Both the rear Double Wide rim and front wheel were ebay hock offs. Would you believe the rear rim went for one dollar!!! Built it up with a Ringle 36h rear hub - heavy but very solid. As for the front wheel it seems to take the hits and the hub can be converted from 20mm to QR.

Got the forks on ebay but luckily the seller had it under as motorcycle forks category (well they weigh as much a motocross pair) so alot of people missed sporting it. Here's a comparison pic of the size of the Monsters to a pair of 2002 Marzocchi Super T forks. Massive.


Always room for improvement my friend.

:wink:
