Fat Bike – 9:zero:9

finished fat bike

My 135mm offset 9:zero:7 is finally all put together. It has Large Marge Light rims laced to a Shimano XT hub at the back and a Surly hub at the front. It’s mainly SRAM x7 drivetrain components, except for a Shimano XT E-type front derailluer. We also have blingy Race Face Turbine cranks.

Brakes are Avid BB7 mechanical discs.

The tyres are 45 North Husker Dus, and I’m running 29″er tubes because the Surly tubes were out of stock.

The bike weighs 13.4kgs, not bad for a fatty! I haven’t had a chance to ride it far yet but it is pretty fun to ride in the sandpit at the park across the road and not worry about digging in and falling off! I do want some Crudcatcher mudguards though as the HuDus seem to pick stuff up and fling it at me as I ride.

Anyway, off to ride it now.
