    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.

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

    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 like the green, reminds me of a 911 GT3 RS. Orange is pretty cool too.

    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..
