    Winter and summer weights, both with wellgo flats plus light and gps mounts. With spds about 100g lighter and it would be very easy to shave another 1/2 pound or more off with a few lighter parts (i.e hacksaw and drill.)

    Seeing as we are talking about the lightest fatbike, has anyone compiled a list of the frame and fork weights?

    my 907 came in at about about 34Lbs with my nates on
    I think If I work at it by adding a drop post and lefty fork I could get it up to 36 maybe 37 lbs
    it dose needs a good sturdy rack on the back so 40Lbs is not out of the question

    my personal Pug, with Large Marges, a Larry and Nate. (w/tubes) and regular parts (X0 GripShift and X0 rear deraileur, triple front, Hayes Stroker Trail brakes).

    No silly weight saving efforts beyond the e*thirteen cranks and the Carbon SS Chub hub on the front (coz' it was there and I was feeling silly).

    Just weighed by a local weight weenie magazine editor at 34.4Lb.

    It also allowed him to clear the one climb that he's never cleared before, due to lack of traction on his Spark. (on my Pug, with a Nate at 6psi)

    Don't really know if it's better in reverse, it's the only way I've run them so far. Not sporting them in this pic but this is the conditions I've been using them in and we need all the traction we can get. btw that's SJ's 907.

    Can you help me answer this question, for single track riding during the summer, the marge lite rims should be better than the rolling darryls, correct? lighter but still fat enough to eat up the trail. Am I correct?

    Yeah I think the Marge Lite would be the hot ticket for summer single track use. They should run about 60-70 grams less each then my self drilled Rolling D's.

    I'm anxiously awaiting the new Hope hubs. I wanna do a Hope+Marge Lite+HD combo.
    Hoping the Hopes aren't hopelessly expensive.

    local bikeshop (https://www.facebook.com/angrycatfish) has one of the hope proto's in stock. They are thinking the rear will retail at $266, no update on the front yet. sounds like they are OK on a weight front too.

    A friend of mine just built up a set for his Pugs 135/100mm hubs using WTB lazer lites and HD's. Super fast and light wheelset.

    That would be a good price, since that's what the regular 135mm Evo's list for.

    Just curious if you have any measurements of the Husker on a clown shoe have been curious what kind of size people get on them with this big rim.

    Actually the Carver Ti frame with the carbon fork are probably the best values out there for ti at least. I give Carver prompts to making Ti a little more affordable.

    So comparing the LM lite with the Darryls in regards to jumps and bumps in the trails, how does the LM lite suck up the impacts compared to Darryls, Darryls are slow but feel like butter? Opinion?

    Thats stunning.

    I'm putting together a Ti fatbike with blue bits. I can never stop myself going too far though (just bought blue saddle, silly smallfurry). Wish I had your judgement

    Also 1+ to Carver love. They may not be offering locally (well local to you Merkins ) built frames. But they're bringing Ti into a whole new price bracket. Plus look stunning.

    well, frame at about 1400, fork at 300.
    fatback's ti is 2000, another 400 for their carbon fork..
    not comparing the two quality-wise, just saying it's definitely not the most expensive you can make a ti frame/carbon fork'd bike

    complete builds as bought form the companies will be cheaper I'm sure, but that's a 700$ price gap there.
    for that $ I'd get the carver custom built with SnS couplers, maybe the softtail seatstay cluster too, and take it everywhere.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!
