Ive been gutting to get a full suspension fattie and tested one before at a seller from PEI, 1st it was the bucksaw but apparently it barely fits 4" + up tires which i want to access on the deep snowy days. The farley ex on the other hand can fit 4.5+ up but price point still at my max point i think Mike’s Bike shop in NB can offer you a test drive of it and financing plan too.
Been searching and testing them for a while, but for me it boils down on to where you want to used them. Tried the blizzard on fight trail and front suspension, but only to feel sluggish and hard to roll on the 26x4 fat tires, guess even with a full suspension fattie it would still be hard rolling. Tried them at whopper it does really roll quick and easy over expose roots and granite but it is slow rolling and momentum dependent even brakes are hard to control on mechanical, hydraulic brake on -10 tends to clog too. For me im contented on my 27.5 full sus as my all rounder without snow and a dedicated fattie 26x4 studded for just rolling on snowy and icy days . The trails here are mostly designed for 27.5 blame the builders for this .
This time im contented with having wheel size options and saved me bucks over getting a brand new all rounder Fatbike full suspension which is for me over hype! Lol
