Re: Bike with fat wheels

Hehe, a lot of non-believers out there - this article explains the concept of wider tyres having lower rolling resistance quite nicely:

https://cyclingmagazine.ca/sections/...ng-resistance/

Of course, as said previously, rolling resistance isn't everything - many other factors play a role in how 'fast' a tyre setup is in the real world. There's a reason why roadies don't race on fat bikes.
It's not only resistance. Don't underestimate the factor of the additional rotation weight.
