That just looks ridiculous.

it’s like a fish-eye lens photo! the subcultures in cycling are very entertaining. sophisticated and loves monster trucks kinda profile.

Sooooooo intriguing.

I want it

How bout a 36″ front wheel with a 29″ rear….a true 69er!!

MB - 01/04/13 - 5:59pm

@JJ, I’ve seen it done on a DH rig no less. Something like a 64deg HT though… Search MTBR for 36er and you should find it.

I could build a whole 26in bike that weighs less than the wheels and tires

MB - 01/05/13 - 1:12am

@JimmyZ – Not that I would feel comfortable riding (about 17-18lbs). Kinda missing the point – light doesn’t necessarily = fun, and heavy doesn’t necessarily = not fun.

Please stick to real cycling info. This kinda crap is just a novelty for the people that can’t stand to not have something different than everyone else.

Man… all those bashing comments. What the point of posting if its only to tell a blank statement…

Oh the internet…

Matt, The “Pic Of The Day” series is just photographs of people’s bikes. Sometimes we post photos of OLD bikes or art made from bikes. It’s not intended to show something new all the time. Novelty is fun sometimes, too.

36er’s are the future…..nice pic Matt! These bikes are fun to ride they roll everything cars, buildings and the
ocasional 26er holdout!!
