Won't these work with a surly rear hub? I still get the hub thing confused, right now I am using the surly front hub with rear disc spacing and a I believe it has a 10mm axle.Like the idea they're lighter than steel.
Fat tyres at low pressures make a nonsense out of the "feel" of frame materials.
I really don't like this 135mm front hub stuff. Why use a 9mm axle when a 10mm would be better - especially in a wide fork and a tyre that has the grip to put a significant amount of twist into the setup.
Why not simply make wide forks to take 135 rear hubs. A single speed hub of that width is light.
Oops, that means no chance to sell an expensive proprietary hub...
www dot fatbikes dot com/907-fork-aluminum.htmlThe aluminum fork uses a rear hub (unlike the Snowpack carbon forks).
The description of the fork on fatbikes.com says:www dot fatbikes dot com/907-fork-aluminum.html
Uses 135mm front disc hub
On facebook they say:
No Offset, 135mm, Rear Spaced. Will come in a 450mm and a 468mm Axle to Crown.
Looks like the fatbikes dot com info might be wrong, I emailed them and am waiting for a clarification.
