    New question here. Looking for a full suspension fattie

    I'm looking for a full suspension fattie, possibly:
    Salsa Bucksaw, Trek Farley EX8, or a Lenz Fatillac. I'm looking for sizes Medium or Small.
    If anybody is selling one, please let me know.

    Both Bucksaw and Farley Ex’s are getting hard to come by. Another option is the Framed Montana:

    I love that proudfoot uses a headset as the suspension pivot; makes a lot of sense to me. -- end sidetrack

    I'd Call $3500 for a steel frame "Moots" expensive, they do look like a nice bike though.

    Grats man! You will love it! I rode my Farley Ex8 this week as a 29+'er (3.0"). It was fun, but think I like the traction and overall bad-assery of the 27.5" x 3.8"s much better to be honest. The TFEX8 is such a versatile bike.

    I agree, and plan to probably use bigger tires in the future as the bike will be used mostly by my wife.
