Sorted - Donor fat bike or parts please

Post by JohnClimber »

Has anyone got a fat bike that they don't ride any more sitting around looking for some use.

I drunkenly bought a new frame and a fork for the wife as a surprise present over the weekend and I'm looking for a donor fat bike at an affordable price.

Or parts please

I'm after
Fat bike rims (as I'd need to build it up with 150mm front and 177mm rear hubs (for this frame and fork)
Or a wheel set with the above hubs
100mm crank set


Non fat bike gear that I could find a home for
A 1 by drive train and shifter
BB7 brakes
Short'ish stem
Seat Post Size: - 30.9mm in black
Seat Clamp Size: - 34.9mm in purple or black

But money is tight, so I won't be able to afford any posh fat bikes, just ones you are happy to see go to a good home.

Cheers

Thanks Stu

The hubs will need to be 150mm front and 177mm bolt though rear hubs, which I think will be impossible.
So 26" fat bike rims with cut outs will be great and I can get them built up with the right size hubs when I have saved even more money

Everything sorted after hopefully finding a genuine person on FB market place after trying to deal with 3 time wasters.

Just a spare 177mm rear hub
Purple grips
And a head set for a tapered steerer and I think that's it

Hi John

I checked out my wheels in work and the rear 177 is qr so no good there I am afraid.

Good luck
Stu

It#s making me wish I had a fat bike again! 🤣
There are theories at the bottom of my jargon.
