    My 700c Dummy

    Don't know if this has been discussed but I found the upgrade to 700c with 32's made a world of difference for the long haul.

    Neat to see it done looks like you've got pretty strong wheels as well,
    What's the max size tire width you can fit in the frame front and rear?
    Does the bike ride more harsh (since less volume in tires ) with the skinnies?

    The front seems limitless, huge clearance with the Dummy Fork, The rear just fits the 32 in there nicely. 75#'s of pressure on a long bike feels good to me, handles all my tasks, rolls a ton faster, I prefer to cover more ground then spin my brains out. I recommend everyone try it !

    That's awesome! 26'' sucks (unless it's a pugsley.) I would totally do this if I had a dummy.

    For the Curious, Wideloaders work, just had to cut enough off the rear to line the snaps up.

    One of the cool things I dig about my Kona Ute is that it's already a 29er/700c, no surgery required. Not in the same class of carrying-ability as the BD though.

    700c YU MU

    Now im starting to wonder if I could throw some 700c wheels on mu Yu Mu. Could be fun on days when I felt like running lean and mean. I would run it fixed gear. Cool bike. Kind of brave cutting up a nice frame like that.
    P.S. Something is wrong with your tomatoes, they look like dried peppers. Better than my tomatoes though, I grew mine in empty vienna sausage cans instead of buckets and when they got big they just tipped over and died.

    Nice tomatoes!!!

    As for the clearance hack, yours was certainly more professional than my attempt, as I lacked a welder at the time. Right now, I still lack a welder… it’s just a trip to Harbor Freight away, I am sure.

    A 96er set up might yield a decent compromise...or perhaps 650b?
