    Oh yes, we will make sure they are oriented correctly. When I mounted my Chupas on my Arc 40's for my 29+ bike, my goodness did those rim stickers annoy me, the normal 'label to valve' alignment meant one of the Arc's was upside down for the photos I had to take the tyres off to get the wheels rebuilt, so I re-aligned when I put them back!

    Those are sweet. How do you like the Chups on those rims?
    I currently have Chupacabras on Velocity Duallys wich are 45mm. I just bought a Krampus frameset so I was going to get the Arcs in 40mm for that.

    Love the Chupas, very pressure critical though, I find... a couple of PSI too much and they go rock hard, too soft and understeer city... a case of finding the pressure sweet spot.

    One thing with the ARC's is that they are a bit tricky to get the tyres aired up, the centre is concave so the beads want to go towards the lowest point of the rim.... once aired up though they are great. Nice and light, mine are laced with D-Light spokes onto i9 hubs.

    NOOOOOO! I think I just found a crack across the front of the seat tube on my green 907.

    I'm about 3 1/2 weeks away from traveling and taking the bike. Gotta act fast. Either get a new frame or finish the Krampus.
    Wife's not gonna like either option.

    907 will probably warranty it and give you a new frame, which the wife shouldn't mind

    That is really confusing then. That post must flex a lot to crack your frame. Hope 907 warranties it for you even though you painted it. I know Surly warranties repainted frames.

    Seems like they're not interested in warranting this. They did offer me a frame at a rock bottom price. What else can I do? Guess I gotta take it.

    Have you thought about having it repaired?

    Out of curiosity do you mind telling me what price they quoted you?

    I'd be interested in buying it for cheap for the fork/maybe trying to weld it myself if you'd be down to sell it.

    I actually have a guy that I was going to show it to to see if it could be welded. Based on what he says, it might become wall art. Umm... I guess maybe I could let it go cheap, only catch is 907 quoted me 250 for a frame only so I would need the fork. They'll sell me a frameset for 499 just like anyone else.

    Ok. Got it welded. He did a great job. Put it all back together. Replaced the setback post with a straight post and the 80mm stem with a 90. With my weight moved a little forward it shouldn't happen again.
    I'll get it re coated after I finish my Krampus. Just need a cassette and brakes.

    Rode it this past weekend. No new breakage. Weld held and the slightly forward riding position is working well.

    Mine broke at the same place, as well as the seat stays; 907 warranties mine, though, but they sent me a purple frame that they were closing out.

    As long as you don't have a setback post on it, it's probably fine. I'm positive that's what caused it. That and me catching air.

    Don't do it with 29+ in the rear either. I had the perfect storm for a crack. 29+ rear wheel, setback post, 80mm stem, jones bars, agressive riding and me weighing 245. I'm actually surprised it didn't crack sooner.

    I run 29+ too

    But I'm 6'1 135lbs so I shouldn't be cracking anything.

    Won't crack the bike but maybe himself at that height and weight. Is that a typo or are you really 135lbs? I thought I was skinny when I was 5'9 135.

    No typo

    I wouldn't mind putting a little more meat on my bones but it seems impossible no matter how hard I try.

    You need to hang with me for a week. I bike and do a badass kickboxing class three times a week and I still weigh about 245. I like food too damn much.

    Hey NYrr - Cringing catching up on your seat post frame crack debacle!! Looks like you solved it ok in the end with the welder! We both have XL frames with a lot of post showing. I Just Went and checked mine and no cracks yet- Whew. But my seat post is bent! I'd like to replace it with a thud buster or a thompson.

    Any recommendations? What size again?

    Thanks!

    Any recommendations? What size again?

    Thanks!

    Wow. Yeah that's bent.
    Like Charge said it's 30.9. I had a Thomson setback post in mine. 410mm long. I switched it to a straight Thomson also 410. I also switched my 80mm stem to a 90.

    lol, had ta go there!!

    On another note, my 907 was heavily involved in my cardiac rehab after having an MI 3 years ago. The 907 has been on mothballs for a year after the Mayor came into the collective. Soon enough, the 907 will be back on the job. Parts are being massed for the resurrection of the bike that was a key player in my recovery.

    Good times!

    Raceface Aeffects are light for the money. Wolftooth ring.

    Throw that seatpost clamp in a field and get a Salsa.

