    New 36er rims and Tires!

    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.

    Mods - Please move to recycle bin or some other forum. I see no 29'er content.

    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 have been really excited by the developments in the big-wheeled world. I should hope that we could share this here.

    Ben,
    I agree some of the comments on this forum are moronic, but don't let it stop you from posting interesting topics.

    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.
