The Adult FATWHEELS are designed differently and can be used on bicycles with quick release hubs.

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  (71/4 - 101/2")

Large FATWHEELS: Rear Axle Height Range:  (113/4 - 15")

tandem bikes & tag-a-longs
