actually the Surly's rims are not that strong for a massive as they are, they are intented for snow riding when tyre "Flotation" is paramount and not rock gardens, so they are not that burly, also they will not fit many frames and forks, they also have another problem, do to all the pretty holes, you need to use half a roll of Velox tape making them even heavier..shiggy said:
Wow Cool...shiggy said:The "DH" version of the Large Marge does not have the cutouts. They will also fit in many standard frames (they work in a Surly 1x1) and forks with 2.5-3.0 tires. If the tires will fit, the rims will fit. If you mount the 26x3.7 Endomorph tires then you do need a Pugsley frame. I am well aware of the Pugsley and what it is. It also uses a different version of the LM rim with outset spoke holes to reduce the dish.
I will bet you the LM rims are plenty strong. You will have a hard time knocking a 1200g, 65mm wide rim out of true. Mass can equal strength! May not be as durable as some other DH rims as far as denting.

So if you have a mech with the rear, you swap em!!patineto said:
Notice the 135mm single speed Rear hub use for the front wheel
I have a double track, and a mag30, both weldedHuck Banzai said:Mag 30/DT - Awesome super rims, but really hard to mount/unmount tires and not light either at 850+ ; the dif between the 2 is one is pinned & welded, and the other is pinned only -- NO IT DOESNT MAKE A DIF, AND EVEN IF THE SEAM SEPARATES A LITTLE, IT STILL DOESNT MATTER! WELDING IS A LEFTOVER HABIT FROM WHEN WE USED RIM BRAKES AND DOERS **NOT** MAKE THE WHEEL STRONGER. That and vain people like it.
