- Recommend me a workhorse fat bike.
Not a lot out there these days under £1k, a few I spotted…

I don’t know anything about racks tbh but the Dune has some sort of boltholes on the stays which might be rack mounts. Or might not, who knows. It’s not 1x but who cares, it costs £450 less than your budget so you could put bloomin Eagle on it and still be under. Though actually the 2×8 is perfectly solid.Posted 2 years agojonm81Subscriber
Bought an 18″ Felt DD70 when Merlin had more stock. Upgraded to Shimano hydraulic brakes and 1×11 and still less than £1k all in. Rides really nice and lighter than it looks. More of an XC geometry than other fatbikes and the steeper head angle makes the steering a bit nimbler than others I have ridden. Only downside is the bottom bracket is quite low so sometimes get pedal strike if not careful on corners or over rocks/roots.
It’s taken some abuse over the last year but still going strong. Think CycleLane.co.uk has some at just over £800.Posted 2 years ago
