    How many 907 owners using MWOD crank?
    And Clown Shoes with BFL tires.
    I am in the process of installing it now and wanted to know what others have experienced as far as what spacers to use to get the right chainline.
    Installed with one spacer on the drive side and using the e type DR I am still getting chain rub on the small ring and the big ring in the back.
    More spacers? any suggestions?
    Thanks

    I don't know if you'll get there with bfl's on clown shoes. You may have to back space the cassette and drop a cog or two.

    Boatracer, did you try the combination we talked about? Here are some pics I just took. This clearly shows clearance between the tire and chain in the small ring big cog combination. No spacers on non drive side and a 1/16 th spacer behind the drive side crank arm. Full ten speed cassette, no chain rub.
  • 12-11-2012
    Boatracer
    gcappy. I tried just about every combination there is with the parts that came with the crank. The only thing I don't have are the conicle washers that go against the bearings and from your pictures it looks like you might have one in there at least on the drive side. That would fix the problem.

    That picture is deceiving. It looks like a spacer there but it is actually just the e-type derailleur mount. There really is nothing there except the derailleur bracket, the 1/16th washer and the bearing housing. No spacers of any kind.

    You have to look carefully to see the 1/16th washer I put in there. It is between the bearing housing and the crank arm. Slightly shinny.

    Here is a better shot of the derailleur mount. It has a weird shape. Almost looks like two separate pieces.

    That would be the difference in what you have to give you no chain rub.
    Where did you come up with the washer is it a bike part or hardware store item?

    Correct. This is why I have chain-tire clearance with full ten speed. It is just a carbon steel washer that I got when I visited Craig Smith at MendonCycleSmith for my Lefty. It is nothing special, I don't think it is even bicycle specific. Just a flat washer 1/16 th thick with a big enough ID. to go over the crank. Probably get one at any hardware store.

    Thanks again!
    The MWOD for a moonlander comes with one of those washers for both sides.
    I will locate a washer tomorrow and put this issue to rest.
    what bearings are you using the ones that came with mine are black

    The bearings that came with the crank lasted one ride through some deep water and set up like concrete. I changed them out for a set of Shimano bearings. Can't remember if they were road or mnt. I work part time at a local shop so I just went through the stock until I found a set that fit. The inner seal was much tighter on the crank so I think they keep water out better from the inside any way.

    Frame in sofa - need to share
    I guess this is the must-do picture?
    Frame from 9:zero:7 (sliding rear dropout) in grand-ma's old sofa.

    The RaceFace Turbine in grey with CDX sprocket is one of the most beautiful crank sets I've ever seen. Luckily it's mine :)

    thanks

    I am also 6' tall, and I started fatbiking riding a size large Pugsley (ran a Thompson setback seatpost), and now am on a size large 9:zero:7… no need to run a setback seatpost, everything feels just fine. My inseam is around 33.5" however, I’m kind of a long-legged freak. I had a size extra-large Santa Cruz Superlight I used to race, but I consistently got a backache after each race and training ride—this was what made me consider just trying out a size large. But yes, from manufacturer to manufacturer the geometry of “size X or Y” varies.

    thanks

    According to this size chart that can be found at fatbikes.com, you should be choosing the large frame. At 6ft I ride a large 9zero7 with a 65mm stem and a slight setback seatpost in order to attain a center of gravity that is a bit further back. The size and geo are spot on. I would not even consider getting an extra large frame unless I wanted to maximise the space in the main "triangle" to house a larger frame bag. With the large, as opposed to the XL, you will also appreciate the lower stand over height of the frame and thus maintain your ability to sire children if you so wish to.



    When in doubt and falling in between frame sizes, I have held it as a general rule of thumb to always go with the smaller option. It is easier to adjust a bike to make it a tad "bigger" than to make it "smaller" if you catch my drift.

    End of my 2cents.

    Like Porkstacker, I am getting my wife a 9:Zero:7 for Christmas :thumbsup:

    Can someone help an old singlespeeder get a clue? What front derailleur do I need exactly? I'm looking at SLX level. Currently it has a SLX Shadow+ rear derailleur, 9 speed SRAM chain, 9 speed Shimano cassette, King BB, and Middleburn 2 piece crank just in case compatibility matters. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bikecen...n/photostream/

    Is this what I need?

    I am 5'-7" and the small is just right. Prior to getting my 9:zero:7 I rode a small Salsa Mukluk. It only had a 90mm stem which felt a bit crampt. On this bike I have a 110mm stem which puts my weight out over the front wheel and is much more compfortable. You have a very nice looking bike!

    Hey your bike looks sweet, I'm planning on ordering one myself and working to figure the proper sizing, most likely a small. I was surprised you are riding a small. I'm 5'7", 29" inseam , 68.5cm top of saddle to the center of the bottom bracket spindle. What I you saddle height as shown in your recent picture?

