Carbon Fat bike frame with Pinion Gearbox

Does anyone know whether any manufacturer currently makes a Carbon Material Fat Bike Frame with the Pinion Gearbox? Thanks.

Probably not going to happen. Too complicated to house that gearbox with carbon in the BB area.

You think for a Fat Bike it is too complicated? Because they already make carbon frames with pinion for Mountain or gravel bikes.

For example: https://zerodebikes.com/pinion-gearbox

There is complicated and there is complicated for return on investment. fat bikes are pretty niche anyway now you are talking carbon and a pinion gear box. the make carbon for mid drives fat bikes so clearly it can be done someone just has to want it bad enough.
