    29er FATBike & suspension coming in 2014

    I was just told that qwe may be getting 29er FATBikes and suspension options for 2014.
    Shocks are already here but FS Fatbike may be next and 29er wheels....OMG!
    Has anyone heard about this? Seems almost crazy overkill jumping the shark type of stuff
