    Do you remember 300 – 360 rear tyres? Who want to buy them now? It will be the same with this big front wheel next year.

    If we didn’t push the envelope we would still be puritans living in europe. I love it.

    I am constantly amazed at what people think is a “great idea”. Can you get spinners on them too?
    Stupid. I’d be embarassed to be “that guy” with those on my bike.

    Stupid

    If they’re stupid then I guess I like Stupid in this sense. Anyway, B’COOL Products is already in the process of building the fenders for that wheel and will be available shortly. They will officially debut at the V-Twin Expo with Ballistic Cycles.

    How long will it be before we have a 18 on the back and 60 0n the front and we sit up and have pedals on the front wheel? WAIT haven’t we alreadt done that back in the late 1800’s?

    To each his own and if this makes money for someone then so it be.

    We all have our opinions and we all have fell for what we think is cool in are lifetime to later find that it was kind of square.

    There are practical and purposeful ideas in the motorcycle world and there are ideas that are unrealistic and impractical. It depends on what one visions as a practical and useful motorcycle depending on how a person rides.

    As stated earlier the optimum wheel size for a motorcycle on asphalt is 17 inches proven time and again by engineers. Small variations do occur depending on various factors.

    Some have had a tendency to humor us with jabs at Older Riders and RUBS and are they real bikers or Posers then I see the latest creation and get a better view.

  14. 14 Really... Dec 2nd, 2010 at 10:26 am

    So, B’Cool and Metalsport…what’s the ROI including the cost of R&D when you only sell 5 of these and give te other 5 away for show bikes? I’m not trying to be a negative person. I’m sure you’re proud of them, and they do “look cool”, but aren’t practical for the average guy today.
    To each his own, but you missed your chance 3 years ago when there were still a ton of people pissing away money building outrageous bikes. Nobody wants their bike to look like a donk.

  15. 15 jatinder pal Dec 4th, 2010 at 1:18 pm

    Too much……the front wheel should not more than 21″,in my view.
    These babies look good but i am not convinced that they would ride well.

    The guys at Ballistic were the first to run one on a bagger. It debuted in the Wizards Products booth at the V-Twin Show. They’ve got something up their sleeves again for this year’s V-Twin Show too. See it at the Wizards Products booth.

    Well I Started this gangsta S#!t, and this is the mother f’n thanks I get? lol, just playin’, I am glad Metalsport is able to turn a profit on a wheel size I came up with and spent much time developing a tire for, and yes please come see my newest creation @ Cincy on Ballistics new bike in the Wizards booth, I am sure there will be much to talk about then… If you step up to spending the bug money on one of these, I think a more personalized wheel would be appropriate, as opposed to a “production wheel” Isn’t that whats it’s all about anyways?!

  18. 18 Doug McGoon Dec 6th, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    *big money

  19. 19 drew Dec 6th, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I hear you Fuji,when did Hip Hop hit wheel industry.
    Can I see some spinners please.

  20. 20 B'COOL Products Dec 9th, 2010 at 11:28 am

    “REALLY” ..If there wasn’t a return on investment I wouldn’t do it. I ,as well as many, doubted the 26 but that and the 23″ (another doubted product way back whenever) have kept my shop doors open for the last three years. I’m not sure why you say I missed my chance 3 years ago. I have been growing my business building fenders for the past 10 years and plan on being around with cutting edge, quality products for many more to come. I think those that choose no to carry my products are the one’s that missed out!

    Bottom line; If the tire companies are going to build new tire sizes for those thinking outside the box, then B’COOL Products will be building fenders to fit. You will see the new 30″ fender on the Ballistic Cycles bike in the Wizard’s booth at the V-Twin Expo and a few more in the Ballistic Cycles booth as well.

    Whatever style riding you like or whatever size wheel your bike would come with, it’s knowing the inches your wheel can cover in one revolution of the pedal stroke that’s important.

  22. 22 wheel balancing machine May 24th, 2011 at 2:22 am

    Make sure that the tires are straight. This will help ensure that your alignment is proper after you have installed your new steering wheel.

  23. 23 MisterT Jul 5th, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    Don’t like it. Don’t buy one. It’s not for your geezer glide anyway.

  24. 24 Xtian999 Oct 3rd, 2011 at 5:26 am

    I like them and I think they have potential in other types of riding. My mountain bike is a 29er and is great for bumpy trails. Maybe a desert oriented bike or a board track racer style cruiser with these rims would be cool.

  25. 25 TDAWG Oct 22nd, 2011 at 7:00 am

    I’m putting one on a Street Glide, basically for shows and such, it’s a killer look, However I won’t be making a cross country run with it. That’s what the other bike is for. I thought everyone had one for show, and one for go. Hell, Maybe it’s just me
