In weight maybe )
In ride? Nah. A fat bike seems to absorb a fair bit of stuff without ‘dive’ but has little rebound control either. Maybe he’s just found he can ride what he did on a 4″ / 26″ fs on a fat bike. I’ve ridden a fat bike all of about a mile of trails tho so no expert. That was enough for me..
Guy in bike shop yesterday described fat bike (Surley) as being the equivalent to a 4 inch full sus but maintenance free – is that a fair description? Makes the whole fat bike thing a little more interesting.
