    http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/Njc4WDEyODA=/z/lK4AAOSweW5U8-hi/$_57.JPG is the bike that I will be buying. I wish I could offer better pictures and measurements. The tire itself is 100mm wide or just shy of 4". This is a pic of another fat bike with cantilever brakes installed http://i1236.photobucket.com/albums/ff453/peatbog123/Summer bike 2013/fb6.jpg~original . I know they're out there but I can't find them on any site. Nor do I know what brand they are. Not sure what query to enter. Help! Please. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fat-Tire-Be...ingle-speed-/281790321294?hash=item419c03128e

    With all the measurements for the frame I received to make sure it would accept the engine this will work but am stuck on a front brake. I would go disk but that's too expensive.

    That is a great looking fat bike. Alas, the frame and fork doe not have the "posts" that allow you to mount the canti brakes. They make adapters for bikes with normal tires that make it easy to mount canti brakes without the posts (only one hole in the frame or fork needed). Do a google search and see if somebody makes them for fat bikes now.

    Yes. Hose clamps only look good on a hose. You could substitute some big zip ties in a non-clashing color.
