    full squish fat bike? so not really necessary in snow or sand..

    on the trail, will the fat tires provide meaningful benefit over a traditional tyred FS bike?

    Sweetness, bit surprised they didn't go for more tire clearance, wonder if they are offering frame-only?

    I think its great news they designed the bike around 4" tires. Their intended purpose looks to be more all purpose trail (off trail?) than powder (as with the other front suspension bikes released today). This tells me a major fatbike manufacturer is staying committed to 170/7mm rear spacing so they'll keep making hubs that size and more 4" tires. My new mukluk is not obsolete!

    This could be a super fun bike set up as a 29+ also I imagine.

    On packed dirt/rock trails I typically ride at home and on my travels to Sedona/Moab I'd say no.

    I can see it being useful for folks who encounter a bunch of varied conditions like soft sand....loose gravel and then proper techy MTBing.

    and for folks that want to ride a fat bike just because.

    A big chunk of the "bike thing" is not about need or optimization it's about being stoked about something.

    With a FS fatty I could ride a bunch of terrain on a fatbike that in the past I would have been trying to fit a square peg into a round hole.

    Like a lot of bike innovations time will tell what works and what doesn't. There may be a role for the FS fatty we haven't really thought of yet.

    I'm glad to see the FS fatty come to realization in a production package from a major brand.

    Let 'em roll and let's see what happens...
    Safe riding,

    Ha, neither do I and I am totally confused. I thought I wanted a cheap simple fat bike for dorking around on, and now I'm lusting after full suspension fatties and all sorts of swanky new parts.

    I wonder if Rockshox took that into account when designing the fork. 4" fatbike tires are a hair under 29" while 29+ tires are considerably larger.

    Aren't the borealis and RM front suspension bikes specd for 5" tires? If they fit, a 29+ should fit too right?

    Recently I have been trying to decide if I wanted a fatbike or a new full suspension bike. I guess I can have both.

    This would probably be great where I do most of my riding with the variety of terrain I encounter.
    Flotilla or Buffet.

    having a 2nd wheelset would answer this.

    man, these are so rad!

    but will anybody buy the BS2 when the BS1 comes with SO MUCH better components for $1000 more? Reverb, xx1, etc?
