    Framed Alaskan Carbon on the way...

    Interesting how?

    Looks like another generic carbon fat frame to me.

    I've seen the prototype being ridden around locally. It looks pretty well sorted, and is pretty sexy

    Except instead of a compete bike at $4,500 it will probably be closer to 2,500. You may not be interested, but I certainly am.

    They should shoot whomever edited that video.

    The video should only contain one rider dragging his rear tire down an entire mile of singletrack.

    Almost making me rethink my BD Night Train purchase....almost .

    Still like the combo of rear end and overall specs on the NT more plus saving a $1000 . Carbon frame is pretty sweet though.

    btw, you can get the very same frame form china for under $1000 shipped. transfer all night train components and booom. you have carbon frame with specs you like for that price.

    I like your thinking . I'll roll around on my NT for a while and then, if I feel a frame upgrade is in order, fiddle around with a China carbon .

    Heard back from The House about Framed Alaskan Fat Bike Carbon frame.

    My question was as follows:

    - Thanks for getting back to me. You are really lucky having tried one. It sounds amazing! I need to change my line of work.....more fun, less stress....

    - Any idea of price point and approx date? $2.5k? Could you narrow it down to Spring 2015, Summer 2015, Autumn 2015 or Winter 2015?

    Their reply was as follows:

    - Frames could be here as early as this fall. The Alaskan series will be a custom series, it sounds like, we'll give you a number of options for components and the price will be based off that. Starting sounds like around $2,200 but that's not finalized yet.

    This is really exciting

    I just saw this post of Facebook. Here are all the details I could see.

    21" is in the works but we don't have a timeline yet. Weight on the 17" frame is 1400g and matching carbon fork is 660g. Base build for the Alaskan Carbon Bluto (X7/BB7, Famed Pub Hubs, and Maxxis tires) $2,395. The X1 build pricing isn't available yet. Alaskan Carbon bikes should be in stock Nov 15th.

    Just throwing out the information.

    I stopped in The House the other day. Salesperson was really excited about the new Alaskan models and had spent some saddle time on the aluminum framed model. Here a few pics from their brochure he gave me:

    I just saw this posted on Facebook. I was curious about the hubs and wheels...and I found this post.

    The Framed Pub Hub runs 6 pawls with three teeth a piece...high/instant engagement hubs. The 2.0 hubs are solid...these hubs are amazing. If you run Teflon grease they sound like a chainsaw. Rims will be lighter too!

    Things are gettin interesting!
