    Well the claim that they will float over 3' of powder snow might be stretching it a bit.

    What's up with the front rim? Is it really that wide or some sort of optical illusion???

    If you look at the specs, they show two different widths on the rims. The front rim is probably 4 1/4 inches and the rear is 3"... Then it's probably cheaper to drill two rows of round holes than to CNC a big oblong hole like a Clownshoe.

    IDK. They do list the rims as: ALLOY RIM, 26"x3.0-4 1/4" Could be rear = 3.0" and front = 4 1/4" width

    Its not anything funny going on... its bikes direct... they sell all their bikes at just over cost.

    And if you want to get on a fatbike, who cares about the weight at that cost. I'm guessing under 40, maybe 38... still a million times better than the walgoose. Hydro brakes... good name brand tires.

    It's called marketing, they're selling it at exactly the price they intend to sell it at.
    We have a stores here that will import product just for the weeks the ad runs in the paper, then claim it's on sale... it's sorta like that

    Otherwise, I would say my (kids/wifes) next fatbike would likely be On-One or BD at this point, but not for me.
    Of my bikes I bought new 3/4 were LBS bikes and the 4th I built myself. I would only replace my Fatbike frame, not the whole bike.

    BD puts out some excellent bikes at lower price points than what the LBS can deliver

    As someone who was strongly considering a Mukluk 3 as my best choice on the lower end of the price-range... I'm now even more strongly considering this Motobecane thingamajig. It might not look as sharp, but it seems decent, and is half the price.

    Had I not just purchased an One One Fatty, I would have been all over this. Could have got a Pro and a Comp for the price of what mine cost after building. Hell, pick up the Pro, and purchase the Carver suspension fork, for under 2 bills. Good job Bikes Direct.

    Looking at the specs, are they using 135mm hubs?

    I emailed BD a few days before I ordered my Fatty asking when and if they planned on some fat bikes....they emailed me back after I had put my order in and said to keep checking the website, the plan was to have em before the end of the year.

    I kinda glad I went ahead and got my Fatty....love it!
