    This is a bit of a bump. Has anyone who bought this got any feedback for the rest of us looking? I feel like this would be the perfect bike for Bikes Direct to offer.

    Anyone have a picture of a "slightly smaller than normal human" on a baby fatty. Wife is 5'1 1/2 and we're debating on bikes. Boris 15" X9 works pretty well, but this might be better. Kind of tough to try with an online purchase.

    Wow, it is finally here! Any pictures with a small rider on available? I am trying to figure out if my son would fit on one of these.

    Anyone tried sticking one of those 24" x 4" tyres in the back of a 1x1?

    Looks to me that they might just squeeze in because the wide point will be a bit further back than with a 26".

    ETT is 55cm should fit up to 5'5" I would have thought.

    Does anyone know approx. how old a skilled kid need to be to fit on one of these? My kid is 6 years old and is a good rider off road. He rides a 20" normal MTB now.

    My son is 9 and I got him an XS puglsey. Fits him fine and he will not outgrow it in a year. Granted, he is 5' tall already at 9 (I am 6'3" and my wife is 6'). The Framed bike looks awesome. Our other son is only 6 months old - so no fatty for him yet.

    Anyone actually ride one of these yet that's a bit taller? I like the idea of the smaller 24" tires, but I'm not sure about the smaller frame size.

    My wife is 60.5". Just got her one after she tested a XS mukluk vs the 24" Specialized. She just felt the 24" bike was a better fit. She alway believed her XS Trek MTB was a bit too big for her. Anyways, I'll have more impressions from her as she rides it in the thawed AK landscape in the weeks ahead.

    Can this run 27.5 wheels seeing as 24x4 is approximately 27", or would 26" be a better option? Just trying to see if it could do double duty, summer/winter for a 5' new rider. Also, if 26" or 27.5" wheelset is possible and not cost prohibitive, is there a front suspension that will fit the summer wheels and would not alter the handling too much? Can't find specs on the baby fatty fork.
