    I don't see any spacers for the spindle. Especially since that looks like the 190 spindle

    This is as much my latest fat bike build as it is my latest purchase.

    With limited garage space, and a wife who doesn't want to even lift her road bike on to ceiling hooks--so she surely wasn't going to lift a fatty up there--I started looking at ceiling to floor 2-bike stands. And they come in 2 options: stupid expensive and nice, or stupid cheap and fragile.

    So a trip to Home Depot and about $25 got me a 4x4, a couple of bike hangers ($5 each & 50 lb limit), and 4 lag screws. And about an hour later later this fellow was bolted up and ready to load:

    Those hooks look thin, but they're holding very sturdy, and I'm banking on that 50 lb limit.

    Yeah, it's a little heavy getting the loaded lurch up to the 7 ft point, but worth it for the garage space.

    Stainless Steel Shoe Spikes

    When searching for new shoe spikes, I initially only found either the blunt aluminum or plastic types. I finally found some high quality spikes at Horstengineering.com which cost the same as the Al or plastic types. They make stainless and Ti spikes with various lengths and profiles. I bought the stainless mini (13.3mm) ice and snow spikes. They work great!

    The little zip bag over the boots are the spacers.

    Had to add the beer cap holder stem cap to my Fattie. Incredibly faster and more nimble with this on it.

    Sweet! Inspiration for me. I have two new fatties showing up soon for me and the wife. I'm going to have to do something along these lines.

    Kind-of purchase: my bike frame was replaced under warranty. As a bonus - new fork to match new color scheme (was 2015 frame, now 2016/2017). Its Stevens Mobster with few upgrades (wider rims/tires, 1x conversion, dropper post).

    New frame seems to have alot of clearance too (4.8 JJ on 100mm rims):

    Nice! I like that color scheme. Did you do the parts swap or did the shop do it? Idle curiosity, also where did it fail?

    Cheers.

    Swap done by shop.
    It failed on chain tube/rear leg, near BB, about 1cm to it. I found the crack after seeing photos of failures on german forums. On new frame they added additional tube near/parallel BB - most frames generally have it, so that place is now secured I hope. Generally I like Mobster - no much bikes out there have 150/197 thru-axle hubs by default and are in <1300 eur msrp range.

    Does a fresh powder coat job on the frame count as a purchase? Decided to black out the fattie.
