Just in from Lance at 11Nine Fatbikes is their Fat-bike Suspension Fork and 15mm Thru Axle Front Hub! Sent to us for testing, we aim to get it out on the trail ASAP!
We just unboxed the Sub 5-pound beauty and did some initial inspection as well as shot some pix for you all to ogle. Impressions are, thus far, favorable!
We’ve got to build a wheel for the 15mm Thru Axle hub in the next couple of days and we are hoping that Cross Country racer and Dirt Jump Expert, Aristotle Peters, can debut it at the WORS race at The Rock (Crystal Ridge) in Franklin, WI this weekend. We will keep you posted!

I’m sure you all have questions! Please understand that this is a soft rollout for this fork. The first run went pretty quickly. Retail Price of the 11Nine fork and the 135mm, Thru Axle Front Hub is $899.00 (USD). Last I heard just a few hours ago Lance had two left from the first run with more expected in a couple of weeks.
Lance and crew are working on their website but, meanwhile, if you are interested in one of these forks shoot them a message through Facebook or email Lance at (firstname.lastname@example.org) they will respond, confirm the details and provide them with the information to make a payment.
Look for more from 11Nine Fatbikes later this year as they are working on both a Ridged and a Full Suspension fatbike frame aimed at All Mountain and Enduro riding. (The photo above, obviously, is the Rigid version) We can’t wait to see them and throw a leg over for some thrashing!
