This Bicycle Rides on Car Tires
I’ve always preferred riding mountain bikes to road and hybrid bikes, thanks to their wider and more forgiving tires and suspension systems. I’ve seen some fat tire bikes before, but nothing quite like this. What you’re looking at here is a bike that rides on actual car tires.
