26" Wheel on a XC... sits about at factory height. Rides like a dream. No heavy feeling... handles like stock.

Front end looks good but now the back end kills the overall look.. unless you give the back end some bigger shoes this won't work (for me that is)...

That big ol' rim makes the bike look kind of goofy IMO but that is just me.

Looks amazing. I agree that it's not for me, but I still think it looks great. Very custom and unique. I would consider doing do a 21", but that's tall enough for me. Great looking bike.

Ok, fine.....

I really like the back tire. It looks functional and sturdy.

Here's a band-aid........

Im with you! Not a big wheel guy, 21" and a little rake and id be good.

Maybe if you're in church or something...

In the real world, constructive criticism can be useful, and that's just what everyone's contributed. This definitely looks very unique and interesting and it sure as heck will draw attention (and comments). But, the front and back tires do seem visually out of sync somehow. Maybe it's just a matter of getting the same profile tire?! Or maybe it's just the angle of the camera?! Dunno.

A lot of times you don't know how things will come out till you try, and this definitely is the first 26in tire bike I have ever seen. cheers

HMD, how much for a rake kit like that? Do you have them that can still run the stock front wheel, so just a couple degrees? How many degrees is the one in the pic? How about for a 21" front? If I were to do one I would go to a 21 at most, even just a couple degrees with the stock front would help lower it a tad. thanks

Yes this is not for everyone.. but this kit is designed to allow you to add a 23" or in this case a 26" rim.. without cutting the neck ( bolt on kit). The ride and handling is very close to stock. You can actually make a u turn with ease. Handle well in the turns and low speeds. As for the rear tire. When we add stretched bags you wont even see the rear wheel. So why spend money on something you wont see?
Our rake kit is not built for the 21" wheel.. .sorry.

Here is a pic of the 23" set up below.

Thanks for the reply, how much rake does it add? Is it just a set of triple trees or more to it? Thanks!

I don't believe you need to do any rake to add a 21" wheel... If you buy a 120/70 r21 it only adds 3/4 of an inch which equates to 3/8" to your ride height. All I have to say is where are all the FAT BAGGER fans? I rode an SG with a 30" wheel and it handled great. As soon as I am done building the Highball I am going to build a KP bagger with at least a 23" wheel maybe a 26",
