    Yampa handling feels "off" to me

    Not sure how to describe it, but steering is quite a bit different than any of my other mountain bikes (tallboy ltc, mukluk, etc).

    Curious if anyone has any thoughts fork spec is 468mm axle to crown with 45mm rake - and 70 degree head angle. Looks like maybe fork is shorter and less offset than salsas an example?

    Am wondering if I should try a new fork.

    Any thoughts?

    I've ridden several different fat bikes, including the Yampa. It handles pretty well as far fat bikes go.

    I had one and I thought the handling was awesome and the was my 5th fatty.

    edit: I also had a few people that borrowed it and they all thought is was spot on as well.
