Titanium O’Beast Frame

Dialed Fatbike Geometry in a Versatile, Classy Frame

Carver’s original production ti fat bike frame, and the most popular frame we’ve ever produced! The O’Beast now comes stock with sliding dropouts, giving it the versatility to accept a wide variety of axle and dropout styles. The O’Beast comes in a brushed (polished) finish with a bead blasted logo only and has rack mounts.

While optimized around 4″ tires, the O’Beast can accommodate 4.8″ tires with a few adjustments (see the FAQ section.) Typically we recommend the Omega’Beast which has ample clearance for all setups over 4.8″

Reviews & Press

 

Can I run bigger tires than 4.7″?

With a sacrifice or two, you probably can! The easiest way to allow for additional tire clearance is to go with a 1x setup in the front. The more outboard chainline will keep your chain from rubbing on the tire, allowing for a wider tire. Another way to help is by truncating your cassette. This is the act of removing cogs from the cassette, and replacing them with an equal amount of spacers behind the cassette. This also brings your chainline more outboard and increases the distance between tire and chain.

 

Can I use a Bluto on this frame?

Sure! It will slacken your angles by a bit, but that’s usually not a bad thing. Keep in mind that not all sizes have clearance for the compression adjustment knob, so a conversion crown race piece will be included.
