    New to me Mukluk

    2011 salsa mukluk. Size medium. Awesome shape.

    XTR rear.
    Pauls thumbies
    Slx front
    Clownshoes
    Larry 3.8s
    BB7s. 200mm up front.
    Ergon cork grips
    Thompson seat post

    It's so much fun and thumbies are by far the best shifters ever! Anyone have success with bottom bracket spacer or do I need an offset crank. Still some rubbing when in lowest 2 gears and granny gear even with a cog removed. I want to be able to clear my husker dus.

    On to pics.

    You might want to think about a Moonlander crank or similar wide crank. I have a rear clown-shoe on my 2011 Mukluk and it clears in all gears, but I have a 155mm bottom bracket spindle that is offset 10 mm to the right (in other words, equivalent to about a 175mm spindle with no offset)--I'd be surprised if you could get that much offset with a stock crank. Note, in my case, the wide crank means shifting is decent but not perfect. Here is a discussion of what cranks will work with what tire widths...

    and this link will tell you how wide your tire is...

    I got it from jonlikesbikes, who posted above you. Not sure who he had package it, but they did a great job, no damage and easy to unpack.

    It was a local bike store that sells a lot of fat bikes, so they had the experience:

    Mad Dog Cycles - Mad Dog Cycles Bike Shop and Repair in Orem and Provo, Utah.
