    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)

    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")

    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 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.
