      Hey Eric, maybe we'll get a proper 36 tire soon, eh?

      So hows the fat tire coming along?

          Ben: do you mean the 24x4 or the 36x4? I have the fat 36er rim done but I think I am going to do the 24x4 first, probably some time this summer.

          Matt: good to hear. we are all patently waiting. By the sounds of things the project is rolling along nicely. We would all love for the process to be faster but I agree with the take your time and get it right the first time approach you guys are taking.

          Keep us updated with any developments!

            Awesome work! I'll make sure to keep that thread somewhere! You inspired me for some cool tires too. I already repaired my old 2.6 Gazz which had a broken sidewall! I sewed another tire sidewall on it and I used some ShoeGoo to make sure it wont blow out when I'm sleeping again!

            Thanks alot for posting this!

              For now I will use the reTyre soulution (http://www.unicyclist.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=120702), but I find this very interesting.

              A couple of questions:

              For a 36" tyre, would it be better to use two 29" tyres instead of two 26" tyres? I mean, is it worth the extra money to use two tyres with a diameter closer to 36"?

              Is it possible to peel the tread rubber off any tyre? I have the Schwalbe Ice Spiker in mind - probably the RaceGuard version because it's non foldable.

                Eric great job!

                When riding, is there a bump at the sewing locations?
