90s Nishiki MTB....looking for company and tubing info

So i am 95% sure this is a '96 Nishiki Blazer. Its absurdly clean and barely used for a 20 year old bike. Yes, this is pushing the 'c&v' qualification, but it has nishiki on the downtube.
The RD and canti brake both show jan/feb of '96 for manufacturing dates, so thats what im going off of.

Sure, by all means please quote away on the value.

Im hoping to get info on the company and tubing.
There is a decal that says this was made in the US. In the 90s, Derby owned Univega, so any idea where this would have been made? My guess is Kent WA since Huffy/RaleighUSA made bikes there and Derby also owned Raleigh...not sure if the timelines work or not.

Also, what is 2fat tubing? This has a huge downtube and is no lightweight. Just curious if 2fat is k own to have been tubing from a specific company or what.
