Alright, since quite a few of us have bought the $199 Walmart Mongoose Beast Fat Bike, I thought I would start this thread to show how I am "building" mine and share some ideas. I also want to invite anyone else who isn't going to do their own build thread to share their photos in this thread so that this can be a resource to others buying the bike or just looking for information on them. Mine arrived yesterday from a little van: In a big box: Since I had never seen a fat tire bike in real life, opening the box was a real surprise, the tires are HUGE! I noticed today that just like Rat Rod's bike, mine too has some scratches on the down tube from something loose in the box, but it went together quickly, here it is out of the box stock: This stuck up a little too far for my liking: So I did this (it saved a little over an ounce of weight): Here are some bar/stem ideas. The stem that comes on the bike is a 1 1/8" threaded, I like it, but I had a 1 1/8" threaded to threadless adapter, and I will be using it with a mountain bike stem (as seen in the photo). I am using the bullhorn bars, they are very light, made by Scott in USA, I will be wrapping them with bar tape. If anyone is interested in buying it, I have the long reach Matrix stem in the photo available: I am NOT doing this, but it fits well if anyone else wants to do something like this. This is off of an OCC Chopper: Just for a size reference, besides the tires being about 3 times wider, it's also taller than my 29er tires! That's all for now, feel free to add your photos and ideas as you build your Beast!
