find your FATWHEELS
To find the right set of FATWHEELS you must know the size of your bike and the weight of your rider.
How do I know what size bike I have?
Bike size is determined by the height of the tires. The size is printed on the sidewall of the rear tire. The first number in the sequence is the height of the tire - this tire fits a 29" bike.
about fat tire bikes
Fat tire bikes sit higher off the ground than typical bikes so you need to measure your bike's rear height from the ground to the center of the bike's rear axle nut and choose the appropriate kit.
Small FATWHEELS: Rear Axle Height Range (7 1/4 - 10 1/2")
Large FATWHEELS: Rear Axle Height Range: (11 3/4 - 15")
