Default Re: Walmart FatBikes

Fatter the tire, the higher the rolling resistance.
Unless you're looking at riding in soft sand/dirt, why would you want tires that fat for a street ridden bike?
Yes, they look cool but just not efficient for a bicycle engine.

I looked at a high dollar version at a local bike shop. $1300.00 for a bike that I'd have to offset the engine to the left at least two inches to get chain to tire clearance. Then I've have crank/pedal issues. Worth it? Not for me.
