    Yeah, I guess I should have said "performance oriented"

    I've been in touch with Bram and I haven't seen anything other than the cardboard mock-up of a 36er...

    Forgot where I saw it, but there's a pic floating around the forums somewhere of a 36er with a modified AMP linkage fork. I'm guessing it'd be hard to make a 36er suspension fork with typical telescoping legs. Something like a long-legged Girvin with a disc tab would be sweet.

    Another challenge might be handlebar height, but... most people riding 36ers are tall enough that it probably wouldn't be an issue.
    Me also I would luv to have a full suspended 3-6 wheeled bike

    Suspension and making it work with reasonable handlebar height is awesome.
    Front hub is also very cool.
    Think they maybe misquoted him on the tires But all's good.
    Glad he's getting some good press for himself and the rest of us.
    Now to shave off about 15 lbs...

    Re: Poll: 36er tires

    Also said they'd be unfinished and not particularly round/true as they'd be rolled by hand. But that was a year ago when I last spoke with them.

    FWIW I'd take a set of undrilled, unfinished rims if they were significantly lighter than the current offerings. I just wasn't interested in bank rolling a run of 100 rims at basically full retail. When I spoke with Velocity we had discussed rolling their Blunt line (haha), but it looks like their new-this-month Dually would be AWESOME.

    EDIT: Dually in 36" should run about 250g lighter per rim than the Nimbus FYI and would give a little more float.

    That may have changed. They've been doing a lot with the new location from what they said.

    I don't know if lighter rims in exchange of weaker rims is a good trade off.
    I run the unicycles and was able to bend then (on a gnarly reception in a rock garden, I know, I know I was too fast, ahaha).
    So lighter and weaker doesn't sound like a good plan to me.
    Like these carbon fiber rims presented at Interbike for fat/snow bikes. I bet I (and my tall riders) will destroy them in couple of miles...

    I think a compromise of slightly lighter but still tough could be achieved. I hope to make myself a set of 36er carbon rims next year. I'm planning on a carbon/aramid mix.

    Won't go on much about that yet - counting my chickens as it were.
