what are the best bikes for FATWHEELS?
These features are great for your rider and make installing FATWHEELS a breeze!
step thru frame
straight chain stay
rear axle thread extends 3/16" past nut
multi speed bikes with derailleurs
All FATWHEELS kits are designed to accommodate bikes with derailleurs.
bikes with active rear suspension
FATWHEELS will not work on bicycles with active rear suspension.
bikes with quick release hubs
The Small & Large FATWHEELS cannot be used on a bicycle with quick release hubs - they require a solid rear axle.
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")
FATWHEELS will not work with a folding bike.
tandem bikes & tag-a-longs
The Adult FATWHEELS will work with these bikes but we do not recommend this.
