Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Less than $700 price
According to the sticker, the aluminum frame is built for off-road conditions with jumps
VEE Mission 26x4.0 tires
Hydraulic brakes

Cons: No fork suspension (at least).
On dry pavement, it feels like the hydraulic brakes are not enough. We'll see how it goes this winter.

Recommendation: Great entry level bike. Very versatile all around bike, but if you want to shred through the trails, might as well stay with a regular 26", 27.5" or 29" mountain bike. I would recommend this bike if you plan on riding it most of the time on sand or snow.

Model/Year: 2014

Pros: Hydraulic brakes
Strong frame
Practical frame design
Comfortable riding position
Conversation starter

Cons: Ordered online and under warranty repair issues can be a hassle.
Like all fatbikes, you have to be accustomed to adjusting the tire pressure on different riding conditions

Recommendation: I have owned this bike for 3 weeks now and for the most part, the bike worked great. But last week, the rear hub broke and finding a replacement rear wheel set or getting warranty information from where I ordered it from (Bikes Direct) is very difficult. The bike has great potential, but it brought down by the small sub-par components.
