    Oh yes, we will make sure they are oriented correctly. When I mounted my Chupas on my Arc 40's for my 29+ bike, my goodness did those rim stickers annoy me, the normal 'label to valve' alignment meant one of the Arc's was upside down for the photos I had to take the tyres off to get the wheels rebuilt, so I re-aligned when I put them back!

    Those are sweet. How do you like the Chups on those rims?
    I currently have Chupacabras on Velocity Duallys wich are 45mm. I just bought a Krampus frameset so I was going to get the Arcs in 40mm for that.

    Love the Chupas, very pressure critical though, I find... a couple of PSI too much and they go rock hard, too soft and understeer city... a case of finding the pressure sweet spot.

    One thing with the ARC's is that they are a bit tricky to get the tyres aired up, the centre is concave so the beads want to go towards the lowest point of the rim.... once aired up though they are great. Nice and light, mine are laced with D-Light spokes onto i9 hubs.

    NOOOOOO! I think I just found a crack across the front of the seat tube on my green 907.

    I'm about 3 1/2 weeks away from traveling and taking the bike. Gotta act fast. Either get a new frame or finish the Krampus.
    Wife's not gonna like either option.

    907 will probably warranty it and give you a new frame, which the wife shouldn't mind

    That is really confusing then. That post must flex a lot to crack your frame. Hope 907 warranties it for you even though you painted it. I know Surly warranties repainted frames.

    Seems like they're not interested in warranting this. They did offer me a frame at a rock bottom price. What else can I do? Guess I gotta take it.

    Have you thought about having it repaired?

    Out of curiosity do you mind telling me what price they quoted you?

    I'd be interested in buying it for cheap for the fork/maybe trying to weld it myself if you'd be down to sell it.

    I actually have a guy that I was going to show it to to see if it could be welded. Based on what he says, it might become wall art. Umm... I guess maybe I could let it go cheap, only catch is 907 quoted me 250 for a frame only so I would need the fork. They'll sell me a frameset for 499 just like anyone else.

    Update... Just spoke to my guy. He says he can weld it. I'll keep everyone posted.

    It'll be kinda cool having a frankensteined bike.

    Ok. Got it welded. He did a great job. Put it all back together. Replaced the setback post with a straight post and the 80mm stem with a 90. With my weight moved a little forward it shouldn't happen again.
    I'll get it re coated after I finish my Krampus. Just need a cassette and brakes.

    Rode it this past weekend. No new breakage. Weld held and the slightly forward riding position is working well.

    Mine broke at the same place, as well as the seat stays; 907 warranties mine, though, but they sent me a purple frame that they were closing out.

    As long as you don't have a setback post on it, it's probably fine. I'm positive that's what caused it. That and me catching air.

    Don't do it with 29+ in the rear either. I had the perfect storm for a crack. 29+ rear wheel, setback post, 80mm stem, jones bars, agressive riding and me weighing 245. I'm actually surprised it didn't crack sooner.

    I run 29+ too

    But I'm 6'1 135lbs so I shouldn't be cracking anything.

    Won't crack the bike but maybe himself at that height and weight. Is that a typo or are you really 135lbs? I thought I was skinny when I was 5'9 135.

    No typo

    I wouldn't mind putting a little more meat on my bones but it seems impossible no matter how hard I try.

    You need to hang with me for a week. I bike and do a badass kickboxing class three times a week and I still weigh about 245. I like food too damn much.

    Hey NYrr - Cringing catching up on your seat post frame crack debacle!! Looks like you solved it ok in the end with the welder! We both have XL frames with a lot of post showing. I Just Went and checked mine and no cracks yet- Whew. But my seat post is bent! I'd like to replace it with a thud buster or a thompson.

    Any recommendations? What size again?

    Thanks!

    Any recommendations? What size again?

    Thanks!

    Wow. Yeah that's bent.
    Like Charge said it's 30.9. I had a Thomson setback post in mine. 410mm long. I switched it to a straight Thomson also 410. I also switched my 80mm stem to a 90.

    lol, had ta go there!!

