We're not sure what those who have said that Fat biking is "dead" are talking about. Fat biking is alive and well around Fit Werx. To date, Fat bikes are selling better this year than last and you don't want to be the one without a good bike when your friends ask if you want to go out. If you haven't tried riding a Fat bike, make it a point to get out this season and find out how much of a workout and how much fun you can have in the cold on a bike. Fit Werx has demo Fat bikes and carries a wide range of Fat bikes that are worth knowing about, including the following brands:
Felt Fat Bikes:
Starting below $1300 with the Felt DD70 and ranging through the $1700 DD30 and the incredibly fun electric assist Lebowske, Felt offers high value Fat bikes that are innovative and ready to bring fat tire fun to most anyone.
Fatback Fat Bikes:
Based in Anchorage, Alaska, Fatback is a true pioneer in the world of Fat bikes. Just what you would expect from a company that only designs and builds Fat bikes. The Fatback Skookum and the new and even lighter Skookum FLT are some of the most versatile carbon Fat bikes anywhere - capable of being ridden year round. The Rhino and Rhino FLT do the same in aluminum and are available down to sizes starting at 14".
The fact that Trek jumped into developing their Farley line of Fat bikes when the category was young showed that they were ready to take on winter. The Farley line remains forward thinking and consists of a wide range of alloy and carbon models ready to roll in most any season.
Trek Fat Bikes:
We love companies who stick to their values and build the absolute best product they can. Moots Cycles exemplifies this approach with their titanium Fat bike the Frosthammer. When you are ready for the best, look no further than the lifetime durability of a Moots designed and built right in the midst of snow country in Steamboat Springs, CO.
