    Im confused now, but I know I like the bike

    would these rims fit into like a 907 frame then, build them up offset rear, standard front, and run these tyres ?

    Can you already get 29 er tyres like semi slick(edit found nig apples 2.35 in 29er ?), cos a set of rabbit rims with slicks would make a great fast road set up on my 907, and be quite light too I think

    the paint looks great, this paint and the moonies is the nuts, makes the pugs look pretty basic

    Actually, I think I could like that kind of tires on a rigid 26er bike. They'd quite likely fit my fork but there aren't many 26er frames with that much clearance.

    The rabbit hole on the Surly blog has cutouts... get it, rabbit hole?

    Are you missunderstanding the reason behind Surly posting this breaking news on this
    forum? True, at first thought it would seem that the 29er forum would be a better place.
    So why here?

    Could it not be said that over not only the 29er forum, but out of all, we rate #1 in the
    mind of Surly? It is an honor rendered!

    It's the type of 29er I always wanted.

    And a 3" tyre on a 700c rim is fat

    I wonder if it will fit in my TD-1? (I'm 14,000km away from it, so I can't measure)

    Surly, you are going to sell boatloads of these things, and even more rims and tires for custom builds... please make sure you order enough from your suppliers so we are not waiting till 2014! Thank you! Salsa what do you have up your sleeve? A Ti version would be awesome!

    Yeah and selling the idea to the fat crowd will be much easier than selling it to the skinny 29er crowd. The skinnys won't get it.

    I can't get my riding buddy to even try wider rims, let alone wider tires. Despite the fact that he bends rims and rolls tires all the time and has to run extra high pressure to compensate. Some people are thick. Some are fat

    I just checked over there and there is a new thread and some positive posting going on. Converts? I guess it's not like a 3" tire is actually fat. Just fatter.
    No it never stops hurting, but if you keep at it you can go faster.

    Quite like the look of the krampus, will be ideal for general offroading and xc work wonder if they are releasing complete builds?

    My guess is yes. All of the "hints" to date reference a "bike", and most of Surly's other offerings come that way. Only the Trucker Deluxe and 1x1 are sold as frame only.

    I'd love to try one of these, but I'm not optimistic that it solves anything for me. For one, I really love almost everything about my current fatbike. The last remaining issue is the weight, which I doubt will be fixed by this bike. Also, I expect that the "suspension effect" will not come close to what a fatbike delivers. Don't know what the tire pressures will be - high teens/low 20s? And to be perfectly shallow about it, it just doesn't have that fatbike look. Need more info. And a test ride!

    Thank You.

    I'm interested for sure - was holding out for On One's fatbike to be my first full fatty, but now I am torn!

    Anyone catch wind or care to speculate on complete bike MSRP?

    Nope, not misunderstanding. Just being sarcastic. Should have used an emoticon, I guess.

    There is much room between the tire and the seatstay - so the chainstay must be relatively long. So the Krampus should not be very manoeuvrable like the Karate Monkey. But the 3.0" Knard tire should fit into a Karate Monkey fork

    Anyone know the stand over height and other specs? With 29 inch rims, those tires are going to put you up higher than a normal 29er.

    Wonder what Salsa is up too as Salsa/Surly are sister companies.

    I wonder how it would set up tubeless. Easier than a regular fatbike tire?

    BB drop is nearly identical to a pugsley so expect seat to be riding about 1/2" higher (due to extra radius of the tire/wheel).

    Somewhere between the Pugs and the Necro's MSRP...
