Fatboy or Farley

I am currently saving for my Fat Bike and at first it was between the Surly or the Trek but wanting it to be light so I chose the Trek and which one so I know how much I need to save.

Then the other day I was in a bike shop getting my Gravel Bike fixed and I see this beauty: Fat Boy from Specialized.

Now I swore of Specialized due to them leaving a bad taste in my mouth, but since the pros still use them maybe I just had a dud.

So I ask you fell Fat Bike members/owners:
Farley or a Fat Boy

That is the question!

Wow no replies. WHATEVS!

Anyway last night looked at the details and money in my savings account for big purchases; I will have more than enough in May which is my birthday. That is the buying date.

Question is what I want will be available.

Both are good bikes. Try both and see which one feels better to you.

The Fatboy has a slightly steeper head tube angle which is better if you only use it on snow during the winter.

I have a Fatboy and love it.
