Seemed like a decent price for an entry level fat. But no lightweight that's for sure.

Blimey!

we looked at a Viking Saratoga for the family a while back and it was about the same weight and price - difference being, the Saratoga is a Tandem!

is it possible to have a lightweight fatbike? even the lightest set of tyres and rims ive seen weigh more than my entire weenie build, and its nasty rotating weight. also that gearing is a bit of a worry. who thought a 42t chaining was appropriate for a 1x9 11-32, on a bike that is only useable offroad?

fatbikes are a total gimmick if you ask me, but that is a good price though yeah.

"Introducing the Coyote Fatman Fat Bike, weighing in at a svelte 22kg" :shock:

Also comes with an axle bending freewheel hub for all you larger folks / extreme riders out there

Buy cheap buy twice :D especially when it's a fat bike
Money and ride is all in the wheels, good set of surly rims with holes in
To save weight make all the difference,
The dune caliber in go out doors seems to be upgrade friendly
And 500 notes or near.
