What are the differences??? Confused

Postby Sharp1 » Mon Nov 27, 2017 8:44 pm

Greetings everyone! I am in search of a Fatty, but I am confused on what the differences are between all the different Mongoose bikes (Dolomite, Hitch, Malus)

I am 6'1" and 250lbs. Looking to get a fat tire bike to use while hunting, to get back into the woods further down fire lanes, RR tracks, etc.

From what I can tell the Malus may be a more refined version of the Dolomite, is this a true statement? Also, is the Hitch exactly the same as the Malus, if not what are the differences?

You pretty much have it figured out. One major thing to note though, if you want a 4 1/2 or 5" wide tire, the Hitch and Malus will not accommodate the wider fat tires.
It's a trade-off of a little refinement vs. Wider tire sizes.
The stock Malus 26x4 tires actually measure 4 3/8" wide and it won't hold much more.
