Are we seeing the future of full suspension fatbikes taking shape, I think so. Well the team at Salsa are working on it right now!
You can follow the link below and post your comments on there website to help them develop the wheel travel and rim & tire width that you would like to see.
- 100mm – wheel travel front & rear.
- 3.7/3.8 tires.
- 82mm rims maximum.
Anything wider like 4.5′s on 100mm rims would make no sense to me for a FS bike.
Here’s a quote from the article: “The inspiration for this project came from numerous people within our team (in a strangely timely convergence actually) and from the fact that fatbikes are being ridden all year long as opposed to being strictly thought of as snow or winter bikes. There is such tremendous capability within these machines that we wanted to have some full-suspension prototypes built to explore the concept further.”
