    Has HED released their aluminum rims in 24" yet? I'd guess they'd be priced similar to their 26" ones ~$225.

    Don't know if HED has, but that's what Peacock Groove is using for the semi-cutom Cake fatties. The Rat ride 1x1 had them too, anybody know what brand those were, if not a Surly custom order?
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Surly Large Marge used to come in 24" for their 1x1 (rat ride). They've been out of production for a while.

    Framed, On-One and Specialized all make production 24" fat bikes. Maybe you can source one rim direct from them?

    If you're OK with 47mm rims then you can expand your search to trials rims. There are a few examples out there. NW Trials is one.

    Weinmann makes NON-tubeless fat rims you could use. Weinmann Metal Products Co., LTD

    But the only tubeless solutions are HED and Nextie, the latter of which I have been riding daily since October and am fond of.

    I have a couple spare anodized blue Framed Mini-Sota 24x80 wheels...

    I'd mail you one rim for $20 plus shipping if you like. Or a wheel for $50. PM me if interested.

    3G has one to go with their Hoggy Gs, but seems to just come as a complete wheel: 3G Bikes | Wheels | Puck Deluxe Wheel Set

    A 50mm from Alex is supposed to be out soon if not already: Alexrims - cycling wheels

    And I have this site bookmarked, but I don't know anything about the rims: 24" rim size - Robs'son

    Cool. Let us know how they are! Particularly interested in ease of setting up tubeless, and durability of the rims.

    I'm interested in following this thread too as I'd love to experiment with a 24x4.0 rear and 26x4.0 front on my old Balfa Minuteman - I can clear a Surly Dirt Wizard on a 47mm wide Trials rim so I have currently a 26x2.7 rear and 26x4.0 front set up on the bike with a Fat B Nimble - which is really more like 26x3.6 but it's still cool!

    I was thinking it would be cool to have the same approximate tire width front and back (width not height) and it could make for a pretty fun snappy little "Almost Fat bike"

    Thinking something similar, and that's the reason I have some 24" rim links saved up. My Troll has clearance for 3" in the front and almost that in the rear. I'm thinking that by going 24", I might move the widest part of the tire to a wider part of the dropouts and allow me to get a little closer to a wannabe fat bike. It'll be a while, though. Still working on getting my first 26" wheelset up and running.

    FYI, 24x4" Ground Controls are about 26-3/4" tall. Plan accordingly.

    Yeah, I was surprised they were so big. I ordered a Fatboy 24 for my daughter and it was way too big!
