Fitting a fat bike

Edited to add

Here are the components of that fat bike.
I don't need top of the line but
don't want junk either.

If you don't know about the battery and motor,
I appreciate your comments on the regular components.

Baad Rad Fat Bike Electric

Kenda 26x4" tires

80nm double walled rims

Aluminum hydro formed frame

Panasonic lithium 48V-14.5 Ah battery

500W brushless rear hub

Tektro mechanical disc brakes

Shimano 7 speed Acera shifters

Central LCD display console Satellite power / mode button to
choose one of five power modes for pedal assistance Twist throttle with cut-off switch

Suspension seat post


Fully adjustable threadless stem to fine-tune handlebar height.



I am getting closer ever closer to pulling the trigger on a fatty.
I posted what is below in general discussion but you all know fattys best.

Today I tried a Baad Raad electric fat bike.
This question isn't about batteries or fatties.
I just wanted you to know this bike will be used on rough trails,
snow and whatnot.

The question is about fit.
This is a one size fits all bike.
The frame is said to be a large one.
It seems to be about ninteen inches.
I am six foot two. I tried the bike out and
was pleasantly surprised as far as performance is concerned.
When in pedal assist it does exactly what I want it to do and more.

Do some bikes have shorter cranks on them?
I could still put up the seat more no problem.
The cranks feel short to me. Is that because the seat should be raised?
Is there more to it than that?

What about the handle bars?
My mechanic says they can be raised as well.
Will that affect how the bike fits as far as legs are concerned?

The price is more than right if I can tweak the fit a bit.
