    I have not looked yet but I think the rear could stand to remove some paint from the drop out. All 3 times this has happened it is me hammering up a hill in a harder gear vs sitting and spinning. I attribute doing that to riding almost exclusively on a SS bikes, this is actually my only gear bike.

    IT would be great of DT Swiss made a RWS thru-bolt for the 170mm rear. Like this DT Swiss - RWS Thru bolt

    looking at my future wheel upgrade... I am worried on them fitting... I will be buying the carbon fatty fork first of course...

    Surly Clown Shoes front and back
    Surly bud and lou tires

    (or are the bfls better???) I will be riding trails, but mostly flatland concrete...

    or if these won't fit (which will be a bummer)

    should I go with a set of the Rolling Darryls... same tire questions...

    thanks!!!

    Sorry but CS and 4.8 tires is no go both rear and front .
    On one Fatty carbon fork with RD and Bud is OK but mud clearance is minimal.

    well that sucks... but I guess a set of RD and a bud and lou combo would be sweet as well... or I have also looked at the 45NRTH Du's as well... choices, choices...
    oops... I am assuming the 4.8s don't fit front AND back either... looks like a set of BFLS or DU'S...

    I had a change to ride this tubeless Fatty on trail.It was better than original set-up,however i like more Floater as rear tire than Knard 120tpi.

    wow looks cool... I am wondering if running different sized tires like that works properly or should I match a set of BFLs or DUs...

    Matching tires looks way better allways but if you have chance to try different front tires i highly recommend to do it.Fatbikes steering and riding characters varies hugely due to the front end ie. tire size/pressure.Rear tire will follow where front goes.

    So is there any consensus on the sizing on this bike? If you are at the upper range of the medium, should you instead go for the largest one if you like to use a short stem?

    They do make one, they come factory on Beargrease carbon. The 12x177 is what it is called but it fits the stock hub that takes 170mm QR or 12x177mm. The spacers are wider to work with the thru frame kit. Looks just the one in your picture.

    Hi,
    After reading a lot on fat bikes for the last year, i decided to order a fatty rolling chassis size large...should get it pretty soon!
    Pics to come.

    One question, any of you tried existing frame bag in the fatty frame? Like something made for another brand of bike... I dont want to go with a custom frame bag if something already made fit.

    I think you are asking if anyone has used a Lefty in a Fatty frame. Many people have done this without any problems. You just need a Lefty with removable clamps and then use the fat bike clamp from Mendon Cycle Smith.

    Ordered the On-one Fatty Cruiser for £699. Seems like too good a bargain to miss!

    Okay, I see it now.

    So, has anyone ordered it? Why is there a $300 difference between the 2 x 10 and the 1 x 10?

    Is it reasonable to ride this thing if you're six feet tall?

    i got the rolling chassi lately, i found that the fatty fork was defective(crack Inside the steertude)one one is taking care of me on this...

    While i'm wating on my new fork, i toy ideas around for a 3 day fatbike trip I'm doing this winter with friends.
    this is what i did today... a top tube bag with an old porta pack frame bag i had home, with a custom pocket Inside for my cell phone or a camera

    I was thinking some similar but filling the space in the triangle also. Having two zippers up top that I could put a phone in and some food in another. Still have the side pocket though.

    There is a local guy here who does frame bags, he has shown interest in building this idea for me.

    medium revelate bag works good in the triangle.

    full frame bag. It tends to pack out wider than on the surly due to the wider design of the twin top tubes, kind of makes up for the smaller vertical area.

    Has any one run the On One fatty frame with 29+ wheels yet? Curious if there is enough clearance with a Knard.

    Thanks and if you have pics, post 'em if you got 'em.

    Not a chance. The Knard 3.0 on a R/H hits the chainstay bridge. No amount of trimming will get it to fit.

    currently my partner has a salsa mukluk, and i am considering porting most of the parts over to a fatty frame with carbon forks as a christmas present.

    how much weight difference would there be between the mukluk frame and fork vs a fatty and carbon fork?

    are the decals on the carbon fork on top or below the lacquer?

    re the frame, what size seatpost does it take? i would be interested in upgrading her to a dropper seatpost.

    Been enjoying my fatty since Feb, it has been ridden more than any of my other bikes by far and away.

    I am trying to find a proper frame bag for it, does anyone use a Ibera large bag?

    Good question, the chain and seat stays could fit more but the chain is really close to the tire in the big cog. I really wanted to get a Bulldozer for the rear but was afraid it would not fit, and since all the reviews said the Snowshoe was nowhere near 4.7, I figured it was worth a try. I wish it had better side knobs. I must say that the Snowshoe XL I'm running up front is an amazing tire, and wish Vee tire made the exact tire, just smaller for the rear. All in all with the Bluto and current setup, this bike is a blast to ride.

    Thanks for the input jvm, I actually have a Bulldozer on the way also hoping to put it on the back....I guess I'll find out if it will fit.

    Thanks fishcreek, i'll be interested to hear if it fits as the bulldozer is almost exactly the width.
