    Summer riding

    I'm looking at a fat bike for riding more in the summer,fall, and early spring so would the 3.8 tires be better than say 4.6 to 5.0 tires.

    Most of the tire size depends on the amount of float you need for the terrain you ride and your body weight. I have 4" tires, weigh about 170 with gear and this size tire works for me on rocks and through snow. I do a lot of steep climbs in the snow and I've always been able to air down enough to get traction with this size.

    3.8" tires on 65mm rims are the ticket for summer trail riding.
