    Help narrowing my fat bike choice

    I'm looking to pick up a do all fatty. It needs to stand up harsh winters and not rust out. I owned a mukluk for awhile and prefer that geometry to the pugsley and similar rides. I'm also hoping to use it in the summer to replace my current full suss 29er (giant trance), so hoping for light(er) with a Bluto setup in summer and a ridged fork to swap out in winter (I seem to remember an online retailer having a fatty that came with both). I'd prefer something with midlevel componentry.

    Anyone have ideas for the best way to do this on a budget?

    Since you like the Mukluk geo, why not get the best of both, a full-suspension + fat-tire bike? The Salsa Bucksaw!

    Rockyjo, which is that? Also, how does mn3 stack up to the bd selection? Are mainstream choices (907, salsa, etc) out of the question?

    Checkout the vid at approx 2:28, it's not really designed for sand or snow. Maybe a wider rim might help.
