Aluminum Fat Bikes with Powerful Disc Brakes Gravity Monster Mens Fat Tire Bicycle 26″ x 4″
- Size up for long upper body/legs, higher handlebars/longer bike.
- Size down for short upper body, more aggressive/ lower bars.
- The hottest trend in the mountain biking world right now.
- Their giant, “fat” tires roll over virtually anything, which makes them an ideal winter mode of transportation.
- Super wide tires “float” over snow and sand…the fastest bikes you’ll ever ride on mud, bogs, deep sand and snow.
- Most average fat bikes weigh between about 30 and 40 pounds.
- Compare specs, aluminum fat bikes with similar parts will weigh the about the same.
- Awesome in rough conditions, deflate the tires a bit for awesome traction.
- Compare Fat Bikes to the difference between a car and monster truck SUV.
- Some local bike experts dubbing fat bikes as the all-around mountain bike of the future.
- How are these Fat Bikes being sold for this Great Price?
- Other similarly equipped Fat Bikes cost over twice as much.
- I am 6’5″ and have never had a frame this big (22″) or tires this big.
- I bought it to try out a fat bike and convert it to electric.
- It is now my favorite bike ever and I don’t want to ruin it by converting it to electric.
- I am 45 yrs old and haven’t enjoyed bike riding this much in 20 years.
- I plan to add a third front chainring to get even more speed.
- It is very easy to upgrade components on this bike, but it is ready to go.
- I got the black one in the 18″ frame and I am 5’11” tall.
- I wanted an aluminum frame and at minimum 4130 Chromoly steel forks.
- The reason I did not choose the Mongoose Juneau is because of the quality of the components!
- The components on the Gravity Monster are very decent quality right out of the box.
- Yes you can upgrade and make the bike lighter but you really don’t need to till a component fails, then you can upgrade easily, but trust me, this bike rides great right out of the box.
- I think he may use some sort of generic template where he specifies the geometry he is looking for and they provide him frames based on designs they already have.
- I may be wrong, buy what counts is that if you google some fat bike forums you will see that some pretty expensive bikes are made using these frames.
- Then what the company has done to keep costs down further is to standardize the components with brand names like Shimano and SRAM, but every bike gets the same components.
- Whether it is the orange, green or black, 18″ or 14″, they all use the same stuff.
- I set both bikes up and then took them to a local shop to make sure the derailleurs were right as I am a bmx guy and don’t know shit about derailleurs!
- My technician said these were really solid bikes with pretty good parts and he would not upgrade anything til it broke as you could probably only save about 5lbs total anyway.
- I wish there were better assembly instructions available.
- Lucky for me, I work with an ex-bike mechanic and he was able to correct some of my oversights.
- Really good components, the bike shop that set it up for me was impressed.
- It was packaged very well, no scratches, dings or bends.
- Bike needed a major tune up before it could even be used down my street.
- After four hours of putting the bike together; adjusting the front cones, and a complete tune, the bike was ready to ride.
- So far i have about 100 miles on the bike and it seems ok.
- It’s the equivalent to a monster truck, no trail needed.
- Easy to put together, the company that sells them has a video linked from youtube on how to do it.
- I don’t own the bike, but I’ve looked at them and others for quite some time.
- Wish I had one of these when I was a kid up in the North East.
- I can go virtually anywhere on it (and do it in style).
