Carver Ti Fat Bike – FOR SALE!!! $3200.00

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.

    was it hard to remove the decals on the fork ?

    I have just acquired the exact same frame (Ti O’beast) but I’m still looking for a crank. I’m thinking of RF Atlas to run with the clown shoe 100mm rims and BFL 4.7. I read that you had noise when you installed MWOD-moonlander. What do you think would work better?

    I just ordered the O’Beast fork and plan on using it on my Mukluk…which will require use of the 5mm spacers. Can you give a detail shot and maybe a bit of description as to how they work, so I can have a better install plan? Thanks!

    Hi! just wondering about the size of the seat binder you used on this build?
