    Fatboy Assault Mini BMX bike

    Wasn't sure whether to post this here in Alt bike culture, or the BMX forum. I figured it may fit better here. I just ordered one of these:

    2015 Assault - Glow | Fatboy Mini BMX

    The company is called "Fatboy" and they make two models of mini BMX bikes in several different colors. There are some youtube videos the company put out that show what these little things can do. I can't wait to get it put together!

    Here's the video that hooked me. I should be getting my bike this week. I'll post pics when it comes.

    If you spend time at the bike or skate parks, It should be a blast to take out a couple of times a year. I think the novelty of it will wear off quickly, but for the price you should get your monies worth of enjoyment out of it. Give us a rundown when it comes in.

    fatboy assault.jpgThe bike came this morning I got it put together fairly quickly. I have to say that my height (about 5'9") is about perfect for one of these. What I like is that where my feet and hands are at, I feel like I'm on any other BMX bike. It feels very balanced for such a small bike. And so far it's super fun. Throwing 180's, tail whips, table tops are so simple because of how small it is. tomorrow I'll hit the park and see how it feels there.

    I watched a video of those a couple weeks ago and I was left wondering, "what is it that these do better than a normal BMX bike?" Are they easier to do tricks on or something? I went to their website to see if there was any explanation there, but I couldn't find anything.

    They are just a "different" kind of fun.....if that makes sense. It's easier to commit to harder tricks because you're closer to the ground - meaning your falls will not hurt as bad. You obviously can't go very fast, so it's not a bike you just ride around town on. I have a small indoor skate spot that just isn't wide open enough for my full size BMX bike, but it's perfect for the mini.
