    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.

    Just joined the Fat Bike community.

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