    Carbon bars, Bike Hub Store hubs (they're very light), Niner RDO stem, Supercomp spokes, maybe Surly Other Brother Darryls if you don't want to spring for carbon wheels.

    Great advice thanks! Time to save up for some bsd hubs I think front and rear cost about $220 which is the cost for just the Dt Swiss rear! Remember the part about the clamp 🤛 will have to price the cranks. No hurry on this build.

    I just bought Aeffect cranks for my Krampus. I think they were 113 bucks for the cranks only.

    If you want a 26lb build, you are going to have to spring for Next SL G4 cranks!

    I just put a 29x3.25" Vee Bulldozer on the back of my bike. Looks awesome. I have to get flatter button head bolts for the fender bolt holes. They come CLOSE. I'll post pics first chance I get.

    IF it says "Next" on it it's gotta be from WallyMart!

    With those of you riding with lotsa post showing, how much post is in the frame? I'd say if 3-4" of post overlap is present, you'll be less likely to have cracks appearing where Nyrr did. And no, y'all should be well offa da seat doing any sorta drop action regardless of weight.

    When it comes to play time (catching air) You should have the seat down outta da way so you can actually bend your knees and soak up the kinetics associated with landings to keep your bike from developing arthritis! (frame fatigue) This is gonna happen over a longer lifespan if you have room to keep it loose and take up the impacts. For a bean pole, I've gone through many frames from heavy riding style. The clydes doesn't reference rider weight it references riding style, be it heavy or light.

    Nyrr, those drops from the rooftop are gonna hafta stop! You're killing me... Says Mr. 907!!


    On build weight of my 2014, it came in just under 27 #'s. Gonna get it back on the prowl in the near future with an RSD plastico fork and the original wheels. Just need a couple other parts and to lace up a set of wheels for the Mayor. Parts bin is lookin ripe for the pickin on the resurgence of the 907! Looking forward to getting it out for a rip down some singletrack once again.

    I know EXACTLY where that crack happened. I was doing a banked right turn with a small drop that then continues downhill shortly and then back up. I'm sure my butt hit the seat upon landing on the way down. I've done it four or five times since fixing. Been fine.

    I've got about six inches of post in the frame. I'm convinced it was the setback post that caused this. Put too much load too far back.

    If you never want to see this happen again, get some enduro bearings from RWC (real world cycling) to pop in your cups. The bearings are bigger and work w/out that plastic spacer. Bigger balls last longer too.

    Ok. Got it welded. He did a great job. Put it all back together. Replaced the setback post with a straight post and the 80mm stem with a 90. With my weight moved a little forward it shouldn't happen again.
    I'll get it re coated after I finish my Krampus. Just need a cassette and brakes.
    Bummer on the crack. Good go at fixing it though. Prob worth while in such an accessible spot. How about adding a small gusset?
    Is that a hairline on the top of the top tube that goes down past the corner of the sticker?

    Great! I bet you'll love it. I know you had trouble w pedal strikes but it must have been the fork or whatever strange frame thing you had going on, that 907 warrantied for ya.

    I'm interested to hear your experience w the new setup!

    My Whiteout def sees plenty of rocky trails here in the NE and i rarely get pedal strikes. It's been great! I mean it could always be higher but it could on most bikes and i'm running 4's on 65's. A little racheting helps.

    The highest BB bike i've ridden is a ellsworth id. Up there

    I'm thinking the 490 A/C fork will be what the Dr. ordered. Sure will beat the hell outta the early lowrider fork. One of the mistakes that 907 had in production in '14. Can't say I don't love that bike cause it's been awesome other than incorrect A/C fork outta the gate. Can you say Jeep??

    I was actually a little surprised he just welded it. I thought for sure he would have sleeved or gusseted it but he felt confident the weld was plenty.
    No more cracks. If you mean that black mark, it's just a burn mark from welding.

    Do you have a picture of RSD carbon fork next to the 9:ZERO:7 fork and are the major differences rake and crown height? Just trying to see if the RSD fork is worth the money and if the steerer tube uncut will fit a Whiteout XL!

    With all this talk about bigger ball bearings and seat post insertion I'm beginning to wonder...

    That fork should fit the Whiteout. I still have not found a weight for that carbon fork but it prob is at least a bit lighter. I thought of one but i just dig the matching purple fork too much to save some grams.

