I'm disappointed. frown.gif  I expected this to be a thread raving about how great fat wheeled bikes are at all ride applications and conditions. 

 

My 140mm underfoot downhill mountain bike shreds the Tour de France just fine!

I don't like fatter wheels... I like to get deep into the dirt not float on top of it.  wink.gif

and it takes less skill to ride on fat wheels; you just fly down the trails without turning.....

I'd rather occasionally have to ride a single speed or fixie down a steep, winding mountain path than frequently have to ride a downhiller 50 miles a day on asphalt. 

 

 

Oh and P.S..

Found this pic on our camera from a trip to Michigan.  Phil and I stopped at my old bike shop and these were sitting out, begging for a test ride. 

I was in a skirt so didn't try one out but it looked interesting.

Ever Heard of Winter Fat Bike Trail Riding in Alaska?

A friend and I made something similar to this for our BMX bikes many years ago.. Actually used pan head nuts and bolts, bolts on the outside.  Added a couple layers of duct tape in the inside over the screw heads before putting the tube in and pumping them up.  It really well on the snow and ice but was terrible on pavement hahaha.

 

 

 

Chains anybody?.

I wonder how unstable that thing (the original thing in this thread) is.  The driver looked really tense.  I noticed that he (she?) did not shift her weight at all.

It's a dummy, probably because of weight.

Look for the guy flying it with the RC remote.

I run Nokian Extreme 294's on my MB1 and Nates on the fatty. Nate's are better on everything but pure ice.
