    Uh, I think the bike above could actually use a 100mm bb. Would save it from the monstrosity that it is.

    Exactly - 83mm. Innovative, ugly, pure ugly, but innovative.

    It's an alpine stars Al-Mega DX, with grey duct tape?

    I'm assuming this is a carbon bike? Looks like it's a hand-made/wrapped prototype.

    So the advent of the functional-for-fatbikes 1x drivetrain does give you some room to play with BB width. Interesting.

    I was going to say the same thing minus the duck tape, I wouldn't trust it. Buddy had one and he kept breaking it and he was only 150 lbs.

    I saw version 2 of this bike last December and it looked much better. I talked to Kevin and he said they were supposed to go to production in January for $5-$6k with a lefty. Too expensive for my needs but I think he is onto something.
