    G29 SS vs Deadeye Monster

    Hey everybody


    I'm wanting to order a bike this weekend and am trying to decide between these two. As of now it's a $50 price difference, which id like to remove from the discussion and let's pretend they are the same

    I realize there is a ton of info on these bikes, I've read lots of threads today. As far as fat bike vs 29er it seems everyone says have both, most say fat bike if you can only have one. I'm riding in St. Louis, seems to be mostly rocky, rooty trails with a tiny bit of snow. Not enough to be concerned

    I also want to use the bike for single track, paved riding, and hopefully a longer rail trail trip. Nothing competitive, don't care about speed, only fun

    From a reliability and quality standpoint, are they roughly equal?

    I'm leaning towards the fatty

    Thanks!

    They should be. Without taking the time to look at the specs, they should be about identical except got the wheel/tire sizes if I remember correctly. Given your listed use, the 29er would be more efficient and let you travel farther in a given time, which may be a benefit. Fat bikes give you more stability in sketchy terrain and more float on soft stuff in general. It doesn't seem like you'll really be using too much of that capability. But, if your heart is set on fat, go for it.
