    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.

    red or orange??

    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!
