Strengths:    Excellent build quality - Well spec componentary. Stunning bike to look at - Pictures don't do it justice. Climbs everything you can throw in it's way. Handles like a normal XC/Trail bike. Bluto just adds to bike & ride.

Weaknesses:    Haven't found any yet.

Bottom Line:   
My 1st Fat bike I've owned but had taste by hiring a Kona for a day to ride the XC trials here in Wellington NZ. I also have a 2011 Rocky Mountain Altitude 50 and another 7 MTB's of various type - including a Salsa Juan Solo Singlespeed.

Ride the bike on all the trials I usually ride the other bikes and it's awesome once I got use to it - Climbs everything - no issues on the tight stuff either.

Carries & hold momentum with little effort. Still playing with tire pressures that best suit me and my rising style - Has VEE Tire Bulldozers fitted and recommended pressure are stated as 8-20 Psi currently experimenting with 9 Psi, seem to be sweet.

Out of box weight is exactly 15kg (converts to 33.06lbs.) Decided to weight the wheels for a laugh - front = 3.4kgs (7.5lbs) & the rear = 3.9kgs (8.5lbs).. Keen to go tubeless to see the weigh saving..
Honestly the bike doesn't feel it weight - rides a easy as my Altitude but with so much grip.

The Bluto is great - can't notice any flex - easy to set-up and dail in.

Having so much fun with the Blizzard - Surprises my riding mates on how I can keep up and out climb them..

Planning on adding a 2nd chainring and front derailer as want more speed as going to do the www.karapoti.com (50k) race next March wnat to blast arcoss the roller and downhills.

Retro Time: 1992 Blizzard restoration

Hey everyone, I acquired a 1992 Blizzard last year from a work colleague who needed to shed a few bikes. It needed some love but was mechanically and structurally sound. As the Blizzard was the bike I wanted but couldn't afford when I started riding in the early 90's, it was a no-brainer to restor ... Read More »
