Behold! The Fat Ripper BMX

Behold! The Fat Ripper BMX


If you’ve been following this YouTube channel
you’ve seen swing bikes, tall bikes, and even bikes that are hard to call bikes. Today we’ll look at what is easily the most
belligerent bike I’ve ever seen—The SE Fat Ripper. With 26 by 3 and a half inch tires, it’s
definitely fat bike, but clearly it’s also a BMX. The Fat Ripper was designed and tested by
BMX legend Todd Lyons, who is brand manager for SE Bikes. In his video, you’ll see that the fat tires
turn bumps in the pavement into straight up ramps. It is Todd who sent over this bike for testing,
so today we’re going to do that Miami style. The first thing I noticed about the Fat Ripper
was how dope it looked. From the old school BMX adornments to the
SE Logo shaped cutouts in the rims, this thing turns heads. Another thing I noticed was that the massive
tires chirp every time the bike lands as the mass of the wheels adjust to their ground
speed. That’s the only thing you’ll hear when
the Fat Ripper lands, as these parts are battle ready. The Fat Ripper weighed in at 36 pounds, and
to be honest, I was surprised it wasn’t heavier. After all, this bike isn’t just for show,
it can handle the abuse you would expect from a BMX. Because of the weight, you need to be heavy
handed with the Fat Ripper if you want it to obey your commands. Staircases feel like nothing. Curbs are like kicker ramps. Ramps, are like—ramps. If you’ve jumped on a BMX, you’ll be able
to jump the Fat Ripper. I’ve ridden a BMX on mountain bike trails
before, and it’s a pretty rough ride on the chunkier sections. The Fat Ripper feels more like a fat bike,
but with BMX geometry that beckons you to take to the air. The rigid frame and bouncy tires make this
pig fly off everything. Like the other novelty bikes we’ve tested
on this channel, I can already smell the comments about how it’s just for attention, or that
it’s totally impractical. This vocal minority is kind of a sad bunch. The Fat Ripper is unapologetically flamboyant
and impractical, and that’s what makes it so awesome. It’s the perfect bike for the beach, social
rides, bar crawls, or even getting around town in an unruly manner. It weighs less than most cruisers, and is
more comfortable than most fat bikes. The Fat Ripper is the ultimate smile delivery
device, and I can’t stop riding it. I hope it put a smile on your face, because
we’ll be seeing a lot more of this bike around here. Thanks for riding with me today, and I’ll
see you next time. If you want to see the full assembly video

made on this bike to see what it can really do.

  4. Bike looks like blast to ride. I know it’s not traditional but how would it do on a longer ride? Like 3 miles city

  5. ! I have not seen a PK Ripper since my days of BMX racing in Egg Harbor Township…Loooooong time ago!

  6. Nothing Impractical about it.
    People over the age of 14 and or over 5'8" shouldn't ride BMX bikes.
    This bike was made to ride by real men.

  7. wiat so fat bikes have low pressure tires
    and bmx has high pressurec tires
    so what the hell psi do these tires take

  8. Awesome bike, ride, and music! Half the reason this bike looks so extreme is Seth's height, no offensive obviously seeing as you're able to shred with ease on it
