It is not just super comfortable to ride the Fatbikes, they are practical as well. The fat wheels are not just for looks, they serve a purpose! When biking in Amsterdam you have to pay attention to trams coming out of nowhere and keep your eyes on the tracks as well! Normal wheels can get stuck in between them. In case you ride a bike without fat wheels, cross the tram tracks horizontally or diagonal! In case you’re riding a Fatbike, you have nothing to worry about! No getting stuck, no slipping and sliding, just sturdy fat wheels keeping you safe and comfy!
When you’re in Italy, you want to drive around on a Vespa. In Amsterdam? It’s a Knaap bike that gets you the approving nods from the locals. Of course, looks are not as important as your experience with the guide and discovering all about Amsterdam, but, it definitely adds to the flavour!
