    I never saw a full suspention with "Fat Bike" tires on it, this is totally my style....I almost wanna buy it, I could destroy everything I touch with this bike....would be fun times.

    No kidding, would love to see more full suspention bikes with this configuration, most fat tire bikes I dont like, the market is still to small, either the bikes suck, are to expensive...or like in the case of Surley...nice frames, but I hate Surley parts, I've broken way to many Surley parts just riding around, not even doing anything extreme...and while they make one of the best fat tire bikes I stear clear of that companey untill they start making better parts. Again, I steel clear of fat tire becaise the marget it to small, because then you get into other issues, like specialized parts, bigger tires, wider hubs, wider BB....etc. I need more standardized sized parts for most of my riding,


    Mongoose however has a new Fat Tire bike that looks ok...again, I would need to dump a bunch of money into it just to get ride of the coaster brake....also, I hear the mongoose has cruiser geometry....I want something more agressive geometry wise. Just have t9o wait and see if the fat tire thing catches on like the 29er thing did.

    The reason you don't see full squishy's in fat bikes is because it's overkill. The fat tires already suck up all your pedal inertia, and adding suspension just adds to the problem. Not a great idea IMO. If I were to get a fat bike I'd go full ridged and as light as possible. My 2¢


    Jeffgothro, how's that bow and arrow hobby
    coming along? Because we all know the world
    needs more dudes stalking the woods stoned out of their mind carrying a deadly weapon.

    well thats you.

    if you took some time to research them you'll learn quick the fat bike market is growing and will become mainstream sooner rather than later. As it stands standardized parts is difficult due to popularity and market growth so if your waiting for standard you'll most likely miss the train.

    There's actually a thread about cracked Surly frames. If that was Toyota there'd be a catastrophic recall program. Could it be because too many fat people riding fatbikes thinking they were specifically made for fat people? And Cannondale gets the unfair monicker of Crackendale.

    yes, it was well-earned many years ago. they've been doing much better recently, but well-earned nicknames don't die out very easily.

    Come up with a catchy nickname for cracked Surly frames and it might stick just as well.

    Adding to DIRTJUNKIE’s comments, I’ve been riding fatbikes on technical terrain (loose steep off-camber rocky gravelly ascents descents boulders mud crap etc., but no snow yet) I will agree that full suspension is overkill on them. Why, just the other day (Sunday) I raced my fatbike (9:zero:7 “fatfukk”) in the Cat2 XC race at the Sea Otter Classic. Although I was late to the start, the bike handled just perfectly. I was able to gain position on the loose off-camber gravelly high-speed corners and also go up the steep stuff with perfect traction (also gaining positions in the process). Funny, when I got to the starting line, the 50+ group was getting lining up. Well, my group, the 43-44 group, had taken off several minutes prior. I still ended up 15th out of 44 entries. Even posed mid-flight for a fatbike wheelie somewhere along the course.
