    9 Zero 7 with Rabbit Hole and Knard?

    I'm getting close to pulling the trigger on a Krampus, but keep looking at the idea of getting a fat bike and putting Rabbit Holes on it for the summer months. Pug is the most obvious option, I think, especially as far as cost effectiveness. It sounds like the 2013 Muks will work, too.

    Has anybody successfully mounted rabbit holes on a 9 Zero 7 with 170 spacing?

    I rode a Fatback in Anchorage last month with RH/Knards.

    I'm under the impression that the new super fat 907's coming out this summer will be able to take them. That's my plan.
    I like turtles

    I had the same thoughts. I ended up getting a Krampus - fun bike!

    Provided you have the right hubs (170mm rear, 135mm up front), you should be able to put RH (or any 29'r) wheels on a 907, Muk, Fatback.
    You should ping Mikesee if you need those wheels... he builds some beautiful stuff.

    Yesterday we tested whether the 9 Zero 7 with offset rear end would fit Knard/Rabbit Hole wheel. A couple of pics (with sliding dropouts all the way back):





    EDIT oops, I did not realise that this thread already contained the same information: Fatbike on a Diet

    I heard back from the 9 Zero 7 guys and they confirmed that the Rabbit Hole and Knard combo will fit on a 9 Zero 7 with 170 spacing. The news unfortunately came too late for me to take advantage of the information, but good info for these forums nonetheless.

    I was curious and bored, so I tried putting my 29" Knard on Rabbit Hole rim rear wheel on my wife's XS 170mm-rear 907, and there is plenty of clearance to the stays and bridge. The closest point I could measure between the tire and frame is ~14.5mm

    Is that a regular geared 170 or the single speed with sliding dropouts?

    Crap. I have the small 135, non sliding dropout, great riding, super fun, able to leap small buildings in a single bound, fat 907 that won't take a 100 with lou, bud, or rabbits.....
    Boy, if the rain would stop and the trails dry out, I might not go crazy.
