    Pretty cool. I bet it weighs almost 50 pounds.

    OOps. I just checked the link. Only 31 pounds.
    I like turtles

    Mongoose Massif: Kids Fat Bike

    I was surprised too. It's not much heavier than my kid's Trek MT 60.

    Tires might work OK for floatation on sand but lack of any real tread would make them ineffective on slippery snow or mud. I would think that most 20" size kids could achieve sufficient floatation (and much better traction) using a tire like the 20x2.2" (56mm) holy roller Holy Roller | Maxxis USA or snyper mounted on a rim about 1/2 as wide as that used on the massif and would not require purpose-built fat bike clearance.

    Wow! Thats awesome! It's even called the Dolomite, I may have to get one just so that i can refer to it as "The Great Dolomite", I don't see how this could possibly get any better!

    Oh damn I've already envisioned how to trick that Massif out and put it on a diet for my soon to be 5 y.o. son...
