Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Rode one of these (22") a week ago for a brief test drive. Took some getting used to the 4" tires and how soft they were. Handling, accelerating and maintaining speed weren't all that much fun. But that's not what it's about, it takes to the off road and normally unride-able surfaces and obstacles like riding over curbs a cinch though. Tires weren't really knobbies, but had spider patterns on them.

That's because we don't have a dedicated Fat Bike forum on here! Head over to MBTR for the latest scoop!

What in the world is a fat bike? Is it some crazy all terrain bike or something?

Its a bike with super fat tires - 4" in width and its used for bombing beaches, rocky trails and snow impassable to ordinary bikes.
The one I rode was loads of fun in terms of going anywhere. I saw a video of the Surly Pugsley riding thru top bar submerged deep water, that thing will float too. The place I test rode it at was an X-Games store in Port Orange, FL, they had a pool, but I wasn't dressed to ride the bike into the pool and tried to float it or see how deep I could ride it ? Maybe with a snorkel or scuba, you could go really deep with it ? Had I been prepared & allowed to, I would have tried the pool out too.
surly pugsley. Now that bike I want.... if i don't live in nyc :(
Got to finally ride a Pug last night. All I can say is that I am hooked. Really want to add a fat tire bike to my collection this winter.
