    Setting up rim breaks on that would be pretty easy.

    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.

    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.
