    al 9:zero:7 and 100 rims

    I've heard mixed information on the combination of the aluminum 9:zero7 frame, 100mm rims, and fat tires. From the posts on here, I get the impression that these are not compatible, but fatbikes.com says "Accepts the FlatTop 100mm rims and 26x4.0 tires."

    Have the frames gone through any modifications over its history that wouldn't have allowed them to initially fit or have a really tight fit and now that's resolved?

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. I am expecting the frame this week and am very excited to start building it up, but I want to make sure that I purchase rims that are compatible.

    Thank you.

    Chris

    They will fit. Even with 9 casette, seen that. But there are variables, for example, the amount of offset when building wheels.
    One car less.

    I have 907 frame, 100mm rims 4" (3.8 and 3.8) tires and a 9 speed casette. No problem at all.
