Specialized Fatboy 20″ and 24″ Preview
If you hadn’t already heard, The Specialized Fatboy has been a popular bike ever since it’s launch last year, and the interest in fat bikes is growing more and more every year. The big question for riders who already know the allure of fat bikes is – when are they going to make a kid’s version? The following Fatboys are reported to be coming soon, but as of now, delivery and pricing is not published for the US market.We got the following info from the internet and put it together in one place to give you the answer to questions you might have. Take a look at these great looking models for the little rippers – we’ll keep you posted as soon as they’re available for order and in Erik’s locations.
UPDATE – The first shipment of these bikes is expected in mid-december, and both sizes will retail for $999.99. We will have information on our website by the end of the weekend here, but you can pre-order one today at any of our 22 Erik’s locations.
2015 Specialized Fatboy 24
Inspired by the adult version of the Fatboy, the 2015 Specialized Fatboy 24 is built on a fully-butted A1 Premium Aluminum frame and fork and features a 1×9 drivetrain anchored by a Sram X4 rear deraileur and a trigger shifter. Designed for kids on the go, the aluminum rims are a fat-specific (90 mm ride) 24 inch disc rim with 32h lacing and Specialized Ground Control 24×4.0 tires. Hub spacing is 170mm in the rear. Stopping power comes by way of a Tektro Aries mechanical disc brake.
2015 Specialized Fatboy 20
The only thing the 2015 Specialized Fatboy 20 skimps on is size. Built on a fully-butted A1 Premium Aluminum frame and featuring the same 170mm rear hub spacing and the same SRAM X4 1×9 drivetrain. Featuring 20×4.0 Ground Control tires, young riders should have no problem going where mom and dad go on their full sized fatties. See the colors below – these are preliminary colors and could change slightly depending on availability. Like the 24 inch model, the Fatboy 20 is equipped with Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes. Geometry for both bikes is available at the end of the post.
