We will have the 47mm 29-Plus sized version of the Popular Northpaw-S rim available in about 30 days! Available in Black, Gunmetal, Silver at $149. Custom powder coating is available for an additional cost.

While the development of the Northpaw-29+ was spurred by the inevitable availability of a 29×3.0 tire, this rim also works great with wider 29’er tires that are already available. We’ve tested Schwalbe Racing Ralphs, Schwalbe Hans Dampfs and Weirwolves in sizes 2.35 and up with great results and are looking forward to more tires choices and sizes!

Mounted Tire Widths:

  • Surly Knard 29 x 3.0 – 74mm at the Carcass, 76mm outer knobs.
  • Mountain King 2.4 – 58mm at the Carcass, 61mm outer knobs.
  • Hans Dampf 2.35 – 63mm at the Carcass, 60mm outer knobs.
  • Racing Ralph 2.35 – 63mm at the Carcass, 58mm outer knobs.

Kohler-Andre Harvest Beech Ride

7 fat-bike riders from Wisconsin and Illinois met at Kohler-Andre park a bit south of Sheboygan, WI for the Harvest Beech Ride. A nice mix of fat-bikes were in attendance with 2 Schlick Northpaws, 4 Pugsleys and a Mukluk. Fat-bikes are certainly becoming more popular!

We headed north out of Kohler-Andre State Park to discover how far we could go in that direction knowing we had 22 miles going south if we were feeling spunky. Turns out it is about 3.5 miles to the mouth of Weeden Creek and then the Sheboygan power plan looms up with rip-rap barricading the shoreline so we turned about and headed south past the park for a couple hour ride on a beautiful fall day in Wisconsin. Sweet day of fat-biking!
