    Got the 907 frame today. Holy hell is it burly! I have a Surly ICT and I did a double take when I saw the welds and the beefiness of the tubing! The polished finish is freakin' gorgeous!

    Also, my silver Clownshoe wheels from my ICT look pretty sick against the polished frame

    Stay tuned

    Yes. The Lynx. I don't know any details about it. I'm guessing it is the updated Tundra geo in carbon format.

    Today's ride, nice to have snow again! Love my 9:zero:7, can't wait for details on the new carbon Lynx. My guess is it's a carbon version of the Tundra. May be time to upgrade from my 2013.

    Wouldn't a carbon Tundra still just be a Tundra? Since we're seeing pictures of the guys racing on it - Will Ross raced it in the Birkie - I'm guessing it's an updated version of the longer wheelbase race bike. I think he usually races a carbon Whiteout? Looking at pics, it also looks like the head angle is quite slack, but maybe that's just the camera angles.

    Tundra is shorter chain stays, shorter front stack, and internal dropper routing.

    My frame is bent. The wheel has more clearance on one side and is properly dished.

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAARGH.

    OK now that I vented I will try to warranty it

    Hmmmm, i built my wheelset in my frame. The wheels are centered to the frame so i would never know if the frame was out. Ha Ha

    I'll have a look see.

    Good luck w the frame!

    Very interesting....

    Tell me more. Pic?

    I'm thinking a 27.5+ on the fatty as it is about the same diameter as 26x4.0

    The dual between my full squish and 907 fatty is on for year round riding!

    So much better than I expected!

    Sunday was my first ride on the fatty where there was no wintry mix or tons of water and mud. (Which is fine) We went to a place where it is usually fairly dry as it is rocky and well drained.

    I was expecting my bike to be a little slower and sloppy compared to my skinny full squish 26'r. Wow! Was I wrong!

    My 9:zero:7 rocks! Where i'd be fighting to hold a line on the skinny, the fatty just consumed it all! This thing rolls fast! So much fun!

    9:zero:7 Love-img_2951.jpg

    I went w 65mm nexties and JJ LS 4.0 ' for summer riding cause i thought a fatty would be, well... slow and heavy but it is NOT!

    I was running 6 psi in front and 8 rear. Gonna try 7 and 9 cause i was getting a few rim strikes and the front tire folded on me twice when i really leaned it over hard. But this rails! Long chainstays? No problem yet.

    Now i'm thinking...bluto. But really full rigid was just fine on the rocks and roots too, so we'll see. But maybe sell all my bikes except the Whiteout and...

    C'mon 9:zero7! Where is the full squish fatty, already?

    9:zero:7 Love

    Entered the 9:Zero:7 in a local race...Not too many fat bikes mostly full susp MTB but I managed to survive. Bike held up well except for the gash in my rear JJ sidewall - had to reload the Stan's just prior to the race!! It was fun to ride a bike I put together!

    Really not many people who can build a bike from scratch. I am amazed at how many can't repair a flat. So definitely an accomplishment, congratulations.

    Good job on the race, Volks. The shop I hang with invited me to race in their annual race. Said there's going to be a fat bike class. I was in until I saw that the entry fee is 75 bucks. I can ride slow for free.
    I like turtles
