    New 9:ZERO:7 frame

    Slidey dropouts (135mm)
    Belt compatibility
    Increased clearance for 100mm rims

    Dammit. If I didn't already have my 9:zero:7, this one would have been top of my list!

    I can't think of a better frame for expeditions / adventure cycling. Can't wait to get one of these and a belt-drive cog for the Rohloff, then ditch the chain and tensioner.

    I would ride that...

    So the wait is nearly over for my new sand tractor project, but question is 100mm rims with what tyre on the rear

    Interesting times, only $50 between this & the fatback with sliders

    Is this a sand-specific frame meant for belts and internal gearing?

    Can a derailleur setup be used?

    I'm trying to decide how best to piece together a fatbike and options are bewildering.

    The picture shows a derailler hanger so a derailler is an option.
    As to the sand specific question. I think that is more marketing than reality. All the bikes can be used on all surfaces. And while there are geometry differences between them, for the most part they do fit within a fairly narrow band so the choice of rims and tires can have at least as much effect on the handling as the difference in frame design. For sure there are differences in the frames and if you could it is good to test different ones. But for example I've always thought the Pugs handled kind of like a truck and my first generation "snow specific" Fatback handled much more like a "regular" mountain bike. However you can find comments on this forum from people who think the Pugs handles much more like a "regular" bike than any other fatbike. Much of it really is in the eye of the beholder. The other thing is don't stress too much about your first fatbike because you will probably want another one fairly soon anyway.....
