We all know it is difficult to find a fatbike under $2000 if you don’t want make a few compromises. Those of us on a budget often find ourselves choosing among fatbike options where one or more of the frame, drivetrain and wheels are heavy, used or otherwise not ideal. On top of that, fatbike technology is seeing significant innovation each year. Last year we saw change in the standard for hub width (170mm to 190mm, 197 if using thru axles) become common for many fatbikes. So frames are now wider to accommodate 190. Suspension forks are now changing front end standards (135mm to 150mm), which doesn't affect the frame, but it does affect which wheel sets work on which bikes . Quickly, the fatbike market is becoming too complicated for most buyer to feel confident enough to build up the ideal bike without professional input. But we all still want to take advantage of the new technology.
Now, not only can we help you navigate all of these options, but now we can even take your used bike in trade! You can forgo the hassle and risk of finding a buyer for your old fatbike and get credit toward a Kona Wo, Fatback Corvus, Fatback Skookum, or Fatback Rhino. How does this work?
