Carver Ti Fat Bike – SOLD!!!

I wanted to build a titanium snow bike capable of running 4.7″ Surly BFL or Husker Du 4.0, so here it is:

Behold, the Carver O’Beast Ti Snow Bike. I tried on this build to feature parts from smaller and/or lesser know companies that build fine products, and I think I have a good mix here.

Probably not the best year to build a new snow bike with the lack of snow in almost every state this year, but I did get it out a few times so far. The beauty of this symmetrical 170/135mm build is that I can have a second set of wheels for the Spring/Summer without some of the issues of building offset wheels.

9:ZERO:7 Whiteout Carbon

907-whiteout-bike-largeUtilizing the same geometry as the race proven 9:ZERO:7 aluminum frames, the Whiteout excels in the most challenging environments on earth.

The Whiteout frame uses a 197mm rear dropout spacing to work in conjunction with a 12mm thru-axle 190mm rear hub.  This gives unmatched strength and stability.  By utilizing 197mm spacing, the Whiteout can be built as either a super light race bike with “narrow” wheels, or a high performance adventure rig with the widest fat bike rims and tires on planet.

The Whiteout frameset is designed in conjunction with the new 9:ZERO:7 190mm hub set.  The rear hub is completely convertible, so it is compatible with both the aluminum 190mm and carbon 197mm frames.

Frame weight is 1340 grams.

Complete Bike MSRP $4199.00

Carver TRANS-Fat – Full Suspension Fat Bike

Every month I find the world of fat bikes getting more and more interesting. Below is the latest creation from Carver bikes, the TRANS-Fat full suspension fat bike.

Here are some direct quotes from the Carver website:

“A project that was close to a year in the making has finally concluded with our first production TRANS-Fat. The TRANS-Fat was originally created as a custom bike for a customer. Thankfully, the customer was willing to wait as we diligently worked out the quirks with one of the world’s first production full suspension fat bike frames. The resulting bike rides like you might think: smoooooth….”

“It is great to see a long-term project come to a successful end. After the final photo shoot the bike was packed up and shipped off to a very happy customer. After riding several versions of the TRANS-Fat, we can say it is an absolute blast to ride. At first it may seem a little too soft, mostly because you have added four inches of rear wheel travel to an already aired down 4″ rear tire. But after the initial squish factor fades, you realize how much this bike rips. Climbing, descending, cornering…the bike NEVER loses traction. Maybe not the fastest bike up the climb, but the TRANS-Fat opens the door to climbing trail sections you never thought possible.”
