Has anyone got any photos of 100mm rims mounted on the rear of their 907?

I was wondering about a 2nd wheelset for beachriding on my 2011 frame, but I do wonder about the frame clearance when using these rims & regular Larry, even though it is stated they do fit.

Just want to see how snug they are :thumbsup:

I know there are people running a BFL on a 80 on the older 907's. Not sure what the width difference is between that and a skinny Larry on a hundie.

I have tried that, but when I put the power down, there is enough flex in the wheel to cause rub, as there is only a few mm clearance
May have to buy something fatter for beach work & keep the 907 for trails/camping adventures as I love it:thumbsup:

That was me. I had a BFL on a 70mm UMA 2 in my 2010 for a while, but when I'd stand to pedal it would rub the chainstays. Went back to an Endo on the rear. I suspect you'd be fine with a 100mm rim/3.7 or 3.8 tire, but I haven't tried it myself.

907 2012 without offset + FlatTop 100 + BFL + 5-8 PSI (On 15 PSI rear wheel not fit to frame)

Photo after several trips.

fatbikes.com recommended to me this setup. no apologies, no decision from them I have not received so far.

very bad service.

now I buy moonlander and happy with rear wheel clearance!

Have you got any pics?
I've got some 100mm rims. I'll lend one to you so you can fit a BFL, Larry, Nate, or Endo to it and measure how far into your stays it will go. Then there's no need to get 100mm rims to build a wheel unless it works.

I could also do this with my 907, but I suspect my mudguards would get in the way, so I'd have to remove them.

I have Flat Top 100's and BFL's on my 907 and I have no frame rub. I needed to do some creative drive train spacing but I did not loose any gears. I run the tires around 5 psi

Velo, I have to go to Norway for a couple of weeks, but I might take you up on your offer when I get back & maybe catch up for a ride somewhere:)

My bike is an "old" 135mm frame, so there is no way a BFL is going to fit in the rear. It doesn't even work with 80mm rims :nono:
