I think the strongest wheelbuild would lace the spokes to the *opposite* side of the rim. You can get rims drilled for this, but they aren't common - I don't know why.

    So true,
    Just like the BMW R1200GS motorcycle

        In the fat bike world people have cross spoked wheels. From what I gather, regularly laced wheels are more then strong enough, and cross spiking is a royal pain in the ass to do. All your truing adjustments will now be reversed and lacing that would suck imo.

        I'll keep my offset normally laced wheels.

        • fat bike riders don´t drop high.
          for munis you should have a trail wheel setup.
          most stress is caused by high drops and if you have a nice landing side forces are not really big

          • Here's the latest iteration of my 26" "Oracle" (now with only a few remaining Oracle parts). Parts are:

            * Mad 4 One medium muni frame. I swapped out the Oracle frame because I wanted:
            - a proper disc frame (the d-brake was giving me problems)
            - a little more tire clearance
            - 27.2 seatpost size
            * semi-flattened KH fusion freeride, tilted way back courtesy the...
            * KH adjustable post (one piece base, only available in 27.2, thus my requirement), with the original Oracle clamp
            * KH moments, 150
            * Impact Addict pedals
            * cheapo Tektro brake
            * original Oracle wheel with 3-piece pinned Nimbus disc hub, and Dominator 2 rim
            * WTB Ranger tire, 26x2.8", the "fast rolling" "tough" version.

            The color scheme was perfect for the Christmas season....

              Where do you get one of those handles? Looks just like what I want.

              Thanks Stewart

              • handle

                Hey, I saw Jogi's handle and I too wanted one. I made this one from some scrap I had. It works to stiffen the seat base by grabbing the 4 bolts in front and the 2 forward of the post. and it's light. I removed the front bumper and the old brake handle mount to put this on and saved 10 grams. I will make a couple more if this proves to hold up.
