  • Muni riders - height/weight -vs- wheel size

    Hey guys, since everyone seems to want to share their height and weight i thought we might as well put it to some use.

    Knowing a bunch of heights and weights is pretty useless in itself but might be interesting if we combine that information with preferred wheel size/tire width for MUni.

    If I get enough data I will punch it into excel and see if any trends emerge. (do taller people like taller wheels? heavier people wider tires? no relation?)

    you can give your height/weight in metric or imperial measurements, it doesn't mater, but please just give one wheel size.

    I will start

    5'10" 185lbs 26x2.5

      I think that most of the responses you are going to get are going to be pretty much the same, no matter what height/weight...

      However, there might be some more experienced riders out there with a more personal preference...

        6', 160lbs, 26x2.5-2.6

        Having only been riding 2 years I'm not one of the more experienced riders but I have reached this preference after spending a fair amount of time with other options (24x3.0, 26x3.8, 29x2.2-2.5, 36x2.25).

          Yah I know I am going to get a lot of 24x3 across the board but it would be interesting to see where the other wheel/tire sizes fit in. Maybe only half of the over 6" crowd uses 24x3?

          we need a lot more responses to see if there are any trends.

            I think adding crank size would be helpfull.

            5' 10", 155 lbs. 24X2.7, 170 cranks.

            I've tried bigger wheels but I can't handle the effective taller gearing in much of my terrain, and I don't do drops so I can't make use of a more volumous tire.

            I'd go down a bit on the cranks to 165's if they'd fit on my DX hub.

                  There is nothing worse than a gross exaggeration.

                      Cool guys. Should have thought of crank size.

                      Just punched in what we have and an interesting trend has popped up, not one that I was expecting.

                      I think I am going to wait until we have at least 20 responses before posting any results.

                      I am amending my entry to include crank length.