    My Whiteout came in at just under 26# but i have a Med. frame.

    That was w/ JJ 4.0 on Nextie 65mm rims w DT hubs.
    DB spokes and alloy nipples.

    Fenders!

    It has been so wet, that the trails have not had a chance to dry out so i have outfitted some big O fenders w custom stays.

    Put a little flair on em too w a heat gun.

    The Nexties are expensive but the tubeless setup is so easy and of course they save plenty of weight in the fatty arena. Super Easy to build too.

    For years when considering carbon for my skinny tired mtb, i was like "meh" but thought it was worth it for the fatty.

    Good point on when to break out the carbon. I ordered HED Big Deal AL at 600 grams. Not sure how they compare to the Nexties in weight and strength. I did just hear a few clydes on the fat bikes page that dented them which never happened to my RDs. It would not be fun to dent a $200 rim

    The are warranted for "snow only" ?? WTF

    When I was wheelbuilding for the fat bike shop, the owner bought himself a set of Heds. He put HuskerDus on em and while the bike was fast and light, he was trail riding and cracked the rim on a rock.
    Oddly, Hed warrantied it and the second time around he put Dillinger5's on them. They lasted fine after that. You just need enough tire volume to protect carbon rims.

    I'm 215#, rolling on a set of HED BAD 80mm over rocks, roots, sand, snow... no dents, no cracks. Bud/Lou studded for snow, JJ's 4.8" for dirt. Bike is setup rigid.

    You can break anything if you try hard enough, I've not had any issues with these wheels, the ease of tubeless is remarkable.

    Thanks I'm in for the HED BadA$$ rims. I have the both sets of the JJs and Surly tires you running !! Not studded though. My used Bud did not want to go tubeless on 82mm RD's even at the LBS!!🤣 it 'Twas more like an oversized donut on the Rolling Daryll.

    My guess is that the cassette will not bite back onto the freehub body. Like it does on most aluminum freehub bodies.

    ^^ That's exactly what it does. Alittle bit of steel machined into the freehub body. Just like american classic does on the fatlab hub and there own hubs.

    I like it!

    Going Big for some Float this winter

    I just picked up some used Clown Shoes. I'm partial to the dt swiss big rides but... Maybe these BHS hubs are just the thing for them? Hmmm

    Any long term reports?

    Oddly, Hed warrantied it and the second time around he put Dillinger5's on them. They lasted fine after that. You just need enough tire volume to protect carbon rims.
    This it what StevetheBikeGuy also told me!! 4.0s no go where as 4.8s are fine. Weird! All in the name of saving 1 pound per wheel!

    No long term reports here yet but others are not complaining about BHS. They look pretty basic to me, not as fancy as the DT's. But news about bad hubs (and BAD rims) travels fast!

    Sweet Clown Shoes- Hhhmmm you have the rims and I have the hubs...

    Fire sale on RSD frame and fork set. Similar to Whiteout pricing. Might be able to get a carbon fork for around $210? I wonder what RSD is coming out with next ?

    I just dropped my BHS hubs off with Steve on Tuesday and he is building my wheels with HED BADs. I grew up in the town his shop is in and did his winter fat bike ride in January with about 60 other people!! I'm about 30 minutes away to the west. Great guy and he used to have a mobile service which is how he started his shop. He is also very fast on the cross bike and supports a lot of local events.

    Thanks! It’s a stock 9:zero:7 135mm hub spaced carbon fork from late 2014. If I remember correctly the fork weighs just over a pound, pretty damn light for fat! Must be made from angel farts and feathers!

    Here's pics of my new Vee Bulldozer. I like this tire so far.
    So I'm starting to think about the 29+ thing. Looks like those 3.25's fit just fine. Is that the largest 29+ available right now? What is the O.D. Of that?

    One thing i don't like about non-fat when i go ride my 26 full squish is the chatter and skinny tires popping side to side often searching for traction. Do the mid fat (plus tires) do that? My 4.0's don't really do that at all except in very challenging circumstances.

    My b+ bikes don't tend to wander like conventional bikes do. At moderate pressures they are awesome. Two b+'s now, a full squish and Sarge. The ride of + is very similar to fat in that the tires are very sensitive to minor changes in psi.

