So awhile back I saw a mountain bike in scheels with monster sized tires on it. They were dirt bike sized. But it was on a 25" rim I think? But it had these awesome tires on it. Anybody know what I'm talking about. It was really sweet. $499 for it. Anybody got a pic?

from what i have heard, fat bikes aren't that bad to pedal. they bounce due to the tires, and they are really good in the snow.

I imagine he means uphill with full suspension. They sucked back in the day where they would flex like a mofo when peddling. But, there's all kinds of new systems out now to prevent that

I have a feeling you have no clue what your talking about again......no it wasnt because the bike was FS That it would be hard to climb. Infact thats a modern fs frame. Look how fat the tires are. They roll slow and are heavy.....2 things you don't want.
