Dave,
Who can you guys talk into building a wide(38mm+)700cm rim for 29er winter bikes? I know you folks ride on snowmachine trails down there. So, you can't say you never have wanted such a thing! Have you ever looked into it?

Yes Surley does make a big rim. Too big really(26" only). It is a pig on pavement,I can only guess what it's like on snow! There is a set at the shop I work at. Laced up with DH tires and tubes(thats all that will fit) the pair weighs in at 13.5 lbs. Try that on for size! Also,not many bikes have that type of clearance in the rear triangle between the chainstays at the BB cluster. I was thinking more of a 32-44 mm wide rim in a 29er. Eyelets,double wall. The works. It would be perfect for winter riding and heavy use by heavy riders. The 29er Snocat snow rim, the current standard,has the width but not the duribility or quality. I want a well built wide snow rim for my new Gunnar 29er. Thats my dream :P
