Judging by your notes on the Remo's benefits over a large marge in another post, you'd take a wider rim (and therefore footprint) if it would fit? I kept thinking this winter that a somewhat flatter edge transition from a wider rim would be better in the worst conditions I played in.mikesee said:Won't fit a Pugsley. Clears my fork and trailer, but not between the chainstays. Doh.
The 4" rim weighs ~1600g.
I wonder how much can be swiss cheesed/machined out of one of the 4" rims? I've seen the singlewall and heavily machined large marge pictures and it sounds like a significant weight reduction. Perhaps I should just shut up and research more myself...
