    What do owners of the bg think of the brakes that come with it?
    How do they compare to XT for EG

    Well what Fatty yah thinking of snagging now..? I didnt use no scientific approach when i bought mine on Friday. The LBS had a Salsa open house and i stopped over to see what a Fat Bike looked like and when i seen that XX1 I had ask if i could take it for a spin. I knew I was getting one after about 2 minutes on it. I am a trek man but for the first time, i am drifting of coarse.. I just want it to put around with when the grandkids come over..

    Just curious why you chose that over the Trek? A friend of mine got a very nice Lg Farley built up sub 28 lbs with a Lefty.

    I'm guessing he got you in early to keep you away from his employees.

    It was a spur of the moment decision as my LBS had SALSA Days here last Tuesday and I was invited to see the bikes they had to offer. I was planning on going just to go and hang out as I would NEVER consider buying anything but a TREK... Wrong I was..Reason..? No paticular reason, it just happen to speak to me and thats all I need to buy another bike...
