Strengths:    My first fat bike. I bought the 6.3 because it was priced below 1k. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Chaoyang tires on it since the reviews do the vee rubbers are not good. The seat was also a nice stock feature. Love the black frame (looks even better with mud on it. The step over convenience with the angled top tube is nice and the components are decent. It is also only 31lbs.

Weaknesses:    Pedals (replaced with clip in platforms for use with boots or my mtb shoes). Otherwise this bike has no weaknesses.

Bottom Line:   
Have ridden in deep mud and deep snow and can't say enough about the Bigfoot 6.3. Can't wipe the smile off my face either - bought two of them for me and my 17yo son to ride in the cold colorado winter. So far they've held up strong to some pretty solid punishment. We lowered the pressure to 3 psi in the 6" snow and that seemed to be about right. We could have ridden 2 psi, but we're still getting used to the whole thing. Shifting is smooth, bike feels solid. I highly recommend the Bigfoot if you are in the market for your first fat bike.

Strengths:    Excellent geometry, stand over clearance, hydro brakes, good looks, value, gearing, misc mounts.

Weaknesses:    Tires, pedals, saddle

Bottom Line:   
My first fattie. Bought due price point and desire to ride moe in winter. The bike was sold out and I had to have one shipped in. At 6'-3" it fits me great (rode a L but XL is better). Outstanding geometry. Loads of clearance when your foot sinks down 18" in the powder off the trail. I would much prefer this geometry over a Pugs or similar straight top tube bike. I own a Crosscheck nothing against Surly

Hydro brakes rock! Budget $200 for better tires. I'm riding Lou in ft and Nate rear. Great setup! Also a Thudbuster post makes it a posh ride. These bikes should come with one as an option. Also Saint pedals resolve the cheap stock ones. Pretty dialed in now, but that all adds to the cost. I've not tested it but with shaving side lugs a Lou might fit in the rear. Tight clearance on chain though I'd guess. At 185lb the Nate is almost all I'd need for rear traction in out N Utah snow. But the Lou is great up ft. Both are 120tpi and the ride is good one frozen footprints.

Also, MSRP is NOT $1700. This bike is priced really well vs the alternatives. With better tires in 2015 it'll be very popular. No rusting with alum frame and a sweet deal. Kudos to Norco (and to Misdoula Bike Source, who was awesome!).

Btw, this was the most fun on a bike since my first mtb in 1984 (a Lotus from Wamsley's in Motown WV). :) Slow but just darn phat phun!

GPS & Bigfoot...common MTB misconceptions

Just wanted to spew a couple MTB related misconceptions I've had to do double takes on recently. Hopefully only one or two shredders will be enlighted and the rest will be in agreement or at least be entertained by refuting responses. "GPS does not work deep in the forest under the tree canopy."
