    You have to check which model you are talking about. The El Oso range covers an original list price range from about $500 to near $2000. Then they were heavily discounted The range varies from rigid forks to a Bluto, mechanical brakes to reasonable Shimano hydraulics, SLX groupset down to entry level Acera.
    There are a few riding them on here. Try searching, or check the fatbike pictures thread, I'm pretty sure I've seen a few in there.

    If you plan to use it on beaches it might do but i live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and here for our 4 winter months the 2 most popular the last 4 years are the Norco and the Specialized Fatboy. We benefit from 80-90mm rims, 4.5 to 4.8 in tires to float. Smaller tires and narrower rims do not allow us to float on the softer snow so we have less fat days. The link in your post brought me to a 27 speeds wich is a low price model wich is surely heavy and in bikes i allways prefer a medium or high quality bike. My suggestion is pass on that one and get a 2015 or 2016 that will be lighter, better transmission, better wheels and focus on proper tires for your intended use.
