    Enough is enough. This big wheel crap is getting ridiculous.

  2. 2 takehikes Nov 20th, 2013 at 9:40 am

    I have been calling this whole giant wheel thing “COnestoga Wagon” wheels. Well come to find out I was right. Conestoga’s front wheels were about 35″ so they just made it when you add the tire to this wheel…..frigging great we have reverted 150 years. Way to go you douches.

  3. 3 BobS Nov 20th, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Hey I think that 32″ is hot. They’re going to look awesome on my ’96 Impala!

  4. 4 George Bradwell Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:27 am

    What’s next to show creativity? The matching 5″ custom training wheels for old boomers learning how to ride a tourer with a 32″ front wheel.

  5. 5 Woody's Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:39 am

    If you’re not into the chromed look, Studebaker was making wooden ones in the ’60s (the 1860s☺)

  6. 6 The Supreme Team Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:45 am

    Ahhh…the old “my opinion matters” crew. Must be some reason these guys are blowing up so quickly. How about giving people credit for breaking ground and moving this industry forward? Change is good kids. If you aren’t willing to innovate and be creative, you’ll be reserved to sitting behind a keyboard griping about everything. These guys have also developed a short neck system to compensate for the rise of the increased rim size. Look in some other forums and you’ll see a lot of people touting the product. It’s a damn good thing Ness didn’t listen to the naysayers or we’d be in Model T hell..You can have any color as long as it’s black.

  7. 7 MPKS Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:50 am

    I think that the web should not be used as a source of creativity. This wheel was designed 6 years ago by another custom bike builder. Be original!

  8. 8 Horst Rösler Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:52 am

    With the steering head at approx. 30 – 34 Inch horizontal leaf springs for front suspention will make sense from about 50-60+ Inch wheel diameter onwards :) Anything above 100” will need inverted front forks that have “pull” operating suspention while pointing upwards :) But there certainly will be some technical solutions for that too. Where will it end, we don’t know, but you can have an idea about it at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Penny-farthing or big wheel bicycles. It has all been there before…:) Aftermarket – there are innumerable opportunities! :)

  9. 9 Rodent Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:56 am

    Screw the wheels, go to their website, the girls are great!

  10. 10 Bruce Reynard Nov 20th, 2013 at 11:07 am

    To The Supreme Team. You bet that Ness will never do a 32 inch wheel? Not dumb. No, not anything new makes the industry move forward. As a matter of things, just very few innovations help the industry. 99% of “innovations” are trash. You don’t need to be creative to cut a wheel a size above the ones of the competition.

  11. 11 Doug McGoon Nov 20th, 2013 at 11:29 am

    If you don’t want a 30″ or 32″ wheel don’t get one… Didn’t you read that sizes 16″ plus are available?? people are so quick to hate on this website/blog, I guess I’m just not used to this in Facebook land haha, good job to the misfit team, you guys are a pleasure to work with!

  12. 12 bobx Nov 20th, 2013 at 12:30 pm

    got nothing good to say…dont say anything.

    im guessing the majority of people must ride their bikes completely stock because the factories all got it exactly right…

    some guys are gonna put a 32″ front wheel on their bagger and other guys are gonna bungee cord a stuffed animal on the tour pack of their bagger.

    to each of them its perfect customization.

    to the other…
    it doesnt matter.

    but if theres nothing good to say then…

    shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  13. 13 Terence Tory Nov 20th, 2013 at 12:37 pm

    The Supreme Team: “breaking ground and moving this industry forward”, Is this a wheel joke? I haven’t taken any notice of Arlen Ness designs since he made fibreglass digger rear fenders.This big wheel fashion fix is a pointless exercise in excess,expense,and bad engineering and design.Get off that thing,you’re too big and give the big wheel back to the boy before Mrs Kravits calls the proper authorities!

  14. 14 P. Hamilton. Nov 20th, 2013 at 12:58 pm

    Doug Mc Goon. I am indifferent. People can do, like, hate what they want. But I just did an internet search for tall wheels for baggers, all websites and Facebook pages. Contrary to what you state, about 75% of bikers seem to comment negatively and think that a wheel above 23″ is absolutely ridiculous. I have seen the baggers bike show in Sturgis. I have absolutely no interest in these tall wheel baggers, respect those who do it, but don’t act like most people love it. It will go the same way as the long, over-raked choppers (Big Bear, Big Dog etc. Unsellable in a couple of years. The only reason I see a vendor doing a 32″ wheel is marketing his name. I hope he knows that he will not sell more than 5 to 10 wheels in 1 year. Can’t make a living on this.

