    Nice...

    I just ordered a large frame for my 11 year old. He's right on the edge of looking funny on his medium.
    We spoke about it and he wants it to be the same green as my bike but he also wants orange on it.
    We settled on having the frame, fork and Rolling Darryls powder coated Granny Smith Apple and getting orange Hope hubs, spoke nipples and other assorted ano bits.
    I warned him that he had better really like this because once I have the rims coated and lace the wheels up, that's kinda it. I'll even want to do his XL frame green when he outgrows the L in a few years (or sooner).
    I'll post pics of the build as it happens.

    Yep... He's currently on a medium and he has lots of seatpost showing. He rode my dad's large and he looked completely natural on it.

    I laced them up myself. It's Velocity Duallys (45mm), the front hub is 907 135 with rear brake spacing, the rear hub is Bike Hub Store 190mm. I used Sapim Race spokes.
    He loves em. I have the same rims laced to Hope Pro4's on my bike.
    He's running WTB Rangers, I have Chupacabras.

    907 135mm Slider frame build.

    A new (to me) Pre-loved 907 135mm rear axle, offset slider frame.

    I have built this bike with the beach in mind.

    Rigid, with Alfine 8 rear and extensive (and extended) mudguards.

    Love it

    That bike reminds me of the Gary Fisher Rig I once had. Might have to spring for that.

    I mean, I took them both from the drive side, and I chose background colors that were explicitly complementary (purple-yellow), so I thought I was OK. I mean, these are mountain bikes. I though obsessive rules were for roadies.

    I guess I blew it by not being in front of a white garage door? I should have taken them on the trail?

    I'm gonna fix these "rules". I need to find a model to pose with a fat bike a la Tommysee. That guy may have made crappy bikes but his beach pics were pretty creative.

    When I lived in Alaska there was an ice cream shop that made a great summer drink called the raspberry-lime rickey. I give you the RLR.

    The reach on most modern MTB are way too long for me. So I got the size that fits better cockpit wise, which leaves something to be desired in the seatpost and steerer tube. IF , and I am not convinced, I can get enough floatation from the 4.8" tires I'll order a Carver O'Beast but I am not going to waste money until I find there is some hope I won't get stuck every five feet in snow.

    How much snow are we talking about here? Have you ever ridden in snow before? These bikes don't magically float over a foot of powder like Bikes Direct would lead you to believe. Once the snow gets deep, we all unite and snowshoe a trail.

    We have groomed Fat Bike trails here. Very nice but unlike most people, light people, I can't ride them. A packed snowshoe trail I can ride but I could probably do that on my normal mountain bike. My current 9zero7 135mm can only handle 4.6" tires and it just is not enough to ride the groomed trails. I sink into a stop every 20ft. If I climb and veer off the trail an inch I am stopped and pushing up the climb to get re-started. Just not fun. I am told that the extra width of a 197mm rear end makes all the difference. Well it was worth finding out with 9zero7's close-out of the purple people eaters. I know that the air increases exponentially but still can't believe it will make a difference. But will see soon!

    I yoyo between 235 and 265. I had a 190/135 907 and now a 197/150 907. I rode both bikes on packed trails on Bud and Lou on Clownshoes. I made all the climbs and probably on a good day never put a foot down.

    What tires? What pressure? Rider weight? Environmental conditions?

    I'm the opposite of Nyrr, I see food and it disappears and nothing happens till the next day... Weight of 160-165 and beer does nothing, it's a wives tale that it causes weight gain. :/ Tire size and low pressure to get some squish to make a larger foot print makes a day and night difference. Mushy snow due to warm temps can wreck a ride too. Ive been grooming 200 miles of trails for 20 years and the trails work up nicely.
    With mid winter conditions there will be no rut left by a fatbike on the groomed trail. It's almost like firm dirt. With a 4.6 @ low psi you should be able to ride a properly groomed trail, lest it's ghetto groomed.

