    1x1/Alex/Endo?

    Fellow Surlyites,

    I'm sure this question has been asked too many times, but I'll ask anyway. Will an Endo on an Alex DX-32 rim fit in a 1x1?

    Thanks and Happy Solstice!

    I put an Endo on a Rhynolite and it didn't fit in the back. The tire is too tall.

    Not sure if it'll fit in the fork, but I'd guess it would be close.

    Thanks

    That's what I thought and it probably won't work with the DX-32 either. I have everything but the Rim and will post my findings when I get one.

    Thanks again,

    Pat

    Are you trying to fit it in the fork or as the rear?

    When you get it built up please post the measurement. I noticed that the Troll has a lot of space above the canti posts and was wondering if a Larry would fit on a narrow rim...

    from everything i've read you arne't going to fit anything larger then a 3" out back... up front it's prob about the same... but you can change the fork pretty easily ;-)

    here are a few posts i've bookmarked about the 1x1 for fat bike (and a 29er) info... basically you can run up to a large marge (68mm?) but can only run a 3" tire...

    Pat,

    You didn't have to put Porky out to pasture did you?

    Ben Couturier had an endo up front with a DX-32. I think he shaved the outside knobs and maybe "adjusted" the fork with a little heat.
    I picked up a 1x1 last month and shoved an Endo up front on the slightly narrower Alex DM24 rim. The outside knobs brush just a little bit, but not terrible, I haven't trimmed them. I tried it on a SunRingle double wide and it didn't work with.
    the wider rim.
    I'd be curious to try a shaved Larry or Nate just for grins.

    I had no luck making it fit in back.

    Years ago I met some goofy guy in Alaska who had a torch and some beer on a dark winter day. He added 2" to the chainstays on a pink 1x1 to make an endo on fat rims fit in the back. . . He was a nice fella. I wonder what ever happened to him.

    Ben fit endo/marge in back after a bit of heat it and beat it treatment.

    Let us know how it works out.

    The husker du is a shorter tire. As well as a little narrower than the endo/larry I had on my pugs.

    Funny that the H-Du would have a lower profile. I hadn't really even considered it because it claimed 4.0 girth. I take any tire width spec with a grain of salt, but when a 3.7 barely fits I wasn't too inclined to consider dropping $ on a 4.0 experiment.


    The Endo works quite well on the "skinny" rim. Funny that a rim that is 5mm wider than the Salsa "Gordo" (spanish for fat) is considered skinny. It's all relative.

    Honestly I think the Endo is better on a skinny rim up front than when I've ridden it on LrgMrgs. It ends up with a more rounded profile, which I tried to capture on camera, and doesn't have the cornering troubles I've noticed on wider rims.
    Obviously its footprint isn't as massive, but it has certainly been adequate, and an inexpensive and fun experiment. Even on the "skinny" rim I can run it at <10psi if necessary.

    As you can see in the photo, not much clearance, but enough. Trimming the side knobs or getting the wheel PERFECTLY true would leave me with 0 rubbing.
