    NSR-4 with Carbon Fat fork FBoy or Beargrease

    Anyone toss on their Fatboy or Beargrease to a North Shore Rack? I've got the Fatboy, but a buddy with the BG. Would like them both to fit.

    I'm not finding much on my searches.

    Thanks.

    I have a BG and a NS Rack. It does not fit; awesome rack otherwise.

    Anyone have a Fatboy and a friend with this rack? Test fit? North shore was helpless in their email reply to me.

    I know a 2013 Mukluk with Enabler fits fine, not sure why the BG wouldn't. Is it just the little difference in the shape of the fork?

    I do know the segmented steel Fatback forks do NOT fit and pretty sure the steel On One forks wouldn't either since they are very similar design.

    Can't comment on the Al BG, but the carbon fork crown is massive.

    Good point wasn't thinking about how thick the crown is on it. My Krampus fork is barely able to fit it because of the vertical thickness of it.

    Has anyone tired the AL Beargrease fork or the Salsa Bearpaw fork with a North Shore Rack?

    Time to bump this back up. Lots more Fatboy owners now. If you know a bike won't fit, toss that in here too. Thanks.

    My Charge fits - chromo, 135mm fork fits with a bit of finagling. Not perfect, but it's held securely.

    I contacted North Shore Racks before Christmas and this was there very quick response.

    "Hi Jeff,

    Thanks for the email. Fat bikes usually work fine. Some with very large carbon forks might not but we sell them to people with fat bikes regularly. I've included a picture sent to us by Wade Simmons a couple of weeks back from a photo shoot they were doing for Rocky Mountain Bikes with fat bikes on the rack.

    Merry Christmas,
    North Shore Racks Inc."

    Someone in the local lot had one. He wasn't anywhere around, but I took the chance to try it out anyway. The carbon Fatboy fork fit snug. Not sure I'd love it there all the time, but it did fit, and it did seem well protected. My friend ended up putting a bluto on his beargrease, and the picture above clearly shows that working.

    Cool, good to know. Yes Bluto fits like a glove.
