4.0 out of 5 stars Big Bike, big fun., 21 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm loving my fatbike. I bought it on a whim and just for fun. The kind of obvious stuff about this bike is true. Other reviews I read in advance mostly seem to hold up. Stuff I've noted so far:

It is heavy (about 22/ 23 kg or over) but I do manage to carry it up two floors of stairs. Wide tyres=more traction and drag so going uphill on it is hard work. On the flat once you're going it barrels along nicely. Being used to my road bike position, it's a lovely change to be seated more upright and able to look at your surroundings more. It's a change of mentality from road bike too, the pebbles/bumps/grids/potholes/kerbs/litter you avoid on road bike you can plough through on this. It's very comfortable too, the tyres absorb so much shock, and the ability to turn more tightly and ride upright along a river bank for example with all that side tyre traction opens up new terrain.

You won't probably choose to use it much for distance or speed of course, but different bikes for different things. If you're shy and don't like strangers talking to you, forget it, loads of people comment on it, ask you questions, and want to chat about it. Word of warning: it comes mostly assembled, don't be lazy or over enthusiastic like me in your urge to get out on first spin - Do, as recommended, check tightness of rear wheel etc. I figured it looked grand, ploughed straight downhill into a stream and wheel loosened in one side unable to turn and resulted in a tiring carry back to the house for tools to loosen and Re tighten. It's fun though, enjoy it if you think it's right for your needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite Good - some room for improvement, 8 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When fitted will work well and hold lock in place steadily and is very worthwhile. Two points. One: The velcro strap for the smaller side of the lock split in two the other day while pulling it to fasten it around lock - mine may have been a dud one, but it should be stronger. They should test how strongly they glue/attach together the "hook" and "sticky" sections of the velcro. Two: The handlebar on my particular bike has "oversize" written on it. With this holder, it's designed to go around narrower handle bars so the piece of rubber provided to wrap around handlebar and provide grip for the holder to tighen on to was too thick. I rectified this by simply using an old piece of thinner rubber from an old bike inner tube instead. That side, when it worked it worked very well. I'll be on to them for replacement velcro straps, and also having separately purchased the lock for £60, I thought having to spend another £12 or so for this was a bit overpriced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the TV, 7 Oct. 2013

Have a 42" LG LED. Love how can have it flat against wall and pulled out and angled to any position required. For my wall, had to buy some Deeper screws and rawl plugs and longer drill bits, but that's cause it was into chalk board then gap then brick. There's many supplied screws which will probably suit most other places. My bits and pieces set me back an extra tenner. Worth it though.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lovely Read, 7 Oct. 2013

A great quiet hero in Harold Fry. A man that's very easy to empathise with, and one whose outlook is so well managed by the author so we see his inability to intentionally upset anyone, while wishing so much he'd spent his life taking so much less lying down, or wishing he'd had the set of tools to deal with things. A newly awakened non-judgemental set of eyes through with to see many others around us we'd frequently miss out on. Some good commentary and observation on conservative England.

Kept looking forward to picking it back up to see how Harold was getting on.
