    Is it me, or do they not mention anything about a Crankset?

    Saw that too. Very tempting… but how would I sell my wife on the idea that it’s an amazing once-in-a-lifetime sort of deal???

    I just got shot down trying that. I might need to resort to prostituting myself. Told her that and she seemed less fussed about that than the cost of the frame/fork/wheel package.

    Now I just need to grow a nice moustache.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    They do now, but without a link as I guess they don't sell cranks for a fat bike separately: "A complete drivetrain - you'll need a cassette, chain, rear mech, front mech, chainset, BB."

    And you'll need an adapter to run a front derailleur.

    I think On One normally sells the Fatty with a Truvativ Howitzer crank.

    Playing the head game with this, right now.
    I know a few people have done it, via a P-Solver and Shimano D, and it's been theorized that an E-Type unit might work.

    I'm wondering if an SRAM X5 can be used on the front, just to keep it all in the family, so to speak.

    Gotta do some more research into throw length and mounting options, I guess.

    Not sure what the problem might be. As long as you have a direct mount FD and the PS adapter bracket, you should be fine. I have done this on both of my builds with X7 3x10s and grip shifters (only using 2x8). No problems here. Not sure using triggers...

    Not sure there is one ... But don't want to spend money until I've verified the fit and swing.

    Use a PS direct mount and a high direct mount FR.
    "Regular" clamp on FDs do not work with 100mm BB shells.

    I used the problem solver but I can't see why an e type bracket with an appropriate derailleur won't work..

    I looked on their site - doesn't look like they have any.

    I've also looked on other sites with no luck - who has got stock in Europe?

    I know who makes suitable cranksets.

    I don't see any on-line stock of 100mm BB cranksets anywhere at the moment.

    Universal cycles, fatbikes.com, and many others have cranksets in stock.

    buy a howitzer bb and a crankset of your choice, single or double.
    you can find a suitable bb in many places online.

    france.
    TRUVATIV HOWITZER TEAM Bottom Bracket 169mm 100/100G/66 - Probikeshop
    belgium
    TRUVATIV 2013 Bottom Bracket Howitzer TEAM - 100/100G - Chainline 66mm (00.6415.025.000) RCZ Bike Shop
    germany
    Truvativ Howitzer Team Innenlager - BIKE-COMPONENTS.DE

    probably at other places too.

    one question, are there 168mm and 148mm versions of howitzer? cause there is a 168 being mentioned in a link above and I don't know if it's a typo or sth I should avoid.
    would like to run a double crankset (if I end up buying the frameset that is)

    Think 168 is the axle length of the 100mm BB..

    So this on Fatty Shimano XT Umwerfer FD-M785 E-Typ 2 x 10 ohne Tretlagerblech should work fine with plate and screws? I will run Mukluk 3 crankset on my fatty.

    Very tempted to get the rolling chassis bundle - if the freight to Oz isn't too horrific. I'm assuming as these are 170mm it makes sense to get the wheels, and that IGH isn't possible.

    It's not clear from the description whether the front wheel requires a normal front brake or a rear brake, like the Pugsley. Anyone know?

    Also, does anyone other than Phil Wood make square taper 100mm BBs, and in lengths other than 145mm???

    Thanks guys!

    The wheelset will give you the answer!

    ^ I saw the quoted text, but couldn't make any sense of it. I *think* it probably means that the hub is meant to position the rotor to line up with a rear brake caliper but that a front caliper will work if the rotor is spaced outwards by 5mm - is this correct?

    Just bought an entire fatty to Oz. Great bike so far but had I had the option of purchasing this, building it up with existing parts and buying a few specialty part, there would have been no second thoughts. Freight to Oz appears to be $50US. Bargain.
