    Oh yeah, will need to pick up a chain too.

    I sprayed the inside of the frame w/ a lanolin based metal protectant. It's natural, non-toxic and called Fluid Film.

    Nice Ride, by the way Fat Tracks! Have you ridden a Whiteout in comparison to the Tundra?

    Got it together for first FAT Ride!

    Well i finally got it together for my first on trail fatty ride and I Love it!
    9:zero:7 Love-image.jpg

    The single track was awesome! Then i hit some corduroy making sure not to ride on the skiers precious tracks. It was fast! Just like summer riding 'cause the snow is all tamped down. So sweet! The grip and stability is amazing compared to my 2.35 Nevegals.

    If i got off any tamped or groomed trail though i was NOT going anywhere.

    Running D4's at 4 psi in the front and 6.5 in the back.

    Very nice! But why'd you stop at Dillinger 4's? 5's fit in that frame easy.

    Yeah there is plenty of room for the 5's or bigger. I just thought the 4's would be plenty and fit the 65mm rims better.

    maybe i can start saving for some 90's or 100's

    We also get a snow, melt, rain, freeze cycle here and thought the 4's may be better all around. Upstate Ny

    I also weigh only 150

    Of course now i want a second xtra fat wheelset for those other times.

    What is the biggeest tire that fits in the rear of the 907 med.?

    Nice job on the build. Looks like it was worth the wait and you have snow to boot!!

    Yep/ I run 4.8 Lou on 100's. Fits fine. 4.8 Knard is bigger and fits fine also. If you only weigh 150, you're right, the 4's are probably plenty.

    Damn... Where upstate are you? We have nothing on Long Island. Raining right now.

    Is the Knard the biggest option that will fit the rear? Id like to run the 2xl in the front if the difference between F/R does not rake it out too much. You know for soft go anywhere adventure riding.

    I am South of Syracuse in the hills. About 1500' ASL. Excellent singletrack around here!

    I'm sure they do. I know the 2XL does not fit the rear though.

    The Knard on a Clownshoe when tubeless gets a little close but it fits perfectly.
    I can't imagine running a Knard with a 2XL though. The Knard is a great dirt and sand tire. Not really a fantastic snow tire. I'd run Lou.

    I had a perfect ride a few weeks ago in about 8-9" of powder.
    We have a foot of wet, heavy, icy crap falling right now. I'll try to ride it tomorrow afternoon or Saturday. Not having high hopes though.
    Probably have to ride the beach.

    Just wanted to throw some love 9:ZERO:7's way! I have a set of CSs laced to 9:ZERO:7 hubs that I got a few years back, and to my dismay I blew up the rear hub the other day. I called my closest 9:ZERO:7 dealer to see how to proceed, and within hours I'd gotten an email from HQ in AK that asked for shipping info, which was shortly followed by notification that the replacement parts were being sent out foc.
    I was back out on the snow with minimal down time!
    Just another example of the awesome customer service those fellas in AK provide.

    I haven't touched my fat whip but a couple times this winter. it's shod with dunders and flows, and I don't want to ride them outside the white stuff.
    anybody rocking some 29+ on the aluminum whiteout in the offseason?
    I may have to get to some 2 wheel consolidating.

    Only warning I have about the Duallys...
    Chupacabras and WTB Rangers seat up and stay on perfectly. Vittoria Bombolonis do not. Maybe go with a WTB Scraper or Stan's Hugo. It's too bad because I really like Velocity.
    I also really like running the 29+ rear wheel with my fat front wheel. It works really well.

    In the summer I've been running 29x3's: Easton ARC 45's with a WTB Ranger on the front (not in this picture) and a Maxxis Chronicle on the rear. My frame is a carbon Whiteout. I'm very happy with the performance.

    Looks the arc 40's might be the bees knees for me here.
    I definitely don't want to go too wide.

    Or I'm overthinking it and should just pickup a set of summer tires and sell the surly altogether.

    I just put a set of Big Fat Larrys on my bike for the first time ever and was amazed how fast it rolls on pavement and beach sand. I even rode it on singletrack last weekend and was pretty amazed how well it worked. It wasn't the sliding, out of control death fest I was expecting.

    I stated on fat'b'nimbles which I thought were great until I slashed the sidewalls.
    the 907 is also considerably heavier than it's predecessor, but the price was right.
    I'm really just suffering from too much stuff this winter. as in- I have too many things.

    Never check the sharpness of your pocket knife that closely to your fat tires!!
    Suffering from too much *cough* stuff, or the CC payments??
    I'm curious as to the weight issue, my 2014 was surprisingly light. I had the RD/Hope wheels on it prior to the Mayor.


    On another note, the 2014 will be going back together in the near future with the original RD's and a new fork. Will be kewl to have two functional fatties to play with!

    no cc payments for me, thankfully.
    literally too much stuff: 6 of my bicycles 2 of hers, 1 of the kid's, one Yamaha scooter, one dirt bike and a cafe project I intend to start working on this spring.
    ideally I'd trim down to a full squish, a cx/gravel rig with a set of decent road wheels and the 9z7 with the 80mm hoops and a set of 29+ wheels.
    (at least thats where my head is at right now)

    as far as weight, the 9z7 replaced a chiner carbon fat frame that I cracked. that build with the fan's was just under 27lbs. the 9z7 with the beists is over 30, maybe over 31, I forget.
    I like the 9z7 enough to not worry about it, I think I still need a fat bike for winter in New England despite 1 snow ride this season.

    I can't get enough of riding fat these days. Between the Mayor, Sarge and soon the '14 9z7 will be back on the prowl. 9z7 was just south of 27 #'s sportin Bud/Lou with Surly Lite toobz. Looking forward to getting the 9z7 out for some rides again.
