    9:zero:7 Love

    Hey gang,
    I haven't post much in the past few years and have been checking in recently to do a little reading. Back in 2013 when I built up my 9:zero:7 McGrath, there weren't many bike choices and there was a huge shortage of inventory, parts, etc. At the time 9:zero:7, Salsa and Surly were big and then everyone jumped on the bandwagon. now the market is flooded with fatbikes, prices have come down, and I don't see much writen about 9:zero:7 fat bikes. I love mine and enjoy every ride. anyone else still have love for their 9:zero:7?

    ^I am still liking my 9:ZERO:7. Had a 2013 first which was great, then got the 2015 w/ the thru axles and 150mm fork an really like that. My buddy has a 2014 and liked it enough to get the 2015 Carbon. I like how the frames evolve w/ 9:ZERO:7, then they aren't just pimping new color schemes every year!

    I don't know if I am too fond of the new GIANT freaking graphics on the team issue carbons though! I do hope to have their carbon fork soon though.

    I'm still riding a 190/135 9Zero7 and I still love the bike.

    I was going to order a new black ano tapered headset, thru axle bike so I emailed them and asked if they could sell me a black bike with black decals since red isn't my thing. They replied they do not have decals and don't even know how to remove the red ones.
    I've already built new 29+ wheels and used a 150mm thru type hub in the front. Now I either have to re lace the wheel with a new hub or get the black and red frame. Not the end of the world, but ya know...

    I'm on my 2nd 9:Zero:7, upgraded to a 150/197 from a 135mm rear frame. I still love it.

    You could always have the frame repainted- they sent me a purple frame and fork as a warranty and there's no reason a guy my size should ever ride a purple bike... I had it powder coated for $137 and change.

    I have a 2014 135/190 frame (Susitna), its been a great bike! I run HuDu tires on it in the summer and a Bud/Bud combo in winter. I've added Jones bars, Ouri grips, and a one up 42 cog, but other than that its stock.9:zero:7 Love-fullsizerender-25-.jpg9:zero:7 Love-fullsizerender-26-.jpg

    We like a bit of 9:zero:7 love! I started out with a 2013 and rode it so much I wore out the rear knard to being a slick!

    I then admired Anortherncrazy's bike from the pictures he was posting and after a rush of blood the head ended up with this....

    Purple here. I love it. It's a lot darker in person, so it looks more like an eggplant than something feminine.

    Still running the '14 135/190. 1x10 with 28/36-11 works nicely with a short cage X9 type II rd. It's fun but needs a higher BB so it doesn't get high centered so easily. Gotta love that bike tho'.

    The big change to these has been the addition of thru axle and taper hs. Not that a 44/44 wouldn't serve that purpose.

    I had the 2013 frame which my wife now rides. We moved near a nice trail network recently and she has really embraced it this year. She is out every morning. I now ride a 2015 with DT Swiss wheels in winter and Hugo's insummer. They both been great bikes

    Can you still get the offset frames? I'd like to swap over Pugsley parts to one.

    The listing on fatbikes.com states the slider frame as symmetrical 170. It comes with crankset/bb, 150 ta fork, headset and hubs for 1199. Looks like they discontinued the offset frame.

    I'm ordering up a purple frame tomorrow. I've always wanted a Niner green bike so it'll go off to the powder coater as soon as it gets here.

    The "TEAM" frames will begin shipping next week...

    They are incredible... very stiff, very light, super "snappy" but still has the stability/agility of the standard frames.

    Mine is 23 lbs. With a Raceface cockpit, Studded D4's, X1/X0, Avid Mech brakes, and NextSl cranks -- loving every mile!!!

    DAMN!! Ordered my purple 197/150 frame and fork on Monday, saw no need to pay the additional 40 bucks for overnight shipping and it's here today!

    I can't get it to the powdercoater fast enough.

    Another reason to like 907. I ordered two of the rear spaced front hubs for my son's bike and a spacer that they sell that I assumed would convert my 907 hub to a 150. They called me today and asked if I was going to try and use the spacer on the hubs I bought and I said no, but the same one I have on an older bike.
    They corrected me and said the old 135 hubs are not convertible so I shouldn't buy that.
    Very nice of them. I think everyone else would have just sent it and let me figure it out.

    I like the purple and the price and would ride it as is. I'm sure the frame will look killer no matter what you do. Have fun with the project.

    Cuatro Zeros

    Four of us that have been riding together for years broke out our fatbikes and rode some bomber single track yesterday just north of Anchorage. We were shocked to see dirt! That's right, no snow. There was the isolated ribbon of glare ice on portions of single track, but dirt and dust were the order of the day. The single tracks were probably in the best shape for this network that we've ever seen.

    We all ride the same model 907's; Ti frames that Chain Reaction brought in around the Sept, 2009 timeframe. These were their first offering that featured a symmetrical rear triangle, constructed as an option to their 135mm offset rear triangle aluminum frames. Those were still very much the developmental years for fatbike evolution, as this version was built with 160mm rear dropout spacing, standards really hadn't landed yet. I had an offset rear triangle WildFire and saw this as a huge upgrade. Four of us approached Chain Reaction to see if we could get a volume discount if we all plunked down, and they agreed to pass along a deal as they wanted to get some out on the trails for exposure. We've been happily riding these bikes hard ever since.

    We've seen the progression to wider rear ends, tapered head tubes and suspension fork capability, 1x drivetrains and carbon frames, but none of us are willing to give these frames up. Sure there are temptations, but despite some of the obsolete specs these have they still provide a reliable and sporty ride. Stiff at the bottom bracket with that oversized downtube, 3/4" seat stays and 7/8" chain stays. Stable handling, plus the bonus of 29+ convertibility.

