    Best Rim options for SC 32 AND Duc 32

    Hi everyone, I have an SC 32, and need a RIM as I can not use the stanard stock pugsley offset Large Marge. I have the Maverick hub, and plan to mount on the 3.8" Larry.

    Can you suggest the fattest Rim and manufacturer I could use for the SC 32??

    I am also considering getting a Duc 32 as an alternative. I believe that the best Rim option there is 47 mm TrialTech. Can anyone weigh in on best rims for Duc 32, as well?

    Dr Feelygood - love the Duc on your ride!

    I am in New Jersey, btw, so have to look for US suppliers.

    Thanks in advance.

    Uma 50mm fits the SC32 fine for jersey too because it won't get singed up on the rocks. I am from jersey to. See Craig at high gear cyclery to build it. He has built all my fat wheels.

    I've had no issues with the Darryl up front on a SC32. It rubs at the end of the travel on my DUC, but not horridly....

    Fat as you can go? Darryl. More clearance matters to you?

    What ^he^ said.

    Anthony, have a look on here for some options:-

    26" Rear Rims

    I`m pretty sure they ship to the USA.

    I went for the Trail Tec rims without cutouts because I`m heavy and like my components bombproof.

    There are lighter options in the above link.

    Larrys on a 47mm rim come out at 88mm wide. In a DUC, this leaves some mud clearance even at max travel.

    Cheers,
    Dr FG

    Mondon Cycle Smith, on the Darryl up fron on a Duc 32... you mentioend it rubs a little at top of the suspension. Is that rub and stop, flip you over the handlebars, arms waving in the air, prepare for a faceplant if you bottom it out rub? or more like an annoying, slow you down, a little bothersome but not potentially life threatening rub?

    Also, any reason why the Darryl and not a large marge? (apologies if there's an obvious answer - learning about these rims.)

    thanks,
    Anthony

    When I ran the 65mm LMs I had tons of dings from NJ off roading. Just saying. With the 50's I barley have any.

    thanks, bighit and dyultimate.

    bighit - checked out your referral for high gear. yes, they seem to really know their stuff. thanks. I have a few options closer to me here in florham park, but i dont think they are as experienced with fatbikes. I may pm you with some additional ques if you don't mind.

    thanks,
    anthony

    Sorry, out of town for the weekend...

    For me? I never even notice it, it simply scuffs the anodization. The dirtier the ride, the more apparent the rubbing. I run some strips of 20 mil Cranks Skins material on them, no issues.

    Large Marge is a narrower rim than the Darryl, for about the same weight. So the choice for me, on a fat bike, was a no brainer.

    No problem. Craig has been building my wheels and dealing with my fat bikes since the original pugs hit the scene.

    What are the thoughts on the following set-up:

    Maverick DC32 fork.
    80mm GFS rim.
    45NRTH Husker du tyre.

    Looking at the HD, it doesnt look any taller than a standard Larry. But maybe the knobs are a little bigger, and will cause issues.

    Cheers for any feedback.
