    Works headsets are a relatively inexpensive fix, certainly compared to a fork. Unless you want a taller suspension fork anyhow.



    I know you were addressing jackstraw, but I have read...

    Keeping with the theme of what would you do different?

    I'd make sure to throw a -1-2* Works headset in the frame ASAP. I don't want the front end higher than it already is with that big-ass tire...

    I would have done this sooner.

    Got a 27.5+ wheelset done up for the Wozo, and am selling off the "regular" hardtail. Thins the heard/gains valuable space in my tiny garage this way....
  4. That's still about twice what I've spent on my...

    That's still about twice what I've spent on my most expensive wheelset to date!

    Got a Hope hub/AM Classic 3834 rim setup coming. Meets the needs of this particular bike, my riding, and my budget...
  5. Hahaha! I like you dude, but there's no way...

    Hahaha!

    I like you dude, but there's no way in hell I'm paying that much for a set of wheels on ANY of my bikes. Let alone the one that gets the least mileage!

    Already have the new wheel...

    I find myself riding the Fatty more than my hardtail (when not on one of the squishy bikes) so am in the process of thinning the herd.

    Putting all the nicer bits on the Fatty, have a work buddy...

    Bluto 120mm and Hope Fatsno/Marge Lite combo ordered up.

    Gulp.

    With a pair of 2.7 Surly Dirt Wizard tires.

    I think My Chromag hardtail is going to get lonely...Actually, the Chromag could...

    Wasn't cold! The skinny is narrower than my tires.

    Exactly that - trail markers. When the leaf cover comes down around here, places that don't get a lot of traffic can have the trail obscured...
  9. Why would the Bluto work any less/more decently...

    Why would the Bluto work any less/more decently than any other fork in the cold? Speed up your rebound a bit, toss in some lighter oil during an oil swap pre/mid-winter and fucking ride your bike. ...

    Not a 29er guy, but that is sweet!

    If I didn't already have a fatty and a hardtail I love...

    Custom steel with a 120mm Bluto. 67* HTA, short as possible stays with the intent of a 1x only...

    Still dig my highly tweaked Fatty, bought as a rolling chassis. Frame/front wheel are all that's left... It's grey and chilly, and I'm attempting to fight off a head cold so here we go.

    For the...

    I just have a spare 2.4 Q-tube and two c02 carts that just stay strapped onto my Fatty frame below the h20 cage. That way whether riding with my pack or just a few things shoved in some pockets,...

    HIJACK

    That 'oughta work well for a general burly hardtail bike out here. Lots of flexibility there to play around with tire sizes and rigid vs. squishy forked. Really, anything works out here,...

    I have a couple spots local that I pedal on the road to ride, but...the idea of riding the fatbike there no matter the gearing... ugh.

    I've commuted to work a few nights when the snow/ice was...

    26x11-36 works pretty well in our area. seriously. on this bike, i don't think i've ever had it in the 11t other than in the stand. the smaller ring actually lets me use the whole cassette,...
  16. No. Just...no. Was out on the snowshoes...

    No. Just...no.

    Was out on the snowshoes today. I'm not a "fatbiker". Just a guy who rides mtbs, one of which happens to have very large tires.
  17. Yes, but probably not in any way that'll do you...

    Yes, but probably not in any way that'll do you any good.

    I'm 5'8" with average arm/leg/torso and prefer small frames. The small with a 60mm stem and non-layback post fits me *just* how I like...

    Daren was one of the guys who gave me a good tour of Sunday River that trip I took up your direction. Nice dudes

    He had a couple of his FS rigs along - cool looking work! Only pedaled around on...

    You'd have to ask Drunk Cyclist. I just bought it for the handy dandy torque conversion chart. It's on there. Somewhere.

    Jebus christ on a cracker sandwich. Further down the girthier than average tire equipped all terrain bicycle rabit hole.

    That doesn't sound too bad...most of the stuff I've read on teh intertards sounded as if it would be a pain in the ass.

    Q-tubes - AFAIK, they are the house brand tubes for QBP. Near anyplace ought to be able to get them. Got mine via Jenson.

    26" x 2.4-2.7" variety. As said, saved a full pound per wheel vs. the...

    Seems a mix. I saved a full pound each tire from the stock On-One things to Q-Tubes. So far, they've been fine. By the time you get everything built up and taped, the weight savings seems minimal...

    Brilliant! Though, surely you can do better?

    I'm not understanding why I'd be getting any free BD gear out of any deal though, as I've never had any dealings with them.
    Perhaps you ought to...

    You'll get over it. Yep, not going to replace any of your other bikes by any stretch, but just plain fun on two wheels. Seems like it'd be perfect for where you live when you've not got decent ski...

    Oh. Ouch. That really smarts. Wow, you've certainly put everyone here in their places. :rolleyes2

    You may want to go see a doc about the amount of butthurt you seem to be experiencing.

    Methinks he's just pissed at himself for not getting his Fatboy ordered in a timely fashion.

    Or just too much sand somewhere.
  29. There's the rub - people who've been on 'em for a...

    There's the rub - people who've been on 'em for a while are selling those old OG bikes cheaply, to finance the new stuff. Then going and building up something custom-ish based around a particular...

    Split the difference - my plan for the Fatty is a 4.8-5" tire up front, leaving the 4" in back. The leftover 4" tire then becomes a spare rear - perfect since it's the one that'll get worn down way...
  31. Grand scheme of things, no. I'm planning to...

    Grand scheme of things, no.

    I'm planning to offset it with On-One's carbon fat fork once available, and a Hope Fat rear hub/Marge Lite combo down the road. Just gotta sell off some more old...
  32. I've discovered I want the front tire even...

    I've discovered I want the front tire even fatter. The bike lets you know pretty quickly it's still a rigid bike, if you're riding it the same (or making attempts to) way you are riding your other...

    yep! i have just as much fun on my Fatty as on the other bikes, just...different.

    First time I ever saw one was a few years ago - some dude making his way down Porc on one. Wasn't as fast on the absolute chunky stuff, but was able to just go take whatever damn line on/up/down...
  35. My take as well, though the snow benefits will be...

    My take as well, though the snow benefits will be good as well. Not as fast as the other bikes, not the same for droppy/jumpy stuff, but way more poppy and faster than I'd anticipated. Not going to...

    This - granted, I have nowhere near that amount of climbing around me, but still...

    It motors along pretty well on flat/down stuff, but yeah, slooooow climbing. There is just now way to get...

    My curiosity as well. Snow aroune me is great if you get on it the first day after it falls - after that, it becomes post holed, chunked up icy crap. Which I'm sure would be faster/more fun to ride...
