Fat Tire Mountain Bikes
If you are new to mountain biking and have always dreamed of riding a fat tire bike, now is your chance to try it out. A fat tire bike is a unique type of bicycle that offers traction on uneven terrain. Because of its wide tire, fat bikers can navigate all types of terrain, from mud to bogs and obstacles. And as fat tire bike tires get wider, so do fat bike frames. A fat tire bike’s wide tires require less air pressure than standard bikes, so riders can ride with less tire pressure.
Many People Will Be Curious About Your Bike
A fat tire bike has a heavier, more difficult-to-handle frame and wheel, but this doesn’t mean it’s less comfortable. The larger contact surface of the fat tire translates to improved balance and control. Fat tire bikes are great for beginners because they won’t go very fast, but they’re less likely to injure you if you fall or crash. They’re not for everyone though, and they can be expensive.
Fat bike riders should expect to face some stares from onlookers and other cyclists. But you can take comfort in knowing that most of the people stopping you are curious about fat bikes. Many people will be curious about your bike, but that’s not the reason to be shy – the stares will turn into friendly conversation. They’ll want to know what you’re doing, and you’ll likely blend in. But if you’re concerned about looking different, you can opt for a fat tire bike that’s easy to use.
