    Looks great! How does she handle?

    I look forward to getting mine rolling. I was thinking of trying the KMC chain myself. We'll see depending on what cassette and shifters i go with. I have a couple new sram 9spd chains.

    Are all of you running flat bars on this frame/geo? I'm looking to pick up some bars...

    9:zero:7 Love

    The purple 9:ZERO:7 absolutely rips!!! Running 810mm wide, "Loaded" green and flat bars...From OHIO The bike handles very well on the trailZ. Plenty of gears to climb @ 30T NW and 11-36 10 spd. Snow may change that??? 4.8 JJ's roll right through the through/over the rock gardens.

    I'm getting used to climbing standing up, but no wheel spin. Worked great on a long 1/2 Mile decent no fade in the Shimano 180mm brakes. Overall almost flawless so far! Except for the grips-> could use are stripping and slipping recommendation on those as the Serafas from REI a slipping! Orays??? No rock rash on the root beers yet... but first scratch and some mud....

    Peace out!

    I was running ODI risers on mine but I have a poor surgical repair on my right forearm and my wrist would hurt after long rides. I switched to Jones H Loops and it seems to have solved that problem. My son dug em and we got him Salsa Bend Bars. Just assembled most of my dad's new purple bike today and gave him Salsa Open Bars. He seems to like them but we won't know for sure until the brakes and chain ring show up.

    Know the feeling of waiting for brakes
    In my case it 'Twas worth the wait....and even reconfiguring in the end...

    I'm building new wheels for the fattie, and like an idiot, I accidentally ordered two DTSwiss front hubs rather than a front and rear. The rear should be here next week, then I can get down to business.

    I really like my ESI Chunky grips. Easy on and off w a bit of alcohol and they never budge. They are silicone foam rubber so they are insulating in the winter and still grippy when wet. I don't wear gloves in the warmer months. They even make a thicker one - Extra Chunky.

    I have always wanted to try the Ergon's. Look nice w the extra palm surface area for support.

    I think i'll be rolling the DT Swiss as well. I have word from DT that the IS 6 bolt disc version is due out at the end of this month or early next month, so i'm holding out for those.

    I look forward to building up my first set of wheels for my Purple Beast! Probably do the clown shoes on closeout.

    Anyone have a truing stand etc. they want to part with?

    Didn't you just forget to order two rears along with the two fronts and another pair of rims?
    Just helping you make excuses for all the wheels that are appearing around the house!

    Volksbike, I've been running a 28x 36-11 for the past 3 winters and it works quite well. You may wanna get another chainring for winter. The 30x36-11 sounds like a great summer ring. Sarge is 30x 36-11 and feels quite nice although he's a B+.

    Another vote for Ergons. Swapped all my bikes to Ergon Grips this year and in the process of moving to their saddles on my bikes. Very happy with their saddle & grip lineup.

    I love my 907 so much that in the summer I hang it in the basement to ensure it is never too hot, or never too cold.

    Sorry... Just noticed this. It's a Shimano XT 11-42 11 speed. It was like 3 dollars more than 10 speed. Got a Sram GX shifter and NX derailleur. It's getting a 28 tooth NW Raceface ring.
    I'm probably going to switch the drivetrain on my bike as well.

    11 sounds pretty good. I really like my XT clutch RD though. No slips on the Ergon grips on my ride today...rock solid!

    The Srams are clutch derailleurs also. Damn... Those Ergons look nice. I should have bought those for my dad's bike.
    I'll see how he does on the Peatys first.

    Mine has become my favorite bike. I ride it everywhere. Taking it to Florida next month. Can't wait to hit Boyette and Alafia on it. I've only previously ridden down there on my 29er fully.
    I ride the 907 way better than my other bike.

    If i ever visit any coastal areas i,ll be sure to bring the 907 along. Many more options now!

    I must build!! I have always trued/repaired my wheels on the bike upside down or in the stand but if i am building up wheels from parts is it best to go with a wheel stand? Or just do without.

    The truing stand will help to provide a solid reference point and get things lined up. There is a really good book by Roger Musson that shows you how to build your own stand out of wood, but if you want to get going right away, and the wheels are straightforward and not offset, it looks like you can use a fork or the frame. YMMV - I have only built one set of 26" MTB wheels ( using the fork and rear dropouts) for my Red 1986 Univega 23" MTB with the bull moose bars back in the day- As far as I know they are still rolling strong. For me, when dealing with offset fatbike wheels, the lacing on one side only of the rim for the RD it was worth the $40 at LBS to get it done...I will make an attempt for a regular fat wheel set at some point...

    You're running offset on the 907??
    Or those were for another frame?

    I have downloaded Roger's ebook but was not sure i wanted yet another project. It looks like i could just extend the width and height of his plan to accomodate the fat wheel. I am a carpenter after all.

    Dang! 1986 Univega, you got me beat. 23" no less! I think my first MTB specific bike was a Cannondale in '89 or '90.

    Surly Pugsley with offset fork. LBS built me 2 17mm offset Rabbit Hole 50mm 29+ wheels and I have one more front 82mm RD that is currently set up tubeless that needs to be rebuilt as off set with 135mm rear hub before this winter. The WB LBS guy said the offsets are more tricky and it took him a couple of trys to get it laced up right.

    Hmmm- if you are a carpenter it looks like a really nice wheel truing stand Right?

    These places I ride in Florida aren't coastal at all. I do ride mine on the beach at home in the winter. I tried to post some trail pics but for some reason could not.

    After the Univega, I had 23"1986 Raleigh Elkhorn 26er with Suntour non indexed thumb shifters that was a sweet ride...Those 2 bikes are probably why I still enjoy rigid MTB's...Next was a Cannondale F400 with a RoxSock Quadra pogostick front shock...and it went downhill from there...

    What is the rotor size with calipers mounted directly to frame and fork post mounts? In other words, sans adapters.

    160 Front and Rear??
    The tires are the things on your bike that make contact with the trail.

    Frame Bags.

    So who has what makes of bag? Pictures please!

    I had a revelate for my Ally frame but I sold it with the bike, my new Carbon frame takes a size bigger, now I am looking for a new one.

    Obviously Revelate do one through fatbikes.com but they are out of stock of the XL size which I need for the large frame and they charge an arm and a leg for shipping over the pond.

    I looked at Rogue Panda, they look good, great price with a reasonable wait time....

    So... I just finished my dad's bike tonight. We're all pretty busy so I had some time tonight. We ran over to his shop and I adjusted the spacing on the crankset and installed the brakes and made the lines longer. Bled them, adjusted everything and took it for a spin. Bike rides really nice. Pics coming.

    What happened after was kind of what I didn't need right now... My 11 year old jumped on it and it fits him perfectly. He's currently on a medium and I knew he was going to need a large soon. I'd better get him a frame while they're still on sale.
    Figures... I just built him 29+ wheels with the 135mm front hub.

    This is insane... He's always been into boats and fishing. Now, on my way in to work this morning, he's texting me asking about which pump to get and which hitch rack to get... I've never seen any bike have such an affect on people as a fat bike.

    I am genuinely interested in 9:zero:7 because they are the ONLY ones (I am aware of) that are not trending with the short chainstay thing. That is why I find them intriguing! So, in that way i am showing my Love.
    9:zero:7 is holding there line probably because they know something. I just would like to understand what that is before i invest in any frame w my hard earned $$.

    Pedal strikes suck, i know, because i also do not ride graded trails unless they lead somewhere. I have ridden my fare share of gnarly so good to know. Trails here for most part are pretty rolly singletrack. So if ever in CNY then def hit em if you get the chance.

    No banter intended here, definately not. Just hoping to learn something...
    Thanks all!
    The "longer" chain stays show their strength on climbs--- they help to deliver more traction (by keeping the front end planted, and the rear digging) They also aid in the overall stability and comfort of the bike.

    Actually, we still have a limited stock of XL Revelate frame bags at fatbikes.com -- just give us a call and we'll invoice you over the phone, and send it on its way! Having some problems with the site -- but please, always feel free to call :-)

    My experience is they give less traction on climbs. Rear wheel further back means less weight on rear so less traction. It does mean more weight on the front. So they do keep the front wheel down. I spin out from lack of weight on the rear wheel before I flip over backwards from too light on the front. Different riding styles may have different results.

    Thanks, I ordered a bag last week and Brian helped sort it out for me. Left Alaska on Thursday got to North Yorkshire in the UK Monday morning.

    If you are losing traction on a fat bike before flipping it over backwards...you might want to adjust technique. I will easily pull my front end off the ground on climbs, and the longer stays mean my front end stays manageable on the steep stuff.

    Regarding "Flipping over backwards", I was speaking with a bit of hyperbole. I Know not always clear on the internet.

    Mainly I was responding to the blanket statement that long stays were better for climbing. For me, and I suspect many others, that is not true. I'm not saying super short chain stays are always the answer just that longer is not necessarily better. As you say different people have different riding styles and there is more than one way to solve any given problem.

    That would be dependent on one's riding style and if they are capable of moving fore and aft as needed.

    Yeah, this was proven to me today.

    I went for my first dirt ride ever with the 907 - I've only ridden on snow - and near my house is a man-made snowboard park. It has an extremely steep gravel road to the top, and on my 29er I'd always spun out at least once, and had to scoot forward onto the nose of the saddle on some points. On the 907, I just sat and spun the whole way up. The only point I broke loose at all was when I stood up and cranked hard a few times just for fun.

