    New fat bike

    I finally ordered my first fat bike today. Getting the spec fatboy trail. Only thing I can find is the travel on the bluto that it comes with. Not sure if it's 80mm or 100mm. Regardless has any one put a 120mm on it and if you have how does it ride. My normal bikes are a 2016 fsr 29 stumpy 140/135 and a chromag rootdown with a 150 on it. So I'm use to and like slack. Ant input will be nice. I already know that the rear hub is junk. So let's skip that debate

    Bluto is 80mm stock on the Fatboy Trail.

    The rear hub is different than previous year's Fatboys and hopefully more reliable.

    I know it's not slacked like I like. But I'm getting a killer deal to try one out and see if I will even like it enough to keep long term. I mainly looking for a snow and mudd bike for backwoods riding this time of year. My ideal fat bike on paper would be the chromag fat bike. Just don't want to spend that much on my first one.
