    Looks awesome. Does anyone know if it will take a Rohloff or other IGH?

    Nobody makes a 170mm IGH. Salsa has an adapter to reduce the rear dropout spacing to 135mm, but I don't know of anyone that has tried using the adapter for a Rohloff. You not only have to reduce the dropout spacing you also have to prevent the Rohloff from rotating. Without actually trying it I wouldn't assume it will all work fine.

    Besides if you are going bother getting a $2+ ti frame and a $1.5K+ IGH why not get something that's actually designed to work together - rather than cobbling together a hack solution?
    Safe riding,

    Good to know although I need more than 3 gears so it's not an option for me.

    The customer took it home to apply his knowledge to it and then he brings it in to for final inspection. I might give him the chance to post it rather than me the mechanic. He knows I want this build but he wants it also. I have ordered all of the parts for it and it will be sweet! We will be doing a fat ride this saturday and if he isn't riding it then I ask of you guys to come over and help me take him out?

    Nice, we just built one last friday night for one of our higher ups at the store. They are nice. I like the choice of the white rims. We did black rims w/ white liners and had the same fork as your buddies build. We were just over 30 on the scale and I think we could shave some more off in a few places. But they are fatbikes, right?

    Which front hub is that with the white brothers fork?

    Is it a Salsa. But with the brake caliper spaced to compensate for the rear hub disc spacing - front brake mount issue?
    A big boy did it, and ran away.

    It's a Salsa frt hub. White Brothers makes the 2 options for different hubs. This one is supposed to be set up with a Paul hub but with some modification it is doing fine with the Salsa frt hub.

    It's snowing now and I have to work, damn it!

    vik: With the bolt on dropouts on this ti model, I'm guessing a special set of dropouts could be sorted to accommodate the IGH properly. In theory, anyway

    With enough desire, $$ and a CNC machine anything is possible. You'd still have to use a chain tensioner or some other way to take up the slack chain.

    My thought is if you want an IGH that bad just select a fatbike that you can drop one into or consider a custom frame. Buying a high end ti production frame and then going to heroic lengths to make something work that was not intended does seem to make a lot of sense - to me anyways.

    The ti Muk looks sweet. I'd build it up in a way it was designed for.
    Safe riding,

    vik: What I meant was that Salsa could effectively sell different production dropouts for this frame - vertical 170mm, horizontal 135mm (spacing bridge built in), vertical 135mm spaced....whatever variants as required. The benefit of which would be long term flexibility to handle whatever type of wheelset one desires relatively cheaply (i.e. cost of the dropouts only). I think Intense has done this with their frames now as well, which is also a benefit from the perspective of crash damage (replace the dropout, not the whole frame)

    Beautiful frame though...

    They could and if they went to the cost trouble might as well make 'em sliding dropouts for the SS/IGH crowd. For the cost though I'd rather invest in a blinged out IGH friendly production frame [907 is working on a 135mm frame with sliders for 2012/13] or get a custom steel frame built.
    Safe riding,

    To keep on track I should note that I go over to the Ti Salsa frames in on of LBS and spend a few minutes just gazing/drooling at them. They are very nice to behold...

    This frame uses Salsa's Alternator dropouts, so no need for an additional chain tensioning device. But your point is well taken. If you are going to spend this much on a frame, just get a custom that is made to accommodate the IGH of your choice.

    Sweet looking frame though!

    "White Brothers makes the 2 options for different hubs."

    Is there now an option (promised, but not yet showing) from White Brothers? Per their web site, they will offer an adapter. Is that available now from them or somebody else?

    From the folks at White Brothers, regarding their adapter to allow a rear brake spaced hub to be used with their carbon fork: "No adapter yet, we are still doing some testing."
