The Fat-Moth is absolutely the best handling bike I have ever ridden and is my choice for all the knarly riding here in the mountains of VA and the east. The geometry is as quick and responsive as any regular 29er but with the added benefit of rolling over anything in the way with the 29er 3.0.
I have never rerated having this bike in my stable, really!!! Some folks wonder if it is heavy and sluggish, I say no, not to me. I have 1×11 and dropped the front chain ring to 28. I have not pushed this bike on climbs that I didn’t push a carbon 29er dually. – Marshall
