This makes me extremely hopeful. How much do fat bikes cost? Also, are there certain tires I should buy?MotownBikeBoy said:I gotta tell you, 3 winters on my fat bike and I never came close to wiping out. Tires are very stable on everything they encounter, even black ice.
As others already posted, yes absolutely!blur92 said:Is it possible to bike in the winter safely? I have never tried it, but I really want to because I dislike being cooped up inside on a stationary bike. Are there certain tires to purchase, and are they effective? Is it even possible to bike in the snow?
Oh wow, this is somewhat discouraging :unsure: were the tires on your bicycle not appropriate for the weather conditions?johnderman said:I tried riding in the winter, only there was snow and ice all over the roads. I pulled around a corner and nearly fell off my bike, and somehow my britches ended up in my chain and ripped a big hole in my pants, and I had to rush home, change my pants, and take the car to work instead, because it was just too darn dangerous! If you ride in the winter make sure your tires can handle it, and you have half the stability on ice that a car has, so just take it easy.
