    We the people ... Fat Bike Manufacturer Identification

    Does anyone know what fat bike manufacturer’s Serial Number starts with “AA”? No other identifying elements. Looks like the frame was stripped and repainted. Frame looks like an older Surly but their S/N start with “M”. Thanks!

    What's the rear spacing? It doesn't look offset.
    I thought maybe a Motobecane Lurch but no...

    Well that sure would make it a bit nicer than a Lurch.

    Weird that someone put a triple on it.

    The triple was what tricked me into thinking it was a lower end bike. I wanted to say 44 Bikes but saw the crankset and said no.

    How can you tell? All the pictures I can find of his bikes have curved seat stays, a curved seat post brace and no reinforcing tube at the rear brake.

    I think it might be the Nashbar Big Ol Fatbike.

    Sorry everyone I was just pulling it out of my keyboard for a joke. Soon we can play these games like the VRC forum.
    But really do you think it is a Wildfire????

    ^^^ you are supposed to save those for April 1st.

    44's top tube/ seat tube reinforcements are curved where this one looked straight. I was doubting the seat stays too.

    Nope. Nashbar had formed aluminum tubes and no seat tube/top tube brace.

    I stand corrected as they had two styles. My buddy has this one:




    The OP's frame certainly looks like this one, green in color and complete with triple crank:
