    Sweet bike. I will be entering the fat bike world this fall and I'm partial to 9zero7s. How far east in Canada are you? I'm in NL.

    Bike on the scales was better than i had expected. In comparison to a stock necromancer w undrilled rolling darryls and 27tpi nates its an absolute world of difference.
    one significant unexpected upgrade was how much better XT hydros on 8' ice tech rotors are compared to BB7's!!

    Hmmm...

    I thought those forks would come with ding guards for the lowers. I'd certainly be making some!

    Enjoy!

    I am thinking of this upgrade too..... The BB7's are ok for on the flat but once you start going downhill in a hurry you have to give them a death grip to stop! :-)

    How fat is the bike now without the carbon forks?? 31lbs??

    I don't have a hard-on for bb7's, but I have XTR on my mtb (granted, not with Ice Tech Rotors) and BB7 on my 9ZERO and I really couldn't say the BB7's posses any less power then the XTR. Maybe try some EBC gold pads and make sure to bed them in correctly?

    Recently changed the pads to kevlar one's and replaced the front rotor from 160mm to 180mm. Initially the breaking was great but now I am back to square one and cant get the back wheel off the ground without trying really hard.

    I wont be rushing out to buy new brakes but once these pads go I might treat myself!
