One of the first models to challenge the paradigm of fat bikes as heavy and cumbersome, the Beargrease was one of the first (if not the first) carbon fat bike with a racey geo. While the Mukluk might be longer-running than the Beargrease, and the Bucksaw has squish both front and back, thanks to the ultra-low weights achievable on the Beargrease and the proven geometry, it’s obviously a fan favorite in the fat bike world, netting the #3 spot on our list. It was also voted the #1 fat bike in our 2014 survey.
