    I would go 32 (and I am). I like that the wider rim will hold the casing out more 'naturally' to the size of a wider tire. Weight penalty, though, will be about 5 oz. per rim

    However, if you're only going to run 2.35s, you could certainly get away with it handily. The 28 should still be plenty strong. Your intended 'most-of-the-time' use/tire?

    Will be running Schwalbe Big Bettys 2.4 for local stuff, and a 2.5 for all the resorts.

    I'm leaning towards the 32, yes there is a weight penalty, but if my plans work out, I'll be living/working in Whistler for the summer, and I think the weight penalty will be negligible

    Don't want to drop any names just yet. Should have it built mid-late April.

    In a way yes, since it will be made of aluminum, just like an aluminum can

    For whistler you're gonna want the 32s.

    I think I asked you in another thread but I can't find it now - - when you get a chance, PM me your impressions of WWU and what you thought of your weekend there.
