    I want a nice chopper or cruiser but with fat tires. How does the chain make it around the tire?

    And would it be a good choice?

    Very good choice if you can hold a wrench. Fat tires on a single speed could require a hub adapter, in a worse case scenario you'll need a motor offset as well.

    What bike are you thinking of doing?

    Well I'm still debating cause I really like micargi rover ft-r but I'm also thinking of getting a mtb cause I live in the desert and I'm always riding through there. But I would think that would be a lot of stress on the bike, or would a mtb hold up

    I'm sure a MTB would hold up better than a cruiser because they are built to do a lot more:)

    I would suggest any real real mountain bike, they have mountain bikes by huffy, but they are mountain bike styled, when you look at the detailed information they say rather specifically that they are intended for road use only, not trails or off road. Then better style bikes, like mongoose, as you head up the line, are considered true mountain bikes, but mongooses shouldn't be used for jumps or downhill unless specifically designed for it.

    So I would recommend any mountain bike, but remember what you pay for is what you'll get, if it's a hundred dollar adult mountain bike styled bike, then you'll have a 25 dollar hunk of metal with a 400% markup.

    Steel is the best bet, don't do aluminum.
