 That's actually pretty sick. Never thought I would see that on a fat bike

 I don't get the hype behind it. It's like me driving a monster truck down the highway..... holy shit that would be amazing!

 Impressive riding, but the bike looks like an old Torker BMX bike with fat wheels on it. So in essence, it could make those of us that suck on BMX bikes suck just a little less.

 @BoneDog: If you actually try it, you would know it is no hype. You can ride shit impossible on regular tires, traction is unbelievable. Snow, sand, off the trail, anything steep.

 @Axxe, I was being sarcastic. I own a custom Salsa Muk 2 with dillinger studded 4" tires, hopetech hubs, x9 clutch 1x10 and full raceface turbine. It's not my thing for the summer, but I love ridding snowmobile trails and trapper trails in the winter. Ultra adventure.

 Sarcasm does not work on the Internet. Just like studded tires in the summer.

 Just in time for Chris Akriggs Fat Bike edit Wink Never the less, Ross Jarman is behind the riding in some of my fav edits... Nice one.

 Is fat bike trials going to replace rd bike trials?

 Just wait five years and the next trend will be a trials bike that combines the two...
  • 3 0
 Nah, next trend is gonna be trails on those old school 50" front tire, 10"rear tire bikes.

 Maybe hipsters should ride them instead of fixed gears! The problem is they might develop leg muscles and skinny jeans won't fit.

 @shredwhatevs you are ignorant if you think riding a track bike takes no leg muscle, try climbing hills with a gear as hard or harder than 36-11 and tell me if it takes leg muscles. my pants stretch to accommodate my massive legs but most often i just wear lycra cause its more comfy for spinning. only reason you wont see "hipsters" riding fat bikes is cause they never leave the city and fat bikes are all but redundant for the most part unless you have sand or shit tones of snow
  • 12 0
 someones a little sensitive....
  • 6 1
 Like a bull with its nuts wrapped in duct tape... lycra has the same affect on people.
  • 2 2
 Point is you normally dress for the riding you are doing oter wise you look like a clown. I wouldn't wear a skin suit to a DH race and I'm sure as hell not wearing Dh bro shorts and a moto Jersey on my track and road bikes
  • 3 0
 I really don't understand what your point is to be honest.

Firstly, trying to climb hills with a 36-11 ratio is hard... fair enough it is. Secondly you say you have massive legs (well thats just arrogant) and your pants stretch to accommodate - have you ever tried shorts? Thirdly you say "you won't see 'hipsters' riding fat bikes" because "they never eave the city" well thats just naive and a huge generalisation. Fourthly, you say fat bikes are redundant unless you have sand or snow - you obviously don't like having fun when you ride, because fat bikes can be fun when there is no sand or snow - see video above for reference (i see no sand or no snow). Finally, you say "you look like a clown" - fair enough i take your point but it has no relevance to points one, three and four. Only does it have the slightest amount of relevance to point three but that is in relation to road biking which immediately makes it out of context on this website. I suggest you try something like this:

www.roadbikereview.com

OR

www.bikeradar.com/au/road

Finally, I think you need to apologise to shredwhatevs for saying he is ignorant because he was clearly making a light hearted joke.

 No worries nwthumbs and thanks Hammm! That WAS a lighthearted comment! Guess what, I ride a brakeless fixed gear all week long in a hilly city for work (guess what I do) mostly in skinny jeans because they are stretchy and even are good in the rain! Im wearing them right now! And I'm in a band so yes I'm poking fun at myself! Anyway riding brakeless is harder going down hill then up I think, and when you have to emergency stop its like your ankles are going to rip in half! And any bike is work going up hill. The hipster bike keeps me in shape for DH, BMX, XC, DJ etc. I would love to get a fat bike but it would cause the floor in the bike room (aka the kitchen in our "character house") to sag plus my girlfriend would kill me!
  • 18 3
 Yes, you can ride those on a DJ in good weather. But a Fatty is the classic all-rounder: It does way more kinds of things than a DJ or BMX or MTB, but it doesn't beat any one kind of bike at its own game. And it's the only game in town for serious snow.

