Replaced my alloy blue Bucksaw with the red carbon model... summer reverse mullet 29x3 / 27.5x3 & winter 27.5x4.8 / 26x4... Garbaruk 50T cassette and RD cage makes 11 speed great again... And no I'm not a Trumper...

A custom job (my second). Intended to be as nimble / playful as a fattie can be. It's not entirely bad, although I do miss the stability of the longer wheelbase bikes on steeper climbs. Needs a dropper post. Sorry for the lousy photo...

Only ridden in snow - unfortunately that's 5 months of the year.

Can I ask you fat bike aficionados a couple questions?

First, I don't have a fat bike but am seriously contemplating one. I'm looking around for bikes with similar geo to my 160 hardtail, namely something with ~65HT ~75ST, and I can't seem to find anything. Why is that? Is it just that fat bikes aren't intended for the same sort of riding as my hardtail or is it that they somehow ride similarly despite the seemingly conservative geo?

Second, my primary use case is days when its snowed enough that my current 27.5x 2.35 hardtail wouldn't be viable (goal is to not have a riding off season). I live in the CO front range which means it snows on and off through the winter usually just a couple inchs which then burn off in a week . I'm not aiming for long high country groomed rides. Just try to charge as hard as i can on my locals when they are covered in snow. What kind of tire width should I be aiming for?

TIA
