    Lets See Some Pics Of The 190mm 9:ZERO:7.

    I know that no one has received production frames, but I know there are some prototypes out in the wild. I really want to see Bud n' Lou on on Clownshoes on my favorite fatty.

    I am not quite as excited as you are for YOUR frame to show up, but I am pretty jazzed up to see your build.

    I am just stoked to start seeing more and more 190mm frames trickling in. I am dying waiting for my own to get out of paint shop!

    it has been a labo(u)r of love, placed the order in march of 2013 feels like an eternity ago. At least now the frame is built and getting painted soon.

    Um, it's gonna look like a 170 frame with an extra 2cm.

    Really...WOW!! Never thought of it that way.

    I don't care about the frame, I care about the beasties Bud and Lou tucked within the frame.

    those pics look so suspect, dont understand how they fit a 100mm on Lou with a non double offset crank.

    It's gonna look like a fatbike with slightly fatter tires.

    You'd be surprised what you can cram into a frame for a static shot.

    True that. We mounted Lou on an 80mm rim in our Mk2 frame with 21.5mm offset and Samox triple crank. That is close to 4.6'' knob width right there. No rubbing in the 22/34.
    When we put a 230lb test rider on it, however, different story.

    Just got the Mk3 190 proto frames, though. Look sweet and were lighter than the offset ones. High 1400's anodized in 17'' including hanger. They will handle Lou on our new 103s any time of the day.

    Do you really need pics to imagine the enormous difference between a 4.8" tire on a tiny little, almost insignificant 80mm rim and one that's mounted on a rim that's a massive gigantic 3/4" wider?

    I mean, three quarters of an inch, thats the kind of difference you can see from space.

    That's gonna increase float to where you can just ride the thing over powder.

    I am looking for pics...not your opinion or impression of what the tires will/won't do.

    You know its not only the width of the tires, but the sidewall height also that will affect float? Air those badboys down to 5psi with 275lbs on them and watch me float over powder like a puck on a air hockey table.

    Agreed. I find myself checking Fatbikes FB and web pages multiple times per day, hoping to see some freshly loaded 190mm pics. Maybe later this week...

    I'm patiently Waiting For mine. I went with Rolling Darryls however, i figure the 5-6 mm loss of width with the bud and lou vs the Clown shoe will be made up by lighter weight and they should work better with 3.8's for summer riding.

    I was looking for colored rims, but there were none to be had. i had the dealer send out my Darryls to be powder coated white, seriously stoked for this bike, where i was working today it snowed about an inch. Northern AB Canada.

    Sweet. I am going to build two more set's of rims for our bikes. Trying to decide on colors. My wife's will have to be white to stay with her current theme. Have to find a powder coat guy around here (upstate ny).

    Ooh, this is good to hear A couple weeks ago I called 'em and switched from green to raw - after I got to thinking how much I like my raw Rush.

    That'll look sharp! I looked all over their site for colored CS's - but I must've been a day late (and a dollar short)

    The shop was only working on the local builds and dialing in the demos they had in Vegas. The new frames did arrive last week in Anchorage. Not sure when they will be shipping out though.

    Hope they didn't drop the ball on rear tire clearance at seat and chainstays. That tire is looking really tight compared to the Fatback and Borealis.

    Who needs clearance on a 907 for big tires anyways. It's a soft ground special novelty bike after all, right!?

    This feels like 2012 907 all over again, shoddy images of their 170mm with then the BFL tire in 100mm rims, real quiet on how it actually fits and once people started trying it, was no where close to the stuff they were trying to push.

    I'm hoping for the best but kinda expecting the worst. I've been trying for months to get a real answer on clearance but no word yet. I would love if they chimed in either on here or facebook. I'm tired of clearing snow, ice and mud from my seat and chainstays. Any bit of room helps tremendously.
