I'm super lazy AND short on time, I decided, last min. to try "short track" mtb racing.
My full sus. wally goose is about 35lbs and my "fat bike", is well too fat... sooo... I ordered 2, of the cheapest 29er rear wheels J&B had, & and re-dished them 17.5mm offcenter to fit the pug. :D

Here is a pic right after the last race ( Wed, yesterday. )

:thumbsup:

What size tire did you go with. "Regular" 29ers or 29er+

I would really like to get one of their Ice Cream Trucks… using it Fat.. and with 29er+ wheel set up. :twisted:

Just some 2.1's ... wanted to cut down on friction/drag... & maybe faster.
I did 2 races on it, now its time to put it way :( until Dec. when the supposed "bad" :worship: winter will get here. ( ... and the fat tires / wheels will go back on. )

In the mean time, bring on CX season. :D

:thumbsup:

I am not so sure about those big bars either. Most everyone says that wide bars are better, on 29ers [fat bikes etc] and I keep trying and I am not so sure I like them. :thinking:
