    Five inch Frosty.

    I guess it was to be expected. For those looking for maximum clearance here is the 5" Frosty. Just a facebook tease.

    who's page?
    -can't see the link because I don't know who's page this is from to join.

    I'd expect it's for mud clearance with 4.8's on hundies but maybe they have something else in mind.

    It is Moots page.

    I suspect the same thing, you need some clearance with Bud and Lou because there tread will pick up a thing or two.

    ...5" is a more marketable term...

    ...besides, aren't the vast majority of us consistently referring to Bud n Lou as 5" and bikes that will fit the infamous duo as fitting 5" tires?

    I like big butts and I cannot lie, you other fat bikes might deny, when Lou rolls in with that 120 tpi case and those big knobs in your face...you get sprung.

    I didn't need to see this. I'm agonizing right now over buying a Moonlander, and after reading the above, just the thought of them big-assed rims and tires is giving me chills. I wish the Moonlander I'm looking at had the symmetrical fork, but I guess that can all be dealt with later.

    True that. Bud is 4.68'' and Lou 4.78'' (according to Surly themselves).

    I'm gonna mount the Vee Snowshoe tubeless on a 103mm rim tonight. My guess is 4.65'' on the 1-0-3.

    BTW, nice Frosty

    Yes indeed...Moots will be running half of their fatbikes this year as a "5 inch" and half at "4-inch" according to Jon C. That's stock, and of course you can go full custom. Big price difference though, as you can build a complete custom Moonie for less than the cost of a Moots frame. I am a Steamboat guy, own 3 Moots bikes, but couldn't bring myself to throw down for a FrosTi, although it is a seriously sweet bike.
