    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.

    Just for fun I am going to guess right at 30# without pedals.

    32.5 lbs would be more realistic.

    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.
