    Fat bike specific geometry?

    Do fatbikes have any of their own geometry quirks. Obviously standover is an issue and has resulted in all the bent top tubes. But are st and head tube angles, chainstay lenth, bb height, etc all comparable with a general 29er?

    Just look at the geo charts. Any "quirks" have more to do with the intended use than the wheel/tire size (excluding the obvious needs for tire clearance).

    The Salsa and Surly, and some of the 9zero7 frames do not have bent top tubes.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