    On that same grade, on my old Stumpjumper 26er, the nose of that saddle would have been right up my bunghole the whole time.

    The long stays work for me for the way I ride now.

    Glad you're getting some ride time in with the 907 and finding out how well it climbs. In the near future I'll be horking the parts offa my 907 to go on my Mayor that just arrived. As the budget allows I'll get the bits to put the 907 back in service with an RSD fork to bring up the BB and get it out cause I love the ride quality but can't deal with a BB that's 11.75" to center for maximum pedalstrike count. I think its a faulty build.

    Second ride on dirt in two days. Let's just say...I totally get it now. I bought this bike for winter riding, and I was dubious about it's merits in Stockholm, since there's so many miles of well-groomed cycling paths and very little in the way of unexplored territory.

    Well, it seems that in the woods nearby, there's tons of off-camber rock, angled roots, loosely-packed gravel and incredibly steep hero dirt that is now open to me. I shied away from lots of it with my 29er because it was so treacherous, even with 2.40 tires with really grippy tread.

    I spent a bunch of my time looking for crazy obstacles that are basically impossible on my other bikes just to see if I could pull them off. It changes the ride around here completely. Call me a believer.

    Schnee, now that you are completely addicted!!! Ya, the fatbike is limited by it's owner and nothing more! They are very utilitarian, kinda the land rover of the bike world and more fun than we should be allowed to have. Glad you're having the time of your life riding fat.

    Oh man, can't wait to get mine built up! Glad you're enjoying the ride! I am still gathering parts as money allows.

    Would like to get one of those frame bags too. How do you like that Revelate Schnee?

    I guess i am not understanding, it's a faulty build? What do you mean?

    The BB is a bit low i guess. What is your terrain like?

    The BB is 11.75" form the ground and the bike is a pedalstrike factory. Not exactly the ideal height for a rock crawler. I guess if every trail was perfectly graded it would be good to go. The Rocky Mountains are not smooth enough for this bike. I believe the frame is faulty due to the lack of ground clearance. The thing doesn't have to lean to pedalstrike. I have spoken to others that have 907's and their BB height is 12.75". Major difference in those #'s.


    The Mayor is 13" form the ground.

    You have spoken to others with the same exact wheel/tire setup and their bb is 1" higher? May I ask what wheels/tires you are running on your bike?

    RD's and either D5's or Bud/Lou. They are using the same, so the measurement should be closer than a 1" tolerance but then again this stuff is coming at us from china where tolerances are 1'.

    Funny enough, I have this one - a Ranger - and the bag specifically made for the 907 by Revelate. The 907 one is roomer, but the Ranger is much nicer.

    The 907-specific one has one big chamber, accessible by a zipper near the top drive-side, and a divider that basically allows water bottles to sit vertically near the tall end. That's it. That said, it's extremely wide - it fills the triangle out to the width of the bottom bracket - so it can hold a heck of a lot of stuff.

    The Ranger, on the other hand, has two horizontal chambers accessible via the drive-side, and the one on top perfectly fits a 5-liter Camelbak bladder and has a port for the hose. The bottom chamber is perfect for a compact pump, tools, and mini-U lock. The non-drive side has a full-length, thin pocket tall enough for an iPhone+ on it's side. I store my keys, phone, and credit cards in there. The overall bag itself is not terribly wide - it's made for non-fat bikes, so it expects a narrower bottom bracket.

    Wow! A 1" difference! Aside from different wheel/tire combo's that is, well... Have you talked to 9:zero:7 about it?

    Do you have the '14-'15 197 aluminum frame?

    It's one of the last aluminum 14's. the 15 models were revised with thru axle. Yeah, I thought this one might have been a blem because of the absurd BB drop. It's perfect for Van Nuys Blvd. on Wednesday nite tho'! Lowrider, get a little lower, lowrider, drive a little slower...

    Sent an email just after I built it up and never heard back. Now I will try contacting em again to see if this was the norm for the 14's or if I do in fact have a blem. Being that it's now 16 and my frame is a 14, not expecting they would do anything but never know.

    I like that silver!

    It's hard to say but the chainstay and BB does look different than the bike in their stock photo:
    9:zero:7 Love-image.jpg

    That's a strange botch but i suppose it could happen. Maybe used the wrong jig or the jig slipped or something.

    Maybe you'll get to change your opinion that 907's are prone to pedal strike!

    Yeah... Banshee, I measured a thru axle frame. I have a black ano bike like yours but it's apart right now. I can probably convert a wheel to qr and get a measurement on that frame for you as well.
    I gotta say though, I rode that bike for two years with 180mm cranks and didn't strike any more than with the new frame.

