Thats 2 places and hopefully more out there :-)
Wheel build on these may be a little suspect from one review. Not sure where yiu would get another 26x4 with 7 speed hub though
Am I the only one who thinks the wheels look ridiculous?
Also on eBay at this price from Argos based seller.
Cheers op.....bought the last one on Ebay......standby for it to be relisted

They do, but apparently it makes for a comfortable ride, I had a folding bike with big tyres (not this big) and it made a huge difference. However the bigger the wheel the harder it is to get going which might be fine if you're flying down a hill but not so much going up it.
None nearby, I've been looking for one of these or maybe a decent cheap mountain bike
To those complaining that there is no local stock why not order online? It's only £3.95 extra

An extra £3.95 must not be acceptable and people must wait for a free delivery code X)X)X)

Bangor N-Ireland has stock
22kg.. To put this in perspective my road bike is like 7.8kg and my mountain bike is 12kg.

This thing is HEAVY!
Looks like a bike a clown would ride
Ha ha, looks like someone's been to the garage and over used the air line X)
That's crazy heavy. Wouldn't fancy riding that up a hill. Or trying to stop it in a hurry.
this is a fat bike some people need to do some research. they are designed for snow \ sand etc and are generally an adventure type bike not a race rocket.There are now fat bike classes on some XC races however most serious riders will be spending over £1000.Still a hot deal for as a second bike for most

Well considering bike threads are where the clowns congregate, this deal won't miss the mark.
just checked stock in Stoke area as of Sunday at 1.16pm, there is stock at Argos Festival Park for immediate collection if any one fancies the offer.

Where is your red nose?
I have reserved one in stock, the only argos in the area with one in stock.
I am fat, so I thought it would be a good fit and a bit of fun.
17" frame is not very big though so I may have to donate it to a smaller fat bloke if it is too small for me to ride reasonably.
Once you've rode a fat, you'll never go back Awesome bikes. To the people who are saying, "they look like clown bikes", "they look ridiculous". Please, keep your zero fact based opinions to yourself. Because you really do know nothing. That is all

What's the advantage of this over say a 27.5 wheel? do you just run tyres at lower psi for more traction? what are people's uses for these sort of bikes? f

If the devil rode a bike this was it, clucking bell !
Dont even think about this 50lb dream bike I had a coyote piranha same bike for a day you try and peddle this thing even tho I can can do 35 miles in 2 hrs 20 on my daughters pink bike this bike to me looks wicked but I got so many negative reactions you won't keep it in 7th its too heavy as for sand you will never peddle it snow forget it if it lands on your leg you won't be peddling well in my opinion this bike is not fit for purpose as we all want to use it as normal road bike too its way too heavy 50lbs you cant outbike a mugger either

Nope, only good for kids riding around the estate. 7 Gears, useless for any hills. And the fat tyres give too much rolling resistance. And the weight. Just forget this bike unless you just want to try and look like a kid.

It says "Weight fully assembled 22kg" but the rest of your rant I totally agree with. If a mugger wants to nick this off you I suggest you let him have it and run, it'll be faster.