    I tried to reply to your question to me, but the Forum said I need to have 3 more comments before I can reply to a private message. I measured my bike, and here are the measurements you asked for:

    1. The distance from the center of the bottom bracket spindle (crank center) to the top of the seat is 68 cm (26- 3/4")
    2. The handlebar drop or rise compared to seat height.
    *The height of the top of my seat from the ground is 95.89 cm (37-3/4")
    *The height of the top of my handlebars from the ground is 100.33 cm (39-1/2")

    I have ridden this bike a lot in the past couple of weeks, and I am VERY happy that I went with a "small" frame. I did put on a 110 mm stem to give me a bit more room. I heard that it is better to err on the side of smaller when selecting a Fat Bike size. Good luck!

    Hey thanks for the info, your fit is identical to what I'm after, looks like I will go with my orignal gut feeling and order a small. BTW- how tall is your stack of spacers under the stem?

    Is this what I need?
    Shimano XT M770 E-type Front Derailleur - AEBike.com

    So all built, and she digs it. We've only been out once though. The SLX Shadow+ derailleur is pretty cool, but doesn't play nice with the DA Thumbie and 9-speed cassette, so I put it into friction mode. I proceeded to order SLX trigger shifters and a 10-speed cassette...and DOH! I forgot to throw in a front derailleur into the order :madman:

    I'm also waiting for a Jones Loop bar so I can position the levers and shifters better. The old-timey H-bars don't allow much option for placing the controls, esp if for her smaller hands. These bars are best relegated for singlespeeding.

    I'll also put on Speedplay Frogs when we're not riding on snow or sand. Other than that, I think it's a cool looking bike :thumbsup:

    Riding in the snow I like a more upright position. I have an 1-1/8" stack of spacers below the stem. Post pictures of your build when you are finished.

    Just got done installing my Raceface Turbine crankset. Can any other Raceface users chime in regarding your spacer/washer config? I have one 2.5mm on the non-drive side, and along with the e-type der. mount, one 2.5mm on the drive side. The instructions that are provided with the crank give no info regarding 100mm bb.

    NOTE: I had the lbs chase and face the bottom bracket shell on my 2011 170mm frame, and was not impressed with how much material removal was needed to square everything up. I would suggest that everyone have their bb shell checked.

    same here for my atlas however no F der so mine was more about chainline setup.

    I got out the ruler

    small 907 fatbike center of crank to top of saddle top 18"
    stumpjumper 17.5 SS center of crank to top of saddle top 18"

    small 907 fatbike center of bar grips to saddle tip 20"
    stumpjumper 17.5 SS center of bar grips to saddle tip 20"

    both bikes have the saddle top level with the height of the grips
    both bikes have the same setback of saddle to crank center
    both bikes fit perfect
    I always by my bikes by effective top tube because I know what fits me
    the old 907 medium has the same effective top tube length as the new small
    if I was running loop bars I would need the next size up but I like my boring 10 degree sweep bars "my sweet spot"

    on a positive note its snowing right Now

    Nice bike! Yes, in December 2011 I bought myself a 2012 9:zero:7 frame in orange, but to justify the purchase I also got one in red for my wife. Here is an action shot on my 9:zero:7:

    Not one bit. I prefer the handling characteristics of the 9:zero:7 over the Pugsley. It’d be kinda cool to build up a Pugsley in one size smaller as a singlespeed though for doing stunts and tricks on.

    Here is my 9zero7 McGrath after it's maiden voyage today. No snow but still lots of fun out on the trails dialing in the fit. The bike blasted through everything on the muddy trails and I was smiling the whole time. I was right between a small and medium on the fit chart. I went with the small and the fit is perfect. I will ride it for a while and when I finalize the stem height I will cut down the steerer.

    Tiboy, GREAT looking bike! I am glad the size "small" was the right choice. Great idea on dialing in the stem height before cutting down your steer tube. Enjoy your bike, these things are awesome!

    I was cautious as the Medium frame has a 20mm longer head tube, so I included an extra 20 mm in the steerer length in case the small fame didn't work out. I'm currently at 10mm under the stem using the riser bar that was included with the build kit, looks proper and feels right.

    I finally had a few nice snow rides and love the bike, way more fun than hiking or snow shoes! I have a 110mm stem on the way, I will install it to finalize my fit compared to the current 100mm stem and cut down the extra steerer tube.

    wife's xsmall. Still needs few more touches but is done. She already tested it in the snow and loved it. Mine is still needs many parts but should be done soon.

    Love the looks of that one^. Color works great, and the small frame with the big tires makes it look tough! I wonder what it would look like if the handlebar matched the rims.

    a2gtinut,


    How tall is your wife? My youngest daughter has pretty much taken my new 9:zero:7 build over so I thought I'd start looking at smaller frames. I like the lines of that xsmall very much. Nice build.
