Careful boys, don't fall off that fence you all are precariously balancing on!
Since no one else will take the leap, here goes... (sarcasm fully enabled)
Would it be sacrilage to put Pace bouncers on? Hell yes it would. In your own words you have looked forward to riding and owning a classic Fat and now you want to sully the experience, dare I say, the design vision of one of the most heralded rides in vintage mtb history? What's up with that?
Surely you are not sincere in playing the age card at only 29? As I am quite a bit older, I can empathize with you wanting more comfort so your brittle bones do not suffer. If that's the case, I'll be glad to hook you up with a few extra comfy cushions to lay about the house on and you can send me the Fat so it can be ridden ridgid, hard, and balls out like it was intended to be.
As I like to tell my riding buddies...buck up or shut the f@ck up
(end of rant)
The previous commentary not withstanding...enjoy the bike in any fashion/shape/style that you want, it's all about having fun.
ps - rip off those V brakes and put on some real, weak, downhill fear inducing cantilever brakes...if you're man enough