    On another note, my 907 was heavily involved in my cardiac rehab after having an MI 3 years ago. The 907 has been on mothballs for a year after the Mayor came into the collective. Soon enough, the 907 will be back on the job. Parts are being massed for the resurrection of the bike that was a key player in my recovery.

    Good times!

    Raceface Aeffects are light for the money. Wolftooth ring.

    Throw that seatpost clamp in a field and get a Salsa.

    Carbon bars, Bike Hub Store hubs (they're very light), Niner RDO stem, Supercomp spokes, maybe Surly Other Brother Darryls if you don't want to spring for carbon wheels.

    Great advice thanks! Time to save up for some bsd hubs I think front and rear cost about $220 which is the cost for just the Dt Swiss rear! Remember the part about the clamp 🤛 will have to price the cranks. No hurry on this build.

    If you want a 26lb build, you are going to have to spring for Next SL G4 cranks!

    I just put a 29x3.25" Vee Bulldozer on the back of my bike. Looks awesome. I have to get flatter button head bolts for the fender bolt holes. They come CLOSE. I'll post pics first chance I get.

    IF it says "Next" on it it's gotta be from WallyMart!

    With those of you riding with lotsa post showing, how much post is in the frame? I'd say if 3-4" of post overlap is present, you'll be less likely to have cracks appearing where Nyrr did. And no, y'all should be well offa da seat doing any sorta drop action regardless of weight.

    When it comes to play time (catching air) You should have the seat down outta da way so you can actually bend your knees and soak up the kinetics associated with landings to keep your bike from developing arthritis! (frame fatigue) This is gonna happen over a longer lifespan if you have room to keep it loose and take up the impacts. For a bean pole, I've gone through many frames from heavy riding style. The clydes doesn't reference rider weight it references riding style, be it heavy or light.

    Nyrr, those drops from the rooftop are gonna hafta stop! You're killing me... Says Mr. 907!!


    On build weight of my 2014, it came in just under 27 #'s. Gonna get it back on the prowl in the near future with an RSD plastico fork and the original wheels. Just need a couple other parts and to lace up a set of wheels for the Mayor. Parts bin is lookin ripe for the pickin on the resurgence of the 907! Looking forward to getting it out for a rip down some singletrack once again.

    I know EXACTLY where that crack happened. I was doing a banked right turn with a small drop that then continues downhill shortly and then back up. I'm sure my butt hit the seat upon landing on the way down. I've done it four or five times since fixing. Been fine.

    I've got about six inches of post in the frame. I'm convinced it was the setback post that caused this. Put too much load too far back.

    If you never want to see this happen again, get some enduro bearings from RWC (real world cycling) to pop in your cups. The bearings are bigger and work w/out that plastic spacer. Bigger balls last longer too.

    Ok. Got it welded. He did a great job. Put it all back together. Replaced the setback post with a straight post and the 80mm stem with a 90. With my weight moved a little forward it shouldn't happen again.
    I'll get it re coated after I finish my Krampus. Just need a cassette and brakes.
    Bummer on the crack. Good go at fixing it though. Prob worth while in such an accessible spot. How about adding a small gusset?
    Is that a hairline on the top of the top tube that goes down past the corner of the sticker?

    Great! I bet you'll love it. I know you had trouble w pedal strikes but it must have been the fork or whatever strange frame thing you had going on, that 907 warrantied for ya.

    I'm interested to hear your experience w the new setup!

    My Whiteout def sees plenty of rocky trails here in the NE and i rarely get pedal strikes. It's been great! I mean it could always be higher but it could on most bikes and i'm running 4's on 65's. A little racheting helps.

    The highest BB bike i've ridden is a ellsworth id. Up there

    I'm thinking the 490 A/C fork will be what the Dr. ordered. Sure will beat the hell outta the early lowrider fork. One of the mistakes that 907 had in production in '14. Can't say I don't love that bike cause it's been awesome other than incorrect A/C fork outta the gate. Can you say Jeep??

