Very comfortable and fast tires. Built in flat protection and they look cool. Round profile, but people tell me they look fat. They roll with very little resistance. The reflective strip on the sidewalls makes me feel safe at night, in the dark.

Schwalbe Fat Frank

Fast for such a fat tire. Great "suspension" on my rigid mtb. Performs great on singletrack & fire roads, and kicks butt on the street. I pump it up to 65 lbs for the street, and take it down to 35 psi for the trails. The brown color looks great with my old Brooks Saddle. I love this tire!

Embrace your inner Fatty, Frank

Let's get this out of the way: Schwalbe tires rule. There's nothing better for handling an urban commute than some smooth fat rubber.

With the Fat Frank you get all the city-loving goodness (no flats, reasonably speedy balloon-tire ride, and barca-lounger comfort. Plus, Frank adds the accent needed to pimp your ride.

Here's a recipe for good lookin' urban steed. Take one earth-toned bicycle frame. Add a honey-colored Brooks saddle, followed by upright bars with shellaced cork grip. Top of your creation with the brown franks and stir.

Mmmm-mmm... you are looking good tonight!

Pros: The Big Apple's no-flat ride, in a color that matches my lady's eyes.

Cons: Because they are so large and squishy, if the reflective strip (did I mention the reflective strip? No? Well, it's awesome) is even slightly miss aligned, you will sometimes look down and think your wheel is out of true. It's really not, and you get used to it (you can also sometimes adjust how the tire is seated on the rim). And frankly (get it?), I'd rather have a slightly oblong reflective strip on a Fat Frank than almost any other tire out there.

So really, this isn't much of a con, is it? I really suck at coming up with negatives for great products.

Oh,here's one. It holds a lot of air. And when you pump it up, it takes a long time. Even with a good pump. Don't even think about trying to get one of these up to high PSI with one of those mini pumps. You'd be there all day. Good thing these things almost never flat. Dang, I just nullified my con, again.

Oh, never mind. Just buy these tires.
