    Well, I got them from a user here. See the last post in this thread. Other than the fact my frame came with no provisions for mounting them, they were great!

    Best part of being an adult: doing what ever i want when i want to.... well whatever the wife allows...

    as for color of rim tape it is actually surly red but the color of the bulbs and the reflection off the table gave it the orange glow....

    Sorry. I'm brand new to (not) posting photos. It is taking me a while to get past the "clime to the back of the attic to turn on the front porch light" sort of logic to posting photos on the internet.

    It is a Terrain Destroyer with a Nexus(?) 8 speed IGH. I got it at discount because it was used as a prototype for an electric motor. It came with a cable front brake. I took it out for my first run yesterday and I swear I would have gotten fewer looks and interest if I had been driving a Lamborgini. Single ladies take note: a fat bike is a guy magnet.

    Funny that the bike is called a Terrain Destroyer. If there is any bike on the market that does not destroy terrain then this is it.

    Brooks

    B17 Narrow Imperial - brown. I had a very cool swift and it killed the man bits. but for some reason the B17 narrow is pure butt candy (even without the padded shorts!)
    My bike is heavier than yours - it does not have Carbon or Titanium parts - I love it!

    Fat folks with new parts -

    I am in the predicament where I got into the Fat and love it.

    But I purchased the pugs non offset 135 fork - made my wheel work - and now I am thinking that I really should have spent 10 more bucks and got the Enabler.

    How long should I let it ride before I decide that it is not quite right? I have a fat front 29er and believe that the shorter A-C distance might be putting too much weight on the front wheel.

    Am I thinking too much? I have only been on 4 long rides with it - and many short block rides with kids.

    Not sure which frame you have, but it's probably designed with a particular A-C spec in mind. That size fork will probably feel the best.

    are those the uma2 rims from fatback, and if so, did you polish them additionally to their natural finish? If so, what how.

    Those are the Uma II's, 70mm and they have not been polished by me. They ran out of the black ones and offered silver instead. It happened to be my first color choice.

    It's Ano and yes i enquired if they could do special colors, answer yes the one caveat for my case is i wanted it to match the CK mango color for my rear hub which Paul cannot guarantee so a bit of a gamble.

    If they are not cleared over then most likely a lill heat from say a hair dryer will soften them for removal.

    Good job!

    Powder coated Kawasaki Green, spokes are DT Champion powder coated Glacier White from
    spokelab.com They offer several colors and have some that look like anodized. Sample spokes available for 99 cents.

    Spokelab did not do the rims.I was fortunate to find a rare pair done by Surly. Spokelab may be able to do rims for you but with shipping back and forth you would probably come out ahead finding a local Powder Coater to do them for you. I just ordered some Kawasaki Green spokes for another project.

    Not there yet.... Gotta wait a while for $$ and my friend to get home cuz he's got the tools and know how to build it. HD's are going on the front and back. I don't anticipate hazing to remove any cogs. It's a 1x9. The race face bb came with plenty of spacers so I'm not worried about having to lose a gear. Those are 70mm uma rims. I'll post pics and build/ride reports when done.

    How do you reckon the X2 race will pull a fatty up ?

    Im a massive fan and have both X2 pro and X2 race but thinking they will be hard pushed to lock a fat wheel up.

    Would love to fit sub 300g X2 race to my Muk.

    Keep us posted, i am 100% a Hope brake man for the last 5 sets, but theres lighter/better to be had than the current offerings.The new XT/XTR are game changing brakes and about time Shimano stepped up ! Would love to keep my X2 PRO or RACE even with bigger rotors..... looking forward to hearing you review

    I had a go on a set of 2012 XT's and i was super surprised.... probably the best bang for buck brakes available at the moment, the modulation and stopping power was awesome. I dont own a set, im 100% hopes but im very tempted.....

    I have multiple hyd. Set ups and normally run avid. On my fat bike I run a Hayes gram on the front and the new xt on the the back since I'm running an alfine 11 with center lock. I really like the gram up front, but the xt is also a great unit also.... The gram is dang light though.......

    I have some centerlock wheels that I switch between bikes using BB 7's and Stroker Grams with no issues.
    I agree on the grams but I wish it had a little more rotor clearance. Still the weight / dollar equation is very good for them.
