Winter is a bit of an interesting time, especially here in Northern Utah. Cyclists here are treated to beautiful spring weather, balmy summers, and colorful falls that reward them for being outside. It can be tough, however, when snow and ice prohibit riding on the usually-frequented trails. Luckily for us, Scott have introduced the Scott Big Jon fat tire bike, a bike whose wide tires conquer that same snow that prohibited two-wheeled rowdiness before.
The biggest achievement for the Scott Big Jon comes in its packaging efficiency. At its price, it comes with a thoroughly well-designed frame. To fit a huge tire, many fat bike frames compromise, meaning calves or heels hit the rear triangle. Others settle for wonky geometry that limits how confidently a rider can shred on snow. The Big Jon has none of these problems; not only does it handle well, but you’ll be able to ride without heels or calves constantly hitting the bike. Outside of that, the bike handles about as confidently as any fat bike does; it absolutely floats exactly where any other bike falters, but it feels in its element carving down twisty singletrack.
At just 32 pounds, the Scott Big Jon is lighter than many other fat bikes, at a much lower cost. It comes spec’d with an alloy frame and fork, a Shimano Deore 2×10 drivetrain with a Raceface RXC crankset, 80mm-wide Syncros wheels, and Schwalbe Jumbo Jim Evo 26 x 4.8” tires. If you’re getting stir-crazy during the winter and want a well-priced fat bike, look no further.
If you’re looking for a bike that effortlessly floats over sand, snow, and just about anything in front of it, the Scott Big Jon is a great choice. This particular model is a 2018 and is offered in Size Small. Please refer to the attached geometry chart to help determine the best fit for you.
