    I'd investigate the operators of the Nordic trail networks and see what their fatbike policies are.

    You'll be getting a perfectly fine FS bike at a great price and it will be a fine way to enter the realm of full suspension. The carbon frame and upgraded drivetrain would be nice, of course, but...

    Good on you for discovering the absolute joy of a dropper post. IMO, the darned things should be standard on every trailbike. (For one thing it would help drive the cost of them down.)

    For DH, I'm running the downhiller's go-to combo: Minion DHF 3C 2.5 front and rear. On the trailbike, I'm running High Roller II 3C 2.4s (changed from the 2.2 Ardents it came with).

    Bicycle Bluebook pegs it at about $2,800; but, of course, your local market may spot you a bit more for such a top-end ride. Good luck - - hope it nets you enough to help build the next dream.
