Ok Guys and Gals This build off I decided on another Fat bike build seeing how I picked one up afew weeks back on sale so here's the start:


It was a little hard on pedaling so I did a 6 speed conversion to it:

Also purchased some parts off ebay, Will post more tomorrow morning when I get around to unpacking all the box's

This thing is crazy, crazy cool that is, looking forward to seeing it with apes and a banana! And all your tires are backwards, but I am guessing you are doing that just to annoy me! :21:

How will the toe clearance be when turning?

Luke.

I may have done that with the tyres just for you luke :p and clearance is ok but I'm moving the forks about another 20 or 30mm further forward just to make sure.
Yes! But I hope you have good legs cause you're gonna need some muscle to pedal that I guess!
Cool idea!

It's got a 6 speed conversion there for it but the wheel's getting rebuild at the moment, so I borrowed the rear wheel off lurch

Will you be adding a pivot point to the frame as well?
Don't think steering will work if those are welded on.
Looks like each wheel will have it's own headtube and linked by a steering bar, hardest part will be the Akerman steering angles...
