguard (so 2x setup). The derailleur is direct mount. I'll try to get pics later.

    that stud is for and e-type mount derailleur you need to get this Problem Solvers for your direct mount derailleurs. this is what I am using for my 907. Just a note the cost of the adapter is about the the same as an e-type derailleur.

    You need the Problem Solvers FD direct mount 100mm adapter to use that FD.

    That stud that is on the frame is for a E-type FD

    I am using this think for reference. Derailleurs

    Thank you for the feedback! What do you recommend as an alternative SRAM F-Der for e-type? My crank is 24/36 tooth.

    I believe this Shimano XT M780 E-Type 3x10 Front Mech | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com or this Shimano XTR M985 E-Type 2x10 Front Mech | Buy Online | ChainReactionCycles.com will work.

    so, just so it is said.

    SRAM doesn't make an e-type front derailleur. Like many have stated, using a shimano FD with SRAM shifters will be fine (the same is NOT true for rear derailleurs). To use a SRAM front Derailleur, you would need the Problem solvers direct mount adapter

    Just adding my personal opinion, I would stick with the derailleur you have and get the problem solvers adapter. You can always use it for a 1x setup on a later date.

    Looking forward to seeing the bike finished.

    I'm getting kind of desperate, does anybody know when the 2013 170mm frames will start to get delivered, 907 is not exact replaying to my emails or questions ask on their facebook page (feels like a mom and pop shop by the way they run it)

    Thanks Patineto, I was having trouble getting the images to display and then life got in the way and I had to wait until now. Next up is the build.

    That's v. nice. It should last longer than the red paint on my 9:zero:7 (yes - I know that red paint is often "soft")

    The finish is great! I went with the Carver Ti O'Beast Fork.

    Genefruit: a very nice frame you have there indeed.

    Ordered mine today, same kind, same color. Perhaps its his brother? If so, your bike will have a brother up in the frozen parts of Northern Europe...

    Are you going for the IGH option for the rear wheel?

    I'm transferring my Alfine 11 over and will be adding a Gates CenterTrack drive system. I should have more pics and a first ride impression later this week.

    I haven't had much time to take it out for a ride this week so a local field will have to do. Many of my parts were moved over from my Pugsley but the Carver Ti fork and Gates drive system are the new perks besides the frame.

    I am on the board with a 44mm head tube 170mm rear frame. I think it's a 2013 frame.

    My build is going to be basic.

    Moonlander front fork.
    Clown shoe laced to a surly hun with a BFL On front.
    Rolling Dadryl laced to a salsa hub with a bud in the back.
    MWOD cranks
    Bb5 brakes
    Jones loop bars brooks seat.

    Nothing exotic just a comfortable bike to get back on the trails.

    On a dry lakebed in Central Wisconsin.
    2012 19" 170mm with BFL tires on Darryl rims. The purple crank is a Raceface Atlas FR. This tire/rim combo fits in the frame, but to keep the chain off the tire, this setup requires all the crank spacers on the drive side, and the smallest cogs removed with a singlespeed spacer behind the cassette.

    So what frames are shipping now? Please say 44mm head tubes...

    I just ordered a frame thru my LBS and realized I probably need a zero stack headset to use my existing fat fork

    is there a zero stack option out there for traditional 1-1/8" threadless?

    The friendly, serviceminded people at fatbikes.com should be able to provide you and your LBS with a suitable headset I reckon. I think the complete builds include a 907 headset.

    I have also seen (on Chainreactioncycles.com) that Hope has the different types of headsets available. Different head tube inner diameters, different fork tube dimensions etc etc. Have a look and I think you would find what youre looking for.

    There is a jungle out there with respect to headsets, diameters, stack height etc etc. Not sure what kind of fork AC and corresponding headset stack height the 44 mm headtube 907 frames are meant to have.

    Another 9:zero:7 build....

    Since I didn't want to start a new thread, I thought I'd just post this here. I just finished building up my medium blue, 9zed and will be taking it out for a night ride tonight with friends. Here's a pic:



    I purchased the frame, fork and wheels from my LBS (the West Hill Shop in Putney, VT) and added stuff I had around and cannibalized my race 29er for a few parts. I did need to buy a 100mm Isis BB and the tires as well. It is a pretty basic build with high spec Salsa hubs, Marge Lites and HD's. I used Continental 26x2.25 tubes as I wanted to try and have the lightest wheels my budget could handle, others seem to be able to get high quality narrower tubes to work. I plan to use it as a four season ride to keep things fun. If this winter is like the last, the XC skiing will be supplanted by lots of riding. Since I am an old school weight weenie, I weigh everything as I assemble a bike, this one comes it at 29.8 pounds all told. That seems reasonable to me as my previous F/S 29er came in at about the same weight. I am stoked with how it came out and am really looking to riding it tonight, tomorrow and....

    Regards,
    Wardo

    I have a couple questions for the folks out there that are running the the sliding dropout frame and IGH.

    The design looks real user friendly, is it?

    Is it durable,or is it too early to tell?

    I have a pugs set up with a Rohloff(i love this hub), it just seems the sliding dropout design makes sense if you are going to run an IGH. It works in the pugs and has been trouble free,but it is time consuming to remove the rear wheel(not that it has to be done a lot).I am talking my self into one of these frames, i look at their website daily,yes it is sad

    I have the frame and its great. Tire clearance is also a real big surprise. Mounted a BFL today on RDs and I had major clearance. With my MWOD crank and 2x9 I had around 6-7mm chain line clearance. I am waiting for my O'beast fork and Im thinking of giving Bud and Lou a try.
