29ers average to 28.54 inches.

27.5 or 650 averaged to 27.1inches

26 ers averaged to 25.93 inches.

 

All depending on your brand of tire.

 

 

 

Speaking or tires.....................

Where would you get 36 inch tires?

Ah, that works too!

 

I think ebikes will mostly work in bike friendly states.  I'm in Oregon currently but haven't seen any ebikes on the road though.

When I was in Japan, I did see ebikes for rent, but most people preferred to use their mamachari for groceries or carrying their kid(s).

Coker makes some 36" unicycle tires that can be modified. There was another brand that I forget the name, and just like the early 29ers there are a few hardy souls that have hand stitched tires together to make a 36er

I get what you mean Redcar, I'm still thinking a 36" will have something taller than my 32" inseam! Which means at 6' tall I have a long fuselage or as my buddy once said picture the guys in the hot dog race at the ballgame:eek: My concern on a 36" wheel bike would be the overall weight and especially the wheel weight as far a bunny hoping something 28lbs +:blink:

 

Yes Jpoc, Hesitation Marks is a double LP and very sweet and clean sounding. Speaking of electronic music on vinyl I was recently playing some killer Kraftwerk (Computerland I believe) and it sounded awesome, you would think digitized music would be more suited for digital media and not analog but I have found Electronica on vinyl to be excellent.

The 36" posted earlier claims to weigh 22.3kg on their site.. that's around 49 pounds.. I think it would be a rather different kind of riding to conventional mountain biking.

I think this is a great image of it, shows off how huge it really is next to a normal bike

I immediately think "Touring."

I understand Pleasant, I also understand Silent's immediate impression of it being along the lines of touring but with full touring armor you might be getting up into the 70-80lb range:eek: I know for a fact my initial thoughts are single speed cruiser with the lightest parts I can put on that baby. at 240Lbs myself I gotz no problem jumping up and down on 32 to 35lbs if I could get it down to that weight:bigsmile_face:

There is someone who built a 25ish lbs ti SS. These things were made for MTB, not the road. Those monster wheels would flatten out some very rough terrain and keep speed....climbing would be a chore and cornering would be freaky

I want one bad but I'm so short I'm not sure it's possible
post #2934 of 3475

:D We'd definitely want pix!

post #2935 of 3475
Here's a black sheep ti 36, this is the one I'd want Lol

post #2936 of 3475

:dt880smile: Wait... with pix of you mounted on the bad boy.

post #2937 of 3475

I'm so ready to customize one of those babies:tongue_smile: Be great if Ukai would build some chrome reinforced rims for it and DT had some killer stainless spokes. Maybe GT or Specialized could make some nice aluminum high flange hubs, talk the White Bro's into a trick carbon fork, possibly a carbon seat post and bars:rolleyes: All this dreaming is making me delirious:blink: LOL

Well obviously with a massive 32" inseam I'm not Wilt the Stilt by a long shot ferday:wink_face: With the right gearing on a single speed I would not have too much fear of hills or the road providing I could keep the overall weight 32Lbs or below. Heck back in my late 20's early 30's I used to toss my 26" Mongoose around like a 20" BMX lightweight:tongue_smile: Heck I can still get a nice 36" vertical Bunny Hop on my PL-24 and I'll be 57 Monday:D I can hear all the Southside Johnny's now as I pulled up on my custom 36:rolleyes:
