    Differences I can see from the standard to Expert model are, Cranks, brakes, pedals, spokes, bottom bracket and rear derailleur.

    Why the brake difference ? The Draco vs the deore ? Is mineral oil that much of an upgrade ? Why not xt ?
    I would have preferred a full shimano bike but thats my personal preference.
    Cant wait

    Hookless rim that will be interesting. I'm all over it for carbon rims to help strengthen the rim but on a fat bike? Not really seeing any advantages for that especially with the big variances in some of the tires and the uber low pressures.

    The cheap one's around A$800-$900 more expensive than the on-one fatty. If I was looking for a cheap entry into the fat space I'd pick up the on-one.

    stopped at my LBS to pick up some tubes and talked to the guys about the Fatboy. He said that he talked to the rep a couple days ago. He said they are going to be pretty sweet but what fat tire bike doesn't make you smile?

    To arrive November 2013 (just in time for the snow... well depending on where you live just in time)

    Pricing (approx)
    Base Model: $2,000
    Expert Model: $2,500

    and miss out on 4.8" tyres, 90mm light weight (ish) rims, carbon fork and much lighter bike. I would take the Fatboy anyday.

    If you are talking about Oz delivery? The bikes are listed on Specialized B2B at the prices listed and delivery for Dec 31, I am hoping sooner as they are only waiting on tyres

    Looking out for the tyres too, though in the meantime i looked up reviews of the 2.3 versions of the ground control and reviews mention that the tire has weak walls and needs high pressure.
    Lets hope that won't be the case with the 4.8 ones

    I wonder if these will actually make it here to Oz; I'll believe it when I see it. The price is less scary than I was expecting, and the parts spec doesn't look as shabby as expected. If they import more than 2 of each size and it is possible to see one that'd be a good thing! (I won't hold my breath though.)

    Where do you live in Oz? I would suggest visiting your local Spec store and express an interest. I f you live in South East Qld then come by Just Ride and I will give you all the details you need. We will have bikes on the floor as soon as they arrive

    ^ I'm in Sydney. While I'm interested I'm not prepared to pay upfront sight unseen, and the local store is in the CBD and probably wouldn't talk to me anyway since I'm not a suit...

    Once the bikes arrive I will be posting more info here. I f you are ever on the Gold Coast swing by and take a look. Surely it wouldn't hurt to give local dealers a call, they can't see what you are wearing then

    It's more the "you're not an Armani-suit-wearing stockbroker so there's no point me wasting my time on you" attitude that's the problem for me (CSC are especially bad in this respect). I'll wait and see what happens, and if anything makes it here - at least there's a little more hope now.

    The funny thing is that complete FATbikes have been available in Australia for years.

    Surly Pugsleys for almost 4 years now and Mukluks and Moonlanders for the last 2 years.

    The problem has always been that no dealer wanted to carry "stock". And the same will be true of Specialized or any brand.

    You'll get random local dealers with knowledgeable staff like shanesbw who will buy a couple for floor stock. But sadly, most stores will not want to carry stock. (most of them are still getting their heads around 29ers just as 650b rolls into town)

    I'm not being down on Specialized (I'm looking forward to getting some of their tyres for our bikes)... or their dealers. Just being realistic about the majority of Australian dealers. (regardless of the brand)

    Too true, stores dont realise how much interest in fatties is out there until you have one regularly sitting on the shop floor. We have people asking questions and showing interest every day now that we have fatties on show

    ^^ It may be that DW et al have had stock, but I've seen no sign of this apart from the one Salsa at CBD a few months ago. As you say, most shops have only had anything 29" in the last 6-12 months. It's kinda weird for me, as I would have thought the Internet ought to have cut down the "normal" 5 year lag behind USA/Euro trends here in Oz, but no...

    What this might mean is that many shops aren't doing too well these days, and just cannot afford to take chances on anything that's not guaranteed to sell; one guy I've known for decades said a couple of weeks ago that he'd just had his worst week/month in 30+ years in the business...