    Obviously a lot of it comes down to what you weigh... but a few points...

    if just about anyone strays off a packed trail... they're going to sink in... hold your line. I went over the bars a couple times when i strayed from the packed trail...oops haha

    if you're riding fat on the snow and sinking in... just keep lowering air pressure. I rode 4.0's at 180 lbs last year and when the trails were soft i aired down till my sidewalls were crinkling like a funny car tire... it looked like i was riding a flat tire but i never pinch flatted and i was able to ride trails that had been groomed by snowmobiles.

    and someone pour me a raspberry-lime rickey that sounds delicious

    Fresh powder groomed once-over can still be impossible to ride. It needs to settle or get more weight on it usually. You can still sink down in the stuff 6-12" easily and it's like trying to ride through mashed potatoes.

    There can be a huge difference between "packed" and "groomed".

    The 907 is a great bike, the Whiteout aluminum is every bit as capable as a Moonlander while also being stiffer and lighter, but it's definitely been surpassed in tire capacity by a few other brands.

    If you're that heavy (like me, I'm 255+), and really want to push your limits, then maybe a Blackborow or Pole, with Vee Snowshoe 2xls is in order?

    I am 260 and 6'2". Our trails are groomed but not packed hard at all. I have not tried "till my sidewalls were crinkling like a funny car tires". Other people seem to be able to ride normally but not me. I can ride the snowshoe packed trails just fine and I really prefer riding winding single track. But there is not much of it compared to the groomed trails. Well there is a lot more volume to the 4.8" over the 4.6" even tho there is only a 1/4" difference so I'll see. I'll try lowering the air pressure to the crinkling point I have 100mm rims and I bought a XXL for the front but destroyed it trying to get it on. The Maxxis Collossus worked fine but the Vee would not get over the rim walls. If this experiment is positive I'll get a Carver O'Beast mega which will handle 5" tires but I don't want to waste money on a custom until I know it might work. Most modern bikes have way too long a cockpit for me.

    I hope this will work. I need to move in the winter and I really don't like skiing.
    Cheers

    No love.

    Whoever installed the headset didn't shim it so the top cover rubbed on the bearing cup. Fixed using those alloy wafers from cassette lockrings, 5 of them.
    Got a Borealis wheelset, front hub's 15mm, fork's qr. Bought an adaptor from CRC, paid for express, delayed twice, not redirected. Finally get it, but the adaptor's 100mm wide, not 135 of course. My fault, no width mentioned on website. Realized that the fork is rear-hub-spaced anyways, so could not have used that front hub= new wheel build. Rear QR also from CRC. Wrong length was sent. May be for 170mm, but no threads outside the frame for the locknut on my 190. Haven't heard from them about that one. Tried Michelin ultralight tubes, blew them up. New Veerubber tubes. Then my 4.7 Bulldozer tire blew off the rim, turns out the kevlar bead had frayed and finally snapped. Lose my shtick, bought a pair of Ground Controls.

    Never had this much trouble just getting a bike on its wheels. Nothing that I bought specifically for this build worked out the first time.
    Hate this bike right now.

    I think that this is a problem with an industry out of control. No standards and poor documentation. Don't think it is unique to "this bike".

    These require careful research as to compatible components, unfortunately. There are 7500 axle lengths these days which is ludicrous. The other thing is with a QR skewer, if no length is mentioned, it's 100/135, most likely. Make sure that what you are looking at states it's specific size/ length. It can be a whore of a bytch to get things together without knowing specs of what you have. As for the tire, well, that's a manufacturing defect.

    907 answers can be found at Fatbikes.com home of the 9:ZERO:7 fat bike and fat bike accessories They are glad to help peeps find the info and bits that are compatible with the various model years of the 907's.

    Bottom line is that we all have to do our due diligence in selecting parts for a fatty cause they are all "wildcat" bikes.

    907's web sites are terrible when it comes to information.

    I can't count the number of things that I needed to research from other locations or contact them directly about.

    I mean, look here and see what's missing:

    - No reach measurement?
    - No wheelbase measurement?
    - What rotor sizes are supported on the frame and fork?
    - Is the bottom bracket threaded or press fit?
    - What travel of suspension fork is supported?

    There's probably more, but yeah...they could definitely add more useful detail and drop the stupid 'Cirque de Soleil dancer' bull-honky.

    I'll check, my eyes don't see those little tiny arrows too well these days.

