Also, it appears to be difficult to find a suspension fork with 150mm hub spacing. Everything seems to be 135mm. Don't even know if I'll do a fork yet. I really hate to ADD weight to the bike and I like the simplicity of a rigid bike. Need to work on my own trail skills first and go from there.

I would hold off on the susp fork. I wanted one at first, then slowly the want went away, especially with fat fork prices.

I believe this terrain would qualify for suspension, but....meh

This is my new/used one. It's a 2019 Specialized Fatboy with 26"x 4.6" tires and I love it.

This is the day I got it, excuse my finger.


This is it on the second day.
