    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...

    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.

    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?

    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.

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

    I'm falling for these bikes too. I decided I'm going to sell my Jabberwocky SS, Surly Long Haul Trucker, and my blinged out Pugs to get a red 907 with their Nome build kit. Once I get it and I'm going to take my XTR levers, thumbies, and Groovy bars off the pug and replace it with the stuff from the Nome build kit. Time to get posting on Craigslist!

    I had been considering the orange anodised Fatback for a while, put a deposit in for a complete build one year ago… I had to pull out in April since things weren’t happening (apparently not Greg’s fault). The 9:zero:7 frames would look tits on a ritz anodised, I am already having thoughts of just getting a raw frame (if that’s even possible) and sending it off to an anodising shop. Yeah, I know, I need to buy the frame first. If not the anodised route, then the orange paint will have to do.

    just a heads up, the red isn't quite ferrari red as I had hoped. more of a ferrari red-orange, so to speak. it sure looks red but it's got a hint of orange.

    So how does ordering a 907 work.....is it really as simple as getting on the website and clicking buy? Are they really in stock? I just want to make sure its not like Fatback where the frames are always coming soon.

    Last time I was in the physical shop, there were quite a few 2012s hanging from the rafters of all colors and sizes. Of course it wouldn't hurt to shoot them a quick call to see if your particular size and color is in stock..

    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.

    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.

    That thing looks badass! I like the Fatback fork. Do you have it set up as a 1x10?

    Thanks. I have it setup as a 1x10 for now. Not sure how it will be with the BFL's but I should have some time to ride tomorrow to test out the bigger tires. I used a 3x10 on my Fatback last season but mostly stayed in the middle ring so I thought I would keep this one simple. Really stoked on the frame though. Crazy stand over height.

    Anyone have a BFL mounted on a 100m rim in the rear yet? Just curious if there is enough clearance in the chain and seat stays. I saw the Facebook pic but my clearance looks almost the same on a 70mm.

    Where did you get 180mm cranks? I asked my bike shop before ordering and they said the 100mm bb cranks only come in 175mm.

    I know you can order from e.13 online now, and they sell 170-180 online...I think your bike shop might have been misinformed? Also, can be bought straight from fatbackbike.

    I have an 80mm flattop rim mounted to a BFL in the back, plenty of room. Actually, I think there is more room than the regular larry, same rim, and the 2011 frame.
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    Cannot wait to build it… but I need to at least wait until my wife gets her size small red 9:zero:7 frame from Santy Claws, and then I can first build hers.

    You need to "practice" the buildup on yours first, that way you get it perfect on her bike. "Honestly honey, I did it for you."

    Nah, I’m just swapping components (minus the seatpost) from my Pugsley to my 9:zero:7, whereas hers has a complete Susitna build kit ready to throw on there. Additionally, she doesn’t even know I bought her one, so the element of surprise is on tap here. For sure these are exciting times!

    Thanks guys - I'm digging the style of the new frames too! As for the fork, I like it. I haven't had time to ride that much yet though - hopefully tomorrow. I think some of the other forks look cooler (like the White Bros) but there is only so much funds to go around.

    I'm a shade under 6'3 with a pant inseam of 34 (though 35 would be perfect if I could find it). My crotch measure was like 35.& 7/8's. I find my knee is a tad forward over the pedal spindle and I have been sitting back on the seat a tad. Like I said i only got one ride in though. I am far from having this thing dialed in for me.

    Give a setback Thomson post a try. I'm a little taller than you with a slightly longer inseam and I got my XL to fit really nice with that post. Great bike by the way!
