    That looks awesome, and I bet soooo fun to ride. Not practical, really.

    Those rotors look small on such a huge bike. They need 20" rotors just to make them look "right".

    Honest answer is that bigger wheels would probably result in toe clip with the front wheel. Not really good for mountain biking....

    Honestly I think the 36er is the "Do all End all" bike. Big wheels roll so well I'm suprise the pro roadies haven't picked up on this.

    i'm thinking that if i went through all the thought process/fabrication to make a 39" ss bicycle, i would have given it track dropouts.
