    It can be done, there's room, I've taken measurements.

    Hopefully the CS is closer to 17.5", that's a lot better. It's still possible to get as short as 16.5" CS though on a fat full sus with a bent seat post and a 120 mm BB. Takes a little creativity with the CS/swing arm design but it can be done. I'm planning on making such a frame soon.

    Sooo, in the evolution of bike ownership, would it be wrong to skip over ever owning a full suspension bike and skip right to a full squish fatty?

    My Banshee PRIME literally just showed up at my front door. Maybe I will try to squeeze a dually and Dirt Wizard back there to curb my lust?


    Now where the **** did I put that damn credit card?

    In my opinion not wrong at all.I am pumped about this bike and what else it will inspire other manufacturers to develop.

    I would have had they been avail 2yrs ago, however it's clear the time is now and what's to come.

    I'd ride the Prime for 1 year and see what happens in the FS fatty world. This is a pretty novel product so significant refinements are likely.

    If the Bluto sells well I expect a 34/35mm fat fork to hit the market for added stiffness.

    A year of feedback from customers will give DW/Salsa some ideas for improvements to the fat SP implementation.
    Safe riding,

    Pretty impressive for full suspension, right out of the box, size large, with pedals!

    " I was however utterly baffled by the lack of heft. With pedals, my large test bike barely broke the thirty pound mark."

    Nice. This is exactly what I'd want if I were to get one. Which I'm not. But I might. But I shouldn't.

    Oh, F@#$ it, here's my credit card!

    Part of me wants to put a deposit down to get one of the first ones.Another part of me wants to wait to see what other manufacturers do.I do imagine they have this dialed in nicely though.

    This stupid bike has me brainstorming the feasibility of purchasing one, even as I am about to close on a new house. It occurred to me that I could sell my Bandit 29, and my Pugsley with two wheelsets and Lefty, and I'd not have to outlay a ton of cash.

    But then I wouldn't have a FS 140mm 29er and a hardtail fatbike. I would just have the one bike. Which might be cool sometimes, but other times not?

    Sell the Pugs and keep the Bandit...might have to wait a bit longer to buy the FS Fatty...but they are several months out aren't they?
