    Real chain to tire clearance on new sram x5 fat crankset?

    I see, where are first users of sram fat bike crankset.
    In specs distance from frame to 22T chainring on fat x5 is wider than distance to small chainring on most isis or howitzer cranks.
    I'm very interesting, what is it in real? What size is a gap between chain and tire on 1-1 speed?

    Now I have set: howitser truvativ blaze crankset, 9 speed 11-32 cassete, origin dewister on darryl, salsa mukluk 2012 frame. Chain rubs tire on 22-32 gear
    I'm looking for 36(32)-22 crank X 10 speed 11-36 cassete gear set without any restrictions and with minimum costs. And I won't use thin wheels... Fat X5 helps me?

    I don't know anything about the new SRAM stuff but I have this crankset Fatback Crank on my 2013 Mukluk with a 11-36 10 speed cassette and have had no tire rub issues with a 3.8 Larry or 4.0 Floater on Holy Rolling Darryl's. I will probably switch to Big Fat Larry's for the winter and I don't anticipate rub issues with those either.

    2 problems with Fatback Crank:
    1) They write: "2.5 mm wider chanline compared to similar 100mm cranksets gaining aditional chain-tire clearance". What is "similar crank?" Where is many versions but no exact numbers.
    2) $90 above sram x5 and no shipping outside USA.
