But where do you start?

By understanding the specific purposes for which you'll be using the fatbike, you can choose a model that best suits your needs and provides the necessary features, comfort, and reliability for your desired riding scenarios.

Asking yourself what you will be using the bike for, how often you will use it, and how many kilometers you will cover per week or per month. Consider what kind of maintenance will be required and how often you will need to perform maintenance.

  1. How often do you plan to use the fatbike? Will you be riding regularly, such as daily, weekly, or occasionally on weekends?

  2. How many kilometers do you expect to ride per week or per month with the fatbike? This will help determine the features and specifications you need, such as battery range and comfort.

  3. What maintenance is required for the fatbike? Inquire about the maintenance tasks needed, such as tire inflation, chain lubrication, and general inspection. Also, consider whether you prefer to do the maintenance yourself or have it outsourced.

  4. How often will you need maintenance? Depending on your riding style and the conditions you ride in, regular maintenance may be required. Think about things like annual tune-ups, tire replacements, or brake adjustments.

When considering the usage of the fatbike, think about the following scenarios:

  1. Solo rides: If you primarily plan to ride alone for leisure or exercise, focus on factors like comfort, maneuverability. Consider features like suspension, brakes, ergonomic handlebars, and versatile tire tread patterns to suit various riding conditions
  2. School rides with the kids: If you plan to use the fatbike for rides with your children to school, you may want to prioritize features like stability, comfort, and the ability to attach accessories such as child seats or cargo carriers.

  3. Work commute: If you intend to use the fatbike for commuting to work and back, consider factors like distance, business appearance and trustworthy Look for a fatbike with good range, sturdy construction, and possibly features like fenders or lights for enhanced visibility.

  4. Riding with a partner: If you plan to occasionally ride with a loved one on the back of the fatbike, look for a model with a strong frame and an appropriate weight capacity. Consider features like a comfortable rear seat, sturdy footrests, and efficient braking systems to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for both riders.

By answering these questions, you will gain a clearer understanding of what you are looking for in a fatbike and what features and maintenance needs are important to you. This will help you narrow down your search and ultimately find the perfect fatbike that suits your needs and riding style.


As a final tip, once you have found your dream fatbike & model, consider searching for it on second-hand sales platforms such as Marktplaats or 2dehands.be. Take a look at the advertisements for your desired bike. If you notice many listings with captions like "new," "ridden only once," or "not really my thing," it can provide valuable insight.

Why are so many people looking to sell their fatbikes shortly after purchasing them? This could indicate that the bike didn't meet their expectations and quality, didn't suit their riding style, or simply wasn't the right fit for them. It's worth considering these factors when making your own purchasing decision.

However, it's important to keep in mind that not all second-hand listings indicate a negative experience. Some individuals may simply be looking to upgrade or change their riding preferences. So, carefully evaluate the details and condition of the bike in question before making any judgments.

By exploring both new and used options, you can make a more informed decision and potentially find a great deal on your dream fatbike. Good luck with your search, and we hope you find the perfect bike that brings you endless joy and excitement on your fatbike adventures!
