    Received mine today. No set-up, straight from store to trail, no shock tuning, no tire pressure adjustment, just rode it, and to top it off the skies opened up.

    First impression:

    Not light., climbs well, felt very natural and controlled despite unfamiliarity.

    Need to get the tubes out, soften the fork a little and ride more when the trail is not little streams. Anyhow, two pics below- fresh out of the store never trail ridden and after ride and dirty.Norco 2018 fatbikes-20170822_160335.jpgNorco 2018 fatbikes-20170822_170303.jpg

    Nice Bikes

    All of Norco's fat bikes are great. I decided to go with the Bigfoot 1. I upgraded the front hub and added a suspension fork. Here is my bike check and ride from a couple days ago.

    Looks awesome Colorado.

    How do you find the Renegade forks? Can't seem to get them in the UK.

    Because I didn't want to spend more than a few hundred dollars, I took a chance on the Renegade. I have been pleasantly surprised. Even on lots of jumps I have not bottomed out! The rebound is great, and my hands no longer vibrate to death on chunky downhills. It feels almost as cush as my All Mountain. You should be able to get the Renegade off Ebay for a decent price. Most sellers will ship to Europe as well.

    That's great that they work well. I'd need a new front hub to take them as my Voodoo Wazoo has QR wheels rather than a bolt through axle.

    There was a German seller but he seems to have stopped seeking them. I opted in the end for a pair of cheap Chinese Pasak forks, certainly helps my knackered shoulder but they ain't great.

    This one's from Australia, but looks like a great price even with shipping.

    So tempting. Just the problem that I'd need to add another £150ish on as I'd need a new front wheel.

    The Wazoo has been a great introduction to the world of fattys. Time too start saving up for a better one now though.

    You just need a hub.... you can re-lace the spokes on your wheel.
