To fat or not to fat

I've been living in a struggle for the last couple months. I borrowed one of these from my LBS this past summer. I had a good time on it. My wife rode it around a little on a trail close to Deerfield and I think she enjoyed it. The Mukluk was ridden on M-hill for a while to test it's abilities and all was well.

Now the problem is that I want to go fat. However, do I need to make this other purchase. Don't get me wrong, a bike purchase is never a bad purchase but I don't get the opportunities to ride my 2 other bikes as much as I'd like. There are dreams of snow biking dancing around in my head... but then again, when do I have time to go snow biking? I don't take the time to go regular biking, touring, mt. biking, etc... Should I wait?

I do have a fat bike - Surly Moonlander.

As far as your situation is concerned, good luck making it. I can say, unless you know you'll be doing some riding on snow that would be inaccessible to a regular bike, it's probably not worth it. I bought mine because I plan to do some winter, snow riding and perhaps enter the Arrowhead 135 bike race (some year).

What Snakebike said. I've test rode the fat bikes but my snow biking consists of street riding so I'm sticking to studded snow tires on a mountain bike.
