    To those with multiple forks, do you actually switch for snow?

    I bought my Canyon with carbon fiber fork last year and pretty quickly put on the Mastodon. This year I've added Bud and Lou 4.8s in preparation for more snow and debating going back to the CF fork to save a bunch of weight.

    Curious what others do that have added suspension post purchase or that have options.

    Admittedly, I used the fatty 50% of the time this year, even in the summer.

    I would switch when I had a Bluto/Carbon but now I have a Mastodon and it's been so great in cold weather performance I just leave it on.

    I will probably take my Mastodon off my Otso for the Fat Bike Birkie to save weight, but otherwise the Mastodon will stay on.

    Have to take off the suspension to fit the 2xl, so I've done that once, and then put it back on a week later. It's not a big deal, but not sure how much I wanna do it still. Prolly stick with a 4.8 that fits.
