    Half fat project



    I know not alot to see but its taken a while to get this far... now with a big push i think will have this finished by the end of the week..

    Got to rebuild rear and front wheels to solid axles... will be 135mm front and back.. fat fork at front.. just got to experiment to get the biggest tire i can in rear.

    Looks great, is it a 29er frame with 26" wheels?
    Where did the rims come from, had a quick search and can't find a UK supplier.
    Was wondering if I could do something similar with my 29er.

    Its a standard Genesis IO frame with a Sandman fork... the fork will take a 29er wheels.

    the rims are Snowcat's and are on loan... pretty sure they are no longer available but would definately buy my own set if i could find some... a wide trials rim or a large marge from Surly would do the job.

    If you are in the Uk and anywhere near Newcastle feel free to get in touch and try the wheels in your frame.
