    Anybody think the E13 cranks and the Deore brakes are worth the $600 upgrade in price?

    X0 (vs X7) R. derrailleur on the Expert model, too. Not sure what "S" series Gripshifters are.
    But no, unless the specs are wrong, not worth it. Plus, I like the matte green/black of the base model better .

    Med Moonlander Vs Fat Boy 17.5

    Both have the same HTA, STA, HTL, & BBD.

    ML has a 321 BBH vs 315 far the FB = a 12mm shorter dia. tire on the FB (750mm?)

    ML WB = 1093.9 vs 1105.0 for FB

    ML FC = 643.9 vs 650.0 for FB * unknown for FB is the A/C & Offset

    ML CSL = 450.0 vs 455.0 for FB

    ML ETT = 595.0 vs 603.0 for FB

    ML STL = 457.2 vs 445.0 for FB = (18.0000" vs 17.5196")

    ML Bar = 660 vs 700 for FB

    ML Stem = 100 vs 60 for FB

    The FB should have more SO room than the ML, which is listed at 800.1mm = 31.5000"

    Weights not given but expect the FB to be lighter.

    Looks like a shot across the bow at Surly?

    Unless I am missing something, this is the same info that has been listed on the Specialized web site for a while.

    As far as I can tell, the only new info here is the ETA. There is another thread discussing the ETA. Originally, my LBS told me December. Recently, however, my LBS is cautiously optimistic about November.

    Since Specialized does not mention an ETA on their web site, I am wondering what your source is for an ETA of November? I am not doubting you because you confirm what my LBS has told me recently. However, I am curious where you saw or heard an ETA of November?

    I'd like to see people stop obsessing over the bottom line, and start paying heed to the abominable, inexcusable business practices that Specialized uses to maintain market share.

    I understand that business is business. I also understand that many people are making their bike buying decisions based on very, very tight financial considerations. It follows that many are willing to ignore (or are simply ignorant of) Specialized's ability to royally screw little guys the world over when making their bike buying purchases.

    I ask that all whom are considering *any* bike purchase the next few years give a *lot* more thought to where that money will ultimately end up.

    Re: Specialized Fatboy newest info

    Shipment dates are from internal LBS site for specialized dealers on when bikes will ship.

    Sorry i missed post i thought specs and geo was new information.

    Also did not know if people knew the confirmed colors.

    Never understand the Specialized hate. Looking at Surly Pug Ops with my own build. new option for the market and new tire options always make me happier but to each there own.

    I have a better idea. I'll spend my money where I want, and you spend your money where you want.

    Most of us on this forum are adult males, and we do not need some weenie telling us how to spend our money. Nobody is telling you how to spend your money.

    And who exactly is the "little guy" anyway? Surly and Salsa? If I understand correctly, they are subsidiaries of the largest wholesale distributor in the cycling industry. Not exactly little guys, and competition is a good thing.

    Instead of hijacking a thread about a product launch, why don't you start a separate thread dedicated to your obvious hatred of Specialized? Wouldn't that be a better idea? Especially if you can provide some factual and logical justification for your hatred?

    Mike,
    This is a topic that interests me, and I'd love to hear some specifics. Feel free to PM me if you don't want to put it up here on the thread. Everyone should care about where their money goes when it leaves your wallet.

    Great forum. Even the moderators can't stay on topic. Especially when they sell competing products.

    Educate yourself is all I'm asking. Not telling, not hating, just asking.

    When a company (regardless of industry) spends more money on bullying the true innovators (via the legal system into giving up their trademarks, patents, dreams, and ultimately businesses) than most of the little guys *combined* see in total income in a year, something is flawed.

    I hate this bike. I hate the new AWOL too. Blatant copies. Add in the PF30 BB and I'm really annoyed. The only innovation coming from the big S is a new tire. I agree with Mike C, there's some shady stuff going on (ehhh continuing) and a little education would go a long way before throwing thousands at the monster.

    Sadly, as the Mongoose has proven, these new Spec bikes will soon be polluting our beloved forum.

    Umm "polluting our beloved forum"! Wow man, Unless you are somehow a stakeholder in ConsumerREVIEW, then I don't see how your 2 cents, or mine for that matter, account for anything. I get this vibe from posters as yourself, that the fatbike, is some type of too cool for the room subculture of mountain biking, that only people who own a Purple Pugsly, or Surly, Salsa whatever should be allowed into. Does it really affect your day that Specialized, or Trek is producing fat bikes, and is going to dilute down your coolness factor the next time you are on the trails...Or did somebody on a Mongoose get more looks from onlookers than you expensive rig. Either way, its kinda sad that there is so much dissent from a "community" of riders, that frowns upon the bigger companies are getting in on it. If it gets more people on bikes, who cares if they are riding a Mongoose, Fatback, 38Frameworks, or a Specialized. I have read about Specialized and their practices, but people should have choices regarding what they buy, and can choose to look into a companies practices if they choose to....or not. Your company has Cannondale listed on the website. Well Cannondale is owned by Dorel, that makes the Mongoose Beast, you dislike, and is sold at Walmart. Walmart is a far bigger threat than Specialized to consumers, yet you sell Cannondale.....Just sayin.


    Now since this is a thread about the newest info, I was told by the LBS that the Ground Control tires would be priced at $89....Yet I was at another shop, and they mentioned that nothing was even in they system yet. Keeping my fingers crossed for the $89 price.