    After our ride was completed, we lamented over a few beers at how well these "Edsels" still perform. We've got tons of miles on these, in Alaska you probably put more miles on a fatbike than any other type of bike, yet we've experienced not a single frame issue. Chain Reaction brought in what we consider a timeless rigid frame that's just about perfect. I've even slid a 170mm rear wheel in mine with no problems, those stays can flex outward 5mm on each side without a hiccup. Truly some long term 907 love. Here's SuperBlinky, EndUser, HoppyTrales, and yours truly still completely satisfied.

    Yes. You just have to change out the bottom half of the head set and race to an EC 44/40.
    Also had to buy a new front wheel, 15mm thru axle hub.

    I think some of the 2012 had a 44mm head tube and others had a head tube that would only accept 1-1/8" forks. Hopefully yours has the 44mm head tube.

    So...without going nuts with the Google fu, does anyone know if the race face 170mm spaced cranks fit on the 197 whiteout aluminum frames??
    I just cracked my other frame, and immediately ordered one of the purple frames they are blowing out. But now I may have to get weird on some new cranks too....

    Yes, but as a 1x, with the ring on the outermost part of the crank, there's about 5mm clearance between the crank and the chainsaws on each side. Not sure it the chain line works with raceface cinch cranks.

    Yeah, I have a set of 170 spaced cinch cranks on my bike now, which is a 197, with the sprocket flipped outwards. I guess I'll have to roll the dice on this one.

    That has been documented to work and they sell bikes with that setup. I run a 170 Turbine cinch setup on mine. I can't remember if I bought additional 2.5x30mm crank spacers(not BB) or they came with the crank, but I know I run one on the drive side to get my chain line exactly how I want it. Having a couple of 1mm and 2.5mm would be a good idea to have around just in case, but not necessary.

Having a couple of 1mm and 2.5mm would be a good idea to have around just in case, but not necessary.
    Mine had the older version Race Face Turbines on it, with a single spacer on the non drive side of the BB, and 1 2.5mm & 1 1mm spacer on the drive side, but zero spindle spacers.

    My frame is back from powder coat. It looks fantastic. I'll post pics on Tuesday. I can only do it from work.
    I got the adapters for the rear hub, post style brake mounts and a new Salsa 150mm front hub. All I have to do is find time to unlace the 135 out of the front wheel and lace in the 150. I think it's going to rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Perfect time to make the swap.

    Mines new to me this year. Loving it more each time I ride. I started the season with the mindset of passing time until I could ride my trail bike again now I don't want winter to ever end!

    Picture doesn't do the color justice. It looks great.

    I tried to get custom decals made up yesterday but the decal guy doesn't work Mondays. All I got left is re lace the front wheel onto the Salsa hub.

    It's Granny Smith Apple from Prismatic Powders. Looks exactly like Ventana's Grinch Green.

    Nice! I've got Prismatic Illusion Sour Apple planned for my Krampus, thought the name was appropriate for the bike. Also have Prismatic illusion Malbec for my Karate Monkey.

    Illusion Sour Apple was one of the front runners. It was a 45 dollar difference because they had the Granny Smith in stock. I'm happy with it.

    I might have bought the last of the Sour Apple then! Could have asked me, 1lb should do 3/4 bikes! I would have cut you a good "fellow 9:ZERO:7 chap" discount.

    I meant the local powder coater had it in stock. I'm sure Prismatic has tons of the stuff.

    I've been toying with the idea of sending my frame to Spectrum and having it done in that color and doing the 9:Zero:7 done with a couple shades darker so it is muted and get rid of the awful white band...

    9:zero:7 Love

    This was the 3rd Whiteout out the door in 2013. Just picked it up from the shop tonight and put about 10 miles on it on some fun, twisty AK singletrack. New additions are the Bluto, GX 1 drivetrain, Flow/Dunderbeist tires, and Guide RSC brakes. 28 lbs as it sits. The bike is a monster...

    Tricked out head badge will come later on. I was home sick today so I made it to the vinyl guy. Snowflake is on and he made 9 ZERO 7 stickers for me from an image he took off the internet. I'll post a pic tomorrow.

    I'm in the market for a new fat bike and came across the deal FATBIKES.com is offering on the 2015 Whiteout aluminum build. My first question is, how's the build look to you guys? I'll probably upgrade to the mulefut rims. My second question would it be a good option for a all season bike? I'm not familial with 9 zero 7 bikes and appreciate your feedback.

    I ride my 9:Zero:7 year round. It's good fun going out Jeepin on 2 wheels. I'm using a pair of RD's with Hopes in the middle. Mulefut is a good choice...

    Great folks at Fatbike.com and the deals they are currently offering are real fair pricing with decent builds. I almost bought another one to go with my 2013 as it only fits 4.00" tires but they are out of small frames. Personally I the feel 1399.00 alum Whiteout would be a sweet ride and a good investment. I have no experience with their own rims, my bike has RD's and I run downhill mountain bike tubes. If you want to run tubeless the Mulefut would be worth the extra $200.00

    It is not. It's the fork that came with my dengfu fm190.
    I rode the fm190 with zero ****s given. I thrashed the thing. This fork is burly and has stood up to the task so far. It is NOT ultralight. It's pretty heavy duty. I tip the scales at sometimes upward of 195 and I'm not gentle anyways. I'm gonna continue thrashing it.

    I'm kickin' myself a little for not doing them in green but I think once the bike is all together it'll look fine. Every single part going on it is black.
    I was pretty sick yesterday, so I didn't do the front wheel.
    I'll get to it tonight.

    Looks good! can your vinyl guy do laminated decals, or does he just do single color?

    Could you pass along the contact information for your vinyl guy? I'm also having my bike powder coated and I'd like to replace the logos.

    Thanks!
