    If you live in an area that offers beaches or snow, the Salsa Mukluk is a very capable fat bike built for adventure. And don't sell it short, it's just as capable on normal riding conditions.

    Pros
    - indestructible
    - solid spec and virtually unstoppable on all types of terrain and conditions
    - accelerator of fun
    - balanced geometry

    Cons
    - the required conversation with your significant other when justifying why you need this bike

    Tthe one I road had front suspension, and oh baby Jesus was it fun! I have to admit I was a bit of a skeptic about fat tires, especially for when there is no snow on the ground. The Mukluk has changed my opinion, it was a lot of fun, it was surprising fast, and those tires just give a slight floating sensation. If you are going over smaller roots and rocks or to drop downs and jumping over rollers. It's like you are not touching the ground it's like you are skimming it.

    Pros
    fun, light, components

    Cons
    price

    Mukluck (2015) - Small (15")
    True to its size. I am 5'-2" and find that it fits well. Awesome to ride. It's a perfect 2nd bike to my full suspension xc. I'm finding that tuning tire pressure is the key to really experiencing its full potential. I started with 15psi and have aired down to 8psi. Its great getting to adjust the air to your conditions. Its really a well versatile bike capable of so much while still being a pure and basic bike that can take a beating. Also there are many accessories available.

    Pros
    Great components, well built frame and paint, good geometry. Fair price if bought on sale or at a discount.

    Cons
    Pricey at retail cost.
    No complaint yet.

    Pros
    Comfortable geometry, goes through anything, will accept multiple wheel sizes and configurations.

    Cons
    A little heavy, but what do you expect from a fat bike.

    I bought this bike used recently to replace an old hardtail and try the whole fat bike thing. I love it more than I anticipated. It just works great everywhere. Fun, fun, fun. It brings one back to why you started mtn biking!

    Pros
    Solid, versatile frame. Good overall component spec. Great handling all a rounder.

    Cons
    Stock tires/tubes are heavy.

    I love it. Just a big bad ass bike!

    Pros
    Nice big light weight frame. Mine is blue powder coated and I have beat the crap out of it but there are virtually no scratches.

    Cons
    Vertical dropouts make single speed life difficult. I don't have the alternating dropouts either this model is from 2012.

    awesome bike! I have yet to do much upgrading, other than installing an MRP bashguard when I built it up. I will be going tubeless soon. It took a little getting used to the stiff shifting, but it always shifts, even at -10f. The clutch in the X9 is a really nice touch. I got to do a lot of the buildup at my bike shop, and was very impressed with the quality of the parts. especially all the enduro bearings. stock build plus basic spd pedals and the MRP bashguard was 32lb, 10oz. Definitely worth the extra money over the Muk3 when you get the drilled rims, more supple tires, and better shifting. I love my fatty

    Pros
    FAT
    120 tpi Nates
    x9 clutch derailleur

    Cons
    sram shifters are very stiff

    This is my primary ride now. Once you go fat, you never go back!

    Pros
    Plows over everything, light for what it is, good component selection

    Cons
    SRAM X7 grip shifters (upgraded to X9 triggers)
