    Who’s buying ffatbikes?

    • Sean says:

      Sales have definitely cooled off versus a few years ago. The bikes haven’t changed much in the past couple years so most people I know are still riding 4-5 year old fatbikes. There is still a healthy secondary market for used bikes as some people have been upgrading to current models. Still pretty niche though and demand is pretty regional.
