Pros: Dependable all around bike for single track, gravel and medium tech. Came with 650b plus wheels then expanded my horizons with a 80mm, 26" FAT bike wheel set up. Haven't run it with 29'ers yet or 650b Fatty's. Soo many options not enough money. The naked carbon lay up instead of paint is a cool cosmetic feature. With Fatty's 26lbs not bad....

Cons: Pivot really should've added a dropper post option guess that'll be another out of pocket option for the future like the 29'er wheels. Shocked Pivot doesn't offer an accessory wheel & component option for the Les Fat.

Recommendation: Bought the 2017 model and still rocking it with intentions to add a 3rd wheel set to the mix.

Pros: Solid build kit: the sram guide breaks are my new favorites! Even the entry level guide r is as good or better than Shimano xt! They modulate so well. The 1X drivetrain is geared perfectly. Great trail handling for aggressive riding. Corners breaks manuals all exceptionally well. This is a great trail bike with fat tires.

Cons: No dropper. It as light as you'd expect for the cost.

Recommendation: Got the x01 build with the wheel upgrade (saves a pound) then went tubeless and put carbon bars. Weighs in at 27.4. Not as light as other bikes that cost $5500 but very respectable and feels totally great on the trail. Being able to run 4 different wheel sizes plus run single speed is a great option if you'll use it. All around a super fun trail fat bike.
