    Gnarwhal height and wheel width

    Anybody know the height of the 27.5 × 3.8 and the 26×3.8 Gnarwhal ? What would be a good rim width for a 27.5×3.8 Gnarwhal?

    Rim width depends on rider, terrain, and season. How’re you going to use them?

    fall winter riding for a 250lb rider in Tucson may use a different rim than a 160 lb rider in VT.
    Maybe a few details?

    i have the 27.5x3.8 Gnarwhals. I run them on 50mm rims in summer and 80 in wet/slick/winter conditions. the wider flattens out the tread putting more of it on the ground for traction.
