Giant tyres on bicycles

One of many things alerting me to my lack of pop culture knowledge.

What’s the deal with them? Easier ride?

So kids can do wheelies for longer

this might not be true but, it seems to be the biggest status symbol round salford massive tyres and wheeling down Langworthy

Got it. Perfect. Thank you.

Purely cosmetic, for monster truck enthusiasts

It’s so cyclists can ruin otherwise enjoyable walks in the forest and countryside

Yeah don’t really understand how you wheelie on that but I’m not a cyclist so

I like my tyres like I like my men

With the tread worn down to a dangerous degree

Wider tyres, tubeless, 80-85 psi seems very en vogue atm

I used to regularly see a local eccentric who rode around in a huge bike with really thick tyres, and he was always blasting music out of a Bluetooth speaker he had secured to the handlebars. I miss him.

Remember on formentor when the youths on electric fat bikes shot past all us lycra wankers.

Felt very uncool that day

What’s it gonna be, cause I can’t pretend
Don’t you wanna be, wider tyres, tubeless, 80-85 psi

I’ve not really been outside much this year - are fat tyres still a thing then?

Loads of the kids around here had them a few years back - good for pulling wheelies

Are you suggesting your entire area of London knew what it was before everyone else knew what it was, Marckee
