    I've seen some in the snow here in Steamboat, but mainly under factory workers. Too expensive vs. the carbon Fatbkes that are available. But it is still a Moots and looks great, If you can afford one.

    It looks to be an 18, or maybe 19. I don't really take pics of bikes for sale at bike shops.

    Good pics here:
    Moots » FROSTHAMMER » OVERVIEW

    And you know how nice the welds look.

    Thanks. I was curious about the build, but it is the wrong size anyways.

    Nice. Looking to buy a frost hammer end of summer/early fall. Would like to have this built up ready to go for fall and winter. Any feedback on this bike is appreciated.

    Sure. I've owned a MX Divide for 2 years and its now for sale. This bike is incredible. No need for a full suspension bike anymore. Frosthammer weighed in at 23.4 lbs which is amazing. Climbs easy, downhill forget it. Crushes rocks, logs, anything you throw at her. After about an hour into my first ride my confidence of going over things has tripled what it was. I've been running 10 psi in the tires. Tight single tracks she holds well. There are some little changes in my riding technique you have to change/get used to simply because riding a fat bike is a little different than riding a "boring" mountain bike. The Bluto makes a world of difference compared to no front suspension in my opinion. I test rode the Borealis, Specialized fat bikes which are fine in their own right. I wanted to stick with Moots because I'm loyal. I believe that investing in something made in the US by hand is worth something and I really wanted Ti. Love love love this bike. Wow.
