    Re: Fat & Bob

    I've seen it and will be trying it... I've read that all you need is the 28" yoke...

    "Santana+" yoke
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?

    Not quite touring but i used my fatbob for an overnighter out to a remote Scottish beach, handles fine loaded offroad. I also often used it to carry driftwood off of the coast

    The 28" yoke (for 130mm hub) and the Santana yoke (for 160mm) are not the same.
    Which one will fit?

    I have an BOB Ibex trailer which I need to be modified for an upcoming 4 week trip around Europe with my 9Zero7.

    Is anyone using either of the two yokes on a fatwheel, like 4.0?

    Does the Santana fit the larger wheels?

    well...which size hub do you have?

    also, try doing a search on this forum, this question has been asked and answered maybe 4 or 5 times

    People use the 28" fork. No talk of the Santana fitting the fat tire.
    Do you use one?

    The standard fork on my Ibex has legs too short, so if the Santana doesn't have longer ones, as the 28" does, I don't see how it could fit.

    Maybe I should start a thread on this.

    The 29er BoB fork will fit around a BFL on a 100 mm rim. The problem is the skewer, because the widest one BoB makes is for a 160 mm hub. It will work on a 165 mm frame, but not 170 mm, in my experience. You have to either work up a custom skewer, or use a solid axle and BoB nuts.

    Ah yes, the skewer.

    I bought an M5 threaded steel rod, grade 10.9 (25cm are needed) and some hex nuts and ready is the skewer, for 10$.

    The cap, which has the quick release lever on it (well, now doesn't), has an hole which is slightly too small to let the rod through, so this has to be bored up carefully to not to damage the thread (best done on a lathe).
