    Noob needs help

    Greetings everyone! I'm looking to build a fatbike but I don't know crap about biking terminology,specifications,etc.. However, I do know what it is I want but I dont know what parts fit with what(sizes,specs,etc).

    I'm looking to build a single speed that can fit tubeless 26 x 4" front & rear (is 27.5 x 4" possible?). I don't want to spend thousands of dollars, I don't need to be king of the trails, just a solid fatbike built on a budget!

    First thing I want to order is the frame. Could someone please point me in the right direction?!

    Thanks in advance to any replies,

    You know who has an idea of bike terminology and parts? Bike manufacturers. They also get large quantity discounts on parts so you often can buy a complete bike for less than the cost of the sum of the parts.

    Point you in the right direction on a frame yet you tell us nothing about you? What do you intend to use it for? Do you want something aggressive or stable? What size tires do you want/need? Every frame that is out there that is available as a frame only is probably good at what it was designed for, but not good at everything. Since you know what you want, tell us. Help us help you.

    Have you checked out the Fat Bike Comparenator thread? There is some good info in the spreadsheet that may help.
