Fat bikes are fun.
Practical, for a lot of our local trails, they’re not.
What the heck, practical isn’t everything. Nobody said that you needed four-wheel drive, 30″ of ground clearance and internet service in your car either. You still have fun driving to the grocery store in your Hummer H2.
Yeah but the thing is, you want to play around on the trails or try to cruise the beaches at low tide, but otherwise aren’t really sure how much you’d ride a fat bike. It is the Pacific Northwest after all. We’re not really known for snowy or sandy trails.
We get it.
That’s why we have the Wo and the Wozo from the good folks at Kona bicycles. The frames are made out of aluminum, so they’re light and rust resistant. The Wozo has really fat 6″ wide tires that roll over the mushiest surfaces easily. The bike is outfitted with nice lightweight gear and comes in around $2500. The Wo has 5″ wide tires for good floatation across soft trails, and the bike is less than $1600, so you can try out those weird cycling adventures that you had in mind without dropping a lot of cash.
