Strength:

Incredible value for the money. With the additional 29x2.1 fattie slims wheel set it's a real 4 season bike.

Weakness:

Square taper cranks, all models ship with 175mm crank arms (vs 170mm for the smalls), stock tubes and tire liners are heavy but that's an easy fix, 1 1/8 headset won't fit most fatbike forks, 135/170mm spacing is becoming less used.

I picked this bike up to see if I would enjoy winter riding. Of course I did, but the most surprising thing happened after the winter. This bike never got put away. I found myself seeking out new adventure style routes- old forest roads, singletrack, road, double track loops I'd never bothered to ride on my 160mm trail bike. When my other bike was down for maintenance, I even took it to the regular trails and was surprised what a 4in tire could roll over.
