Big slack beast....
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There's not much in original parts on my El Oso Grande (New components include 120 mm RST fork, X Fusion Hilo, 26/ 11-42 1 X 11 drive train, Maxxis Minion FBs, cheap but effective Formula C1, etc.)

The bike, as is, is very adequate and much lighter. The FSA 26-36 is a good basic set-up, the TRP Spykes are probably one of the best mechanicals that I've ever used and the Chaoyangs are good, fat snow tires.

I'm 6' 2" and am on a LG....with the enormous tires, a MD would've probably been large enough and easier to stand over.

A very good intro level fat bike that can be built up with improvements and grown into.

The only negative I have is that it seems heavy.....but it only seemed really noticeable with the addition of the suspension fork and dropper post

I'm really not sure why these pedals are so popular or why there is so much praise for them (on this site and others)

I piled one of these into a rock trail riding and completely broke through the pedal. It was a hard strike, but I'm not sure that it should've gotten as mangled as it did for the hit that it took.

As for performance, they are OK, but nothing exceptional. They have pins and a large platform. Big deal. There are a number of sub $50 platforms on the market that are just as good or better.

$80 (on sale) is a lot of money for a pedal, I think my money would've been better spent on something else.