    The 29+ wheels go where I point em very much like fat, only faster. I love em.
    After a few rides, I moved that Bulldozer to the front and put a Chupacabra back on the rear. Works great like that.
    I'll measure the diameter when I get home. It's a little taller than a Chupacabra.

    HED's mounted on BHS 6 bolt hubs - very light pre-tire and apparently no tape required. JJ 4.8's with a patched lite skin for front and snake skin on rear. Quick--> where is the tyre label guy from Scotland to tell me how to line them up B-4 I mount them? Mr. Wiggles looks confused

    P.S. I predict the flying Scotsman will say the rims are mounted bass Ackwards and need to be restrung!!! Not going to happen

    They spin nice loud freehub and all. No complaints and I will try to weigh the built wheels but they do feel very light. Might have to use a SRAM GX 30T NW crank that I already own in the interim but I still think the XL frame with tubeless JJs will be sub 30 lbs!!!

    Drill my frame!

    I'm considering a dropper post for my Whiteout but it is not drilled for internal routing. I'm not very familiar w droppers. I'm considering the Thomson Elite or the Bikeyoke Revive. Prefer the new design of the Revive.

    I am good with tools and my hands but am concerned about stresses that may result from a hole and possible cracks. Anyone drill there Whiteout frame?

    If so, where to drill and why?

    They drilled it when they installed the bottle cage mounts. I'm sure another hole isn't going to make or break the frame.

    Seriously the one way 9:zero:7 could’ve made the purple aluminum frame better would have to be the addition of metal flake into the paint.

    I rode mine last night twelve miles full fat. Haven't done that since last winter. I usually run 29+ rear, fat front.
    Anyway, I had a blast.

    May be purchasing a used 2015 Whiteout. Looking for opinions, what's the largest or best tire combo for this rig?

    Any links to deals on the tires you're suggesting?

    Thanks in advance!

    Conditions: Colorado ST, winter/summer...
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    Im running a snowshoe 2Xl in the front and a D5 in the back of my 15 Whiteout all year round. Took my bike to my LBS 2 weeks ago wanting t'go tubeless. Little did i know the stock 9zero7 rims that come with the frame arent tubeless ready. Anyway...the combo's heavy but its like riding a bulldozer lol. Totally worth it....

    I've run my Whiteout with Bud and Lou on Clownshoes and 4.8 Knard on Clownshoes. All fits mint.
    Currently, it has Bud front and Knard rear on My Other Brother Darryls. Fits fine.
    I've never tried a Snowshoe 2XL.
    I also run 29x3 Chupacabras and Vee Bulldozers on 45mm rims. All fit fine as well.

    If you're looking for a nice set of tubeless ready wheels for cheap hit me up. I have a set of SunRingle Mulefut 80 rims laced to a Salsa 150x15 front hub and Bontrager (Formula) 197x12 hub. They are true, straight, round, and taped for tubeless. I am looking for $350.

    Total noob to the FB scene... are the tires I run dependent on my rim width?

    Wider rims make the tire casing wider, the tread will have a flatter profile, the sidewall will be shorter, and it can be run at lower pressures without squirm.

    The wider casing can cause rub on the chain/frame than a narrower rim hence what NYrr said about it fitting properly

    Ah, yes... somewhere in the recesses of my mind that sounds familiar. Thank you.

    So, assuming this comes with the original rims what are my options? I thought I read somewhere in this thread that the bud/lou combo with the original rims didn't work, is that correct?

    Again, thanks for the info I appreciate it! It feels like it's been a while since I've had so many questions about a bike, so thank you all.

    The 2015 Whiteout will absolutely work with Bud and Lou on 65, 80 or 100mm rims.

    It will also fit 27.5+ and 29+.

    Well, picked up a gently used, green 2015 WO. Can't wait to ride it...

    Thanks for the help, I'll be back.

    Here is a little conundrum for a Monday night... what spacing hub does my whiteout carbon forks run (the 1st gen black and orange model) Front or Rear disc spacing?? My googlefu isn't turning up much since they removed the classic geo charts. My gut tells me it might be a FDS as this was about the time that it became the norm, my first Alu frame had RDS forks and that makes me wonder.

    1...2...3...Go!

