    the only certain detail would be no 100mm I am ready to hand money to some company willing to go 100 mm carbon!

    While 100mm would be nice...

    90mm will fit more frames.

    and they're coming.

    and do just fine comparatively speaking that the likelihood of anyone able to discern the diff is quite small if at all.

    Bike Rumor has several pictures and some more detailed information.

    There at 420 grams and may be able to go lower.

    111mm wide Buds on 65mm Marge Lites, 116mm wide Buds on 100mm Clown Shoes.... at 7-8psi.

    Unsure of the difference when deflated to snow pressures.

    On topic... im liking these carbon rim offerings, but a lil birdie told me Stans are working on a fat rim, im a little more excited about the latter.

    Most impressed. With 420g rims, our latest prototype hits 19.3lbs, and that is with alloy frame and fork.

    Yep, Stan is working on a rim that shows some promise. I bugged him daily about getting into the fat scene last fall, and we buy tens of thousands of his regular rims every year, so I guess that helped, along with similar requests (I'm sure) from other PM and RD guys.

    The HED rim looks like it will collect snow/ice really nicely in the central valley.

    I'd even be happy with some between 47-60mm for summertime fun...

    Agreed, one of the best fat bike related names I've seen!

    This seems to be a recurring them with you--that no one 'needs' X. Consider that just because *you* don't need it, or have never ridden in situations that demand it, doesn't mean that the same holds true for all.

    Think the "Eight Eight" by the valve stem means 88mm?

    You are incorrect with the assumptions. My point is well intended and real with regard to ones ability to ascertain the diff of a 80mm rim VS a 100mm rim with said same tire and as Ozzy pointed out with his measurements there's 5mm diff between a 65mm ML VS a 100mm CS on Buds with 7-8psi so therein lies quantitative feedback worthy of praise/proof.

    In short nothing recurring from my side as thats not how i roll.

    Knob shoulder width of Bud on 65 vs. 100mm is 118 vs. 112mm, while max casing width (more critical for flotation) is 119mm vs. 105mm, but still less of a difference than one would think. Bud is massive even on skinny rims.

    I think they only real world comparo would be to measure the width of the tire track in sand/snow at the same psi between both wheels.

    I am thinking because a CS would have more volume you could run lower pressures w/o worry of rim strikes. Less psi, more float, smiley face.

    I would also imagine that a but/lou's profile or shape on a ML vs a CS is alot different. Which is better for what application? Would a bud/lou flatten out better at low psi on a CS because it already starts out much more flat vs. a ML?

    True. Over here, I rode 7 consecutive months in powder last winter, so we are big fans of flotation. That is why we are coming out with a 103mm rim for our Mk3 bikes.
    Vee Snowshoe on the new rim is going to rock.

    I would be more worried about the engine driving those 5mm wider clownshoe/4.8" combo than the 5mm skinnier Margelite/4.8" combo....

    No point running rally tyres if the car is sh1t !
