The Whisky No 9 carbon fork is now available for your fatbike. The Whisky No 9 Fat Fork is made to be a direct fit for fatbikes that came originally equipped with a Rock Shox Bluto fork with a 100mm of travel. If your fatbike came with a rigid fork the No 9 uses a tapered steerer tube and a 15x150mm front hub. Pack on a little Winter weight? No worries there isn't a weight limit on the Whisky No 9 Carbon Fat Bike Fork.

Surly has a guide to their tire width, which should be a general guide for other tire brands and that can be found here.
