    XDS Fatbike or FatBSO?

    hey guys!

    this bike is beginning to show up in my neck of the woods.

    just wondering if you have ever heard of it or have had any feedback.

    https://www.facebook.com/shunchicycl...18719444966741

    comes in at about 620USD.
    Let it flow, let yourself go, slow and low, that is the tempo.

    What is your neck of the woods? Anywhere in the US that you are seeing this bike? I agree. Looks real nice!

    Familiar looking bike that is.
    Looks like XDS (a huge factory) pulled an Ideal (another huge bike factory)

    Compare the pic of it to a pic of the current fatbike from a North American brand.
    Located pretty far north in North America, but not as far north as Alaska.

    This thing just looks odd to me... like overly bulky. I'm just commenting on aesthetics of course. Kind of reminds me of a kids bike. But to each their own right.

    I tried, but I'm not as familiar with all the brands and it doesn't remind me of any bikes I have seen thus far.

    Hint:
    The model name of the bike in question is the opposite of ''smallfoot''

    The bike in the first post definitely resembles that bike. The one on in post 11 has similar shape, but the tubing seems like it's even more hydro formed then the norco.

    Or it's made out of carbon. If that's the case, they even "borrowed" the Breagrease's black w/ blue paint scheme.

    I believe it's because they've never done any research themselves or understand fat bikes. They are merely trying to jump in and get (steal) some of the market share from the companies that actually did the research and development. So goes consumerism... some choose to support those companies to save every nickel they can, and some choose to support the companies that rightfully deserve it.

    A friend has one. They're getting really popular here in Asia...




    It looks nice, being different from most fatties in having a curved frame and not the usual straight... its also has a nice build, you wont see any welds sticking out of the smooth finish. Some have mistaken it to be carbon due to that finish. From what I hear... the ride is a bit stiff though.

    The latest model, the warlord III, landed in the top 10 mtb category.
