    Single speed frames

    Started thiking about what I want to build next year and realized I really need (want) fatbike. Moonlander would be my first choice (already have monkey and 1x1 and in general I am a sucker for anything surly). However - havening recently built On-One Pompetamine I started to like On-One frames as well. As far as I can tell - Fatty cannot be setup as single speed without singleator, etc.
    So what other frames out there are available for single speed fatbike built (i.e. horizontal or semi horizontal drop outs, EBB, etc)?

    So far I only see Moonlander as an option (want to go as fat as I can - i.e 4.8 tires)

    Salsa Mukluk (not sure on max tyre size)

    9:Zero:7 make a slider frame but it's offset and only accepts 4.0" tyres

    or for something a bit unique have a look at Salamandre Cycles which can run up to 5.0" tyres and has a cool split shell EBB.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Nice - thank you! I was pretty set on Moonlander but it is good to see other options. If I was just building one - Moonlander but my wife wants one as well and two Moonlanders will get pricey! So expanding my horizons.

    ok, I really dig 907. In fact - i saw it in spring when i was buying my SUP in one of the local shops. Guy whom i was delaing with was riding it all last winter on local trails. Will keep it as an option (although sliding drop outs always freaked me out for some reasons)

    Problem is - she likes Moonlander a lot She test rode it and that's the bike she wants.
    I have a long time to think and sort it all out - my budget for this year is spent and overspent and overspent again. So plan is work hard for nice bonus next fall and build them up for 2014-2015 winter.
