    That's fantastic! I wish my son was old/big enough so I could buy one.

    That's what I was thinking. Can't wait for $35 800 TPI 400gram puncture proof 5" wide uber knobbies to hit the streets.

    Almost finished building a women's XS 26er with my son into a "fat" bike. It's got 47mm x 24" rims and 2.7" tires. I've got an old 24" large marge drilled out and ready to go but we couldn't easily source tires to make that worth while. Buying these tires would be awesome.

    Congrats On-One, smart move. You will sell them by the thousands.
    Put this bike next to any number of other kids' bikes - only the fatty
    goes.
    Where the adult asks for the reason of big tires and stupid things like rolling
    resistance, the mind of the child is unspoiled in these terms.
    They just get it.

    Don't have children yet, but can I have two? One in green and one in purple, please?

    This. Didn't see any info on the tires, other than the ON-ONE stamp. Looks like something that might fit on my 1x1=11 to replace the Felt Berm Masters (which replaced the Hoggy Gs).

    Looks like they will have the market to themselves...will be interesting to see how long it takes before someone else can't let it pass.

    How long before we hear..."Daddy, what's the fattest tires my bike can fit; and when are we going to the beach again?

    I'm 6' 3 and I have had exactly same thoughts Too bad that the baby fatty does not have horizontal dropouts for clean SS conversion (or is there any EBB option that could be used?)

    You can use a Trickstuff Exzentriker EBB in the Fatty.

    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

    24" fatties might make sense for big people, too. If you are going for float, width is what matters. A fatty tire would make the total diameter in the territory of a 26" regular mtb knobby tire, which is pretty tried and true. 24" would have less angular momentum than 26" of course, just like 26" vs 29". And with fatty tires, angular momentum is a big deal.