    Orange Creamsicle 9:ZERO:7 XL Build - Stage 1 completed...current config is just under 29.5 lbs...reused several parts from the parts bin such as Hayes Hydros and everything is Aluminum except for new basic carbon bars...also Surly Mr Wirly 180mm crank is not very lightbut it allows for a 22-46 ultra low granny gear which will be interesting!! Not a lot of clearance on the rear JJ 4.8 Snakeskin in the lowest granny gear...but it's all good!!

    Surly makes a 28t nw stainless ring for the 58bcd on those cranks and a bash for the outer. Very solid set-up on that bike.

    Any news on the Lynx that they were teasing/racing locally this spring? Specs, difference between it and the Carbon Whiteout? EDIT: pics are up on 907bikes.com now, looks to be a "shorter chainstay, slacker head tube angle" carbon frame, bent seat tube to tuck the rear wheel under the rider.

    Internally routed dropper post on Whiteout!

    So I want to try a dropper and i don't have any problem w external routing. In fact i think internal routing is kind of overcomplicating a simple thing that works, i.e. cable guides.

    The thing is the one i want and have is the Bike Yoke Revive which is only offered in internal routing. So if i'm going in then i thought might as well go all the way! Why pop out near the BB if i have to ziptie the rest of the way. So I routed down the seat tube, through the BB shell, up the down tube and out the top side of the down tube. It's still one hole on the exterior but is much higher and drier than exiting on the low side of seatube, plus i don't have to zip tie or use those stick on cable guides.

    The ST and Down tube meet just above the BB shell so i took advantage of that space created by them just above the BB. There are two holes in the BB shell that align w each ST and DT. I very carefully cut a narrow slot between them. There was still a bit of material in the way from the ST so i ground it away just a bit to clear the cable housing.

    the slot:
    9:zero:7 Love-fullsizerender-3.jpg

    a view w dental mirror:
    9:zero:7 Love-fullsizerender-2.jpg

    I drilled a couple holes at the top of the DT where I thought there would be the least stress:
    9:zero:7 Love-img_3634.jpg

    Cut between the holes:
    9:zero:7 Love-img_3635.jpg

    smoothed it out:
    9:zero:7 Love-img_3636.jpg

    The cable routed quite easily from the top of the DT to the BB where i could get a hold of it, through the BB and then feed it up the seat tube.

    idk why the pics are rotated at random:
    9:zero:7 Love-img_3654.jpg

    The revive works great!

    Maybe this helps show where the cable goes above the bb shell:

    I changed pic to better illustrate actual routing...

    ^^ Yep, works great!

    Actually, it is not as sharp as the line i drew. The cable swings wide from the rear side of the ST to the front side of the DT.

    With the slott in the BB, the cable housing has plenty of room to make a smooth bend.

    The cable stays above the BB shell which leaves room for the BB housing. Except of course when routing it.

    I had a 2015 Whiteout that I absolutely loved. It was lightweight, handled like a dream and made me a better rider... but then got caught up in the 27.5 Farley craze and owned a couple of 9.8's... never really got them dialed in and just always missed the Whiteout so I sold the Farley. This spring I had the opportunity to purchase a new 2016 Whiteout Team Edition frame which I did... I still don't have it built up or even started and unfortunately due to the busy-ness of my life it'll likely sit in the box all winter!

    I've owned the Salsa Beargrease, Specialized Fatboy, Whiteout and Farley and the Whiteout is bar far my favorite of the bunch by a long shot!

    No idea. I asked about it on a Facebook post they mentioned it in weeks ago and no reply.

    I've also noticed that fatbikes.com has very slim pickings for fatbikes. there's a couple frames available and no complete fatbikes from what I can see (they do have adventure bikes and kids). Either they're in some financial trouble or they have a shipment on the way that got held up or something. They have lots of wheels/tires/etc on sale too which could also foreshadow trouble. I hope it's just supply/shipping issue. They make quality bikes and it would be a bummer if they ceased to exist.

    I agree. I like their frames the best. Come to think of it, I e mailed them a short time ago asking about the lack of frames and got no reply. They usually answered me very quickly.

    I was just speculating. No official info saying something is wrong. They posted up a picture of a new colorway Whiteout frame within the past couple of weeks. I emailed them about the correct hanger for my Tundra and they responded within minutes. Maybe they're just having shipping issues. I don't know.

    Edit: And I still keep seeing their adds on sidebar when browsing the forum here so they're still advertising

    Looks like they have a serious shortage on frames both carbon and aluminum at the moment. I highly doubt 9:zero:7 is going anywhere, love mine.

