Fat Boy by South Coast Cruzers
A Premier Fat Tire Bike
South Coast Cruzers’ most novel beach cruiser is the Fat Boy Cruzer. The Fat Boy, the premier two speed fat tire bike, features the latest in cruising and mountain bike trail riding, tires and wheels with 4.9 inch wide tires!
Frame Design. Our frame designers pay close attention the geometry of the frame to ensure our beach cruisers ride as good as they look. Frame geometry is an important and often overlooked aspect of bicycle design. Where the rider comfortably sits in relation to the cranks and the handle bars is vital in a well-design beach cruiser.
The other important aspects of frame design are appearance and materials used. South Coast Cruzers is committed to novel and attractive frame designs. Our designs are not “cookie cutter” designs offered by dozens of other manufacturers.
Component Choice. Most beach cruisers on the market will cut corners where you are not paying attention. They use steel handle bars and cover them with foam. They give you either double walled rims or heavy gauge spokes. South Coast Cruzers does both. South Coast Cruzers uses aluminum alloy components in all places that are practical. Our method produces the lightest, strongest, most corrosion resistant beach bike on the market. After all, we are in the beach cruiser bike industry.
The Fat Boy comes standard with 26 inch aluminum alloy rims and a “kick” Sturmey Archer 2 speed. Fat tire bikes are the newest rage in cycling used as both sand bicycles and snow bikes.
This South Coast Cruzer is as good in the soft sand as it is on the pavement.
