Spirit Mountain: First Lift Access Fatbike Park on the East Coast- Video
This is true. It really depends on the snow conditions and temperature. Fat tires extend the range quite a bit.

Kelly Canyon in Idaho has been open for bikes with lift access in the snow for at least 3 years now. Much closer if you are on the West Coast. You can even ride a non-fat bike if you like.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
Yes, you have to disconnect the brake line at the lever, and push it through from the back. There is also an option to run it externally if you don't want to do that, or you are in a hurry.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
Yes, I am referring to the foam or rubber bumper that rides underneath the coil spring and on the shaft. Coil springs usually are more plush and have less seal friction and Air springs are significantly lighter. Pros and Cons to both. Looks like Fox may have found a sweet balance in the middle.

You can tune an air shock to be more or less progressive with air spring volume. Remember that coil springs are also progressive if you factor in the bottom out bumper. The CNC link is more progressive, yes. Honestly do not know where the final tune on that air shock landed.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
Without any direct experience with your set-up, I can't really offer a specific answer. In general, carbon wheels are stiffer laterally which provides a different feel. Also, carbon wheels have a lower inertia than heavier alloy wheels, and this can feel more harsh to some people over a heavier wheel that holds momentum better. Your results may vary.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
There are internal tubes that run the full length, so you will find that routing the cables through is quite easy.

What's Up With Aaron Gwin's Bike?
We went with 135 to keep the rear end as narrow as possible - for heel clearance and to tuck in the dropouts and rear dérailleur. Scraping your dérailleur against rocks and roots scrubs speed unnecessarily and you risk bending or losing your rder altogether.
