This bike is so much fun! I have much more traction with the huge tire footprint. When climbing my rear wheel slips less and going downhill I'm faster than my 29er. Steering might take a little bit of time to get used to but after a couple of rides I had no problem with it. The big tires and low pressure it gives a very smooth ride, I notice my wrists and shoulders aren't sore after riding rough single track. Running lower pressure (4-8 psi) you won't be as fast as other mtb on the flat areas but you can just plow through rooted/rockey areas. I have six bikes and I ride the Moonlander the most throughout the year. If I had only one mountain bike to ride the trails all year long it would be the Moonlander!
The Surly Moonlander is a bike of a different breed. I could say a lot of good things about it, but you won't know what it's really like till you actually ride one! Even people who don't ride comment on the size of the tires and the sparkly paint, so you are sure to be noticed!