  15. 15 Doug Nov 20th, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    “I don’t like these wheels b/c they adversely alter the agility, braking, & acceleration of the motorcycle’s original engineering. In addition, they make my motor look small.”

    There, was that not friendly enough feedback for people moaning about people moaning?

    Innovation would get nowhere if the people making things don’t have the fortitude to take criticism.

  16. 16 Terence Tory Nov 20th, 2013 at 1:10 pm

    Innovation that gets nowhere, is merely a waste of time and effort.Innovation needs a clear focus and objective.By those standards this is just a ride down a road to nowhere.

  17. 17 Yank Nov 20th, 2013 at 1:36 pm

    I love the girls on the website now they are definitely worth going to the website for. I like the way a 26 inch looks on a road king and road glide because there is no deformation of the fairing and angle. I just looked at the price of wheels and tires and wouldn’t couldn’t pay that much for just rims and tires. the expense is outrageous. I think its cool and love the raked look on a bagger, just wish i could afford it. Now when you talk a bout anything above 26 then the bike looks ridiculous. Bigger is better only applies to certain things and the motorcycle front wheel is not one of them :)

  18. 18 backyard customs Nov 20th, 2013 at 1:51 pm

    i agree with doug from mad wheels there are people who what the look. i am building 3 baggers with 30″s and 2 with 26 s . and i do have customers who do not want to go that big but will buy a 21 . the big wheel will fade in time and we will move on to the next big thing. but in the mean time this big wheel craze will feed the family and put nice christmas presents under the tree.

  19. 19 Septic the Sceptic Nov 20th, 2013 at 3:53 pm

    The bagger trend has absolutely no effect on my life, so I refuse to be upset by it.

  20. 20 Steve Carr Nov 20th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

    Although not on the same subject, The post you will find below by Cyril Huze back in 2009 helped clarify a whole bunch of questions and arguments.

    Please take just a few minutes to read this post, you may even take something away from it that will last a lifetime.

    “after all, cant we all just get along?”

    Cyril Huze Jan 7th, 2009 at 11:16 am

    Below, the email I received from Steve Carr, owner of “Ligtning Rod Motorcycles” and my answer to him.

    “Mr. Huze, There seems to be alot of opinion out there about what a “true” bike builder is. Sir as much as I respect you, I know you can answer this question so that it may help clear the air. Cyril, I am sure that you as a master builder do not “build” or “make” each and every part on the bikes you build, nor does anyone else build each and every part on a bike. Although some come close, no one person can build a complete bike with out the use of some parts from other makes, models, etc.. Please clear the air for us so that we all know where each and every one of us stand. This seems to be a very broad and passionate subject, especially for those that “seem” to have all the right answers and abilities. Any comments on this subject would be greatly listened to and understood by most”.

    Steve Carr,
    Owner Lightning Rod Motorcycles

    Steve, “A custom motorcycle is one that was not built before and will not be duplicated by the original builder (but can be copied).One which is not mass produced. A custom motorcycle can be built from the ground up or be modification of an existing factory one. A custom motorcycle can be built from factory parts used a different way or modified, from after-market custom parts or from fabricated parts or a combination of all 3 categories. A custom motorcycle perceived merit and value (emotionally & financially) is based on it’s aesthetic, innovation, performance & reliability characteristics.

    Each person being unique gives a different weight to each criteria. Like when composing a song, although people use the same notes, it’s the architecture and combination of parts which make a bike a “hit”. It doesn’t matter if the parts are bought, modified or fabricated. Only the final result gives a motorcycle its unique flair and “Custom” status. A true custom builder is anyone who is able, amateur or professional, to “compose” a motorcycle looking unique and extremely desirable. A master builder is the one who is able to do this on a regular basis for each of his creations. His merit is not only to create something new, but also succeeding in not duplicating his former work and, at the same time, showing a unique style identified at 1st glance as being his own”.

    Best.

    Cyril.

  21. 21 highrpm Nov 20th, 2013 at 4:49 pm

    the mountain bike (mtb) industry has 2 big wheel genres, 29ers and 36ers. so why not motorcycles, too? i’m waiting to see board track looking customs with these skinny & tall wheels on both ends.

  22. 22 seymour Nov 20th, 2013 at 5:24 pm

    well you aint spit if you don’t have them front and rear

  23. 23 Shifter Nov 20th, 2013 at 5:28 pm

    As always (99% of the time), Cyril is right. Clear thoughts and statements.

