Looks like something a bit better than the budget versions.
At least it's an aluminum frame.
It could be interesting to find out how heavy they are respectively.
....just to make it unbearable to not be able to get one :D

another cheap offering even comes with a second wheelset

http://www.framedbikes.com/v2/minnesota2-wht-org.html


I'd hate to be anyone trying to sell used fat now. Things used to hold value well. These cheap bikes will end that no doubt

BD is coming out with an even-lower-priced line in about April.

at emptybeer someone posted a pic of his bd bike weighing in at 32 lbs. pretty legit.

SRS, i've been lurking besides the ghey ride clyde thread and anytime i've rode a fatbike it gives me like old school back and the day smile on my face. If it wasn't this new thing with the car "stereo" don't ask...going on id try take out a loan, something to scoop up one of these deals. The one LBS just picked up KHS around 1400$ for me and damn every time I walk in there its the first thing I go to.

I'll need to see a pic and the weight. It does sound potentially better than the current one.

Hey guys I picked up one of these Nashbar fatbikes. I posted some thoughts about it on that 'other' forum but thought I'd share it here as well since there is a nice discussion about it here.

Well I picked up a Nashbar Fatbike today and had some help getting it built......

Box inspection
Image

So far so good dad
Image

Image

Made a few changes during the build, swapped the Hayes brakes for Avid BB7s (run them on all my bikes) that I happened to have a brand new set of sitting around, levers are Avid FRs which is A1. Removed the big ring and replaced it with a lightweight bash guard, the stock steel ring is HEAVY.Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

My thoughts:
-The Sram X5 kit is decent stuff, shifts well and feels solid
-bar, stem, post, grips, seat are all Meh....
-Hubs seem pretty nice, good looking machine work on them
-welding on the frame is ace
-dropouts are cool, easy for geared or SS setup
-cable routing is clean
-chain is pretty close to the tire in the granny ring / 1st gear combo
-would have been nice if they had spec'd a 400mm post for us tall folk.

I'll do a review after a few rides.

The poor kid has the biker disease worse than dad. One of his first words was "bike".

My best guess on the weight is about 35lbs. I have not gotten to weigh it yet.... soon though.
