    Cape Cod Fattie (907 in the 508)

    Started my build tonight on my 9zero7. Many thanks to Rotten Dan for all his help.Two questions:

    1.) Has anyone had any trouble with the e13 crank bearing cups threading into the bb shell of the 907's? Got about four threads in before it started tightening up.

    2.) I'm running Hope pro 2 hubs front and rear. My front brake calipers won't match up to the disk. Do I need a rear mounting bracket on the caliper for the front since I am running a rear hub up there?

    Hoping to get it built up before the weekend. I'll keep you posted...

    Cool bike! I'm trying to get my Pugsley done by tomorrow, but am still missing a rear hub and rim

    Looks like you have the offset Pugsley fork? That one requires a rear caliper adapter for the front brake. The non-offset 135 forks use a front caliper adapter.
    Sounds like the BB shell needs chased.

    Had the BB shell chased yesterday and the BB is in. I also bought the rear caliper adapter for the front brake. I am hoping to finish it up tonight.

    Looks great, brother! Makes me miss New England. I can't wait to hear some real first ride reports.

    Nice looking build, good to see another fattie around, maybe we can do some beach rides this winter with Dan.

    I'm kind of surprised we haven't seen one of these bikes decked out for shore fishing. We've seen em loaded down with almost every kind of gear so far except a fishing setup. Maybe a couple of pvc tubes ziptied to a rack to hold the rod upright. Not many trees to worry about, so they should be ok sticking up. A tackle box could be strapped to the top of the rack.

    What I really want to see pics of though... a 40" striper strapped to a fatbike.

    There's fishing bikes out there.

    A pug with a 9wt, box of flies and maybe a pannier rigged to double as a stripping basket. Or maybe rig a sand spike to double a a rod holder (rocket launcher style). So much potential. If I can find an LBS to build up a Troll frame, I'll definitely use it some for accessing nearby fish-able rivers. Won't be a true fat bike but I expect it to serve my mixed urban and trail environment just fine. And it will be used to carry tackle.

    Should have included this link as well. Some of these bikes photos look familiar too.

    Nice!!

    Looks great!! I'm finishing my 907 and planning a visit to the Cape this summer with it. The wife is a late riser so I'll be on the beaches with it in the AM.

    One question: I've ridden on the beach before and the salt from the sand took its toll on the chain and derailleur. How do you deal with that? I'm guessing a quick wash post ride?

    A quick wash is the short answer.

    Here's the long answer:

    Send me a pm when you come out. Maybe we can hook up for a ride.
