    Wider 29" rims?

    (-there is another general 29-er thread but it has descended into irrelevancy-)

    I am wondering if anyone makes them.
    Most I have found specs on are only around 1"/25mm width.
    Basically, wider == better.
    Ideally I'd want something towards 35mm, "downhill"-widths, but am not holding my breath.
    ?
