3 Great Fat Bike Options
One of the coolest Fatties we’ve seen this year is the Cannondale Fat Caad 1 with it’s Lefty fork. There isn’t anything else like it on the trail. Lightweight, agile and capable of sucking up the big stuff this guy will go anywhere in comfort and with a quickness!
Trek has been smoking the competition for a few years now with it’s Farley lineup of Fat Bikes. We love the Trek Farley 5 in the sub 2k price range. It offers a huge bang for the bike in function and design. You cannot go wrong with a Farley!
Charge Bikes are a UK based company with a deep history in designing gnarly bikes that just work. They don’t beat around the bush with added stuff you don’t need, their bikes are just plain cool! If you’re in the market for a great starter fatty then you have to keep the Charge Cooker Maxi 1 at $1299 in your sights.
So, there you have it.

Gary Fisher is widely considered to be the godfather of mountain biking. He is also looked at as having brought the big wheels 29 inch mountain bike to the forefront of our industry.
For 2009 Fisher has once again raised the bar in the 29er world. With all new designed frames, custom forks from Fox and tweaked geometries the latest batch of G.F. 29ers are truly at the head of their class.
One thing that has plagued the 29er platform in some peoples eyes has been poor standover height and sometimes sluggish steering in certain conditions. With the latest addition of Fishers these two things have been taken out of the equation. Standover height has been much improved and more importantly the patented G2 Fisher geometry has been significantly improved with the addition of customized Fox forks. Fox and Fisher worked together to increase the low speed steering issues that had previously been a 29er’s nemesis by changing the fork offset . This change has given the 29er a very 26er like steering feel in low speed situations as well as maintaining the legendary 29er stability.
