That's better than the $2300 I could get a Surly MoonLander for locally.

Looks like Specialized is getting in on the FatBike craze:

A little surprised it took them this long...

Yip, going to free the crank up and go looking for tyres I've been called a big girl before, thought I'd ride an appropriate bike.

For a square taper bb? That's so normal, I don't even know what model the puller would be. Good rule of thumb, take a washer and your crank arm fixing bolt and fix the tool to the bb cup so it doesn't slip off.

What's the frame? Smooth ti welds to me say '80s Merlin or maybe Spectrum?

18 spline = Phil Wood? Try: http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.a...m=041604000100

It's a Spectrum for sure. The most god-awfully-neglected Spectrum I've ever seen. Well...the *only* spectrum I've ever seen, but likely the most neglected one TK's ever spec'd. Going over it cog by cog to clean it up. re-pack the grease, etc.

I don't live all that far from TK's old shop. I should see if I can get in touch with him and check out the history of this thing.

Turn towards the front of the bike (on both sides) to get it off.

Once you get it off, you should be able to read the #s on the shell. Should say something like '68mm x 122.5mm' or similar. Your choices are 68mm or 73mm then spindle length. If the BB doesn't say, you'll have to measure end-to-end to find out. It'll be 118mm, 122.5mm, or 127.5 if that came off a triple.
