I was watching the Jib video for the 1-millionth time just now and I think my favorite part of that video is watching Danny Swan do all those stair gaps.
The thing I love to watch is his wheels. That Supa-Phat Orange 223 or Patriot or whatever it is with 24" Sun Singletrak rims. That thing just looks plain MEAN!
Do any of you guys use 24" rims on your long travel freeride bikes? I'm not talking 24" hardtails that you use for BMX/dirt jump, but long travel dooboingers. (not that a hardtail is not a freeride bike, I totally respect the freeride hardtail) I'm just more interested in Danny Swan's setup...how it handles...is it necessary/benificial for freeride?
