I would guess the over all quality will be much better than the Charge Cooker, BD and other brands that sell in that ball park and less. If I didn't already have my Pugs, this would be my first fat-bike .. great value for that price point.

The Charge has a very nice frame, offset but still very nice. What makes it a low price bike is the equipment on it.

I am willing to bet that is for Frame set only. It is a nice looking bike.

I'd be willing to be the MSRP is for a frameset only.

I am kinda interested to see how many folks stick with 170 vs 190...

Glad to see it's not just dying off as some had predicted.

THere's still a lot of flux in fatbikes.
Yep. "Add salt according to taste."

I like the looks of that thing, no surprise considering it is from a master.

Fad bikes, my ass.

I own a Charge Cooker Maxi, and think it's a great bike for the price point. HOWEVER, I can definitely see myself ordering a Ritchey frame, great quality and I love to support smaller companies...especially Ritchey!!

Thanks for the info!!!

Yup! And why I went with the Pugsley instead of the Charge when ordering through REI. The Pugs was a little higher, but considering the components .. the Pugs was a far better deal.
