    How do you inflate it? Looks like the valve is inside the inner rim? Just optical illusion?

    Could it survive a two foot drop?

    The valve stem is in a normal orientation. It's just a long valve stem so it looks like it is touching the 20" rim. From a two foot drop the wheel would probably develop a good hop and break a spoke or two, so it would do about as well as most street-oriented wheels. I've already bunnyhopped this bike a fair bit and the wheel is running pretty true.

    Also, the front rack is made from cutting, bending and drilling new holes in a rear rack:

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    I guess
    you build it just to see of you could?
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    There is the strap together similar rims side by side to use 3 or 5 of them, too.

    the low tide mud flats of Humboldt Bay need more flotation to cross.
