I just finished building my Fatboy pro. Unfortunately I broke one of ribs riding yesterday so won't be able to try it out for a little bit

Not a fan of dropper posts?

I went through a corner too fast and landed on the only rock in the middle of the trail. Just bad luck I think.

Nope. Completely unnecessary, imo. Weird spec on a short travel racey hardtail fatty. Throw a thomson on there and call it good. Fvcking love the color. Not into front sus either, but the bluto looks awesome on there. Not gonna lie.

It happens. Best wishes on speedy recovery!

dmo, we will be glad to take it out for a ride while you're healing up...

Great looking bike! Fork looks sharp on it, too.

Heal quickly and let us know how you like it.
Been there, done the rib job. 3 fractured, 5 dislocated. Sheer pain is the result.

I was able to ride it around my driveway but that's about it. How long did it take you to recover? Bending and twisting are pretty painful now.

Dmo,

Was a little less than 2 months. Then a trip to the chiropractor to learn that I had the dislocated ribs. Til then, I had no idea that ribs could become dislocated. within minutes the Doc had 'em reset. Like a sack of concrete lifted off my chest and a huge relief.

Damn, no we don't get to ride it!
