    Topic changed to meet forum criteria.

    I'm building a new 29er commuter, is there a 29er specific kickstand?

    I think it's pretty neat. I don't know about using 36er stuff off road as of yet, but it certainly looks like it'd be very good for on-road/rough road commuting.

    I should add that I like the 36'er stuff just because I like bikes.
    If I had a million dollars I'd have a 24", 25", 26", 27", 27.5", 28"..... prolly stop around 45". Then it just gets silly.

    I like 'em all too, but your right. Anything over 45" is just silly.

    The availability issue on Dorthy's was due to the welder not producing what he agreed and was paid to do. Had nothing to do with the shop that was going to be the exclusive retailer for the new brand.

    I can't say I have been _really_ excited about developments in the 36"er realm, but I'm disappointed with whatever went down here and that I can't read what was posted originally and keep informed about what's out there. Or is that not it at all?

    Ben why Kirk Pacenti simply started abruptly out of the blue with 584mm concept and genedered many enthusiasts and you did not? Have you thought cooperating with him on 36er project. Finally he can change his mind about 36ers. Use rear shocks as susp. forks similar to German- A forks.
    Go for it.

    I hope I didn't contribute to any nonsense that made you feel like pulling the info. I've read all the 36" wheel threads. I'm not sure why as I don't think I'll ever have room in the stable for one, but I would love to ride one, and dare I say, own one. One of those "if I had extra money and time to ride more bikes" kinda things.

    I'll admit I even thought to myself "What would a hundie feel like on that bike?"

    Oh well. Post up the information and the heck with the naysayers.

    You have a dog in this fight? Just curious because I do and I have a completely different take on the situation. I'll give you a hint: It aint Ben's fault.

    Regardless, there's no reason to make comments like this. Just plain juvenile.

    Jake'Dog. You and I, and those who know what happened, realize that it's not at all Ben's fault.

    Further, it is a testimate to Ben's integrity and character as a genuine "good guy" that he hasn't come on here and thoroughly explained exactly what DID happen. He's above that, he's not going to come on here and blast any current or former business partners that severely did him wrong.

    I encouraged him to sue, but for the ~$20k that was basically stolen from him, his legal fee's would probably make the whole thing not worth it. Either way, one may note that he's not only above dragging his dirty laundry on the site, he simply isn't interested in the BS that happens on here enough to get dragged down.

    Ben, brother, hang in there. Rest assured that all of us out here who KNOW what happened are behind you.

    For what it's worth, I would be interested in seeing the info, as I suspect a few others are. To Go Kart Nazi, hitting your back button is a lot faster way to get away from this "non 29er content" than typing some d!ck head response.

    Martini, thanks for throwing the info. up. I don't understand what the hell's up with GoFartMozart either, but it didn't seem to fit into this thread. I'm really intrigued with the whole 36er thing too; it's always fun to see the progression of something from conception.

    ~martini~: Thanks for posting that link.

    I for one think that the 36"ers are very welcome here. Having actually ridden one, I feel that I can also say it is more smile inducing, more fun, and more practical than you could imagine.

    Ben, please repost the 36" info in a new thread. I came back to this to get the details.

    Go Kart, you leave the thread alone. If you do not want to read about 36" wheels/tires, do not click on the thread. The content was clearly stated in the title. Your "contribution" to this thread was rude, unnecessary and borderline in violation of the posting guidelines. You have been warned.

    I was also caught up in the Dorothy mess. Ben was great to deal with. After the frame deal didn't happen Ben was gracious enough to sell me the other parts at the lower complete build price W/O the frame.

    He didn't have to do that, but it shows his integrity.

    Ben, talk to you soon.

    How much would a 36" Rampage or Nevegal weight? Any tubeless wheels /rims on the gorizon? A 36" crossmaxes?

    "Ignore" list is what he needs. Back in the early days of the Internet, actually ArpaNet, 14 years or so back, (no web twits) we called it a "kill file"; put a name in there, and all their posts went to the bit bucket. Then we got a "twit list" that just hid their crap, like the "ignore list" here.

    I miss kill files, damned PC bullchit.

    Take a standard issue calculator. Hit 36/29= and then *(weight of Nevegal). Your answer is there.

    Early 36" tires were low-quality, probably because of the technology available to the makers. Car/motor tire makers. Thick, THICK casings, ahrd rubber. Perhaps high-quality for a car, but overly bulky for a bicycle not being pushed over the edge too much.

    The info in the link is awesome! 36x2.25, on a 38mm rim?!! That's so schwicked! 1660kg is a lot of weight to push though. ;-)

    Thanks for that, Ben. I'm ravenous for more pics if you actually get these mounted on one of your bikes. Please keep posting. You're pushing boundaries, buddy, and almost everyone here is excited about the pics/info you post.

    The 29er-related 'rule' is bunkum anyhoo. How many 'which hub/seatpost/stem/chain/...' threads go un-flamed? You know, if this were the bigwheel forum this would all be a non-issue. Jus' sayin'.

    Frostbike 2007 there were several big wheel bikes out front.

    The std. 26 inch wheel did OK in the snow, Pugs rolled better and what a fun ride. You can tell this is really a snow ride.

    29ers did fine in the snow, but need a wider footprint to have the float of a pug or keep your speed up as not to sink in the snow.

    The 36" wheel bike was there as well and it was fun to ride and did quite well in the snow. Thought it is a bit much for trail riding and needed some development, but it was neat to see and ride.

    Where did you talk about 29ers when they were new and this forum did not exist? Stop all innovation and new stuff. I like your ostrich attitude.

    How about don't open a thread that has a different number than 29, i.e. if it says 36er, move on?

    Then go hang with him. The OP has been bringing new 29er content as well as other content for a long time. At least he's a valuable contributor.
