    Looking for Fatback skookum updates

    Anyone know if there are any changes to the Skookum for 2018/2019 and if a Surly Lou (4.8 ish) will comfortably fit as a rear tire on a 80 mm rims? Really looking at this bike again.
    Thanks,

    Frame is unchanged except addition of lightweight flt version. The big news is most builds include mastodon fork and fatback’s in house wheelset. Been running mine with 4.8 minions with room to spare, even with studs in.

    Please post some pictures of your Skookum. Rear tire clearance as well as whole bike.
