Yes! Skinny 36" tires, please, or 42" for that matter. I'm sure David36er and the other makers of 36" bikes would agree. Thanks to them, the market for these wheels will continue to grow, and hopefully lead to more choices in rims and tires.

Well I'm not at all into skinny tires so honestly the Light TA that is on the DirtySixer Road version is the skinniest I'd wish for my riders. More volume is better for our application. It's not just a question of taste but a question of comfort for riders that are sometime heavy and very often not very flexible (injuries goes from busted ankles, knees, hips and back issues). So if I ever get the chance to make new tires it will be at least this width or more and round like a BigOne from Schwabble. This will also means more contact patch and better traction... 42". Nope. Thanks

Thanks! Yes the Road version is a different geometry, and of course drop bars: I am trying to get custom ones made, but again tooling cost and new molds are expensive. And same answer: I do not wish for anything narrower than the TA Light on it now.
