    Other details on the Blizzard include the use of a 197x12mm rear thru axle, and the new 100mm travel RockShox Bluto’s 150x15mm front axle standard, with clearance for 4.7″ tires on 100mm rims.

    only if the first few who've been waiting for these bikes forever finally get one, realizes fatbikes are no fun and tells the internet to cancel all their orders. I think surly and salsa are pretty safe on the fun issue.

    Besides, plenty of people still buy mercedes over volkswagen despite the price difference. Just to be clear, I'm calling Surly the Mercedes of bikes.

    I've just been told by my LBS that Rocky has a lower speced Blizzard for around 2000. No details yet.

    Oh geez. It keeps getting better. If I could get a fat bike with front suspension and at the same weight as I am riding right now... for that good of a price... it would be like when Beavis met Butthead for me.

    Not that I've seen so far. I'm hoping that it can be kept under 35 lbs with the fork and pedals. Is it unrealistic to hope that it is closer to the 30 lbs mark rather that 35?

    I would guess that 32#, +/- 1# should be pretty realistic.

    Weight of the Fat Rocky Mountain Blizzard

    Anyone here anything about the weight of the new Blizzard? Also heard from an LBS that if you want one, order it ASAP.

    Rocky rep told my LBS that delivery date was October 1. Two packages. One with the Bluto and XT something and one without the Bluto and Deore level. Details were scarce.

    ^^ I wish you kept it as is.
    To the OP....figure the bike will weigh about the same as a Fatboy plus 2ish lbs more for the fork. Best guestimate I can give you.

    Weight of the Fat Rocky Mountain Blizzard

    I'm wondering if the 100mm rims with BFL's could be relaced with the correct hubs and fit the Blizzard. I love 100mm rims set up ghetto tubeless. Never had a problem down to 3lbs.

    Looking to pre order one also. Having a hard time with any shops within a few hours of me (I'm in Michigan). Where did you order yours from and when do you expect it to be delivered?

    I ordered mine from Lakeshore Bike in Marquette Mich. great shop. Helpful folks. My understanding is that all anyone knows about delivery times is what was listed on the web mentioning October delivery. I have my old 9 zero 7 until then so for me not any big concern.

    It would be nice if Rocky Mountain would actually manufacture one of these and put them out in stores for people to get on and ride. Pretty pictures and marketing hype only go so far.

    surly? surely! Road a Moonlander through the desert out back of Dubai a few months ago - Rub al Kali - actually, the empty quarter. The local surly importer sells more fat bikes in UAE than any other local, so say the surly guys. The only thing you can ride in the sand are the 4.8" tires. Simply amazing to grunt up 50 meter sand dunes and scream down into the wadi's on the other side. Fantastic riding, wish I had more time to spend there. Wanted to ride through the desert to Jordan and on through Turkey, but had to come back early. Someday perhaps.

    Has anyone heard any new news bout the Rocky Mountain Blizzard? Any sightings? I did notice one thing in the pictures that I do not like. The rear derailleur cable routing down by the cranks on their way to the chain stays. I have had such cable configurations creep so that the cable moved into the bath of the chainring teeth. Probably more of a problem on full suspension, but I still prefer it up higher.

    Would one be able to use this bike as a regular 29er hardtail with smaller tires? I have a FS bike and don't think I could justify getting a trail 29er just for kicks, but if I could have a bike that could be dual purpose fatbike and hardtail 29er(with smaller tires say 2.2-2.4), I might be able to justify that.

    All the press releases said it wouldn't be available until this Fall...

    Which converted into FatBike time = Spring 2015.

    The first rule of FatBike Club is don't believe any product ETAs.

    The second rule of FatBike Club is never sell the old fatbike until the new fatbike is here and you are sure you love it.

    The third rule of FatBike Club is your Ultimate Forever Uber Fatbike build will be obsolete next Tuesday.

    The fourth rule of FatBike Club is whatever is wrong it's Surly's fault.

    regarding the first and second rules...yes, yes. I know. But I had the opportunity to sell it for basically the same as what I bought it for after 2 seasons of riding and it was past snow season and it was quickly becoming obsolete in many ways because of all the new standards coming out so I wanted to not miss my chance to cash out. I may end up paying dearly in the end if the snow is flying and the Blizzard has not yet arrived.
    regarding the third - I surely know that as the one I sold was my super uber forever bike...for two seasons.
    and regarding the fourth, I enjoy reading the rants on here but am pretty enamored with Surly's bikes, if not their marketing. My first fatty was a white Pug and it is the bike I most regret selling (although I also got almost 100% of what I paid for it after several seasons of riding).

    Any reports on the Blizzard

    The RM Blizzard was announced in April and I have not seen or heard anything about this bike since then. Is this on anyone's short list of new bikes?
