Fat Bikes for a Tall Man

What Fat Bikes would you recommend for a guy that's 6'5" with an inseam between 36" to 38"? I've been looking for one some time, but can't seem to find the right one for me.

But where can I find L and XL sized Fat Bikes? Also what brands make the best Fat Bikes at those sizes?

I have a Cannondale Fat CAAD 2 in a small size. However, they make larger sizes too. Here's the link:

https://www.cannondale.com/en/USA/Bi...d-570129e6ca6e

That particular model goes up to size XL. However, whether or not it would be large enough for you remains to be seen.

I'm not sure Cannondale makes the best fat bikes, but I'm more than happy with mine for my leisurely riding style.

Interestingly, Cannondale lists its fat bikes under its mountain bikes category. Other manufacturers may do the same.

Your local bike shop. Specialized, Trek, Cannondale, Giant and many others make bikes in those sizes.

Generally speaking any fat bike over $1200 will be good.

I have a 17 Farley 7 XL (21.5) that I love to death. I am 6'1" and it is big for me. I am actually getting ready to downsize to a 19". I rode a 19 a couple weeks ago and really liked it. The 21.5 is for a taller guy for sure. She is stable and rides good. I just like how the 19 was a better fit. I will be selling the 21.5 around August when the new 2020 comes out. That being said , if this was a 19 I believe I would keep it forever. Most fun I have had on 2 wheels! The 2019 in 19" are sold out. I work at a trek dealer P/T and already have my order in. In my opinion Trek really nailed the fatty. The 7 Is a great bang for the buck unless you are looking for a rigid fork.