Many of my friends went to 26" Fatties for winter, and now they ride them all year round. They're *fun*. No, they can't climb as well as an MTB, and they certainly don't jump as well as a DH bike, and so forth, but damn, the people riding them on ordinary trails in the summer have a shit-eating grin going. And they're not bad at handling ridiculous gnar. They really do eat rock gardens and root-fests for breakfast.

I suspect that the right thing to do is to ride one before poo-poohing it. Certainly it won't be as "good" at dirt jumps or street or trail as a bike designed for that one purpose. But maybe... Possibly... It'll be ridiculous fun any ways.
  • 15 1
 Riding Fat bikes is like riding fat girls, it's fun until you're seen by your friends.
  • 12 2
 It just looks super fun. Akriggs vid shows how great roll over those things have. It is only a matter of time until I get a Fatbike... Just after 275 hate wave came down and "early adopters" thought they will have their monent of triumph a new bicycle trend came around hahaha.

Those continous top tubes/ seat stays going from headtube to drop outs deserve some bicycle design award. Freaking brilliant and beatiful!

 They look so much fun, but.............

 As other said it's been done many times before and goes back over 100 years – most recently and best by the evil imperial and nicolai 2mx.
  • 6 4
 Ekhewm, I don't want to sound elitist, but for a design lover there is a quite a big difference between that 100 year old picture, evil imperial and that On*one. It is like a difference between ibis mojo which is commonly recognized as a beatiful bike (it even got an award for looks) and latest pivot am bike which despite feminine lines looks as if up and downtubes got bent as a result of a serious crash it into a fkng wall... so don't judge a line by it's endpoints Wink

 It's a good vid and nice looking bike. I'm not hating and wouldn't mind trying a fat bike. The reality is, where I live, I have no use for one. It might be a good investment for some. I just wonder if this trend, involving so many brands, will payoff for bike industry.

 The original surly pugsley, the first widely available fat bike was a 24". This was pre 29 er craze. The effective diameter was 26" like mtbs of the time. those bikes ripped and could be had for 300 dollars when the 26" pugsley came out.

 Wonder if they built up an extra tough set of wheels for him to go so big? I'm afraid I don't trust my single walled Weimann/Novatec wheels to take jumps like that for long. Of course I'm twice the size of the rider in the video too...

  • 4 1
 Exactly my thoughts.. I don't understand the use of fat bikes for these applications. They look like a blast for mud/snow/sand/techy crawlers, but for all other riding, we already have bikes that fit. To each their own I suppose. (and yes, I have ridden a fat bike)
  • 2 1
 Why not? This bike looks fun for all round shredtastic entertainment- and anyway sometimes riding a bike that's a bit wrong can be a blast. Take a hardtail DHing for a day- I did and it was so entertaining. It also made me love my DH even more when I got back on it!

 Yeah... like Chris Rock said,, you can drive a car with your feet, but that don't make it a good idea.

 I hate to burst the buying bubble, but purchasing a fat bike will not make you ride like that...and if you can ride like that already, you'll have more fun on a dirt jumper.
  • 3 2
 Who said FatBikes was supposed to replace DJ bikes? Fatbikes have always been specifically designed for Snow and Sand conditions but they can still be fun bikes to ride on Singletrack, DJ, or even some Downhill trails, that was the point of the video. No one said they were better

 I think people who never ridden a Fat Bike have no clue what they're talking about... Every time I ride my Spesh Fat Boy, I come back home with my facial muscles sore, from smiling too much Smile
They're just like regular Mountain Bikes with big tires and very capable of shredding any trails. So peeps, you should REALLY ride one before you talk bad about it...

 I thought 4.0 is the end. Long time ago, about 15 years, I read about a guy in Canada who built a bike for snow and sand riding. I remember he used small and extremely wide tires like 24cm or so. They we probably car wheels or sort of. The bike was red, I think and it had two chains.
