ns-019 fatty new build
« on: January 08, 2016, 11:28:09 PM »
Like 1 1/2 weeks shipping to Canada

Setup tubeless in an evening like nothing using HURRICANE tape from the hardware store with homemade goo.

Whee lset is peters new Fat Club 68mm width 35mm depth fat bike rim

Had 3 rides so for about 50KM and they felt great.

I am running the 4.8 maxxis Minions on his ns-019 frame with plenty of frame room to spare with a gx 11 speed groupset.

Bike weighs in at 26.5 pounds with pedals.

Any questions let me know..

Looks nice! Man, those deeper section rims make the tires look even bigger than they would otherwise! Cool!

Rolling single track mostly. About 4-5 bikers going to keep the trails pretty good. We have a good local xc sking club but they are still not sharing the trail so the winter trails are a bit more limited.

I would say my only (should I) of would of been not going Dillinger 4-5s then studding my self. I think they roll Better then the minions or bud/Lou yet offer alot of the trackion due to the studs.

But I chose the minions based on price and they are new which I wanted to try.

I will probably suite it up with 4.0 jumbo jims which will drop about 600g a tire and probably just rip in the Summer..

Looks awesome dude! Love the deep rims too!

With the crazy warm weather we've had, I haven't been in snow yet on my 019--Looking forward to it!

Hello, how does the 4.8 in. tire fit on the 68 mm rim. I'm hesitating to go to 80 mm instead. Any problem with the deformation of the tire ? Thanks

I would say 4.8 tires are just fine. The rims never felt undersized. If you want to run Uber low psi either go 100mm or I believe 68mm is more then enough. .