    I think there are so many people in the US that just go to a dealer and buy whatever they suggest that the manufacturers have gotten away with not describing their products at all except for marketing fluff. You can't have unhappy customers if you never promised anything about the bike, eh?

    So it can be a real problem trying to figure out what someone is selling for aftermarket people like us. Not to mention understanding the mine field of proprietary systems.

    I am old enough to remember a day, for road bikes, where for decades the major manufacturers all made compatible parts. For this retro-grouch I would choose value and compatibility over the truely minor improvements every company claims to justify another proprietary part.

    There's a lotta truth in that statement! Many fatbikers are tinkerers (Hmm, is that a word?) that are very picky about parts and pieces.
    Seeing through the hype can be daunting tho'.

    I did 584 miles in the Adirondacks setup like this. Fat tires not technically needed, the Knards roll well enough. I'd build up a 29+ wheelset next time.

    I have a 907 White out and I need some help. I am not much of a bike mechanic. Could someone confirm the proper cranks to buy? I want to buy Race Face Next SL's. I think I need to buy the 170/ 190mm size. Just need confirmation before I buy the wrong crank. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Ok ok, I'll go first....

    So, I was out last weekend with a couple of friends for a little 35 miler around East Lothian. We started off in the afternoon along the beach from Gullane to North Berwick, then after ice cream and pizza we headed inland for the next few hours arriving back to Gullane in the Dark at 2230. Only got a couple of shots as we were too busy shootin' the breeze.

    Smurfy climbin' off the beach:

    See?? I KNEW they were going to change it up when they were selling the Whiteout frames so cheap.
    ok... I'll upgrade when my son needs an XL. He can have mine and I'll grab a Tundra.

    Snowshoe 2XL XXL

    Whiteout 197 AL and the Snowshoe 2XL. I'm stubborn and wanted to see for myself. Nope doesn't fit in the rear but look how much bigger it is than the Maxxis Colossus 4.8.

    Looks good! How is the clearance on the front fork? I'm running 4.8 JJs on the same frame/fork combo. Are you planning on running the 2XL in snow?

    Plenty of room on the front fork, which is too bad it doesn't clear on the back because it would be an awesome combo. Yes, snow due next Sat. It is close on the back. Plenty of room on the sidewalls but the knobs hit on the top.

    I rode a few fat bikes today while I was at the shop bleeding my mtb rear brake. I rode the Cannondale Fat Cadd, the Norco Ithiqua and the Whiteout in Al and Carbon. I was in no way interested in a new fat bike as I have been happy with my Moonlander. The Cannondale was nice with the lefty, the Norco was nice as well, but the 907's were mind blowingly good. I think I may buy a frame set and some hubs and convert the other parts over. Now to decide of Aluminum or carbon. Thinking I will probably do the aluminum because I just LOVE the ball burnished color.

    No, the shops order of them won't come until next week. My fat bikes are for winter only so I think I'd prefer the Whiteout anyhow, especially coming off a Moonlander. I'll think about it though.

    I made a deal with my lbs on a burnished Whiteout frame and a set of 907 hubs. I'm going to use the clown shoes off my moonlander and build the wheels up. I am going to use the moonlander parts , the spare Thomson masterpiece seat post I have in my parts bin and I may use my spare set of carbon bars that I have on it also. I'm not sure if I'll use the bb7's from the surly, or if I'll use the Deore hydraulics I have. I'll build it 2x10 using the surly OD cranks and I just happen to have an xt 11-36 cassette that I could use with it.. I think it'll make a nice bike and I'm excited about it.

    Is the fork on the aluminum Whiteout 135 or 150 mm? They have the hubs coming, I'm just wondering what spacing it uses. Thanks!!

    Anyone know how long of a steerer tube the medium requires? I'm contemplating getting a medium 2016 frame and trying to transfer my Bluto and components over from my small Sturgis. The Sturgis lists the HT as 110mm and 907 as 135mm so it looks like it would need a steerer 1" longer. I'm newish to the bike game so maybe I'm missing something.

    Do they not rub when you ride? I have heard a few say that they fit, but rub therefore have clearance issues. Wonder if there is a difference in clearance across frame batches?

