    Sorry to ask a question that's been asked in this thread before, but I'm still a little squeamish to pull the trigger on an order. Really looking forward to my Rolling Chassis to arrive!

    I have a set of these on an older giant in the garage (Truvativ FireX Isis). They have a Race Face Narrow Wide on them already and everything:




    Will the stock BB work with these arms? I *think* I read that Hussefelt wasn't true ISIS and I see it's mentioned in the description.

    TruVativ Howitzer Team Bottom Bracket 100mm Shell 66mm Chainline in Tree Fort Bikes Fat Bike Cranks/BB (cat925)


    Or would I be better of with this?

    FSA Platinum DH 100mm ISIS drive Bottom Bracket from Fatbikes.com


    Would be nice to go with the X5 crankset, but still exploring where I can save some money to splurge elsewhere.

    Thanks for any help.

    I can't answer your question as to whether your crank will fit the FSA bottom bracket.

    The Fatty frame doesn't come supplied with a bottom bracket. Just a standard english threaded bare bottom bracket shell.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Thanks. I can't seem to see anywhere that specifically says howitzer BB is isis. I'd prefer to use it though. FSA says isis, my cranks are isis and I think that's the safe bet.

    This makes clear they're not the same: "the Howitzer spline looks similar to the ISIS Drive standard spline but is actually different, so as to prevent the usage of ISIS Drive cranks on the external bearing BB, which would affect chainline and Q-factor." (Bottom bracket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Thanks Tim, I didn't catch that at first!



    Love the carbon fork!, I wish I had got one when I ordered the rolling chassis.

    The carbon fork is sweet. Just curious about the specialized tubes. If those are the same as what comes on the FatBoy, they're some of the heaviest tubes you can find...

    Hi alshead!!!

    The spec inner tubes are the 2.3-3.0 ones. Not the Fatboy inner tubes.
    They are 300gr lighter than the on one inner tubes

    What stem length are most of you riding outside of the standard, which I think is 60mm?

    My scenarios I have done so far:

    80mm stem with Titec J Bars
    100mm stem with Mary Bars
    50mm stem with Nukeproof 760mm riser
    40mm stem with Nukeproof 760mm riser

    So far I am at the 40mm and staying there for now. Is anyone else using a stem so short? This is my first venture in to short stem wide bars, although my XC bike is a 90mm stem with 711mm flat bars. But the Fatty seems to lend itself to a more AM setup with a slacker geo.

    EDIT: I should add I am about 5ft 9in 32in inseam more leg then torso and running 175mm cranks on a 16in frame.

    I decided to go with the x5 crankset like the On One build. Being my first ever build, I have yet another dumb question. She's all together, but the driveline doesn't look right. 32 single ring on the front, 11-36 10x on back. The angle of the chain coming off the 32 and getting to the 36 is a tad extreme. Are the bikes coming with both spacers on the BB (one each side) with the X5 crankset?. Or is it just one on non-drive? Thanks for any help.

    I have the 2x X5 on my Fatty. It has just one spacer each side. For what it's worth, I usually run it like a 1x, and never have issues with shifting into the 36 rear and I use that combo frequently.

    If you have the tire/chain clearance you can use both spacers on the non driveside to improve the chainline.

    My Fatty stopped shifting on my last ride. The x-5 shifter froze and it felt like it was stuck between gears. When I got home I pulled the shifter apart and found the cable had jumped out of its retention point and the rotating barrel it sits in had moved. The cable had then bent so it stopped the barrel from turning in either direction.

    I hadn't secured the rear wheel properly and it had jumped partially out of the drop outs. I assume that the wheel moved at the same time I was shifting and this released tension on the derailleur, which in turn released tension on the shifter cable. This doesn't quite make sense, but it's the only cause I can think of.

    I replaced the cable, eventually worked out how to get the shifter's spring back in place and reassembled it. I then found I only had 5 of the 10 gears as I hadn't released the shifter's tension before reconnecting the cable. I puled it apart, did this and everything is working properly again.

    I couldn't find any pictures or diagrams of the x-5s, but other versions are similar enough to work it out.

    That's too bad. I am using a XT shifter/XTR RD and I have had the wheel slip out of the drop out 3 times now, twice in one race. It is annoying and am wishing Shimano made fat bike skewers to stop this non sense. However I have not had a mess like you had from it, but fear I might.

    Can anyone recommend a close cam style skewer to use?

    I also ordered a 30t ringmaster for my setup so it will run 30t x 12-36 9 speed. I think this will be a good mix all year around and I will be able to keep up with the skinny wheel guys without spinning out too much. Two trails here I am wanted more gear on with a 32t up front, but I think the 30t will lend itself to winter riding much more.

    Have you checked how your axle sits in the frame? I found the front's was barely short enough to allow the QR to clamp the fork and hub properly. This explains what I mean: On-One Fatty front wheel retention.

    I think in my case the wheel moving was probably user error as I haven't had any problems with this wheel before.

    There is a Fatty Trail in development right now and as soon as we are confident that we have the details worked out, then we will make sure to let everybody know.

    love reading this thread being I am waiting on my brand new Fatty... I am looking at adding a one ring crank like the majority of owners here... any advice, thoughts on an ideal chainring size to make it a decent 1x10? and crank option, etc... I see some really nice ones on here just wondering if they are all custom or bought that way...

    thanks!!!
