Surly makes a 4.8" tire, and I believe Vee Rubber does as well. Surly's Clown Shoe rim would be ideal at 100mm wide; and then you've also got their Rolling Darryl at 82mm wide (what I'll be using).

Thanks for all the kind comments I just can't wait to see these frames on wheels now! And all muddy

Can't wait !
Please dont let it collect dust on your wall! It would be a shame not to put my frames to the test!

Monstrous. I, too, am interested in the feasibility of finding the guts to build up such a ride.

Killian got it right, Surly has 2 tires at 4.8" wide. There's the Vee Rubber Snowshoe XL that are supposed to be a revised version of the original Snowshoe that weren't 4.7" as labeled. I've heard also of a 45nrth Dillinger at 5", but I think that's still just a rumor

More on the Surly Lou tire experiment on a unicycle

The rim choice is a difficult one: either you go 100mm and must use the Nimbus 127mm hubs (and reduce you choice) or you can stay very compatible with 100mm hub and must stay with rims below 90mm. But there is a very nice Nextie 90mm carbon rim for the richer uni builders

If someone orders one, yes I can make it, but I'm not planning on making one just for fun unlike fatties.
I'd be really happy to make one though, it would end up pretty light I think!

Who's putting together the 26x5? I totally want reviews of which components you use and how it rides. It's been a dream of mine for some time to build a super fatty. Oh, and for starters are you using a wide hub or standard?

"Siddhartha Valmont" is putting together the 26x5"! He is using a normal 100mm hub. When using a 5" tire thought I would suggest a 125mm hub to make sure you wont hit your knees/legs on the tire when riding!

Very nice welds and cool curved design. Looks really stiff and durable.
Inspired by bri's proposal i have an idea for a nice logo. Maybe I manage to draw it this weekend.
Keep it up!

Thumbs up Mail service is a good invention when it is packages ;o)

Look who arrived in the mail !

These pics are not doing justice to the beautiful work you did Jacob (but I was missing a garden and a sunny day ).

It feels really strong and is very competitive weight-wise: only 750g for an insane clearance (140mm side to side).

Next to come: pics with the wheel in !!!
