How do fat bikes work?
Fat bikes are designed for winter riding, featuring lower air pressure and big fat tires that allow you to float over snowy trails, whereas other types of tires sink. As a result, the winter sport is growing in popularity in winter climates and ranks as a top winter activity in northern Minnesota.
