    9zero7 FS

    I can't be the only one here who saw the pics that 9zero7 put up on Facebook this morning. There is another player in the game.

    FS WITH a lou on a clown shoe in the back. That is the part that is going to cause wardrobe problems for Gcappy.

    WTF?
    I asked them a while back, their response was basically we're not interested in FS fatbikes, but here's our shiny new carbon frame....

    We need details....is this a one-off or....?....

    I just saw it and had to change my drawers! I have two large frames with shocks on order as soon as any one will listen to me up there! My Lefties will be on the front!

    Edit:
    Looks like a 1X, but that's OK!

    Must be a 190 rear to clear that?.... if it's a 170, I'm going to have a dilemma on my hands.

    Just emailed with GW at 9-0-7. Don't expect this bike any time soon. Still just a proto. Maybe next year.

    Crap... If I had that, it'd be my one and only bike. I'd just have three sets of wheels.

    Right back at ya... last time I rode w/ a 1x that was set up for the climb... the rest of us out peddled him on the way down.... by a long ways. 2x will always give you a wider range to choose from, with whatever they come up with cassette wise. To each his own brother

    Word. 1x works for me with my mediocre skills and I never plan on winning the race to the bottom of the hill.

    Like I said bro, to each his own. Ride whatever it is you like best! Beautiful thing is, that we have soooo many choices now. Some folks like SS, some like 1x, and some of us still want (I said want not need) the range 2x offers. It's all out there and available for whatever you cycling purpose is. So more power to ya and keep on pedaling!

    And to (somewhat) answer Fat Urkel's question... just guessing of course, but I think with Bud Or Lou on hunndies that 1x may be all that fits and still reach's all the gears. With 65's and 4" tires might be able to run 2x. And since it fits the 5"/100mm stuff, it probably will fit 29+ too. And for sure you could run 2x with that.

    the 29+ full suspension possibility is the part that is VERY interesting to me. I've been playing around with 29+ on my echo the past month and have been really happy with it so far.

    The bike has been in the works for awhile and should just rip! Been in the works before the other big company's was announced for sure. They are taking their time to make sure this thing is tight when it officially released and I for one am glad they do.

    Info fresh off the Facebook:

    -197mm Rear, 150mm Front
    -4inch Travel Rear
    -Rear Tire Clearance of 100mm Rim with 4.8 Tire
    - Tapered Head Tube
    -New Rear Dropout
    -New Post Mount Brake
    -Available Spring 2015
    -Price, TBA
    I proudly ride for these guys.

    are you referring to salsa? the bucksaw started R&D nearly 2yrs ago and was certainly done right over the course of that time. I can't say for certain the 907 was even talked about back then but it's possible.

    Not disrespecting the Bucksaw, just that this bike had been in the works well before the Bucksaw was announced.

    interesting indeed with not a hint of buzz here until now. Was it hinted about someplace else?

    The bucksaw looks like a nice but it being built around a 4 inch tire and to my understanding it will not fit a 29+ tire (I do not know this for sure) would take it out of the running for me. I have been running 29+ knards on my DYI FS bike most of the summer and can say that combo is pretty awesome. Especially if you are in the 200lbs+ class, so any bike that will run a 4.8 and a 29+ is a winner in my book and this bike looks sweet!

    so strictly insider info. With this thread giving light to it for the first time it's fair to say it was not in it's humble beginnings before the BS (again over 2yrs ) of R&D to sort it properly.

    Nobody here said it was started before the Buksaw, just before the Buksaw was announced. Not sure why it matters either way as I suspect both will rock.

    I like this better than the Bucksaw because of the ability to run a 5" tire and 29+. I have a 6" travel fs fatty I made a few years ago and I wish it was able to run wider rims and fatter rubber for snow and mud. I like options and this bike could be the only bike one could need with different wheelsets/tires for all conditions.

    Alright, I will take a large black with CCDB and Renton 550# spring, please have CK make a (3) rear hubs for me, and Stans make a 100mm, 65mm, and 29+ for me. I would also like my Pike to be converted to fat ready, and a Shimano crankset. I wouldn't mind a Carver 150mm Carbon fork too. Might as well be XX1 with electronic shifting.....b!tch!!

    If anyone can properly execute a full-squish fatty bike, my bet would be on 9:zero:7.
