    907 is out of black med offset. I found one in a shop in MN in case anyone is looking for one. I looked at it yesterday. That seatpost in the frame matched the frame color perfect. 9zero7 Fat Bike. « Behind Bars

    Well it looks like they are out of almost every color in 135 and 170 mediums. I really wanted red. They said the next production run won't be until spring or summer. So.....I guess I will enjoy my Pug a little while longer and order a frame next year. It's probably for the better....I shouldn't be spending all my money on bikes anyway! Especially after building a Moots this year, I am probably pushing my luck with the wife.

    Yikes!...their stock is flying off the shelves...that's great for them I guess, but if you want a popular size/colour I'd get on it...

    I have decided will be getting a 9:ZERO:7 small (x-small?) in either orange or yellow as my first fat bike. I just need to get some crap sold for money and space.

    Alright, I can't seem to do what is needed to post pictures here, but I can give a link to my blog with pics!

    I got me a yellow medium (yellow is the new black), 135mm. What is really striking about these frames is the hydroforming. The top tube is hexagonal and all twisty. Really cool no doubt. The downtube is square as it meets the headtube and the goes round as it transitions down. The manipulation on this frame is more than I have seen on other aluminum bikes and it is impressive in person.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    My blog.

    Brown Santa dropped off a nice big box on my porch with lettering printed on the side that read “FATBIKES.COM”. Inside, I found my wife’s small red 2012 aluminum 9:zero:7 frame, and my large orange 2012 aluminum 9:zero:7. Naturally, I’ll be focusing on her bike first, getting it up and running… just need the build kit to arrive.

    I am about to pull the trigger on a 135mm Med green, with the susitna build. Anyone have a good guess on the weight?

    I am going to try and upgrade the McGrath wheels set, Thompson post and possibly 127TPI tires. Might save a bit of weight, but will look cool as hell.

    I have not read a damn thing about the weight of the 2012 9zero7 and am curious as hell.

    So, finally decided that the 907 was the way to go to get myself "FAT", and go to pull the trigger and the 135mm Med Orange is out of stock! Could go green, but really wanted the orange. Anyone know if they will be getting more Med stock in this fall. Bumming in Vermont with the snow about to fly.

    Go GREEN! The green looks awesome IMO. I heard the second batch wouldn't be until spring but I would call to make sure.

    I went with green. The pictures really don't do any of the colors justice.

    Just built my black XL up tonight and I'm stoked on this one. The overall fit and finish of the frame is impressive and exceeded my expectations. I also was amazed at how much tire clearance there is. I'm running 70mm UMA II with a Larry/Endo combo and they look tiny on this thing. Glad I ordered a set of Clown Shoes and BFL's. It looks like it needs it. Sorry for not attaching pics but it's dark outside and I am still waiting for a couple parts to come in. It's ridable now but just not set up how I want it yet. I will post pics once I have it the way I like it.

    The green was my second choice. Be sure to grab a set of those limited edition drilled Rolling Darryls in green to match the frame… before they’re sold out, that is.

    To save bothering the guys at chain reaction, thought i would ask here, it looks like the centred and offset frames differ in other ways than just the rear ends?. Looks like the offset uses a shorter 450mm a-c fork, is this the case?

    You are correct, 450mm offset frame and 468mm for the 170mm rear frame.

    For those who have seen the green in person is it a kermity green or minty green or? I've seen 3 or 4 pics and they all look different. May just end up going orange.

    Another one here waiting for the fatbikes.com box to arrive. I've went for a small 170mm in black with the 907 fork, drilled darryl's with red salsa hubs and x9/e13 drivetrain. And some folding nate's too. Can't wait

    Not looking forward to the customs bill when it arrives in the UK tho

    Well crap, I got a 170mm rear spacing XL frame sitting at the shop and a 450mm A-C length aluminum fork on the way. I noticed they also updated the 907 aluminum fork page with info about the 135mm and 170mm frames taking different length forks.

    I guess if it's too twitchy with the shorter fork I'll sell it and get a longer fork.
