    Took the FATBOY plunge... (and I am loving it)

    This bike is absolutely amazing! It is a very capable all around mountain bike. People get fooled by the size of the tires, but once they hop on it, they realize how fun it is! I go down and UP stairs, corner better than ever, climb tricky spots with ease... My Blur and Enduro have been collecting dust for the past month

    Cheers,

    Roger

    Wow! Those are advertising quality pics, my friend. Maybe not the one with the Salsa seat post clamp...lol.

    Fatboy looks really nice!

    I think every fatboy owner feels the same as you do, we may not all be as handy with the camera. But the bike is amazing and I can fully understand your enthusiasm. Now go put a bluto on that thing and some good breaks. Trust me.

    Looks good....enjoy. I chuckled a bit at the post clamp....when I got my Cannondale, I kept it completely stock for quite a while, other than throwing on a Salsa clamp.

    Nice bike and great pics! I feel the same way about my new Farley.
    Now I wish I had taken some good pics before getting it all dirty!

    Never too much love.

    New XT Brakes are on their way! This thing REALLY needs better stopping power Thanks for the advice!

    Did you break in the stock Shimano brakes? I've found the stock brakes to be pretty good once broken in. One finger stopping with very little fade.

    Yeah, I broke them in... But it is just not the same as the Shimano XT on my other bikes. Also, I may go 180mm Front and Rear!

    The bike was so new in that pic, that I had not even bothered to find the right seat height prior to taking the pics
