    65mm rim with 26x3.8 tires on newer km frame

    Has anyone tried to use Marge lite rims with 3.8 tires on a newer 27 plus / 29er surly karate monkey frame... Just curious if this combination would work on in regards to the side by side clearance. It should work in regards to overall diameter... Thank you for your reply and advise ...

    I'll be building some 40mm b+ wheels for one soon. I'll ask them to bring the frame when they pick the wheels up. I have some Marge Lites with HuskerDus layin' around I can try to fit. My money's on no.

    Thank you for the reply. I already purchased the Marge lites. I was going to build up a pug then I sold the frameset. Then I was looking at a Wednesday, but the hubs cost are outrageous. The pug ii is not for me... Let me know I may try to sell the rims. Thanks again.

    I have a bunch of friends with Wednesdays and other 177mm bikes with these. Great hubs and inexpensive. Just build the Wednesday.
