05:29:36 there's a fat change in the way jeff cheng has been biking. 05:33:40 the tires allow you to grip, they also allow you to float over less than ideal surfaces 05:33:44 the fat bike is a growing trend that's sweeping from the northern states to the south. 05:33:22 the big thing about the fat bike is the tires a bit different than what you would see with a normal mountain bike with a bigger tire you have more stability and traction which in turn gives you more confidence on your ride--it's a bike made for ungroomed powder. 05:35:25 it's kind of like going snowshoeing or cross country skiing but there's no tracks and you have to work a little harder. with the fat bike you can go to places others t-can'-it just takes a bit more effort. 05:36:48 some folks see the wisdom in it and some folks think it's a little too cumbersome. 05:36:53 so far in virginia, cheng says its usually a second or third bike for people but with the amount of snow we've been getting and the fact it can get you away from the crowds, why not make it your first bike? 05:37:07 that's the
able to tackle things that i sometimes wouldn't consider doing. fat biking is about challenging yourself to see more of your hometown. price wise it's a bit more expensive. you can find fat bikes for about $1500 compared to a trail worthy mountain bike that's between $800 to $1000. cheng says he expects prices to go down when the demand grows for the bike.
