    Ready to order parts, but out of stock

    I was at the LBS ready to order parts, but QBP is out of stock on many parts. Even surly tubes! Guess my build is going to have to wait.

    Bummer! What's out of stock? There are alternatives for most parts.

    Tubes are out of stock. I wanted to get 45nrth tires, but they are out of stock. I wanted a paul front hub for my White bros fork, that is out of stock. I think some other parts too. I'll probably just order everything I can at the moment then search for the other parts.

    Q shows Tubes mid Sept. 45N tires no date. Whub end of Sept. They will all go fast. Get what you can now and then piece together the rest when you can.

    You don't need Surly tubes. Just use downhill tubes and save some weight. As for everything else good luck fat stuff is always out of stock this time of year.
    The LPG

    That is what most of us do. I use the Q-Tubes or Specialized downhill tubes. Both work great.

    I have been waiting 4 weeks for Q-Tubes 26x2.4-2.75 superlight from Jensen.

    You can do without the Paul WHUB if you get the Carver spacer, and then you can use a DMR SS hub or the chinese Because or Bonz 135mm Trials hubs.

    As per tire options, Nate is apparently slower than the HuDu but I am making it up way more hills than I used to. But to be fair, I'm looking to get a HuDu for my front as well...

    Whats different about the downhill tubes compared to regular 26" tubes? Pardon the noobish question.

    DH tubes are thicker, Normals or Superlights are preferred because their weight is half that of Surly's Toob. They work because the thinner rubber of some brands (Q-tubes, Bontranger) is very consistent in thickness and capable of stretching to double their specified size.
    This is nothing new, most correctly sized tubes simply allow for easier mounting of the tire, you will find using an undersized DH tube may require considerably more effort to get to the correct size.

    Wharton State Forest, heart of the Pine Barrens in NJ. We were supposed to get together for a mass fatbike ride earlier this summer. Had to skip it due to 100+ degree weather that day. Get that bike together and join us for the next one!

    Too funny. Now I know where your sense of humor comes from. I live in Little Silver, up by Red Bank, but lived in Lakewood from '85-90 and used to go to the beach at Pt. Pleasant.

    Was over at the LBS the other day talking to the owner, Andy, and they have put in for a bunch of fatbike rubber (he said a bunch of 45NRTH HD's, Dillinger's, and Escalators) and they have fatty tubes in stock. He just built up a set of Marge Lites to some blue Hopes and waiting on some nice tires. Apparently they'll be offering custom built wheels and fatty builds.

    fwiw... pedalonline.com or call 303.798.5033 .

    Andy knows his stuff for sure.
