    The wheels that came on the bike were wide enough for the frame and did not need spacers.

    Did the 9r wheelset come with the same rear hub as the original Sturgis wheels? Novatech D202SB?

    Yes, but set up for 190mm instead of 197mm.

    Oh, well then you should be able to use the ends from your original wheels. At least then you wouldn't have to deal with the extra spacers...

    You may want to clarify your first post regarding this wheel in the case your wheels aren't wrong. As that'll off-put quite a few people errantly. We have enough misinformation in these threads.

    To be fair, pretty much anything in Ti is deserving of its own thread.

    Yeah and the decals really look like Moots.

    In fact, swap the second "O" with the "T" and you can ride a MOOTBECANE!

    I am interested to see reviews of this bike. I have been riding my Lurch on the same trails I rode my FS Stump jumper on so I wouldn't mind a full squish fatness.

    I received this email update on 3/26:

    Hi, Thanks for being a smart cyclist and saving hundreds on your new Gravity Quigley Fat Bike.

    Update on your order -

    The Ocean Freight companies delivering these bikes to the U.S. have notified us that the shipment of Quigley Fat Bike will be delayed by about 2 weeks. We are now expecting them to arrive around 4/15/15. The moment they are delivered to our warehouse we will do everything possible to have them shipped out the same day.

    The delay is completely out of our control, however, we do apologize for any inconvenience. We will email you once these arrive and ship out to customers.

    Thanks again for being a smart cyclist and saving hundreds off your new Gravity Fat Bike.

    Best regards,

    The Friendly Folks at Bikesdirect.com

    Can't wait until some of these bikes get back in stock. I'm not big on the whole "pay now and get your bike in 3 months" thing.

    Ordered on Saturday, delivered on Wednesday. The BikesDirect Motobecane Boris X7 looks better than I imagined it would, considering they had no actual picture of the bike in it's Lilac color. Ordered the tires from Planet X on Monday, they showed up at my LBS on Tuesday...Wow!! 38 pounds assembled. I'm pleased.

    So it's pretty clear that the On One Floater and the Vee Mission are manufactured by the same company. They have the exact same color options on Planet X and are the same price. So why does BD ship their bikes with the Vees and not the On Ones?

    The only reason I can think of is some business or copyright mojo where they want On One as a separate brand or something.

    BD if you are listening, please start shipping your bikes with the On One Floaters. It won't cost you anything and people will stop having to swap out their tires as the first thing they do with their new fat bikes.

    Otherwise much respect to BD for their fat bike offerings, support and quality.

    I believe the person that designed the OnOne Floaters is on here. If you search you will find the thread. He had VeeMission make the tires to his design.

    I like the 120 TPI Silicon Snowshoes. The roll and grip well and were a bit lighter then the OnOne Floaters I had.

    I realize your post is a few months old but I have not had this issue on mine. I only ride in snow so I don't ride it as much as my regular mountain bike.

    Check the lurch lounge thread. Many posts regarding problems with rear QR skewer and steps people have taken to correct it. Not sure if it's the same skewer and dropout configuration as the FB4.

    Sorry I missed your post / question on this. We've never heard of this issue with any of the FB4 Motobecane fatbikes. If you have not already Please email bd4servicecenter@aol.com with pics of your QRs and your hub/dropouts with a detailed note of what is going on?

    Joining the Moto FB club

    OK, first off, forgive me... I've only read the first 48 pages of this thread. So I haven't yet read about all the discoveries and insights gained.

    The other day, a guy posted a FB4 Comp for sale on a local forum. Since I'd be looking for a used fatty, the timing was perfect. I landed the deal for $525 on Christmas morning.

    The bike came already converted to 1x10 with a SRAM GX crank and a Shimano XT 11-36 cassette.

    Moto / bikes direct fatbikes!-10372035_10153677823235932_3511609728741798892_n.jpg

    After the maiden voyage and shakedown, I hauled the bike to the basement and started moving hot rod parts from my seldom-ridden 26" FS bike (coincidentally, also green/back) over.

    So now, here's my Green Piggy:

    Moto / bikes direct fatbikes!-img_3410.jpg

    11-42 cassette with One-Up ring, Goat Link, and XT rear derailleur

    Moto / bikes direct fatbikes!-img_3418.jpg

    I rode it to the shop yesterday to have my mech check the headset and bottom bracket. I had repacked the headset; that's good-to-go. But the BB needs a refresh. No problemo.

    While there, threw it on the scale:

    Moto / bikes direct fatbikes!-12458777_10153686264880932_702334799_o.jpg

    34# 5 oz with pedals, bottle cage, Garmin, and commuter light on the handlebars. Not bad.

    I'm now at six MTBs in the house. Oops.

    I'm looking forward to reading the next 100+ pages to learn what you've learned. Clearly, tires are issue #1. These Vee Missions are useless in slick mud. After that, I'm interested in learning more about the durability of the Q-Tubes vs the heavy stockers vs the newest strategies for a tubeless conversion.

    Having fun, and riding with a big grin on my face again.

    MegaMustang - likewise - also welcome to the club. Ya the Mission tires are Ok for dry stuff but are largely useless in mud and snow. Upgrade tires first, get a set of Mulefut wheels if you can, and you'll prob want better brakes. But the bike is fun even stock.

    Oldens (and/or others),
    I got a Mulefut for the front.... EASY.
    Now, what is the best way to do one in the rear? Does anyone sell one, ready-to-go, for our unique offset, or is it best to have one built? The rim is available on eBay for $108, but determining the right spokes and lacing it up optimally is probably beyond my skills. Interested in any/all advice.
    Thanks in advance!
