    Tiboy, have you removed the studs from those dillingers or is my eyesight playing tricks on me? Is that what is meant by "9:ZERO:7 45NRTH Edition"?

    Your eyes are not playing tricks, Fatbikes.com includes exclusive non- studded Dillingers on their builds. My bike is one of 3 build levels offerer named the McGrath, very well thought out and cheaper than you could buy the parts on your own. Go to their web site for more info.

    Ok. Then aren't those "9:ZERO:7 45NRTH Edition Dillingers" basically Escalators? Or do they differ somehow from Escalators? TPI, Duro, weight, price, what the name of the game?

    I'm interested because I'm looking to replace my 27TPI Hüsker Dus on my 9zero7 with something lighter.

    No, the non-studded version is120 TPI, the identical tire to the studded version, the Escalators are 180 TPI.

    here are a few more right after the build, before the Atlas cranks and Paul chain keeper, and before the winter.

    Sorry, I'm not on here much and also always forget the camera while riding.

    Bike specs with pics

    Update: I have been riding this bike for the past 8 months and I love it! It's held up pretty well so far. Some of the things I had to do are pretty minor. Brake pad started rubbing on the rotors and had to be centered. Only problem I had was the rigid fork. The headset cap kept loosening after two or three rides. If this keeps up, will have to use Logitech on the threads. The stem Ti bolts are a pain in the ass as they keep loosening too. I like my current setup as the 29er feels like a road bike off road.

    Bike specs with pics

    All right, I can now officially post in the Fatbike Forum without being a poser. I just finished my build last night over a couple choice beers with my buddy
    Bike specs with pics-imageuploadedbytapatalk1361117426.001751.jpg
    -2013 XL Mukluk frame from the good guys at Cycle Haven
    -Holy Rolling Daryl's mated to Hope Fatsno's "tubeless" - Chad at Red Barn Cycles in Montana is the Man!!!
    -27tpi HuDu's, I couldn't find 120's at the time
    -Race Face Turbine cranks, 34t ring.
    -1x10 shimano XT Drivetrain
    -Easton Havoc carbon seatpost, Thompson stem 90mm
    -Race Face atlas bars 725mm "purple"

    At the moment the bike is sitting at 35lbs, including the pedals, seat bag and heavy 27tpi tires, I think I could scratch the 30lb mark fairly easily.
    I'm stoked to go do a little trail riding with it today.

    Lmariachi - Nice build, I have the same frame in Large and am planning a very similar build. I'm not really concerned about the weight of mine, but just out of curiosity, have you weighted it?

    Thanks.
    Didn't put it on a scale but my guess (by adding separate components in xls sheet) is ~14.5 kg (32 lbs).

    Giant Foamy grips
    Specialized Stem
    Specialized Romin Comp Gel saddle
    Solid Bikes Headset
    Shimano XT Trail Pedals

    Sram X9 shifter
    Sram X9 Type 2 Rear Derailer

    Shimano XT 11-36 10 Speed Cassette
    Shimano XT 10 Speed chain

    Surly O.D. Crank 170mm- when available
    Blackspire 32 tooth chainring

    A few notes: i have specialized 2.3-3.0 tubes in right now, one presta, one schrader. i drilled the rims for schrader, and have some Schwalbe schrader valve stems for a tubeless setup. Using the Surly rim strip with Gorilla tape, once around each side, the once in the middle to fill the wee gap. the truvativ crank with 100mm isis b/b is too close to the frame for me. i will put on an O.D crank as soon as i can get one. and a few pictures are before i installed my headset and cut the steertube.

    No problem with BB7 brakes, I like hydraulic discs and have always had Shimano as I love the feel and modulation they have.
    The XTR are a lightweight, powerful brake

    Good job! My PASSE-PARTOUT project

    Hi !

    New bike , New ride !

    i've presented my bike here few weeks ago but i forgot to describe the build, so :

    First, my mission was to build by myself an adventure bike, a fatbike like i discovered 2 or 3 years ago. A strong bike with loading capacity. So, i choosed a 36 holes wheels built and a Jeep M201 design !

