Fat tire electric bicycles are tons of fun for riding over all types of terrain, but their massive size usually makes them hard to transport when they aren’t being ridden.
Folding fat tire bikes are more rare, but they seriously open the door to new possibilities such as tossing your fat tire bike in a smaller car trunk or backseat.