    Haven't rubbed at all so far. To be fair, I've only ridden them for about a week so far - it's a lot of work and is only needed when the snow is super deep and un-packed. I'll let you guys know after I've ridden them for a while.

    It might be a 'three months down the road after the tubeless tires stretch out' thing.

    It might also just be a Clyde thing. Are you a 'man of substance'?

    9:Zero:7 Carbon Whiteout, 9:Zero:7 carbon 100mm rims, Dillinger D5 studded, 3-5psi

    Last year I've ridden my 9:Zero:7 hundreds of snow covered miles with no tire/frame rubbing whatsoever. During non-snow months the wheels are stored at 15psi. This year still no tire/frame rubbing with the same tires. See more images by searching on my log-on name.

He is riding lou tubed w/ CS and still getting slight rubbing during oos climbs, but he is a good sized fella who can put power down.
    My name is Will Ross and I am the Product Manager at 9:ZERO:7 Bikes. I am sorry your buddy is having these issues, but our frames do in fact fit Surly Bud and Lou tires on Clownshoe Rims. When we designed the 9:ZERO:7 Whiteout Carbon frame, we actually sent our manufacturer that exact tire and rim setup to ensure they would work with each other. Many 9:ZERO:7 employees as well as 9:ZERO:7 Dealer employees have run this exact setup with zero issues. I personally rode with this exact setup hundreds of miles last winter as I was training for some ultra endurance races.

    We have done our best to be helpful to this customer and have been working closely with him to reach a solution. We provided him with a replacement tire at no charge and had a mechanic of one of our dealers take a look at his bike/wheel/tire setup. The customer was running the tires using split tube tubeless, which affects how the tire interacts with the rim because it adds too much material around the bead, altering the tire shape. Neither that rim nor that tire are tubeless compatible. Using tire sealant in many brands of tires that aren’t tubeless compatible not only voids the warranty, but it also can cause delamination of the plies of rubber and can deform the tire shape. The customer claims to have ridden the tire as low as 2 psi, which ripples the sidewall of the tire, leading to excessive wear and stretching of the tire. In my opinion, these are the factors that are contributing to the tire rubbing the frame.

    I would recommend using the tires and rims as they are intended to be used. If tubeless is a necessity, then tires designed to be set up tubeless would be the best choice.

    I'll be doing another build shortly. It's supposed to rain Saturday so I'll drop my son's purple frame and fork off at the powder coater along with the white Rolling Darryls I picked up for him. He wants all these parts Granny Smith Apple green like my bike.
    The hubs, nipples, seatpost collar and other assorted parts are going to be orange ano.
    I'll post pics here as it happens.

I personally rode with this exact setup hundreds of miles last winter as I was training for some ultra endurance races.

    We have done our best to be helpful to this customer and have been working closely with him to reach a solution. We provided him with a replacement tire at no charge and had a mechanic of one of our dealers take a look at his bike/wheel/tire setup. The customer was running the tires using split tube tubeless, which affects how the tire interacts with the rim because it adds too much material around the bead, altering the tire shape. Neither that rim nor that tire are tubeless compatible. Using tire sealant in many brands of tires that aren’t tubeless compatible not only voids the warranty, but it also can cause delamination of the plies of rubber and can deform the tire shape. The customer claims to have ridden the tire as low as 2 psi, which ripples the sidewall of the tire, leading to excessive wear and stretching of the tire. In my opinion, these are the factors that are contributing to the tire rubbing the frame.

    I would recommend using the tires and rims as they are intended to be used. If tubeless is a necessity, then tires designed to be set up tubeless would be the best choice.
    Are you really from 9zero7? Wow, this is really disappointing and complete load of crock.
    1) Split tube changing the shape of a tire, due to the extra material around the bead? How so? Maybe microscopically, but anything of significance?

    2) Meager difference in width between tubed and tubeless causes rubbing? I've got news for you--if this is truly the case, your frames don't fit 4.8" tires.

    3) 2 psi in snow tires is what I've regularly run in snow. Sometimes lower!! Statements like this heavily discredits your company as a legitimate fat bike manufacturer.

    4) Plenty of people, myself included, have used Clownshoe rims and Lou and other Surly tires with no issues.

