Been out of the MTB scene for 12 years, had some nice rides in the past....Fisher Super CALIBER, Klein Mantra, and a bunch in between. Now 47 and realizing i have put on a good 25 pounds in these last 12 bike less years. Well i just stumbled on to youtube about these FATBIKES, really cool looking and i am digging the look of them. From looking at most post around they appear to be mainly for snow and sand, correct me if i am wrong. I will be doing some dirt trails locally and some pavement riding to some trails. What should i be looking for in a FATBIKE? How to they feel when riding? i have read SURLY is a really comfortable ride and i am leaning towards that company. I was really used to a hunched over ride in the past, but with age i am thinking a little more of a straight up riding style for comfort and enjoyment. Let me know what others recommend. My budget is around 2,700.00 MAX! Would it be a waste of money getting a FATBIKE now that spring and summer are around the corner? Thanks in advance.
