I think the rear hub spacing is 170mm.. I haven't looked but I am not sure if Sturmey Archer makes a hub that size? :thinking:


I would get some all thread and use spacers to get it to the wider width if I ever get one..



let us know how it works out...

Ill definitely post my findings if I ever buy one.. My concerns were the weight and if I laced in the hub how much dish I would have to work into the equation to clear the monster tire..Im sure it would involve nights of gnashing teeth and wishing I didnt if It ever happens..

Trek too ... with their "farley" :

The spec " Fatboy" is purdy cool, with its carbon fork and triangular rim cut outs ... i'm sure it will be priced according. ( sad for those that think a steel fat bike is over priced )

Yeah.. I have seen that one.. it's pretty sweet.. and of course expensive. I was also just re-looking at that trek.. and it looks like it is made to handle a future suspension fork. :o :thumbsup:
