This is a really interesting concept!!

Would really love to know more about the geometry as well as how much these larger diameter tires reduce rolling resistance?

Saw some dude test riding one in our local Walmart. He looked like a kid riding an adult bike.

Tires are gonna be rare, but the frame is swoopy and smooth.

More information about the tires:

http://forums.mtbr.com/9404215-post107.html

So for those doubting if it was a true 32", I measured it and it is a solid 32"tire. 32 x 2.125 tire size to be exact. The seat tube is 1 1/8".

The only possible lead for tire manufacturer is it does have "excel" written on the sidewalls. The tread pattern is identical to what Huffy Cranbrooks and Next La Jollas use. So I would figure them to be the same manufacturer.

Please post geometry measuring requests.

So far my plan is to measure:

1. Seat tube length
2. Top tube length
3. Stem length
4. Stand-over height
5. Bottom bracket height
6. Wheel base
7. Total length of bike. (Should be interesting considering the 32" tire diameter)
8. Rear triangle spacing

Anyone seen tires show up in Walmart? Or tubes? I feel they're going to have to at least put the tires and tubes on their website.
