    I don't understand. Is it like a beach cruiser like that Tommisea thing?

    It's got an artisanal hatchet, too. Someone should grab that and start hitting the bike repeatedly with it

    Aside from the curvy swooping seatstay looks this seems nothing like the Sawyer. But yeah, the Sawyer is a good bike.

    +1, that thing is silly, although the anodized large marges look sexy.

    It looks cool and all, but who exactly is the market? Trail riders won't want those handlebars and that basket in front. Not sure snow riders will either. Is the hatchet stock?

    I kind of like the idea, but definitely wouldn't buy it.

    It'll do well on the beach boardwalk rental circuit.

    Another bike that uses fat tires. The more demand there is for these tires the more options we'll get. I'd like to see a Larry with a solid centre band for riding on paved trails. Where I ride there are some rough trails with lots of roots, and some paved trails, and a centre bead would make riding on the pavement smoother.

    I was talking to a Trek rep last Winter about the rising popularity of Fat Bikes, and I asked if Trek was going to look into it. He said, a lot of people that work at Trek, love riding their Pugsley's, and that Trek was looking into the Fat Bike market. I guess he wasn't kidding.

    I think this could be very good for the Fat Bike market, we may get some new technology, and new/more parts that could help all of us, from a company with very deep pockets. Let's see what they can do.

    These are generally for areas that get snow. Fat bikes work great in the winter, so you can ride year round

    Interesting approach to getting long chain stay length. I wonder if they were able to get away with 135mm hubs in the back. That's how Tommisea did it. And I wonder what the effective rear angle is. I actually liked the super slack rear angle on the old mtb's. In fact I'm inspired to go ride my old 85 MB1 right now. It's not too fat but the Big Apples will have to do.

    Looking at the seat angle again - wouldn't that put your butt more toward the rear? As far as I'm concerned float is more of an issue in back than it is in front. Looks like it is being marketed as more of a style thing.

    It's based off the 2012 Pure model. (The "foot forward" recreational bike)

    Based on the hatchet thing, it wouldn't surprise me if this was a concept bike not meant for production. (Anyone at TrekWorld can chime in with actual info, I am just guessing on the conceptual idea)

    yeah but the one in the back looks good to go!
    I'd buy one. Seems sorted for bumming on the beach, considering fatbikes rarely reach high speeds (and my cruiser handles fine at high speed anyways) I can't see the problem.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    The rear rim looks like the offset version of the LM.

    If I was in the market for a cruiser bike I'd bite...till then my '55 Schwinn Spitfire will have to do. I agree though, more fatbikes = more components (are tires considered components?)
    If Huffy made an airplane, would you fly in it?