    The picture :

    Bike specs with pics-moutons.jpg

    The build :

    Frame steel 4130,CrMo double-butted 9/6/9 TIG welded / Powder coating (2 layers : for rust and finition)
    Tires INNOVA SPIDER
    Inner tubes SURLY PRESTA
    Rim tape Tape
    Rims DHL80 36h
    Spokes MACH1
    Front hub PAUL COMP WHUB 135
    QR CRANK BROTHERS
    Brakes AVID JUICY 3
    Fork SALSA Enabler modified (for WHUB)
    Headset FSA Orbit XL II
    Stem TRUVATIV TEAM 100 (repainted)
    Bar TRUVATIV HUSSEFELT Hi Rise 680 (repainted too)
    Grips PRO GRIP BLACK and BONTRAGER after a little accident !
    Saddle IDEALE 92 (vintage) remplaced by SELLE ITALIA (old saddle suffer with sport riding)
    Saddle post TRUVATIV STYLO T20 27.2/400
    Saddle clamp BBB
    Rear hub MSC DH 165
    Rear axle MSC DH
    Crankset FSA ALPHADRIVE ISIS 22 32 44
    Pedals No name, bear feet design
    Botton bracket FSA PLATINUM DH ISIS 100mm
    Chain SHIMANO HG 93 9V 114m
    Rear cog SHIMANO HG 50 9V 11/34
    Front derailleur SHIMANO SLX E-type FD-660-E
    Rear derailleur SHIMANO SLX RD-662-GS
    Cables BBB
    Shifters SHIMANO RAPID FIRE Plus DEORE

    In the future, i'll change the crankset for a 2x9 or 10 because of the contact with rocks (44 teeths is not necessary after ride test) . The brakes are only "presents" and need to be stronger (i put now a 180mm in front instead of 160mm)

    Now, i'm very happy with my bike and my first use change a little bit........i ride it more than a sport bike than a trekking bike !

    I love how it rides with the lefty! I actually use it for training rides on single track now.

    When trail damage becomes an issue on some trails and ONLY fat bikes will be allowed on these trails...then I believe the number of Fat bikes will explode because a big time manufacturer (like Specialized or Trek) will start selling XC/Enduro/All Mountian Fat bikes with front suspension (and maybe full suspension as well)...then everyone will see what they have been missing.

    SS Pug

    Bike specs with pics-photo.jpg

    2013 Red Pug frame (warranty frame)

    Stock 2010 Pug wheels (LM rims, Surly SS hub front and Deore rear) - so far...
    Nate UL in front, 120 TPI Larry in the back - both with tubes, so far
    Raceface ISIS cranks 175mm with 30-20T rings plus bash (the second chainring is on there for quick swaps to 2x9 as needed)
    18T surly cog and surly tuggnut, shimano skewers
    BB7s on 160mm rotors (will need to go 180 in the front)
    Avid SD7 levers...best $20 I ever spent
    Ragley Carnegie bars with Oury grips
    Heavy ass seatpost with the WeeHoo bike trailer adapter on it
    WTB saddle
    Wellgo B030 pedals with Burro straps (I've been pounding this set of pedals on several bikes for 2 years now. Very impressed, so far)

    This spicy pig of a bike is a great deal of fun as a singlespeed. Nate in front has never let me down, and the Larry in back is a compromise to allow for an easier commute to the trail. Next item on the agenda is redoing the wheelset: drill the rims and replace the hubs with deore XT 785 hubs f/r. That should drop some grams and add some points of engagement. I also plan to set up a IGH wheelset for the beach.

    I don't have a ton of time on it yet but so far I really like it. It's about 75g lighter than the cut down 2 bend it replaced but what I really wanted and like is the extra sweep and the carbon to help soften the bumps. It is also allowing me to get rid of 5 or 10mm on my stack, haven't decided for sure yet. Amazon has it for a song right now.

    I am shocked that it weighs in at 34lbs. I would have guessed a fair bit less.

    That seems more like it. With your parts spec 34lbs seemed a little high to me. That is a beautiful bike and I love your part list. Enjoy.

    really appreciate it! Thanks guys!

    yeah I was scratching my head at 34 but thats what the scale said so I just took it for granted haha

    I'm thinking about switching to marge lites to keep weight down when I go to a lefty. This bike is a all season bike but the trails I'm riding here in Tokyo don't get heavy snow at all and if there is snow it turns to ice real fast

    trying to keep weight down is key for me as I have to hike a bike some portions of trail

    Greetings from the UK. I doubt you will have seen one of these. Its a HiBike Relic Monster. I got it yesterday and am still staring at it

    I've never seen a Fat Bike in the UK, and am a confirmed roadie but from the first time I saw a Fat Bike I wanted one.

