    Anyone else remember "Tuff Wheels" from back in the day? I cannot help but think of those when I see those tri spoke Nexties. Nice looking machine BTW.

    Yowza - that's one helluva unique Bucksaw.

    Looking forward to seeing it dirty....

    looks like a light build. where's it tip the scales?

    Those 90's are a bit wide for this bike, though.

    Styling is subjective, I know. Glad you have a nice build that you like.

    For me, I would describe the styling as criminal - the kind of combo that you could get arrested for riding around on. Bold and daring!

    Nice call on the ATACs as well, not sure why they are not more popular.

    I have never ridden a 3 spoke wheel before. How do they ride? I am guessing stiff, but I don't know!

    Curious what the draw would be for a trispoke on a fat bike other than aesthetics? I've ridden plenty of miles on trispokes on TT bikes where it makes sense for aerodynamics, but the ride can be really jarring over rough surfaces. Doesn't seem like that'd be a plus for an off-road bike.

    Don't have to worry about jarring on a bucksaw
    More like riding a lazyboy down the trail hah.

    Interesting/surprising.
    Knowing my small AL, I would have guessed 30 or 30.5 at most.

    Do you have a weight on the wheelset?

    I laughed when I saw that. Not because it's funny or silly, but because it's so awesome! It's ridiculously awesome!

    I do remember my buddy with his Spin tri-spoke carbon MTB wheels. The rear hub broke loose from the wheel, but they were cool while they lasted.

    How much clearance in the back do you have with those 90mm on 4.0s? I have a fatbike hardtail with 90mm on van helgas and was thinking of buying a bucksaw frame. I was discouraged to see on their website that the official recommendation of up to 4 inch tires on 82mm rims. I have no problem pushing the envelope though!!

    Mine has 4 inchers on 65mm rims. Might want to rteach out to the guy who actually uses 90s and not me.
