I think that a frame that requires offset drilled rims increases the final price of the bike...
Surly has a monopoly (for now), in the fat bike market... for example there are few alternatives for the rims (often not cheaper than the large marge) and for the tires.
Currently 2 rims and 2 tires cost as much as the frame... This is crazy!
I can be cheaper to buy a sandman frame (or similar), which requires a 165mm rear hub with a standard - non offset - rim; the 165mm hub costs about $130
