Real Customers Say:
Max-MTBR.com "First impressions? Super-impressed!! The bike came well-packaged…took it for a spin around the neighbourhood... Rides way better than any of the fatbikes I've test-ridden...amazing value and blows away anything else in its category."
OU-MTBR.com "…it's definitely a fun bike to fling around"
Ben-MTBR.com "…simply put: This is a lot of bike for the money…quality of this bike is what one should expect from this level of bike, but the price we are paying is far less that we'd be paying at a bike store."
SMED-MTBR.com "Just got back from my first single track ride….WHAT A BLAST! It was really fun to ride. I rode pretty hard and it held together. So, thats good!"
AHR-MTBR.com "..as nimble as my old 26" single-speed hardtail with an 80mm travel fork. On the fat bike, I can clean rock gardens that have stymied me…"
SML-MTBR.com "…lot of complements on the bike, One guy even asked if he could sit on it and ride it, I was like sure. Then I told him the price and he was blown away…Today I did a real ride, 8 miles and can say WOW this thing can climb..."
DT - MTBR.com "Absolutely LOVIN this thing !!! Close to 300 miles so far."
Ian - MTBR.com "…hands down the best bike buy I have…Its all the love of the fat bike I already had but now with the ability to ride it faster and harder then before…"
"Overall fit of the bike is fantastic!… riding it on normal trails is it lets me ride way more aggressively. 120 Travel on that fork and how the bike sits really makes you wanna bomb down sections….an animal and out of the box its ready to go rip down the trails."
"…well worth the money…if you are looking to get a sick fat bike this is the way to go. The big name bikes I got to demo where great and fun to ride but if I was spending that kind of money I could have bought (two) lurches…"
River - MTBR.com
"The Bluto felt pretty good right out of the box and I like the compression adjustment. Things shifted well right out of the box. BB7s were cake to setup......and feel pretty damn good….."
UT - MTBR.com Lurch FS X9 (with Rockshox Bluto Fork) "Maiden ride today, and all I can say is wow. Very Impressed! The Lurch worked flawlessly, and the Bluto 120 is awesome. Luckily we had some fresh powder today, after a month of dry, rare spring-like weather here in Utah.
...BD put together a killer package. You’re getting a heck of a deal. Awesome components for the $, and a frame that rides great based on one ride I’ve been riding for 15+ years, plus I have a couple of high end 29er bikes for comparison currently in my stable."
SIngleTracks.com (NightTrain/Sturgis frame+ RockShox Bluto Fork)" I can clean everything on my local trails with ease, even lines I regularly avoid...super stable, even in dicey sections, as they smooth out rocks and roots...rolls over chunder, navigates sandy washes with ease, blazes trail where there is no trail, and even rides up stairs (this last one is still my favorite)."
Customers rave about these Fat Bikes
ROCKSHOX BLUTO FATBIKE FORK REVIEWS
" "what absolutely struck me as spectacular, was how well the fat tires and the (Rockshox Bluto) fork worked together to create an suspension feeling rivaling the best 29er trail full suspension bikes...makes the already fun ride just sooo much more fun!"
"Amazing to see undampened (tires) and dampened suspension (fork) working together so well and creating such a great ride."
"…have you ride lines you usually wouldn’t – traction and grip simply seem limitless and this sure has an effect on the way you ride…amazed of how easily and confidently one can go all out with a fat bike, in terrain that could well be considered advanced on a regular mountain bike. Breathtaking and pure fun!"
Even when reviewed at list price, bicycle tech editiors feel the Motobecane bikes are incredible values.

FAT BIKES! Ingeniously simple concept. Giant tires = more control in loose conditions.
Super wide tires “float” over snow and sand…the fastest bikes you’ll ever ride on mud, bogs, deep sand and snow. As a bonus, they’re great convo makers and super smile-generators
How much does a fat bike weigh?
These bikes are big and Big FUN. Big weighs more. Most average fat bikes weigh between about 30 and 40 pounds. How much do these fat bikes weigh? Compare specs, aluminum fat bikes with similar parts will weigh the about the same.
How do Fat Bikes ride?
Way better than standard mountain bikes in snow? Yes. No Doubt. You'll ride over absolutely almost everything. Float over three feet of soft powder snow or deep sugar sand and laugh! You'll do a tons more riding – and way less walking.
Awesome in rough conditions such as snow, deflate the tires to provide more traction. Compare Fat Bikes to the difference between a car and monster truck SUV. Your fat bike can go more places, like sport utility vehicles.
The hottest trend in the mountain biking world right now. Fat bikes are hard to miss. Their giant, "fat" tires roll over virtually anything, which makes them an ideal winter mode of transportation because they help cyclists traverse snowy and icy trails with ease and traction.
While the bikes were pioneered for snowy climates, such as found on the Front Range, they work well in a variety of environments including sand and loose rock, which has 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.
This is a promotional price for Bikesdirect Pre-Order customers ONLY. These Awesome Fat Bikes are selling out rapidly and will go up to $100 more once we meet our early adopter sales goal. At the current rate of sales, many sizes will be gone soon and may not restock for quite some time
