I saw this thread in the Alaska forum.... OK, my Turner snowbike is pretty much done...
The guy made a snowbike out of a Turner six-pack rear triangle and a 5-spot front triangle. It has those sweet Surly Large Marge rims and Endomorph tires. My questions are two:
1. Given that winter is coming, what are the biggest tires that one could put on the front and rear of a stock 575 (with Fox Float in the front)? I have seen this asked before and the thinking was something around 2.5 or 2.6 in the back, depending on the tire.
2. Does anyone have any thoughts on the theoretical challenges involved in building a custom rear triangle for a 575 that would accomodate the Surly Large Marge rims and giant Endomorph tires?
Thanks for everyone's thoughts.
