    Snow rims

    Little nicer construction than the Snowcats. I also have black and silver ones.

    Awesome a nice alternative to Snowcats and DX32's. Those look sweet Pete, do you have a weight on them?

    They're double wall and seem really stout, so a little porky at 850g. You could probably cut the inner wall out for some weight savings.

    But they're pretty

    Pete,

    Honest question. Why would you go narrower than Large Marges other than maybe weight? All I heard last year was, I wish I could get 80 or 100mm rims from the majority of people.

    My only personal experience is Endo's on LM's.

    If you don't have a bike to accommodate bigger. That's the only reason I'd run the Echos or snowcats.

    I think the 80mm is just about perfect, just not available at the moment.

    wishy washy

    I ran Endos on Snocats last year...on a Pugs. Weight concerns. It worked just fine until you lowered the pressure below 15lbs for soft conditions. Then you had very little stability. The tail and nose became squishy and wagged around. I also had a feeling the tire was going to come off the rim. Going with LMs this year.

    Any 29er option on those? Wishful thinking, probably, since I doubt any trials riders are using big hoops.

    Edit: Nevermind, I just noticed it was asked earlier.
