    Got a XL Fat Bike you want to dump?

    Its a hit and miss in the used market. Budget-up to 1650
    Wish list in no particular order:
    anything that fits 4.8's
    and....not to make vik mad. pugsley igh w/racks...moots expedition bike was already sold....but I have a feeling that he might have been sensitive about the price offer.
    ah sizing....6'4" 34 inseam 210lbs (after 6 months of riding...future

    and it needs to ship to CA 92201

    I dont think I left anything out? and yes.... a complete bike...with frame....not just two clownshoes, handbars, and pedals

    I wish you good luck, and constant vigilance of the ebay world. I watched and watched and all of the sudden, my moonie appeared! I didn't haggle, or bid... I just bought it (@50% of retail!).
    Have faith, your steed will appear!

    Saw a couple here. Don't know if it's any thing you want but keep your eye on this site for all kinds of fat stuff.

    With a 34" inseam, I would be rethinking the XL. I have a 36" inseam and sometimes wish I had a little more room on the top tube with a large.

    An additional note, I'm selling my large Moonlander. It's a complete bike with some expensive upgrades like Shimano XT rear derailleur and shifters and a Chris King bottom bracket.

    I'm similar dimensions to the OP and the XL Surleys are really short top tubes, too small for me - no way i could fit a large without a really long stem. Plus their top tubes are really up there. That being said, I fit a large 2012 Fatback really well, 1" longer top tube than an XL Surley and more standover for clearance.

    and boys.....In case my wife reads this post...remember 4.8 bud and lou are required because I am fat, and igh with 3.8 can be used because you peddle faster.

    And to note. the 9:zero:7 is a great bike. except the 170mm is kinda being quickly cut from the market. I would want to go with IGH as an eventual upgrade. but, exceptions alway be considered, as 190mm in my humble opinion will become the mainstay....
