Love this bike. I've been riding it now for a year, almost every weekend over two winter season. I'm 5'10" and got the 20" GX build. It's my first fat bike so I don't have a lot to compare and I have only used it for winter riding with studded tires. It handles well, feels both solid and nimble....now moving on to steeper downhill single tracks and loving how the bike handles. Fatback hubs work great in colder weather with a few rides just above 0F. Great paint job, still sparkles like new but I'll admit winter trail biking doesn't exactly beat up the paint.

Weakness:

So far, I can't say I've noticed any weaknesses.

I bought a new FatBack Rhino in December of 2020. It is the 2021 model. 26 inch tires with Cake Eater studdable tires that I studded myself for icey road and off road conditions. This bike is solid and Beautiful. It performs so well in snow and on pavement. It is unbelievably lighter than my hybrid bike, yet it looks heavier because it is so solid. Love the disk brakes . They work very well and they give me a lot of confidence on snowy steep hills The gearing is incredible. Gear changing is smooth and seamless. Takes hills very well. The gearing on this bike is crazy. I have not had to leave my seat on any steep incline thus far... just drop it down spin and relax. I did a super steep hill last weekend I was going 4 miles per hour with easy peddling and great balance. Love Love Love this Bike!!! I Highly recommend the FatBack Rhino.

Weakness:

I have not found any weaknesses as of yet with about 300 miles on it so far. Oh okay, if this counts, since we are talking about weaknesses, the Cake eater tires I got on my bike have clear valve caps which are impossible to find when you drop one.

Light, snappy and responsive. I got the GX build with the upgraded carbon fork option, and the Johnny 5 tires. Love the new trail geo. Tubeless set up was a breeze FatBack makes a quality product.

Weakness:

One year ownership was March 1 2020..... no problems as of yet.

Strength:

Bike is light, quick and responsive. Floats well on sand. Handles single track with ease. Loves switchbacks. Climbs and decends difficult terrain without issue. Bike gives tons of confidence. Low rolling resistance with FATBACK hubs and Jumbo Jim’s. Can get second set of wheels and run 29 X 3 or 27 X 4.25. So two bikes in one. Get more technology for your money than from big brand names. FATBACK only makes fat bikes. Size 22 XL weighs in at 29.5 tubeless.

Weakness:

First bike came with a defective frame that was welded incorrectly in the rear. This caused the rear tire to run off center and rub against the down tube on one side removing paint. FATBACK replaced frame, but I was without bike for a week. Fork and frame paint no longer match. Not a huge deal, but speaks to their quality control.
