I'd by the top, and maybe the bottoms but wouldn't wear them together. I seem to like bright colours lately...

Unfortunately I'm banned by the other half from buying any more black tops due to looking too ninja-stealth-like in the dark (not really a good look for commuting on the roads).

I just went into Go Outdoors and spotted they had a £500 neon green fatbike, Ho Ho I thought, I bet that thing weighs a ton. It didn't, so if you want a fatbike go and check it out.

Another in depth review there from me.

Following on from my briefly displayed quick response yesterday (which I deleted as it probably wasn't helpful) I have a little more time this evening

I've never been the one to criticise cheap bikes as I've always gone along the lines of cheap is better than no bike but fats a little differnet on the basis that its unlikely to be your only bike...especially on this forum.

The linked bike currently only available in a Medium size & the official weight is 31.9ibs although the actual is a little more, even so thats still a good weight for a fatty, the weight saving is in the tyres though as they are sub 1kg each...the average is between 1.4 to 1.8 kgs each. From the owners I know about they all say its a small medium & without fail they have all put in longer seat posts. My first concern would be long seat posts in cheap frames & the stresses on the junctions but that's by the by.
These bikes come with a very cheap quality square drive tapered bottom bracket & is prone to failure fairy quickly & then you need to source a better quality long square drive bottom bracket which apparently isn't too easy as Fat bikes have much longer bottom brackets than normal bikes. The desired route for owners seems to be to replace the chainset & bottom bracket fairly quickly too.
The brakes are total shite, everybody changes them virtually after their first ride.
The Jumbo Jim tyres are a good summer tyre, a pair of Jumbo Jims will cost you a good part of £160 but not great in the winter, if you intend to ride it all year (and why wouldn't you fat are so much more fun in the mud than your normal bike).
The gears & shifters are not great & shifting is fairly poor but adequate to start but the general opinion on these has been to use them over the winter & start afresh in the summer...

Factor in new brakes straight away, £180 for new tyres if you're planning to ride it over the winter, new bottom bracket fairly soon & possibly new Chainset to suit if you don't want to keep changing it.

On the brightside they are trail orientated like the On One Fatty, a lot of Fat bikes aren't & everybody likes the colour.

My advise is to do the maths before you outlay the £600, for the same money you can buy a decent second hand one with a proven track record
