Carbo’Beast

No-compromise Featherweight Fatty

Better late than never!

We expected to be riding the all-new Carbo’Beast for this past brutal winter, but despite the delays it’s hard to be upset after looking upon this sleek full carbon fat bike frameset. Weighing in at around 3 pounds, the Carver Carbo’Beast aims to offer a diet fatbike frame at the same insane Carver value you’ve all come to know.

Does it fit them really really big tires? is a question we’re happy to answer affirmatively. Featuring front and rear thru axles, “Is it stiff and responsive?” can be put to rest as well. Clearance for 29+ wheels is the final topping…

We elected to skip the bold graphics this time, and instead will offer a variety of sweet decals to apply to the matte black frame.

This frame comes stock with 190mm thru-axle dropouts. There are 190mm QR dropouts available, and 197mm thru-axle dropouts will be available soon. Keep in mind you will NOT be able to use a 197mm spaced hub on this frame without first swapping the dropouts to 197mm. Note: The Carbo’Beast has the best chainline when the rear wheel is built with a 5mm offset.

FAQs

Any sacrifices to making the widest setup fit?

Nope! The Carbo’Beast has clearance for the largest tire on the market, mounted on the largest rim on the market, with full gearing options.

Can I run a narrower Q-factor crank?

Sure. If you select a RaceFace CINCH style crank, you can use the 170mm spindle to get a narrower Q-factor. However, in this case you must use a direct-mount single ring in the flipped, convex position.
