Default Re: Fat tires

Rebuild the rear end or at least spread the original stays. There are extra fat tires I have seen with extra fat rims that would take a custom rear end. The primo set up I think. Surley is offering a fat rim called Large Marge for the Pugsley frame and fork.
The Endomorph tire is 94mm wide (3.7") x 740mm tall (29") on our rims. It’s the highest-volume production bicycle tire on the market at this point. And, at 1260 grams, our 60 tpi tire weighs 300–400 grams less than lower-volume 3"-wide DH tires. Most 3" DH tires hover around 1600 grams.
