      HI, I’m buying a new fatbike, the best in my area are the Scott Big Jon or the Felt DD30 or DD70.

      I used to ride bmx 15 years ago.  I’m into technical single track, jumps, roots rocks and not much stamina since my desk job.

      I’m 6ft3 250 looking at a 21″ or XL frame.

       

      Any thoughts on either brand?  Geometry?

      I reviewed the Scott Big Jon and I liked it so much, that I turned around and bought it:

      I’d say those two are pretty close and would give the nod to which ever I could get the better deal on. Although I don’t generally think of rigid frames as good for jumping, and fat tire bikes do not turn as quickly at speed as do regular and + size tire bikes (and seeing as you rode BMX I find it hard to believe you won’t be going fast).  And over rocky stuff I find a dropper post invaluable. in the same price range there is the Specialized Fuse Comp 6fattie with + size 3in tires, dropper post, 1×11 you might want to look at.
