I often ride my Felt DD30 instead of my full squish. It is an aluminum frame with rigid carbon fork. It has 45Nrth 26 x 4.0 Van Helgas that grip to everything. Normally if I know I want to go full send on a trail I don’t know well I’ll take the fatbike to it first.
Hey I own two Felt bikes. I have a full suspension XC 29er carbon Edict and a DD30 fatbike. Both bikes have been great for me. I have have the full suspension for about 4 years and it has been able to take everything I throw at it. The fatbike plows over everything. I do wish they made a 29er with more than 100mm of travel though.