    Yes, hard to find a comparable photo where the perspective is similar to the one Banshee posted.

    Do all the bikes not have a 60mm BB drop though? In my simple brain, surely the easiest way to measure is a line from axle to axle and measure the drop... if the BB is that low it would look more like a 90mm drop than 60mm.... then you take any tyre rim combo out the equation??

    Working with Jlynn on it at the moment! I wish I had received the PM prior to stealing the parts and slipping em on the Mayor.
    Hopefully we can figure out a solution, cause I really have enjoyed the 907 over the past couple years.
    It was kind sad kypiing the parts from it. Time to set a budget aside for it's revival, I guess. There is considerable sentimental value in the 907 cause the bike was my cardiac therapist from the time I had the M. I. and surgery til now. I still have the hand written prescription from the cardiologist for the fatty! Gotta find it so I can post it up, kewl stuff, considering all I was going through at the time. I was part way through the build when the M. I. occurred. Fvck, I need to get the 907 back on track!

    ^Good to hear jlynn has been able to find the time to respond after all those years! Sad that you gave up on the bike so easy, but I guess when you experience poor/zero communication you start to lose faith.

    Same thing is happening with my buddy right now. I convinced him that he needed to upgrade his AL 9:ZERO:7 to a Carbon, he was worried about the Carbon clearing 4.8's on 100mm rims. Stated they would fit on the website, but guess what doesn't fit? Doesn't even clear Knards on 90mm rims.

    Now they want HIM to pay for shipping back to Alaska to look at the bike, that is a pretty penny too. I am really bummed that he switched to carbon cuz of me, now has to ditch his big tire setup.

    johnshonda, it's been 2 years of daily driving this bike. I was really saddened taking parts off it and putting them on the mayor since the 907 has been with me through a massive coronary (a month before the build was completed) and cardiac rehab. This bike has great deal of sentimental value, indeed! This decision was not arrived at readily or done lightly, rest assured.

    After having a convo with Brian at 907, I learned that the fork is the last of the non-suspension corrected forks. At least now I have a logical answer and no linger believe the frame is a blem. I will be ordering a fork in the near future and building my good friend back up and resolving an empty spot in the collective!

    Sorry to hear of your friend's experience with the plastic frame. Seems very unusual for anything 907 to not clear a 4.8.
    The shipping will be rather expensive due to insurance along with the shipping cost. Not fun at all. Hope they get it sorted.

    To Jlynn, my fatbike doesn't think he should be relegated to a season!

    Yeah, definitely. That said, I meant to say before the new bike is significantly different *technically* - which may explain his BB drop issue where my bike is fine. It's hard to tell their different years/models apart other than the frame logos.

    That makes perfect sense in hindsight.

    It's a matter of the A/C installed on a frame as to how the -60 will work in the real world. Funny to learn that my bike is currently equipped with a non- corrected fork which has a shorter A/C than a suspension corrected fork. So yeah, I have the cruise night fork and not the Land Rover/Jeep fork! Doh! I need a wheelset, bars & stem and I'll have a SS FatA$$ to ride! Oh, and the Jeep trail rated fork! lol...

    'Twas tempted but maybe next time I get out that way.

    Someone also left a whole boat behind in the general area, as lots of kids party in that neck of the woods, with Graduation season and all, I figured someone had such a good time they forgot their chair?

    Sounds about right 120-130mm ish 😃 I like 'em long since I am so tall. ..Also you or NY was right about the stock seatpost clamp. It kept slipsliding away and I finally replaced it with a Salsa QR. Lol

    There's a reason I have calluses on my knuckles... lol I went the 800mm bar route with a 70mm stem and it works out nicely. Power steering in the river rock Jeepin area is awesome. In the trees I have to dance my way through. Catastrophic when I mess up tho'.

    Anyone thinking about a 9Zero7 purple special I can confirm that the color is not as light as the website pictures. Much darker color. I was prepared to get mine powercoated but I now don't think it is needed. The finish is nicely done with clear coated decals. With black components it will be pretty low key.

    Any feedback on the 9:zero:7 carbon rims? 80mm or 100mm. I'm looking to buy a set here this fall.

    If you are putting together a 9zero7 purple special, and you are as cheap as I am, you might find this e Thriteen crank interesting. It is really nicely made but has a proprietary 30mm BB. But most things are prorietary these days. Made for the wide rear spacing of the purple whiteout 197 with a 128mm spindle for a 100mm standard BSC threaded BB shell. Auction does not include the BB.Comes with spacers to move the BB around for chainline.

    My son took the 9:ZERO:7 out for a ride and loved it...he still has some growing to do to fit the XL frame, but I was surprised how easily he handled it...
