Seen a few of these in the hood.
One guy was actually riding it with a motocross helmet on the sidewalk.
What is so great about the fat tires? Wow factor only?

Fat tires are good for snow and can be used in pretty much any condition. Pretty silly to use solely on the street though as they are heavier and have a lot of rolling resistance. Another nice perk of fat bikes is you can often get away with no suspension fork as the larger volume tires paired with lower air pressure is a substitute version of suspension to an extent. But at this price point you won't find a quality fat bike as the wheels and tires alone will cost a good amount.

Yea. I would suggest getting something at least like the $500 one on bikesdirect. I got a crazy deal on a diamondback el Oslo de Acero for $370 on Amazon last year. Heavy steel frame but solid and decent components. It's nice to have the extra confidence of the wide tire as I primarily ride road bikes. The fat bike is more just like holding on an steamrolling over things while chuckling. It's not as nimble as a traditional MTB. But people love it when I pull the kids trailer with it in the neighborhood.

This whole winter of ice and snow along with falling 3 times, on an iced over road last Friday (thankfully only going less than 5 mph), has made me want to get a fat tire bike.

not this one and not a 7 speed. I have some hills so a 9 would be nice and a frame/groupo that supports a front derailleur with a multi gear crank, out of the box

I'm a really fat guy and have been looking for a bike that can handle my weight, 275lbs. I had a regular bike but I'm too heavy and make the tires go flat. Would these be an improvement

In theory, it should be good but make sure to research the weight limits.

Frames, pedals (usually only come into play with after market pedals), and wheels all have different weight limits
