Try these tires on your mountain bike on the snow before buying a fat tire bike.
I live in the Methow Valley, Washington which is a mountain biking/cross country skiing destination with 200 kilometers of groomed ski trails, some of which have been opened for fat tire bikes, with tire presure less than 10 psi(or so). Obviosly, these bikes are heavy and slow and don't go up hill very well. Although I suspect that any non-studded tires will not work on hard ice, I have been very happy with my x-cty setup(40 psi) on most winter road conditions, including snow cover on frozen lakes, and this setup is way faster than a fat tire bike. My setup is less stable and does not work in deep snow where the fat tires have more float...but how often are you in deep snow unless you're doing the bike Ididerod?
Thank you for your feedback.
