    7 psi. Pinch flat was a freak. Going slow climbing and somehow pinched!? Never while I'm going fast downhill.

    Here are my latest additions. 203 and 180 Icetech rotors and XO shifters. I also set the front tire up ghetto tubeless, I will do the back once I feel better. I can't believe how much bigger the 203 front rotor looks, it's huge!

    Are there any details on the modifications performed to fit this rack to the Fatboy? I just got a Fatboy and really like the Salsa racks, also Cogburn uses them on their bikes frequently. Anyone know where the video is of this specific bike is and if it provides any specifics? Thanks.

    Candy 3's and FSA SL-K cage. Bike is new (2015).

    Plotting the lightest (and reliable too) tubeless setup.

    Oh yeah! Swapped out POS Sunrace cassette. Shifted like crap. Got the SRAM PG-1070. Much better.

    Hey Jayisbikes!

    It looks like you are using the Ethirteen Cranks that come stock on the Fatboy expert. Is this the case? Also, did you have to add any spacers between the bottom bracket and the crank arms? I have a Fatboy Expert frameset that I will be building as a singlespeed and would love to use an Eccentric Bottom Bracket but would rather not spend $160 to find out that it does not fit properly. Thanks!

    Not sure if my stuff can be considered accessories or upgrades. Probably both.

    It's a 2015 Fatboy "Expert." Owned for about one month now. My intention was to buy a complete bike and fix what needed fixing. I have an endurance race next month and needed to upgrade from a Pugsley.

    Best single upgrade - ghetto split tube. Q-Tube, 4oz. of Orange. Easy, fast, reliable, no loss of pressure or sealant. I can hear the Orange swish around so I know I'm good. When temps drop (Northeast U.S.) I'll shoot some Subzero Orange. Cut the excess tube with a X-Acto knife.



    Next up - pedals. Have used Egg Beaters for many years. I know people complain about Crank Brothers but in the 3 level you get a solid product. Got the Candy's for a bit more platform. Flats weren't a consideration.



    SRAM GPS Mount - Simple idea. Great view of Garmin. Not getting the feel of looking down.



    Stickers and Tape - VeloInk and electrical tape to prevent scratching. Had to get creative with placement.



    FSA - SLK cage. Holds a bottle well. Not heavy.



    EASTON EC70's. The 90's were nicer but not breaking the bank for grams. Cut about 1/2" off each side.




    THOMSON Elite, Zefal Saddle Bag. Stock seat post was crap. Bag is my Camelbak. Stock saddle is a keeper.



    ESI Extra Chunky - Insurance for a rigid fork. Cut, but cut longish. More hand options.



    Dirt - This bike will see everything. I don't need to explain.



    What you don't see - SRAM PG1070 10-Speed Cassette - the original was crap.

    Lastly, a little customization. The original cap wasn't anything great.



    What I want - Maybe a longer stem, Thomson or ENVE. A set of Schwalbe Jumbo Jims. That would be awesome on dirt. Maybe XT brakes. No rush. I'm lucky to have what I have. Love the bike. Feels like a 29er.

    Thanks for reading!

    Your bike looks great!

    A word of advice on the SRAM Garmin mount. I had one on my Fatboy and I crashed. The forward SRAM mount took the brunt of the impact snapping the mount in half and shearing off the mouting tabs of my Garmin Edge 510 in the process. I would NOT recommend that mount for a mountain/fatbike (if you're riding technical descents, etc.). I now have to send the unit into Garmin for a repair.

    Thanks pspycho.

    My riding isn't very technical. No rocks here.

    That's an "old" Garmin 200 so I'm not heavily invested.

    I've seen guys run the mount backwards but that would block the skull and I'd have to tilt my head a bit.

    Garmin has good customer service. Last time I smashed my 305 and they sent me a refurb no questions asked. I told them it was my fault and they didn't care. There was no charge.

    Love my FATBOY.

    How do you like the Nextie Black Eagles 65 mm rim? They definitely are nice and light. How long have you had them? Durable?

    Has anyone tried the Surly nice rack on their fat boy? I'm looking at getting a rear rack pretty soon and the surly has the most load carrying capacity which is what I'm looking for. The Salsas look nice as do the OMM but I want to hear about everyone's experience with these racks or any others.

    Has anyone found/installed an AngleSet for the Fatboy? 70.5* didn't really bother me much in the winter but now that it's dirt season I'm finding myself wishing I had a little more rake. Would one of these fit?

    Looks like the minimum head tube size is 44mm. Don't think they make one for 1 1/8--1 1/2" tapered. Different length fork or different size tires or wheels front and rear might help, or Bluto can be 80, 100, or 120mm travel.

    Hmm, that's a bummer. I actually already have a 100mm Bluto, but would really like a wee more slack.

    a 120 Bluto slackens it out to roughly 68.5 degrees.
    If you have enough steertube you could do like they did on the Stumpjumper 650b and add a spacer on the bottom of the headtube. 20mm=roughly 1 degree.
