    My last-minute semi-fat front decision (fueled at 10:00PM after having drunk two 650ml bottles of 10.6% ABV barleywine the night before the race) helped land me a 1st place finish for the men’s Cat 3 (35-44 age range) Napa Valley Dirt Classic cross-country race this past Sunday. Came in an amazing 6 minutes and 11 seconds ahead of second place, and finished in shorter time than 1/2 of the Cat 2 guys of the same age range.

    The semi-fat setup was using a 2.3" wide WTB tire mounted on a 26"x65mm Surly Large Marge rim on my well-used older model Santa Cruz Superlight full suspension bike. Had an anemic 2.1" wide rear tire mounted on a pinner-assed 28mm wide Salsa Gordo rim in back. Was great for the off-camber downhill stuff on the loose terrain sections.

    If my wife will let me blow $350 or so, I want to get one of those DUC32 front forks so as to run an Endomorph or Larry on the same rim.

    Cool bike. What did you use for shifters?

    Thanks! I'm using Velo Orange thumbshifter mounts, similar to Paul's Thumbies, to shift 2x8. Not ideal for technical singletrack but works well for fire roads and the like.

    Fat Front GF Rig...

    Anyone every Fat fronted a GF Rig??

    I had mine set up for a time, then stripped it down and sold it all to finance my xtracycle conversion... wish I would have done things a little differently now... someday I will have a full fat bike.

    considering the whole hive/e-13 crankset tri-lobe interface was designed by peacock groove it's already got an "in".

    "They are two different things entirely. I've spoken to Marty now about calling his frame a Singular, which I'd rather he didn't do as I've had no hand in the design or development of it. Marty is the US distributor for Singulars, and he is trying to make a fat bike which has similar handling to a Swift. It's being built by Peacock Grove bikes, and while it looks like an interesting project it won't be a Singular. The Puffin project is on a slow burn at the moment, I have other stuff to sort out first.... "

    Here is my newly converted fat front setup. My Jbars should be here today, install them and then I think it will be golden. LOVE this setup.
