Price: MTBR Lists the MSRP @ $1099 but it is always sold for much less. It's one of the most inexpensive fat bikes.
Drivetrain is smooth
Not obscenely heavy,

Weakness:

Tires are not supple (though they are pretty tough)
I am a heavy rider, so the cable brakes and 160 rotors are pretty weak. I don't want hydraulic because I ride even in severe cold. I will upgrade the rotor diameter.
Stock handlebars were way too narrow. I replaced that shortly after getting the bike.
No tubeless rims

I complained to my wife that I was dreading winter because I wouldn't be able to ride. She surprised me with this bike as a Christmas gift. Other good fatbikes were not in our budget. I rode it the entire winter and now I'm riding it year round. It is so grippy and sure footed it is just plain fun. I am going to sell my 29er (or maybe keep it as a guest bike). I've upgraded the handlebars and will upgrade the brakes. When it comes time to change the tires, I will go a little better set but it's not so bad that they need upgraded right away. This is a very fun bike

Strength:

good bike at a great price. Everything is high quality aluminum alloy. shifts great and the tektro novela brakes work well. even the pedals are good so far.

Weakness:

the Vee Mission tires are not good in snow and do tend to self steer at 10 psi or lower.

This bike was exactly what i was looking for to ride throughout the iowa winters. couldnt see buying an expensive fat bike to take out on the salt laden streets with snow. I like that it has a 2 gear front crankset that will climb very well in small gear but has enough gearing for bike path where the Vee Mission tires at 15 psi work great.

Strength:

Solid frame, not too heavy for having those big tires, handles well, pedals uphill really well, fast & fun on fairly manicured trails, tires grip well, great bang for the buck!!

Weakness:

Tektro mech disc brakes do not stop worth a crap, handle bars & stem cheap, shifters basic (not precise), cannot do tubeless with these tires (wire bead), a handful on rock gardens

First A great bike for the money!!! Out of the box pretty descent. With a few inexpensive upgrades, this bike rocks!! Replaced brakes $80.00 to tektro Draco hydraulics (80.00 huge difference), nxt handlebar, stem & grips(80.00). Now this bike rocks & handles and brakes like a champ. Will upgrade 2 by 8 to a 2 by 10 gears plus better quality shifters. Also will replace tires to folding (so I can go tubeless) only when I wear these out This shud make this Fatbike fantastic.

God bike for the money

Weakness:

Tires are a bit heavy.

I bought my Monster last August and so far I have around 1200 miles in it, It handles very well In all the riding i do. I ride year round and love it in the dirt. This bike's 26" x 4.0" tires handle both the trails and streets excellently. I do plan on changing out the tires and tubes for something lighter to improve handling and .reduce the weight of the bike.
