Thanks guys. I appreciate you taking the time when there are so many other things that you could be doing to change the world and improve the condition of mankind. Thank you.

"When did Stephen Wright start riding a big wheel?"

Scott,

Stephen Wright started playing football (soccer, to you and me) for Liverpool in 1996. He continued on in a somewhat distinguished career, signing twice with Sunderland as well as stints with Coventry, Stoke City and Brentford. Always popular with the fans, he finished as high as 4th in spectator polls and was recently appointed Coventry's club captain.

With a manly resume like that, I think that it is safe to assume that Mr. Wright has been riding a BigWheel since birth. Or, at least, shortly soon after birth.

Or is that the wrong Wright?

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Scott,

I was pretty sure that that wasn't the right Wright. I just wanted to type "wrong Wright?" That really provided a lot of entertainment for me.

In fact I might just do it again. "Wrong Wright?" Ha, ha. Thanks for the set up.

ClearwaterBMW,

You may have stumbled across the most epic BigWheel journey ever: Oregon to the Panhandle. Guinness's would have to be notified so the attempt could be certified. Or maybe the F.I.M. is the governing body. Or possibly Boone and Crockett.

Regardless, just listen to the voice in the back of your head and do it. You have our full endorsement.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

stoked

this thread has got me really excited about snow riding, ive got a set of tires on my CR with cold kutter ice screws in them, but looking at your fat tire bikes go has really got me schemeing. im thinking about running TW 200 tires on my bike, id have to get a new set of hubs and lace up a 14" rear and 18" front, have you seen anyone do this before? i would love to do a true fat tire conversion (atv tires) and making the wider triple clamps wouldnt be too bad, but a custom swingarm with a jackshaft so the chain can clear the tire is sounding like a lot of work. if you have any ifo or insight on this kinda thing lemme know!!

Scott,

I'm glad to see you out and about, but should you really be running that garden tractor through that much water?

bk brkr baker,

The BigWheel is a very manly bike. Everything about it is studly, including the tires. Both ends of the bike are studded, as are it's riders.


leelikesbikes,

It's definitely possible but I haven't heard of anybody putting TW wheels on a bike. Everybody seems to put ATV tires onto their conversions. Check this one out:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuk...#ht_500wt_1182

The TW200 has and extended countershaft to place the drive chain outside of the width of the rear tire. That would be the limiting factor on a CR.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Beautiful weather. Warm temps. Miles and miles of endless trails to be ridden.

However, we haven't been getting much videoing done.

This is why:

Interested in anybody's suggestions for replacement.

Mr. BigWheel
