    Wow, that's a deal, I'm assuming another 4 hundred or so for the right hubs and axles? thanks for the quick response, I got my eye on the borealis deal that was posted and weighing my options.

    joe, $529 is what i payed too. there is also shipping charge from china and paypall fee, so total i payed $649 i believe. axles are included as i was told. fatsno hubs can be had for $300 if you get a deal. otherwise $400 seems about right.

    It will be interesting to see if the ebay axles work on all these frames. Axles are different lengths depending on dropout thickness. As long as an alxe is sufficiently long and is threaded far enough down the axle, it would work with most frames.

    However a frame with unusually thin or dropouts might not work with an axle that has a short threaded area. Similarly, a frame with exceptionally thick dropouts might not work with a short axle. Note, this is referring to the thickness of the frame dropout, not the spacing between the dropouts.

    Here is the response I got from Justin on the axles

    "Yes we offer the thru axles to match the carbon fat bike frames."

    Has anybody ordered the carbon rims with the frame or has everybody gone the light bicycle route for the rims? I would order the FB01 to get the larger 20" frame but i wish they had a 21". I'm 6-2 and am afraid the 20 may be a bit small.

    The frame, fork and set of rims is 1309 shipped. its a deal for sure, its like getting a free set of carbon rims vs the Borealis deal. That is as long as the quality is there.

    I saw that, and if you look at his answer it is not a direct answer, he says they "offer" them and then quoted me the total price. I sent another email. thanks.

    I ordered a headset with my frame. Any tapered headset (For Carbon frame) should work.

    The FB02 frame shipped came to $650. I ordered a 12x170 and corresponding front axle from ebay seller (another $44) and Sarma Hubs--12x170, 15x135--$300.

    I will likely go with Nextie rims ($650), but I have also thought about marge light rims ($320)--plus all the other stuff.

    The Marge lights weigh about the same as the Nextie--of course 65mm vs 90 mm, but my wife rides groomed trails only with 4" Dillingers (streets get a bit icy).
    I have not decided how much I will pilfer from my wife's pugsley to move over to her new build vs. selling the puglsey and using the funds to offset the build.

    dfiler, I might have missed it, but how does it ride? I bought my motobecane after chatting with you and seems I am following you once again. Have a ltk008 frame coming in 2 weeks.

    Have you guys measured the rear spacing on the various frames? 190mm or 197mm on these?

    Most running Novatec rear hubs?

    Asked Justin about the axles again

    "Yes we offer the thru axles to match the carbon fat bike frames."

    Still not a direct answer, it may be a language thing, I don't know.

    I just bit the bullet on the Borealis Yampa Frame, Fork, and Hubs. I figure it is at a $300 premium to go that route over the FB01. But I liked the fact that it has the right hubs and axles with it plus it uses the 100mm bottom bracket so I can use the Race Face crank I already have. Now I have to decide which carbon rims to buy? Last things I need are cassette, rear derailleur, chain, and shifters. Any advice would be appreciated.
    Thanks.

    i think the email i got from Justin today confirms they can supply axles. Based on email from Sarah from couple days ago, stating that my frame is coming with axles, i am assuming that the frames from now on come with axles. i dont think the axles and hubs are problem anymore, but it is coming from somebody who has not received the frame yet. waiting on report from Dave and others who have the frame already .

    190mm, now thinking i will go with sarma hubs instead of fatsnos, as they come in 12x190 option. 120 POA sounds good too.

    Thanks.

    How do you figure only a $300 premium? $545 for frame/fork/axles. (Fb02 quote I got from speedercycling). And $370 for borealis fh1 hubset. That's $915. I thought the yampa deal was $1499. That's $584 or 64% premium over the open mould frame.

    I didn't break out the calculator but lets see. My total with the for the FB01 frame, fork, and two carbon rims was $1362. this is without hubs and maybe with axles. My total for the Borealis with hubs and axles but no carbon rims was $ 1549. The FB01 would need hubs at around $400 so that would be $ 1762. The Borealis will need rims so say $600 so that would be $ 2149. So I guess its closer to 400 than 300.

    The real decision maker was the size of the frame, I was afraid that the 20" FB01 would be too small. And I wanted the 100mm bottom bracket. The xl borealis should be perfect. I hope at least.

    Interesting. The quote I got for fb02/fork/axles/2 carbon nextie style rims from speeder before shipping was $1135. That's $230 less than what you were quoted.

    Yes but was that with the shipping and paypal fees?

    Edit, I just saw that was without the shipping. Plus they add paypal fee.

    my overall for f-fb02+fork+axles (assuming)+shipping+paypal, nexite rims+ shipping+paypal: $1,294, with sarma hubs $349, or fatsnos $306, so total of $1,600 (with fatsnos)
    vs
    yampa deal $1,549+nextie rims $645 for total of $2,149.
    still think that yampa is very decent deal.
