    Burizado, with your inseam I would go with the 20. The 22 would be in your crotch if you slipped off the bike and werenít on flat ground. I have a longer inseam, 35 maybe even 36, and I am pretty comfortable but I could easily have gone with the 20 and been good.

    Hey guys! This thread has me thinking long and hard about getting one of these. I am no stranger to fat bikes as I used to own a Surly Ice Cream Truck. I loved fat biking but I had a kid on the way and a house to buy so I sold it and now my main ride is a Redline Monocog 29er. I love the Monocog but I am considering selling it to get one of these as my one bike for year round riding. I will probably run it singlespeed during the nicer months and then during the beautiful Minnesota winters i will put the gears back on it. Has anyone tried this cassette or another one like it? https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07F3HKHP1...v_ov_lig_dp_it
    I had 1x10 with a 42t granny gear on my Surly and it proved itself very necessary when the snow was deep and soft. I don't mind having an 8 speed drivetrain (especially since it will be mainly a winter thing) but if I can get more range out of it that would be great.

    Also what size is the seatpost on these bikes? Is it 27.2? The bikes direct site doesn't say specifically.

    Thanks! Eric

    I just went with one of these big 8 speed cassettes when I was needing to replace my cassette anyway. The jumps between gears is definitely noticeably bigger, but that great-grandmother of a granny gear is nice to have when you need it. I won't go back to the smaller cassette.

    Yeah i don't mind the big jumps between gears. I don't shift often anyways being a singlespeeder 98% of the time I tend to mash the pedals rather than spin but having the bail-out gear is nice.

    Is there enough seatpost on the 14" to fit someone 5'8"? I'm looking to get one that my wife and I can both ride. Thx.

    There is plenty of seat post left for me, but the 14Ē will probably be on the smaller side for you. Youíre probably the upper limit.

    Anyone see this yet? I think it is fairly new since I've been on the website almost daily checking for a 22" burnt orange:

    Gravity 2019 Bullseye MonsterFIVE
    FIVE INCH Tires Fit* Fat Bikes


    There is also an "X" version with 1x10 and I'm assuming upgraded components, and a "FS" version with front suspension.

    Now the decision to wait until October for the regular GBM, or go with the 5" version now for $200 more.....

    I've been riding the amazon air fork for about a year now and can report that it is still working great! I'd post a pic from my recent ride in CO but since the last time i posted, the pics process has gone mandarin. at any rate i am highly satisfied with the purchase. a lot of cheaper air forks reviews report issues at colder temps. i rode consistently through the colder months (granted im in TN and the coldest ride would have been in the 30s F) and only had issues once. perhaps storing my mike inside makes a difference. here is the fork i bought:

    Just a head up from todayís ride. I ride some seriously chunky dirt due to cow post holes and cracking / upheaval. I was bombing down a chunky dH section and heard a weird ďpingĒ. I finished off a few more turns and I could tel something was up.

    Inspecting the bike showed the rear QR had completely popped loose the wheel was only in the dropouts due to the weight.

    This could have been disastrous. I had just recently did a 100% check so this wasnít something I hadnít checked lately. I cinched it up and finished my ride with no issues, but might be worth a warning to others.

    The QRs donít look chintzy but they also donít look high end. I might go pick up a rear quality one just for piece of mind.

    That could have been bad! Out of the whole gbem, the rear qr has been my main concern, wish it was 177 ta. I ride everything from trails to jumps and light dh. Maybe time to grab a hope or salsa qr. Anyone upgrade this part? Suggestions?

    I have never had a problem with the QRs on my GBM, but I had a similar problem with the rear Maxle on my HAL Boost TEAM 27.5+. I fixed it by using a sturdy zip-tie through the hole in the end of the lever and around one of the rear triangle members to keep the lever from popping up for whatever reason. No problems with this fix so far. For what it may be worth.

    Mastodon on the Monster

    Finally got the 120 mastodon pro installed. The knob on the right was just hitting the downtube, I went from zs/zs headset to to a cane creek angleset with an ec lower. The stack height gave the clearance needed, and the adjustable cup raked the head angle out 1.5 degrees. Rides great, Love how plush the fork is, the h/a from the angleset also made the bike more stable at speed (and my toes dont hit the tire anymore lol).

    Pulled the trigger on a 22" GBM5. Pre-order says it ships Oct 15th to Nov 15th. Will post pics once put together. So much harder waiting a month than the normal 7 days for bikes in stock.
