    Rep is anonymous, so I can't see what you see; i.e. I don't know what you're talking about, but clearly some here are enamored of their ability to hand out negative rep. I gave you +rep, but it doesn't count for anything as I have no "rep power" and some would apparently like to keep it that way. Personally, I only hand out +rep.

    Does the 907 mold fit Bud and Lou on clownshoes?

    I chatted with the factory rep just now. He said the frames are currently produced and being tested. Once they are fully tested they will appear on the website for sale.

    He anticipates that will be in 2-3 months.

    He declined to answer my 170mm/190mm question, and also said they cannot quote prices yet.

    Hope you were kidding, as that was a sincere question on my part, not trolling. My biggest "unknown" regarding fatbikes, is the tradeoff between 170/190 -- I'm new to fatbiking and genuinely trying to learn, hence my questions, even if they seem stupid.

    I simply asked him if they are offering the frame in 170mm or 190mm. He was unable to answer until their prototyping is done.

    I am just happy there will be another nice used steel or aluminum frame available to me soon as people flock to the carbon!!

    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    It seems strange that they can't answer the 170/190 question? I mean its one or the other, you can't easily swap between the two with a carbon mold. To me those frames in the pictures look to be 190.

    Anyway, I'm looking forward to the launch date and seeing what pricing looks like.

    That's how I justified spending the extra to go Ti. My Grandma Estelle always told me she was "too cheap to buy twice."

    The 907 was designed around 100mm rims and 26x5" tires

    Hopefully this frame can take 29er+. It would be a really nice added feature and would make an terrific lightweight 29er+.

    Here's a picture of the Borealis Yampa with two bikes shown, one fat and one 29er+.

    170 = narrower Q-factor, but 5" tires on 100 mm rims are difficult to fit without skewing chainline. (170 mm rear hubs are the symmetric version of 17.5 mm offset rear.)
    190 = wider Q-factor, but will readily accept 5" tires on 100 mm rims. (These are the symmetric version of 28 mm offset.)

    Offset (or a wider hub) means the cassette is moved to the right so the chain gets straight to the chainring without rubbing on the tire.

    As per the 3 other threads on this topic.... Race Face Turbine 170 and other 1x integrated ring cranks can be used and keep the same q factor and a reasonable chainline while running clownshoes 100 mm rims and bud and lou.
