    That's pretty awesome.

    Which hubs are compatible with it though?

    So far, only the Borealis hub. The new Beargrease hubs might be.

    Nice!

    The Hope Fatsno hub should fit, too.

    Hope Fatsno uses rear disc spacing. Which is mildly annoying.

    Shouldn't need to buy even more stuff just to get it to work.

    What's with all the "suspension corrected" fatbike forks?

    I will be excited about any fatbike part that can manage to be kept in stock all year round.

    Steep price, could possibly be a fair price, given its very narrow market. Still a fair bit more expensive than the Carver

    All you need is a ~5mm rotor or caliper spacer to make a rear spaced hub work in a front spaced fork. Putting a front spaced hub in a rear spaced fork is the trickier problem.