    I was actually a little surprised he just welded it. I thought for sure he would have sleeved or gusseted it but he felt confident the weld was plenty.
    No more cracks. If you mean that black mark, it's just a burn mark from welding.

    Do you have a picture of RSD carbon fork next to the 9:ZERO:7 fork and are the major differences rake and crown height? Just trying to see if the RSD fork is worth the money and if the steerer tube uncut will fit a Whiteout XL!

    With all this talk about bigger ball bearings and seat post insertion I'm beginning to wonder...

    That fork should fit the Whiteout. I still have not found a weight for that carbon fork but it prob is at least a bit lighter. I thought of one but i just dig the matching purple fork too much to save some grams.

    My Whiteout came in at just under 26# but i have a Med. frame.

    That was w/ JJ 4.0 on Nextie 65mm rims w DT hubs.
    DB spokes and alloy nipples.
    GX 1400 crankset (w removable spider)
    Deity tmo enduro carbon bar
    Xt brakes
    Lightweight alloy stem and seatpost
    ESI chunky grips

    Fenders!

    It has been so wet, that the trails have not had a chance to dry out so i have outfitted some big O fenders w custom stays.

    Put a little flair on em too w a heat gun.

    The Nexties are expensive but the tubeless setup is so easy and of course they save plenty of weight in the fatty arena. Super Easy to build too.

    For years when considering carbon for my skinny tired mtb, i was like "meh" but thought it was worth it for the fatty.

    Good point on when to break out the carbon. I ordered HED Big Deal AL at 600 grams. Not sure how they compare to the Nexties in weight and strength. I did just hear a few clydes on the fat bikes page that dented them which never happened to my RDs. It would not be fun to dent a $200 rim

    The are warranted for "snow only" ?? WTF

    When I was wheelbuilding for the fat bike shop, the owner bought himself a set of Heds. He put HuskerDus on em and while the bike was fast and light, he was trail riding and cracked the rim on a rock.
    Oddly, Hed warrantied it and the second time around he put Dillinger5's on them. They lasted fine after that. You just need enough tire volume to protect carbon rims.

    I'm 215#, rolling on a set of HED BAD 80mm over rocks, roots, sand, snow... no dents, no cracks. Bud/Lou studded for snow, JJ's 4.8" for dirt. Bike is setup rigid.

    You can break anything if you try hard enough, I've not had any issues with these wheels, the ease of tubeless is remarkable.

    Thanks I'm in for the HED BadA$$ rims. I have the both sets of the JJs and Surly tires you running !! Not studded though. My used Bud did not want to go tubeless on 82mm RD's even at the LBS!!🤣 it 'Twas more like an oversized donut on the Rolling Daryll.

    My guess is that the cassette will not bite back onto the freehub body. Like it does on most aluminum freehub bodies.

    ^^ That's exactly what it does. Alittle bit of steel machined into the freehub body. Just like american classic does on the fatlab hub and there own hubs.

    I like it!

    I wish Dt Swiss and Hope and others did it too
    The tires are the things on your bike that make contact with the trail.

    Going Big for some Float this winter

    I just picked up some used Clown Shoes. I'm partial to the dt swiss big rides but... Maybe these BHS hubs are just the thing for them? Hmmm

    Any long term reports?

    Oddly, Hed warrantied it and the second time around he put Dillinger5's on them. They lasted fine after that. You just need enough tire volume to protect carbon rims.
    This it what StevetheBikeGuy also told me!! 4.0s no go where as 4.8s are fine. Weird! All in the name of saving 1 pound per wheel!

    No long term reports here yet but others are not complaining about BHS. They look pretty basic to me, not as fancy as the DT's. But news about bad hubs (and BAD rims) travels fast!

    Sweet Clown Shoes- Hhhmmm you have the rims and I have the hubs...
