I like fat bikes too.

They have an advantage when you come across sand or mud. A lot of people use them in snow too.

I also like them because I am tall and heavy. The fat bike tires result in the handlebars being higher. They are even higher if you have front suspension. Fat tires also spread the weight out more for heavy people, reducing the likelihood of breaking the wheel.

For people who only ever ride on good roads, who are not tall or heavy, fat bikes can be fun, but regular bikes can do the job.

Ummm no. That's a function of bike geometry not tires. 26" fat = 29er skinny.

You can do anything with the Fat tire bicycles. Any type of riding is possible. I still say if I only had one bicycle it would be a fat tire bike.

They are the pinnacle of fun as well.

Some of yous need to get your mind out of the gutter

Redline Grizz

Walmart BSO but It’s an absolute blast and as fun as my more expensive MTB’s.

Heavy = yes
mechanical discs = yes
cheap wheelset = yes

but still so much fun

I've never come across that one for some reason, what are the spacings for the wheels.

Not sure. I’d have to measure the hub spacing but the wheels are 26er. Wheels, tires and hydraulic front brake would really put this thing over the top 👍

pretty kick butt for a bike shaped object
