The _revelations_ in this article are fantastic. It makes me feel like I’m back on my first fatbike ride, wondering if these Farley seatstays will actually rub a hole through my pants. I hope the conditions persist or your travel schedule permits you to test the suspension and tubeless setup on snow.  My experience (n+1 revelation) has been that 4” tires and snowpack make suspension unnecessary. The trail is a moving average of its summer self once packed and ridden. Roots and holes get covered and filled enough to make the weight addition a poor trade-off. Also, once the thermometer gets to single digits on the F side of the scale, such things don’t work that well, anyway. Sand may be a different beast, so happy testing.
