I really appreciate your feature about the Bucksaw and the Farley here and I really like Fatbikes for trail- and snowriding in winter and sometimes even in dry summer conditions! I have ridden a Bucksaw over one season and I am on a Canyon  Dude now. Especialy rergarding the Farley I have some thoughts: The Farley EX seems to be a nice bike on first glance. It looks good, it is available in middle Europe (Salsa not so much) and it is relatively cheap. But: while regarding to your article it may look long, in fact it is very short! A wheelbase of 1156mm on an XL is ridiculous!  I really hope Trek stretches that geometry by at least 50mm (better 70-80) and slackens the headangle into the 67-68 degree region. A Fatbike is not a Race Enduro but a mouthfull of the long, low, slack cool aid would not hurt them either.  Every Fatbike I know (except the Pole Taiga and Kona Wozo) have that old school geometry. This bike category looses a big part of its potential this way!
