That looks really extreme :shock:
I´ve never seen such a large tire.
This site really is awesome, as are its contributors.

Would a 650B function with my stock judy xc do you think?

Those snow tires are fun. gil_m here has a thread on his full snow bike.

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ht=pugsley

Not sure if the 650B tire will fit on a Judy XC...I don't have a front wheel. My 26" bike has been converted to fat front/650 rear only. But I do have a Judy XC fork. I will check for you when I get around to build the front wheel.

Actually, how does a 650B ride?
Seeing the frame is the same, is it slower in handling?
How does it take trails?
I´m really starting to be interested in it :)

It rides about as fast as the 26" rear wheel. Definitely not slow starting like the 29er.

The fat front is heavy but takes out bumps like a monter truck abd it's fun in snow, very stable in snow.

Just wanted to update with a picture.
This is what it´s gonna look like, except the front wheel.
That´s gonna change this spring.

Have a nice weekend :)
