Now that I'm eyeing fat bike offering for my winter commute (I am waiting for Felt) I discovered this unknown (to me) Haibike:


I wonder when will this puppy be available in the USA?

it remains to be seen if I need a front suspension with the soft tires providing enough bounce. I generally hate shocks but will get them if its the right tool for the job.

I seen several posts from disappointed fatbike owners and smaller e assist setups. Those wheels/tires are big and heavy and have a lot of drag. You need a some real power to not be a slug on one. Much less in sand or snow. I think Bafang is the right choice for a fatbike.

highly doubt youll need the bluto. i find my neo xtrem with front shock a much rougher ride than my bikes direct boris x7 with no shocks. the tires make for quite a comfortable ride. you could always add a thudbuster post afterwards too.
