    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.

    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 I’ve found that the front end stays planted better on really steep climbs as compared to the Pugsley. It just rides a bit differently—better.

    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.

    Ever think about a Rohloff for sandy beach riding? The hub is bomb proof.

    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.
