Fat Bike for my kiddo
My son asked for "one of those bikes with the fat tires" for his birthday. He will be turning 12 and is growing taller by the second. Im thinking possibly a 24" kids bike, or a very small framed 26". Due to his gaining altitude at an alarming rate, I don't want to have to take out a mortgage on a fat bike, but my pride just won't let me go to Wally World to take the Huffy Challenge. Im fairly open to buying a frame and building it up myself. Looking to keep it under $500 total. Anyone have a recommendation for manufacturers in this range? Or, possibly a place that sells last years models for a decent price? I'd give preference to steel, but aluminum isn't a deal breaker. I've been monitoring local craigslist and offer up. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
