    New 9 Zero 7 Fatbike?

    Stopped by Chain Reaction yesterday and saw an Orange 907 that is definitely a new beast. Couldn't tell exactly what they changed but it has a sloping top tube now for increased standover. Snapped a pic on the Iphone, will try to upload tomorrow.

    I wondered the same thing. I just ordered a frame a few weeks ago and specifically asked if there was any redesign coming, and they said not that they know of. However, I noticed that they also had no idea when they were getting more in. They let their inventory of medium frames run out (I purchased one of the last). I'm assuming that they are clearing out for some sort of new design, or at least a color change.

    This falls into place with something else?

    Who was the first company to produce their bikes with increased
    chainstay clearence for wider 4.5" tires...9Zero7.

    Interesting indeed?

    they have a sloping top tube anyway - or do you mean bent toptube like the fatback - which incidently would stop me buying one cos it looks awful (although it has its reasons), and orange is one of this years colours - its on their website

    wet orange

    You sure the 907 will fit a 4.5 on the rear?

    At least with a Ti 907 as mentioned in the sticky above, "Ti 907: 121 / 125"
    A 4.5 inch tire would measure 114.3mm?
    So in theory, it might fit...

    The BFL will probably be taller and in the zone where the chainstays are curving back in. But I hope it fits seeing as I have the alloy 907.

    With 100mm rims my 4inch tire looks tight back in the rear, seems like 4.5" would be too big to fit!
