    Highly recommend you go for a test ride.

    Update to my review: Took it out this last weekend on rocky/rooted/hilly terrain with a buddy riding his front suspension/hardtail 29er. It was a good move to go with a longer stem. The 6Fattie performed FAR beyond expectations, and I believe MUCH better than my friends 29. In trying to find ways to describe the ride, I settled on two:
    1) The FSR 6Fattie lets you do things confidently and safely that you otherwise shouldn't be able to do. You nearly instantly forget that you're on oversize tires, and at the same time, those oversize tires are giving you traction that cannot be overstated. I have no words to describe the ride!!
    2) There are no other ways to say it, ... The 6Fattie makes you a Mt Biking Superhero.

    On another note, I've mine set up for tubeless, and I highly recommend it.

    Pros
    Plush ride. The suspension and oversize tires really smooth out the trail. And the traction ... unbelievable. I read somewhere online that this forgiving bike increases your confidence, and they were right!

    Cons
    Stock stem is far too short. I suppose it would be fine if you were doing a lot of downhill, for XC riding I had to swap it out for a 110.