    Guess I won't be buying a 907 anytime soon...

    9:Zero:7 Love

    Remember the title of this tread...

    My experience with the 9:Zero:7 product and customer service has been excellent. Carbon whiteout with their 100mm carbon rims (D5's tubeless) with their hubs. They also built a set of 29 x 45mm wheels that I use in the Summer. These pictures don't capture the big smile on my face!!!

    We are expecting up to 10 inches of snow today through tomorrow, which is awesome to get the 9:Zero:7 out. Problem is, high air temp will be -5f, low of -22f air temps tomorrow.. I will be inside playing with my daughter..

    Same kinda deal here. It's like 18 degrees here currently. Supposed to start snowing tonight and then it's going to go into the 40's tomorrow and rain all weekend. Freaks me out when I can't ride bikes on weekends.
    At least my son and I have Star Wars tickets for Saturday.

    Just a follow up. The purple people eater 197 with the XXL up front and the Colossus back does much better for me than the old 907 135 with 4.6" bulldozers. I have been riding more than any other winter. But I can see that, for me, the Snowshoe XXL makes a big difference. So I am going to have Davis Carver make a Mega O'Beast that will support XXL front and rear.
    Back to riding!

    My long awaited first wheel build will be on this 907!

    So last year i picked up a purple deal frame but never had the chance to build it up. I have been collecting parts here and there. I was hoping to have it built before this fall but closing in on my addition was the priority. Ugh!

    Well, now is the time to finnally get it all together! I'm just waiting on a seatpost, spokes and nipples. I think that's all i need.

    Here is what i have so far:

    Oh yeah, will need to pick up a chain too.

    I sprayed the inside of the frame w/ a lanolin based metal protectant. It's natural, non-toxic and called Fluid Film.

    Nice Ride, by the way Fat Tracks! Have you ridden a Whiteout in comparison to the Tundra?

    Got it together for first FAT Ride!

    Well i finally got it together for my first on trail fatty ride and I Love it!
    9:zero:7 Love-image.jpg

    The single track was awesome! Then i hit some corduroy making sure not to ride on the skiers precious tracks. It was fast! Just like summer riding 'cause the snow is all tamped down. So sweet! The grip and stability is amazing compared to my 2.35 Nevegals.

    If i got off any tamped or groomed trail though i was NOT going anywhere.

    Running D4's at 4 psi in the front and 6.5 in the back.

    Very nice! But why'd you stop at Dillinger 4's? 5's fit in that frame easy.

    Yeah there is plenty of room for the 5's or bigger. I just thought the 4's would be plenty and fit the 65mm rims better.

    maybe i can start saving for some 90's or 100's

    We also get a snow, melt, rain, freeze cycle here and thought the 4's may be better all around. Upstate Ny

    I also weigh only 150

    Of course now i want a second xtra fat wheelset for those other times.

    What is the biggeest tire that fits in the rear of the 907 med.?

    Yep/ I run 4.8 Lou on 100's. Fits fine. 4.8 Knard is bigger and fits fine also. If you only weigh 150, you're right, the 4's are probably plenty.

    Damn... Where upstate are you? We have nothing on Long Island. Raining right now.

    Is the Knard the biggest option that will fit the rear? Id like to run the 2xl in the front if the difference between F/R does not rake it out too much. You know for soft go anywhere adventure riding.

    I am South of Syracuse in the hills. About 1500' ASL. Excellent singletrack around here!

    I'm sure they do. I know the 2XL does not fit the rear though.

    The Knard on a Clownshoe when tubeless gets a little close but it fits perfectly.
    I can't imagine running a Knard with a 2XL though. The Knard is a great dirt and sand tire. Not really a fantastic snow tire. I'd run Lou.

    I had a perfect ride a few weeks ago in about 8-9" of powder.
    We have a foot of wet, heavy, icy crap falling right now. I'll try to ride it tomorrow afternoon or Saturday. Not having high hopes though.
    Probably have to ride the beach.