    They are definitely not, they are here riding with us in the rain and 50 degree temps in Alaska at 61°N. Miserable right now here.

    907 is trying to move into a new shop, which is an old fire department building, so that may have something to do with it. They've been prepping the new location, but at some point they have to pull the plug and move, it's not far, but it's a pretty big deal for them.

    How did the geometry differ from the other bikes that did not work as well as the 907?

    Heck with the firepole, they need an old firetruck to haul bikes and beer to the shop rides.

    Hey ya'll,

    I just wanted to give you guys some 9:ZERO:7 love! Jayem is indeed correct - we are moving to a new location and will be sharing the space with our local "mothership" store - Chain Reaction Cycles Alaska. It has been a tremendous undertaking with minimal manpower (a one man show since June) so I apologize for any emails or communication I may have missed :'(. BUT! We do have some help now, and that means things are going a lot more smoothly . Our office hours are back to full time, and we're ready to answer any questions or concerns ya'll have.

    Thanks guys, and look for some more news soon! BTW, check out 907bikes.com, I've been working on it

    -Nate @ 9:ZERO:7

    PS: Here's my Tundra (before all the snow melted)

    This is a hard one to answer... We have made a couple changes to the frame, and are currently waiting on samples. These are arriving around the end of December, so if all looks good, probably mid or late January

    Well, at this point, it looks like it will be next season. There won't be any more Whiteouts - carbon or AL, but there WILL be new models.

    The fatty is gonna stay fat year round and for all else, there's Sarge and the Wildcat!
    With Jeepin the 4.8's are just too fun to go exploring wherever presents.

    Workin on getting the '14 9:Zero:7 back on the prowl. Found a pair of Clownshoe rims with Bud/Lou at the local sporting good consignment store for 150 smackers. Tires are brand new and rims are mint. A few more bits and back in service!

    Double your fat, double your fun!!

    Nyrr oughtta be glad to hear it...

    Nice!! It's 40 degrees and very windy here on Long Island right now. Just spoke to my Uncle in Maine. Whiteout conditions currently. Expecting ten inches.

    Just found this thread. This photo is from last year but had a great day out today in NH. 6" fresh but rode a network that had a few bikes breaking trail before me. Love my 9 Zero 7!

    ^^ Can you have your Cake Eater and ride it too?!

    I did a nice ride up at Winona Forest near Lacona, Ny on Sunday. When i went in it was 10* F and when I got back it was 14*. Amazing i could feel the snow firm up w just 4* warmer. I was running 3psi F and 4psi R in my Wrathchilds on 65's. Theys hooked up great! There was recently about 7' of snow fall up there on the Tug hill plateau. NOT inches, 7 feet! First had 5' in one shot then another 2' on top of that a few days later.

    They groom for fat bikes and xc skiing. The trails were great. Still a little soft in spots because it has been so cold. Generally about 0*-5*F. No base has really set up yet. Now that things are warming up, that should turn in to a very nice base. Winona is highly recommended! Check them out: Winona Forest Recreation Association - Home

    Still love my '15 907 Whiteout!

    Seven feet. And everyone here on Long Island is losing their minds over the sixteen inches we got.

    I have been thinking about replacing my 9ZERO7 with the latest carbon, shorter chain stay, different angle this and that frame. i was thinking while riding along that what the hell is the point of that? I have this built just the way i want. This is a great bike and serves all my needs. Love it! 9:zero:7 Love-9zero7.jpg

    We will let you off; but from now on you have to leave your bike on the ground like this to take a shot, so the writing is the correct way up!

My gut tells me it might be a FDS as this was about the time that it became the norm, my first Alu frame had RDS forks and that makes me wonder.

    1...2...3...Go!
    To answer my own question, its an FDS hub for the 135mm x 15mm front hub on a 2014 Whiteout Carbon.

    Josh Chelf, sponsored by 907 bikes (he's damn near pro, if not pro in many events), won the Susitna 100 race last night with a finishing (total) time of 9:07

    So it's been a long time coming but we dropped my son's Large frame off at the powder coater today. My son picked a dark metallic green like the old Krampus. Maybe even a little darker. I decided we better get this build going because at 5'11" he looks funny on his Medium.
    Pics as soon as we start building.
