No need for suspension. Snow cycling is slow-paced, and similar to riding on the footpath.

Ask Pinkbike: Loose Crankarms, Dumping my DH for an AM Bike, Direct-Mount vs 4-Bolt chainrings and Bike Vacationing in Finale
Sold my fadbike since it offered so little advantage to it over a rigid mtb w/low air pressure.. However, I must thank the adherents of this fad; years ago, when only a handful of us would regularly ride trails all winter, it was tough! It took around 4-6 days after a snowfall to get the trails to a rideable state. Now that every other dirt-roadie out there has picked up a fattie, the trails are like snow-covered footpaths after only a few days.

Video: Riding is Better when Groomed
I ride 2.4" on a rigid 29-er as my dedicated snow bike. In the past 8 yrs, I can count on one hand the number of days my fadbiking mates have been able to ride when I couldn't. Usually, the majority of packing down is from snowshoers/hikers, so it ain't the best.. I reckon the riding would be 10x easier if trails were groomed (imagine a soft, snowy bikepath) - but I'll never know thanks to the discrimination against mtbs on those trails.

Ask Pinkbike: Can Tires Be Too Wide? Should I Be Using All My Shock Stroke? Is 140 Millimeters Enough Travel for Enduro?
That rubber O-ring's correct name is 'Fun Gauge'. If it is maxed out, you had the maximum amount of fun on that section of trail. If it ain't maxed, go faster next time!

Salsa Bucksaw - Review
Sold my fatbike after 2 seasons because I experienced almost negligible differences between it & a rigid 29" in the snow. Still searching for conditions that prevent me from riding a 29" when fatbikes can...hasn't happened in over 20 yrs of riding in snow, the last 8 in CO. Sure, fatbikes are fun, but my DH bike supplies >9000 times more fun.

Can You Freeride a Fat Bike?
"...the fat bike trend that's taking the bike industry..." 'Taking', in present progressive tense? It jumped the shark here 3 winters ago. While everyone was whinging about the term 'Enduro', which I've heard only a handful of times, the prefix 'FAT-' is thrown around like Flunitrazepan during a night out w/Bill Cosby. Once the cold weather hits, I hear/read the term fat- at least a dozen times daily. They are fun to ride, but I still haven't seen them go places where my 2.4" tires can't, we all walk the same places. One exception is groomed trails, and the only reason I can't ride those is due to discrimination against tires 3.7".
