SE F@E Fat Bike
Pedal through winter snow, desert sand, (or any trail, for that matter) with the SE F@E Fat Bike - the monster truck of bikes. The F@E (say "fatty") is built around a custom-tapered 6061 alloy frame and rigid alloy fork with a tapered 1-1/8" - 1.5" headset that are plenty strong and built for spirited riding. A wide-range, 3x9-speed Shimano drivetrain delivers renowned durability and precision while the Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes will keep you out of trouble. Of course there's a wonderfully stout and oversized set of 26x4.0" fat bike tires on a super-strong set of alloy wheels that feature a thru-axle rear for added strength and stiffness. Bottom line - you'll have a smile from ear-to-ear no matter where the F@E takes you.
  • Custom-tapered 6061 alloy frame and rigid alloy fork with tapered steerer tube are super-strong
  • Shimano 3x9-speed shifters, derailleurs, and cassette deliver smooth gear changes

  • 44/32/22T triple crankset combined with 11-34T 9-speed cassette provide all the gearing necessary for fat tire adventures

    Best bang for the buck out there...period! I couldn't find anything else on the market even close in value. Hydraulic brakes, aluminum, tapered headset. Received in 2 days.

    Assembly a breeze in about 30 minutes

    I am 5'5" with a 28" inseam and the small (15") bike fits me like a glove.

    First road test yesterday and decided I am selling my old 29er mountain bike. I didn't put this bike on the scale but seems as light as my old MTB. (seems lighter than the 37 # claimed).

    Comments about SE Bikes SE F@E Fat Bike:

    This thing is FUN. Well put together, although I did have to adjust the rear derailleur after the first ride due to the mount not being properly tightened, but I should have checked all that before going out. You really can do anything on this bike, the only thing I've found I could not traverse was 12 inches of slush with mud under it! Snow, mud, sand, thing goes really well. It is heavy, but I didn't buy this as a race rig for myself (though there are fat bike races near me from time to time). It is the perfect bike to go out when all others fail and the price can't be beat.

    Decent bike but has a serious flaw, in my opinion.

    Comments about SE Bikes SE F@E Fat Bike:

    This bike is equipped with decent enough components for the price when it is 25-30% off, but has a serious flaw. The rims are 100mm wide and the tires are 4" wide. This makes the rims wider than the tires. This causes two problems. 1. The knobs on the tires don't come anywhere near the edge of the tire which makes cornering very difficult because you are corning on the sidewalls. 2. Because the rims are wider than the tires the rims will get beat to death if you ride rocky areas. The bike should have wider tires or narrower rims. (the rims weigh a ton) It appears the frame will accept wider tires but replacing them with wider tires or replacing the rims and/or wheelset is not cost effective.

        Comments about SE Bikes SE F@E Fat Bike:

        Haven't purchased a bike in 20+ years because I still have and ride my converted to hybrid 92' Specialized RockHopper Sport and my 85' Motobecane Tri-bike with some updated accessories. Decided to jump untried into Fatty biking at this price point (in Dec 2016 with 30% off coupon not including overweight shipping charge and taxes). Hoped to ride in Chicago north suburban winter snow and summer beaches. These bikes are beefy looking!

        I'm 5'7 with a 20" inseam, so I had to decide between a 15" (small) or 17" (medium). Since it had an aggressive angled top bar, I'm not getting any taller, and from the spec diagram, I went with the 15" frame. I'm glad I did, however I like almost full extension of my legs when riding and feel at times like a lot of seat post is exposed.

        I've ridden it in 4-6" of pristine powder and it was definitely fun, but very cold and I was not conditioned or as prepared as I preferred to be. Lowered pressure in tires and handled okay if rolling thru others tracks. Need a more aggressive tires for better traction. Did fine in 3" snow and slush except needed fenders which I recently purchased (SKS Fat Fenders). Didn't see much of difference between my bike and $1000 Austrian models in handling.

        Not snowing since and I've been using it in the cold weather (dress warm) with full tire pressure on dry pavement. I can really get going on dry pavement, but still slower and definitely a workout. Mindset for these monsters especially in the snow, is..."it is a marathon not a sprint".

        I get a lot of looks! Not a lot of fatties around here yet. Definitely heavier then other bikes I own, but my research rated this F@E was lower range at 34-35lbs compared to any other fat bikes. That and price point were talked about often in comparisons as positives. Assembly was pretty easy, I'm mechanically inclined, however I did have it checked at a Performance Store. Build quality is good. Paint seems to clip easily. I would have preferred some more colorful rim and frame offerings like Motobecane and Minnesota, but not worth the extra $$. Components are good. Love the disc brakes. Stock seat is too hard for my butt (replaced it with a Bontrager Gel). Bike is solid and still is after the cold weather rides.

        Added accessories.....
        - Nashbar water bottle cage
        - Cycglo Metro 500 Headlight
        - SKS quick release Fat Fenders
        - Nashbar Deluxe Rodeo Clipless Pedals
        - Cateye Wireless Micro Bike computer
        - Nashbar Suspension Seat post 27.2
        - Seat post shim 3.7mm (30.9 to 27.2)
        - Nashbar Quick Release Bike Rack
        - Nashbar Trunk Bag

        I would definitely recommend this bike and love Nashbar!

          Just went out for the maiden ride. I was reluctant to add another bike to the fleet but the price was hard to resist. This Fat bike is ideal for mountain biking in West Virginia 365 days a year. We have a lot of different styles of riding but the conditions are always changing. The low pressure tires and massive surface area allow you to float through mud and ice with no problem. The drive train is suitable that required a little tweaking to shift properly. The geometry of the bike makes for a compact cockpit that encourages stability. I am 6 ft and went with the 19 in which works. Overall for the money you can't go wrong.

          I have been watching Nashbar Fat Bikes for a while and missed getting the Nashbar branded one in my size - went out of stock early in the season. When this bike came up at a ridiculously low price and in my size, I jumped on it. Absolutely no regrets thus far! Have spent a few hours on the trails and having a ball - so glad to get out and off the roads. It is a tank - but comfortable and capable. The hydraulic brakes are great. The large chainring on the front is really a waste though - I don't expect to ever be going fast enough to use it.

          Unless you are comfortable with putting bikes together, you may need help with this one as the instructions are bit lacking.

              Comments about SE Bikes SE F@E Fat Bike:

              After seeing so many smiling faces on fat bikes this past season, I wanted to give it a go and am very glad I did. The price/spec on this bike made the gamble too hard to pass up.

              I only have a couple rides on it but it is a solid, very well functioning bike. While it's way heavier than my carbon 29er, it doesn't seem outrageous for the price point or application. I did forego the stock seat and seat post which are unnecessarily heavy but all else is stock. I'll be swapping out tires shortly since they're so integral to the experience, but honestly these feel fine. I'm hoping to get a tubeless conversion to stick (wouldn't seal with stock tires.) I'm going to enjoy wearing out and upgrading parts on this one over the winter.
              You will not likely regret this one!
