Mud clearance is, as Rolls Royce would say, 'adequate'

Salsa Mukluk Carbon
Salsa Bearpaw fork (I had intended to fit a Bluto, but rode this fork a few times, didn't miss the suspension, so sold it on.)
Hope Headset and BB
Easton Havoc carbon bars w/ODI Vans Waffle grips
Thomson 70mm stem
!70mm reverb
Specialized Henge Saddle
X01 Drivetrain, Raceface Next SL crank swap between burgtec penthouse and XTR trail pedals
XT Brakes
Fat wheels are Hope Fatsno Hubs on 26" Specialized Fatboy SL 80mm (rebadged DTSwiss BR2250) with Minion FBF/FBR 4.8
Slim wheels are Hope Fatsno hubs on 29" WTB KOM i29 with Ardent 2.4 F&R

27lbs with fat wheels
24lbs with skinny.

Brilliant fun in fat mode, properly space hopperish on trails, you bounce/float down the trail, then brilliant in snow with the pressures all the way down.

In skinny mode its a pretty brutal xc racer, stupid quick on fireroads, climbs and smooth surfaces, pretty unforgiving of bad line choice, so its what i use for remembering how to ride properly, or at tamer trail centres. Fun commuter too!
