Finished up Ray’s fat bike which will see most of it’s life in 29+ mode for now. Build is pretty strait forward with a set of custom wheels buit around I9’s 135/170mm Torch Classic Hubs and Velocity’s Dually Rims, Thomson Stem/Seat Post, Watson Ti Bars, Avid BB7 Disc Brakes, a mix of Shimano Drivetrain components with Zee and XT along with One Up’s 40t hop up kit, Race Face Next CF Cinch 170mm specific cranks all of which roll on a set of Surly Knards. 100mm bottom bracket makes room for 29+ easily and 5″ fatties are just another wheel set away. Ray’s got this one in hand and putting it through it’s paces. Custom fork to match with 15mm Thru Axle. First of it’s kind out the door here at 44HQ. I’ll let the pictures do the talking from here on out… Enjoy.

Let's get in close...
