I've ridden a fair amount of fat bikes in my time (my neighbor is the buyer for a bike shop and has access to like 7 fat bike samples), but none of them have had what I consider modern/good geometry. My local trail system grooms the single track during the winter, so I ride 12 months a year, but I usually just take my normal trail bike on winter rides as oppose to a fat bike because I can have more fun due to the geometry and full suspension, and the "skinny" tires work just fine on the groomed snow. Are there fat bikes out there with, for instance, 67° head tube angle, 340mm BB height, wide bars, and maybe a dropper post? (I know bars and a post can be changed after the fact, but it's nice if they come stock)

RSD mayor v4 is close to modern geo, with 67 deg HTA.

thanks man. For future reference to others, I put less-than signs in front of 67° and 340mm, but for some reason they disappear when I post it.

Have you considered a Rocky Mountain Blizzard? The new models have a 67 degree HTA, dropper post, wide bars, etc. I use a 2016 Blizzard as my year-round bike in Squamish and it handles the trails here just fine.

Go custom through Marino?

Proper LLS with fat tyres would be ace!
