    Borealis Carbon Fatbike

    Pretty sweet. I might have to sell my everything to get one of those. Complete bike price isn't bad compared to frame.

    Looks like a game changer! Carbon and 190mm spacing! Will fit 4.8 tires no problem! Can't wait to see one in person.

    Saw and (briefly) rode one last week. Hardtails aren't my cup o' tea but this'n looked and felt very well thought out.

    The best/most refined looking carbon offering so far, in my opinion.

    Everytime someone say's game changer it seems to be mean the complete opposite......

    Example:
    Anchor says its new milk bottle technology will be a "game changer" for the fresh milk market.
    "Triple layer and light proof? The stuff lives in a fridge most of the time ! what a waste of $"

    Yet another "industry standard". We sure did blow past 170 as a "standard" quickly. How about 197 to accommodate 190 plus thru-axle?

    I like it... very much !

    $2249 for frame and forks isn't that bad. Pivot and Niner want $2200 for their hardtail frames without a fork and that's with China offering non brand name hardtails for $350.

    Priced right around the Carbon Beargrease X9 build. It will be interesting to see how the Yampa & Salsa compare. Salsa better get with it, they aren't telling anybody anything at this point and that includes their dealers.
    There are three kinds of people: those of us that are good at math and those that are not.

    I have all the parts needed except frame and crankset for a crazy light Fat for my winter treks. I aiming for under 23lbs.

    I had my eye on the Project Murphy. They were suppose to come out in Februaury. No word since.

    This Borealis looks great. Weighs in perfect. But 190mm rear. I won`t be doing it unless they can size down rear as option.

    I think this looks like a great platform. I have had a carbon beargrease in the back of my mind here lately but this could be another option. I do like options, especially having a qr15 option on the front.

    If you want to fit the biggest tires/rims out there and have a full drive train a 190mm rear hub (or virtual 190mm hub like the Moonlander) is the way to do it. My guess is 190mm will be the adopted standard going forth.

    Actually... it says "Frameset: $1799" when you click on the Yampa Frame tab. Not sure if there is a web error or what the deal is. http://www.borealisbikes.com/bikes/frame/

    That weight is surely an error?

    That'll be the version with 29er rims and tyres then?

    I guess that means the fork is pretty pricey at $450 or maybe more separately.

    What will the hubs cost?

    I assume the 15mmQR option is 135mm. that may help make suspension forks more accessible at some point, especially if it has front rotor spacing.
