    Anyone seen one of these...a 36er?

    I saw one of these coming at me while riding my SS to the trail head this AM. At first glance I thought it was a 29er cruiser, but as he passed me I realized just how huge the wheels really were. I figured you 29er afficionados would get a kick out of it (that is, if you've never seen one).

    Never seen one in real life.
    Nightfire is planning to weld his first frame ever to be a 36" mountainbike. I've posted some drawings of possible geometries in a thread quite resently. Search for "theory" and "trail", and it should come right up. A 36" mountainbike looks to be doable for riders 6'2" and up, without overly weird geometry to avoid toe overlap. It's going to be HUGE though. I want one.

    There are two of them in use as townie bikes in Crested Butte. Saw them all the time when I was there over the summer. A couple years ago, a guy at Chile Pepper in Moab was selling his. I was -this close- to buying it, but he scared me off talking about how much of a noodle they are. Right or wrong, he seemed to indicate that standing and mashing the pedals to accelerate might cause the thing to fold. Besides, I had no way to get it home. But they do look cool, eh?

    36" wheels? That would just be daft! ;-)

    Here's what I think it could be. See the bent or split seattube, in your mind.
    For a leggy 6'4" rider, not even too disproportionate. 35.5" wheels, measure that out next to your desk. Huge. 2cool.
