    9:zero:7 2012 lust

    I am seriously considering pulling the plug on an orange 2012 9:zero:7 aluminum frame (135mm offset) in size large. Something about the shape of that frame is just damn sexy.

    I have a 2009 Pugsley current built up, and now I am wondering how many of my parts will transfer over to the 135mm offset 9:zero:7 2012 frame. Obviously the seatpost is of a larger diameter than the Pugsley, what else will I have to change? I haven’t really put much thought into forks yet, although I do have a spare non-offset 100mm-hub-ready Pugsley front fork (and spare 100mm non-offset front wheels, a couple of them), all I’d need to do would be to get it stripped and powdercoated in the same obnoxious orange colour.

    Any ideas? Thoughts? Possible regrets? I love my Pugsley, honestly, the most fun bike I’ve ever known… but now I am lusting after those nice 9:zero:7 curves…

    That’s what I was afraid of—the credit card is so within reach… the internet is right here…

    I've been checking out the 907's as well. They do look pretty nice. I wouldn't dismantle the Pugs though...it would be a fresh build.

    If I keep the Pugs as is I can make the 907 a lightweight MTB...
    safe riding,

    this is what I recently did - stripped my pugs and swapped some bits over to a 907 (although I prefer the 2011)

    you just need a shim for the seatpost and you can use that too

    my 907 weighs 28lbs and thats with a nate on the front

    I transferred all my bits from the Pug to the 907 without problem.

    Obviously the seatpost is different. I used a shim so I could use my existing set up.

    Your bike has created quite a sensation on STW - brought out all the nasties.

    Unfortunately it DOESN'T take much to bring out the Nasties (Haters) on STW

    I am still amazed by how narrow (pun intended) minded people can be .........

    Their loss , they are missing out on all the FUN !!!!

    yeah the thread on STW has blown up - they are still in denial

    It amuses me they thing Ive got a fat bike because of fashion!

    Tims comments are interesting and have got them thinking - it all changes when you actually ride one, as he mentions

    Specially if you dare to say it feels like riding a BMX

    As far as I'm concerned, it does and I love it.

    I just got my 907 and can tell you the lines on the bike are cooler in person. The tweaking to the top/down tube is really extensive. I am trying to load pics, but having trouble.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    Or at least keep the Pugs frame so you can correct your heinous error more easily with discount parts you buy here and there...hahaha... Frank-en-Pug?

    BTW - what's STW?

    Welcome to Chain Reaction Cycles - 9:ZERO:7 Snow Bike

    I feel your pain. I'm starting to lust over it as well. I love the new frame design and geo. Just don't know how all of my Fatback branded parts will clash with it.

    I bought mine a couple days ago. An orange XL frame and a Salsa Enabler fork. I am in between sizes, 20" and 22" frame. I liked the fact the XL is a 21" frame. Once I saw them in person I was sold. Two more weeks I will buy the rest of the bike. I am fricken excited!

    I will also add the crew at Chain Reaction are super helpful, Thanks Guys!

    It's that damn ad up in the righthand corner of this page. Does look nice in orange. Funny, the Fatback banner ad at the top of the page has their bike in orange, too.

    Orange is the new FAT...

    I'd get orange as well if I was ordering a new fatty...

    I have the 2012 9:zero:7 in the red. I have been riding the rugged singletrack on it here in the UP before the snow flies. I love it!

    That being said, the orange is by far the best color in person!
