Steve has a 26″ Stumpjumper he is modifying to push it harder, and along with a 160mm fork, he’s now got a wide burly set of wheels that will make the most out of wider tires. The bike was designed around 26″ wheels, but Steve is putting a larger 650B wheel on the front, where we used the really wide WTB ASYM i35 rim. On the rear, a 650B will not quite fit, so we used a wide 26″ Velocity Blunt 35. Hope’s great and versatile Pro 4 hubs keep things spinning, and Wheelsmith’s DB14 spokes and alloy nipples round it all out. Two pair of red spokes per wheel add to the custom look.
