Great bike and decent components for the price. Plenty of room to upgrade. XT rear derailuer with clutch, Race Face Cranks, and Swalbe Jumbo Jims 4.8" all stock.
Can get on Sale in the $1200 range too. Because it's my secondary bike, I'll leave Stock brakes and Shifters on until/if they brake! Only upgrade I would do is installing a Rockshox Bluto front suspension if you are going to ride the bike year round, which I do.
Mine came set up with Internal Routering for a Dropper Post too. Not that I will but it's nice to have the option.
Jumbo Jim tires do not feel too grippy in loose gravely terrain but I'm adjusting tire pressure to compensate. Still a work in progress.
If you want a solid Fat Tire Bike without spending a lot of money, this is the bike. I did my research from other comparable bikes and Scott Fat Jon gave me the best bang for the buck.
