    may have to try

    building up a rear wheel with a marge lite and a nate tire and see if with a little cold forging I can turn my Siren into a fatty fixie... pic is with a marge lite rim and big fat larry

    chainline doesn't appear to be an issue with the tomi cog and 122mm square taper bb

    Put some more pressure in that tire - see if it pushes the frame over a bit!

    Also, is it wrong to have a fixie with gears?

    Crazy man!

    I bet you get as much attention parking that as you do with a fatbike.

    I wish more frankenbikes were as impressive!

    Oh yeah! Wrong on sooooo many levels! Excellent ride! I'm loving the suspension fork - make it a new lower, and go for a Fat Front. How does it ride?
