    Love it.

    Shame they didn't widen the rear end just 1" - there's plenty room - it would make a good camping bike.

    Holy balls, man, that shiz tight clearance wise, were you sweating it as you were putting it together?
    Fat cargos are awesome, I wish somebody would production spec one. I have schwalbe fat franks(2.5) on my Transport and I couldn't go much fatter in the rear but the front fork has surprising a ton of clearance!

    Well, I wasnt really sweating it beacause I found out the 80mm with 3.5 would fit by accident. I already had that rim tire combo on the front and laced up a Nuvinci n360 to a 65mm rim for the back but when I installed it I found the hub to be defective, so I had to wait on Nuvinci to replace it. in the mean time just for fun I tried my front wheel in the back and was astounded when I found out it cleared. The pictures make it look like there is less room then there is, the tire clears with NO rubbing anywhere and I can slide the wheel further back in the drops to get more clearance up front but my 185mm rotor hits the caliper. As soon as I get a 180mm rotor I'll just run it alll the way back in the drops.
    Anyway, when I found out I could clear the 80mm with 3.5 in the back I said to Hell with the Nuvinci and just got another 80mm wheel. So now I have a brand new nuvinci hub laced to a 65mm rim with Dt swiss spokes and another matching rim that I was going to lace up just sitting there. I am a single speeder anyway so screw the 5 pound Nuvinci! Just look at the box full of crap that I would have to put on my clean machine!Extra cables and crap all over the place. I am going to sell the Nuvinci wheel and extra hoop for practicaly nothing just to get them out of my sight! I should never have strayed from my pure singlespeed ways.
    I do go back and forth between the 80s and the 65s though because I could put so many more tires on the 65s like Hookworms. Maybe I should keep the hoops and lace them to some DMR Revolvers.

    Finally a fat cargo bike that is legit! No other way to get a cooler of beers into the desert. Bravo on a beast of a build. I guess it would have been nice to fit 100mm clown shoes with a proper bud-lou footprint in the front and back but, hey, you can't take all the glory on a fat ride, brah!
