    Thanks Guys!

    The rim is a 26" Surly Large Marge 65mm inside width

    About 3" wide over all.

    It does clear the chain-stays just clears :shock: the pic makes it look tighter then it is.

    LDT= LET'S DO THIS! :lol: :lol:

    That's going to look awesome! The Fat Tire Wars begin! :lol:
    Don't think I've seen a Mohawk(?) frame before. I love twin top tubes 8)
    Now, the question is, are you going to fully fender.....

    I sure hope not, I love his fenders, but a big fat tire needs to be seen, maybe a bobbed fender! :eek:

    Re: LDT SPECIAL

    that wheel stuffed in that frame looks positively sick,skip! 8) looks like you have enough meat on the rear dropouts,if you need to move the tire farther back too. good luck to ya.

    Another dose of frame envy. I may need therapy after this competition is over.
    Cant wait to see what becomes of it.
