    hey wombat, how's that on one fork working for you? technically the offset should make it "excessively quick" but i've been wondering if it does diddly squat.


    thanks for the reply wombat, exactly what I figured.

    Using the On-One fork on the Stout doesn't make its steering noticeably quicker. I guess the added width over the original 29er wheel more than compensates for any changes caused by the offset.

    Just finished modifying the front end of a hbbc delux beach cruiser that was supposed to be part of a giveway for my business. I say supposed to because I had so much fun riding it I think it'll be permanently in my garage after a custom paint job. Will post a shot tomorrow. Dont know if anyone has tried, but the springer front ends only need some hardware swapped out to take any width you like!

    That's awesome. I've been toying with the idea of picking up a Satori and Bluto-izing the front end.

    In the pic I have a Chunky Monkey set up tubeless but I have since switched to a Maxxis Ikon 2.35 which I much prefer--it's faster, lighter, and provide plenty of grip. It's also set up tubeless on a Surly Rabbit Hole using a split tube.

    Thanks. Your tubeless Chunky Monkey/ Rabbit Hole combo just looked particularly meaty.. maybe it was the angle.

    It was! That's why I switched it to Husker Du in front and Ikon in the rear--it rolls so much better now.

    My Mountain Cycle FRumble. It's intended as my DJ/Trail/Urban bike. It's a 26x2.35 rear. The fat front does make it slack which is what the bike is intended for; a 120-140mm fork. It has a short 50mm stem which I'll stretch to a 80mm so I can climb a bit better on it. It sits at about 33 lbs. Once I replace the cheap boat anchor tire and go tubeless I should be down to 31 lbs.

    After having a problem with my fat frame I have built up this as a temporary fix until I can afford a new fat frame. It's a flyxii carbon 29er frame, Dengfu fork and 80mm front wheel, on one floater tubeless. Stans crest with maxxis minion DHR 2 on the rear, only taken it for a quick spin but it's insanely light and feels great to ride.

    I've got a WTB Scraper i45 on order... Will be building it up for mid-fat usage on the front of my DB Mason HT with a B+ rear.


    BTW: This is awesome!

    I think they are like a training wheel for fat bikes. The wider platform of the 1/2 fat keeps you from tipping over.

    Now I had some other classic bike questions that I've been pondering.

    What is the intended benefit of single speed?
    What is the intended benefit of a hard tail?
    What is the intended benefit of bar ends?
    Why do people ride fat unicycles in the summer?

    Thinking of half fatting my Raleigh XXIX...saw the pugsley non-offset fork and it looks like it will work for me. My question is where do you guys get the wide rims for the front? I see some run rabbit holes and marge lites....is there any more economical alternatives? Just looking for something that will fill the pugs fork and not break the bank. Thanks

    Yes - I have a Balfa Minuteman set up this way.Fat Front Set-Ups: Post Your Pics-fat-front-minuteman.jpg

    Dirt Wizard 2.7 on the back and Fat B Nimble 4.0 front on 47mm Wide Tryall Rims. Fork is a 100mm spaced High Intensity Bikes fork - kinda weird but the price was right for it.

    I usually ride full fat, but for Retro rides I pull out my old 1x1. The Fat B Nimble fits nicely in the front, so it's now a half-fat.

    As little bike as possible, as silent as possible.
