    Why couldn´t they make such a perfect matching fork for the 26er Fatty?

    You can use a Trickstuff Exzentriker EBB in the Fatty.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    Awesome ! My 2 boys (7&8) would love these but its just because I ride one, there nowhere really that I take them that needs a dedicated fatbike.

    Was contemplating getting them 20" or 24" MTB's for Christmas but im thinking I might get them more BMX's so their skillz progression continues. Currently riding 16" Lil Rippers and they are pretty good on the BMX track but nearly on the limit size ways.

    Why cannot adults ride 24" fat bikes?
    ( I'd prefer around 16" or 17" of seat tube for a Medium". Don't make the front too tall.)

    Who said they can't? Adults ride 20 inch BMX. I certainly don't want one as I ride an XL, but go for it

    BMX ... I've noticed that some Fat Bike riders have been finding out how much fun it can be to ride a 26" Fat Bike on a BMX track:

    Amongst the riders I know, the ones with a BMX back ground are noticably better at riding/handling a mountain on a mountain trail. By noticably I mean lots better. Now that I'm in my fifties and came to mountain biking late in life I sometimes wish I would of had the same BMX back ground. Learning all of the important skills while my body was still young enough to heal quickly, now it's the fear of injury that sometimes hold me back. I make my living selling bicycles, all though our shop does not sell BMX bikes, I wish they were the choice of more parents for their child's first bikes.

    Sorry, totally off topic.

    Tried contacting v rubber but no response. The more I look at these tires the more I think the 4" width is a typo. I certainty cannot find any shop that stocks them

    yeah, looking into the geo charts I can see various bikes that fits my girlfriend ok, I'm more concerned about "real" toptube clearance, too high handlebars or the saddle height beeing almost the same as wheel diameter, meaning less chances of succesfull emergency dismounts... oooops

    thanks for the picture Rock dude
