" 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).
Real Customers Say:
Christopher S. - Cold Spring Harbor, NY
"...rode it today. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's such a beautiful frame and rides amazingly. Thanks so much for such a great company. As a longtime bike rider, I believe your fat bikes (and many others) are a no-brainer for anyone..."
NG 50- MTBR.com
"I am very very impressed with this bike. Its a quality bike with a quality build. I would strongly suggest that you grab either the Sturgis Bullet or (spend more) and get the NightTrain Bullet. You will not be disappointed, and you might not need another bike."
M. Davies, Colorado
"Thanks for making my day....awesome in the snow. I was able to power uphill over snow covered rocks without slipping at all. Snow is fun again!"
"Just got my first fatty from Bikes Direct...never bought a bike this way before & I was a little apprehensive….the bike is outrageous! Great spec...once out of the box, I was up & running in less than an hour. To give you an idea about the capabilities of this bike, I took it out to my favorite local trail that I have been riding for more than 10 years. Over time, as my bikes & my skills improved, I managed to clean all the sections of trail but for one area that I just couldn't ride.I cleaned it on the first time out...Nuff said!"
"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
"…it's definitely a fun bike to fling around"
"...yesterday, two hours of cranking, and even my notoriously sensitive hips and knees bothered me not…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."
"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!"
"..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…"
"…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..."

Comparison Specialized FatBoy FatBike Frame vs Motobecane Sturgis/NightTrain FatBike
Aluminum Frame Fatbike Comparison Buyers Guide (*as of 9/1/15)
When shopping for a front suspension fatbikes and looking at reviews, there are three essentials to look for.
1) For best handling, comfort and control look for Rockshox Bluto Suspension Forks (worth $600 alone).
2) For enhanced ride quality, traction and virtually flat-free riding (when converted) look for MuleFut Tubeless Wheels (worth $700 alone)
3) For best power and control, look for hydraulic disc brakes.
If your fatbike does not have at least these three top features, expect to spend about $1500 more to get them.

FAT BIKES! Ingeniously simple concept. Giant tires = more control in loose conditions. Ride Virtually Any Where!
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 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.