  24. 24 Eric Maurer Nov 20th, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    I want to see a 32/160 front with a 24/400 rear and a supercharged 182ci motor. If you are going to be big…. do it on a grandiose scale. Rake, trail and sanity be dammed!

  25. 25 Blackmax Nov 20th, 2013 at 7:13 pm

    Gave up “Big Wheels” when I was 8 yrs old
    See no need to go back to one now.
    23 inch front is big enough for anybody
    Same as anything bigger than 200 in the back is a waste
    just sayin’

  26. 26 James just another crazy Kiwi Nov 20th, 2013 at 7:21 pm

    Well I must admit that I have always liked a 21” avon shod wheel up front of a cool looking customised bike…looks TITS, though always preferred spokes myself

    Back in the 60’s when people started dropping large quantities of Lysergic Acid (LSD)
    Things changed ! Before them times customising or chopping improved the performance of the bike. Made em faster , lighter or brake better ( maybe) or something.

    It may not have been the Acid ,though I’m sure it helped with some cool paint jobs.
    Whatever it was things have never been the same ! ! !.

    I have an Ed Roth Choppers magazine from back then explaining how to put a Horse sulky wheel on a motorcycle.
    This is old shit it was done nearly 50 years ago.

    Fads come and Fads go !!! Just like humans, except we don’t get reinvented unless your Bhuddist of course..

    It’s a load of malarkey ,but it helps somebody survive. By getting someone else to think they need to spend money to get one.

    A fool and his money……………………sorry for being so cynical

  27. 27 Iron Horse Nov 20th, 2013 at 8:05 pm

    Right on Eric! Go big or go home.

  28. 28 Badams Nov 20th, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    Eric nailed it, I was thinking the same thing.

    I think these kinds of experiments help evolve the industry regardless how grotesque they are seen.

    People tripped on Car tires in the 80’s then came the Avon 230 in the 90’s, then insanity @ 300 in the mid 2000’s and the bottom fell out. Now its back to 180-200; seems the bikes evolved around the parts finding a middle ground that’s business and profiles well.

    Fat tire billet blobs, lane splitting flake’d shitboxes, pimp glides, thug bikes, etc etc etc…….whatever, they are all fun.

  29. 29 Alan Nov 20th, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    NO thank you

  30. 30 Woody's Nov 20th, 2013 at 11:02 pm

    Coolest thing ever would be that front tire on a bike with the rider wearing a Mardi Gras big head! http://www.carlmack.com/data/media/18/king_big_head_6607.jpg

  31. 31 Boots Nov 20th, 2013 at 11:29 pm

    Can’t say I care much for a 32″ wheel. I am glad there is enough variety for everyone!

  32. 32 nicker Nov 20th, 2013 at 11:31 pm

    When i read:
    “… How about giving people credit for breaking ground …”
    I’m think-n; Oh ya, like “…give-em credit for braking wind…”…. :-)

    But hay, custom stuff is all about whatever floats your boat.
    So, having said that, if ya come up with something off-the-wall, ya gotta man-up and face the “Feedback..”

    There is no free lunch.

    -nicker-

  33. 33 DeeDee Diamond Nov 21st, 2013 at 7:22 am

    The Misfits have overdone it in my eyes, far too much silicone in those gals.

  34. 34 Bigalyts Nov 21st, 2013 at 9:52 am

    Cyril, this is only about creating a new Business or Source of income for the motorcycle Industry, and some of you need to get in on the Ground Floor………………. “Custom Wheels” or “Big Wheels” will be available to all in the Hood and we will be able to Finance them and pay monthly. They will be called “Rims” in the Future. Just kidding…..I think!

  35. 35 tommy Nov 21st, 2013 at 10:03 am

    Oh dear god, here we go again! 32″……REALLY??? I would LOVE to see how that POS wheel/motorcycle hanldes the road, turns, stops, etc…. 23″ is Plenty big if you ask the rest of us.

    Stop the wagon wheel madness.

  36. 36 Martin@Bagger Nov 21st, 2013 at 10:15 am

    This trend is ridiculous anyway. I can’t wait for those guys to close shop when this is all going to go away. HD built a bagger for long distance, comfortable rides, not to shoot flames and look like a bunch of lowrider morons, parading in Sturgis like a freak show.
    There is no breaking ground here and certainly no trend setter. Arlen Ness is a trend setter, as Kuryakyn is to some extend. Misfit and others are just the same guys who decided to put a 360 tire on a back of a chopper thinking it was the coolest thing on the planet. Worked for a year and now, it’s all gone. Same with this stupid big wheel crap, your ass sitting10 inches from the ground and your pipes shooting flames so the girls think you’re cool.
    The market is so small for this that it’s not even worth it. Big wheel means cutting your neck and changing the geometry of the bike. Good luck when you are trying to sell it in a few months when all this goes away. There is a reason why stock HD maintain their value and those horrible “customs” are losing 70% of their value as soon as you leave the parking lot.

