    Surly makes a 4.8" tire, and I believe Vee Rubber does as well. Surly's Clown Shoe rim would be ideal at 100mm wide; and then you've also got their Rolling Darryl at 82mm wide (what I'll be using).

      Thanks for all the kind comments I just can't wait to see these frames on wheels now! And all muddy

      (I start wondering if I will have the guts to ride it instead of just displaying it in my living room ).

      Can't wait !
      Please dont let it collect dust on your wall! It would be a shame not to put my frames to the test!

      I'm hoping to make myself a Ti frame eventually, I still need practice on Ti before selling anything though... And testing

      Monstrous. I, too, am interested in the feasibility of finding the guts to build up such a ride.

      Killian got it right, Surly has 2 tires at 4.8" wide. There's the Vee Rubber Snowshoe XL that are supposed to be a revised version of the original Snowshoe that weren't 4.7" as labeled. I've heard also of a 45nrth Dillinger at 5", but I think that's still just a rumor

          More on the Surly Lou tire experiment on a unicycle

          The rim choice is a difficult one: either you go 100mm and must use the Nimbus 127mm hubs (and reduce you choice) or you can stay very compatible with 100mm hub and must stay with rims below 90mm. But there is a very nice Nextie 90mm carbon rim for the richer uni builders

          => Flansberrium 26: Nextie rim, JumboJim 4.0, Spirit 127/150mm, M4O ISIS

            Any chance of going the opposite way an making a dedicated 700c frame with a narrow rounded crown?

              If someone orders one, yes I can make it, but I'm not planning on making one just for fun unlike fatties.
              I'd be really happy to make one though, it would end up pretty light I think!

                  Sooooooo... Have these shipped yet? Anyone got theirs if they have?

                  I found the holy grail tire for my build and am getting excited!

                      Who's putting together the 26x5? I totally want reviews of which components you use and how it rides. It's been a dream of mine for some time to build a super fatty. Oh, and for starters are you using a wide hub or standard?
                      Who's flying this thing?!

                        "Siddhartha Valmont" is putting together the 26x5"! He is using a normal 100mm hub. When using a 5" tire thought I would suggest a 125mm hub to make sure you wont hit your knees/legs on the tire when riding!

                            Very nice welds and cool curved design. Looks really stiff and durable.
                            Inspired by bri's proposal i have an idea for a nice logo. Maybe I manage to draw it this weekend.
                            Keep it up!

                              I made three little sketches. Wanted to do sth. with the three letters JFU an the maple leaf. Hope you like the idea. Thanks to Bri for the inspiration.

                                Mail service is a good invention when it is packages ;o)

                                Look who arrived in the mail !

                                These pics are not doing justice to the beautiful work you did Jacob (but I was missing a garden and a sunny day ).

                                It feels really strong and is very competitive weight-wise: only 750g for an insane clearance (140mm side to side).

                                Next to come: pics with the wheel in !!!
