Not so much fashion, I'm building up a surly ECR which is designed around 3" tyres. I'm not convinced that a 35mm rim of which there are a few available will provide enough support.
These appear to be the only easily available wide 36 hole 29" rims http://www.unicycle.uk.com/29-kris-holm ... e-rim.html
Unless any one has anyone has any other suggestions.
OK, I see what you mean, I agree a low pressure 3" tyre won't be supported very well unless it is on a wide rim. I'm still wondering if it is a fashion driven rim though...
If you were using a 2" (or smaller) tyre, I'd argue that a 36h hub would be a better choice, strength/rim-selection wise.
The unicycle rim looks good but if push comes to shove and you are stuck with a 32h rim you could
- buy a new hubshell for your rohloff...? or
- build a 32h hub onto a 36h shell, using a multitude of different spoke lengths (not easy...ask me how I know.... )
