    Currently on your web page, it says "Availability: In stock soon..."

    How soon? Looking to get one in size 18". I'd rather get it from Portland than directly from UK.

    Thanks.

    I presumed that since the bike came with 70mm rims it wouldn't be room for much more. But if 100mm rims and 4,5" tires fit, then that'd be great.

    Katz, I just bought a Dirty Disco CX bike. Been waiting on them coming back in, they are still not in stock till the 17th July but ive paid for it so I have got my place in the queue.

    I see the fatbike has a similar option, though I got mine from the UK.

    ^Hey Ozzy, thanks for the info.

    Although I'd rather get it from the U.S. distributor (easier to return/exchange in case of damage, defect, etc), I'll order it from UK if the wait is going to be longer than a couple of months as I see they got a bunch of 18" Fatties in stock on the UK site.

    Haven't see your riding vid in a while. Post some more in OC

    Cheers Katz, I usually post them here in the Fatbike film thread.

    The planet-x/on-one US site has their fattys available to purchase but "in stock soon", my thinking was if enough people pre purchase before they become available then they wont become available at all

    I have no idea the numbers they are getting in but ive learned that well priced FATBIKE things don't hang around too long.

    Katz, send them an email. They are in stock now and will let you know if there are any available in the size you want.

    I just called them. You're right - turned out they have 11 of size 18" in stock. So order placed. I'll be a fatbike owner soon!

    Yep! If I can move my 29er frame before they run out, I'll be a fat bike owner too!

    I wish it were that simple, if this frame doesn't sell I'm not going fat for a while. Doesn't look like its going to either. I'll be half fat once again.

    EDIT: Thanks for the images, Lars Thomsen! Looks like a tight fit, but I'm sure it works. Is it possible to cram in more tire in the rear as well?

    ^Cool. Thanks for posting the vid! Mine was delivered on Friday - alas, I'm in the opposite end of the country (residence in CA, I'm in AL at the moment).

    I'd take it the X9 shifter/derailleur combo is your own addition?

    Yes, I've changed the shifter, derailleur and the grips. Otherwise it's stock.

    I got also the custom No Fatty -wheelset with the bike so now I got also a rigid 29er

    Just now I'm drilling the wheels to get maybe 1lbs of..

    On One Fat Bike Frame-img_0673.jpgOn One Fat Bike Frame-img_0674.jpgOn One Fat Bike Frame-img_0664.jpgOn One Fat Bike Frame-img_0662.jpg

    Saved just a hair over a pound on the rear wheel by changing tubes and and operating on her.. been reading this whole rotational mass savings issue is a bit overrated, but hey at least the front and rear matches now and I'll be able to accelerate like 2% faster now! That's all that count right?

    No Jig, no pilot holes, just centre punched and drilled, stood on the rim on the lawn. Aluminium is so soft I never had the drill slip. Bit of a mission de-burring, but the Dremel did the job. Did nick a spoke so all I can say is take it slow! Took quite a while to get it all done. More like 3hrs. Either way thanks for putting the vid up John: Drilling fat bike rims in built wheels - YouTube

    Next up will be going 2x10 on the front. Manage to get hold of a crank set, so just need a front mech and shifters. Anybody here got some advice as to what mech to use? What is the frame diameter? Saw a post some time ago suggesting you need a problem solver (which one?)

    Cheers

    I have a tip for avoiding hitting spokes, or slipping through at all when using a hole saw.

    just wrap the hole saw with a few layers of electrical tape, about 3/8 of an inch from the cutting edge. Once the hole saw cuts through the rim, the tape will catch it before it can slip through.

    I used the problem solver direct mount for a fat bike and a cheap slx direct mount that jenson had on sale at the time. You need a bb spacer to replace the stock chain guide.

    But in hindsight I can't see why a bb mounted derailleur wouldn't do the same thing for less.

    Thanks Tim,

    I take it you used this one:
    FS1322 Direct Mount Adapter 34.9/31.8/28.6mm High Direct Mount 100mm

    Think I might just go the same route as yourself seeing I know it's been done

    Nice one! Looks like your little tool works a lot better than the dremel... could not be asked to go and buy one of those, in hind sight it would have saved me a lot of time.

    Nice clean work Tomsson. Did you drill where the rim join was? The pic with the punch show you setting up to.

    Stevob, I did, no way around it. Was a bit strange as it was near centre on the join and the cut-out fell out on 2 pieces. Did you have the same Tomsson?

    Didn't realize I was demonstrating the marking procedure just on top of the pin seam

    I didn't drill the seam.

    Anyone else having trouble with the standard On-One tires not seating correctly? I must have taken them off and put them back on a handful of times but they keep having at least one spot where they are not correctly seated, leading to pretty brutal tire wobble/bobbing. I tried using lots of soapy water and pumping way up to 25 PSI and that seemed to work, but at soon as I lowered to 10 PSI the issue came back.

    I used straight dish washing liquid and that fixed it for me, but until I did this the wobble was very noticeable.

    Yes, that's the one I used. It was simple and straight forward.

    You may have used direct mount derailleurs before but I hadn't, and made the mistake of cutting the outer housing to terminate in the last frame mount when I should've by-passed this completely and terminated it at the derailleur itself.

    Try at least 35 psi and straight dish soap as stated.

    Yes it is. Common 80 grit flap wheel 30mm in diameter. Not too high rpm since those air tools use so much air my small air compressor can't keep up properly if not easying on throttle a little pit

    Does anyone who owns a Fatty have a North Shore Rack?? I'm curious if the On One fork will work with this rack. I just tried a Steel Fatback fork and it will not, the On One is a VERY similar design.

    Just installed a Salsa Beargrease fork...
    Upgrade will continue with the rear wheel (hope+marge lite, under construction) new headset and some bits...

    Maybe I will remove the paint...

    Low pic quality, sorry.

    Look at the total cost for both sites and get whichever is cheaper. So far it's always been the UK site, as US shipping is much higher. The current price from the UK with shipping is less (in US$) than the purchase price from the US. The latter site is much more expensive once you add shipping.

    Edit: and looking at the UK site, it indicates that there's free international shipping so it will be even cheaper.

    I sanded the sides of the tires lightly to get good seat.

    I also finally had success. Cleaned the tire bead, rubbed the rim flange with undiluted dish soap, and inflated up to 30 PSI. Waited 10 mins, and then deflated down to 10 PSI, and tire was still on right :-).

    I had a chance to try my Fatty for the first time over the weekend.

    I assembled it with all the parts it came with, super-wide bar, 80mm stem, etc. It felt really awkward to me (5'10" on 18" frame), so I took 730mm bar and 40mm stem off my DJ bike and put them on. The bike came alive! Not that it has anything to do with fatbike's intended use, I am pleasantly surprised how well the bike manuals.

    Thanks. I'll make a longer video when I get acclimated to the bike. I hurt my wrist a while ago and the bike's heavy, so I can't bunnyhop well yet.

    However, I overall prefer the original fork for a more downhill ride.

    I don't think this is very surprising. If you look at the photos above the original Fatty fork is slanted forward quite a bit creating a head angle that is quite slack. The Beargrease fork is straight creating a much more steep angle. Steeper angles lead to more nimble handling, but also a lot less stability.

    This is what worries me about putting a suspension fork on this bike. Afraid it might throw off the handling too much. I had emailed Brant a few weeks back asking if any of the current carbon forks would work but he mentioned the handling change....he also mentioned they should will have a carbon fork in a few months...

    Lets just hope that atleast the carbon fork they are working on will have that same slant than the steel fork. I love that 68deg head angle it gives and would not want anything steeper!
