    Do 170 mm frames require the rear wheel to be offset?

    I am looking for a Fat Bike frame. I was thinking about getting a 170mm rear spacing frame and build my own wheels. I was wondering does the rear wheel require an offset like the 135mm?

    No. All 170mm frames are symmetrical. Fatback, Salsa etc.
