    Just joined Club Echo™ today:



    This bike rocks!!! Hoping to take it on a proper technical ride Wednesday so as to get a bearing on it’s strengths and weaknesses (as a trailbike that will see 90% hardcore roots/rock gardens/loose/steep/off-camber/dirt/mud/etc.) as compared to my trusty 2012 9:zero:7.

    Thanks for all the compliments! The guys at Borealis were trying to discourage me from getting blue on blue, but I insisted that fatbikes are like clown bikes– obnoxious, standing out in the crowd; why not make a colourful statement!!! Just waiting to break even with the sale of my other bikes (hopefully soon) such that I can order a not-so-subtle set of blue Nextie 90mm fatbike carbon rims to make it even more obnoxious!

    ^ Nice

    My stock large X01 yampa with knards and Velocity Dually rims running tubless came in a 23 pounds

    With a dropper post and a Bluto it came in at 26.1 pounds, although I think wider end caps are coming soon for the Borialis hubs, I built my
    29+ wheel set with 135 hope hubs, using end caps and a offset brake adapter I can easily switch between the carbon fork and the Bluto.
    I went with an 80mm Bluto that which once sagged the AtoC is pretty much identical to the carbon fork.





    The Bluto and the 29+ setup really takes this bike to another level, a normal hardtail which I have not ridden since the mid 90's because
    of back issues would have crushed me on this ride last weekend. But between the front suspension, high volume tires and the flexible chain stays,
    I had no problem riding 30 miles of rocky terrain and now it's hard to choose between this setup and my 160mm travel bike




    End Caps I used
    Hauck-Bicycles Hub Spacers – Converts 135 to 150mm includes offset disc brake mount

    Borealis Picture and Specs Thread-image.jpgBorealis Picture and Specs Thread-image.jpgHere's my xo/x9. Just about to build a 29+ wheel set, and throw on a Bluto. Can anyone verify where the serial number is located on the frame?

    Inside the head tube--may need a mirror on a handle to read it--plus a little light.

    LOL! I failed to note the specs of my Borealis Echo… however, it’s a stock X0/X9 build with the exception of the blue FR80 Turnagain rims, Bud and Lou 4.8 tires, a 180mm front rotor (just installed yesterday), and the remote lockout Bluto… once the shop gets the right parts in, that is. So far I think that the XX1 components and the Carbondale rims would have been worth the extra money, but then had I gone that route I am sure my wife would be filing for divorce right now.

    Like orind mentioned, it is in the headtube on the 2013 frames. Sometimes it can be a bit tough to read so a flashlight and a quick wipe with water or saliva usually helps.

    The 2014 frames have the serial on the bottom of the BB shell and are much easier to read.

    You will love your 29+ set up! I keep my Yampa set up 29+ with Duallys about 90% of the time. It really makes this a great year round bike capable of nearly anything.

    Nice build and video!

    At Borealis we are not planning on offering wider end caps but rather chose to go with a true 150mm specific front hub since it makes for a much nicer, nearly dishless, wheel build. We do have 150mm hubs available separately or as built wheels if you are looking to upgrade to a Bluto though.

    Great pictures in this thread, keep em coming!

    But a third party is working on an offering, rather spend a few bucks on endcaps than buy a whole new wheelset,
    this way I can swap the same wheelset between my carbon fork and the Bluto. No Dishing is required with an offset
    brake mount, this is what I'm doing with my 29+ wheelset and it works perfect.

    Talking to the Borealis guys on the phone, he said the 170 works on the Echo.