    Just wanted to throw some love 9:ZERO:7's way! I have a set of CSs laced to 9:ZERO:7 hubs that I got a few years back, and to my dismay I blew up the rear hub the other day. I called my closest 9:ZERO:7 dealer to see how to proceed, and within hours I'd gotten an email from HQ in AK that asked for shipping info, which was shortly followed by notification that the replacement parts were being sent out foc.
    I was back out on the snow with minimal down time!
    Just another example of the awesome customer service those fellas in AK provide.

    I haven't touched my fat whip but a couple times this winter. it's shod with dunders and flows, and I don't want to ride them outside the white stuff.
    anybody rocking some 29+ on the aluminum whiteout in the offseason?
    I may have to get to some 2 wheel consolidating.

    Chupacabras and WTB Rangers seat up and stay on perfectly. Vittoria Bombolonis do not. Maybe go with a WTB Scraper or Stan's Hugo. It's too bad because I really like Velocity.
    I also really like running the 29+ rear wheel with my fat front wheel. It works really well.

    In the summer I've been running 29x3's: Easton ARC 45's with a WTB Ranger on the front (not in this picture) and a Maxxis Chronicle on the rear. My frame is a carbon Whiteout. I'm very happy with the performance.

    Looks the arc 40's might be the bees knees for me here.
    I definitely don't want to go too wide.

    Or I'm overthinking it and should just pickup a set of summer tires and sell the surly altogether.

    I just put a set of Big Fat Larrys on my bike for the first time ever and was amazed how fast it rolls on pavement and beach sand. I even rode it on singletrack last weekend and was pretty amazed how well it worked. It wasn't the sliding, out of control death fest I was expecting.

    My first 907, my first fatty. Loving it, more for the dirt than snow.

    the 907 is also considerably heavier than it's predecessor, but the price was right.
    I'm really just suffering from too much stuff this winter. as in- I have too many things.

    Never check the sharpness of your pocket knife that closely to your fat tires!!
    Suffering from too much *cough* stuff, or the CC payments??
    I'm curious as to the weight issue, my 2014 was surprisingly light. I had the RD/Hope wheels on it prior to the Mayor.


    On another note, the 2014 will be going back together in the near future with the original RD's and a new fork. Will be kewl to have two functional fatties to play with!

    no cc payments for me, thankfully.
    literally too much stuff: 6 of my bicycles 2 of hers, 1 of the kid's, one Yamaha scooter, one dirt bike and a cafe project I intend to start working on this spring.
    ideally I'd trim down to a full squish, a cx/gravel rig with a set of decent road wheels and the 9z7 with the 80mm hoops and a set of 29+ wheels.
    (at least thats where my head is at right now)

    as far as weight, the 9z7 replaced a chiner carbon fat frame that I cracked. that build with the fan's was just under 27lbs. the 9z7 with the beists is over 30, maybe over 31, I forget.
    I like the 9z7 enough to not worry about it, I think I still need a fat bike for winter in New England despite 1 snow ride this season.

    I can't get enough of riding fat these days. Between the Mayor, Sarge and soon the '14 9z7 will be back on the prowl. 9z7 was just south of 27 #'s sportin Bud/Lou with Surly Lite toobz. Looking forward to getting the 9z7 out for some rides again.

    Got the 907 frame today. Holy hell is it burly! I have a Surly ICT and I did a double take when I saw the welds and the beefiness of the tubing! The polished finish is freakin' gorgeous!

    Also, my silver Clownshoe wheels from my ICT look pretty sick against the polished frame

    Stay tuned

    Yes. The Lynx. I don't know any details about it. I'm guessing it is the updated Tundra geo in carbon format.

    Today's ride, nice to have snow again! Love my 9:zero:7, can't wait for details on the new carbon Lynx. My guess is it's a carbon version of the Tundra. May be time to upgrade from my 2013.

    Wouldn't a carbon Tundra still just be a Tundra? Since we're seeing pictures of the guys racing on it - Will Ross raced it in the Birkie - I'm guessing it's an updated version of the longer wheelbase race bike. I think he usually races a carbon Whiteout? Looking at pics, it also looks like the head angle is quite slack, but maybe that's just the camera angles.

    Tundra is shorter chain stays, shorter front stack, and internal dropper routing.

