    I figure low engagement hubs won't matter that much on snow?

    Actually, quick engagement hubs are always better... especially at a slow stall and go pace like in the snow.

    Both the White/Orange and Black Minnesota 2.0 are now showing up as In Stock. They were both showing up as back ordered yesterday. Only 18" left in the White/Orange and 16 and 18" in the Black. So they should be shipping real soon since they show Ships Immediately for the 2 colors in stock.

    I called this morning to switch from the black/white to the black/black that shows in stock and was told that the they are not in stock and the "In Stock" status is an error. Sigh...

    The service rep also told me that the stock dates are usually very accurate.

    Fat Bike Update! The bikes are at customs getting inspected which is causing a short delay. We should know more soon on an incoming date to The House Boardshop

    Oh man... I was really hoping to hear some early shipping news today! I hope Customs doesn't hold things up too much.

    Does anyone know the width of the Fattie Slims rims that come with the package?


    Also, what is the relationship between Framed and The House?

    Waiting patiently (sort of)!

    Take care,

    Mike

    Honestly, I'd keep the black/white. I've read black rims like to collect snow on the trails. They warm in the sun then freeze again when snow hits them.

    I did keep the black/white combo. I was trying to be slick and do the switch to what was supposedly in stock. :0

    Looks like they are on the way, keeping fingers crossed.

    I think the black/white looks really slick.

    I almost went with it, but I've never owned a white bike and the orange rims just looked cool and funky... I mean hey, it's a fat bike, make it funky right?!

    Patiently, or not Patiently waiting over here. I have a bikepacking trip in Pisgah scheduled for the 6-9th of February. All of my accessories are sitting in the garage with panniers, frame bags, hammocks, bags, you name it.. Just need a bike to put it on so I don't have to take the 29er!

    Cmon customs!

    I've got a 6 hour adventure race planned for Feb 8th so I'm patiently waiting for the bike to arrive. I'll be happy as long as I get it before the 8th but the sooner I get it the better. I would like to give it a few shake down rides before setting out on a 6 hour race.

    Let me know how you enjoy Pishgah on the Fat Bike. A few of my friends have done the 5 day stage race down there the past 2 years. I'm considering heading down there next September to race it but not on the Minnesota LOL

    Anybody knows what kind of crank it comes with?
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun

    Nope it appears to be a SRAM Truvativ with a 100mm ISIS Bottom Bracket.

    This is what the SRAM X5 Fatbike Crank with the 100mm GXP Bottom Bracket looks like.

    I'm assuming they can but we won't know for sure until we get them and we can measure the BCD on the crank.

    I'm not sure how ideal the 38/28T gearing will be in the front so I'm hoping it's 104BCD since I'm playing with the idea of converting it to 1x10 by possibly putting a Single Race Face 30T Narrow Wide Chainring in the front and putting a 10 speed cassette in the rear with a 42T OneUp Component Cog in the rear. I've already got the 10 speed XT Cassette, Shifter and chain so I would need the 10 speed rear derailleur.

    I haven't ordered anything yet since I want to see what type of rear hub comes with the bike. Someone on here had said that the only 170mm rear hub they could find that Quando made was of the screw-on threaded type versus the more common regular splined freehub.

    The House page is now showing "Backorder Ship on 1/24/14". That is a little sooner than the original 1/30/14 date, but not quite as good as some of the rumors. Either way, I am stoked to get my bike!

    Take care,

    Mike

    Looks like the bikes have cleared customs and are on their way to Minnesota. This was just posted on the Framed Bike Facebook Page.

    about a minute ago near Minneapolis, MN, United States.

    Our Minnesota 2.0 and 1.0's are on the move again and headed to St.Paul MN!

    Patiently waiting. Originally when they thought they would get them in on the 20th, they told me it's possible to have by the 27th. I'm hoping they get them with 1/24 and I'll have it the 1st or so. Fingers crossed. Need it by the 4th so I'll have time to get 50 miles or so breakin before my trip.