    This one, has a triple front chain ring, which I have never seen on any other one, meaning I have 27 gears.

    Its a hoot to ride, but every trip so far had taken ages as everyone I meet stops me to ask what it is !!

    We don't get much snow in Sussex but as we are only 20 miles from the coast I will be taking it down there regularly in the winter.

    I'm a very happy boy

    HiBike have evolved from a precision engineering company in Taiwan. The frames were sourced from there by a UK bike dealer (bikeseven.co.uk) who added the finishing kit under their brand name Relic.

    Mine is a 17" frame, has Shimano Deore transmission and 26x4.0 tyres, I might replace them with floater tyres when the mud arrives.

    it weighs 37lbs which is a bit heavy from looking at those above but I don't care....it'll make me fitter

    I'm going to fit a small triangular frame bag to hold the batteries from my two Cree T6 LEDs, monster lights for a monster bike !!

    It's a great colour, a pearlescent brown.

    I love it !

    My Muru Finke

    Hey guys,

    Not that long ago I decided that I was going the fat bike route. In a state that is defined by sand, pea gravel and bulldust, a fatbike seemed only logical.

    I completed the build a few weeks ago and yesterday I completed a very slow Cape to Cape MTB race on it. After ~500km on it I am blown away by how much fun it is to ride . It does need suspension forks though!

    Frame: Muru Ti Finke in medium
    Forks: Muru Swale Ti
    Front wheel: Hope FatSno laced to a Surly Clown Shoe
    Rear wheel: Rohloff laced to a Surly Clown Shoe
    Bottom Bracket & Cranks: The Hive with Surly Stainless chain ring (36:17 gearing)
    Seatpost, bars and stem: Ritchey
    Brakes: Hope Mono M4 EVO
    Pedals: Crank Bros Mallet

    Sub 30 Moonlander

    People keep asking me how I got a sub 30 lb Moonlander, so here are the specs. I could have gotten a lot lighter with skinny bars and other junk, but I try to make as many of my upgrades American made as possible. Most of the old bits went to my Big Dummy.

    I think I could eventually get it to the low 28s while maintaining 100mm rims, but that would require Next cranks, new brakes, and drilling out the rims some.

    Frame: 2012 Surly Moonlander 18"
    Fork: Carver
    Headset: Chris King (USA)
    Stem: Thomson x4 (USA)
    Handlebar: Enve Sweep (I thought it was American made but it's not)
    Grips: ESI Extra Chunky (USA)
    Shifter: Stock Microshift Thumbie
    Derailleur: 9 speed XT
    Brake Levers: Stock Avid SD-7
    Brake Calipers: BB7
    Disc: Ashima Ai2 160
    Rims: Surly Clown Shoe
    Spokes/Nipples: DT Swiss Revolution, black brass nipples
    Hubs: Paul WHUB front (USA), Hope rear
    Rim tape: Camo tarp cut into strips and taped down by 3.77 inch duct tape
    Tires: BFL folding
    Tubes: Q-Tubes SL
    Crankset: Surly MWOD (kinda) with surly spider and Wolftooth 32T chainring (USA)
    Bottom bracket: Chris King with the fat sleeve thing (USA)
    Pedals: Cheapo Shimanos
    Chain: KMC something
    Cassette: XT
    Seat clamp: Thomson (USA)
    Seatpost: Thomson Masterpiece (USA)
    Saddle: Specialized Avatar Team
    Bottle Cage: Some cheap Blackburn thing

    And here's a pic of the rim strip. The duct tape's a great fit and the tubes barely bulge through the cutouts. That should help since I'm stretching smaller tubes into the largest rim/tire combos available.

    moonlander

    Bike specs with pics-moonie-snow-side.jpgBike specs with pics-moonie-front-end.jpg

    came with Deore, BFL's, plain old boring clown shoes.
    i added green duck tape strips, magnesium platforms, cannondale grips.
    the Bfl's were a little worn down and they stink in anything slippery so next step is Bud/Lou's. plan on eventually replacing deore as it works now but i am always readjusting the shifters and shifting under load is bad.
    add flourescent cables and it's a keeper!

    No "name-dropping" parts list here- just "fat-bike" for a "poor country boy"... :)

    Got this one at the $225 price. Enough for me to see if this format of bike is good enough for an "all-arounder" for my riding, etc.

    My 2010 Flash Carbon with some modifications-
