    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.

    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).

    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.

    Yup. Unless you're always riding in perfect conditions, clearance is a MUST!

    I find it humorous that some companies still aren't matching the moonlander for clearance after two years. This time there was no tire/rim suprise, it was there to play with and work all last year. If this is what they came up with, I guess then its only really fatback and borealis that got it right in 2013/2014

    I'm gonna build my rear wheel next week. When the frame shows up, I'm gonna do a trial fit before I even take the foam off main triangle.

    Keep us all posted. I'm pretty sure I'm canceling mine unless I see a pic with better clearance. So far I'm a bit bummed.

    I talked to a guy at 907 a couple days ago and he assured me there was clearance for a bigger tire than a Lou. He didn't have a bike built to measure since they were just arriving that day. I was feeling pretty good until the pics. Hopefully they'll measure the tight spots for you. Keep us posted.

    I think everyone should pull their bundled up panties out of their nether regions.

    I would really have a hard time believing that a company that only makes fat bike would not design this bike to accommodate bud and lou on hundies.

    I find the over reaction to a single picture at a bad angle to be kinda funny.

    I am not sure who makes them, I like to think it is Eskimos forging them in their igloos. Either way, I have had a few sets now and can tell you that I have been really impressed with the hub quality all around. The bearings even after tons of rough miles still spin with the best of them and the freehub body system is beefier than several other brands I compared it to with the pawls both substantial and the spring very strong. I have the utmost confidence in my hubs.

    Hey Gene, I wonder, do you have numbers for the largest of the dimensions for Bud tubeless. I get 117 wide and 770 tall. Just curious about variance from one tire to the other. I have one Endomorph that is a good 5% bigger than the others.

    Thanks,
    Steven

    Definitely impressed with Espen's activity on the forum. Wish all manufacturers would follow suit.

    I am confused. You wrote farther up on this thread that they did answer your question of clearance. If you are wondering why didn't they post on this particular thread with more pictures well, they are very busy guys that came back from Interbike not long ago and have a lot to sort out between that and new product moving. I don't think they spend a lot of time (or have the time) to spend on these boards addressing every possible concern.

    Frankly, there were people riding these bikes for days at the dirt demo at Interbike. Based on pictures there were at least a few that had 100's and Bud/Lou's, so people were riding them.

    They really never answered my question. I asked them for dimension's between frame and tire. They only told me they fit and possibly a bigger tire would fit. I have asked them the same question several times over the last couple months and not just on this forum. As for them being busy they have posted pics today on Facebook so I'm sure they have been reading requests by myself and others in the pic comments. As far as the bikes being ridden at Interbike I really don't care as I plan to ride the bike in snow, ice and a bit of mud. Any frame has clearance for dry dirt.

    Steve, I have not put the Bud tubeless yet so I have no numbers. The NATE's on my wife's bike are tubeless and I will perform the tube ectomy on the Bud/Lou combo as soon as the bike gets here.

    I had about 119mm tubeless Bud on a 90mm Uma so just guessing that you could add 3-4mm on to that.

    So with all that press around Interbike and countless images of sideshots, pointless shots of the top tube , not one shot that the majority of the fat biking community really cares about? tire clearance on the rear triangle, crank arm clearance, etc. Maybe they need better marketing people to really bring up the high points of the clearance. Unless of course they dropped the ball and are doing "damage control".

    Definitely looks a little better than the other pic at the seat stays. Just need a better pic of the chain stays and hopefully a couple measurements.

    No owner pics yet. They will be shipping some bikes out this week but none yet. Straight from 907 in an email.

    Sure a little more clearance would be nice but then we would probably encounter more heel strikes, calves hitting the seat stays, etc.. Guess there is always a little give and take in frame design.

    They have given me "promises" about when they would start sending shipments for some weeks, but none of them has proven to be correct.

    Yeah, I want to ride mine in the dirt this year but if it doesn't get here very soon that wont happen unless I put it on the car and head south.

    They told me via email that the frames, etc. arrived last week, and they had already started building wheels. They said they would start to ship bikes out this week.

    If you look at the 907 web site the Bud/Lou Clownshoe option is an upgrade to the complete bike builds. It was a small up charge to get them. I ordered from the web site and got the upgrade.
    Yes the pictures depict Lou on a Clownshoe.
    The bikes have not shipped yet. I would call them directly and ask for the upgrade.

    I ordered a complete bike thru their website and chose the upgrade option for CS/Bud/Lou. They haven't said anything to me about CS not being available for their bikes. Perhaps they are prioritizing CS rims for the complete bikes.

    Sorry - Gcappy essentially covered this while I was writing ...

    I've heard excellent things about CRC. Sounds like a great build - might it be the green one from the pics above? I see a Chair Reaction sticker on it and it looks like a 1x with the gold cranks
    I wonder what my 2x10 chain/wheel clearance will look like...
