    With a max tire size of 3.8" I don't see how that's even considered a fat bike these days.

    Looks like a nice fat bike to me. I would put Industry 9 wheels on it and Raceface Turbine Cinch cranks.

    I have a Commando. Really would fit a 4.5" with a 1X drivetrain. Mine is built with 80mm Mulfut rims and 4" Ground Controls. At least 15mm clearance.

    I'm using a 2x9 drivetrain with a SRAM X5 crankset and X9 gripshift and rear derailleur which shifts great.

    It's a blast to ride, very smooth ride and fun to jump!

    Certainly a keeper.

    Bumping this up as my frame just got here. Build is going to look like this with parts from my part bin.
    Paul Fhub 36 spoke front and Hadley 36 spoke rear wheels laced to Speedway Uma 70 rims, wrapped in HuDus or VanHelgas, Raceface Atlas cranks, BB7s, Jones H-bar, 1x10 Sram x9. Pictures soon.
