surly large marge!..26"- 65mm wide...lol
WOw is it strong.........are you riding it??
Setting up rim breaks on that would be pretty easy.
it's a prototype ,soon to be out.I found the pic's when I got directed to a uni site .I"f you could get it to fit .... drill some big fatty hole's in it.... would be sweet. this guys running it on a uni.. check the crazy lace job...48 hole hub.... 32 hole rim
its not a prototype, we have three of them in my shop.
not only that, $65 wholesale
yea....all 97lbs of it, i think it would rub my seat stays, let alone my brakes
save it for the snow.
save it for a burning barrel in the back yard
Rape the guy next time! He's just showing something he thought was new. Cunts. :bigthumb:
hahaha, that's so absurdly big it's funny
I thought it was new... every pic I saw said prototype.. shows ya I'm out of the loop..I still wear my parachute pants with my members only jacket and a ramones t-shirt listening to the clash, sportin my checkered vans slip-on's when I ride my gt trials prototype mod telling everyone to call me Hans!
LOL the rim tapes look so small. That's one wide-ass rim!
Yeah...those things are insane...never saw one in person, but I can't imagine that being good for anything.....natty stability??? That hub flange looks sick though....
I can't imagine gaining any noticeable stability from a rim that's wider than your tyre. Anything so off-camber or a landing with enough sideways inertia that you could gain advantage from such stability, would be enough to taco your wheel anyway.
that and you could probably trackstand without doing anything
they use really wide rims for snow riding, Surly just took this idea and made it into regular mtb technology, for no apparent reason. I cannot see one way in which they would benefit from this or make any money whatsoever.
i have never seen one o na bike nor know of a bike which could even utilize this shit that can accept them in their chainstays
Custom snow rigs are about all that can fit/use those rims. Some of those things are nuts. Many of the custom ti fabricators had snow rigids at interbike. Crazy.
