2.75" rimlock availablity?

Need a rimlock to fit a 2.75" rim, have you any idea what bike uses one of that size as standard?
I don't seem to be able to buy a rimlock of that size from the general parts supplier, so I am hoping that I can find one that is fitted oem to a machine.
Any help will be gratefully received... Thanks.

Timpo.

Go to a bike shop that is selling off road bikes, bend down and look on the rims. They will have the size stamped in them somewhere. http://offroad.parts-unlimited.com/16/255/8180513 From what I see you might be in trouble... seems 2.50 is about the biggest.

You could drill the bead and thread in some pins or screws to lock them.

I have a couple 2.75 rim locks. Emgo makes them.

but I will warn you, those things are completely junk!!! And DO NOT work.

Go with the motion pro 2.5 lock. That is if you have a standard 17in wheel.

I would think it would be simple to widen one of the all aluminum Talon rimlocks. I'd probably drill and tap some holes in the clamping surface and use screws that had a suitable head (not too sharp) to widen the clamp the required amount.
I assume your application is a tube type tire on a rim with a safety bead, if so you could probably use a tubeless tire without a rimlock. If not, what type of rim are you useing?
