    Fire sale on RSD frame and fork set. Similar to Whiteout pricing. Might be able to get a carbon fork for around $210? I wonder what RSD is coming out with next ?

    I just dropped my BHS hubs off with Steve on Tuesday and he is building my wheels with HED BADs. I grew up in the town his shop is in and did his winter fat bike ride in January with about 60 other people!! I'm about 30 minutes away to the west. Great guy and he used to have a mobile service which is how he started his shop. He is also very fast on the cross bike and supports a lot of local events.

    Thanks! It’s a stock 9:zero:7 135mm hub spaced carbon fork from late 2014. If I remember correctly the fork weighs just over a pound, pretty damn light for fat! Must be made from angel farts and feathers!

    Here's pics of my new Vee Bulldozer. I like this tire so far.
    So I'm starting to think about the 29+ thing. Looks like those 3.25's fit just fine. Is that the largest 29+ available right now? What is the O.D. Of that?

    One thing i don't like about non-fat when i go ride my 26 full squish is the chatter and skinny tires popping side to side often searching for traction. Do the mid fat (plus tires) do that? My 4.0's don't really do that at all except in very challenging circumstances.

    My b+ bikes don't tend to wander like conventional bikes do. At moderate pressures they are awesome. Two b+'s now, a full squish and Sarge. The ride of + is very similar to fat in that the tires are very sensitive to minor changes in psi.

    The 29+ wheels go where I point em very much like fat, only faster. I love em.
    After a few rides, I moved that Bulldozer to the front and put a Chupacabra back on the rear. Works great like that.
    I'll measure the diameter when I get home. It's a little taller than a Chupacabra.

    HED's mounted on BHS 6 bolt hubs - very light pre-tire and apparently no tape required. JJ 4.8's with a patched lite skin for front and snake skin on rear. Quick--> where is the tyre label guy from Scotland to tell me how to line them up B-4 I mount them? Mr. Wiggles looks confused

    P.S. I predict the flying Scotsman will say the rims are mounted bass Ackwards and need to be restrung!!! Not going to happen

    They spin nice loud freehub and all. No complaints and I will try to weigh the built wheels but they do feel very light. Might have to use a SRAM GX 30T NW crank that I already own in the interim but I still think the XL frame with tubeless JJs will be sub 30 lbs!!!

    Sweet! Going to be a nice ride!

    JJ's are 4.8, right?

    Hey, is 907 going to ever consider a full squish again?

    Drill my frame!

    I'm considering a dropper post for my Whiteout but it is not drilled for internal routing. I'm not very familiar w droppers. I'm considering the Thomson Elite or the Bikeyoke Revive. Prefer the new design of the Revive.

    I am good with tools and my hands but am concerned about stresses that may result from a hole and possible cracks. Anyone drill there Whiteout frame?

    If so, where to drill and why?

    They drilled it when they installed the bottle cage mounts. I'm sure another hole isn't going to make or break the frame.

    Seriously the one way 9:zero:7 could’ve made the purple aluminum frame better would have to be the addition of metal flake into the paint.

    I rode mine last night twelve miles full fat. Haven't done that since last winter. I usually run 29+ rear, fat front.
    Anyway, I had a blast.

    May be purchasing a used 2015 Whiteout. Looking for opinions, what's the largest or best tire combo for this rig?

    Any links to deals on the tires you're suggesting?

    Thanks in advance!

    Im running a snowshoe 2Xl in the front and a D5 in the back of my 15 Whiteout all year round. Took my bike to my LBS 2 weeks ago wanting t'go tubeless. Little did i know the stock 9zero7 rims that come with the frame arent tubeless ready. Anyway...the combo's heavy but its like riding a bulldozer lol. Totally worth it....

    I've run my Whiteout with Bud and Lou on Clownshoes and 4.8 Knard on Clownshoes. All fits mint.
    Currently, it has Bud front and Knard rear on My Other Brother Darryls. Fits fine.
    I've never tried a Snowshoe 2XL.
    I also run 29x3 Chupacabras and Vee Bulldozers on 45mm rims. All fit fine as well.

    If you're looking for a nice set of tubeless ready wheels for cheap hit me up. I have a set of SunRingle Mulefut 80 rims laced to a Salsa 150x15 front hub and Bontrager (Formula) 197x12 hub. They are true, straight, round, and taped for tubeless. I am looking for $350.

    Total noob to the FB scene... are the tires I run dependent on my rim width?

    Wider rims make the tire casing wider, the tread will have a flatter profile, the sidewall will be shorter, and it can be run at lower pressures without squirm.

    The wider casing can cause rub on the chain/frame than a narrower rim hence what NYrr said about it fitting properly

    Ah, yes... somewhere in the recesses of my mind that sounds familiar. Thank you.

    So, assuming this comes with the original rims what are my options? I thought I read somewhere in this thread that the bud/lou combo with the original rims didn't work, is that correct?

    Again, thanks for the info I appreciate it! It feels like it's been a while since I've had so many questions about a bike, so thank you all.

    The 2015 Whiteout will absolutely work with Bud and Lou on 65, 80 or 100mm rims.

    It will also fit 27.5+ and 29+.

    Here is a little conundrum for a Monday night... what spacing hub does my whiteout carbon forks run (the 1st gen black and orange model) Front or Rear disc spacing?? My googlefu isn't turning up much since they removed the classic geo charts. My gut tells me it might be a FDS as this was about the time that it became the norm, my first Alu frame had RDS forks and that makes me wonder.

    1...2...3...Go!
