    Oh man. That is sweet with the black fork. Is that a 16" ( aka size small)?

    My wife and I have a tandem road bike we used to ride thousands of miles a year on. Now she only rides a few times a year. I have been thinking that a fat bike would make her feel comfortable enough to ride a single and we could then ride our fat bikes together.

    Is it too late to return the stem and seatpost? Ritchey red parts would look really sharp.

    ??????

    I have a dilemma! I originally bought a set of Deore hubs do to the fact that I want to keep this build on a reasonable budget. Well I happened to score a set of Kings cheap and they look very nice on it but truly with the little my wife rides do I waste them on this build just for the cool factor that she won't notice or even tell the difference. Or do I save them for a future build or sell them to help fund the pugs? I think I will drink on it tonight

    I have Kings on my Pugs (with Marge Lites) and my wife has Hadley's on hers (w/LM's). For slow speed varied terrain riding, a high engagement hub is a beautiful thing. Build them for her, and they can always be re-used at another time. My secret to the N+1 bike formula is always have a nice bike for her, then I can get whatever I want

    Looks like they’re purple? Some chicks dig “chick colours”—might get you laid. My wife would notice.
    Don’t frail and blow if you’re going to Braille and Flow.

    My condolences. Just show her what they cost new and maybe you’ll get lucky.

    Thanks. Nice and petite at 5'3" so I can throw her around here and there. She actually would have been better off with the XS sized frame I believe, but I put a shorter stem on it to make up for the discrepancy. If possible with fatbikes (also seems to ring true for CX bike sizing), my OPINION is that a size smaller is better in the long run—shorter wheelbase, more compact cockpit size—make up any handling/comfort glitches with longer seatpost and longer stem.

    Really nice build. Small fat bikes just look so ridiculously cool. Have you weighed it?

    Thanks but it's actually a 18". It weighs in a touch over 31lbs with about $1300 invested along with some bits I had in the bin. For winter I have a set of Hd's for it.

    Right on, well done. Should have said smaller fat bikes.

    Red instead of yellow

    I think these pictures convinced me to go with red instead of yellow for my new Pug
