    A version able to take hubgears would get an instant purchase from me.

    There's no production fatbike that takes the fatter tyres and will fit a hubgear - or am I mistaken?

    adding a +1 to the I did not see this coming either. That looks great! Sounds like there will be some great offerings for carbon fat bikes now!

    Why do the thru-axles have what appear to be nuts on the end?

    (TWSS)

    No really though...are there no threads in the frame or fork?

    Thanks bdundee. I am a little upset that when I pre-ordered my new 190 mm aluminum bike two weeks ago I was not let in on this secret. I may pull back my order.

    Sorry if anyone Ordered a Aluminum Frame and got a Surprise this morning. But we couldn't release a Pic till we actually saw it. You can certainly change any Orders if you want to Go Carbon.
    More Info and lots of Pics coming in the Next Week.
    But heres a Few Details.
    9:Zero:7 Whiteout
    190mm Spaced Rear, Thru Axle Front and Rear, Tapered Fork, Sizes will be S, M, and L. With Tons of Stand Over. Did I mention it will be LIGHT Weight! Thanks

    They posted on facebook that the estimated price would be around $2300. Thanks AkSnow for chiming in as it sure helps to hear things strait from the horses mouth so to speak. Gcappy I can't wait to lay my eyes on your new creation, I'm sure it will be a beauty!

    Of course you're right. I've been thinking of replacing my Pug with a Moonie.

    I should have made my thinking clearer - I was meaning the new models being released rather than updates of existing stuff.

    So the carbon due date is December or January, my new aluminum due date is September, I have no fat bike to ride now because my wife stole it. Do I take delivery of a very beautiful aluminum bike or wait even longer for the carbon? Or do I take the aluminum in September and then sell it in January and build up a carbon? This fat bike thing is hard!!!

    if past history is any indication, by the time you need fatbike frames or parts, they will long since be sold out.. assuming they arrive on time.. so if you wait til mid-winter to gather parts for a build, you'll be out of luck..
    if you can afford to do BOTH, then thats what I would do...

    or just make sure every part you get for the aluminum bike can be swapped over to the carbon frame... that's probably the route i'm going to go..

    I think we would need new hubs due to the through axles on the carbon.

    Tough call, I've played the AK waiting game a couple of times and even though the waits where well worth it they where never close to the estimated eta. That being said a bird in the hand........

    Your point is valid. I doubt that any sort of adventuring or even much utility was on the radar for this one. Ride it like you stole it would be my guess.

    That carbon frame is pretty nice! I think/hope there is still a lot more evolution coming to the fat bike world though. Suspension, wheels and tires have a long way to go still in my eyes.

    Right, but do you just push them through the frame, then tighten a nut on the end? Based on what I'm seeing as far as measurements on those thru-axles, that's pretty much how it's going to have to work.

    Interesting...

    Now that Spesh is in the game...perhaps they'll push that if they start making money on their fatty. They've done that pretty well with the Roval carbons on their other bikes, and brought prices down to 'almost affordable'.

    That frame is sexy stuff, I love my blue 907 but damn...
