    Fat rim options

    Hey there,

    I'm looking at getting a Maverick SC32 fork for my pugsley and I'm curious as to what other rim options are out there. I currently have offset large marges and they're fine, I just thought that if I'm building a new wheel why not see what else there is for rims (maybe something a bit wider 70-80mm?).

    I plan to use my bike in the summer with the Maverick fork for some trail riding (plan to put Gaz 3.0s on for summer - sidenote: I only have one right now so if anyone has an extra shoot me a line...).

    So the question is: Are some of the other rim offerings (vicious graceful fat sheba, speedway 70mm or 80mm, ...?) burly enough for trail riding? Or are they meant more for snow touring/racing type of deal? Should I just go with a DH Large Marge to be safe?

    Cheers,

    Coach
    eh?

    As far as I know 70mm is as wide as you can go on the Mav.
    Good luck.

    Running an 80 mm from Choppers US on my SC32, no issues. The 100 doesn't work. It does fit, but so barely, that it's not worth bothering with.

    Sweet, that's what I might try. Only snag is the chopper rims come in a 36 hole drill pattern and the Maverick hub is 32 hole. Are you using a King or Hope hub? I've heard there are issues with using a non-Maverick hub on a Maverick fork.

    Cheers,

    King. No issues, but I also don't ride this bike like I ride others. KNock on wood, fine so far.....

    Seems odd no? A Maverick sepcific hub, causing problems with the fork it's built for....
