    Newbie question

    Hello from Florida! Just joined the forum and wanted to hello. We just moved to the beach and thought a fatbike would be a cool way to get some exercise. Iíve been researching bikes (budget under 1000) and kinda leaning toward the Framed Wolftrax but just noticed a used Kona Wo for $900 on Craigslist. I think itís a 2017 but not sure?! What are you opinions between the two bikes? Thanks in advance for your feedback!

    Fellow newbie here, greetings feom Cleveland! Both of the bikes you're looking at are good, I would suggest calling a few bike shops to see if they have any floor models you can ride around the lot to get a feel for them. If they know you're serious about buying, they won't mind a bit of window shopping. A bit, mind you.

    If you don't care about suspension and want something a tad cheaper and new I'd recommend the Mongoose Vinson. It's got great parts, an alloy frame and can be found under 600 dollars, but it may need knobbier tires for serious trail riding. Hope I helped, and good riding!
