Reader’s Ride(s) ~ Butch’s 9:Zero:7



Everybody knows Butch…..or rather, everyone should know Butch. Think of the best dude you know and that’s Butch.


Butch sold his baby poop brown pugs last winter to help finance an extended exploration of the great American west last winter, leaving him without a fat-bike till late this fall. He wanted to build something racy and different, so he ordered up his Kawasaki Green 9:zero:7. He built 9-zero-7’s hydro-formed aluminum frame on the foundation of Surly’s limited-edition, drilled Rolling Darryl rims laced to buttery smoove Phil Wood hubs. Then those hot-wheels got mounted to a pair of Surly’s new super weapons, named Nate. No race fatty is complete without a White Bros Carbon Fork! The rest of the bits came off his old race rig along with some event schwag he scored up in the Northwoods.


A few days after my friend Cale rode Butch’s 907 he sent me a text message that read “fuck Butch for letting me ride his new fatty! It’s all that I can think about now!” The ultimate compliment a new bike can get is the painful upgraditis and envy that it creates in your fellow man (or woman). Cale was lime green with envy!

    Yep, Butch set the bar with this sweet ride. Good thing he got green; it’s easy to spot from a far distance when riding with him.

    FYI, this bike is able to leap big logs in a single bound……………… Even Superman is jealous.

    I’m hoping he comes out west so I can feed him to a mountain lion and take his sweet ride!
