So what hub companys make 150 hubs or could u use spacers to make a 135 work.
I have the new Hope Fatsno and going to just machine new end caps. Of coarse I will need to slide the caliper over as well but I have a plan and with any luck it should work just fine.

after all i've done for you and this is what i get in return?? :cryin:
There is room in my heart for two :smilewinkgrin:

I thought this thread would be about downtube/crown clearances....

It was mentioned somewhere else that the tire will hit the downtube on a Yampa when compressed. Not sure on clearing the crown, but the tire hitting would be bad news, thus the new frame. Going purely visually, the Corvus from Fatback will probably have both crown hitting and tire rubbing issues. I am sure the Carbon Beargrease will not have that problem. I know the guys at 9:ZERO:7 have been riding the fork all winter with buds. No crown issue from what I am told, no tire issues I assume because it was ridden often and hard that way, so the Whiteout is good as well.

I didn't even think of the tire hitting the downtube fully compressed, yeah that would suck!!

I have an alloy 190mm 907 and an alloy 170mm Fatback.
I'm building the fatback up as 29+. Anyone have any clue if Bluto would work in that app? I was so excited to have a 29+ hardtail.