    We are all about change and innovation. This is not… it’s a dick measuring contest, which unfortunately is very common among the industry. In the meantime, have fun with the girls… surely help selling a useless $2000 wheel…. not.

  37. 37 richard Nov 21st, 2013 at 11:21 am

    Cyril’s music analogy is right on.

  38. 38 1550tc Nov 21st, 2013 at 3:31 pm

    Ok so do i hear a 50 inch front wheel

    Conestoga Wagon F–K no :)

    Come on all you bagger builders, we need a Penny-farthing bagger ASAP

  39. 39 Dave Smith Nov 21st, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    I think I’ll get one of these, then put a 10″ wheel on the back. That way I can gaze at the stars while riding down the road at night (just before the total darkness).

  40. 40 rob Nov 22nd, 2013 at 12:15 am

    Put a new swingarm and a 12″ on the rear………………………………it’s the 1890’s.

  41. 41 Wilhelm Nov 22nd, 2013 at 5:10 am

    The best place for something like this is on somebody else‘s motorcycle.

  42. 42 BobS Nov 22nd, 2013 at 8:25 am

    You guys, c’mon. I think you’re forgetting how badass this will look with multi colored led’s flashing from inside the fender!

  43. 43 Scott Nov 22nd, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Flip that tire over and use it as a coffee table!

    Seriously, opinions are like nose holes, everybody has some — that’s what these boards are about.

    I’m going to give you an educated opinion — I have a bike with a 26″ — built correctly, by a builder who has done many(over 50). I towed a trailer behind it at speeds from 75mph -90mph with no wobble, no shimmy, no vibration. So at speed the bike is awesome.

    Around town, at slow speeds, turning — a little heavy out front. Hit a pothole, or a low spot in the road — you may bottom out the suspension on the front — you lose a little travel — even with the fairing moved up 2″.

    I really liked the look of the 26″, still do, but if I did this again, I may stick at 23 — although the way the bike looks really would make me want to stay 26.

    How much function over form do you gain dropping down to 23″ from 26″ — probably a good deal of control at low speeds. I seem to spend more time traveling straight, then turning left, so I think I’d be willing o sacrifice a little control for the sheer awesomeness of looking at that massive wheel smiling at me. (not for everybody — some guys like chubby girls too!)

  44. 44 tommy Nov 22nd, 2013 at 10:07 am

    So what happens when you hit a pothole with a rubberband aroun that wheel?? POOF! there goes $2K haha, suckers.

  45. 45 Terence Tory Nov 22nd, 2013 at 10:54 am

    Scott,good to hear from someone who has actually ridden on one of these wheels.

  46. 46 Bozack Nov 22nd, 2013 at 12:25 pm

    LMAO…all you bozos who were talking smack when the 23″ came out are now kissing it’s ass. LOL. And who the hell is Terence Tory other than some douchebag who hits this forum every day? LOL. I love this blog…all we need to do is add some vaginas and a coffee table…well, maybe just the coffee table at this point

  47. 47 Terence Tory Nov 22nd, 2013 at 1:03 pm

    Bozack,:RE:23″ inch wheels-“are now kissing it’s ass”,more like the smart ones are embracing their wallets with more passion than ever.I’m convinced most guys think they are a joke at others expense.

  48. 48 paparay Nov 24th, 2013 at 10:49 am

    O ya

  49. 49 dooley Feb 8th, 2014 at 7:47 pm

    It amazes me that there are so many folks that make negative comments on topics that they truly know nothing about. Its like folks that talked sh*t about air conditioning before they finally was able to afford it. Those that said that the microwave was so dangerous (which could still be true, LOL) until they finally used one, and now can’t live without one.
    I recently had a rider talk to me about my 26″ and said man I should have listened to you long ago. He builds and knows bikes but was against the big wheel until he finally rode one. Bottom line is we all have our opinions but don’t base them on lack of experience. Ride a big wheel bagger before you respond so harshly. That’s my opinion. LOL

  50. 50 skinny denny May 7th, 2014 at 1:20 am

    The bigger the wheel the smaller the penis. The bigger the implants the smaller the I.Q. Some idiots will buy anything as long as they have a credit card. Self-employed equals unemployed. Steve Cook sucks!
