Here are some updates on the Fat bike. Some needed mod are as follows.
1. Change crank to a better set that isn't a boat anchor...
Shimano FC-M361 Acera Crankset @ $28.00 on Amazon
(remove the 42T ring)
2. Install these... "Race Face Crank Arm Outer Tab Spacers" so you can tighten the chain ring bolts after you remove the 42T ring. @ $10.19 on Amazon
3. Change the tires out to "Super wide Crusher cruiser tires" (
SUNLITE - CLINCHER, TIRES SUNLT 26x3.5 BK/BK WIRE WH-STRIPE Product Code #: JBI-59672) @ $37.48 each on Cloud Electric
4. Handle bars and grips of your choice, plus a better seat.
So here are my costs:
$200 for bike
$28 for crank
$10.19 for crank spacers
$69.96 for tires
$26.38 Handle Bars
Now with these changes it rides real nice and easy.
