    Salsa Fargo with 29+ is probably a close alternative.

    First thing that comes to mind would be a Ventana El Gordo in a "semi-custom" build with a one-size-shorter top tube?

    Last night in person saw the first gen Salsa Deadwood(the ridged model, not the newer full-suspension model), didn't know the name but really liked it. I then see someone mentions it here in another thread. So, if I can find a that in a used frame at some point that could be my next project.

    Talk to Willo @ Growler, believe they made a Mr Big Stuff with drop bars for a customer a while ago.

    Saw the pics on the owners FB page and looked very interesting.

    Good to know, thanks.

    I know not a true fat bike, but anything like the original Salsa Deadwood?

    For anyone that cares the Frame Alaskan is a fat bike and they made a version of it with the lauf fork and drop bars running 29+ tires. The regular rigid models comes with 27.5x4 and isn't dropped, but I don't see what's stopping some one from getting that version and running 27.5x4, unless lauf fork can't fit it, or getting the 27.5 model and adding their drop bars on them.