    Hmmmm, i built my wheelset in my frame. The wheels are centered to the frame so i would never know if the frame was out. Ha Ha

    I'll have a look see.

    Good luck w the frame!

    Very interesting....

    Tell me more. Pic?

    I'm thinking a 27.5+ on the fatty as it is about the same diameter as 26x4.0

    The dual between my full squish and 907 fatty is on for year round riding!

    So much better than I expected!

    Sunday was my first ride on the fatty where there was no wintry mix or tons of water and mud. (Which is fine) We went to a place where it is usually fairly dry as it is rocky and well drained.

    I was expecting my bike to be a little slower and sloppy compared to my skinny full squish 26'r. Wow! Was I wrong!

    My 9:zero:7 rocks! Where i'd be fighting to hold a line on the skinny, the fatty just consumed it all! This thing rolls fast! So much fun!

    9:zero:7 Love-img_2951.jpg

    I went w 65mm nexties and JJ LS 4.0 ' for summer riding cause i thought a fatty would be, well... slow and heavy but it is NOT!

    I was running 6 psi in front and 8 rear. Gonna try 7 and 9 cause i was getting a few rim strikes and the front tire folded on me twice when i really leaned it over hard. But this rails! Long chainstays? No problem yet.

    Now i'm thinking...bluto. But really full rigid was just fine on the rocks and roots too, so we'll see. But maybe sell all my bikes except the Whiteout and...

    C'mon 9:zero7! Where is the full squish fatty, already?

    Entered the 9:Zero:7 in a local race...Not too many fat bikes mostly full susp MTB but I managed to survive. Bike held up well except for the gash in my rear JJ sidewall - had to reload the Stan's just prior to the race!! It was fun to ride a bike I put together!

    Good job on the race, Volks. The shop I hang with invited me to race in their annual race. Said there's going to be a fat bike class. I was in until I saw that the entry fee is 75 bucks. I can ride slow for free.

    This might sound ridiculous but if you were to cut the knobs off the tread a bit and shortened em, is there Any chance of fitting the 2XL in the rear on a Large 9zero7 whiteout...? I have one in the front already and im blown away the difference it makes in control.

    Pretty sure that is called the Apache... a deknobbed 2XL isn't going to give you any control, certainly not more than a Lou.

    Race is done and the results are in! I did 30/38, but I have a reason for doing poorly.

    I rode with Hannah Smage the whole time

    Was two laps of singletrack with 1000 feet of climbing each lap.

    If I don't run into one of my heroes I will do better next time.

    It would probably help to specify what model and year, what crankset, what spacers and what ring...just saying...

    yes, of course year 2016 whiteout alu, cranks raceface, direct mount, have no idea about spacers - don't really care what brand an oval ring will be (all good)

    I run a 28T oval, I don't see why a 30T wouldn't work. If the fit is tight, flip it so that the ring is offset to the outside.

    that was initial reaction... if now chainring 32t works why the hell 30t oval wouldn't- i'll try myself this time, eventually will prepare 3mm spacer
    are you guys use regular oval or for boosts? thanks a lot for all information

    Regular oval. They have some offset, usually you put it so the ring is offset towards the chainstay. You can also offset outwards to install a bigger ring. Hope that helps.

    What I'd like to know is why 907 is no longer selling the Tundra frameset or complete, Whiteout Carbon frameset or complete, and Whiteout AL complete.

    All they have on the website is Whiteout AL framesets and used bikes?

    I hope they aren't going under!

    Me too! I love my Whiteout!

    The Slider is mia too. I have seen a new 907bikes website. Are they moving their address??

    The 907bikes website has a new carbon Lynx in the que. Probably a carbon version of the Tundra me guesses.

    This is a cool build thanks for sharing the link. I also like the 24" that someone else built a while back Will you add handles at the RD wheels to propel them from the user or is it push from behind?

    This one will be pushed from behind. I'll be building another one that I'll be adding hoop handles or whatever they're called so it can be self propelled.

    Took the bike to Scotland for a sandy weekend away! Rode lots of beach, it even managed to throw me over the bars.... Still on the winter Dillinger 5's, but they are so good I am not sure I will bother swapping back to Jumbo Jims.
