    I am going to drill mine out over the next couple of days as time allows. Just trying to determine hole size. I would like 1.5", but per anothers recommendation 1.375" may be safer. Need to take a closer look when i get home.

    Of course the gold standard is to use cogs with prime numbers

    I still try to do this with my fixed wheel

    Are you drilling them down the center?

    Maybe you could go bigger if you offset, and alternate sides?

    On the Fatty, the outer ring must be 32 teeths, no more, this one is 36-24, it shall be too close ...
    You can look at the photos from Ed Uxley on the On One Fatty thread in Uk fat bikes forum.

    The Truvativ Hussefelt 2.2 Chainset - Howitzer, 170mm 22.32 is better.

    hbourj - I think that I will find out myself tomorrow. I have a 24-36-bash Race Face. I think that the Race Face crank may move the chainline out a little bit more, we'll see if it is enough. If not, I'll be buyin' some new chainrings, I guess!

    edit - I'm not optimistic that it will fit...

    I used 32mm, so 1 1/4. I wouldn't want to go much bigger than that because it will make the rim too fragile.

    Video is uploading now. It will be here.

    Thanks, Shaggy. Still waiting for my Fatty to arrive; Fedex says delivery tomorrow, but we'll see since we have some snow.

    That was also the first time I saw the production bike. I really like the orange decals.

    nice video, shaggy. I am also waiting on Fedex. It seems mine has left Oregon on Wednesday, but hasn't arrived anywhere else yet. It was supposed to be here yesterday.

    I really don't like the on-one outrageous orange decals. But I seem to be in the minority.

    I want beautiful badass boring black decals like in the pre-production photos!

    Ugh, not good. The status on mine is the same, and its still saying 12/22 (Saturday) for the delivery date.

    We got a little bit of snow, too...

    Yah. I'm on the fence. I caved and have orange tape for my rims after drilling. But usually black is the new black.

    As far as the decals; are they stickers (on top of the paint) or are they under clear coat?

    Yah! Double check the headset. Mine started to knock (lose) after a solid ride with plenty of chunk. Otherwise rail it!

    Check the BB too. One of the UK guys is reporting a problem after 3 rides. It could, of course, be something else but why take the chance?

    WOOOOOO HOOOOOO!!! Mine Just arrived!

    Fedex delivered it today, even after they updated the expected delivery date on their website late last night to Dec 26. So they made my day!

    Shaggyjohn has done very educational drilling video. With these instruction perhaps my kind of home mechanic dare also to drill rims.. Did you measure weight loss ?

    Stupidly I didn't write down the weights but it saved about 200g per rim.
