Finding the Right Fat Bike For You
November 13, 2017, 12:00 am

Winter is here! Even with a brief warm-up this week, our first taste of snow has us pretty excited for groomed trails, night rides, and the adventures fat bikes help create. 

Here at City Bike Shop, we're proud to offer fat bike options for all abilities and riding styles. Between offerings from Borealis and Scott Bikes, there's almost certainly the right winter rig for you. To help decide, we have a few things you should think about before you buy. 

Where will you be riding the most? Thanks to Northern Michigan Mountain Bike Association, we're really fortunate to have groomed trails on the Vasa Singletrack, as well as the Vasa Pathways. If you plan to ride groomed trails like these, a four-inch tire is a little faster, a little lighter, and a little less rolling resistance. Folks that live far away from groomed trails and who may be more likely to ride two tracks, snowmobile trails, or gravel roads, having a 5" tire might be the way to go because of the increased floatation of a wider footprint. That's the ideal terrain and conditions for a Scott Big Jon

Are you going to race? With fat bike events nearly every weekend in Michigan, there are people who race more between January and March than June and August! If you do hope to race, opting for a weight-conscious carbon frame and even carbon wheels can make your races a bit more fun. Borealis offers the Crestone line-up for the racer-types, with different build options to help tailor the bike to your needs and budget. Pick from XX1, Eagle, and other builds to make sure you've got the gears to handle everything winter can throw at you. 

Want to help support fat bike grooming on the Winter Sports Singletrack? You can buy your grooming badge here, or swing by the shop to pick up your badge in person!
